Newt Gingrich has reiterated his opposition to gay marriage and support for reinstatement of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.”

At a candidates forum in New Hampshire held last Thursday, lesbian filmmaker Kristina Lapinski asked GOP presidential rivals Gingrich and Rick Santorum their thoughts on a federal amendment that would ban gay marriage, gay glossy The Advocate reported.

“Marriage is between a man and a woman!” Gingrich answered.

After the forum, Lapinski asked Gingrich a couple of questions related to gay rights.

On gay couples adopting children: “I favor adoption being between a man and a woman. Traditional families is what I'm in favor of. Period.”

When asked if he would reinstate “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the recently ended policy that banned gay and bisexual troops from serving openly, Gingrich said, “Yes. I voted for it originally.”

“And I agree with things Rick [Santorum] and others have said,” Gingrich added. “We shouldn't run the U.S. military as a social experiment. The purpose of the military is to win wars.”

Lapinski noted: “It seems ridiculous that my loving another woman could affect their religious freedom. These people want to completely halt the progress for LGBT people in this country.”
