“The federal government’s number crunchers believe some 21,318 same-sex couples call Georgia home, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s most recent accounting, and new research forecasts that as many as half would jump the broom within three years if allowed by their government.
“I’m one-half of one of those aggrieved couples — denied, for more than five years, the social stability and legal protections of marriage. And, as a former spokesman for the Republican National Committee and adviser to prominent party figures, I’m also a professional political operative who’s helped install in government those who perpetuate marriage bias in America.
“Throughout my career I’ve publicly advocated for the freedom to marry, urging the party for which I work to allow gay men and women to wed even as I never openly disclosed my personal stake. I’ve preached the small-government virtues of equal marriage, echoing a conservative case that had been made many times before by thinkers more eloquent and far brighter than myself. Never once did I write that I am gay.” –James Richardson, writing for the Washington Post.
Richardson who in his original article links to “evidence’ that “throughout my [his] career I’ve publicly advocated for the freedom to marry” and every example that he states is long after his career with the GOP ended is another in a long line of self-lathing gay quisinglings who are willing to turn their back and the the LGBT community while they accept a paycheck from the GOP and after they are done look to be welcomed into the community with open arms.
Richardson is a former spokesman for the Republican National Committee. He lives in one of the most socially repressive states in the Nation (Georgia). He and his partner are “envious subscribers to the conventional, conservative family model”. He and his partner belong to an “evangelical church they have quietly attended for years”. And NOW he is displeased that he is not permitted to marry his partner.
Fuck you Richardson. Crawl back under your quisling rock where you belong.
