In a conversation with Bill O’Reilly on why he avoids culture war issues, Glenn Beck admitted that he doesn’t think gay marriage should be a political issue.
“Honestly, I think we have bigger fish to fry,” Beck said. “You can argue about abortion or gay marriage or whatever all you want. The country is burning down…I don’t think marriage, that the government actually has anything to do with…that is a religious right.”
“Do you believe gay marriage is a threat to the country in any way?” O’Reilly asked.
“A threat to the country? No, I don’t,” Beck said, laughing, adding mockingly, “Will the gays come and get us?”
Beck quoted Thomas Jefferson: “If it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket, what difference is it to me?”
