Republican presidential candidate Ben
Carson said Wednesday that the Supreme Court's June ruling striking
down gay marriage bans nationwide is the worst decision by the high
court in the last 20 years.
Carson, who is polling a close second
behind businessman Donald Trump among Republicans, made the remark
during a Q&A segment with TheBlaze's Glenn Beck.
“Worst Supreme Court decision in the
last 20 years?” Beck
“Probably, I would say, the gay
marriage decision,” the former neurosurgeon answered.
When asked who he would appoint to the
Supreme Court, Carson declined to offer up any specifics.
In an interview earlier this month,
Carson told conservative radio host Eric Metaxas that allowing gay
couples to marry would lead to plural marriages.
Carson: Gay marriage “negates the word of God.”)
