Tim Pawlenty:
Marriage Between A Man And A Woman Should Be Elevated


Oh boy.

Presidential Candidate Tim Pawlenty appeared today on CNN's State of The Union with Candy Crowley to explaon why he thinks same-sex couples are not deserving of equal rights.

"A man and a woman are joined together for obvious reasons," said the presidential candidate.

He continued, "I think when society devalues traditional marriage by saying all other domestic relationships are the same as traditional marriage you then dilute and devalue traditional marriage."
