So, should Gingrich become president, does that mean he just might take into account that the majority of Americans show they support marriage equality and say, you know what, it’s time to be on the right side of history?
Puhleeze, people. Don’t be so gullible.
Here’s what the Newt believes, will always believe, and if he ever becomes president you can be sure he will enforce:
“I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. I think that’s what marriage ought to be and I would like to find ways to defend that view as legitimately and effectively as possible,” he said.
He also disagrees with Obama for not defending the Defense of Marriage Act, according to Reuters.
“I think the president should be, frankly, enforcing that act, and I think we are drifting toward a terrible muddle which I think is going to be very, very difficult and painful to work our way out of,” he said.
So, please, if you fall for a headline saying Gingrinch now supports gay marriage, just consider the source. Gingrich is not an ally, and he will never be an ally. He is not our friend and his positions are no joking matter when it comes to a serious struggle for equality.
