'Gays' wed by former California governor

A family advocate is not surprised by the news that California's former governor officiated the "marriages" of two homosexual couples while he was in office.

Though he has stated his personal belief in traditional marriage, Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) told CBS News during an interview with 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl that he officiated the marriage ceremony of his chief of staff, Susan Kennedy, and her partner in the governor's office.

The Republican governor also presided over the marriage of a former aide and his partner at the governor's home during the brief window of time when such unions were legal in the state.

Cass, Dr. Gary (DefendChristians.org)Dr. Gary Cass, president and CEO of DefendChristians.org, says this revelation is telling, but not surprising.

"It shows you just how deeply conflicted people are when they don't have a moral compass to guide them," Cass decides. "God is the one who defines marriage; God is the one who defines right and wrong, and when we elect people who have no Christian moral compass, then we get people affirming and asserting all sorts of chaotic laws.

"Arnold is a prime example of somebody who had no moral center, and therefore, by the end of his term, he was arguably no different than a liberal Democrat."

Schwarzenegger refused to defend California's Proposition 8 while he was governor. The actor-turned-politician's comments did not air during last month's segment in which he discussed his personal life. His statements are, however, published on the 60 Minutes website.
