Skip to comments.Conservatives Support for Marriage Equality Growing [retread zig zag zot!]
Posted on 03/24/2013 12:47:34 PM PDT by zigzagzoom
Today Meghan McCain and Margaret Hoover paired up to pen an op-ed for USA Today, calling on conservatives to support marriage equality.
In the article, McCain and Hoover outline the inevitable demise of anti-LGBT organizations and leadership, as country continues to shift support toward marriage equality.
Marriage is marriage, whether a person is straight or gay.Indeed marriage equality is largely becoming a bipartisan momentum across the country.
Marriage also promotes outcomes that we as conservatives should support: stable homes, with committed couples who take care of themselves without government intrusion. We know the benefits to society from healthy marriages, and we celebrate them. Our fellow Republicans should be strengthening this great institution--not stifling it with roadblocks.
A record number of Americans--58 percent--support marriage equality. Just last week Ohio Republican Rob Portman reversed his own position to now support marriage equality legislation. And over 100 Republicans filed an amicus brief calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Californias Proposition 8....

Where can I and my family go hide? I don’t want to live in an overwhelmingly immoral place any more.
Meghan McCain and Margaret Hoover are not conservatives.
zigzagzoom your homo self back to DU.
All I keep reading is that the tide of public opinion has moved in favor of “gay marriage”. But if that is true, then why has it failed in nearly every referendum put to the voters in over thirty states? Why is it that the states that allow it only did so because it was imposed upon them by judicial fiat or by a close legislative vote?
Why is it that the only polls that matter — those made in ballots cast by the voting public — are ignored in these stories?
The media in this country is absolutely evil.
Two posts on accepting sodomy as normal from an account started 12 12 2012... HomoTroll?
Based on the last election, the majority support repealing the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Should the GOP support that too?
I want gays to pledge they will not marry until the law supports my right, as a man, to bear children.
If fruitcakes are allowed to marry, its the end of America as we know it..I dont know when our country officially went to hell but its happening quicker than I ever imagined
A somewhat more reasoned look at this issue and the sox-called “100 Republicans” who filed an amicus brief can be found here:
Has there ever been another case where the meaning of a word was changed to make a group of people feel better about themselves? The word ‘marriage’ has meant the ‘union of a man and a woman’ for centuries. There is no good reason for this. And I suspect gays/lesbians will not feel better about themselves anyway.
Spiritual sense has all gone jabberwocky here. And it was invited, it didn’t force itself on America.
zigzagzoom retread zig zag zot!
Just like teh polls showing taht “a majority” support banning guns, right?
By the way, what do you think of this stuff?
I was about to ask about that.
Drats, I’m too slow today.
Zotted by The Man himself!
Words have broadened, but this is a quantum leap and it is being pushed by a relatively few human activists. Individual members speaking each for himself, the homosexual set is as little in favor of “gay marriage” as they have ever been. But they’ve now been sold on the notion that politicking for it will somehow make homosexual life nicer for them.
That picture should be nuked.
It is not marriage equity.
When you read the questions asked, it’s more like support for civil unions or changes to tax laws and regs, items like that.
It is the press which says “marriage equity”.
And please, do try to enjoy every single day of your self-inflicted self-hatred.
You will never defeat bok choy.
We need to imitate Jesus with the carrying of the Cross. Our path will certainly not be as drastic as His: abandoned by all, apparent silence or absence from God, whipped, mocked, nailed to the cross, and unjustly executed. But we will have days in which pain and discouragement will accumulate.
We cannot become discouraged during the pain, the injustice, the solitude, incomprehension, trials and the apparent triumph of evil against good, from lies against the truth, from death against life. Christ triumphed once and forever and those of us that trust in Him will continue to follow His path and participate in His victory forever. We need to center our lives, our trust and our actions in Him. He will not deceive us. We WILL live in truth and love with Him.
I couldn’t care less what polls say. A lot of the people polled never vote, watch the Colbert Report for news, and don’t know which country we declared independence from.
The Founders warned of democratic tyranny. Majorities are not inherently right on anything, and have gotten things horribly wrong in the past.
I refuse to vote for a candidate that voices support for same-sex marriages. Portman is a schmuck, a turncoat, a selfish RINO snake.
I saw one of these so-called conservatives on Fox News Sunday today. Who the hell are these losers? They’re former Bush-staffers. They’re Colin Powell-ites.
Gay marriage goes against everything conservatism stands for. Strong families? Are you kidding me? Does NOBODY read the health and habit statistics for homosexuals. Oh, no, that’s right. There was a coup inside the psychiatric circle to disregard science for this special interest group.
It’s not marriage equality. Marriage equality would recognize every single definition of marriage possible. This is simply carving out an exception for a coalition of deviant lobbyists.
Rove, these Bush retreads, Portman. They’re NOT conservatives. They NEVER have been. And any future presidential candidate should avoid them and their left wing politics like the plague.
Two more versions of meghan McPain exist.
One where she’s holding up a giant chocolate bar, another a magnum pack of trojans.
She complained about how mean people were after all three appeared.
Hoover and McCain are RINOs belatedly jumping on the gay marriage bandwagon and thus, showing their obvious lack of moral conviction or political conservatism.
Love the cartoon...dead on.
Sorry, only a man and a woman can consummate marriage.
Looks like ziggyzaggy got the zot
Russia. They just banned homosexual propaganda, and will fine to the point of collapse, groups that promote it. With the head cut off the snake, the Russian homosexual lobby is dead in the water.
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
Two Plus Two is Five
Sanctioned Sodomy is Marriage Equality
supporting Gay marriage gets politicians sympathetic TV coverage. TV is a sort of extortion racket; either support whatever leftist notion we TV people want or we’ll do a slime campaign against you.
TV can just about convince people of anything. Which is very dangerous.
I think TV is the real ruler of this country. Maybe the world.
Thank you very much for that reply to married21; I needed it also. Will print it and tape up for frequent reference. Some of us have almost given in to despair at times.
Sure have been a raft of “surrender Dorothy” stories the last few days. Sorry, guys, that was Oz and this is the real world.
“Marriage is marriage, whether a person is straight or gay.”
I agree, I just don’t see how you can redefining marriage to include unions between members of the same sex. You might then as well include unions among different species. Or even people and objects. They are all just as incapable of producing families together.
Nether is her father John.
Any conservative, any Christian, that supports homosexual marriage is not.........
This is indeed the underlining key here, and we should commit ourselves to the moral printable that Sodomy is nether normal nor an acceptable practice.
This is most critical for members of our own family, as accepting of this decease is the downfall of individuals, families, and civilization.
Never give your blessing or acknowledgement to anyone’s profession to union in Sodom.
Always remind them that this is a deases that is self-destructive not only to them but the family and civilization that support it. Tell them that his is why you can never give any blessing or support to such a sinful relationship and only continue to give condemnation.
Except they've been dead accurate lately. Pre-vote polls were a Bullseye on the immoral vote in my state of Washington last November, even as we bitter clingers east of the Cascades rejected it.
