If You Don’t Vote – Why It IS The ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘During Clay Aiken debate, GOP rep. claims US was ‘founded on’ man-woman marriage’
‘Rpublican Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) on Monday said that she opposed marriage rights for LGBT people because the country was “founded on” marriage between a man and a woman’.
‘During a debate with Clay Aiken, the Democratic nominee for North Carolina’s 2nd District, WRAL’s David Crabtree pointed out that the Supreme Court had refused to hear a challenge to rulings that legalized same-sex marriage in five states. The decision also put six other states — including North Carolina — one step closer to having marriage equality’.
“I don’t have a crystal ball,” she said. “I’ve been very strong on this issue, and there again, a state’s issue. One that the federal government — although I do support defense of marriage between one man and one woman. I believe that’s what our country is founded on.”
