In an interview with Jim Daly, the president of noted gay haters, Focus on the Family, Paul Ryan reaffirmed his and Mitt Romney’s dedication to denying equal rights to LGBT people nationwide.
It’s the foundation for society and for family for thousands of years. First of all, Mitt Romney and I — I’ll just say it, it’s worth repeating — we believe marriage is between one man and one woman, that’s number one. Number two, you know where I come from we had one of those amendments in Wisconsin, I was a big supporter of it and we passed it like you say, where it’s put on the ballot it passes. The second point is, President Obama gave up defending the Defense of Marriage Act in the courts, I mean, not only is this decision to abandon this law the wrong decision, it passed in a bipartisan manner, it is very troubling because it undermines not only traditional marriage but it contradicts our system of government. It’s not the president’s job to pick and choose which laws he likes. A Romney administration will protect traditional marriage and the rule of law and we will provide the Defense of Marriage Act the proper defense in the courts that it deserves.
Though Romney’s been known to flip-flop on the issue of gay rights on his long, cretinous crawl to the top, Ryan’s been open about his anti-gay policies from day one, reminding Daly of his vehement support for a 2006 amendment banning same-sex marriage in Wisconsin.
Two days ago while in Denver, Romney himself commended Focus on the Family for its commitment to “preserving the foundation of America,” which as any minority group knows, is bigotry. Keep on preservin’, kids.
