Anti-gay serial adulterer Newt Gingrich has slammed the new marriage equality law in New York. The thrice-married Republican presidential candidate says "marriage is between a man and a woman" and the new law demonstrates the nation is "drifting toward a terrible muddle," reports Reuters.
[Gingrich] said he thinks the nation should be defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as being between a man and a woman.
In February, the Obama administration decided it would no longer defend the 15-year-old law. "I think the president should be, frankly, enforcing that act, and I think we are drifting toward a terrible muddle which I think is going to be very, very difficult and painful to work our way out of," he said.
The former House Speaker is one of the architects of the Defense of Marriage Act, which he pushed through Congress at the same time he was involved in an extra-marital affair with a staffer.
