Maybe if he had listened to his wife, he might be holding down the most important job in the country right now. I gotta give it up for Cindy. She is not a woman who took the loss as a sign that her voice was not valued. Now, Cindy is standing up in the fight in CA against Prop. 8, the vote that took away the ability for Californians to have total choice to decide who they want to have as their partner. John McCain was forced to clarify that he is a discriminator and he thinks that marriage is ONLY between a man and a woman.
Cindy and Meghan McCain, posed for photos endorsing pro-gay marriage forces in California.Mrs McCain appears with silver duct tape across her mouth and “NOH8” written on one cheek. The photo was posted on Wednesday on the NOH8 campaign’s website.
The homosexual rights group opposes Proposition 8 – the ballot measure passed by Californian voters in 2008 which bans same-sex marriage.
Cindy McCain contacted NOH8 and offered to pose for the photo endorsement, the website said.
John McCain’s office said in a statement that the Arizona senator an 2008 Republican presidential candidate respects the views of members of his family but remains opposed to gay marriage.
“Sen McCain believes the sanctity of marriage is only defined as between one man and one woman,” the statement said.
The senator backed an Arizona ballot measure passed by voters in 2008 that defined marriage as between one man and one woman.
NOH8 praised Cindy McCain’s willingness to publicly endorse a cause that is unpopular within the Republican party.
“The McCains are one of the most well-known Republican families in recent history, and for Mrs McCain to have reached out to us to offer her support truly means a lot,” said a statement on the group’s website.
Meghan McCain said on Twitter: “I couldn’t be more proud of my mother for posing for the NOH8 campaign. I think more Republicans need to start taking a stand for equality.”
