Romney and Gay Marriage

Romney and family values. Social conservatives — of whom I am one — are sometimes highly critical of Mitt Romney because, some believe, he is not strong enough on the issue of same-sex marriage. Once again, as with health care, those who levy this charge are ignorant of the facts.

Mitt has made it very clear that what he did in Massachusetts was to follow the law, as interpreted and required by the Massachusetts Supreme Court. And wherever he has had an opportunity, he has spoken in favor of or sought change that would preserve the sanctity of traditional marriage.

If, however, one has any doubts about where Mitt Romney stands on the family, they need go no further than “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” issued by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints more than 15 years ago. Many of these same social conservatives, particularly Christian fundamentalists, criticize Romney for his “Mormon” faith. What they do not understand, however, is that Romney’s faith informs his beliefs about the family. And anyone who doubts Mitt’s commitment to the traditional family really needs to read that proclamation.

  2. Hi B4genesis,
    This might be off topic, however, The minute he gets his Mormon butt in there, he’ll legalize polygamy. It’s all a deep plot by the Mormon church.

    Pretty much a thousand times more probable than claims that gay marriage is so people can marry dogs.
    BTW great blogpost

    • I can assure you that no such plot exists. And I can also assure you that Mormon men find one wife quite enough!
