Cindy McCain poses for same-sex marriage campaign Cindy McCain, the wife of the Republican presidential candidate, has posed for a Web site promoting same-sex marriage. McCain, who's married to Arizona Sen. John McCain, appears in a photograph on the site with a piece of silver duct tape over her mouth and the slogan "No H8" written on her cheek.
The site's owners were stunned when Mrs. McCain came to them with the idea of posing for them, they said when posting her photo Wednesday. McCain to have reached out to us to offer her support truly means a lot," they wrote. I think more Republicans need to start taking a stand for equality," Meghan McCain wrote on her Twitter page.
Meghan McCain appears holding an elephant - the symbol of the Republican party - with tape over its tusks. Running for president, John McCain said he believed marriage should be between one man and one woman. He reiterated that view through a spokeswoman Thursday.
The senator chaired the effort to successfully pass Arizona Proposition , the Marriage Protection Amendment, and his opposition to gay marriage remains the same," Brooke Buchanan said. The No H8 campaign arose in response to California's back-and-forth on same-sex marriage - first approved by the courts, then overturned by voters in a statewide referendum called Proposition 8. The issue is back in court now. Bouska, a photographer, launched the site with Parshley "as a silent protest," they wrote.
It showcases pictures of Californians who oppose Proposition 8, they wrote when it launched nearly a year ago. It expanded to include celebrities and other supporters of same-sex marriage, all appearing with duct tape over their mouths and "No H8" painted on their cheeks. No one wants to deny rights and the vast majority of people are not homophobic. However, most Americans think marriage between man and a woman is an important institution for families and our nation.
I hope those pushing this agenda can understand this logic. January 21, They are playing politics Now show the Maverick how it's done! But that Holier than thou,I know how you should live your life,fear of god crap is what causes moderates like myself to vote Anti-Republican every time.
Believe what you want to believe,but keep God out of politics. He is busy enough The constitution demands it! Now you are trying to define family too? I think thats what you are saying but I really can't tell.
It did make me smile when I saw this article. I don't know much about Cindy, the republican party, or policitcs at all but anytime a public figure stands up against inequality or prejudice it makes me happy. Regardless of what you may feel about her or her motives for doing this you never know, this may change someones mind or at least get them thinking about it. The more exposure this issue gets, the better it is for the cause.
However, I do not believe Cindy McCain did this out of respect for these individuals It's not a choice. Why would someone "choose" to allow someone to vote on whether they should marry? When was the last time someone voted on whether you have the right to marry? When she thought her husband could get elected, she kept her mouth shut. It was and is all about the money.
You can't trust people who speak with forked toungs.
