Not looking for an ATP&N bickering match.
To me it’s like a gun owner who supports background checks and thinks there should be restrictions on some guns.
Yeah, I don't see that as a great analogy either :)
Better analogy IMO would be a gun owner who supports background checks and buys their son a gun after the son fails a background check.

Everything I read said he voted against gay marriage, then attended his son's gay wedding. Awkward or what?

He doesn't get it. Thig guy isn't fit for office for being a moron in addition to the other stuff
Anti-LGBTQ lawmaker who celebrated son's gay wedding just can't find the connection (

Recap for any asshole feeling the urge to repeat Republican talking points about "settled law" and precedent.
The House vote came about after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, sending the issue of abortion back to individual states. Many of those states have since made access to abortion impossible or highly restricted. Justice Clarence Thomas, in his concurring opinion on the ruling, said the court should look again at Obergefell v. Hodges. That 2015 case legalized same-sex marriage across the U.S.
The bill’s exclusively Republican opponents argue it is superfluous as Supreme Court precedent already protects the right of two individuals to marry in the United States, despite the fact that 50 years of abortion rights precedent just went up in smoke.

47 of his GOP House colleagues crossed the aisle to be on the right side of history and protect the hard-won rights of LGBTQ Americans.
