As for the push by some libertarians to legalize same-sex marriage, Coulter also chalked that up to libertarians “sucking up to liberals” and said that marriage is attacked as an institution by the left to enhance the role of government in one’s life.

STOSSEL: Why can’t gays get married?
COULTER: Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.
STOSSEL: Why can’t they marry a member of their sex?
COULTER: This is another one where you’re just sucking up to liberals when there are big fights.
STOSSEL: No, we believe the individual should be left alone.
COULTER: But my reason — it has nothing to do with gays or libertarians or anything else. Marriage is the most important institution to civilize young people. I want to make divorce a lot more difficult. Liberals want to destroy — this is an important point libertarians, listen to this. Liberals want to destroy the family so that you will have one loyalty and that is to the government.
