House Majority Leader Eric Cantor booed for opposing marriage equality

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was booed during a speech at the Gerold Ford School of Public Policy, at the University of Michigan for opposing marriage equality. Asked how he reconciled his advocacy for states rights with support for the 1996 DOMA – which prohibits the feds from recognizing marriages performed in states that allow same-sex unions – Cantor replied, “I just believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman.” Some audience members booed the Virginia Republican and shouted, “what about liberty?” and “none of your business!”
