    Paul Ryan reiterated his opposition to marriage equality, during a town hall in Cincinnati, Ohio on Tuesday. “The things you talk about like traditional marriage and family and entrepreneurship. These aren’t values that are indicative to any one person or creed or color. These are American values, these are universal human values,” he said in response to a question from the audience.

    ...um...not that I am against marriage equality (far from it)...but the clip and the article seems to distort the headline of this thread and the article...

    ...saying one thing does not exactly mean you oppose alternative beliefs...

    Isn't the top of his ticket from a non-traditional religion in America which espoused a non-traditional form of marriage?

    Well you know it's gona come to pass sooner or latter; not sure about America though. So I'm just lucky I'm in no rush, so one way or another it makes no diffrece to my life, or to being loved either; seems I win either way; oh it's great to be gay.

    That ticking sound you hear is time running out for anti-gay Team Romney.
    Their bigotry is sickening, but the good news is they are about to be humiliated in front of the nation as they lose big time. And the better news is we won't have to listen to their anti-gay garbage any more.

    ^^^ This ^^^ The amount of disingenuous misinterpretation of someone's words around here is often-times astounding. ThinkProgress is rapidly becoming a gay version of The National Enquirer.

    Nope, you can't have sex with them, either. They won't even have you.

    TRUE, ".saying one thing does not exactly mean you oppose alternative beliefs",

    UNLESS OF COURSE,

    Paul Ryan had not already made his STAND AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE, VERY, VERY CLEAR !

    Watch his speech at last week's Values Voters Summit.

    Also consider his stand against the repeal of DADT. Though now he does concede that it's too late to continue opposing the repeal, Ryan still will not agree that allowing gays to serve openly was the right thing to do.

    "DISINGENUOUS" ?

    "DISINGENUOUS" is trying to imply that Paul Ryan is not ANTI-GAY.

    Ryan has made himself very clear on every issue involving our rights.

    Paul Ryan Opposes Gay Equality.......from the repeal of DADT to Marriage Equality.

    Misleading title. Things Paul Ryan has also done and said:

    He supported the Non-Discrimination Act (in hiring) of 2007, explaining that, “They didn’t roll out of bed one morning and choose to be gay. That’s who they are.”

    mocktwinkie, Yours is a misleading post.

    Back in 2007, Romney would have happily been the best man at your gay wedding.

    HIS POSITION(S) and RYAN'S HAVE CHANGED A LOT SINCE 2007.

    Any enlightenment Paul Ryan felt in 2007 has seriously faded as both he and Mitt have decided to get in bed with the Tea Party and religious lunatics.

    No it isn't. Paul Ryan has even said "it's a generational thing".

    Romney and Ryan know that they absolutely need the "traditional marriage" crowd. They are simply an essential voting block. I realize it isn't right but democrats pander to their constituents as well.

    HOW PATHETIC:

    "Romney and Ryan know that they absolutely need the "traditional marriage" crowd. They are simply an essential voting block. I realize it isn't right but democrats pander to their constituents as well."


    "I REALIZE IT ISN'T RIGHT....but"

    Well, as long as you know it isn't right, do you get to feel you still have a conscience?

    What makes you think I'm defending that particular position? I'm for marriage equality. There are a multiplicity of factors when it comes to choosing a candidate, however.
