    Scores Of Republicans Sign Legal Brief Supporting Gay Marriage Ahead Of Supreme Court

    At least 75 top Republicans have signed a legal brief to be submitted to the Supreme Court this week, arguing that gay marriage is a constitutional right, according to The New York Times, which got a copy of the document.The court is preparing to take on the subject of gay marriage late next month, when it will hear oral arguments on the constitutionality of California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8, and the Defense of Marriage Act. It is expected to render a decision in early summer.
    The signers of the document are mostly out-of-office Republicans or former top officials, including former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, former Rep. Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio), former Massachusetts Govs. William Weld and Jane Swift, and former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman.
    Reps. Richard Hanna (N.Y.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.) are notable exceptions, and are among the most pro-gay Republicans in Congress.
    Their position stands in contrast to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who ispoised to spend up to $3 million in defense of DOMA. The law prohibits same-sex married couples from getting federal benefits and allows states not to recognize other states' same-sex unions. The Obama administration has directed its Justice Department not to defend the law.

    Now if they could moderate their position on illegals (no banning people who have never lived anywhere else for decades) and abortion (no 'rape babies are blessings'), they might be a viable party again.

    I'm guessing that if any Democrats were brave enough to sign a legal brief opposing gay marriage, as many of them do, they'd receive death threats from those paragons of tolerance, their fellow Democrats.

    Again, thank you for proving my point.
