To my knowledge, throughout this campaign Romney has stated again and again (including at the debates) that he supports a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as he spoke of it at Liberty U.
I do not see him giving any opposing message on it himself.
Others in the GOP perhaps have, but on this issue I have yet to see it from Romney to date. Please point me to an opposing statement by him as regards the Marriage Amendment. All I have heard is his support of that amendment, which is exaclty in line with what he stated at the speech.
He reaffirmed this last week in a statement to Denver station KDVR-TV,
“Well, when these issues were raised in my state of Massachusetts, I indicated my view, which is I do not favor marriage between people of the same gender, and I do not favor civil unions if they are identical to marriage other than by name.”
He went on to reaffirm his supports of a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman according to the National Organization for Marriage pledge he signed.
He also pledged to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court, in contrast to the Obama administration, which does not defend DOMA as it thinks the 1996 law banning is unconstitutional.
You should also note, that after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that gays had the right to marry in MA in 2003, initially Romney said he would follow the ruling, but seek a constitutional amendment to overturn it.
Ultimately, he used a variety of tactics to try to block the ruling, but he was unsuccessful through the remainder of his term in office. This was because the overwhelming majority of legislators and Judges in Mass, for a long period of time, have been Democrats and very left leaning.
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
THE MAN WHO DESPISES AMERICA
Romney said recently that he believes that the issue of gay marriage should be left up to the states, thus pivoting away from federalizing the issue. This is common knowledge.
BTW, Romney also said first that gays have the “right” to adopt children, only to later pivot from this and say that he was merely affirming that this is an issue that states now allow. Romney today was hammered on this on MSNBC. Several newspapers have also taken him to task on this. Dems intend to make hay of Romney’s pivots (flip-flops), and Romney has only himself to blame.
