Sen. Portman To Reverse On Same-Sex Marriage
Original post made by dublinmike on Mar 15, 2013
The same-sex couples that live in the Tri-valley want the same things we want: safe streets, strong economy, strong vibrant communities, willing to work hard to get a head, no hand-outs, be treated fairly, and strong families. They work in commercial sales, they are project engineers, work at wine tasting rooms, teach our kids, managers at our food stores and more.
I hope our US Supreme Court does the right thing for humans rather than lean towards narrow-minded and debunked religious bigotry to support the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision to overturn Prop. 8.

While I am pleased that Portman changed his position, I am displeased with his comments about why he made the change. He said he had not thought much about the matter until his son came out, and only then did Portman begin to consider the subject of gay marriage more critically. He was a vocal and staunch opponent of gay marriage prior to this announcement, but admits he did not actually give it much consideration? Ohio needs a new senator if this is any indication of how he goes about doing his job.

A Neighbor, while I agree with you I have come to realize that better than late is better than not at all.
If you met me in my late teens and twenties, you would have heard me say derogatory comments about Gays. When I learned from a guy I worked with part-time at a pizza place that he was gay I had to step back and wondered why I was fearful. Quite a revelation.
