Elizabeth Warren on Same-Sex Marriage at Equality Town Hall

Warren Buttigieg Unveil LGBTQ Rights Plans Campaign Update

Warren Buttigieg Unveil LGBTQ Rights Plans Campaign Update

CNN and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) hosted the latest Democratic presidential town hall in Los Angeles, Calif. focused on LGBTQ issues with nine of the presidential hopefuls, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttegieg, Senator Kamala Harris, former Vice President Joe Biden and more.

During the event, Warren was asked: "Let's say you're on the campaign trail and a supporter approaches you and says 'senator, I'm old fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.' What is your response?" And I'm going to say, "Well, then just marry one woman". Harris said her pronouns were she her and her's, I said mine too. But Warren is showing that conservatives don't have a monopoly on faith and that Christianity doesn't inherently equal an opposition to LGBTQ rights.

Fans of Warren quickly took to social media to praise her for the quick comeback, with one Twitter user writing that her answer reminded him why he finds politics "so thrilling and, at times, uplifting".

Elizabeth Warren's response to a question about same-sex marriage has gone viral. "And I'm going to say, 'Then just marry one woman".

The crowd broke into laughter and cheers as Warren shrugged her shoulders. The National Centre for Lesbian Rights tweeted: "Dear Chris Cuomo, people's pronouns are not a punchline".

That wasn't the only awkward moment in CNN's town hall.

The response drew loud applause from the crowd-and from many people online.

"The first song I remember singing [in church] is, 'They are yellow, black and white".

"To me, it's about what I learned in the church I grew up in. Jesus loves all the children of the world", she sang. It is really about the preciousness of each and every life.

He wrote that he was an ally of the LGBTQ community and is committed to equality.
