Newt Gingrich Posts Anti-Gay Video In Support of North Carolina Amendment
Ugh, this is pathetic. All though it's clear at this point to any casual observer that Mitt Romney will be the GOP presidential nominee and Newt should just give up already, he's using whatever clout he has left to rile up the conservative base by posting an anti-gay video in North Carolina.
In the clip, the presidential candidate threw his support behind the state's Amendment One measure, which would ban same-sex marriage as well as civil unions and domestic partnerships.
"There is an effort by radicals at every level to change who we are, to change what America is, and to change for our children into a future that I think will be much worse. Marriage between a man a and a woman is at the heart of our civilization," Gingrich said. "It's a belief that is now under attack and yet it is at the very core of defining who we are. That's why I urge you to vote for the initiative right here in North Carolina."
Gingrich, whose half sister is a lesbian, has spoken out against marriage equality throughout his presidential run, even signing a few anti-gay pledges along the way. Watch the video below.
