Fred Thompson Clarifies Gay Marriage Stance

Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson reiterated his anti-gay marriage policy today.

Rather than flat out banning gay marriage, the federalism loving Thompson (pictured, looking sinister) simply wants to make sure judges don’t make legislative decisions. And, what’s more, he claims social conservatives – not including James Dobson – agree with him.

Everyone I have talked to in my meetings like this, the answer has been yes. I think they prefer their own wording. They are primarily concerned about marriage being a union between a man and a woman.

What I have done is fashion something that says judges can’t do that any more. It’ll stop the process in its tracks because it’s all judge-made. No state legislature accompanied by a governor’s signature has gone down that road.

Yeah! Our nation’s courts should just stay out of the equality debate. They’re obviously aren’t qualified to interpret constitutional law or anything…
