2006: Romney on Repealing Marriage Equality in Massachusetts (2006)

October 26, 2019


For republican massachusetts governor
Mitt Romney, a mormon hoping to launch his presidential bid in january, undoing
the Massachusetts supreme court two thousand four decision legalizing gay
marriage is becoming a signature issue for two
thousand eight… And this week we will file an action before the courts calling upon
the judiciary to protect the constitutional rights of
our citizens to vote. Romney opposes gay marriage and wants
the Massachusetts high court to let voters decide state policy with a ballot
question defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Ten days ago state lawmakers refused to
approve the referendum: Romney is suing. I was struck by the irony and the hypocrisy, legislators so energized to protect the
newly discovered right to marry for some citizens had no compunction whatsoever
about trampling the long established constitutional right of the
people to vote.

  2. People should not be allowed to vote on the civil rights of other citizens. Even a sleazy two-faced dirt bag like Romney should know that.

  3. What if we let Mississppi citizens "vote" on black rights? This just doesn't make any sense.

    And no, I don't care if "Being gay is a choice!" Even if it was, which is questionable…so is being a Christian, and we don't to "vote" if we can descriminate against them, do we?

  4. If the people are allowed to vote on the subject of equal rights, they will vote against them. That's how it tends to work out. There are any number of reasons for this, my favorite being that fear of being faced with something they find "icky" tends to motivate people to speak up, and there's also issues of disenfranchisement for minority voters and occasional (unconstitutional) "legal" hurdles, but either way, pitting the right to vote over the equal rights of others is a total shell game.

  5. Romney is going to lose the election. I will be glad when it is over so he will shut up. His hatred does not reflect ALL Mormons, or even Republicans. It is a sad thing to see such ignorance.

  6. This is just disgusting!! I swear, if Mittens becomes president I'm gonna plan to move to Canada. At least that country isn't run by hateful bigots and homophobes. (not that the US is completely run by hateful bigoted homophobes, but there's more bad than good)
    I bet if marriage equality is repealed then segregation will return. Oh, and might as well bring back slavery. Mitt wants to bring us back to the 1890's…
