McCain to Rev. Tinkywinky: I support a federal marriage amendment
Enough of this f*cking tool. He voted against a marriage amendment in 2004, saying this:
“The constitutional amendment [banning same-sex marriage] we’re debating today strikes me as antithetical in every way to the core philosophy of Republicans. It usurps from the states a fundamental authority they have always possessed and imposes a federal remedy for a problem that most states do not believe confronts them.”
Guess that core was rotten. Now he’s not only humping Dear Leader, he’s rubbing hard on the leg of Rev. Falwell and the AmTaliban as well, telling him that he’s ready to vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment, which is coming up in June. (News and Advance):
Falwell said McCain’s appearance at LU’s graduation is another sign that McCain is wooing evangelical Christians.
“He is in the process of healing the breech with evangelical groups,” Falwell said. Falwell said McCain has expressed a willingness to support a Federal Marriage Amendment, an issue dear to conservative Christians.
The amendment would define marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
Christian conservatives, including Falwell, are concerned about efforts by homosexual groups to have civil unions between same-sex partners recognized as marriages. McCain previously has said the matter of defining marriage should be handled by state legislatures, but now concedes that a federal statute may be necessary, Falwell said.
I’m just sick of people talking about how moderate McCain is. He’s the sHillary of the Republicans, willing to do anything to achieve and maintain power. Actually, he’s worse. The man’s a war hero and he’s sh*t all that political capital away as a tool of GWB, the man who kicked him in the balls in SC in 2000, and keeps coming back for more.
As Michael Jensen at The Big Gay Picture notes:
So what changed between McCain’s statement in 2004 and today? Why is there a sudden urgent need to amend the constitution to take away rights? Why is McCain outing himself as an utter hypocrite? It’s because he believes he stands a real chance of being the next Republican presidential nominee. And as anyone who follows presidential politics knows by now, you don’t get that nomination without first selling your soul to the religious right. McCain just sold his–and all he had to do was sacrifice our rights.
