I am not/am a raging liberal/am not are so am not. Stop it! Anyway, this morning John Boehner said that he could not support gay marriages because his church, the Roman Catholic Church, was against it:
Listen, I believe marriage is a union between one man and one woman. It’s what I grew up with, it’s what i belive, it’s what my church teaches me and I can’t imagine that position would ever change.
But, what if it did?
No buscamos discriminar a las uniones de personas del mismo sexo. No tenemos una mirada fanática. Lo que estamos pidiendo es que se respeten las leyes. …Creemos que hay que plantear un proyecto de unión civil más completo del que existe, pero no de matrimonio.
We are not searching to discriminate against same-sex unions. We don’t have a fanatic vision. What we are asking is that the laws are respected. We believe that we must propose more comprehensive civil union [rights] than currently exist, but not [gay] marriage
This is from Pope Francis’s new biographer, Sergio Rubin, who has the first authorized biography due out shortly.
So, what if this new pope urged the Catholic Church to allow for civil unions? Or work for a non-discriminatory system of laws? Would Speaker Boehner listen? Would he then stop wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on this issue and wage a war against real social issues such as poverty?
The Speaker is quick to pin his position on gay marriage to the Church, but what about his other issues? Such as gun control and health care for all?
Anyway, there you go.
You are so a raging liberal, Joel.
Seriously, dude, stop.
