Republican Rep Gives Celebratory Speech At Gay Son’s Wedding After Voting Against Same-Sex Marriage Bill

This insufferable bastard!   Hey my son is gay and found someone to marry, he can have marriage equality, but not your son or daughter they don’t have that right.   My daughter needs an abortion, she can have one but not you or yours, they don’t have that right.   If it is good for his son, and he is as happy for his son as he claims, vote for the law to protect it nationwide.    Hugs

“First of all, obviously, we hope right from the beginning, it’s all about having a healthy child. But it’s about being healthy. It’s about them being healthy. We hope for safety. We’re hoping that they find their way, find opportunity, they find inspiration.

“And as they grow and as they get a little older, we also hope and pray they’re going to find that one true love so that they have the opportunity to experience that: Someone to grow old with.

“So we’re just really thankful that you’re here. It actually goes beyond that, as parents. We love it when they find their one true love, especially when they become a part of our families then. That’s what we’re rooting for.

“We’ve been fortunate with three sons, and [REDACTED]’s done a great job of adding to the family. Every kid showed up through cesarean section so it wasn’t all pleasant, right! So this has been a really good experience, especially for Penny, to have a new son enter the family!

“So we’re just blessed, and we just want to say thank you to everyone here as part of the celebration.” – GOP Rep. Glenn Thompson, speaking at the wedding of his gay son after voting against codifying same-sex marriage.

    1. Hello Ali. Unless the son and his husband are brainwashed right wingers, they have to feel dear old dad betrayed them. That is like saying it is OK for us to treat the black help like people but the law shouldn’t protect all black workers. These people think nothing of the harm a state by state system would cause to gay people trying to live as a married couple. Remember the days when the right wing claimed that the gays were too promiscuous and had far too many partners, yet they fight against gay people having marriage as a couple. The truth is it comes down to they don’t want gay people around at all. Brian brown keeps claiming the Republicans are ignoring the will of the people by voting to protect marriage equality, but he seems to forget far more people want to save marriage equality than want it destroyed.
