Prop 8 Supporter Meg Whitman Wants Same-Sex Marriages Recognized

Former eBay CEO and prospective candidate for California governor Meg Whitman wants it both ways on same-sex marriage:

Whitman"Explaining her support for Proposition 8, the November measure that banned same-sex marriage, she called it a 'matter of personal conscience and my faith.' But Whitman, a Presbyterian who supports gay civil unions, said the thousands of same-sex marriages that took place last year before the ban should be legally recognized -- a sentiment opposed by many Proposition 8 backers. Moreover, she said, gay and lesbian couples should be able to adopt children."

Too bad you can't believe in banning them and recognizing them at the same time.

  1. Guys -

    She won't be a problem. She crumbled into dust seconds after that beam of sunlight touched her.

  2. Let me guess, she has lots of gay friends, right? Just another "I'll say anything" politician with no actual conviction.

  4. Look, she supports gay adoption and civil unions. Her view is identical to Obama's and Hillary's. Yet this blog clearly doesn't consider Obama and Clinton to be homophobic, do they? I hate Republicans as much as the next decent person, but I think we should concentrate on fighting the people that really, really DO hate us and Meg Whitman is very obviously someone who does NOT hate us.

  5. Somebody should ask her about all the Religions that Marry Gay Couples (How many of the 18,000 SSM's were preformed by Gay-friendly places of worship?) and if she believes it's okay to put one Religion over another in the Constitution.....

  6. I agree with Citizengeek about focusing on the people that really do hate us, though. Just venting frustration.

  7. "Look, she supports gay adoption and civil unions. Her view is identical to Obama's and Hillary's."

    Her view is not identical if she supported Prop 8. Obama was opposed to it. They both are wrong on marriage, and both are wrong to use their religious beliefs as an excuse for not supporting civil marriage equality. Compared to many Republicans, her views are enlightened, but they still should be challenged.
