I’ve openly questioned Fred Thompson’s positions on social issues before, pointing to past statements on abortion as evidence that he may not be any more Conservative than Giuliani on said issues, well, now I know he is no better than Giuliani. Apparently, although he is “personally opposed” to Gay Marriage, he would have no problem allowing states to legalize it. He also attacked the GOP for trying to protect the life of Terry Schiavo – the Florida woman who died after days of being starved of food and water when her husband had her feeding tube removed.
In case anyone hasn’t listened to Mitt Romney on the issue of Gay Marriage (after being governor of MA – where the Supreme Court imposed the institution), its not just about allowing two people to “marry” – it has numerous other unintended consequences. After Gay Marriage was made legal in Massachusetts, the Catholic Church could no longer run an adoption service – because it would only place children in homes with both a mother and a father.
Let me make it completely clear: Fred Thompson is not a Social Conservative, and any Republicans who thought he was needs to think twice before supporting him.
