Republican Rep. David Jolly (Fla.) announces support for gay marriage
Washington Post ^ | 7/21/14 | Sean Sullivan

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.

Just like Democrats talked about abortion in the 70s and 80s.... "I don't support it, but who am I to say?"

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.

What is irritating is that this is the guy who beat the awful Alex Sink in a special election....and now he turns RINO.

It's a real temptation. Yet I urge you to resist it. Far too many Americans have died so that you and I can study the candidates and vote FOR one. Not a guilt trip but a huge responsibility, while it lasts.

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’s a little scary to watch so few destroying a nation in real-time. After having been elected to “represent”.

HGTV seems to be showing more and more of this in their home “shows”. After they booted the Christians and their upcoming show “Flip it Forward” or something like that.

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.

Would appreciate a more open explanation of what you mean in regard to this subject. Too obscure before my second cup of coffee.

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.

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.

At this point in time, the purpose of voting is to keep the sheep pacified until slaughterday. The results have already been determined. They will allow a Conservative to be elected here and there, but never enough to be effective. The Mississippi, South Carolina, and Kentucky primary results should have demonstrated that. And with all the illegals they are bringing in....

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.

In a special election, this sap filled the seat vacated with the death of Rep. Bill Young (R). He didn't beat the female Dem candidate, Alex Sink by much.

His district includes all or part (check map on Jolly's web site) of Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Dunedin, Largo, Pinellas Park and St. Pete.

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!

Spot on, Reset. Vote for someone in whom you believe, even if all you do is write yourself in. Our right to vote is too precious to not exercise at each and every opportunity. It may seem futile, or a waste of time, but it's our civic duty to vote.

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!

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.

If someone “believes in” traditional marriage, but publicly and governmentally supports homosexual “marriage”, then let me tell you, they BELIEVE IN HOMOSEXUAL “MARRIAGE”.
