Openly gay and recently married Sam
Champion, an anchor on The Weather Channel, says he does not
understand the arguments of gay marriage foes.
Champion first discussed his sexual
orientation last year in announcing his engagement to his now
husband, photographer Rubem Robierb.
Appearing on Piers Morgan Live,
champion told host Piers Morgan that he can't understand how someone
could be against love.
“With all the debate about gay
marriage in particular in America moving so fast and so many states
embracing it, where will we be in even ten years time do you think in
America?” Morgan asked.
“Piers I hope it's just a regular
conversation. I hope you're able in this country and really in the
world, why shouldn't you be, to proudly talk about the person that
you're in love with, that you share your life with and have no one
bat an eye,” Champion answered.
“I cannot imagine being unhappy for
someone who is in love. I just can't. It's beyond me. It's an
argument I can't even launch to make because I don't understand the
other side,” he added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
