Statement regarding a Dallas judge’s ruling that Texas’ definition of marriage is unconstitutional

Yesterday a Dallas judge ruled that Texas’ definition of marriage is unconstitutional. Judges should not legislate from the bench. Texas voters overwhelmingly adopted this provision as a part of our state constitution. Throughout the U.S., states have voted to protect the definition of marriage as between one man, one woman. Texans should be outraged a single judge has undermined the citizens of the state of Texas. Our state's constitution is for the people, by the people. It is our constitution which guides the bench – not the bench that guides the constitution.
