McCain on LGBT Issues: “A Big ZERO”

August 30, 2008 at 10:23 am 7 comments

Our friend Joe Sudbay of AmericaBlog spent a few minutes talking with Arizona State Representative Kyrsten Sinema about John McCain’s record on LGBT civil rights. Let’s just say that Rep. Sinema is not impressed.

Rep. Sinema helped to defeat the proposed anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment in Arizona in 2006.

McCain is on record as supporting the proposed anti-gay marriage amendments that will be on the ballot in Arizona, California and Florida.

Sen. Obama is on record as opposing each of these divisive and harmful anti-gay amendments.

    And there you have it: the choice between Barack and McCain couldn’t be any clearer than this.

    Blah, blah, blah…in Obama’s acceptance speech he did not mention any thing about Gay marriage, only that Gays & Lesbians should not be discriminated against.

    He is playing the LGBT into thinking he is supportive while at the same time not trying to piss off the Evangelical vote.

    D.A., like you would know anything about supporting LGBT people.

    Obama is light years ahead of McCain on supporting LGBT civil rights. McCain hasn’t meet a piece of pro-LGBT legislation that he didn’t oppose.

    Kiss McCain’s ass all you want, but don’t expect us to buy his or your drivel.

    D.A., I take it, then, that you believe “Gays and Lesbians” SHOULD be discriminated against?

    I think it’s funny that you drool over this man and instead of him saying, “We are going to live in an America where LGBT’s are allowed to get married.” But instead of saying that he merely mentions stopping discrimination. If he is the advocate he says he is and what Mr. Crawford has written about, then why didn’t he proclaim this? 4leslie, all I’m saying is, he had his opportunity to represent, but failed. Any other notion than that means that you, 4leslie, are willing for Obama to overlook the feelings of LGBT so he will not piss off the Evangelicals…yeah.

    Truth of the matter is, he’s telling everyone what they want to hear. As far as supporting LGBT people, Michael, you have no right to weakly attempt to judge me…my favorite Uncle is currently dying of AIDS and is an openly gay comic…one of my closer colleagues at work is named Beth, but was formally known as Ed…before you go judging someone because I am a PROUD Conservative, step back and realize, no understand, that not everyone is as judgmental as those members on the Left.

    You’re busting your head over something that LGBTs have already known for a long time, D.A. The fact that Obama is opposed to gay marriage has been known for years, and many gay people still decide to support him. It’s ridiculous how you’re acting all outraged about this, when you’re supporting a candidate who is even more blatantly discriminative towards gay people.

    I also think it’s funny that you’re railing against and judging people who have decided to vote for Senator Obama, while you’re whining about being judged as a conservative.

    You’re a hypocrite and all your posts are bullshit. The GOP is struggling for breath and the Democrats are in the right side of history right now, and all you can do is hang out in liberal sites spewing out your laughable shit for whomever will be stupid enough to buy whatever you’re selling.

    Cry more. And look more and more ridiculous. You don’t intimidate anyone here, no matter how obnoxious you try to be.

    Solina,

    In case you’re unaware, the Democrat Led House & Congress have an approval rating of 9%, sounds like they’re the party struggling for breath.

    As for Obama, I am far from outraged about him being unable to stammer out that deep down inside he doesn’t give a rat’s tail about the LGBT, as for supporting a candidate who is, as you say more blatantly discriminative towards Gays, if Obama opposes Gay marriage (as you said) and McCain does as well, how can you honestly say that one is more discriminative than the other…that would be like saying Johnny is gayer than Ricky…not going to cut it.

    As for my comments pertaining to the messenger attack by Michael Crawford, it was just that…stating that attacking the messenger doesn’t work & Crawford should be the first to know this.

    If I’m a hypocrite, please point it out…you can email me at da.slinkard@gmail.com, or you can go to my site…but please point it out verbatum, don’t just try and spew bile out….back it up.

    As for hanging out in Liberal areas, it cracks me up the IQ levels of some of your party.

    I look forward to some good wholesome debate on my site, that is if you can back it up…make sure your info is legit, remember attack the Message, not the Messenger…though I know it’s out of your party’s norm.
