  • Quotes

    • Sandy Rios: I think now that (Bush has) made his statement, we're at least glad he's saying that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's a good start. And so there is some relief that he has come out strongly saying that. I think we have a reason to be happy. Sorry you're not happy about that.

      Bill Maher: Well, you know, Constitutional Amendment, that is a pretty serious thing to do. We have thousands and thousands of laws, but the Constitution is pretty short. For something to rise to the level of a Constitutional Amendment, tell me why gay marriage rises to that level?

      Sandy Rios: Bill, we have a crisis in our country. Even if you were in favor of gay marriage, we've got anarchy going on, especially in San Francisco. (audience reacts with laughter) And now the mayor of Chicago is insisting that he is going to endorse homosexual marriage. We have marriages taking place in New York and New Mexico. This isn't .. this is a breaking of the law. This is lawlessness. (audience laughter)

      And regardless of how you feel about that issue, it should not be allowed. I don't know why your audience is laughing. (laughter) If it were an issue that they were against, they would be very upset about this.
