CNN caught up with 1970s TV star Jimmie Walker, who feels very strongly about same-sex marriage.
Walker, mostly remembered for the catchprase "Dynomite!" on the sitcom Good Times, is promoting a memoir. In his CNN interview, he says he's morally opposed to marriage equality.
"There's just certain traditions that need to be upheld. I'll give you the other side of it -- no, it doesn't affect me, no, it doesn't change my life. There's just traditions that need to be dealt with. I'm a believer that gay marriage should be passed because the battle is not worth the war. The gay lobby is very loud. I'm totally against it.
"In 100 years from now, people are going to go, 'Who was against gay marriage?' And I'll be one of those idiots and say, 'That's me.' I'm just against it on moral grounds, that's it. I'm as much a heathen as anybody. I just don't believe on moral grounds it should be done. I don't like it, I don't accept it."
Walker also shares his feelings on Jay Leno, with whom he has a beef , and Dave Letterman, bringing up the television host's past affair with an intern. Read the interview here.
