Letter to the Editor: Republicans Supporting Gay Marriage

Your article in last week's SFGN edition regarding few Republicans supporting Gay marriage is typically biased and misleading to your readers.

Consider these so-called homophobes among the many conservatives who are on record in supporting same-sex marriage in the past several years:

Former President George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush
Laura Bush and the Bush Twins
Vice-President Dick Cheney and Mrs. Cheney
Ambassador John Bolton
George W. Bush's evangelical pro-life former Solicitor General, Ted Olsen, who won the California and US Supreme Court cases outlawing bans on same-sex marriage
Miami Congressman Carlos Curebelo
Miami Congresswoman Illeana Ros-Lehtinen
Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown
Grover Norquist -- No New Taxes Pledge Founder
Ohio GOP Senator Rob Portman
Utah Governor and 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman
Maine GOP Senator Susan Collins
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
Illinois Senator Mark Kirk

Those who have expressed openness to domestic partnerships and civil unions:

Senator Rand Paul
Dr. Ben Carson

Publisher Norm Kent did an outstanding job providing equal time in 2014 for Gay conservatives and libertarians, but he needs to demand that his editors dig deeper for the truth.

Respectfully submitted,
