"Rick Perry Is ‘Fine’ With New York’s Same-Sex Marriage Law"

Texas governor and potential presidential candidate Rick Perry (R), who is hosting an August prayer event dominated by anti-gay pastors and organizations and has a long track record of being hostile towards LGBT rights, said on Friday that he was “fine” with New York’s decision to pass marriage equality. “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, and 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.”
