Posted on 04/08/2014 5:54:52 AM PDT by GIdget2004
Former Sen. Alan Simpson, a Republican, is making the case for a live and let live approach to same-sex marriage in a new television ad buy targeting Western states, just as a federal appeals court in Denver prepares to take up the issue later this week.
Whether youre gay or lesbian or straight, if you love someone and you want to marry them, marry them, Simpson, of Wyoming, says in the spot.
The six-figure buy, sponsored by the pro-gay marriage group Freedom to Marry, is slated to start airing on Tuesday on national cable channels, as well as locally in Wyoming, Oklahoma and Colorado.
Those states are within the geographic jurisdiction of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is weighing a gay marriage case concerning Utah on Thursday, and is set to take up another one involving Oklahoma later this month the cases could ultimately reach the Supreme Court.
Im a Republican, Simpson says. The partys basic core is, government out of your life and the right to be left alone.

Or are they one and the same?
Michelle Malkin, here I come!
They're far beyond that and well into 'kiss our *ss or we'll throw you and your family out into the street, breeder' territory now.
From Wikipedia bio: “In 2001, Simpson became Honorary Chairman of the Republican Unity Coalition (RUC), a gay/straight alliance within the Republican Party.”
In other words, he’s been a gay activist for many years. Probably did his share of foot tapping in men’s restrooms during his political career.
“if you love someone and you want to marry them, marry them”
Mommy? Puppy? Cheesecake? Spaghetti Westerns? Love them all dearly.
Freedom to Marry? I didn’t know marriage was illegal. Should I let my youngest son marry his wagon? States got different ages for marriage, so if a 15 year old married an 18 year old is that pedophilia? Some states can let you marry at 15.
Then stop the government from trying to define marriage. Give to Caesar that which is Caesar's and give to God that which is God's.
Great point! Has Simpson hear of Mozilla?
“live and let live approach to same-sex marriage”
You mean like the tolerance shown to Brendan Eich?
Total fraud. Not a Republican.
I like cheesecake..
Dementia's a bitch a'int it?
From the best I can tell, Alan Simpson is a 'John McCain' Republican. That, or the only time the media ever pays attention to him is when he doesn't tow the party line. Hell, what IS the 'party line' anymore? If someone asked me what a "Republican" is, I honestly wouldn't know what to tell them or have a good answer.
The west has always been very libertarian—too libertarian in my opinion.
And not force you to accept things that are disgusting, perverse and against all of your moral standards as a Christian.
Sadly, he's right....This is the Republican Party today. GOP stands for "Gay Old Party."
If this isn’t the government’s business, why is the pro-sodomy Simpson insisting the government force sodomy down our throats?
I always thought he was a little squirrely.
“If this isnt the governments business”
Exactly. Government should just stay out. Perverts will still be perverts whether gay marriage is legal or not. The debate over this issue is a waste of time.
