Skip to comments.Keyes: Romney responsible for same-sex marriage fiasco
Posted on 02/03/2008 4:31:28 AM PST by Tigen
Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes may not get invited to the televised debates but that doesn't mean he's going stay out of the fray or attack his opponents when he believes they've abandoned his party's values particularly on the issue of same-sex marriage.
On his campaign website this week, Keyes blasted former Gov. Mitt Romney for being "single-handedly responsible for instituting same-sex marriage in Massachusetts" for the way he responded to a state court ruling in 2003.
"Most people are unaware of the way Massachusetts came to adopt same-sex marriage," the former Reagan administration diplomat said. "They think the state's Supreme Judicial Court forced it to happen. That's incorrect."
"The court merely issued an opinion stating that, in its view, the existing marriage law was unconstitutional because it failed to allow persons of the same sex to marry," Keyes said. "The court then gave the legislature 180 days to 'take such action as it may deem appropriate in light of this opinion' implicitly telling lawmakers to come up with a new marriage statute."

Alan Keyes and the Keysters.
Still crazy after all these years.
I actually like Alan, its just that this race is too big for him to be involved in now other than to get attention.
This is the same guy that got duped by Michael Moore to crowd surf with Rage Against the Machine. I trust him and WND opinion about as much as I trust what comes from Slate and Dennis Kucinech.
Keys is a liar. Point blank. Liar. A BIG FAT Liar.
no we don’t want any more liberals from massachusetts!
Alan: SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hmm..WND and Dr. Keyes seem to be implying that governors and legislatures can simply ignore court rulings.
Without going into the merits of that opinion it should be pointed out that it is simply their opinion.
Do people still look to WorldNetDaily for factual information?
I’ve had a belly-full of critter-eating liberals from Arkansas
Keyes is fulla’ sht... and so is anyone else trying to make this stick. Romney could do little against the SJC and the Legislature.
I guess Arizona wins either way.
Ignoring the MA Constitution, Romney got down on his knees (after consulting
his church for an OK) and ordered the Mass clerks to ignore the Constitution
and obey the judge from south africa and the New York Times.
Romney is the DNC's secret agent.
Surrounded by Sen. Kennedy and other beaming Democrats,
who admire their owned, trained, docile pandering RINO-Governor
who is delighted to install HillaryCARE without a vote.
Sen. John Kerry to Don Imus on RomneyCARE=HillaryCARE: "I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton on RomneyCARE=HillaryCARE: "To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Keyes jumped the sharked at least 4 years ago. Maybe longer than that.
He could have used a veto. I find it interesting that so many of you are quick to name call when someone disagrees with you... Kind of like the Ron Paul people. When did this become the cry baby forum?
There's no win with that route - only a weaker GOP.
IN MITTS WORDS ABORTION/GAY RIGHTS/GAYS IN THE BOY SCOUTS
THere ARE MORE FROM JUST A FEW YEARS AGO TOO! They are the same too!
I liked Alan and still wish Bush had chosen him as his running mate over Cheney, but he is really starting to irritate me these days.
He needs to put a sock in it and sit down.
