Texas Gov. Rick Perry clarified his widely-reported statement from last week that he’s “fine” with gay marriage, saying during a Christian radio interview Thursday that is “obviously” not the case.
Perry’s comments came during a forum in Aspen, Colo. when the Republican governor — widely assumed to run for president — said New York’s recent passage of gay marriage was “fine with me” because of his support for states’ rights.
“I probably needed to add a few words after that ‘it’s fine with me,’ and that it’s fine with me that a state is using their sovereign rights to decide an issue. Obviously gay marriage is not fine with me. My stance hasn’t changed,” Perry said in an interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.
