Skip to comments.Veteran Republican senator: Marriage equality ‘is the new conservative position’
Posted on 03/27/2013 10:42:22 AM PDT by redreno
Former Sen. Larry Pressler (R-SD), a Vietnam veteran who served in Congress for more than two decades, said Tuesday on Current TV that the movement for marriage equality is much like the movement for racial equality, and confidently declared that the Republican Party is now in the process of making the right to marry the new conservative position.
The main thing that caused me to change my mind was my work with veterans groups, he told Viewpoint host John Fugelsang, explaining that hes worked with a gay couple who want to marry and have a family.
Its something like in World War II, we had the African-American veterans who fought, but when they got home they couldnt vote, Pressler added. So now-a-days we have gays in the military we had gays in the military before, but now we have openly gay people in the military when they come out we tell them they are not entitled to this civil right.

Pressler a Republican? Last I checked, he endorsed BHO for president.
Gay Mafia Money Busy Republicans as easy at it buys Democrats.
Larry Pressler, whose loss to Tim Johnson in 1996 left us one vote short on a balanced budget amendment. We really don’t need his opinion.
At this rate, every Republican in DC will be in favor of Gay Marriage by the end of June.
So they are going to ensure every man has a cute wife?
He is an idiot. He is a RINO. He is not a Republican.
Meaningless politico rhetoric. Republicans have no conservative credentials anymore.
Thank God this sick bastard is gone from the senate.
Like hell, you degenerate scumbag.
I hate to break this sad news to him, but nature discriminates too. Even if they pretend to marry, they will only be able to pretend to have a family.
But he’s a Vietnam vet who nursed sick puppies back to health on his lollypop ranch for the poor before serving in the senate.
I’d like to say I’ve left the Republican party. The truth is, the party has left me.
Another fabulous “republican” showing his fabulous reasoning. Certainly the coming divide in the Republican party over gay marriage will be fabulous for democrats. The idiocy of it all is mind boggling, people are going batsh*t nuts every day before our eyes. It is quite a sight to behold.
Gays can`t reproduce with gays.
Ergo, there is no such thing as marriage equality cos the evidence supports Male and Female marriages as more powerful and therefore superior to gays getting together.
Ergo if the former is superior, then the latter must be inferior by essence and comparison -
Conclusion: Superior and Inferior by definition cannot be equal.
Ergo "Gay marriage" is an oxymoron. =thus the term "gay marriage" is a falsehhood, a lie.
It’s time for people to catch on to the fact that RINO=Republican=RINO.
Time for a new party—and yes, I know how hard that is.
Pressler said he voted for Ubama in 2008 and endorsed him again in 2012.
Pressler is a scumbag with no clue about “conservatism”.
This is an effort to avoid the Federal Marriage Amendment.
