A top conservative pundit has come out in support of same-sex marriage, stating that divorce, not same-sex couples marrying, is the real threat to the American family. Michael Barone, 67, a long-time conservative columnist, political analyst, pundit, Fox News commentator, and author, in an extremely-widely syndicated column, “Our Gay-Marriage Experiment,” today says, “the institution of the family is less threatened by a few people who want to get married than by the very many more people who get divorced or who have children without getting married at all.”
Barone, called, “the greatest political observer of his generation,” by the ultra-right RedState in 2008, starts out citing numerous polls that find a majority of Americans today support same-sex marriage, adding that a reason for the growing momentum of support for same-sex couples marrying “is probably that as people learn that friends and relatives are gay, they become more sympathetic to gay rights.”
Looking forward, Barone, a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner and a resident fellow at the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute, writes, “The Republicans’ problem is young voters. Huge majorities of them favor same-sex marriage, and for most of them it’s simply a no-brainer. They must have been turned off if they were watching the Republican presidential candidates vie with each other in opposing it in the Fox News/Washington Examiner debate in Iowa.
