Bloomberg defends Fenty on gay marriage – by Lou Chibbaro Jr. – Washington Blade

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he would tell D.C. residents who oppose Mayor Adrian Fenty’s re-election bid because Fenty signed a law legalizing same-sex marriage that government should not interfere with any citizen’s right to marry.

Bloomberg talked about the same-sex marriage issue during a Washington news conference Tuesday in which he endorsed Fenty’s re-election bid.

“They have a right to believe what they want to believe,” Bloomberg said of same-sex marriage opponents. “But just as with religious freedom, I do not believe it’s the government’s business to get involved in family lives, particularly when no one gets hurt. And I think you should have a right to marry anybody you want, love anybody you want. It seems to me it is just as basic a right as everything else. Period. End of story.” Read more:

Gay marriage - Sexual orientation 
is less about sex and more about love, being one with another human being
