Skip to comments.Republican Rep. David Jolly (Fla.) announces support for gay marriage
Posted on 07/22/2014 4:45:39 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) announced his support for gay marriage Monday, saying that he believes it is "fully appropriate" for a state to recognize both same-sex marriages and "traditional" ones, even though he, as a Christian, believes in the the latter.
When asked by The Washington Post whether he supports gay marriage, in light of a Florida judge's decision last week to overturn the state's ban, Jolly said that his personal views on marriage are that it should be limited to one man and one woman. But, he added, states should not be defining the "sanctity" of marriage.

What a jerk.
Well, good luck in the general, asshat. You can win without conservatives. These political pukes start betraying early.
I see no need to bother voting anymore. These people stand for nothing that I believe.
He is neither a Republican nor a Christian.
How can a Christian ENCOURAGE someone to do something that WILL send them to hell?
This ‘person’ is a lying sack of excrement.
When will RINOs learn that they just cannot out-pander democrats?
What is irritating is that this is the guy who beat the awful Alex Sink in a special election....and now he turns RINO.
Another “False Flag” conservative.
Never vote for a traitor like this.
These are the people who should be the opposition to the Democrats. Instead, they are the enablers of the liberal agenda.
Doesn’t he now have another Republican primary to go through though? Can he be unseated?
I guess we should known better than to support a person with a last name like “Jolly”.
Anyway, he’s still one less vote for Amnesty, and that will kill this country MUCH FASTER.
It is a sign of the times, My FRiend. Prudent people will prepare for the future. As it is written many times in the New Testament: “He who hath an ear, let him hear”.
...it is becoming increasingly a political football as judges render Constitutionally held votes of the people in support of Marriage between one man and one woman, to be null and void, and even ruling against state Constitutions containing such. A tidal wave in 2014. Nullification apparently only works in one direction. One judge can nullify pretty much anything, but the voice of the people be damned.
his office also finds the invasion of illegals very funny
he’s a big govt progressive
Like a typical RINO, this jerk was saying all the right things to get elected and then he took his mask off once he won the election.
DO I HEAR TAP CLEATS?
“I guess we should known better than to support a person with a last name like Jolly.”
Yeah, like those Arizonians who voted in Jeff Flake. Major tipoff.
Not only a jerk, but he’s also apparently an idiot.
“...states should not be defining the “sanctity” of marriage.”
So what’s a state doing when it passes “gay marriage” laws? Isn’t that state determining what is and is not a marriage, i.e. what is a sanctified union so to speak? And, what about all the other possible combinations of loving adults that are not blessed by the state? Why arbitrary limit marriage to two people? Is that not the state picking and choosing which “marriages” to count?
What about a bisexual? Why can’t they marry both a man and a woman? Isn’t it bigoted to say a homosexual gets to marry who he’s attracted to, but a bisexual has to pick just one? How dare a state “sanctify” some loves but not others?
Once you open this “gay marriage” door, marriage basically becomes completely arbitrary. It is what we say it is—ignoring the obvious biological, natural union that has existed since the dawn of man. That union is unique in that no other grouping can unite two to become one.
I believe that they will get the race war that they[ Liberals] have tried to promote for the last 75 years between the whites and Blacks. Only it will be between the Hispanics and Blacks because the Blacks are being replaced by the Hispanics as the Democrat Party's number 1 supporters , hence less or no more freebies for the Blacks.
I wrote my opinion of him on his FB page. If Christians won’t stand up to the homosexual lobby, no one will.
America will pay the price.
His district includes all or part (check map on Jolly's web site) of Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo, Pinellas Park and St. Pete.
Very well stated.
With a name like “jolly” what do you expect?
Here I stand if I am the last American standing. I will never accept sodomite unions as legitimate. God made 1 man 1 woman 1 m arriage for life. You just as well ought to bless unions between a man and his goat!
It's also our civic duty to exercise our First Amendment rights to organize, petition, and speak out against homo-loving turncoats like this FloriDUH RINO. You're not powerless, madprof, it's the Left ('Rats and GOP-E alike) that wants you to think you are. YOU can do something about it. YOU can organize and mobilize your right-thinking compatriots. YOU can make a difference.
Even if it's a foregone conclusion that this Republic is going down, at least we can go down swinging. That way, when we get to Heaven and look those guys who died to preserve our right to vote in the eye, we won't have to look away. They'll have saved a spot at their table for us.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Third (or dependent on perspective.. second) party.
It’s past time.
Can you please post his facebook page? I did a quick search and there are 2 pages but both seem like they are abandoned pages with no recent news or updates. Not sure if he has anything to do with those pages either.
Until we create a third party, this will continue. No Republican wants to go against the perceived conventional wisdom that gay is now normal. The lobby is too strong and will destroy those who go against it.
Of course the reason for this is milqtoast republicans refusing to stand up for morality and values. This is comparable to being a Zell Miller democrat. The rat left destroyed that thinking and now the republican establishment is doing the same to us.
It’s our choice. One thing we cannot do is walk away. We have to fight at the ballot box and the only way to do that is to launch our own party.
Look at how well it worked out for Fox. People want the truth and we cannot be tied to a party to get our word out.
Campaign slogan: “Jolly and gay”
If someone “believes in” traditional marriage, but publicly and governmentally supports homosexual “marriage”, then let me tell you, they BELIEVE IN HOMOSEXUAL “MARRIAGE”.
Waaayy past time.
Well la dee frickin’ dah!
For he’s a Jolly gay fellow...
HGTV seems to be showing more and more of this in their home shows.
...ah yes...Jonathon and Richard are looking for the house of their dreams...with no more irony expressed than if Joe and Mary were doing so...
With a name like Jolly, why wouldn’t he be gay?
