Jenny Sanford: “Gay marriage wrecked my family” | theDiscust

Quote:
Of course I’m not saying that Mark is gay,” Sanford said, “but he may as well be. The moral decay in this country has claimed another victim and this time it was my family. Our marriage was perfect until these laws started passing around the country. Clearly the slow dissolution of the sanctity of marriage in America seeped into Mark’s psyche until he no longer felt compelled to abide by our vows.”

Social conservatives were quick to show their support for the first lady’s statement.

“It’s finally happened,” said Rush Limbaugh, conservative radio personality. “America, I’ve been warning you for years that gay marriage would destroy the American family and look… there they are, a husband, wife, and four children — destroyed. When is this going to stop America? When will the liberals be satisfied? When all the marriages break up? This wasn’t Mark Sanford’s fault, this was Ted Kennedy’s fault. Sanford didn’t cheapen the value of marriage, he was victimized by the cheapening of marriage.”

Governor Sanford was unavailable for comment, but his office issued a statement saying “we’re not commenting on any of the first lady’s statements, but we like where she’s going with this.”
WHAT?! Your husband has been carrying on an affair with a woman in ARGENTINA and you want to blame gay marriage? I was sympathizing with this woman until she opened her mouth.

What happened to the party of PERSONAL responsibility? Instead of Sanford taking responsibility for HIS actions, you blame them on the actions of others? Homosexual marriages have no sanctity? What a ditz.

The truly sad thing is that people are going to listen to her because she's 'been wronged'. She's been in a crappy marriage so she must know what's she talking about.

This is YET ANOTHER PATHETIC show on behalf of social conservatives using homosexuality as the cause of all our ills. Jenny Sanford, Sally Kern, Fred Phelps... our country will be better off when you and your ilk vanish from the political landscape and the halls of power.

Post Re: Jenny Sanford: “Gay marriage wrecked my family”

I liked the start of Olbermann's reply: “Unless he was flying to Vermont with Lindsey Graham, gay marriage had nothing to do with this”

And the reply from Sanford's office is darkly amusing...
"Governor Sanford was unavailable for comment, but his office issued a statement saying “we’re not commenting on any of the first lady’s statements, but we like where she’s going with this.”"

is anybody - ANYBODY - going to fall for this stuff?

or did I miss something? - is it a parody?

edited to add: did gay marriage also force him to steal state funds to fly overseas for a quick lay?

The real question is do you think that allowing homosexual's to marry devalues marriage or is the real value of marriage determined by the character of those entering into it?

Is "both" or "some of each" an option?...

Not really, but if you feel that you must... If you believe that homosexual marriage devalues marriage, then you reject the core value of the individual homosexual, believing that he or she is automatically less than a heterosexual. In addition the homosexual could never possess the character required to enter into a marriage. Therefore without saying it with words, one would be saying that heterosexuals are inherently superior without any real justification for such and assertion.

Nope...

I believe "the homosexual COULD posess the charachter required to enter into a LEGAL UNION"...

But it's not marriage, which is between a man and a woman...

Once the state destroyed the concept of marriage and it became nothing more than a document in the states' eyes, homosexuals decided that they'll double-down and say "now that it doesn't have it's original meaning legally, we'll re-interpret it culturally, too!"...

Actually, the state did nothing to the concept of marriage. It was the populace. If heterosexuals have devalued marriage so much, then what's so flippin special that they feel they have to protect it from homosexuals. They've done nothing to protect it from themselves. Marriage is a legal term and whatever the term is under the law, it should apply to all "legally recognized social partnerships". If you want to defend marriage, then remove it from the law and put it back in the hands of the church, otherwise deal with the series of events put in placed by thousands of years of heterosexual social progression and recognize that the LAW should be blind to the gender of individuals entering into a legal contract.
