Ellen DeGeneres and John McCain Don't Have a Gay Ol' Time

by at . Comments

John McCain wants America to stay in Iraq eternity. But when it comes to homosexuals vowing to love each other for the same period of time?

Not so much.

Ellen as a Judge

"I just believe in the unique status of marriage between man and woman," McCain told well-known gay talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on her program. "And I know that we have a respectful disagreement on that issue."

DeGeneres, to her credit, took the senator to task for his views, declaring:

"We are all the same people, all of us. You're no different than I am. Our love is the same."

Ellen, of course, has announced that she and Portia de Rossi will be married later this year in California. McCain responded to that news - and the general news that the Golden State Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of gay marriage - as best he could:

"People should be able to enter into legal agreements, and I think that is something we should encourage, particularly in the case of insurance and other areas."

DeGeneres said that arrangement "doesn't feel inclusive… it feels… isolated." It was a tense interview, one we admire Ellen for conducting and McCain for putting himself through.

Where do you stand on the issue of gay marriage?

I am against gay marriage. I dont vote for a president on that issue though. But, I will be voting for John because he is qualified to be president. I think he would make a great one.

I am a married woman and totally for gay marriage. Straight people have been ruining marriage for years and it's not sacred anymore. Gay people should have the same rights as anyone else.

I am totally for gay marriages. I am straight and it doesn't affect how I feel about how much I love the person I marry. In fact it doesn't affect me at all and if it makes others happy than good.

I am against gay marriage. It's not just my religious beliefs, but my values as a person in general. I would never discriminate against a gay or lesbian person, but at the same time, I also believe being tolerant of gay marriage makes it a normal behavior, and that's not okay.

I'm against. They don't need to be married to be together. But still, there shouldn't be hate crimes either just because of their sexual preference.

Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

I’m thrilled that the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage. I can’t wait to get married. We all deserve the same rights, and I believe that someday we’ll look back on this and not allowing gays to marry will seem as absurd as not allowing women to vote.

You showed us something in that film that I have not seen for a very, very long time.
