Not that this is a huge news flash or anything, but the Protect Marriage Campaign, who are sponsoring the ballot initiative to place a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage before California voters in November, said yesterday that they had received an email from John McCain backing their cause.
Said McCain’s email: “I support the efforts of the people of California to recognize marriage as a unique institution between a man and a woman, just as we did in my home state of Arizona. I do not believe judges should be making these decisions.”
If you’ll remember, back in 2006, when MCCain appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthew, he said: “I think gay marriage should be allowed if there’s a ceremony kind of thing if you want to call it that. I don’t have any problem with that…” and then went on to say “I think private ceremonies are fine. I do not think gay marriage should be legal.”
