Sarah Palin appeared on the Christian Broadcast Network yesterday to tell host David Brody that she supports the Federal Marriage Amendment, something her running mate has opposed. It’s the first time Palin has publicly offered an opinion on the FMA.
Brody: On Constitutional marriage amendment , are, are you for something like that?
Palin: I am, in my own, state, I have voted along with the vast majority of Alaskans who had the opportunity to vote to amend our Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I wish on a federal level that that’s where we would go because I don’t support gay marriage. I’m not going to be out there judging individuals, sitting in a seat of judgment telling what they can and can’t do, should and should not do, but I certainly can express my own opinion here and take actions that I believe would be best for traditional marriage and that’s casting my votes and speaking up for traditional marriage that, that instrument that it’s the foundation of our society is that strong family and that’s based on that traditional definition of marriage, so I do support that.
She’s not going to tell people “what they can and can’t do”, but is certainly willing to pass a federal law that does so.
