Did Dr. Laura Actually Call Same-Sex Relationships "Beautiful" and "Healthy"?

She sure did! While not coming out and advocating for same-sex marriage, she spoke highly of committed same-sex relationships. This is newsworthy because she has a national following for her radio show and books, where her views are hardly warm, fuzzy, or particuarly forward-thinking.

However, on a recent Larry King show on CNN, Dr. Larua was, for a moment at least, all of the above. Thanks to TruthWinsOut for the link:

Larry King: But you’ve always favored that marriage must be between a man and woman.Laura

Schlessinger: I’m very big on human beings finding love, attachment and commitment and being faithful to it, because there’s more to benefit when there is real true commitment and faithfulness to it. I still believe, as just every president has, and all the people who ran for office, that marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman. So not calling it marriage works for me. But that two people would have that sort of commitment to me is very healthy and very positive thing in their lives and society as a whole.

King: So, you favor marriage between a man and a woman, but you applaud the fact that even people of the same-sex can have that kind of commitment to each other.

Schlessinger: That’s a beautiful thing and a healthy thing.

Can't argue with that.
