Audio: Sen. Hatch (R-UT) admits marriage equality inevitable, praises 'excellent judge' who ruled in favor of equality

by Jeremy Hooper

Via KSL Radio's "The Doug Wright Show":

"Let’s face it, anybody who does not believe that gay marriage is going to be the law of the land just hasn’t been observing what’s going on"...We have an excellent federal bench [in Utah]. Other federal judges down there might not have arrived at the same conclusion that these two have. But I think it’s a portent of the future that sooner or later gay marriage is probably going to be approved by the Supreme Court of the United States, certainly as the people in this country move towards it, especially young people. I don’t think that’s the right way to go; on the other hand, I do accept whatever the courts say...There is a question whether they should be able to tell the states what they can or cannot do with something as important as marriage, but the trend right now in the courts is to permit gay marriage and anybody who doesn’t admit that just isn’t living in the real world."

So basically he wishes it weren't, but he knows it will be. I am more than willing to live with that!

Hatch also praised the LGBT-inclusive Employment Nondiscrimination Act, for which he voted. Though he stopped short of saying he'll dance on a float at the Salt Lake City pride parade.
