"I know a lot of people, actually a lot of people who are friends of mine in the gay community, who also think it was a bad decision."

Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma says he has a lot of friends in the LGBT community who thought the Supreme Court decision on Friday ruling bans on same-sex marriages are unconstitutional was a "bad decision."

"It's a very liberal court and we saw what happened last week,' Inhofe told the CBS-affiliated KOTV in Oklahoma on Friday.

"I've been disappointed, and I was not surprised. I thought they would rule the way they did. I know a lot of people, actually a lot of people who are friends of mine in the gay community, who also think it was a bad decision," he said.

Inhofe's statement released by his office on Friday merely said he was "disappointed by today's Supreme Court decision" and that his position had not changed.

"It is unfortunate that the Court took it upon itself to decide for the people what was being appropriately debated and decided in the states through the democratic process," the statement added.
