Colin Powell Backs Same-Sex Marriage
General Colin Powell is all for same-sex marriage.
Just a couple of weeks following President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage, America’s favorite General is joining in.
“I have no problem with it,” he said during an interview airing on CNN. “In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that’s called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president’s decision.”
General Powell went onto say he has “A lot of friends who are individually gay but are in partnerships with loved ones, and they are as stable a family as my family is and they raise children. And so I don’t see any reason not to say that they should be able to get married under the laws of their state or the laws of the country.”
