Sen. Rand Paul is on a college tour speaking to college students and at one of his college speeches, a student asked him about his thoughts on gay marriage and this is what he said…
“I don’t want my guns registered in Washington or my marriage,” he told me. “Founding Fathers all got married by going down to the local courthouse. It is a local issue and always has been.”
But can Republicans win a national election if they aren’t in tune with rapidly changing opinions on the matter? He took a soft tone.
“Society’s changing,” he said. “I mean, people change their minds all the time on this issue, and even within the Republican Party, there are people whose child turns out to be gay and they’re like, oh well maybe I want to rethink this issue. So it’s been rethought. The President’s rethought the issue. So I mean, a lot of people have rethought the issue.”
“The bottom line is, I’m old fashioned, I’m a traditionalist,” he said. “I believe in old-fashioned traditional marriage. But, I don’t really think the government needs to be too involved with this, and I think that the Republican Party can have people on both sides of the issue.”
If I remember correctly, the gay marriage issue wasn’t a big deal under George W. Bush as president. The gay marriage movement didn’t start until Barack Obama got elected. Sen. Paul is so right that government should stay out of the marriage issue. It’s none of the government’s business on who gets married be it either straight or gay.
I really hate how the gay marriage movement has gotten so huge.
In the past, I used to defend traditional marriage like crazy in facebook but I keep gay marriage topics off of facebook ’cause I can’t stand liberals views on it. They really are intolerant sons of bitches. They won’t let you have your opinion if you oppose to gay marriage. The only reason I think liberals get so obsessed with defending gay marriage is because of their ego and self importance. They do it as a way to feel special and do it as a way to make people around them feel proud of them. If you oppose gay marriage, they will do all they can to change your opinion on it. They want you to believe in equal rights. They want conservatives to have a change of heart with gay marriage. This is why I keep gay marriage topics off of my facebook page although it is fun to get liberals going.
I’m sure liberals are hating Rand Paul for this and I’m sure many people are calling him a homophobe or a bigot ’cause he defending traditional marriage. This is how horrible liberals really are.
Also, liberals claim they’re huge supporters of homosexuality and gay marriage… yet they make claims they aren’t gay themselves. Watch out for that stuff and don’t trust ’em. Chances are, they are closeted homosexuals either that or they are slightly interested in homosexuality (some people out there are secretly bi-curious).
I don’t give a shit what anybody says. Gay marriage isn’t normal. It is now legal in 19 states and it really shouldn’t be. I was pissed when New York State legalized it. It’s just wrong. Marriage SHOULD be between a man and woman. I’m sticking with my opinion.
I’m glad the Supreme Court continues to ignore the possibility of gay marriage being legalized in the USA. I hope it never happens. Gay marriage being legalized in the USA… if it does happen, then we’re fucked.
