WATCH: Gay Marriage Is Not A “Universal Human Value,” Says Paul Ryan

Addressing a question from an audience member at a town hall in Cincinnati today, Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan defended his stance against same-sex marriage: “The things you talk about like traditional marriage and family and entrepreneurship. These aren’t values that are indicative to any one person or creed or color. These are American values, these are universal human values.”

Apparently Ryan thinks it’s okay for gays and lesbians to die fighting for their country, but not to tie the knot in it.
