"That whole gay issue thing, that's never bothered me. I've never seen what that affects and [why] anybody should care - and they never do affect me. First of all, we're going to stop somebody from getting a marriage license because they're gay? You won't stop them from living together, so what have you accomplished? ... Wasting a lot of money here and a lot of time that could be spent working on this deficit that we're under ... I never saw the reasoning behind getting in people's personal lives."
