Thanks a lot for Chiming in Zeljko is here with his announced -- Fox News contributor at tele con is her Twitter hit over the -- selling Ecstasy your so I know you have a lot to sit in it.
Did you -- respond to any of these jets first -- but.
You know I think.
Bit -- overarching.
Legal issues here and I think is also a matter of our values as a country.
Is -- never in the history of our nation have we put the issues of any minority group up to majority -- This is that this is why we in fact have a supreme -- -- court says Boehner no you can't discriminate against women you can't discriminate against black people you can't hit.
That is that violates our constitution -- it violates the legal values of our nation.
So it's not.
Up for majority vote that the fundamental values are not up for majority -- that's the sort of number one thing here and the piece about the federal government's role is look.
Like it or not and we can just being whether the government should be in this business.
Over -- housing benefits to couples get from the federal government because they -- immigration reform Social Security taxes all kinds of benefits.
Right now the government discriminates.
Based on sexual relations what do you get those benefits -- not plain and simple and there is no legitimate reason to do so.
Therefore it's unconstitutional what you think's gonna happen with Tillman.
-- is an interesting case because both I think it violates again the sort of spirit and principles of of our -- of our country but also one of the things don't widows which I think should concern states' rights advocates is it says that the government the federal government will not.
Will not give full faith and credit to the laws of the state and in fact one state is not required to give right and that is stay there are sooner -- say.
Yeah the federal government should.
Have to abide by the loss of the states so people saying.
Let's leave this to the states this talk about that but all right so the eight states that -- have said.
They legalized gay -- the federal government should have to recognize that it if you believe in some version of you know the sovereignty of states.
So what you are you surprised at all by the court of public opinion houses it's sort of like a tidal wave that's just shifting.
It -- but some people who normally wouldn't be and supportive I think that there you know.
I mean I think you know look.
The world changes.
Right and I think even people -- good conscience who felt conflicted about this issue knew that ultimately they would be on the wrong side of history.
And see especially how their kids -- their grandkids.
You know are much more open minded.
And embracing of difference than older generations work.
What I -- I think is very fast and -- -- the way that even that some of the most staunch opponents of marriage equality.
Are now trying to take it out of the moral.
Judgment round and say no no we're not weighing in on your marriage and your relationship and were just saying the state should give the fight it out that you feel that is it just political -- of personal.
Assignments becoming toxic.
To be seen as opposing.
Gay and lesbian templates in America I think that's great it should be you know the idea that.
You know the public schools -- my kid goes to can't teach my kid.
That is -- that her family as a loving and and wonderful and legitimate family.
Which a lot a lot of folks on the far right have fought for years.
That's secretly I don't they're two different species snow right as we're now we're -- -- -- that marriage period.
Well what we're talking look there's -- not communities plus in the school but our fathers -- -- community that's been fighting.
Marriage equality all this time.
Isn't just interested in.
You know formal -- people say you can have the rights and benefits don't -- marriage but a lot of it is we do not want these relationships to be elevated.
To the same legal moral societal standing as straight relationships that's that's the grounds that some of -- religious what is an abomination -- lot.
Number I'm setting is as innocent people who say you should be able talk about the school if you shouldn't be able to.
You know you shouldn't be able to have good lead in boycott -- all of these -- every -- and -- I understand your point.
But anything like.
Kind of first -- for her great and so that's all I'm saying don't you think I'm -- losing I'm saying that the point is is that even -- you are saying I don't know.
Just let it -- -- states issue and not trying to fight the moral grounds and which is as good -- do you feel.
Indeed but who knows well what bring someone to their decisions -- just asking kind of how you see it.
Do you feel that these decisions are being made because as -- said they want don't want to be on the wrong side of history and is it easier for them to.
Those who are changing their minds to change their minds and say OK you know what -- -- evidence that they don't have to make a choice against something that they really still you know.
Perhaps in their fiber believe it's not right.
Easier to make a choice they -- -- -- -- thinks some.
For instance you know is a lot of tea -- reading around Supreme Court right now one of the most interesting things is that apparently the Chief Justice John Roberts known conservative.
Gave one of his passes to the hearings today to his lesbian cousin.
You know and and we see this the same thing in it was more more conservatives especially start to come out and -- -- part of this having.
Days members -- and this isn't anything new this goes back to -- Dick Cheney.
The supporting gay -- early on because there's nothing daughter and when the -- gay people you know this isn't everything.
And it doesn't say the laws are important and legal protections but it's hard it's it's wanting to have an anonymous -- it's nothing to look at someone you know and say yeah I don't think your relationship should be equal -- That's hard to do for most people are right with silicone always good to see if they play much of the Fox News contributor at Kelly -- if you had a -- efforts to -- we don't care of their mind thank you --
