Back in Dr. Laura Schlessinger’s Orthodox Jewish days, she was very obnoxious toward gay people, making snarky statements about them. But since she stopped declaring herself a practicing Orthodox Jew, she seems to have mellowed considerably toward the gay community. Recently, on Larry King’s program, she stopped just short of endorsing gay marriage:
SCHLESSINGER: I still believe, as just every president has, and all the people who ran for office, that marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman. So not calling it marriage works for me. But that two people would have that sort of commitment to me is very healthy and very positive thing in their lives and society as a whole.
KING: So, you favor marriage between a man and a woman, but you applaud the fact that even people of the same-sex can have that kind of commitment to each other.
SCHLESSINGER: That’s a beautiful thing and a healthy thing.
Groovy kudos to Dr. Laura for her support of gay relationships.
