Republicans scared in not wanting to be seen as too anti-gay
"There is no need to talk about Billy wanting to marry a goat", are the words of the Missouri legislator, Dwight Scharnhorst (Republican). You might ask, what is this guy talking about? Well, to people like him, two people of the same sex marrying, is like marrying farm animals. Actually, I've debated far rightwing talk show hosts who actually use this argument on air. Seriously.
With people like this in the GOP, is it any wonder that Mitt Romney does not want average voters to know about his $10,000 donation to ban same sex marriages, throughout the U.S?
Indeed, you notice how Republican legislators aren't making much of a deal out of President Obama's endorsement of same sex marriages? That is because in 2012, at least half the voters are opposed to them on this issue. If President Clinton had come out for marriage equality in 1996 when less than 30% of the public at that time supporting it, they would have been making three hour speeches every day attacking Clinton and gays.
President Obama still hasn't issued an executive order banning discrimination against LGBT workers who work for a federal contractor. What is President Obama waiting for exactly? He is so much better than Romney on gay rights, but why hasn't he issued this order?
After all, there is no right to be a federal contractor. If they want to work on federal contracts, paid in part by gay taxpayers, they have no reason to object. You can contact President Obama, here on this issue. Or, in ending federal raids of medical marijuana facilities, for that matter.
Finally, if you want to help out the Obama 2012 Campaign, and you support gay rights, you can order some cool clothing and other stuff from this campaign site.
