Romney Opposses Gay Marriage & Civil Unions: Go Mitt!

Gov. Mitt Romney will support a state constitutional amendment to prohibit gay marriage & civil unions. Now, this is what I like to see...an LDS politician who serves as a leader on an issue that his church has championed. Let it not be said that LDS politicians are like far too many Catholic politicians; i.e. in open opposition to the religious leaders they claim to follow.

Mitt's actually looking beyond the mark as far as his religious leaders' advice is concerned; LDS leaders have sometimes encouraged and explored civil union laws, as in Hawaii, while clearly discouraging the use of the word "marriage."

Good point RT. However, my point was to openly opposition; not the potential for possible opposing views on specific policies.

Also, as to Hawaii; their law wasn't a "civil union" law; it was a "partnership" law, which allowed _ANY_ two individuals to be in a legal partnership...not just same sex partner choosing people.
