Former Texas Governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has accused the U.S. Supreme Court of ignoring the 10th amendment with its decision to overturn all gay marriage bans in the country.

“Regardless of what any court says, true marriage will always be between one man and one woman,” said Perry via press release. “This truth is biblical and a super majority of Texans have affirmed this through the democratic election process. It is a shame that once again the Supreme Court has decided to ignore the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and decided to legislate from the bench and impose their will on the states.”

The Supreme Court ruled in favor (5-4) of legalizing same-sex marriage Friday (June 26).

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Steven Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Anthony Kennedy were the majority opinion in the decision. Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito dissented.
