    NYT: No Republican presidential candidate supports allowing same-sex couples to marry, and the differences are largely a matter of how aggressively they will continue to resist.

    Of course they do -- the Rethuglican-Confederate Party hates gays. Now contrast their response with Hillary's:



    Republicans and conservatives are stuck in the past and unfit to govern.

    They also denounce the Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act, known too as "Obama Care". They also seem to disapprove of the concept of Separation of Church and State. Basically, they are unAmerican.

    And what happened to all the conservatives who pledged to leave the country if the Supreme Court sided with marriage equality?
    I've been setting aside money to help pay their way OUT. icon_biggrin.gif

    Did some conservatives really threaten to move to Canada, where same-sex marriage has been legal for the past 10 years?
    'Frying pan and fire' springs to mind. A move to Islamic State would probably suit them better.

    I don't think all of them totally denounced the ruling. Both Bush and Graham encouraged that we be respectful and move on beyond the issue now that the SCOTUS has put it to rest. Santorum, Huckabee, and Cruz seemed the only ones who totally denounced. Huckabee looked like he was about to blow a gasket over it. Ugh! He's so annoying.

    Scott Walker wants an amendment to allow states to define marriage. He might be in a position to win the Republican nomination.

    The anti-gay hostility of every single GOP Presidential candidate is especially dangerous considering the advanced age of some of the Supreme Court justices.
    Homophobic Republicans would love nothing more than to be elected president and then appoint far-right bigots to change the balance of the Supreme Court. That's how we got stuck with national embarrassments Clarence Thomas and Scalia (who, by the way, thinks gay Americans should be imprisoned. Thanks again for that one, Republicans!)

    He's a little late to the party. This issue is all but put to rest. 10 years from now people will be rolling their eyes at what a fuss that was made over it.

    Just one more reason to elect Democrats next year. The minute we get a Republican President (may the Good Lord forbid it) conservatives will be trying to bring back anti-gay Jim Crow, with laws allowing businesses to deny service to gays and a marriage amendment re-criminalizing gay marriage coming up round the pike.

    Republicans are unfit to govern a modern country.
