Republican presidential candidate Ben
Carson said Friday that he hopes Congress will reverse the Supreme
Court ruling declaring state bans on gay marriage unconstitutional
with a “creative” law.
When Iowa talk radio host Simon Conway
asked Carson whether he thought the decision was “a done deal,”
Carlson replied that he did not.
“I hope it will be revisited because
the reason that we have separation of powers is to prevent runaway
courts, runaway executive branch, runaway legislative branch,”
said. “The laws are made by the legislative branch. And, you
know, you can make a law to negate virtually anything, you just have
to be creative in the way that you do it. So no, I don’t think it’s
over by any stretch of the imagination.”
Carson added that as president he
“would certainly get involved” in undoing the decision.
an earlier statement, Carson had said that the marriage equality
ruling is “the law of the land.”
