Carly Fiorina changes her mind on banning same-sex marriage

“I think the Supreme Court ruling will become the law of the land and however much I agree or disagree with it, I wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse it.”

— Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, Republican contender for the 2016 presidency, speaking with conservative blog Caffeinated Thoughts about an impending Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

Fiorina apparently no longer supports the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would seek to ban gay marriage, something she has previously advocated for. However, in February she told The Christian Post that she believes a Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage is “the worst thing [they] can do right now.”

Previously, Fiorina has advocated for civil unions for same-sex couples instead of marriage equality.

“I do believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, but also have been consistent and clear that I support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples,” she said in 2010, according to Huffington Post.
