Rev. Reggie Longcrier poses this question to John Edwards for CNN’s YouTube Presidential debate:
Sen. Edwards said his opposition to gay marriage has [been] influenced by his Southern Baptist background. Most Americans agree it was wrong and unconstitutional to use religion to justify slavery, segregation and denying women the right to vote. So why is it still acceptable to use religion to deny gay Americans their full and equal rights?
Edwards’ wife, of course, has said she supports gay marriage.
