Video: Family Research Council Compares Gay Marriage to Suicide

| by Michael Allen

Family Research Council Vice President Tom McClusky told an audience at the 'Watchmen on the Wall' conference, today, that people should not support the right of same-sex couples to marry just as they should not help a depressed neighbor commit suicide (video below).

McCluskly was upset that President Obama cited the Golden Rule, when he endorsed marriage equality.

McClusky said: "It should be pointed out though that contrary to what the President thinks the Golden Rule alone tells us nothing one way or the other about whether to support same-sex marriage... in the absence of any moral standard then it would mean then that I would have to give my depressed neighbor. I would have to assist him to commit suicide if it was just a matter of doing what he thinks is best."
