Pro-Obama Site Slams Paley for Supporting Gay Rights
Thanks to Green Little Football, we learned today that a pro-Obama site foolishly gamed google so its post would pop up anytime a person inserted the name "Sarah Paley" with the word "gay."
Are these yahoos a bunch of idiots or what?? After a little sleuthing, GLF learned the site owner was an Obamazoid shilling for the man. Of course, former Hillary supporters and independents have now had a chance to see that unlike the hype, Gov. Palin is no ideologue and respects civil liberties for ALL.
Sarah Palin (GOV-Alaska-Republican), supports gay rights, says Anchorage Daily News.
Quote “Gov. Sarah Palin vetoed a bill Thursday that sought to block the state from giving public employee benefits such as health insurance to same-sex couples.”
Quote “”It is the Governor’s intention to work with the legislature and to give the people of Alaska an opportunity to express their wishes and intentions whether these benefits should continue,“ the statement from Palin’s administration said.”
Coghill said he’s interested in a new plan that would allow state employees to designate one person — maybe a same-sex partner, but also possibly a family member or roommate — who would be eligible for state-paid benefits. But the employee would have to pay to add that person to his or her benefits.“Sarah Palin’s veto gave gays the same rights as married couples in Alaska.
A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote for gay marriage.
One more reason not to be afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, my little chickedees. His threatening growls are quite toothless.
I'm a Pentacostal Christian, extremely loyal Republican, and yes, some have called me far-right. Yet, I opposed Virginia's marriage amendment.
The Republican base does not hate gays. I know that base. Hell, I AM that base.
Are there hypocrites in my party? No more than there are in yours.
H.L., keep your chin up. Your stand on principles against the more whacko side of your party is to be commended.
Remember all that "business" about Republicans voting for Obama?? Hmmm, haven't heard that meme lately!
How many extremely loyal, far-right Republicans, do you suppose, would actually vote for Hillary Clinton? Come on HL, you know Hillary is Rush Limbaugh's favorite lady.
Talk about being naive!! You really think they actually went to the caucuses, suffered the vitriol of Obamazoids and voted for Hillary.
Remember, were it not for the caucuses where Republicans DEFINITELY voted, Hillary would be the Dem nominee.
Who got played??
Yeah, HL, who did get "played"?
As to civil unions, political ideas and considerations have nothing to do with hate either.
There is much to be said in favor of civil unions, as well as many legitimate arguments against. Time nor space allow a full discussion on these merits, and I'm sure H.L. would prefer that I not clutter up her comments doing so.
If your mind is so small that it can only be decided on the merits of emotion, again, perhaps we would all prefer that you not be allowed to vote.
BTW - How many in your Pentecostal church, do you suppose, openly support civil unions for homosexuals?
And you know John, that emotion is a very small part of Republican decision making, but you leftists rely on it.
Ok, Alton, I'm waiting with baited breath: What "emotion is a very small part of Republican decision making"? Do tell.
