Guiliani Backs Gay Marriage Ban
Looks like the “socially liberal” Rudy Guiliani is now ready to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning marriage between same-sex couples.
Perkins: Giuliani supports marriage amendment

Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, told The Hill Saturday that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) would support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
Perkins said Giuliani told him in a private meeting that if the Defense of Marriage Act appeared to be failing or if multiple states began to legalize same-sex marriages, then he would support the constitutional amendment.
Does anyone else remember that when Guiliani was in the process of divorcing his second wife and preparing to marry his third, he lived for a time with a same-sex couple who offered him a home and support?
From the August 4, 2001 edition of the New York Times:
“Howard Koeppel, half of the gay couple that Giuliani lived with during his marital spat, said [Giuliani told] us that if they ever legalized gay marriages, we would be the first one he would do.”
Now, Guiliani is not only on record as saying that he believes that his friends did not deserve the right and responsibilities that he got with each of his three marriages, but that the relationship between his friends is so vile that a constitutional amendment is needed to guard against the possibility of them marrying.
Care to explain the flip-flop Rudy?
