Fred Thompson - Gay Marriage
Thompson said Friday he will not support a federal gay marriage ban. Thompson thinks the states should decide. Thompson did support the federal Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. What year did Fred catch his Federalist infection? I see a pattern here. Like the recent flip flopping on Laura Ingraham's show about S-27. Like his questionnaire answers on Abortion where he wrote-
"Abortions should be legal in all circumstances as long as the procedure is completed within the first trimester of the pregnancy."
Fred did vote pro life, but that statement and many others bother me. I prefer a consistent candidate who is not selling Kool Aide to appeal to both sides. A man with a solid 26 year record of votes and floor speeches.
"I firmly believe that marriage is one of the most important social institutions we have and that it is central to promoting family values and raising children in a healthy environment. It is for this reason that I cosponsored and voted in favor of H.J. Res. 88 (Musgrave-CO), which proposes an amendment to the U.S. Constitution declaring that marriage in the United States shall consist solely of the union of a man and a woman. Numerous studies indicate fathers excel at reducing antisocial behavior and delinquency in boys and sexual activity in girls, while mothers provide emotional security and read the physical and emotional cues of infants. I firmly believe that children need the unique influence offered by both a father and a mother"~Duncan Hunter
