Giuliani tells GOP to stay out of people's bedrooms

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is no stranger to CNN's State of the Union, nor is he a stranger to the LGBT community - he has notably been referred to as 'Gay-friendly' by the press for some time. But it was his comments on the July 17 edition of State of the Union that drew headlines. Giuliani told his fellow Republicans to 'get the heck out' of same-sex marriage.

'I think the Republican Party would be well advised to get the heck out of people's bedrooms and let these things get decided by states,' said Giuliani. 'We'd be a much more successful political party if we stuck to our economic, conservative roots.'

But is this all lip service? After all, it was Giuliani who said he would preside over his Gay friends' marriage once it was legal in New York, but then backed out when they asked him to do it last month.

In fact, his statement on marriage equality was lackluster, as well. 'I'm glad that people who felt discriminated against have that, sort of, burden of discrimination lifted,' read the statement.

When asked by CNN about marriage equality in New York, Giuliani responded, 'I think it's wrong, but there are other things that I think are wrong that get decided by democratic vote. & I see more harm, however, by dwelling so much on this subject of Gays and Lesbians and whether it's right or wrong in politics.'
