Advocates of same-sex marriage who attempt to equate those who are against it with racists are making a wrong-headed argument, according to a top policy expert.

"Obviously it’s a hugely inspiring narrative and it tries to put them on the right side of things,’’ Ed Whelan, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, told John Fund, guest host of Newmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’

Story continues below.


“But [since] as recently as a year ago not even President Obama . . . supported this radical redefinition of marriage, it’s quite remarkable they would try and make it seem as though those of us who support the male-female definition . . . that has existed until recently throughout all of human history are somehow the equivalent of racial bigots.’’

Whelan pointed to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s suggestion that traditional marriage — which has existed since the America was founded and long before — could hardly be seen as unconstitutional.

“The idea that marriage has existed for a century and a half . . . [and] has at all times been unconstitutional is so absurd.’’
