    Arrogant bastard. My household does not rate as being a “family” in this SOBs eyes?! I am sick and goddamn tired of being rated a last class citizen by bastards that have no idea what a true loving family is. These are the lost son’s of bitches. And in the name of god, at that. Righteous hypocrisy.

    Wow. Look at the jump being made from just one statement. He hopes to encourage young people to get married before having kids because it provides an advantage.

    Statistically kids in a household with a mom and a dad do much better in their lives than in single parent households. I’m not sure he meant anything at all against gay people with this remark. To draw those conclusions is obviously just those on the left trying to score points. If you can’t see him saying he would encourage people to get married before having kids as anything other than an attack on gay people, you seriously need to stop being a knee jerk reactionary liberal. Not every position of the Republican party nor every word coming out of their mouths is an attack on gays.

    Just waiting for either Josh or Matt Romney to come out of the closet. Then what will Mitt have to say? Could be one of the other boys, but they just aren’t cute enough to be gay! Karma Mitt!

    I’m actually afraid that he will win the election in November. And I do not even live in the U.S. But what it is certain is that the U.S. will go back to how it was in 1940, and it’s a scary thought, especially for women and gay people.

    They call U.S. the country with freedom. But it is not true, they are behind so many other Western countries when it comes to rights for women, civil rights, etc. It is intended as general criticism directed at Republicans and people who vote for them. I can not understand that women and LGBT people can vote on them at all.

    If we do not all have equal rights. what do all the other things mean then. Nothing, nothing at all

    TIM IN MT

    “The Politicker reached out to the Romney campaign to see whether they felt a child could equally benefit from the guidance provided by a gay couple. Ryan Williams, a spokesman for Mr. Romney, said it is the candidate’s long held belief children are better off with straight parents.”

    This isn’t an attack on gays?

    Try reading the whole article before commenting.

    Tim, did you not read the second half of this article where he does attack gay families, or are you being another willfully blind GOProud quisling?

  7. LiamB says

    Actually Tim, he HAS stated that gays are not as good parents as straights in the past. he also has openly stated that gays don’t deserve any protections, nor the right to relationships, nor the right to serve in any part of society. I am pretty damned sure he meant only straight parents. The fact he signed NOM’s pledge pretty much proves that, even without his numerous statements.

  8. nick says

    What upsets me the most is the simple fact that all these straight people get pregnant, have kids, and then give them up for adoption. Gay couple then adopt these wonderful kids and give them great homes. Republicans should be thanking the gays for taking care of their unwanted kids or just stop having kids–but wait–Republicans do not want women to use birth control.

  9. Bill S. says

    I agree with the sentiment that the *ideal* situation is for a child to be raised by his or her biological mother and father, who are happily married and are competent parents. This is why I’m against anonymous sperm donation and surrogacy. But homosexual parents are just as capable of parenting as heterosexual ones and should have equal access to adoption when this ideal situation is not upheld.

    And of course, allowing same-sex couples to marry is not going to create more families headed by non-biological parents. Gay couples, upon getting married, are not going to have permission to sneak into straight family’s homes and steal their biological children. But I’m preaching to the choir.

  10. GeorgeM says

    I think Tim’s the newest troll, he’ll say he’s gay and just a republican. He’s posting on all threads. He and markus can vote for him. When he screws us gays I hope they stand in line

  11. Bart says

    Then all those bigotted couples better get busy adopting all the children in foster care. Wait, what? You mean they don’t.

    All children need is parents who love them. Who teach them right from wrong, you know, like Sarah Palin did with her daughter. Okay, scratch that…that didn’t work out so well. And maybe all the parents should stay together through the tough times like Newt and his wife..wives…couple wives…

    And all those good religious people who don’t really seem to know much about Jesus because Jesus DIDN’T get married or have a family (at least according to that history book the Bible.) He created his family with his apostles and friends…you know, just like many, uhm, gay families.

    And Mitt should realize that his crazy ass religion is the most repressed and has nothing to do with the “faith” of the people in that room, nor freedom.

    Bottom line…it’s one big f-ing joke.

  12. David says

    Why do these reporters never ask the question “Is that Mr. Romney’s opinion or is it a fact?” Please make them back up these ridiculous statements or expose them as nonsense.

  13. NY2.0 says

    You can always count on some gay republicans such as Tim, Markus, Lincolnlounge, and Rick to come on here and defend this phony man that will sell his wife if it means getting to the WH.

    Mitt Romney is as fifthy as it gets.

  14. Simon says

    Exposing bigotry with the bible :

    Hatred is the greatest sin which goes against the greatest commandments of Christ. In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, Christ has clearly mentioned that the way to have eternal life for his followers is through his commandments to love God and to love your neighbor as yourself. He has mentioned that those laws are above all other biblical laws of any other prophets.

    Homophobes promoting hatred are antiChrist who do not believe or pretend to believe in Jesus Christ but do not acknowledge Christ’s commandments to love God and to love thy neighbor as thyself, to be the highest of all biblical laws. The antiChrist, like the devil, is a master of quoting biblical verses except those 2 top commandments of love from Christ, they avoid using Christ’s name but use other names, even ‘God’, to bring all sort of biblical verses or ‘facts’, to lie and to prove their justification to hate. AntiChrist deceive people that those 2 commandments of love were not above all laws for Christians, and they are around in many organizations pretending to be of ‘religious’ faith.

