More Than 300 Republicans Call on Supreme Court to Recognize Gay Marriage Nationally
Signers include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sens. Susan Collins and Mark Kirk and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker
More than 300 veteran Republican lawmakers, operatives and consultants have filed a friend of the court brief at the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage late Thursday.
The amicus brief, organized by former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, was filed for the four same-sex marriage cases the Court will hear on April 28 that could legalize the unions nationwide. In 2013, Mehlman marshaled a similar effort for the case that overturned California’s Proposition 8, which had banned same-sex marriage in the state.
Among the signatories are 23 current and former Republicans members of the House of Representatives and Senate and seven current and former Governors. Sens. Susan Collins and Mark Kirk have signed onto the brief, as has Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Other notables include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal and billionaire GOP mega-donor David Koch.~snip~There is a huge number of voters out there that do not approve of homosexuality or homosexual marriage who are being shouted down by the media and the pink mafia.
Way more than the less than 2% of the population that "identifies" as homosexual.
If anyone dares to stand up for their beliefs then the government is there to strong arm them to the will of the of the gay lobby.
So basically this large group of voters are being denied representation for their opposition.
When Romney lost the election a lot of pundits wondered where the voters were.
Obviously the republicans can't win if they consistently turn their backs on issues of concern to voters. I guess it's a lesson that they refuse to learn.
