Charisma News 27 July 2014
Are you ready to take a little test? I’m going to ask a series of short, informational questions followed by one philosophical question, so the test is in two parts.
Part One: Informational
Who said this and when did he or she say it?
Quote: “I remain opposed to same-sex marriage. I believe marriage is an institution for the union of a man and a woman. This has been my long-standing position, and it is not being reviewed or reconsidered.”
Answer: That was former President Bill Clinton in an interview with the flagship gay publication The Advocate in 1996.
Quote: “I think that the vast majority of Americans find [same-sex marriage] to be something they can’t agree with. But I think most Americans are fair. And if they believe that people in committed relationships want to share their lives and, not only that, have the same rights that I do in my marriage, to decide who I want to inherit my property or visit me in a hospital, I think that most Americans would think that that’s fair and that should be done.”
Answer: That was former Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a CBS News interview in 2003.
