Adams defended both moves, pointing to how these men have allegedly evolved in their views. “This is a different America when marriage was first brought to the floor. If we say, ‘Everyone who did not get it then should be banished permanently,’ that’s the wrong message,” Adams told reporters last week. “The goal is to convert, allow people to evolve so that they can see the error of their ways. That’s who we are.”
