Supporting 10th Amendment, Gov. Perry “Fine” with NY Gay Marriage

07/22/11 Rumored Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he’s “fine” with New York’s recent passage of gay marriage — because he supports states’ rights.

Speaking at an Aspen, Colo. forum Friday, Perry called himself an “unapologetic social conservative” who personally opposes gay marriage, but is also a firm believer in the 10th Amendment, the Associated Press reported.

“Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex. And you know what? That’s New York, that’s their business, and that’s fine with me,” Perry said. “That is their call. If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business.”

CBN News’ The Brody Report observed some of the potential problems that could arise from Perry’s comments with his evangelical base:
