Perry doesn’t like the gay marriage thing

Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued this statement in response to a ruling in a Dallas court that two men could get a divorce:

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today made the following statement regarding a Dallas judge’s ruling that Texas’ definition of marriage is unconstitutional:

“Texas voters and lawmakers have repeatedly affirmed the view that marriage is defined as between one man and one woman. I believe the ruling is flawed and should be appealed. I am confident that Attorney General Abbott and the will of Texas voters will prevail, and traditional marriage will be upheld in our state.”
