British Prime Minister David Cameron
says that he supports gay marriage because he believes in family.
Cameron, who is campaigning for another
five-year term, strongly supported changing Britain's marriage laws
to include gay and lesbian couples.
Gay couples started marrying in Britain
and Wales In March. The first same-sex marriages took place last
week in Scotland.
Cameron told the Daily
Mail that he has yet to attend the wedding of a gay couple.
“Lots of people have invited me and
sent me lovely letters saying if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be
able to marry the person I love,” he said. “But I haven't been
to one yet. I'm sure I will soon.”
When asked whether he did it for
libertarian reasons, Cameron answered, “No, I'm not a libertarian.”
“I believe in it as a man who
believes in family and marriage. I don't see why gay people who love
each other shouldn't be able to as well,” he said.
