Republican reaction from the Georgia Capitol on gay marriage ruling

Reaction was much more muted at the GOP-led state Capitol. Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, a Republican, acknowledged the decision but was in no mood to celebrate it.

In this April 28, 2015, file photo, demonstrators stand in front of a rainbow flag of the Supreme Court in Washington.

“My faith teaches me that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Cagle said. “I also understand the role of the Supreme Court under our Constitution.  As we navigate this challenging issue, we must do so in a way that respects the deeply held religious beliefs of many like myself while also upholding the rule of law.”
