Fred Thompson, (who STILL hasn't officially announced he's running...maybe because he only managed to raise $3 Million dollars?! I think Dennis Kucinich could pull in that tiny amount doing a striptease on the steps of Congress) has finally opened up his big mouth and told us what he wants to do when-if he's our next President...and man does it sound AWESOME!!!
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Likely Republican White House hopeful Fred Thompson told CNN Friday that he would push for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage and would work to overturn Roe v. Wade if elected president.
“I don’t think that one state ought to be able to pass a law requiring gay marriage or allowing gay marriage and have another state be required to follow along,” Thompson told CNN’s John King in an interview Friday.
Thompson added that the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion “was bad law and bad medicine.”
All he needed to add was, "Kick out the Mexicans!" and he'd be all set! I guess he needs to save something for when he officially enters the race.
I just checked my email and received this:
Hey, this is Jon Henke. I'm working with Fred Thompson, and saw your post referencing CNN's report on the gay marriage question.
I'm afraid CNN has mischaracterized Thompson's comment. They've since changed their article.
For the record, the Thompson camp has officially noted that "Fred Thompson does not support a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage." He supports the rights of States to choose their marriage law for themselves.
The Thompson camp just issued this statement:
In an interview with CNN today, former Senator Fred Thompson’s position on constitutional amendments concerning gay marriage was unclear.
Thompson believes that states should be able to adopt their own laws on marriage consistent with the views of their citizens.
He does not believe that one state should be able to impose its marriage laws on other states, or that activist judges should construe the constitution to require that.
If necessary, he would support a constitutional amendment prohibiting states from imposing their laws on marriage on other states.
Fred Thompson does not support a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
