VIa JMG: Schlafly: Gay Rights Violate Free Speech
"The polls are very defective. If you look at the polls, most of them
the question: Are you in favor of banning same-sex marriage? Now, we
have no law that bans same-sex marriage. Any gay couple can get married—
all they have to do is find a preacher or justice of the peace who will
perform the ceremony. There's no law against that. What they are
demanding is that we respect them as being OK, and that's an
interference with our free speech rights. There's no obligation that we
have to respect something we think is morally wrong." - Phyllis
Schlafly, who goes on to praise her "honorable" gay son for working with
her at the Eagle Forum.
