UK Daily Mail does exposè on Scott Walker family support for gay marriage

This is Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, pictured at the wedding reception of one of the first gay couples to marry in his state – who told Daily Mail Online today that they do not believe the presidential hopeful is against same-sex marriage.

He smiled with the newlyweds at their reception, which came weeks after a judge struck down an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as between a man and a woman - a move the governor vowed to overturn.

On June 6, 2014, a federal judge ruled in favor of a lawsuit challenging a 2006 amendment to Wisconsin's constitution, after a public vote, which defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb said Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, prompting a rush of same-sex couples getting wedding licenses.

Among the first to marry were Shelli Marquardt and Cathy Priem who married on June 9 at a civil courthouse ceremony in Waukesha County.

Haven't had time to read through the whole think, but the article is extensive.

If I were on the Scott Walker campaign(wherein I only care about winning the election), I would have intentionally planted this story to improve Walker's "elect-ability."

  1. They wore white pants outfits.

    So anyway. Speaking to a priest friend yesterday he told me that in many parishes in Mpls-StP there is strong support for same sex marriage. I sincerely did not know that and wasn't happy to hear it. he said it is because families have a child who is gay or another relative, neighbor, co-worker or close friend who is, and they are convinced it is a civil right. Likewise - parishoners leave or withhold contributions if the pastor preaches against it.

    I was disappointed, to say the least.

    I should add he mentioned that so many of the younger priests seem to want to 'go backward' - especially as regard the Extraordinary Mass - he didn't understand that.

    Thank God I do. Thank God for the newer younger priests.

    I guess I've been living under a rock.

  2. That battle was lost during the Second Vatican Council, but the proximate cause was and remains the Bishops' (and priests') refusal to take on artificial contraception often and hard.

  3. I noticed the white pant suits too. So, if they have not had intercourse with men, I guess they are technically virgins, right? Oh, too many uncomfortable questions arise.
