  1. Petro is another Republican who has had a change of heart due to a family member coming out. These are people incapable of empathy, immune to the fact that their bad acts hurt others, unless it hurts someone that they personally know.

    Such an absence of empathy is a serious character flaw.

    So he has changed “sides” now? I’m not sure what, if any, office he actually holds so I don’t know how much relevance this actually has.

      It smacks of sociopathic tendencies .

      Totally unable to comprehend the hurt they cause to others until it hurts them personally.

      Therefore unfit to hold any kind of office over others.

      1. Apparently, most people in positions of power are probably sociopaths it’s what makes them a success in the first place. Explains a lot really.

    2. Although it is good to see him publicly supporting his daughter and LGBT equality, he should have previously realised that we are all someones sons and daughters. Perhaps he could apologise to all the parents with gay and lesbian children for the angst he has caused them in the past.

  2. They grow up so fast these days, don’t they?

  3. I think these people are beginning to realise it’s politically expedient to back equal marriage now.

  4. Was I alone thinking this was about Silvio Berlusconi when I saw the pic?
