    What a (coverted) Morman ass is Chaffetz. I hope he has no LGBT offspring that have to suffer under his parenting perspective of SSM for HIS OWN CHILD!

    “You know, I’m no racist. I just happen to believe that God wants the races to be kept separate. I can’t tell you *why*. I just happen to believe it, and I’m not going to cave in to pressure from the media, my black neighbors, or anyone else to apply some critical thinking or maybe a little empathy to the issue.”

    Chaffetz – “I’d rather attend my own son’s funeral than his marriage to another man.”

    well, great. nice way to ensure any potentially-gay children you ever have will never think they can Come Out to you. blahhh.

    “I recognize the Democrats are in the majority, but I represent the majority of Americans on this issue.” He says, ignoring the many polls which show the majority approve of marriage equality. . .

    How very sad for his children. You are seeing here the raw materials of bigotry; he doesn’t consider himself a bigot but will tell you that he loves his children unconditionally, right up until he gets to the “but…”

  6. Jack M says

    So much for unconditional love! I wonder how he can look at himself in the mirror.

    His beliefs are of more importance to him than his own children. Too bad his beliefs can’t love him back or take care of him when he gets old.

    I actually prefer Chaffetz’s response. It shows he has the courage of his bigotted convictions. In the end people like him will advance the cause of equality for all. His church must be very proud……..his children, not so much.

    What an incredibly ulgy human being and he holds the position of Senator representing other people at the national level. Scary and SAD. Hopefully he loses his next election for the betterment of the USA.

    HE REPRESENTS THE MORMON THEOCRACY OF UTAH –
    Why bother to even reply to him?
    Remember, the morholes are on full court press to LOOK ACCEPTING, by encouraging (finally)good treatment of them. The goal is for them to all stay in the fold and marry heterosexually, so as not to mess up the family in the afterlife, and be isolated for all eternity (LMFAO)

    Love is in the comments again today. What if it goes “Civil Union?” Imagine the hissy fit. It’s so comforting to have Kiwi’s brillance to guide us through this uncertain period. Since Andy Towle prefers to be in hiding. Do you exist Towle?? Come out! — literally.

    I don’t want to discriminate against them, but I just happen to believe that Mormons shouldn’t be able to get married (to one or more people).

  12. BobN says

    I assume the “journalist” asking the questions was too dim to immediately turn around and ask, “So that means you support anti-discrimination laws for gay people, right?”

  13. Gry says

    His father is Gay Rights advocate/author John Chaffetz, so it doesn’t seem like a huge leap to surmise that he’s using public policy and the law to vent his familial resentments.

    “I hate you, Daddy!”

  14. MiddleoftheRoader says

    This guy is not irrelevant because he’s considered a rising star in the Republican party. He is smart, clever and dangerous – knowing how to place right-wing items into House legislation.

    When the Republican party loses the House majority, he may become (almost) irrelevant. He is an ideologue on most issues. The only question is whether, in 20 years, he will be more like George Wallace who recanted his segregationist views (whether he really believed that or not, who knows) or more like Bull Connor (who died while still a racist).

  15. woodroad34d says

    Not allowing your gay child to be married-to have all the rights, privileges, and community–to/with another person, is not loving that child with all your heart. What a liar…someone totally unclear on the concept of love. What a dreg.

  16. A says

    Chaffetz is gay. It is a fairly well circulated rumor in Utah political circles that he is gay, and even had a boyfriend in college at BYU. The man wouldn’t embrace a gay child, because he’s yet to embrace his own sexuality – I suspect.

  17. Bob says

    To those posted that the a-hole is Gay:
    Cool, probably true. He moved to U-hole to attend BYU, and later converted to mormonity, probably in attempt to control his “affliction of same-sex attraction”, as they called it then.
    Now the morhole policy is
    “TREAT GAYS WELL, SO OUR GAY KIDS WILL STAY IN THE FAMILY AND MARRY IN THE TEMPLES, PUTTING GOD AHEAD OF THE TEMPTATION TO SIN”
    — in other words, give ’em the chance to choose fitting in versus fitting the way God made them

  18. andrew says

    It is so funny when Mormons talk about their current beliefs about marriage. They only officially abandoned polygamy when the U S Congress made that a condition for Utah’s entrance into the Union. In adandoning polygymy they abandoned Yahweh’s marriage plans for humanity. If you read the bible, you will see that he clearly intended for men to have many wives and concubines. What is a bible thumper to do?
