Obviously tired of being on the losing team of haters, Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown attempts to drop a smoke bomb by telling folks to just "move on" from the marriage equality "issue" in Massachusetts. The full quote and video after the jump!
Speaking with CNN's Piers Morgan on Monday night, Brown attempted to distract from his unpopular position.
MORGAN: Massachusetts is one of the states that’s approved gay marriage. How do you personally feel about that?
BROWN: Well, it’s settled law in Massachusetts. Quite frankly, everybody’s moved on.
MORGAN: Do people care that much? I mean, those who argue against it say this is like the end of civilization as we know it.
BROWN: Certainly some people care. And others have moved on. But they’re really concerned about how they’re going to pay their mortgage. Both people, gay and straight, they’re wondering about how they’re going to pay their mortgage, or if their kids and families are going to come home safe as they travel around the country and the world.
It’s debt, deficit, taxes, spending, jobs, national security. We’ve moved on. I encourage everyone else to move on. It should be decided state by state basis. I’m focusing on those other things.
But has Brown himself "moved on" from his opposition to equality? Not so much. Earlier this month he reiterated his anti-gay position against marriage rights for same-sex couples, calling civil rights nothing more than a "social issue."
