WATCH: Dalai Lama Says 'O.K.' to Same-Sex Marriages

Mar 07, 2014

The Dalai Lama took his first public stance on gay marriage Thursday, calling it "O.K." during an online interview with Larry King.

"If two people — a couple — really feel that way is more practical, more sort of satisfaction, both sides fully agree, then O.K.," he said, adding that he unreservedly opposed attacks on homosexuals. "Bully, abuse — that's totally wrong."
