Posted on 04/30/2012 1:30:07 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
As Mitt Romney prepares for his second presidential campaign and gay marriage threatens to undermine Americas Judeo-Christian culture, theres a raging debate about the role he played in instituting gay marriage in Massachusetts during his gubernatorial term. This is important because Governor Romney has positioned himself as a champion of traditional values and claims to have been an opponent of homosexual marriage his entire career.
When the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of homosexual marriage, the Goodridge case Romney unilaterally ordered his state agencies to implement homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. The court did not order him to do this nor had the legislature codified this ruling. Combined with a promise by President Obama to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act, this action by Romney has led significantly contributed to the spread of homosexual marriage nationwide.
Make no mistake; Romneys action was utterly illegal. In four different parts of the Massachusetts Constitution, it is clearly stated that only the legislature can change laws and one section specifically states that the marriage statutes are determined by the legislature, not by the courts. Even the Supreme Court itself stated that it could not order the legislature to act. All Romney had to do was to declare the court had no authority to enforce its unconstitutional opinion and ignore its decision.
But instead of doing that, Romney abruptly claimed the court opinion was now the law of the land and ordered his Town Clerks and Justices of the Peace to marry homosexuals even though the legislature never acted to codify the ruling. Indeed, according to a Fox News/AP story, the attorney for the homosexual plaintiffs in Goodridge, held the view that the legislature would have to codify the Goodridge ruling:

Romney is our nominee...or so it appears. Between Romney or Obama, who would you rather have in the office?
No, he’s your nominee, not mine.
Why would I vote or support somebody whose record is so similiar to Obama’s that he guarantees Obama’s re-election?
You just helped me make up my mind. I’m voting for 0bama. Why change horses in the middle of the stream?
Romney is the man whether we like him or not. He has to be better than the POS that’s in the WH now. We can stand 4 years of Romney but we can’t stand 4 more years of Obama!!
“Romney is our nominee...or so it appears. Between Romney or Obama, who would you rather have in the office?”
I’d rather bulldoze the office and rebuild from the original blueprint.
Not "our" nominee. He's a libtard's wet dream. No thanks. I'll vote for a Conservative like Virgil Goode. History shows that if you fail to support a Conservative, a liberal wins.
There may be some Republicans down ticket who are Conservative which I can support, but vote for the guy who spent millions attacking the Tea Party? No thanks. As a matter of fact, NFW!
I might write in Allen West.
I don’t care if Romnay married a a man I would still vote for him against Obama./
Romney aint much , but he isn’t Muslim eoither, and he may be wrongheaded , but he doesn’t hate America.
He has to be! HE HAS TO BE! HE HAS TO BE!!! Now, click your heels together and say "There's no place like home!"
Who TF is Virgil Goode?.
How many votes will he get. Yours and who elses.?
Smart move why go to the polls at all, just stay home.
In all actuality, we can’t stand either.
That’s right. All Romney would do is slow down the train wreck.
We’d all better continue getting into survival mode, folks.
Nice chart. Too bad Newt’s not the nominee. For the record, I voted for Newt in the PA primary. Newt lost. Romney won. Don’t like it, but it is what it is. Romney will still be far better for the country than Obama.
Do you happen to know who is behind that website? All I can find on whois is it is registered to
“Whois Privacy Protection Service, Inc.
PMB 368, 14150 NE 20th St - F1
Bellevue, WA 98007
And that leads to a company called canvasdreams.com, which is a company that hides the owners of websites from the public. I am just wondering if you are pimping a democrat supported website without knowing it?
Then what would you recommend ??
I didn’t vote for McCain in the last election because I thought (and still do) that he was a no good POS. That was my mistake and I won’t make it again. If for no other reason I believe Romney will be much better on National Defense than Obama. As for Romney’s record on Gay’s, who gives a $h!T !! As long as they don’t interfere in my personal life I could care less.
How about if he married a goat? Just trying to see which other of your conservative principles are negotiable. I mean, we've already learned your price.
He may be the GOP's nominee, but he's not "our" nominee if "our" refers to conservatives.
