A US Republican presidential candidate, the former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty has opened his mouth to spout more gay hate. The Republican front runner took a slice at gay marriage on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, show. No coincidence that this was the first day of marriage equality in New York.
The man defended his anti-gay marriage stance saying that gay couples’ unions are not equivalent to heterosexual marriage as well as recognition of gay marriage would damage society. “I don’t think all domestic relationships are the same as traditional marriage. Marriage between a man and a woman is something that should remain elevated socially, culturally, and practically, legally, morally in our society.” he states.
Mr Pawlenty, who said that marriage was about procreation and raising children, was pressed on whether he believes marriage equality would harm society, he said “I think society devalues traditional marriage by saying all other domestic relationships are the same as traditional marriage, you then dilute and devalue traditional marriage.”
Saying that gays are not as good as straight people and that we don’t deserve equality is the most abhorrent of the all this so called Christian’s outbursts to date.