    The issue of homosexuality, same sex marriage and many other issues (sexual/non sexual) are different forms of a test of the Christian faith on that choice of who they really believe in the end, to love (Christ and His greatest commandments) or to hate (succumb to temptation of verses NOT from Christ’s greatest commandments to justify their hatred).

    “If you can’t see him saying he would encourage people to get married before having kids as anything other than an attack on gay people, you seriously need to stop being a knee jerk reactionary liberal.”

    Only if knee jerk reactionary liberal is the same as sane. Because Mitt Romney not only does not support letting gay couples have the freedom to marry (so, you know, they could be married parents with kids) but he supports a constitutional amendment that would undo all the marriages of gay couples, including those with kids. Which kind of makes getting married before you have kids impossible in a Romney presidency. And, as others have pointed out, his statement was an attack on gay people, as is obvious to those capable of reading. I guess we can expect the trolls to be out in full force till Nov!

  16. jason says

    What is wrong with what Romney said? If Andy Towle thinks it’s wrong, he’s totally misguided.

    Besides, Romney didn’t say anything against gay people. Your spin fails, Andy.

  17. says

    @Jason: Saying it’s important to get married before having children while also supporting a constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from ever marrying is anti-gay to anyone with a single brain cell in their head. It’s no coincidence he was talking to the “Faith and Freedom” coalition. (When Faith and Freedom are in the same coalition title, you know how misnamed and anti-gay the coalition truly is.) So, no, Andy was not misguided in thinking that what Romney said was wrong. The spin is from within the Romney apologists.

  18. says

    These battle lines are drawn. No self respecting gay can vote for this piece of bigoted Mormon $hit……..

    And all the moralising twisted rhetotic on this page won’t change that. Gays are target of these bigots. let’s act accordingly.

  19. Todd says

    I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney…at all. But…I think its a stretch to say that he’s saying children are better off with heterosexual parents. I wouldn’t put it past him, but I don’t think it is a fair assessment of what he said in the clip.

  20. says

    “…in their lives going forward.” How could it possibly be “in their lives going backward”? You have to go forward. Why does he use so many extra, unnecessary words? Probably as fillers since he has always very little to say that is substantial.

  21. says

    Mitt once again tells America that he wants one of his children to end their lives. Oh Mittens, you’ve got a gaggle of homos for children, how many do you want to keep?

    And yeah, there will be “gay republican” trolls coming on here to say “no, that’s not what he meant!”

    forgive their confusion. they also mistake their parent’s statements of “Stop embarrassing us in front of the neighbors you disgusting f@ggot” as “i love you, would you like to have some tea?” so they’re a rather confused bunch.

  22. Rick says

    The comments in this thread just demonstrate how the hysteria and dishonesty of the Far Left damage the gay movement. (Thank you TIM IN MT and BILL S and JASON for being voices of reason).

    Apparently all Romney said was that the best environment for a child to be raised in was with his biological father and mother, a statement that hardly any reasonable person would disagree with.

    But the Far Left automatons try to turn it into a homophobic comment by misinterpreting it, then proceed to build an entire hysteria-based horror-show-scenario on what Romney would do as President (“he would take us back to 1940!”) around it……and slam anybody who challenges such hysteria by attacking them as “trolls” and “self-loathing closet cases”.

    I really wonder whether some of you people even realize how much credibility we lose when the general public is exposed to such nonsense. The gay Far Left is every bit as kooky as the “Christian” Far Right and it is only the extremism of the former that continues to make the latter viable.

  23. Andy Panda says

    Why do we continue to post this uninformed baloney on our websites. I know better and I am not interested in reading what Mitt Romney says about parenting. It just depresses me.

  24. BobN says

    Let’s stop lying to ourselves. There’s just no question that when it comes to children’s lives, IT IS IDEAL that the kids have Canadian parents.

  25. anon says

    Considering the prevalence of grey/white hair in that crowd, the issue is tracking generationally in a pro-gay direction. I’d hardly expect him to say anything else to this crowd, but if he’s having a problem still with the evangelical base, as indicated by his need to speak to them constantly, then he must be behind in internal polls for the fall. We won’t know how bad this is until he makes his VP choice.

  26. Caliban says

    Idiots like Romney always trot out some “best case scenario” in which mom and dad have 2.5 kids, mom stays at home and takes care of them (when she’s not busy with “dressage” and has a housekeeper), they never divorce and still love each other, and they are both devoted to their kids and involved in their lives, aren’t verbally, spiritually, physically, or sexually abusive. Then they use the blanket term “heterosexual parents” to describe that scenario as if it’s the norm.

    But how often is that true? Not even half the time. Some people even raise their kids in religious cults like the LDS and brainwash them!

    The biggest difference between straight and gay parents is that if a gay person has children they probably had to work like hell to get them, go through expensive and onerous adoption or surrogacy procedures. Many children of straight parents are born merely because pregnancy is an unfortunate side-effect of sex and they neither want or are prepared for the responsibility.

  27. ChristopherM says

    “Ryan Williams, a spokesman for Mr. Romney, said it is the candidate’s long held belief children are better off with straight parents.”

    Rick, if you are a gay man and seriously don’t see what is wrong with Romney, you are either deeply disturbed or completely retarded.
