Perry Backs a Constitutional Limit on Marriage

Saturday, 30 Jul 2011 02:44 PM

 


COLUMBIA, S.C.  — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he supports a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to a man and a woman, though just last week he said New York's gay marriage law is fine with him.

In an interview Saturday with The Associated Press, Perry said he supports federal limits on who can marry but also supports the right of states to decide whether gay couples can wed.

Perry says the theory of evolution has holes in it and that a creator, not an accident, is responsible for life.

Some conservatives are urging Perry to run for the Republican nomination for president. The Texas governor tells the AP he'll decide by Labor Day whether to make a bid — and that his campaign would be about jobs, not gay marriage or evolution.
