Writes Steele in a statement:
"Our party platform articulates our opposition to gay marriage and civil unions, positions shared by many Americans. I believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman and strongly disagree with Maine’s decision to legalize gay marriage."
The Plum Line notes that Steele's statement "puts him at odds with Maine’s moderate Senators, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both said today the decision should be left to the states."
Strange, in GQ in March, Steele said the issue should be left to the states. He must have received an abusive phone call from Rush Limbaugh.
