Ellen takes on Palin.»

From: Think Progress

Last month, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) told CBS that she wouldn’t “judge people” based on their sexual preferences. However, just a few weeks later, she admitted that she nevertheless doesn’t believe in marriage equality and voiced support for the Federal Marriage Amendment. Today, Ellen DeGeneres responded to Palin’s comments:

I don’t know if you saw this, but vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin said she’s in favor of a federal ban on gay marriage. Basically, she wants to change the constitution. So if you’re wondering — I’m sure you are — how I feel about this, I don’t like it. I don’t like it. I don’t agree. … And I don’t know what people are scared of. Maybe they think that their children will be influenced, and I got to say — I was raised by two heterosexuals and they did not influence me.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has come out against a federal ban on gay marriage. However, Palin yesterday reassured James Dobson that McCain has privately said that he will support far-right positions if he is elected president.
