Romney: I am not intolerant of gays!

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Thursday that his opposition to same-sex marriage should not be interpreted as intolerance of gays, who served in his administration when he was Massachusetts governor.

In a brief interview with The Associated Press, Romney elaborated on comments he made during a campaign event dubbed "Ask Mitt Anything" in which an audience member questioned whether pastors should preach that homosexuality is a sin. Romney said the government shouldn't tell pastors what they can say.

Flip-flop factor:

Romney's record on gay rights has drawn scrutiny - and criticism that he changes with the political winds. In a 1994 bid against Sen. Edward Kennedy, Romney argued that he would be a better champion of gay rights than the Democrat. In 2003, after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that same-sex couples could wed in the state, Romney pushed for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

He noted that one of his Cabinet members was gay and that he appointed gays to positions of responsibility in his administration.

I oppose discrimination against gay people," Romney said. "I am not anti-gay. I know there are some Republicans, or some people in the country who are looking for someone who is anti-gay and that's not me."

He said he is opposed to gay marriage because it's not in the best interest of children.

Justice MH's final thoughts: Romney is going have to come up with a better argument than the tired old "children" argument. Romney save it, trying to roll back civil rights doesn't sound like open arms of tolerance and love to me. Romney has ask Congress to pass a federal marriage amendment, and urge that other LGBT legislation be defeated. Mitt just stop bull sh*tting us! No Deal! Thanks for nothing!
This shows he's only out to get votes from the religious "wrong" and conservatives. Good Luck with the hypocrites, y'all deserve one another!

I praise Romney efforts to preserve the morals of our nation...the little we have left. The gay community will surely seek to drag America down in the mud to accept their wicked and evil works...just plain sad.

@Captian: I knew you were not so bright, and you prove it with every comment!

Morals of our nation? Keep your moral code, and religion[s] moral codes to yourself!

The sad one is YOU! You twist wicked and evil works to your own twisted, confuse, self-denial, self-loathing, and internalized homophobic HOMO mind!

Romeny is a undercovered gay rights supporter! Praise that!

I find that this election will test who is really apt for defending America or who is unable and unfit to lead us through the next four years to maintain sustainability and morality. Bush did a good job during this volitle time and remain steadfast...more than any President I have seen. At least you haven't heard any rumors of Bush getting oral sex like Clinton.

@Captian: Please! If Clinton wanted some oral than that's his PERSONAL private business! The Republican congress's attack on him was a joke! Bush is the worst president, and i support his impeachment!

The next President has to be someone who's going to use their power carefullly[unlike Bush]. This person has to defend and uphold the U.S Constitution, and it's principles!

Yes...principles that originated from the bible. Oh how a full circle is a wonderful wheel.

@Captian: Sorry Capt but our principles don't come from any holy book. Get over it!
