Country Singer Toby Keith on Gay Marriage and DADT

He's a white trash-country boy, so he opposes gay marriage and also the service of homosexuals in the military. Oh, wait.... "That whole gay issue thing, that's never bothered me," (Toby Keith) told CMT Insider correspondent Allison DeMarcus. "I've never seen what that affects and why anybody should care -- and they never do affect me." He continued, "First of all, we're going to stop somebody from getting a marriage license because they're gay? You won't stop them from living together, so what have you accomplished? ... Wasting a lot of money here and a lot of time that could be spent working on this deficit that we're under ... I never saw the reasoning behind getting in people's personal lives." Keith went on to say, "But the military is a tough thing. I don't worry as much about the heterosexual people fighting as I do ... about the gays. ... In the military or any class in life, you have people who have problems with it, and I'm wondering how that's going to be compatible on the battlefield. That's the only question I have, other than that I don't care. "It's just such a big issue that people make such a big stink about -- 'don't ask, don't tell.' ... And that sounds like our government: 'We'll fix it by saying, "Don't ask, don't tell." Everybody agree, raise your hands. All right, let's go get a snack,'" Keith added with a laugh. "You know, I don't know enough about what they proposed or what they've put in place here. ... Somebody's sexual preference is like, 'Who cares?'"
