This is whats hard for me, John Edwards is the canidate that i choose to back. However, he opposes Gay marriage. I am for it. But like he says in the clip, his wife is for it also. The questioned asked at this debate was if you can use religion to deny gay marraige? And they preacher who asked, madea good point because it has been made clear religion couldnt defend things like slavery, etc. John Edwards does however say, even though it is his personal belief, he would not bring his religious views into his policy making if he was elected. He urges that religion does need to stay out of the White house, and Hopefully all future Presidential prospectives will keep it out.
