NEW YORK — David Letterman, playing host to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on “The Late Show” on CBS Wednesday night, had a few remarks directed at opponents of same-sex marriage.

“This ongoing, politically nuanced, religiously nuanced discussion of gay marriage, gay rights. It is absolute stupidity,” said Letterman.


Letterman called anti-gay marriage efforts “beyond embarrassing.”
