Despite the fact that same sex marriage is banned in 30 states, former hack movie reviewer turned current hack conservative radio host Michael Medved said Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that no state has ever banned gay marriage and any claim to the contrary is “a liberal lie.”
“There has never been a state in this country that has ever banned gay marriage,” Medved said during a panel titled “Can Libertarians and Social Conservatives Ever Get Along?” after another panelist referenced historical discrimination against LGBT couples. “That is a liberal lie.”
Prior to Medved’s comment, Alexander McCobin, president and co-founder of Students for Liberty, a libertarian group, said that the religious liberty that had historically been repressed had been “the liberty of those religious institutions and practices that support same-sex marriage.”
“The government has prevented them from engaging in the religious practice that they want,” he said.
If no states have ever banned same-sex marriage, then I wonder what Medved thinks it is that federal courts have been overturning?
Michael Medved. Two thumbs up…….his ass.
