This is a fun exchange and an interesting one to boot. Heritage scholar Ryan Anderson makes the point that same-sex marriage isn’t illegal in any state, meaning if two people decide to have a wedding ceremony and can work out a place of employment that will give them benefits, they won’t be penalized for doing so by fine or imprisonment. He argues what is at issue at the Supreme Court is a re-definition of marriage for everyone to include same-sex couples which of course would give it the same legal rights and protections as traditional marriage between a man and a woman.
But Don Lemon says it is illegal and won’t let up on the argument that it is illegal even though Anderson tries to point out he’s using the wrong word, that it isn’t illegal at all. And it pretty much goes until nearly the end of the segment.
