Associated Press ^ | Apr 23, 2014 1:51 AM EDT | Michelle Rindels

Some Republicans are pushing for their party to drop its opposition to same-sex marriage as public opinion on the issue shifts rapidly and the party tries to woo younger voters more supportive of gay unions. […]

But social conservatives warn that Republicans could lose loyal voters by softening their stance. A majority of Republicans still oppose gay marriage. …

The GOP would dry up as a going concern if it surrenders to the left

Which is why the media publishes these things all the time

Giving even a fraction of an inch to the sodomites opens the door to abortion on demand and legalizing pedophilia. The fascists pushing the evil homosexual agenda are the same crowd of leftists that advocates the creation of baby killing factories.

There are three deal breakers for me: abortion, homosexuality, and amnesty. I will not vote for someone who is pro-abort, pro-sodomite, or pro-amnesty. If I wanted any of those things, I might as well vote for a Democrat. Truth be told, the Republican Party is almost indistinguishable from the Democrats anyway. We saw how fiscally conservative they were during the Bush administration—not at all. We also saw how much they accomplished on the social issues—not much. If my choice is limited to commie pinkos and commie pinko wannabes, I opt out. A pox on both parties!

With the nation going the way of Sodom, same sex marriage is now seen as a loser issue by pragmatic Rovian Republicans with no principles. I see Paul Ryan vs Ted Cruz as the watershed moment, of Ryan defeats Cruz, it means that the Regain coalition is officially dead, replaced by a more libertarian vision of conservatism that excludes Christian conservatives and moral issues.

Seventeen states allow gay marriage and 59 percent of Americans supported it in a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll.”

Those numbers are cooked.

No way, no how do 59 percent of the people approve of gay marriage.

Fine by met. Let’s get it over with. The ballot box is a fraud at this point anyway.

At what point did paper ballots become to difficult for voters to fill out?
Major cities are all going electronic. Trust the Government? Like hell!

Expect some GERIATRICS to come out and lecture us. Maybe starting with Bob Dole.

Note how this NEVER seems to happen with the Democrats...but it probably does, but since they own the media, it’s chalked up as “old age” and never reported.

The Sodomites destroy everything they infect.
Republican Party, Girl Scouts, Episcopal Church, US military.
Sure, theft and slander etc., are also sins, but they do not currupt a whole society by themselves.

The arrogance of the Republican elites was epitomized by that guy Krick from Marin County who blithely declared that “no one knows where they stand on an issue until we tell them.” If that kind of thinking is representative of most Pubbie so-called movers and shakers, then I’m out of the party. Nobody tells me how to vote on a particular issue.

Same pollster who says 10% of Americans are homosexual.

in case someone is confused...

it's all, perfectly natural, just as long as there is 'love' and 'caring', all should be embraced. literally

I hope they fail, to paraphrase a great thinker.

Stop calling it GAY and tell it like it is.

Sodomy - It’s A Real Pain In The Butt

Civil unions are fine, IMO. There are all sorts of civil unions that already exist. A civil union for homosexual couples would simply be one additional sort of union.

But marriage is another thing, entirely, with special privileges granted by society in the hopes that those special privileges will foster healthy families with children.

What do you think God’s opinion is on civil unions?

Good, after Romney and McCain I am not optimistic, but Ted Cruz is what this country needs.

Shouldn’t even be a competition. Rand is putting himself out there as the überliberal.
