If Elected Senator, Charlie Crist Won’t Try to Ban Homosexuals From Living Together

I always LOL a little bit when Florida Gov. Charlie Crist opens his mouth, but I’m totally an ROFL type of guy when this guy discusses anything gay. Like he was doing on CNN’s State of the Union, railing against letting homosexuals like him get married.

Crist, an over-sized Oompa-Loompa in a loving opposite marriage, says he’s all for a constitutional ban on gay marriage (“I believe it is between a man and a woman”). But. BUT! He’s a “”live and let live kind of guy” when it comes to gays living together (“I don’t have a problem with it”).

That is: He’s fine with you and your roommate, or “special friend,” sharing an abode, but please don’t go asking for file your taxes together or, hevs forbid, the right to pass on your estate without ridiculous penalties.

But keep in mind, Crist has a tendency to say things he doesn’t mean. Or rather, get confused over what he’s supposed to support. Like healthcare reform. So his honchos released this statement: :In an interview that aired today, I was not discussing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning same-sex marriage, which I do not support, but rather reaffirming my position regarding Florida’s constitutional ban that I articulated while running for Governor. In fact, the interviewer’s question reflected just that. I am fully supportive of civil unions and will continue to be as a United States Senator, but believe marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman.”
