    If only the Cardinal O’Briens and Archbishop Sentamus of this world could be as tolerant of people with differing opinions on marriage, as Arnie is!

  2. “I against the emancipation of slaves, but if some other people want to go ahead and free their slaves, it’s not up to me to say anything about it.”

    funny, why does it sound so silly in THAT context?

    Arnie isn’t “tolerant”. He’s “tolerating”.

    If we can’t get married Arnold you can’t get divorce!!!!

  4. It sounds slightly confused – My interpretation may be wrong but it appears that he is suggesting that gay couples should be allowed the same type of ceremony as straight people but not call it “marriage”.

  5. I like how hes changed over last few years.

    He has his view but realises just because he believes something about his life doesent give him the right to force it on others lives.

    I like that.

    I wish he personally would believe its right for us to marry but i say thanks for just being live and let live.

    No surprise there from an Austrian catholic, one of the most conservative countries in Europe.

  7. Boy, oh Boy! Talk about sitting on the fence! This Arnie has got sitting on the fence down to the finest of arts!


    Have guts and gumption, man, and say, unashamedly that you are FOR Marriage Equality.

    1. but he’s not.. he just wants to make sure that you will still pay your $12 to see his movies, now that he’s out of that “Governator” job.

  8. Oh, isn’t that cute – he’s pretending he still has a political career in today’s Republican Party. Someone should tell him it’s okay for him to support equal marriage now – the Republican Party has moved so far to the right and purged all its moderates from viable candidacy, such that he stands to lose more just being a social moderate than whether he supports equal marriage or not.

  9. While obviously I’d prefer it if he personally believed in equal marriage, I think its good that he can separate his personal convictions from what he should and should not enforce on people from his position of Governor. I’ve met a couple of Christian libertarians whom, whilst personally believing homosexuality to be sinful, would not wish to see their personal beliefs affect gay people’s rights.

    Again, obviously I’d prefer these people didn’t believe these things, but at the end of the day if they’re not trying to enforce them on anybody, we can just ignore these bigots and go and talk to somebody more worthwhile

  10. Who cares.

    He’s a hasbeen actor and a hasbeen politician.

    The fact that he vetoed same sex marriage on 2 occasions while governor is evidence of the type of person Arnold Schwarzenenegger is.
