Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly says he does not believe gay people have a constitutional right to marry.

O'Reilly made his comments during a CBS This Morning interview with host Charlie Rose.

“Where have you evolved [on the issue]?” Rose asked.

“Well, I'm looking at policy the way I always do: What's best for the country,” O'Reilly answered. “And I don't think that a civil war over marriage is best for the country. So, I would like the states to decide what kind of society they want. So, if Mississippi wants a more traditional society and they vote to keep marriage between a man and a woman, I'm fine. If a mom wants to be a progressive paradise and they want gay marriage ...”

“Your view is simply leave it to the states?” Rose interrupted.

“Leave it to the states and the folks. So, I was outraged that the people of California vote for traditional marriage and then the Supreme Court finds a loophole to overturn that vote. That's not what America is all about.”

“I don't buy into the fact that homosexuals have a constitutional right to marry. I don't believe that. Because if that were true, then pluralists would, then Mormons could have more than one … you know, all of that.”

“But I do respect the fact that gay people want to be treated the same as everybody else.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
