Ryan T. Anderson of the conservative Heritage Foundation claims that several of his gay friends oppose marriage equality.

“There are several people, who I know personally, who themselves are gay, who don't think there's anything wrong with gay relationships, but who are not in favor of gay marriage. They say, 'Whatever a gay relationship is, it's not a marriage,” Anderson told an audience at Union University, the private evangelical Christian liberal arts university located in Tennessee.

Anderson, the author of What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense, challenged Piers Morgan and Suze Orman on the issue of marriage equality during a televised townhall last March.

In a profile which appeared in The Washington Post's On Faith section, Anderson denied the inevitability of marriage equality.

“People called Marxism, socialism, the Equal Rights Amendment, now abortion rights inevitable,” he said. “I don't think anything in life is inevitable.”
