In a recent interview with Bloomberg, 2016 GOP aspirant Donald Trump said he “wouldn’t speak to them at all about it” if he were asked by a son/daughter/grandchild about why he opposes same-sex marriage.
Wow. That’s ‘presidential.’
From LGBTQ Nation:
Trump replied, “Well, it’s the way it is. I wouldn’t speak to them at all about it, other than they are who they are and I want them to be happy and I will love them and I will cherish them.”
“I’ve gone to gay weddings,” he continued. “I’ve been at gay weddings. I have been against it from the standpoint of Bible, from the standpoint of my teachings as growing up and going to Sunday school and going to church and I’ve been opposed to it.”
“We’ll just see how it all comes out,” he concluded, “but if I was ever in that position I’d just have to explain it.”
In recent days, the thrice-married Trump (isn’t divorce a bad thing in the Bible too?) has proclaimed the Bible his favorite book; although, he was not able to quote or reference a single verse from the good book.
What’s clear to many is Trump’s “opposition” to marriage equality is only an attempt to placate evangelical Republicans. I no more believe Trump opposes same-sex marriage than I believe he opposes divorce.
