NEW YORK, NY (ABC NEWS) – The LGBT community observed annual Pride celebrations around the country this weekend.
This year they were celebrating the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling too.
Many republican presidential candidates, however, see nothing in that decision to celebrate, and much to resist.
Pulsing through the streets of New York City, San Francisco, and Minneapolis was an eruption of love.
At the Stonewall Inn, where the gay rights movement began, a marriage of two men was performed by New York’s governor.
On the presidential campaign trail, social conservatives aren’t cheering the Supreme Court’s decision.
“It was marriage re-definition,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told ABC’s This Week that the fight is not over.
“What about county clerks? Should they issue same-sex marriage licenses,” asked George Stephanopoulos.
“If they have a – a conscientious objection, I think they should be excused,” Huckabee said.
All the 2016 Republican candidates oppose the court’s decision. But the question is what should they do next?
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz want a constitutional amendment that allows states to re-impose their bans.
But with nationwide support for same-sex marriage at an all-time high, some Republicans are signaling it’s time to move on.
“It’s the law of the land, and we’ll abide by it,” Ohio Governor John Kasich said.
Same-sex marriage now a reality facing GOP candidates in every state where they campaign.
