Stephen Baldwin Talks Gay Marriage With Rosie O'Donnell (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Actor Stephen Baldwin took to "The Rosie Show" in an effort to clarify his stance on same-sex marriage.

Baldwin, who is known for his evangelical Christian faith, spoke out earlier this month in defense of "Growing Pains" star Kirk Cameron, whose controversial remarks on homosexuality and same-sex marriage ignited a media firestorm.

"It's not what you say, it's how you say it,” Baldwin explained to host Rosie O'Donnell while noting that she was one of the gay people in his life that he “loved and admired." He then added, "I have never said the gay community doesn't have any rights."

When O'Donnell pressed Baldwin on whether or not lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) people should have the right to marry, the actor replied, "Yes -- meaning, in their world."

Interrupted O'Donnell, "Well, not in your church. Just legally in a union.”

“Absolutely,” Baldwin noted.
