Appearing Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), former Florida governor and potential GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush said he remains opposed to gay marriage.
When Fox News commentator Sean Hannity asked whether his views on the subject had changed, Bush answered: “No. I believe in traditional marriage.”
The question came a day after BuzzFeed News quoted a Republican supporter as saying that Bush was “evolving” on marriage equality.
David Aufhauser, who recently co-hosted a fundraiser for Bush in Virginia, said of Bush: “His thinking [on marriage equality] appears to have evolved.”
The report also cited a number of Bush hires who support LGBT rights to bring home its point.
Seems to me, Bush has finished *evolving* and has come out his same ol' anti-gay self.

The company had initially announced a ban on “sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video”, with just a few exceptions for content which offered “a substantial public benefit, for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts”.
It planned to enforce the ban from 23 March, when any user with offending material still on their blog would be forced to turn it into a private site.
Now, the company has backed down. Jessica Pelegio, a social product support manager at Google, wrote: “We've had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.
“So rather than implement this change, we've decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.”
“Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as ‘adult’ so that they can be placed behind an ‘adult content’ warning page,” she added.
Personally, I'd like to thank many of you who took the time to write me wondering what was going to happen with the blog.
Obviously, the religitards were getting to the powers that be at google and it wasn't until you and myself and fellow bloggers made OUR voices heard, that those very same powers that be, backed away from what would have most certainly hurt their company far more than a few upset puritanical dipshits.
Two men who ran a camp linked to “gay conversions” have been found guilty of murder, child abuse and assault.
Three teenage boys died after attending the Echo Wild Game Rangers military-style camp which was intended to “make men” out of teenage boys. Raymond Buys died after two weeks in hospital on life support.
He was beaten, starved and forced to eat his own feces at the camp in 2011. He had brain damage, a broken arm, severe dehydration, and cigarette burns all over his body. His mother was told his chances of survival were “virtually zero”.
Alex de Koker and Michael Erasmus beat Buys with a spade, sticks and a pipe, forced him to eat soap powder and feces and chained him to a bed when he tried to escape.
His mother, Wilna Buys said “I have mixed emotions, but I’m happy that they were both found guilty and that it’s come to an end.
“I think he’s sitting and smiling down on us and is proud of everything we've done. It wasn't easy to be here all the time, but we made a promise to Raymond.”
Your teenage son is dead, you and your husband murdered him, all in the name of your religion.
Your sons last days, his last thoughts even, was a living hell, one his parents forced him into.
This is why reparative therapy must be banned and exactly why unrepentant parents, who even after the murder of their son, still think they were doing the right thing, shouldn't have been allowed to force that decision on a juvenile.
As far as I'm concerned, you should have been on trial with those men.

Republican Faggot Shill Dan Innis Takes On Leadership Roll So He Can Help The GOP Raise Money To Deny LGBT Citizens Their Rights
“I am pleased that Dan has agreed to dedicate his time and considerable talents to helping Republicans raise the resources that we need to compete with the Democrats.“I am proud to have Dan on my team and look forward to his contributions to the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.”
Yup, Innis is queer married has kids, but believes lining his bank account supersedes gay rights.
Lets hope he and his husband are the first shoved into the ovens when the teabaggers take full control of this country and institute the Christian version of sharia law.
The North Carolina Senate on Wednesday approved a bill which seeks to allow magistrates to opt out from marrying gay and lesbian couples.
Gay couples began marrying in North Carolina in October after the state's ban on gay marriage was struck down by a federal court.
The bill allows magistrates to opt-out from performing marriages by citing a “sincerely held religious objection.”
The measure's chief sponsor, Senate leader Phil Berger, a Republican, vowed to introduce the legislation after a magistrate in his district decided to resign after 12 years rather than marry gay couples.
Berger organized a rally for John Kallam Jr. outside the Rockingham County Courthouse.
“Forcing Magistrate Kallam to give up his religious liberties to save his job is just wrong,” Berger said at the time.
Wednesday's 32-16 vote was largely along party lines, with Republicans mostly in favor of the legislation.
At least six other states are considering similar measures.
No Mr. Berger, homosexuality isn't against the law, despite Mr. Kallam's religious beliefs, they are just that, HIS beliefs, we are protected constitutionally from religious persecution.
If the state wants to protect him and others like him from prosecution for failing to do their job, then the state must also guarantee that it's gay citizens can walk into any court house and not be subjected to his and others self righteous religious views and most importantly, be issued their fucking license!
