At the Iowa state fair on Friday, Tim Pawlenty voiced his support for traditional marriage. In response to a question about gender-segregated marriage, Pawlenty said, "The relationship between a man and a woman in a traditional marriage is important to our county, our society, our culture. I think it should remain elevated."
This was in response to a man in the audience questioning Pawlenty's support for traditional marriage. He claimed, "You have not stood for us and that is really hard for me . . . I thought our country was about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for everyone, no exceptions." The man continued, "You are discriminating against me and it hurts. It really does."
There are no exceptions. Everyone with a gender can get married. This gentleman can marry in any of the 50 states if he chooses to pursue married happiness. But it sounds like he's discriminating against traditional marriage.
