To heck with all of the hee-ing and haw-ing
.
Did Romney sign this? OR is this a forgery typed out by some underhanded slimeball at NOM's terrorist headquarters?

.
It is neither on Romney stationary nor National Organization for Marriage (NOM) stationary
.
so it looks like a forgery to me
.
Someone needs to print this out and ask Romney if he signed it; to his *FACE*; IN PERSON

As a gay man I love it when right wingers get gay baited in a way which would be clearly homophobic if done by Republicans to Democrats.

It makes me laugh so hard because it's so right for being wrong.

OK, we get it that Romney now states he was in favor of equality for LGBT as individuals, but did not intend for that to include gay marriage itself. But I just wish SOMEONE would pin him down and ask him the following questions at some point during this campaign:

1. Do you believe the FEDERAL government should recognize gay relationships of any sort (even if not 'marriages'), as they now recognize heterosexual unions?

2. If YES, how do you propose to ensure the kind of LGBT equality you now claim to support, in matters such as immigration, social security, and employment benefits?

3. If NO, how do you propose to ensure the kind of LGBT equality you now claim to support, in matters such as immigration, social security, and employment benefits?

4. Do you believe that single gay parents who have custody of their own biological children deserve to be legally recognized as families, the same as heterosexuals in that position?

5, If YES, do you believe that both -- homosexual and heterosexual single parents -- have the right to elicit the help of a worthy step-parent to help raise their children?

6. Which of the two sets of parents should/should not enjoy the protection of federal law, and why/why not?

7. What form of federal law would you support to protect such families' access to survivor's social security benefits, tax benefits, etc.?

None of that is necessary - although it might be nice to see him squirm and equivocate. Romney has signed the "Personhood" pledge, which commits him to outlawing any form of birth control which acts after the formation of the zygote.

This means the Pill. Not the morning after pill, but the Pill, the most popular and effective form of birth control in the country.

We know the answers to your questions. At least until Romney runs again someplace where the electorate is liberal....

No, my point is that his position on LGBT 'rights' contradicts itself. Whatever one's position on gay marriage, it is almost impossible to support ANY equal rights for individuals without recognizing that some of them will have longtime companions (whatever you choose to call it). To deny that reality is to deny their humanity itself -- which is not equal treatment when you treat other citizens as humans.

The question of the day is: Is Romney made of plastic or rubber?

1). He is so fake he makes plasic look real.

or

2). He flip-flops so much, he must be made of rubber.

Vote for #1 or 2, but not for him.

If you're going to go off topic you could at least have the minimal presence of mind to say eight or nine words about the subject at this link you're posting.
