After the state of New York passed marriage equality on Friday night, the question begged to be asked: Who would be the first Republican presidential contender to attack the decision?
Despite his dubious history, Newt Gingrich saw fit to be the first out of the gate.
(Reuters) – Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich on Saturday said the adoption of same-sex marriage in New York showed the nation is “drifting toward a terrible muddle.”
Saying he thinks marriage is between a man and a woman, he told reporters that he “would like to find ways to defend that view as legitimately and effectively as possible.”
He said he thinks the nation should be defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage ass being between a man and a woman.
Newt Gingrich knows all about defending marriage, doesn’t he?
Actually, I can think of no one better to educate the rest of us on what it looks like to be “drifting toward a terrible muddle.”
Will Newt display his unrivaled patriotism and love of straight marriage by marrying a fourth woman? Only time, and his next bill from Tiffany’s, will tell.
