Opponents of the Supreme Court's
finding that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to
marry pounced on President-elect Donald Trump after he declared the
an interview with 60 Minutes, Trump said that he was
“fine” with the ruling, though he refused to answer whether he
supports marriage equality, saying that his opinion was “irrelevant.”
“It's done. These cases have gone to
the Supreme Court. They've been settled. And I'm fine with that,”
Trump told Lesley Stahl.
“Same-sex 'marriage' is #notsettled
@realDonaldTrump,” tweeted Brian Brown, president of the National
Organization for Marriage (NOM). “SCOTUS betrayed the
constitution. Please stand up for the voters!”
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans
For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), messaged: “Memo to
@realDonaldTrump: if Roe v Wade (1973) is not 'settled law,' then
neither is Obergefell (2015). #SCOTUS should reverse both. #tcot.”
Christian conservative radio talk show
host Bryan Fischer sounded disappointed.
“Heads up to conservatives: we'll
have to fight Trump as hard on the homosexual agenda as we would have
had to fight Hillary,” he said in a tweet, though Trump, unlike
Hillary Clinton, has never said that he supports marriage equality.
