RNC Chair Candidates Slap GOProud’s Barron Across The Face: No Gay Marriage For You

Given their interviews with the National Organization for Marriage, which included lines like Reince Priebus’ “[the] sanctity of marriage [is] given to us by God,” it should come as no surprise that every single prominent candidate to chair the RNC opposes same-sex marriage. Even Michael Steele, in a sad attempt to keep his job, sides with his peers. Priebus, speaking at yesterday’s debate, said, “I don’t believe that judges can rewrite the Constitution and redraft what marriage is,” pointing toward Iowa. “I think there is a sanctity of marriage. Everyone should be loved but at the end of the day, I believe that marriage through the sanctity of marriage should be between one man and one woman.” LOL, because didn’t GOProud’s Christopher Barron just insist conservatives are coming around on things?

      Nice to see that the RNC Candidates are bowing to a known hate group, I’m sure the party will enjoy all the money these hate groups will throw their way as well in the next presidential election. Why to go GOP !!

      More proof that GOProud is very effective at persuading our “conservative” friends.

      And remind us again, what is President Obama’s position on same-sex marriage?

    • Obama DID say DADT would happen on his watch... (John From England)


      His position is that gays deserve equal rights and equal unions across the board. His position is that this f*cked up religious country has and obsessive need to be conservative about everything, so realistically in order to. Appease every person, the fight for marriage will have to be an evolving process because you have the rich religious nut jobs to fight.

      His views before he ran as president was that we should have gay marriage. He publicly vot for it in Chicago.

      Now tell me kerian, which one of those dudes up there or in your right wing party that gave the whole world the recession, was actually for gay rights publicly with the career previously? And tell us which have said publicly that gays deserves equal rights under the law? And tell me which republican or democratic president at the time that they were president actually mentioned gays during speeches and publicly has said that gays deserve rights?

      You have serious issues.

      @Obama DID say DADT would happen on his watch… (John From England): I’m right there with you until you say that the USA gave the world the depression. Please explain this. I mean, normally all you non-USA people are bitching about how the USA is weaker than your country and that your country knows better and blah, blah, blah…

      So, how could we have given you the depression. I think you need to turn to your own leadership when assigning blame.

      Also, it makes no difference what Obama’s take on marriage was before he gained the power to do anything about it on a national level because Obama has proven time and time again that Obama the candidate and Obama the President come together on issues about as well as oil and water.

      Really, John? Remember this number?

      Obama defends DOMA in federal court. Says banning gay marriage is good for the federal budget. Invokes incest and marrying children.
      by John Aravosis


      And let’s not forget that Chairman Obama’s DoJ fought the Log Cabin Republicans’ DADT lawsuit. Where was the HRC’s Joe Dirtyknees on that one? He makes $300 grand a year to do….what? And let’s not forget that Harry Reid threw gays under the bus TWICE to score political points.

      If the RNC Chair candidates slapped Chris Barron across the face, then the liberals are stomping gays into the dirt and Gay Inc. begs for more.

      And btw, Obama opposes gay marriage but supports the right of the states to determine if they want civil unions. The same position which Bush was vilified as a bigot homophobe.
