Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Mike Gravel On Gays

Posted by nytexan on May 9, 2007

It’s to bad Gravel doesn’t have a shot in hell of winning the nomination, maybe that’s why he isn’t afraid to speak freely. The other candidates should try it but then they would win if they told us how they really felt.

Mike Gravel, 2008 Democratic presidential candidate, says he has no problem with gay love.

New Hampshire’s WMUR TV hosted a conversation with Gravel in which the former US senator, answering an audience question about gay marriage, replies, “If a couple of lesbians or gay men want to get married, and they love each other, they should have the right to do that and enjoy all the legalities in our society that go along with that. I have no problem with that at all.”

“I think that people who create these problems of homophobia and the likes of that do us a disservice,” Gravel continues. “We are all human beings and one of the things that should motivate us, most of all, is love.”

He blasts President Bush’s “faith-based leadership,” saying, “You can’t legislate morality.”

    Given the high divorce rate, I say that ONLY gays should be allowed to marry. We’ll see if they can do better at staying married.

    I think they can, since many gay and lesbian couples I know have been together for 10+ years.

  3. Gravel is like the crazy grandpa that we all know and love. Its a good kinda crazy.

    Its nice to see something good and progressive coming out of Texas. I was born in Texas. Keep up the great work with the blog.

    Gravel is the crazy relative we all have and love.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I’m trying hard to give Texas liberals a voice in the national forum.
