Romney, of course, opposes marriage equality. Romney supports DOMA. Romney has pledged to write anti-gay bigotry into the U.S. Constitution. Romney opposed the repeal of DADT. Romney opposes the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Romney opposes adoptions by same-sex couples.
Chris Geidner reports on how divided GOProud’s seven-member board was; two gay members voted against the endorsement and one straight member abstained. All I’d like to point out is that we are discussing the views of seven people in a living room. By even mentioning this tiny cadre, we give them far more importance or interest than they even faintly deserve. They’re the Bill Donohue of the gays: a few angry guys with a Twitter feed, signifying nothing.
