GOP Sen. Mark Kirk Comes Out in Support of Marriage Equality

Color me skeptical

The next Republican to take the step that’s guaranteed to hurt him badly with the right wing base: Statement From Senator Kirk on Same-Sex Marriage.

When I climbed the Capitol steps in January, I promised myself that I would return to the Senate with an open mind and greater respect for others.

Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. Our time on this Earth is limited, I know that better than most. Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back— government has no place in the middle.

Terse, but to the point. I confess, there’s a part of me that suspects this is a scheme of some kind; I don’t trust them one bit. Let’s wait to see what happens when these pro-marriage equality Republicans have to actually vote on legislation to back up their words.

Let’s have a look at how the readers of right wing site Hot Air are responding to this news, shall we?

Senate gay-marriage pool update: Democrat Tom Carper — and Republican Mark Kirk — “evolve” on SSM « Hot Air

Are we talking about love or sticking a man’s penis into another man’s dirty anus?

[…]

NAMBLA is, no doubt, taking notes.

[…]

This is really becoming very humorous at this point. All of this evolution based on polls not prayer. All one needs to do is read a bible or the Torah and the choice is very clear. Man and women. Be fruitful and multiply is very difficult to achieve otherwise.

[…]

Look Ma, two more lemmings just went over the ledge.

[…]

I think phyiscal contact by members of the same sex falls
under Human Biology….but if rooting around in nether regions
is where you find your “Liberty” have at it.

[…]

There have been a number of rumors that Mark Kirk is “queerer than a $3 bill” which was a major reason for his divorce.

[…]

Call them what they are, which is bigots. Every single gay-sex marriage supporter endorses antireligious bigotry and opposes freedom of religious belief and speech. Every one.

[…]

Gay blogger, Kevin Dujan, over at Hillbuzz has long maintained that Kirk is himself homosexual.

[…]

Oh Bla-acks and Laaa-tiiiinoooos yoo-hoo, what happened to your Lord and Savior 0bama having your backs, after all you did for him? Ain’t that a shame. Youuuuuu voted for it! Maybe y’all should re-think that bussing folks to the polls just because X candidate is darker than a paper bag, guys.

[…]

I object to the term, evolve.

It is devolution - from the natural and normal, to the unnatural and abnormal.

To embrace abomination.

They can do what they want, to whom they want - and it won’t change the truth.

Oh, many people will believe the lies, and they will embrace the demands of the homosexuals - but the truth will always remain.

[…]

The rat-eared devil or the gays themselves don’t care about “marriage” per se. Dudes are already playing house with other dudes. This is about vengence. The removal of tax exempt status for any church who do not embrace sodomy as normal and natural. They will be compelled to perform sodomite marriage sacraments, they will be compelled to ordain practicing gay clergy. It will not matter what the tenets of faith or the Bible says, this is all about revenge.

Looks like there’s just a teensy bit of resistance among the right wing base.

Sen. Rick Scott Senate Re-Election Chair’s GOP PlanDaughter1 provided this clear-text draft of the GOP 11-point plan from the eye-poison on the Scott website. It is still recursive as created, crowded and full of codewords, but much more readable. The "Sundown" clause alone is enough to end ...
