Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty wants there to be no doubt that he opposes gay marriage.

The presidential hopeful created a stir in recent weeks when he vowed to undo repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the soon-to-be repealed law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.

During an Iowa appearance organized by The Family Leader, a group that opposes gay rights, he told the crowd that he would support reinstatement of the law.

When asked by Think Progress' Igor Volsky if he would support “rescinding the funds for implementation of repeal,” Pawlenty answered: “That would be a reasonable step as well.”

In a new interview broadcast Monday on Fox News, Pawlenty made it clear to host Greta Van Susteren that he is opposed to giving gay and lesbian couples the right to marry, as well.

“A marital relationship between a man and a woman is unique. It had, and should continue to have, an elevated place and position in our society for obvious reasons. And I'm not at the point, nor will I ever be at the point, where I say all domestic relationships are the same as traditional marriage. They're not.”
