Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Sunday called the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges marriage ruling “lawless” and pledged to uphold religious liberties in his state and fight any attempts to use coercion that would violate the conscience of those who oppose same-sex marriage by forcing them to participate in such unions.

In a blistering critique of the landmark decision, Paxton wrote: “Friday, the United States Supreme Court again ignored the text and spirit of the Constitution to manufacture a right that simply does not exist. In so doing, the Court weakened itself and weakened the rule of law, but did nothing to weaken our resolve to protect religious liberty and return to democratic self-government in the face of judicial activists attempting to tell us how to live.

“Indeed, for those who respect the rule of law, this lawless ruling presents a fundamental dilemma: A ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court is considered the law of the land, but a judge-made edict that is not based in the law or the Constitution diminishes faith in our system of government and the rule of law.”
