Romney: ‘I Don’t Discriminate’ Against Gay People

Romney was asked about his position on gay rights, and said “I don’t discriminate” against gay people. “And in the appointments that I made when I was Governor of Massachusetts, a member of my cabinet was gay.”

“I made it very clear that, in my view, we should not discriminate in hiring policies, in legal policies,” Romney continued. “At the same time, from the very beginning in 1994 I said to the gay community, I do not favor same-sex marriage. I oppose same-sex marriage and that is my view.”
