When someone has to say “I have a lot of gay friends” it is an excuse for something worse. Poor gay friends.
Michael Steele is a total fool. He is demonstrating that he has the reasoning capacity of a boiled egg! Republican’s are seething because they want to kick his arse out but are afraid of giving the Dems a laugh fest. The Republican spokespersons are utter morons it’s wonderful to watch them as they prove that they cannot chew gum and fart at the same time.
isn’t he handsome…
What are Condi and this guy, the token Blacks for the Republicans to look almost “with it!!!!!”. Gays are not an abomination, people who are Republicans are!!!!!
What are Condi and this guy the token blacks for the Republicans to look almost cool and socially inclusive? Gays are not an abomination, only Republicans and their campaigns of hatred and discrimination!!!!!
I see the AFA are already taking a vote on whether he should go…
His view is completely homophobic and disrespectful to those like us, who are legally civilly married, but face discrimination as US Citizens, and a legally married family!
F–k your faith tradition Mr Steele. I don’t share that faith tradition so how DARE you try to impose your religious views on me or my relationship.
This is actually him saying he ISN’T going to cry foul over individual affairs when it comes to marriage and abortion. Yeah, so his PR people have had a word with him – still not too bad a sentiment for a Republican. Frankly, I’ve heard a lot worse from the Tory peers in Lords.
I dont ‘aspire’ to be like straight people, heck no!
Of course, his anti same-sex marriage crap is based on his religious beliefs, most are. All that nonsense about procreation being the primary purpose for marriage…utter bull shit. If that’s the case, then he and the rest of his neocons better start banning straight couples from marrying who don’t want to procreate or can’t for whatever reason. Marriage was invented by men not by some divine entity that nobody can prove the existence thereof and it was nothing to do with love (the real primary reason for marrying in current times), first and foremost. Children are secondary and not a prerequisite of civil marriage either. Ancient judaism in the old testament took the fairytale of Adam & Eve and construed that since a bone was taken from Adam’s rib cage and a woman created out of it that it signified a union that has been broadly corrupted over the millenia to imply marriage. It does NOT. This is where all this nonnsense is coming from. Its the same nonsense that the C of E and RC cults use to justify a ban on same-sex marriage, nothing more.
I don’t really care if one is anti-gay marriage because of religious beliefs. This ISN’T a religious issue. It’s a human rights issue. Keep religion out of politics.
