I wonder if he held that opinion before he found out his daughter was a lesbian.

 It's a better position than what Obama holds, but not quite as good as I'd like to see, considering I support federal intervention into this matter.

Well I wouldn't even go that far, I would however advocate a tax incentive to allow gay people to vote with their feet and move to states with better laws. I figure that will prevent the kind of public unrest that comes with forcing the majority to do something they don't want to do, and also give states an incentive to pass gay friendly legislation. After all having large numbers of people leave the state is a problem.

But you are probably right, if not for his daughter he would probably take the right wing position on this.
