The Bachelor's Sean Lowe Can't Say That He Supports Equal Marriage Rights For Same-Sex Couples
After backward comments about the gay community made by Juan Pablo, the star of ABC's current season of The Bachelor, captured international headlines over the weekend, the star of the previous season of the reality show refuses to touch the subject with a 10 inch pole.
Greg Hernandez of Gay Star News caught up with Sean at an ABC network cocktail party over the weekend and asked his opinion on marriage equality in wake of Pablo's gaffe.
"That's an interesting question," Sean told Greg. "I tell you what, just because of the political nature of the question I'd rather not answer."
"I haven't gotten it before,' he added. "I'd have to sit down and talk to you for like an hour to fully get my opinion across."
Though he can't exactly get behind seeing us as anything more than second class citizens, Sean is definitely "flattered" by having gay fans.
"It's all very flattering," Sean said. "I remember the National Enquirer or something like that had this big article about how I was the new gay icon or sex symbol, I forget how they phrased it. It's flattering."
Why would it take an hour to say you support the equal rights of same-sex couples, Sean, unless you actually don't support marriage equality and need a full hour to justify your (lack of) logic somehow? How hard is it to say, "Yes, I support equal rights for all Americans who wish to marry?"
