Barbara Bush Advocates For Gay Marriage In New York Civil Rights Campaign

February 4, 2011 by  

Barbara Bush Advocates For Gay Marriage In New York Civil Rights CampaignBarbara Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, has joined a list of well-known Republicans who support gay marriage.

According to media reports, Barbara appears in a 20-second advertisement that is featured on the Human Rights Campaign's website. The video is one of several testimonials from New Yorkers who support marriage equality. Whoopi Goldberg, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg are among the other participants in the campaign.

"New York is about fairness and equality and everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love. Join us," Barbara says in the video.

Although most GOP lawmakers oppose gay marriage, Barbara joins her mother Laura Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Cindy McCain, wife of Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), as prominent conservatives who back equal rights for homosexuals. Mary Cheney, the former VP's daughter, is openly gay.

Although President Barack Obama opposed same-sex marriage during his 2008 presidential campaign, the commander-in-chief has indicated in recent months that his stance is "evolving." Eight states currently grant marriage licenses to gay couples, but under the Defense of Marriage Act — passed in 1996 — the Federal government cannot recognize these unions.

      It’s never time for this immoral lifestyle! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • The Shogun

        It’s never time for an open mind and tolerance of others. FOR DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER!!

        • Dan Burke

          Tolerance can be good and it can be bad. The question is what are you tolerating?

          Open mind? Depends on your definition.

          Open mind as in any idea is fine, then you are in trouble. For if you have no foundation, then you will blown about by the winds and whims of the world.

          Now if you have an open mind to the idea that you don’t know everything…. It is one thing to be open to discovering flaws in your foundation. It is another thing entirely to have no foundation. Think of it this way. If you make no choice on how and what you think, then someone will make that choice for you.

          So how do I feel about homosexuals marrying? I am against it. Why? I believe in God. Not everyone who believes in God sees things the same way I do. Does that mean I am wrong? Or could it be that they are wrong? Or is it possible that both sides of the issue are both wrong or both right? I cannot say for sure. What I do know for sure is that I believe we are treading away from God as a nation, and I happen to believe this issue is just one piece of a grander puzzle that would show how we as mankind are seeking to put our wisdom above God’s.

  • Cliffystones

    Looks like all of those years of indoctrination and brainwashing are finally paying off for the “progressives”.

    • James in NY

      Hey Cliffy – it is just reality – accept it. I am sure your ilk said the same thing when segregation was found unconstitutional and when the Civil Rights Act passed. Way to go Barbara. Don’t look now Cliffy but the indoctrination boys are outside your door ready to take you away.

      • wandamurline

        If you want to be gay…that is your right to do so. If I do not want to acknowledge that gay is okay…then, that is my right to do so. Being homosexual is a choice, one that I do not condon, but your right to choose, but don’t try to make me acknowledge your choice as normal, because it is anything but. Homosexual is against the laws of nature…even the higher animal population does not involve themselves in this type of behavior…but, wait, humans are so much above and brighter than the rest of nature.

        • DavidL

          It is more “normal” than you think. There are over 1200 species in nature that practice homosexuality in addition to humans. Here are some examples:

          Black swans
          Gulls
          Ibises
          Mallards
          Penguins
          Vultures
          Pigeons
          Amazon Dolphin
          American Bison
          Bonobo and other apes
          Bottlenose dolphins
          Elephants
          Giraffes
          Humans
          Japanese macaque
          Lions
          Polecat
          Sheep
          Spotted Hyena

          • ValDM

            I assume you wrote your list from personal experience. You’ve actually SEEN this with your own eyes? IF and that’s a big IF these animals are engaging in this type of behavior, it just means it isn’t anything but a dalliance. When it comes down to procreation they’ll hook up with their opposite number. I seems animals may be smarter than humans……..they don’t make a habit of their dalliances. BTW, gays and lesbians aren’t being discriminated against in the marriage field they can marry anyone of the opposite sex. Just like the heteros do.

          • Judy

            this you’ll have to prove as I doubt it. Animals aren’t homosexual, they procreate, something the gays can’t do together

          • http://naver samurai

            Can we stop with the animal BS nonsense? Animals and humans are different. We know the lifestyle is wrong and is punishable with fire and brimstone. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Paul Hickman

            Only humans are judged by GOD, when all other living species die they’r souls die with them.

        • James in NY

          People are born gay. That is why we have the term sexual orientation. When did you decide to be straight?

          • http://?? Joe H.

            James,
            show me some proof that isn’t hypothesis!! You can’t because it doesn’t exhist!! Show me where they found the “gay” gene!!

          • http://naver samurai

            If this is true then why does it say it’s wrong in the Bible? Read Romans 1 verses 26 – 28 and Leviticus 20 verse 13. Only a complete moron would believe the nonsense that you just posted. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Curtis

            This is an old email specifically re-written for the Samurai…
            Dear Samurai:
            Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your posts, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.
            I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them.
            1). When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
            2). I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
            3). I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual cleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.
            4). Leviticus 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?
            5). I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?
            6). A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is a abomination of Leviticus 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?
            7). Leviticus 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?
            8). Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Leviticus 19:27. How should they die?
            9). I know from Leviticus 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
            10). My uncle has a farm. He violates Leviticus 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev. 24:10-16). Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14).
            I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.
            Your devoted disciple and adoring fan,
            Curtis.

          • Sergey

            “Born gay”, what a nonsense. Gay people have check their “equipment” and it can tell you who you are. If the “equipment” is not working than its different issue

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Curtis,
            I don’t know about burning A bull, but you sure are burning a lot OF bull here!!!

          • Curtis

            Seriously Joe? That’s all you’ve got? You want to quote the bible as some sort of credible proof that homosexuality is wrong… well if the Bible is infallible… then I want YOU to answer the questions. Explain these other Biblical passages. Aren’t they still relevant? I mean either you take the ENTIRE bible literally or you’re an intellectual fraud that just picks and chooses the passages that suits your needs at the time? C’mon Joe (and Sam R I) there are ten questions based on quotes from your bible, why can’t you answer them? Don’t dodge the questions, don’t run away and pretend you didn’t read this, man-up and give us the answers.

          • Curtis

            What’s the matter boys? No response? It must be hard a your ages to realize that your book isn’t infallible after all. Yes, it’s full of mistakes and contradictions… it was written by men to scare and control the uneducated and incredibly simple people of the past. Now you’ve got a conundrum… either admit your book is flawed which means your entire belief system is based on lies… or answer the ten questions. And can you do it soon? I mean you always have the answers… so what’s taking so long Joe? And Samurai? I asked you first… where’s YOUR answers? Tick tock boys.

        • Dee

          You got that right. I never could figure out if homosexualism is a chosen life style or if they were born this way. Either way, it is wrong. God said so forth and multiply, you sure can’t do it with 2 men or 2 women. I’m tired of everyone trying to ram it down our throats too. Barbara Bush evidently doesn’t believe in God.

          • Paul Hickman

            God’s Word tells of two laws or contracts with mankind and like all new contracts His NEW LAW supercedes His OLD LAW and also like a contact His New LAW contains some parts of the OLD LAW like nine of the Ten commandments,His New Law does not command us to keep the Sabath(Saturday)holy or many old laws of worship.

  • michael

    It is not time. I don’t care what century it is. These are conservatives in name only. Like it says in Malachi, I the Lord I changeth not. In order words gay is still wrong, end of story. After all these content to go to hell homosexuals stole the word gay from us in the 1st place, for gay means happy.

    • Kinetic1

      michael,
      1637, the Oxford English Dictionary: Among the definitions of “gay”
      “addicted to social pleasures and dissipations. Often euphemistically: Of loose and immoral life”–whence, presumably, the term “gay blade.” In the 1800s the term was used to refer to female prostitutes.

      Gay has meant more than “happy” since long before your Great Grandparents born. It’s time to stop re-writing history and face reality.

      • http://deleted Claire

        I named my daughter “Julia Gaye” because of their meanings. Julia means young and silken-haired, Gaye means merry and happy. My daughter hates her middle name. She never uses it, just the initial “G.”
        Way back then, the word gay had a different meaning. Now it means homosexuals. Well, I guess a person can’t win them all.

        • Joyce from Loris

          I know what you mean. My husband’s mother’s maiden name is Gay. They very much resent the fact that “gay” is applied as it is to homosexuals. We do not call homosexuals GAY, we call them HOMOSEXUALS. That is what they are. Back in my father’s day (a long time ago) they called them queers. I will stick to homosexuals. It’s like the illegal aliens in America, wanting to be called “undocumented immigrants”. No, they are illegal aliens. Period. I would love for someone to call me “young and beautiful”, but I would still be a old, attractive woman”, no matter the label they put on me.

          • http://deleted Claire

            Joyce from Loris– When I was a teenager, homosexuals were called fags, fruits, fairies, and queers. Whether or not they were actual homosexuals, I do not know. I was never around them except in class. I really didn’t think much about actual sexual orientation, I just figured they didn’t “fit in.” Ahhh, the days of innocence.

    Why would it ever be time for something so morally,so mother nature wrong than a relationship for two people of the same sex.It is disgusting, and just plane “sick”.For those that do not know this, you must be deranged in the brain or something like a queer person, who has a mental disease. It is a mental disease and has been proven so many times. Leave God out of this as you do not need God to tell you how wrong it is for two of the same sex to wed in marraige.

    To day in America we live in a morally decaying society, that is about to crumble to the ground. It won’t be long now.

    • eddie47d

      Your sarcasm and hatred for gays is obvious.That is what is wrong with America.Live your own life and stop being such a bully.

      • http://naver samurai

        How about giving that advice to the gays, moron. They are the one’s forcing their immoral lifestyle on us. They have the same rights under the Constitution, but they feel that they deserve more rights. Sorry, but you’re not entitled to anything you don’t earn. Freakish lifestyles aren’t earning anything. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Marie

      You’re right, spitfire. And not only because of the gays determination to carry through to what God calls wrong, but the United States is slowly decaying away as the morals of man [ and women ] are too decaying away. The more we throw God away the more we’re losing what He has given us through Abraham. We are going to see and experience things in this country one day that will be worse than world war 2. It’s sad that many are not going to listen and when theses things come about, they will have wished they had listened, but then it will be too late.

        Some day the whole earth will be as Sodem and Gomarah but instead of fire and brimstone there will be just fire that will destroy the earth and all things we have ever known about.

        Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

        1Thes 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of
        the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (KJV)

        Revelation 1: 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced
        him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

        Matthew 12:36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
        1 Cor 15:52
        52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound,
        and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

        ARE YOU READY?

        • linda

          Amen and Amen! May all who are willing to do so come to the Lord Jesus for healing and safety before it is too late. As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the day of the Lord’s coming. Matthew 24:37(paraphrased. Only 8 out of thousands, perhaps millions, chose to believe back then, and it is the same today. There is enough evidence for God on which to rest one’s faith, but never proof until one chooses to step FIRST. “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Ps 34:8. You will never turn back!

    • wandamurline

      If you read the Bible, it states plainly that being homosexual is a sin against God. I know that many in America no longer believe in God, unfortunate for your soul. The homosexual was the start of AIDS in America, which did not just stay with the gay populace, it ended up in the heterosexual community. I believe that we will be punished for our loss of morality…you had better hope that Sharia law is never implemented…being homosexual is a crime that is punished by death in the Muslim world. I personally don’t care what life style you choose, just don’t try to make me agree with you…because it is unnatural for two men to have sex together…it really is disgusting to me…and I don’t hate the gay community, I am just sharing how I feel about it and I feel it is wrong.

You quote scripture, you claim to believe in God, yet you’re really just raving hypocrite calling people that you disagree with ‘morons’ and you spew hate towards gays.

In fact the sites seem to run 3 to 1 AGAINST the possible theory of a homosexual gene exhisting!!! I know this is probably above your education level, but at least try. I doubt, however you will as a person who CHOOSES to lead the life style you do!!

    • Vic M.

      Well said.

  • spitfire

    Integrity is the last thing this indicates. It does however indicate very poor moral judgement and no leadership, just another sheep following the flock. Maybe Doc Sarvis is one of them “3 dollar bills”, or a “Rump Ranger”. Good Grief what has become of our country?

    • Ted Crawford

      What has happened is that we have set back and allowed the progressives to overrun our Country! We should have payed more heed to Winston Churchill! “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, ifyou will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the time when you must fight with all the odds against you, and only a small chance of survivl. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory,because it is better to perish than to live as slaves”

      • James in NY

        Relax Ted -If you are not gay you should not being getting so worked up about the prospect of gay marriage. I thought this was the “Personal Liberty Digest” Sounds more to me like the “I want to stick my nose in everyone’s business digest”.

        • Ellen

          Personal liberty only counts if you’re heterosexual. The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness only applies to heterosexuals. Apparently we must stick our noses into everyone else’s business and we just can’t mind our own.

          Just remember folks, all of these issues only serve to distract and divide us from our attention on the real evil in this world: the global slime who are engineering our downfall by the minute. They’ve been very successful in this. Our absolute attention should be on what they’re doing and spreading that information far and wide.

  • Jeep

    Say what you will about homosexuality (personally I find it repugnant, but that is just my opinion.) However, it simply a matter of economics driven by public policy. If tax incentives, medical coverage and the like were NOT based on marriage, then it stands to reason that there would be no issue. Why does the county HAVE to issue a marriage license? Hmmm…maybe because it is a source of revenue? Wake up, this is not a “morale” issue. This is an economic issue.

  • Gerrold in CA

    The gay rights movement is all about money. At present no one is legally persecuted for being homosexual. What’s at stake here is the rights of “domestic partners” to receive tax benefits, employment benfits, and parental benefits if the Federal Government forces all states to recognize and allow homosexual marriages.

    I’m a bible thumper, right winger, Tea Partier, and so on and could care less if your homosexual. Leaves more pickins for us straight people :-))

    • James in NY

      The issue is equality. Government must offer benefits equally.

      • Gerrold in CA

        When has the government ever offered benefits equally? Once the social issue is resolved the government madates are irrelevant.

        I have written proof of inequality in our federal & state benefit programs. As a business owner I see the rediculious from our government.

    Maybe we need to rethink the curator of the bible. He was not there when God made man. Maybe what actually happed was God made Adam, then made Everest who was actually a transvestite so Everest changed his name to Eve?

    John 15:14 says Jesus says ”You are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you”. In the end, GOD will destroy HIS enemies.

    Gen. 18:20 God states SIN is very grievous to HIM.

    Corinthians, 6:9 states ”Know you not that the unrighteous will NOT inherit the kingdom of God. Be NOT deceived: neither fornicators nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
    verse 10: Nor thieves, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of GOD.

    Sin is grievous and will ultimately corrupt any nation from within and I love this country based on Christian principles.

    The next verse says we have been justified in the name of the LORD JESUS, and by the spirit of our GOD.

    Where exactly does John 15:14, Gen.18:20, Corinthians 6:9, jesus, or god appear in the laws of the land?? These are “religious texts, and religious symbols” with no secular meaning or application. You can “believe” or “not believe” in this country. Marriage is, and will remain so, secular. Remember the words “We the people” not “We the Religious” or “We the Christians” or “We the bible readers”….

  • tough beast

    And where exactly is the evidence of a god or any of the other twaddle that is written in any of the three monotheist holy books?? There is none, so it is only “faith” in fantasy, and not reality.

      Pilate looked into Jesus’s face and asked ‘What is truth’

      I’ve already done it on this side of eternity.

      Whether you choose to believe in this total reality or not is your decision to make.
      Jesus is a GOD of love and gave his life willingly for you to be saved, but remember on that ‘Day of the LORD’ HE’ll be a GOD of wrath.

    Homosexuality is against God and His creation, period. The advancement of it will eventually destroy the family which by God’s design consists of a male husband, a female wife and the resultant children. The destruction of God’s normal family unit will eventually result in the breakdown of our society and the destruction of our country.

    If love is all that is necessary, then I’m sure that “Marriage Equality” advocates will not have a problem with marriage between family members, multiple partners, adult/child, etc. After all, culturally worldwide and animal behavior studies provide far more evidence for these types of relationships than the minute and subjective for homosexual(the animal behavior touted as homosexual was once viewed as agrression)
    Regarding the remark about animals….add that to the list of available marriage partners.

    Leave it to someone who’s supposdly a ‘Republican’ to waste time on an issue that won’t make America a better nation. So is GB’s daughter stumping for votes, or does she have a problem with speaking before she takes a hard look at the issue?
    Free speech does not render an opinion more valid or worth more consideration simply because it makes the pc police, NPR listeners or another generation of fence-sitting, budding politicians happy. If I need an opinion from one of GB’s daughters, it will be on a topic that has the potential to make America a better nation. Screw the pc police.

      Gay is a word that’s meaning was distorted by the perverts to make their life-style sound more normal. Stick with queers, perverts or faggots; those words are more discriptive and accurate.

      • Think

        Yes, it is undermining facts and communication and a product of deceit when a word is applied to hide rather than explain, describe or identify the subject. We have freedom of speech and we have the right to credibility and integrity of our speech and words. This twisting of words was the first intrusion by homosexuals into disrupting and attacking America and our society. If they had any tone of integrity they would not value or push for being called “gay.” Queer is a word that means strange, unusual, outside the norm. Would the so-called “gay” people also deny the meaning of the word queer as applied to behavior that is outside the “norm” of human behavior? How else could behavior by human beings be described which results in the end of reproduction when their physical bodies were created as sources of reproduction?
