That's the problem with Mr. Etch-a-sketch. One moment he's campaigning for governor promising gays he will offer more support for their causes than Ted Kennedy. The next he's supporting a constitutional amendment defending marriage. Then he's personally rolling out gay marriage, when he didn't have to.
Which candidate demanded Boy Scouts accept gays in leadership positions? Romney
Who named a well known gay activist as a key spokesman? Romney
Who put a gay activist in a leadership role in the Department of Education? Obama (two peas in a pod if you ask me)
Keyes: Romney responsible for same-sex marriage fiasco
Mitt Romney pushed through same-sex marriage all by himself, in the absence of any authority or requirement to do so, having a complete misunderstanding of his role as governor and of the significance of the courts opinion, said Keyes."
Romney did more for Gay Marriage nation wide as Governor of Mass than Obama did as President. I can't vote for either.
Keyes needs to do more research.
The SC ruled, the citizens put forward an intitiative petition to vote on a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and the legislature blocked the proposed amendment from being placed on the ballot. Without the constitutional amendment, the SC ruling stands.
"Standing today with Governor Romney in support of the Protection of Marriage Amendment, which would allow the voters of the Commonwealth to determine the definition of marriage in Massachusetts, were Seán Cardinal O'Malley, OFM Cap, Archdiocese of Boston; Bishop George Coleman, Diocese of Fall River; Bishop Robert McManus, Diocese of Worcester; Dr. Roberto Miranda, Chairman, VoteOnMarriage.org; Kris Mineau, President, Massachusetts Family Institute; a bi-partisan group of state legislators and other Amendment supporters from government and the private sector."
