During a “Fox News Sunday” debate on same-sex marriage, host Chris Wallace and Ted Olson, a Republican lawyer and gay marriage advocate, teamed up to press Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on his fierce opposition to marriage equality.
“Marriage is not to affirm adults, it’s for the protection of children,” Perkins argued at the beginning of the discussion. “And if love is the only factor, where do you draw the boundaries?”
Perkins continued to harp on the “natural established boundaries for marriage.”
“What are you suggesting? That there’s going to by polygamy, that people are going to be marrying their aunt, their pets?” Wallace asked.
“I didn’t say that,” Perkins responded, again bringing up “boundaries.”
“Alright, you and your wife live happily in this house.There’s a same-sex couple living here. What’s the damage to you?” Wallace then asked.
Perkins replied by bringing up wedding vendors put out of business by refusing to serve gay couples.
“It’s a different issue,” Wallace retorted.
