Herman Cain Promises to Support a Federal Marriage Amendment

 

An exclusive from the Brody File:

Herman Cain met with me one-on-one for a few minutes after the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition event in Des Moines, Iowa.

David Brody: (In your Faith and Freedom speech) “You mentioned marriage as well so you’re also, just so I understand, you’re for a constitutional marriage amendment as well?”

Herman Cain: “I think marriage should be protected at the federal level also. I used to believe that it could be just handled by the states but there’s a movement going on to basically take the teeth out of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and that could cause an unraveling, so we do need some protection at the federal level because of that and so yes I would support legislation that would say that it’s between a man and a woman.”
