The Donald comes out against SSM


On Gretawire:

Asked about his positions on social issues by Greta Van Susteren, Trump said he doesn't support abortion rights or gay marriage, insisting he's in favor of "almost all conservative principles."

Trump entered into the gay marriage fray in 2009, when he defended Carrie Prejean's stated opposition to gay marriage. Trump, who owns the Miss USA pageant, defended Prejean for speaking out, comparing her views on gay marriage to President Barack Obama's.

    Greta should've asked The Donald what constitutional justification he could offer for denying law-abiding, taxpaying Gay couples the same legal benefits, protections, and responsibilities that Straight couples have always taken for granted. But I'm not surprised she DIDN'T ask, as it would have caused the Fox News audience to go into conniptions.

    Try the fact that straight couples can have a child unintentionally and/or accidentally. That is why these benifits have been established, to make it easier for them to have and raise children. Gay couples never find themselves in such a situation.

    The donald made his point very clear. Unlike those scary movie stars in hollywierd who rather lie and say they support ssm marriage so thier careers wont take a nose dive.when they really thinks its stomach turning. just like gay people dont want straight pushing thier lifestyle on them we straights dont want the gys agenda lifestyle force on us.You seem bitter.

    If you would read the bible you would see that it is wrong for any reason to be an a homosexual relationship...there is not gray area-it only says it is wrong per GOD

    Chuck, who says that you're law-abiding when the law says that marriage is between one man and one woman? You can couple with whomever you want but when you try to dictate to society that you want the institution of marriage to change its whole meaning, then you've got a problem there. You see it isn't the same legal benefits, it is different.

    CNY: "Try the fact that straight couples can have a child unintentionally and/or accidentally. "

    Or even on purpose. Without any outside intervention.

    There is a WORLD of difference between men and women -- a matter of LIFE and death that same-sex couples (regardless of any so-called "orientation") can even imitate.

    Separate is never equal. Mother Nature is hardly a bigot.

    Hey Chuck you never were law abiding in the first place. If you had obeyed the marriage law in the first place you would be able to receive the benefits. There is no civil right for anyone to disobey the law in the first place and then claim you were denied your rights as a tax payingcitizen.
    Hey Chuck: I want to go to the library like everybody else. I am a tax paying citizen. I am not allowed because I did not have shoes on. Was my right to use the library like every other tax paying citizen denied or did I actually have the right to go to the library if only I had worn shoes and obeyed the law like everybody else.
