Segment tonight the Supreme Court begins to hear the gay marriage argument.
In France perhaps as many as one million people are demonstrating against gay marriage the protests so intense police have used tear gas.
And in Washington however it's a different story there were also protests both in favor.
And against gay marriage -- the issue here not nearly as volatile as it is in France.
Fact the latest polling shows majority of Americans now favor gay marriage.
Wit us attorney and Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly -- before the French.
A lot of Muslims there.
And that's what's driving this anti gay marriage thing along with some conservative Christians they've allied themselves.
But huge -- Paris -- the anti gay marriage craft that's seeing -- here.
I understand there are two cases.
-- and so even I can understand which means you have to be very simple and talk slowly.
Okay well I came on your show when -- Supreme Court accepted these two cases and said I think this is going to be small ball I don't think these are the cases.
Where the supremes get the supremes are gonna say yes to gay marriage -- -- to gay marriage.
And I continue to believe that today all right the first case -- -- today's about California's gay marriage ban.
Which the voters passed they they put it into their constitution -- can't have gay marriage.
And there's a question about whether that is constitutional under the federal constitution can you do that.
And I think the Supreme Court based on what I heard today is gonna limit that their ruling in that case so that it's only get a affect California's in the -- will be California.
I really think -- they're gonna -- -- on procedural grounds they have a couple of ways to get out of deciding on the merits.
By saying -- you didn't have standing you people who are challenging the lower court ruling in favor of gay marriage you don't have standing to bring this case.
Or be you know we never should've taken this case.
So we're -- guys that's gonna cause a lot of I probably gonna dodge I don't think you will be surprised they -- -- -- -- died as a fan of people will like gay marriage are gonna be happy for a dodge got us happy is if they -- below and we'll -- in California though if they died that he's gay marriage is legal by -- yes so that just wipes out the popular vote.
There well yes it does but I mean I think at this point same sex marriage proponents will take -- with a -- win -- a -- and I think so too -- what about all -- people who voted against it marriage they're disenfranchise.
Yes they are but I mean that's our candidate there I think that's how you -- -- live with that that's how you think that's gonna condemn all while I still think how can profit then the other one is the defense of marriage -- sound like Bill Clinton who now.
Very very much regrets.
Now he's doing it now that he's not in the well but he makes a point of -- when he signed did as you know gay marriage was not.
Big or even really being discuss all our -- here isn't -- tell when he when he -- it wasn't a big deal now to be -- changes you know.
I'm sorry what Bill -- look at -- evolving standard let me say -- you don't get attached to it -- -- know that you don't wanna get attached to it.
Your phony Bill Clinton your -- it's the same exact issue same thing.
Right you sign because she thought it was going to be popular and now that it's not that so popular here against this is what sleazy policy issue that -- about Barack Obama too because he came out he was again -- you're not waiting until recently our site feel that way yet of course I do.
They handed they don't care about -- they don't care about gays if they cared about gays it would have been on board and the beginning.
And they want to eat this seemingly talking as much about gay marriage back and I'll tell you why they are today I'm sorry it's the same exact issue.
Right now you can change your mind on the issue which got to explain that in context other than politics.
All right how somehow.
You evolved on this issue.
I'm willing to listen to that.
But I don't believe any of this is sincere it's political.
And it's just awful I mean I think the country's views of this issue are changing their chamber and why are they changing.
Well because I think that the same sex marriage advocates have done any credible job getting out there in making their case I mean.
For years those who oppose gay marriage take their religion piece out of it for this because there's no arguing that I mean.
They bit -- Christian religion teaches what it teaches the Bible says what it says -- mean about marriage been an additional an autopsy shouldn't be made but I also take that bit right what I'm saying is that when you ask for example I had an interview with fit with Tony Perkins of the family research council what is it about.
Calling marriage calling a gay union marriage that offends you how does it hurt a traditional -- right heterosexual marriage and I didn't hear anything articulated that was particularly persuasive what people.
About and I agree with you a 100% -- a 100% and I hate to say this Kelly and next week I I I -- some in the -- that she's not like I -- -- a 100% apple at a compelling argument is on the side.
Of homosexuals that's with a compelling argument is we're Americans we just want to be treated like everybody else that's a compelling argument.
And to deny that you've got to have a very strong argument on the other side the I didn't notice -- hasn't been able to do anything there -- the by their best argument thus far has been.
Well marriage is an institution that for 2000 years is that about a man or woman kinda -- eighty's that's appropriate appropriation.
Well but look how society has changed -- people they talk today about would we be okay passing a loss in people over 55 can't get married.
Because they're not likely have been -- to the use of off for a minute I got a government.
I ice with civil unions -- always half.
Bright and -- The gay marriage thing I don't feel that strongly about one way -- the other -- I think to the states I think the states should do I think right Supreme Court is gonna come down your -- -- our democratic process I -- -- -- -- the New York, New York has fallen.
-- I want it -- Americans to be happy I do.
All right now real quick defense of marriage act as a Supreme Court can rule it unconstitutional.
I think it's a bigger trouble than that California you I really think tonight I think they might but I -- again I don't that's bigger than everything blue dot no it doesn't that get will be a small ball rolling at a dead yeah that that that the feds can't do what they did it still will leave it to the states states and that can impose any definition American yet all right.
Many telling everybody all you gotta tune -- next -- Didn't mean to all you are gonna all I feel so good -- yeah I I feel tonight.
We'll go to your house if you don't show I just didn't record how the drug bill you know he's not -- a good movements I'm trying to butter him up before next week and Nantucket.
