Republican governors signal shift on
gay marriage in bid to attract voters

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/13/2014 2:41:52 PM

Deep in the Bible Belt, new signs emerged this weekend of evolving views among Republican governors on gay marriage. While the Republican Party´s religious conservatives continue to fight against same-sex marriage, its governors appear to be backing off their opposition – in their rhetoric, at least. For some, the shift may be more a matter of tone than substance as the GOP tries to attract new voters ahead of the midterm elections. Nonetheless, it is a dramatic turn for a party that has long been defined by social conservative values. "I don´t think the Republican Party is fighting it," Wisconsin´s

Comments:
Anyone who actually believes that “signaling” a “shift” towards sexual deviancy will have the DemocRAT voters flocking to the GOP has definitely been doing way too many “recreational” drugs.

“I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for America’s gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nation’s military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.” — Willard Mitt Romney 1994 (While running against Ted Kennedy for Massachusetts Senate Seat) The First RepublicRat to embrace the Perverse Sexual Deviants...

Are these guys nuts??? The country is circling the drain and gay marriage is the one thing that has them focused? Fellas, just side step that issue and tell the gaystapo, I´ll get back to you. The country is on fire right at this moment and we need to put it out! If you had a patriotic bone in your body, you would end the gay victim melodrama and get your priorities straight, no pun intended. There are more important issues than if your sexual preferences aren´t being respected or not. Republicans needs to put the media in its place when they bring this up. This is not the pressing issue of the day! Saving the Republic is!!

In article posted yesterday, Ben Carson is quoted:

http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=792099

“I actually would favor a voting system, in which there were no political designations on the ballot, where you actually had to know what the person believed. You had to know how they voted in the past.”

Apply that to this situation ...

About what I expected from the so called establishment. About 2% of the people in this country are Gay, they make a lot of noise, so Republican governors just jumped on the bandwagon and could have irritated 98% of the rest of the country.

I have always looked at the welfare of children as the reason for marriage. I´d say trust nature on this and if Gays want to enter into Civil Unions, then fine just don´t destroy and demean Mother Nature for a what you think are a few votes.

I´d like to know who voted for this shifty vote and those opposed. Meanwhile the country is being overrun with diseased invaders allowed by a so called President who thinks he is King.

Worry about that for just a few minutes. Waiting... waiting.

Most people I know who are in a company of those they believe will not intimidate them are against same sex marriage. They are not against gay people, in fact they have many friends, acquaintances and business associates that are gay. The campaign to intimidate people so they don´t speak out has worked well against individuals, politicians and political parties. It is time people speak their minds and let the chips fall where they may as far as their friendships; friends should be able to disagree and not be disagreeable.

The left is secular and has adopted leftist policies as their religion, so what it amounts to with gay marriage is their effort to put another crack in the Judea Christian religions. Since our entire Constitution is based on these aforementioned religious tenets, it amounts to destroying the Constitution, which is also an effort of the left.

They apparently treat GOP voters like the Dems treat their voters. Nothing will stop a Dem from voting for a Dem. On the other hand the governors don´t seem to be thinking about how many voters they will lose.

They don´t call the GOP the stupid party for no reason.

Why are these idiots convinced this will be a winning strategy? Gay marriage is an issue that´s only important to a very small number of people. The state by state legalization was due to judicial interference, against the people´s will. What exactly is the difference between Democrats and Republicans?

Oy vey! This decision has been decided and its a sign that there are people who understand that a majority of Americans want marriage rights extended to gay people. The reality is that most Americans do not want to be ruled by the religious Right and on this issue gay marriages are going to be recognized by the civil authorities. Sorry, that´s the truth so get use to it.

My perception of the Buckeye State´s GOP is they are more liberal. I admit am biased, Ohio is not a favorite state for me. In conservative states, we object to one judge deciding marriage is for gays. This is what happened in my state, Virginia. The poster may be right that this is the way it will be, but we do not have to vote for GOP leaders that do not stand for traditional values.

Unfortunately for Scott Walker his comment is a big negative for me and might make me less likely to support his candidacy should he want to run for President. I will choose someone in line with my values.

That facts are that there are a substantial percentage of Republicans that are values voters. They are solid Republican voters because they know the Demon-RATs are totally opposed to their values.

If the Republican establishment starts to cave on core value beliefs, they are not going to pick up a single vote, but they are going to lose even more of their base voters.

Don´t get me wrong, I don´t take anything from the AP as having any facts behind it. But, sadly, as pitiful as the RNC has become, I wouldn´t doubt that this one is true...

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me

The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
