During Wednesday night’s Democrat presidential debate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) boasted that she has forsaken the values instilled in her by her parents.

Gabbard said that, in her youth, she embraced the values she learned growing up in “a socially conservative home” – but, today, she renounces them, especially when it comes to support of traditional marriage:

“Let me say there is no one in our government, at any level, who has the right to tell any American who they should be allowed to love or who they should be allowed to marry. My record in Congress for over six years shows my commitment to fighting for LGBTQ equality. I serve on the Equality Caucus and recently voted for passage of the Equality Act.

“Maybe, many people in this country can relate to the fact I grew up in a socially conservative home. I held views when I was very young that I no longer hold today.

“I served with LGBTQ service members. Both in training and deployed downrange. I know that they would give their life for me and I would give my life for them. It is this commitment that I'll carry through as president of the United States, recognizing that there are still people who are facing discrimination in the workplace. Still, people who are unable to find a home for their families. It is this kind of discrimination that we need to address.”
