Donald Trump opposes same-sex marriage

Real estate mogul and possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently appeared on the 700 Club in a taped interview segment. Trump discussed “radical” Islam, abortion and of course, his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Touting his conservatism, Trump claims to be pro-life and oppose same-sex marriage in the interview, which appears on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Explaining his stance on same-sex marriage, Trump acknowledges his position is not popular with his fellow New Yorkers:

“First of all, I live in New York. I know many, many gay people. Tremendous people. And to be honest with you, as far as civil unions are concerned, I haven't totally formed my opinion," Trump says in the interview. “But there can be no discrimination against gays. I'm against gay marriage, I took a lot of heat for that.”

Outspoken: Ann Coulter, Jimmy McMillan, Donald Trump and more…

BBC 1 radio DJ Scott Mills

“Like many of you, I was always a friend of the gays ... and then liberals come around with some idea that no one has thought of for a thousand years: gay marriage. ... The left is trying to co-op gays and I don’t think we should let them. They should be on our side. We’re for low taxes, we’re for low crime, we’re against the terrorists that want to kill gays. Gays are natural conservatives.”

— Conservative pundit Ann Coulter, who last year headlined a gay conservative conference called Homocon but opposes gay marriage and gays in the military, speaking Feb. 12 at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington. (On Top Magazine, Feb. 13)
