Skip to comments.(Virgil)Goode: Romney ‘father of homosexual marriages’ (Constitution Party Candidate)

Former Fifth District Congressman Virgil Goode blasted presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as the father of homosexual marriages in a statement released to the news media on the eve of Romneys visit to Liberty University this weekend.
Goode, now running for president on the Constitution Party ticket, referred to Romneys move as Massachusetts governor to issue same-sex marriage licenses in the wake of a state-court ruling.
Gov. Romney did not stand fast in favor of traditional marriage, said Goode, who lost his Fifth District seat in 2008 to Democrat Tom Perriello.
Goode said he has been a consistent supporter of defining marriage as being between one man and one woman.
At this point in our countrys history, we need a president who will stand firmly behind traditional marriage and the Federal Marriage Amendment. I am suspicious that Gov. Romney, if elected president, could waffle again, Goode said.
The stakes, to Goode: If homosexual marriages become normal across the country, the impact on states like Virginia, which prohibit gay marriage, will be huge. State taxpayers will have to pay for the expanded health insurance costs and State retirement costs. At the federal level, the impact on the Social Security Trust Fund and the Department of Defense will be significant when homosexual partners are granted the same monetary benefits that heterosexual married couples have under current Social Security law and provisions covering military spouses, he said.
Exactly. Where does the homosexualist movement think the money from future generations is going to come from if there is no future generations. Of course they’ll try to say “Gays can reproduce” to which I respond certainly. They can reproduce heterosexually just like the rest of us do. But there is no such thing as homosexual “reproduction.”
Yes. It says so right on my homepage.
So, do you retract your inaccurate claim?
>few outside of his treehouse have even heard of him.<
You’re calling Virginia’s Fifth District a treehouse? Cute.
Would be nice to see him campaign against Obama.
Goode is definitely somebody I could support. Obama isn't getting my vote, nor is Romney. I wouldn't feel like I needed to take a shower after voting for someone like Goode.
“The bitter irony is that the one way the msm could guarantee the reelection of their messiah would be to promote Goodes candidacy. But their natural response to a man like Goode is to roundly ignore him. It will be interesting to see if they ever figure it out.”
They know and I bet Mr Goode’s campaign gets a sudden influx of cash from unions, asian dishwashers and a few Buddhist monks..
Facts seem to always ruin a good and endlessly repeated rant.
Just to review:
The MA supreme court legalized Homo marriage which Romney was against.
The court gave the state 180 days to comply.
On the last possible day, after the legislature did not act, Romney made the move to obey the court order.
If Romney is the father of homosexual marriage, then there are a lot of conservative governors (who did not ignore the court in Roe vs Wade) who are the fathers of legalized abortion.
Tell me what I said that was inaccurate, and if it is, then I’ll say it is.
You can stop digging a hole for yourself now.
You're either voting FOR the queer lovers Obama and Romney, or you'll take a stand, do what's right, and vote for Goode.
Goode is on record saying he will accept no more than $200 from any donor. Unions don’t roll that way.
The court gave the legislature 180 days to comply.
Romney jumped the gun on the legislature.
HOWEVER, Goode has said that Romney did not “stand fast”.
That is entirely accurate. Even by your claim, Romney still caved in rather than fight.
mitt... The Chameleon Candidate.
If you vote for a liberal socialist hack (that will be in for 8 more years) to defeat a socialist liberal hack (that will be in 4 more years) what have you gained by voting (R)?
So what day did he jump in? The 1st? 30th? 100th? 150th? 175th?
"Even by your claim, Romney still caved in rather than fight."
So then by your standards, every conservative governor who caved rather than fight Roe vs Wade is the father of Abortion.
Romney even led protests in front of the courthouse trying to FORCE the legislature to act on the Marriage constitutional amendment. What more did you want him to do? Call out the national guard?
While Romney ordered the licenses to be issued, it was for the date state supreme court had required compliance by.
Romney fought the legislature's delaying tactics in an effort to get it overturned but he was out of office before it could finally get to the public vote.
Do I think they have the right to create laws? Of course not. They do it the same way the USSC does it.
"what were the reprecussions to Governor Willard (sworn to uphold the laws and constitution of the state) for ignoring the judges' unenforcable judicial activism as the legislature did?
Just guessing but something along the lines of what Judge Moore faced in Alabama? Some timeline highlights:
Nov. 18, 2003 Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) rules that same-sex marriage is protected in the Mass. Constitution
Feb. 5, 2004 Romney publishes editorial in Wall Street Journal laying all blame on the SJC for problem in Massachusetts. Suggests other states strengthen marriage statutes and pass constitutional amendments.
March 29-31, 2004 Romney seeks stay of SJC ruling until constitutional amendment issue is settled, but Atty. General Reilly refuses to take Governors case before SJC.
April 15, 2004 Romney files emergency bill in Legislature to seek stay of SJC ruling, and is rebuffed and reprimanded by Senate President Travaglini. On April 15, 2004 Romney filed an emergency bill in the Legislature to seek a stay of the SJC ruling, and was rebuffed and reprimanded by Senate President Travaglini.
April 29, 2004 Romney writes to 49 other Governors to inform them hell uphold section of Mass. marriage statutes banning same-sex marriages for out-of-state couples.
June 22, 2004 Romney testifies before US Senate Judiciary Committee for federal marriage amendment and blames Court for situation in Massachusetts.
June 2, 2006 Romney sends letter to US Congress arguing for federal marriage amendment.
June 28, 2006 Romney urges Legislature to vote on VOM amendment, and addresses importance of following Constitution.
Nov. 19, 2006 Romney holds rally on State House steps announcing hes delivering a copy of the Constitution to every Legislator who voted to recess the Constitutional Convention (to avoid the vote on the VOM amendment required by state Constitution). Romney also announces hes appealing to the courts.
Seems like some strange actions for the so called "father" of homo marriage.
Finally, an honest candidate for President of the US.
