Ted Olson on Face the Nation

AFER lead co-counsel Ted Olson appeared on Face the Nation to discuss President Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality.

“It’s very important for everyone, Republicans and Democrats alike, liberals and conservatives, to recognize the rights of individuals who love one another to get married and to be respected and be treated with equality and dignity…”

In a roundtable discussion later in the show, Ted said:

“Marriage is a conservative value…People that love one another, that wish to form a stable bond, a part of our economy, a part of our community, that should be a conservative value.”
