Fred Thompson: No Civil Unions

October 30, 2007 at 6:00 am Leave a comment

Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson continued the GOP tradition of opposition to LGBT civil rights at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Monday.

Edward Paul, an employee of the Delta Dental Plans Association, asked the question Monday but had trouble being understood.

”I’m proud to say that in January 2008, New Hampshire has passed a law facilitating civil unions here…. What is your belief for federal civil unions to be passed?” Paul asked.

”Soviet Union?” Thompson responded.

”No, civil unions,” Paul said.

”Oh. No, I would not be in support of that,” Thompson said.

Paul said he wasn’t surprised, or impressed.

”I think he needs to do more homework on whatever state he’s in, and I don’t think he did on that question,” said Paul. He said he is a registered independent who plans to vote in the Democratic presidential primary.
