Elizabeth Warren abandoned the strongest defense of gay marriage for mean-spirited, sexist pandering

Article here. Excerpt:

'Morgan Cox, board chairman of the Human Rights Campaign, asked the insurgent presidential front-runner what she'd say to a religious person who argues, "my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman."

"Well," Warren replied. "I'm going to assume it's a guy who said that, and I'm going to say then just marry one woman. I'm cool with that, assuming you can find one."

To start with an obvious falsehood, men and women support government-recognized gay marriage at nearly identical rates — 61% and 66% respectively. Warren's implied sexism here isn't just distasteful. It's also built upon a statistical lie, which isn't a surprise.

But more significant is Warren's entire approach to the question. Rather than argue as gay rights advocates have for decades that government recognition of a contract doesn't impede religious institutions, Warren ignores the implied religious liberty concern entirely and then relies on a rude insult.'
