Mitt Romney Flip-Flops
“I believe every American deserves equal opportunity” – so says Mitt Romney. "I was wrong" to say in 1994 that "all people should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation . . . . I’ve led the fight to protect traditional marriage. I’ve taken every legal step I could conceive of to prevent same sex marriage.”
For the overwhelming number of heterosexuals in this country that means also the equal opportunity to get a marriage license should they fall in love and want a mutually committed relationship. But homosexuals, no less law abiding, no less tax paying, no less legally voting, no less moral than heterosexual citizens, are not allowed to get a marriage license – are disenfranchised from the rights, privileges, and rewards that our government bestows on heterosexuals.
When will conservatives educate themselves that homosexuals are (1) not a threat to traditional marriage, and (2) giving equality to homosexuals to marry could actually strengthen the concept of marriage and stable community?
