Marie Osmond: ‘Everybody Has a Right to Have Civil Rights’

Marie Osmond, whose gay daughter was just outed by the tabloids, was initially said to be a gay marriage foe based on her Mormon beliefs. She called Los Angeles radio station KOST 103.5 to clear things up: “Everybody should have the right to share homes and finances with somebody that they care about. On those types of things, I’m very supportive. When it comes to marriage, I think that civil rights need to be for all. … One of the things that we need to be careful is that we don’t create hate, because people believe certain things. And we can’t make everyone become homogenized. Everybody has a right to believe what they believe. I do think everybody has a right to have civil rights. That’s how I feel.”
