Presidential hopeful Rudy Guiliani has reversed course. The candidate, who had previously endorsed civil unions while opposing marriage, issued a statement yesterday after the New Hampshire Senate passed a civil unions bill.
"Mayor Giuliani believes marriage is between one man and one woman. Domestic partnerships are the appropriate way to ensure that people are treated fairly. In this specific case the law states same sex civil unions are the equivalent of marriage and recognizes same sex unions from outside states. This goes too far and Mayor Giuliani does not support it."
So I wonder how that gay couple he stayed with after he left his umpteenth wife feels about this? Why start splitting hairs about how close a civil union comes to marriage as versus just a domestic partnership? Does that mean we're entitled to some benefits, but this version gives too many? Where the hell is that line drawn?
What a tool. Way to try and pander to the religious right, Rudy.
