Gov. Romney Untrustworthy on Marriage Since 2004

A sure sign of a supposedly "pro-family" politician's unreliablity is his willingness to attend a same-sex "wedding."

A friend recently unearthed this item on Gov. Mitt Romney [as reported by WCVB Channel 5, just days before the phony "marriages" started in May 2004]:

Gov. Mitt Romney called on protesters to be respectful and hospitable to those getting married on Monday [May 17, 2004]. The state's most prominent opponent of gay marriages, Romney said he might attend same-sex wedding ceremonies in the future. But he declined the first invitation from radio personality Darrell Martini, known as the Cosmic Muffin. Romney said he had a scheduling conflict.

We've also heard that a former steadfast ally of the pro-family cause, State Senator Robert Hedlund (R - Weymouth), attended a "wedding" of two men, and told a constituent he's "under a lot of pressure" to vote against the marriage amendment. And State Rep. Garrett Bradley (D - Hingham) recently stated, "If two men or two women want to get married, that's okay with me."
