US Senator Marco Rubio lashes out at courts for striking down gay marriage ban

Marco Rubio, one of the two US senators from Florida, is not happy that same-sex marriage is now legal in his state.

The Republican is lashing out against the courts that struck down the state’s gay marriage ban and opened the gates for hundreds of same-sex couples to get married this week.

“If they wanted to change that law, they should have gone to the legislature or back to the Constitution and try to change it,’ Rubio tells Politico. ‘I don’t agree we should be trying to make those changes through the courts.’

He adds: ‘While I believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman, while people want to change that law — and a lot of people apparently do – there is a way to do that. You go through the legislature, or you go on on the ballot, but I don’t agree the courts have the power to do this.’
