Fred Thompson on Gay Marriage: “So Be It”

Fred Thompson talked to the Des Moines Register editorial board about his position on gay marriage:

“My approach is to look at it as a, as framing the constitutional amendment as narrowly as you can and still achieve the purpose you want to achieve. It’s a judicially-created problem and mine would be a judicially-created solution. Which could say, in effect, that a judge couldn’t impose this, state or federal. Unless they had the acquiescence or unless the state legislature moved on its own to put it into law. If a state chose to recognize it, and the governor signed off and signed it into legislation, so be it. My opinion – that would be a very bad thing, a very surprising thing.”
