When we become more concerned about what man thinks than what God thinks, then are we sunk.

Anyone still having doubts that we need a third party?

The GOP is a dead issue.

I really don’t give a smelly Obama one way or another about gay marriage.

However, on a list of the one billion most important items for our politicians to consider, this is at one billion and one.

Gays, new idea...boink all you want.

Just don’t tell us about it, OK?

Marginal republicans at best. John Huntsman turned around and accepted the “No Labels” nomination after dropping out as a GOP candidate.

Bunch of has-beens and no-names.

Interesting that they cite staffers from the Romney & McCain campaigns but neglect to mention that Romney & McCain themselves didn't pony up to join the list.

This is really not news ~ the party was getting overrun with homosexuals and their enablers in the top end and the Republican voters didn't show up in 2006. We did get rid of a lot of them, but not all of them.

Still, there's a problem. One of those problems is popping up in the midst of the hard-core of the Mormon elite ~ they imagine gay marriage will bring back the good old days of polygamy, or, maybe they're all gay themselves. Now that would be funny ~ LDS subverted and taken over by homosexual activists.

Lest we encounter more of this we probably ought to terminate all wealthy or powerful Mormon relations with Conservatism, and quite possibly with the Republican party!

That's what I call POLITICAL TOUGH LOVE ~ better 20 million Catholics voting Republican all over America than 10 million Mormons voting Republican in 5 states ~ one of which is California which is a total lost cause ~ we're wasting our campaign money even bothering with that place.

The country’s being led straight to hell and they’re deliberately shoving what’s left of the American economy down the toilet....

Our leaders are promoting, protecting, financing, and arming the enemy...

and all these so-called Republicans can figure to do with their spare time is to issue statements supporting even more legalized sodomy!????

Like, ..... what’s wrong with this picture!?

Hold on one minute.. No one is more homophobic (YES, I am frightened of them.. really) than I am, and proud to say it, but who is at all surprised at that list?? Every name on the list of signers has been a known phony before we saw their names..

The GOP has too many wolves in sheepskin for my liking, but changing them, where we can, is a hellofalot easier than starting a whole new movement.. if not for TIME, MONEY, and MOTIVATION!

If you want to understand my motivation, read this.. Scroll down to ADA and AIDS..

I think this issue guarantees a Third Party.

Politically, it's impossible to believe that centrist and center-left Republicans do not understand this.

Millions of traditional Conservatives are going to walk away.

You act as if this will exist in isolation from everyone else. How naive you are, if not more than a little stupid.

Two possibilities:

Either they fell prey to the Beltway, or in light of demographics and public opinion, have just decided to move on to what the pea-brain would view as weightier arguments.

Who knows?

This is a manufactured news story.

WMAL 105.9 in Washington D.C., in between Rush Limbaugh segments, carried a “news” story declaring [from which wire service??] that “conservatives are supporting a gay marriage initiative.”

The talking head read “conservatives.” Later she read “Republicans.”

David Stockman and any Senator from Maine are hardly Republican leaders.

This is a manufactured story.

Nope. All those votes for gay supporting Mitt didn’t send any message to the GOP at all. Nope. Not a one.

Meg Whitman: Never elected to any office.
Jon Huntsman: Now works for President Obama.
Christine Todd Whitman: Always used her position as a Republican governor to attack conservatives, always supported radically left social positions.
Carlos Guttierez: left-wing crazy outflanked Bill Clinton’s justice department folks to the left.
Ileana Ros_lehtinen: votes far more often with Democrats than Republicans.

None of these people changed their position; the only thing that’s happened in the last ten years to their positions is that they’ve gotten them removed from any power in the GOP.

Part of the blame can go to those (some even here on FR) who claim to be conservative, yet at the same time say social issues are not really that important. Anyone who thinks gay marriage is no big deal is helping to destroy America as much as any liberal.

Steve Schmidt, who worked on the 2004 Bush re-election effort and as chief strategist on McCain’s 2008 presidential bid, has been a “powerful supporter” of same-sex marriage,

Yeah, that's a powerful name in GOP circles all right. Not. The whole list is also rans and has beens.

However, I will change my registration if the GOP goes over to the dark side. I am out of patience with the PC carp on this issue.

To be fair to Republicans (no one could be more unhappy about the state of this party than I am), these people are not even RINOS. They are liberals pure and simple. The title of this article is just another liberal lie. The people named have not switched; they always supported gay marriage. And as far as the Republican Party is concerned, these people are nobodies.

TWO elected Republicans and a bunch of has-beens/never-weres.

Yeah, this is ground breaking, NBC.

Say, did NBC ever ask Obama the Assclown any serious questions about Benghazi, high gas prices, people still unrecovered from Sandy, higher unemployment?

No?

But the organization has time to focus on a few leftwing social issues goofs in the GOP.

Oh, wait, they are celebrating SODOMY? Oh, well, now I understand. If there is ANY organization excited about celebrating sodomy, it would be NBC news.

NBC news...didn’t they air an edited 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman appear racist?

When a Republican Governor who campaigned as being more pro-homosexual than Ted Kennedy, and who supported and campaigned on homosexualizing the military and Boy Scouts for at least the last 20 years, and who as Governor gave America ‘gay marriage’, is made the GOP Presidential candidate for 2012,then how is this “inconceivable”?

Then why didn’t the Catholics vote for McCain? The majority of Catholics have been voting Democrat since JFK. Stop reading Mormon hate sites. I know active members that did no vote for Romney in the primary. I could say that Catholics want the days of the Inquisition. Get a grip.
