    Toby Keith weighs in on gay marriage, military
    AP – Fri, Sep 30, 2011



    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Toby Keith says gay marriage doesn't bother him and trying to stop it wastes time and money.

    The country superstar tells "CMT Insider" airing Saturday on CMT that he doesn't see the reason behind getting into people's personal lives. He says refusing a marriage license to people because they are gay won't stop them from living together, so it accomplishes nothing.

    Keith also weighed in on the military's now-repealed "don't ask, don't tell" policy that banned gays serving openly in uniform. He says that anyone with the training and passion should have the right to defend the country, adding: "Somebody's sexual preference is, like, who cares?"

    The "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" singer has taken part in nine USO tours to entertain U.S. troops overseas.

    My sentiments exactly.

    Actually surprising coming from Toby. Maybe hanging with Willie has had an effect. The lunatic fringe fans won't be happy. But good for him.

    Toby says a lot of things Southern folks think but don't have the intestinal fortitude to say it themselves; I don't think this will hurt his standing with his fans at all.

    Smart man, whether or not he's being truthful.
