In a Fox News interview yesterday, Mitt Romney said he thought it was fine for gay couples to adopt children, but he doesn’t think they should be allowed to marry.
Maybe I’m just too old-fashioned, but I think most of the time children are better off when their parents are committed to each other in marriage rather than merely cohabiting. Apparently Romney disagrees, but he doesn’t even try to explain why.
Also, when a reporter recently asked Mitt Romney about his position on same-sex marriage, Romney suggested that it was a silly question to ask him because he was running for president and marriage is a state matter. But in the clip above he says there should be a national standard limiting marriage to mixed-sex couples.
(Updated: TPM finally got this clip into their YouTube channel, so I’ve switched to video above to use that, which means the earlier problem with tiny clip size is gone.)
