Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) criticized the Republican party for opposing equality for gays and lesbians during an interview on CNN, saying, “I think beyond all the religious and social part of it, it makes the party look like it isn’t a modern party. It doesn’t understand the modern world”:
Giuliani, who has supported civil unions, says he still believes marriage should be between one man and one woman, but can “live with” the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York. He has called on Republicans to “get the heck out of people’s bedrooms” and “ease up a little bit” on social issues.
Polls have overwhelmingly shown an age divide on gay and lesbian rights, with an overwhelming percentage of younger voters supporting full equality for the LGBT community. (HT: Towleroad)
