There’s an interesting riff on the It Gets Better campaign with regard to gay rights: Mitt Gets Worse. While Mitt Romney has several times proclaimed himself an ally to the LGBTQ communities, every time he’s had some chance to make life easier or more fair for gays, he’s done the exact opposite — take the story Julie Goodridge tells, where her partner couldn’t visit with their daughter when she was rushed to intensive care. His response to “what should I tell my daughter about how the governor of our state refuses to let her mothers marry?” “Tell her what you’ve told her for the past eight years.”
What a callous, unfeeling terror Mitt Romney is. I genuinely fear what might happen to any marginalized community’s rights if this man takes office. Religiously motivated bigotry will by all appearances run roughshod.
