GOP Candidates Tackle Gay Marriage

At the GOP primary debate Saturday night in New Hampshire, Republican presidential hopefuls took some hard-hitting questions on gay marriage and gay adoption, and presented a united front. Mitt Romney insisted he didn't oppose gay adoption, but society shouldn't encourage it. Jon Huntsman, the only outlier, endorsed civil unions. Newt Gingrich took a predictable turn into media bias against Christian beliefs, and Rick Perry got in a shot at the Obama administration's "war on religion."
