    Bad analogy. What dirt do you think you are exposing here exactly?

    I get that Justice RBG's officiation is different. But I still don't get why anyone would think that's a problem.

    Wait i thought ALL republicans are anti-gay?

    guess not


    as to the OP, ANYBODY that has a problem with someone being a witness to a legal marriage or a judge conducting a legal marriage is actually the ONLY one with the problem. Nobody cares what losers like that think.

    Wasn't someone wondering if it was OK for a Supreme Court Justice to do a gay wedding? I seem to remember that being something of an issue when Ruth Bader Ginsburg did so.

    Anyway, what about an ex-President

    IMO, it was a political motivated move.
    Reason? Gay marriage will take top discussion in the upcoming election. George W. Bush, opposed same-sex marriage and in 2004 announced his support for a proposed constitutional amendment to outlaw it. So daddy (with mommy) shows up as a witness at a gay marriage to send out the message that not all Bush's think alike. Even Jeb Bush who agreed with his brother George once upon a time is now making claim we should be more tolerant of other types of marriages and that they should be decided in the states. Daddy Bush is just softening it up a bit for little Jeb.

    Just further proof that H.W. Bush isn't anywhere near to being a Conservative. Not really all that surprising, so far as I'm concerned.

    I think that this sort of thing shows that most politicians, on either side of the aisle, aren't really so rabid about a lot of the social issues. Probably most of congress doesn't care about things like gay rights one way or the other. But their voters do. On one hand, it's a little nice to see that these elected (or former elected) leaders really do have some decent morality, but then it's saddening to see that they have to cater to a large enough demographic of bigots to affect policy.

    See the above bigot and other examples of H. W. Bush being subject to "no true scotsman" attacks, for example.
