On Tuesday evening Piers Morgan shared his studio with Suze Orman, as the finace guru and television host joined the program for its entirety, sharing her insight on everything from bankruptcy and taxes, to same-sex marriage and Tiger Woods (spoiler alert: she's happy for him, but feels the controversial Nike ad was a mistake by the global shoe company.)
As part of Orman's visit to "Piers Morgan Live," the author of ten books engaged in a spirited debate with fellow guest Ryan Anderson. A 31-year-old with expertise in bioethics and natural law theory, Anderson researches and writes about marriage and religious liberty as the William E. Simon Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, and is of the belief that marriage is meant to exist solely between people of opposite genders:
"All Americans have the right to live and to love how they choose to. And we don't need government redefining marriage to make that a reality," he stated, further explaining his stance that politics ought have no role in dictating how relationships are recognized. "I want the right to marry to be for everyone. The question is 'what is marriage?' I think that marriage is intrinsically, what it is, is a union of a man and woman, a husband and a wife, a mother and a father."
After listening patiently and politely, Orman eventually earned an opportunity to counter:
"I feel compassion for you, and I'll tell you why," began the woman, who in February 2007 said she is a lesbian. "I know that you believe very strongly what you believe, but I also know that you're very, very uneducated in how it really, really works. And I believe from the bottom of my heart that if you really, really understood why the government does need to get involved, why it does need to be legal on a federal level, if you really understood that, there is no way that you would sit there and say what you are saying right now."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Anderson offers his impassioned response to Orman, a woman who's been married to her wife Kathy Travis since 2010.
