Bush endorses gay marriage

Posted by Tom Megginson | 1-02-2011 18:18 | Category: Human rights



Not an exciting ad, except for the fact that the spokeperson is the “junior” Barbara Bush, daughter of fundamentally Christian conservative Republican, U.S. former President George W. Bush. (President Bush Sr.‘s wife is also named “Barbara”.)

You may recall that George W Bush called for a ban on same-sex marriage in 2004, saying “The union of a man and a woman is the most enduring human institution, honored and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith. Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening the good influence of society.”

Interestingly, Barbara’s mother, former First Lady Laura Bush, also spoke in favour of same-sex marriage last year.

And why doesn’t the United States have a woman President yet? (Oh yeah, Sarah Palin. Nevermind…)

See Laura Bush’s surprising 2010 interview after the break.
