MICHAEL KNOWLES (HOST): What I suspect — I don't know, I don't talk to Marco Rubio — what I suspect it is is that Marco Rubio doesn't think that gay marriage is real. I think Marco Rubio believes that marriage — he believes as virtually every single person for all of human history everywhere in the world — that marriage is between a man and a woman and that there is no such thing as same-sex marriage. And that Pete Buttigieg, though he keeps calling his relationship with this guy Chasten a marriage, it's not really a marriage. He has a long-term relationship. He has gone through a technological and financial process to purchase the eggs of a woman and then to create a child in a test tube with the intention to deprive that child of his natural mother so that he and Chasten can feel more like they're in a real marriage, a real marriage that has the possibility of generating children. But I suspect what Rubio thinks is that none of that is real. And that, actually, marriage does have a meaning and it has the same meaning it's always had. And we can't just radically change that. 


It's just that Pete Buttigieg isn't really married. And it's hard — I know it's hard to say that in our politically correct culture. But it's not because two guys can't be married to each other. Marriage is the union of a man to his wife. A perpetual union of a man to his wife for the sake of the generation and the education of children. That's what it is. And that's not possible between two men and two women. Marriage essentially has sexual difference at the heart of it. And so, if we call things that don't have that marriage, we don't expand marriage, we just get rid of marriage. If Pete Buttigieg and Chasten can be married, then marriage has no concrete meaning.
