S.E. Cupp Advises GOP to Back Gay Marriage: ‘Conservatism and Gay Rights Should Be…Natural Allies’

TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp is advising the Republican party to get behind gay marriage once and for all. During MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” of which Cupp is a co-host, she said conservatism and gay rights, in theory, should be “natural allies” because conservatives want to keep the government out of people’s personal lives.

“There are parts of the Republican party in which gay marriage has already been decided,” Cupp said. “For Log Cabin Republicans like myself, the GOProud crowd, there are people who have already reconciled, within the party, gay marriage.”

She went on: “Conservatism and gay rights should be, in many people’s minds, natural allies — keeping the government out of private lives.”

But Cupp also said people should not mock or marginalize those, on the right or left, who have religious objections to the concept of same-sex marriage.

“They can have those points of view…I think, as a party, the GOP needs to get a little bit more tolerant about those issues. As a big tent party. Not personally. You can personally disagree with gay marriage if you want,” Cupp said.
