NJ governor: Gay marriage ruling a 'bad decision'
Thursday - 6/27/2013, 12:51pm EDT
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling erasing part of a federal anti-gay marriage law was a "bad decision" and an example of "judicial supremacy."
In January, the Republican governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate vetoed a New Jersey same-sex marriage bill. On a radio program Wednesday, he said he'd do the same to any new legislation.
If an "institution that's over 2,000 years old" is to be changed, he says a referendum should be held.
The Supreme Court struck down a provision of a federal law denying federal benefits to married gay couples.
Christie calls it an "example of judicial supremacy rather than having a government run by the people we actually vote for."
He also says, "I thought it was a bad decision."
