I had a couple of concerns that -- to.
To talk with him about one was.
I couldn't get there from the scripture that I read.
And he understood that that's one of the reasons he was calling me he knew I'd be in a different place.
That was reverend -- hunter he is a spiritual advisor to President Obama.
He was on America live with Megyn Kelly talking about the president's so called him ahead of his announcement that Obama.
Was reverting to his previous support for gay marriage.
And this is power play welcome back and we are very fortunate to have joining us by telephone.
Who was the person who did that interview miss -- how we doing today and you.
Good and you know I wanna tell -- this Internet it's probably really upset that I'm not the one doing -- you're not the one on camera -- that that is true I.
-- very exciting I don't see any opposition out you don't have interviewed Leo -- -- -- We do this each and every day -- -- it is the dominant thirty minutes of Internet political television of the 1130 half hour.
It's an offense that's pretty it's a pretty big deal -- -- I.
And you are and you are -- getting ready for your show which is kicking off.
And I want I want to religiously noted that it would interviewers they watched what I mean they're listening to everybody what that's.
You know everybody in -- shot.
Yeah request that I couldn't help them integrate my show but well I in the -- -- -- be there.
The phrase key the key phrase here is ain't too proud today.
All right -- and so that is the question as you you head this preacher on.
Reverend -- Who talked about scriptural differences that he and the president saw.
In your take away on this do you think he felt that the president was sincere.
And reaching a conclusion that the Bible supports the concept of game here.
Now I don't think that's what he was yeah.
That he got the -- listen here that he thought it was the right thing to do broad support gay marriage but that.
He didn't find -- -- scripture got you there and you get right he believes that you look at scripture as written.
You know it's.
Live lives of thousands of years ago you have to stick by that even if they think convenient than 2012 and -- you think the president comes -- a more from a place that's.
You know -- -- and what he thinks -- the right thing under modern day standards.
I certainly for.
You've -- -- itself.
That do reverend hunter didn't like having to be but bringing this critique of somebody that he pretty clearly feels like it's a friend and a good guy.
Absolutely and he had a history of supporting Republican -- -- Republican voted twice for George W.
Interested Huckabee in -- Republican primary back in 08.
But he -- to be content that I didn't spiritual advisor at least one of them I didn't but I called him.
My spiritual advisor.
And he's -- Just -- to -- both sides of the island really wanted to get better barometer reconsider.
How this could be consistent with that -- -- get that that's what Barack Obama played it.
The door and saying he didn't support it you know that -- can -- -- they didn't allow for it.
And guys that -- sound like he's been scheduled -- gotten over that hump.
Now -- we also borrow your skills as an attorney.
To clarify something for us that is can you don't.
You know -- I mean look first of all it was a setup and and I totally innocent in all of this noted the yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- -- You know how it is in Northern Virginia very stringent know the that is the question is.
The president says that gay marriage is states' rights issue.
And that the state should be able to determine.
But gay marriage activists say that the Supreme Court in a ruling loving vs Virginia.
That banned the practice.
That did that there's clear case law that says that the right to marriage is a federal concern.
-- can the president hold these two ideas something.
But certainly that's an ongoing issue of course about whether or whether you'd it is discrimination -- -- -- -- gay marriage legally and but won't let her dad is a fundamental right for the right to marry and whether.
Finally in other words.
Who spoke to a post game -- about -- there is no load.
I think he did it -- or lesbian letter from the area.
There's just I think them.
Marrying a person is exactly.
Aside their fundamental right to -- -- they can do it necessarily with anyone they want.
Did you know that they're just being hashed out and of course it will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court -- -- -- fair -- equal protection side.
That would protect its right.
But you know the president is is.
In trouble but I bet you can't see he's -- Michigan State's rights issue word he's saying English.
You contraception -- to -- and regulated at the federal level and those aren't that's not a speech read this year.
There's an inconsistency.
Is legal approach to -- issues and I can't think it's pretty clear it doesn't it but it's definitely the political expediency.
And it's nothing.
Politician before and haven't -- as well.
Last question do you think the president is done holding on this subject before.
The election or do you think there is more evolution to com.
That's a good question I don't you can't get better than I would I digital it's no idea I think a lot of things that people need to be honest about dictated how much you know they criticized Romney for all of this flip -- there have been -- -- field.
Is that this isn't clear slipped by about president -- back in 1980 and he's supported gay marriage and that he said he didn't think it would estate -- -- Then he comes out -- sixty required them to not support gay marriage.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Isn't just like you only -- one position and now his evolution has to get into another started out initially expected 1986.
All of this different than -- politically you don't.
-- serving time for him doesn't.
The usual the world of politics shouldn't shock anybody.
So it -- without complete this step further it says ballot no longer believe that you can have -- beastie tried issue.
That's a different in terms you know the politics but.
It wouldn't be total -- either get that to combat I think it was 1986 position as well.
Internet -- Kelly you can see her as well let's hear her at 1 o'clock on the Fox News Channel where she will be talking about all this stuff.
And so much more in her very very wonderful show ms.
