Every now and then, someone of Fox News makes sense. Shepard Smith compared the states resisting same sex marriage in the U.S. to those states who wanted to keep segregation in tact in the U.S. during the Civil Rights Movement. This comes as the U.S. Supreme Court will hear four different cases challenging same-sex marriage in four different states — Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee.
Smith said, “Not in every case, but in most cases, the same states which were fighting integration are fighting this as well.”
“Those states which always seem to be behind the curve for reasons which are explainable and understandable. Those are the places where this is going to turn out to be the most difficult, especially if the Supreme Court stays with what has seemed to be a trend toward inclusion and away from discrimination.”
He addressed Wall Street Journal editor John Bussey’s comment that “there’s still disagreement on this issue within the American population, saying, “There’s still disagreement on segregation.”
