Romney Rebuffs Lesbian Mom

When a New Hampshire lesbian mom told Mitt Romney that his stance on same-sex marriage “invalidates my family,” Romney replied “I’m delighted that you have a family and you’re happy with your family. That’s the American way. … People can live their lives as they choose and children can be a great source of joy, as you know. And I welcome that.”

He then proved he meant nothing of the kind, repeating “Marriage is an institution which is designed to bring a man and woman together to raise a child and that the ideal setting for society at large is where there is a male and a female are associated with the development and nurturing a child.”

Apparently realizing all the groups he may just have offended (but clearly overlooking the grammarians), he added “There are other ways to raise kids that’s fine: single moms, grandparents raising kids, gay couples raising kids. That’s the American way, to have people have their freedom of choice.”
