Trump: ‘fine’ with same-sex marriage

First political promise broken …

From LifeSiteNews: That contradicts statements Trump made on the campaign trail supporting a reversal of Obergefell, and appealing to “faith” voters for whom the imposition of radically redefined marriage is a major issue. In February, leading up to the South Carolina GOP primary, Trump called Obergefell a “shocking decision” and told Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody that evangelicals could trust him to stand up for traditional marriage. Trump said:

I think they can trust me. They can trust me on traditional marriage…I was very much in favor of having the court rule that it goes to states and let the states decide. And that was a shocking decision for you and for me and for a lot of other people. But I was very much in favor of letting the states decide.

Prior to the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling, 31 states had passed amendments upholding natural marriage and barring recognition of genderless “marriage” in their respective states. All were negated by the high court ruling …

… and on shaky and contradictory grounds, as the liberal media note:

Again from LifeSiteNews: Even the strongly pro-LGBTQ Washington Post recognized the irony of Trump’s lax position on reversing the Court’s “gay marriage” ruling while voicing support for overturning Roe v. Wade—which, in tandem with a parallel case, Doe v. Bolton, legalized abortion-on-demand in the United States in 1973.
The Post headlined its article: “Trump says 17-month-old gay marriage ruling is ‘settled’ law—but 43-year-old abortion ruling isn’t.” The lead paragraph notes: “Donald Trump sent a message about his priorities to social conservatives Sunday on ‘60 Minutes’: On abortion, I’ll keep fighting. On gay marriage, not so much.”

US President-elect Donald Trump indicated that he would not question the legal acceptance of same-sex marriage, in his first interview since his election.

“It’s law,” Trump said in a “60 Minutes” television interview. “It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean, it’s done.”

Trump’s willingness to accept same-sex marriage contrasts with the official platform of his Republican Party, which had condemned the Supreme Court decisions that have required all states to recognize same-sex unions.

  1. Noooooooooooo! DJT isn’t going to defend marriage? Say it ain’t so, Joe! Like, he knows all about marriage, being married several times.

    Let’s review the deal we just made with something just this side of the devil. I mean, please don’t imagine we just elected a “social conservative,” or any version of a “conservative.” He got rid of HRC and Obama, and may even add a few good things. But homos, hey, they’re OK!

    Likewise, don’t be surprised when pro-life lands on the cutting floor:
