Shortly after Obama became the first US President to endorse marriage equality, Mitt Romney confirmed that not only was he opposed to gay marriage, but he couldn't even support civil unions (like all of the other Republican Presidential candidates this year, save for Hunstman.) This was not too surprising, since Mitt has been desperately trying to convince conservative fundamentalists that he is one of them.
But, in an attempt to have it both ways, Romney wanted to show that he is not without compassion for gay humans, stating:
"And if two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child -- in my state individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do.
Well, it's not much, but it's better than nothing. At least it's some type of statement that gay humans are still humans, right?
Actually, I think all states but one allow gay adoption. So that’s a position which has been decided by most of the state legislatures, including the one in my state some time ago. So I simply acknowledge the fact that gay adoption is legal in all states but one.
You see, he wasn't sharing his view of the issue with you human reporters, he was simply accessing state law from his registered memory modules for your edification. You are welcome.
