Mitt Romney: Gays currently married can stay married, but would bar future marriage equality

Mitt Romney, in an interview with the Boston Herald, said he would support a constitutional amendment that could create a complex three-tier system of marriage — maintaining marriage rights for straight couples, allowing gays who have already married to remain married, but barring future same-sex marriages.

“I think it would keep intact those marriages which had occurred under the law but maintain future plans based on marriage being between a man and a woman,” Romney said.

Well, how nice.  He would let those of us who are married to the person we love stay married.  Generous of him.  Then there’s the part where he would deny future nuptials for gays and lesbians.

Perhaps he’s trying to look a bit less hateful after his recent disastrous “meeting” on the campaign trail with gay Vietnam vet, Bob Garon.  I don’t think it’s working.
