Video – 80 Year Old Iowa Grandmother Speaks Out For Gay Marriage

“I wasn’t always this broad-minded…when our son came out to us in 1980 we were stunned, confused, and angry. We blamed ourselves and wondered what we had done wrong as parents. Years later, after the shock wore off and we saw the life our son had created with his future husband Bob, I realized that he’s still my son and that in many ways nothing had changed. I also realized that we had done nothing wrong as parents…

The actions and words of some affect my son, his husband, my family, and my grandchildren. My son is not an issue. He is a person just like you….I am outraged by the way gay marriage is being used by some to further their own political ambitions.”

Go Granny! Go Granny Go!
