Amidst the aftermath of a wildly controversial op-ed published in the "Ironton [Ohio] Tribune," on Wednesday "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Michael Reagan to the show, offering the returning guest an opportunity to share the context and perspective behind his writing.
As part of the live interview, Piers Morgan reviewed specific sections of Reagan's piece which he found to be particularly offensive, including the portion where he projected the future of gay "culture" among Americans:
"Ultimately about changing the culture of the entire country; it inevitably will lead to teaching our public school kids that gay marriage is a perfectly fine alternative and no different than traditional marriage. There is also a very slippery slope leading to other alternative relationships and the unconstitutionality of any law based on morality. Think about polygamy, bestiality, and perhaps even murder."
"I think it does send a slippery slope," offered the adopted son of former President Ronald Reagan, defending his op-ed. "I think if you accept the redefinition of marriage then you're going to have to accept the redefinition all the way down the line."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Reagan offers further insight into his thinking, even surprising Morgan by saying "two loving gay people, I think it's wonderful."
