“Marriage is a religious institution. The federal government has no business redefining what it is. Governments should not be in the business of promoting a behavior that’s proven to be destructive to our society.” – State rights advocate Sen. Jim DeMint, who doesn’t think states should have the right to grant same-sex marriage.
DeMint on the possibility of a gay or lesbian president: “It would be bothersome to me just personally because I consider it immoral.” DeMint has refused to call on SC Gov. Mark Sanford to resign over his highly moral trip down the Appalachian Trail.
