Scott Walker spent many Wisconsin tax dollars and man hours fighting the legalization of gay marriage equality. Now that the Supreme Court has finally made it legal, Scott Walker is to intimidated to tell us how he really feels about marriage equality!
"It really doesn't matter what I think now," Walker said, as quoted by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "It's in the constitution."
"No," he said, as quoted by the Journal-Sentinel. "I'm just not stating one at all."
Mr. Walker does not want to lose any of the LGBTQ vote in a close election so he wisely chooses not to articulate his far right extremist views. However, as May Angelou told us "when people tell us who they are, we should listen".
It was his Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch who said:
“This is a slippery slope,” Kleefisch said. “In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs?And it was republican Role Model ducky Phil Robertson, who said this:
“This is ridiculous,” continued Kleefisch. “And biblically, again, I’m going to go right back to my fundamental Christian beliefs marriage is between one man and one woman.”
What, in your mind, is sinful?Ducky even speaks this silliness from the pulpit:
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
During Phil’s darkest days, in the early 1970s, he had to flee the state of Arkansas after he badly beat up a bar owner and the guy’s wife. Kay Robertson persuaded the bar owner not to press charges in exchange for most of the Robertsons’ life savings. (“A hefty price,” he notes in his memoir.) I ask Phil if he ever repented for that, as he wants America to repent—if he ever tracked down the bar owner and his wife to apologize for the assault. He shakes his head.
“I didn’t dredge anything back up. I just put it behind me.”
Asked how voters might judge governors who bid for the presidency, the Wisconsinite replied, “Governors should be defined not just by what they do and say, but who they surround themselves with, making sure to have the smartest person for a particular task or to head a specific agency. They should be judged on that basis and who they take advice from.”
