Posted on 04/30/2012 1:30:07 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
As Mitt Romney prepares for his second presidential campaign and gay marriage threatens to undermine Americas Judeo-Christian culture, theres a raging debate about the role he played in instituting gay marriage in Massachusetts during his gubernatorial term. This is important because Governor Romney has positioned himself as a champion of traditional values and claims to have been an opponent of homosexual marriage his entire career.
When the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of homosexual marriage, the Goodridge case Romney unilaterally ordered his state agencies to implement homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. The court did not order him to do this nor had the legislature codified this ruling. Combined with a promise by President Obama to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act, this action by Romney has led significantly contributed to the spread of homosexual marriage nationwide.
Make no mistake; Romneys action was utterly illegal. In four different parts of the Massachusetts Constitution, it is clearly stated that only the legislature can change laws and one section specifically states that the marriage statutes are determined by the legislature, not by the courts. Even the Supreme Court itself stated that it could not order the legislature to act. All Romney had to do was to declare the court had no authority to enforce its unconstitutional opinion and ignore its decision.
But instead of doing that, Romney abruptly claimed the court opinion was now the law of the land and ordered his Town Clerks and Justices of the Peace to marry homosexuals even though the legislature never acted to codify the ruling. Indeed, according to a Fox News/AP story, the attorney for the homosexual plaintiffs in Goodridge, held the view that the legislature would have to codify the Goodridge ruling:

At least until the next shake of that Etch-A-Sketch.
To a realist, that's not an option.
Thank you, yes it is.
why go to the polls at all, just stay home.
Drill here, drill now. This election is all but lost to the liberals such as Obammy, Mittens, those who support either - and so it is up to the grown ups to form a more perfect union of Conservatism. Will Conservatives win this election? Not the top spot, no, but we will be there for 2016 while the GOP joins the Whigs in the dustbin of history.
And yes, America will be damaged by whichever of the two commies, Obammy or Mittens you support - and if you support one, you politically support the other - but America will survive this tragedy of a false dichotomy and in another four years Conservatives will have a new Conservative party to rally around. One free of mushy, fudgepacking RINOs like Rove and Bloomberg, and Graham and, well, especially Mittens.
Yes! Realists did wonderful things in our world's history...
You have it real easy, all you have to do is go to the poles and vote for Obama. I actually have to kind of look the other way and vote for Romney. Man you are so lucky and I’m sure you’re the envy of all the DU folks!!
Yes, keep telling yourself that. Stay in your little bubble. It’s safe in there - helps you to be safe from all the scary stuff that we adults have to deal with.
This so-called expose is written by “Rino Hunter”!? Holy Chicago, is that you, axelrod? Yup, using all community agitating pressure points to alinskyite your boy’s “enemies”.
*sticks fingers in ears* Romney is our nominee!!! I can’t hear you!!! You’re just supporting Obama!!! I can’t hear you!!! Don’t confuse me with facts!!! I can’t hear you!!!
You’ve gotten it totally backward. Chamberlain was not a realist, he was a “head in the sand” kook. The realist was Churchill who offered nothing but “Blood, toil, tears and sweat”. We have to get our heads out of the sand in order to beat Obama. No amount of idealistic dreaming will prevent the election of anyone but Obama or Romney.
Me too, voted for and gave the Newtster too many wasted dollars.
The SoConPubbie posts this screed two or three times a day, uses the same first post, same chart and same arguments.
Mittens maybe a flipper, a spineless, wimp with no code that a conservative would recognize, but he isn't a communist, mooselimb, rabid anti-gun nut, with chicago thug connections and he doesn't want to destroy the USA.
There are a load of FReepers that hate mittens, and while he is far from my ideal, given the choices, the country can't survive another 4 years of this communism.
Romney’s record is shouting at everyone. Do yo not see friend?
Romney could of but didn’t make an exception because of
the teachings of the faith. Catholic adoption agencies
in Massachusetts had to shut down because of the homosexual
agenda, Romney’s support of sodomites could adopt children!!
This is totally against God.
By voting for Obama's hand-picked clone, Romney? You're the one with your head in the sand.
Unless a RINO is ready to hold the basin while an abortionist fills it with broken parts of babies’ bodies, and then tell their own daughter to mount the stirrups, they’re not ready for Romney.
We don't hate Mittens, we just know what he is. Unlike the MittWits with their fingers in their ears...
MittWits have already compromised God, in order to fulfill their illusion of getting rid of Obama.
And so your winning strategy is.....?
I’ll keep asking, it comes down to ~
How can God bless a nation, guide it’s leader with His GRACE, if that man is a Muslim or belongs to some crazy
sect, one that actually reject Our Lord is God?!!!~@
Fits both, Jesus mercy. Romney = Obama.
Pray for a miracle.
