Thomas Roberts Gets Personal on Marriage Equality: VIDEO


MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts took off his professional hat for a moment yesterday to talk about his marriage last September to his husband Patrick.

Said Roberts:

"I don't think that we would have gone for a civil union. Getting married in the fall was something very personal, and very incredible! ... It's only made our lives better...The otherness, it's time for that to go away....If the Supreme Court gets rid of DOMA and goes ahead and strikes Prop 8 out of the way, is that going to get rid of homophobia in this country? No. But it does make the government stand up to appreciate the fact that the LGBT community exists in this country. We're good taxpaying Americans..."
