Former Secretary of State Colin Powell isnt yet ready to endorse a presidential candidate, but on Wednesday evening, he endorsed same-sex marriage. Powell, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1993 when Dont Ask, Dont Tell was implemented, said in an interview on CNNs The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer that he has no problem with marriage equality and speculated that most Americans are prepared to adapt to changing times.
As I've thought about gay marriage, I know a lot of friends who are individually gay but are in partnerships with loved ones. And they are stable a family as my family is, Powell said. And they raise children. And so I don't see any reason not to say that they should be able to get married under the laws of their state or the laws of the country, however that turns out. Its seems to be the laws of the state."
The retired four-star general also said that while religious institutions are entitled to not embrace what for them remains a highly controversial issue, state and federal governments are not and should treat heterosexual and gay unions equally.

You watch! He’s bucking to run on the RAT ticket for 2016, or Hussein has told him to be ‘on stand by’ if he decides to throw his Clown VP under the bus in August.
Isn’t it odd that so many conservatives once idolized this obscure officer plucked to fame by Reagan and the first Bush?
Only his mother cares. And it probably won’t be ‘news’ to her.
Well, of course he would. Colin Powell was always sucking up to the Washington D.C. and New York media elite - and nowadays endorsing gay marriage is the “in” thing to do.
You mean Colin Powell removed the Presidential member from his mouth long enough to speak?
Not only is he dishonorable, willing to let Scooter Libby go to prison when he KNEW for three years it was Richard Armitage, his deputy,was the leaker in the Valerie Plame affair, but he has proven to be a four star @sshat as well.
Colon—please leave the GOP and join the Democrats. After all, you have really always been one.
Well isn’t that special.
Another supposed Christian who refuses to read what God says about the subject in the Bible.
Q. What’s brown, smells bad and you don’t want to go anywhere near it?
A. Colin Powell
Powell caught the Commie Cancer or is it the Red Plague?
What does “individually gay” mean?
If not for Norman Schwarzkopf he would just be another name we would have forgotten by now.
But then, old Colin thinks a man should be able to marry a knothole in a fence.
It seems that everyone is turning their back on G-d...this is NOT going to end well.
It never has in the past. The Old Testament testifies to that for numerous nations.
It is like there is a mass deception taking hold of America and its people. I can only imagine that this is what happened in Germany in the 1930s--a modern, technologically advanced, educated society, embracing sheer madness.
Yet, there is always a Gideon or an Elijah, and thousands who have never bowed their knees to Baal.
Pray for America. This election affect every living American for years to come, for better or for worse. Like 1860 and 1980, it will determine our destiny as a country.
Good grief. What a blatant opportunist. To hell with him.
Strong delusion is referenced in Thessalonians...
“Hey Colon Fowlhole, STFU!”
Colin Powell, the architect and persecuter of honorable soldiers who told the truth about the My Lai massacre.
It’s not surprising that Anus Powell’s decided that’ s where other men ought to put it.
