Newt Gingrich said that conservatives will have to accept marriage equality after three more states this year voted to allow same sex marriage and more will likely do the same in the 2014 election.

The former Speaker of the House said he didn’t expect gay rights to become the “wave” issue it has, but that he can accept the difference between a marriage in a church and a legal document, reported Huffington Post.

It looks like the Newt critics here several months ago were right about him. In the end, he is a RINO and not much different than Mitt Romney.

Real conservatives don’t and won’t accept it.

Fake conservatives like Newton do accept it.

He likes being invited to the DC parties — therefore he has to use the right words on certain issues — he likes being liked by people who would stab him in the back at the first opportunity.

It must be something in the water in DC, or maybe the air . . .

I don’t have to accept anything. I may have to live with it, but I don’t have to accept it.

There already IS “marriage equality.” Any gay man can marry the exact same set of people that any straight man can, and the same goes for lesbians and straight women.

What “marriage equality” really means is “using the power of government to redefine society’s most basic institution to fit our personal, private preference.”

Just another ‘bandwagon’ Conservative. He deems himself Conservative only when there is political benefit for him and the rest of his RINOs on the bandwagon.

SCUM.

We may not want to listen to a man on gay marriage who has been married three times.

Marriage equality exists today. It existed yesterday. And 100 years before that.

I’m not bothered about John Doe being straight, gay, confused, bisexual, asexual, or acrobatic. If he wishes to marry a female he can have at it and equality with every other marriage in recorded history will be instantaneous and automatic.

But John Doe’s desire to ‘marry’ Joe Sixpack is an impossibility because marriage already has a definition and John/Joe ain’t it.

I can call a giraffe a dog but that won’t make it bark.

Newt may be a fag, but he’s no authority on marriage.

We'll "accept" fake pervert marriage like we'll accept government gun grabbing, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, and higher taxes.

Just bend over. Newt wants to be the first to service us.

We had a thread winner. The board is no longer taking further entries.

We can either be Christian or American, but not both?

Those of us who questioned the sincerity of Newt’s claimed embrace of the Catholic faith may now take a few moments to feel smug.

It must be a virus carried by the mosquitoes in the Potomac that causes conservatives to go over to the dark side once they get to DC.

And dumped his cancer-stricken wife to fornicate with a woman while he was STILL married.

How can gays, being 3% of the population, be in every family and every community?
