Video: Tim Pawlenty Defends Marriage


At the Faith & Freedom conference:

Here is the transcript:

Traditional marriage matters. And we need to tell each other and the country that we need to keep traditional marriage elevated on a platform –- all domestic relationships are not the same. Traditional marriage needs to be protected and a mom and a dad and parents matter in a child’s life for obvious reasons and so it is a cornerstone of our a nation it’s a cornerstone of our social fabric to define marriage as between a man and a woman. I’m glad to be the co-author of the Defense of Marriage Act in Minnesota.
