Paul Ryan Tells 'Focus on the Family' He and Romney Will Block Equality for Gay People

Right Wing Watch has posted audio of a pledge from Paul Ryan to Focus on the Family president Jim Daly that the Romney-Ryan administration will fight gay equality.

P_ryanSays Ryan when asked his thoughts about marriage:

It’s the foundation for society and for family for thousands of years. First of all, Mitt Romney and I — I’ll just say it, it’s worth repeating — we believe marriage is between one man and one woman, that’s number one. Number two, you know where I come from we had one of those amendments in Wisconsin, I was a big supporter of it and we passed it like you say, where it’s put on the ballot it passes. The second point is, President Obama gave up defending the Defense of Marriage Act in the courts, I mean, not only is this decision to abandon this law the wrong decision, it passed in a bipartisan manner, it is very troubling because it undermines not only traditional marriage but it contradicts our system of government. It’s not the president’s job to pick and choose which laws he likes. A Romney administration will protect traditional marriage and the rule of law and we will provide the Defense of Marriage Act the proper defense in the courts that it deserves.

Not a surprise, obviously. Just a reminder.

  3. Is Ryan talking about the same Mitt Romney who, not too many years ago, told the people of Mass. that he would be a better friend to gays in the Senate than Sen Ted Kennedy, who just happened to be the leading champion of gay rights in the U.S.Senate?

  5. @Andrew: Are you truly surprised that Romney flip-flops over several years? He can't even keep consistent on a policy within a few weeks without flip-flopping. Worse, just listen to his campaign team who within hours will explain away something problematic.

  6. Thanks for the reminder. Just make sure that the wine-swilling Log Cabinettes and the tweaked-out GoProudGirls get the memo.

  7. I'm STILL trying to see what is so physically attractive about him? He is what I called "average at best", he features are proportional but that doesn't equate to attractive or even sexy.

    Oh yeah, that is why the dumb yestergays and sadist-bisexuals whom like him are looking for something in decent looking from a group of old and ugly men...

  8. Ok so none of us like what Romney/Ryan have to say about gay marriage or many other things for that matter but to call these people stupid or mindless is a mistake...it puts people in the mindset that their ilk is not a real threat to us which is absolutely not the case...

  9. I blame religion for the gap in reason that allows an otherwise rational mind to oppose equality for gays. Gays not supporting Romney/Ryan makes sense. But how well does supporting democrats make either? Obama can SAY he supports equal rights, but what does he really do about it? If gays would support a party dedicated to equality and freedom like Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, we could end this fraudulent two party system that is bankrupting the country.

  10. How SAD, he is trying to prevent progress just to get elected.
