Scott Brown’s Positions On DOMA, DADT, ENDA, And More
Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Republican state senator running against Democrat Martha Coakley, Massachusetts’ Attorney General, is vehemently against LGBTQ rights.
Now, I’m sure he had a great reason for posing nude for Cosmo. Heck, he was in great shape! But he has no excuse — aside from being a bigot — for opposing equality.
Here’s Brown’s record on gay civil rights:
Brown, in 2004, voted to define marriage as only between one man and one woman. He also voted against same-sex domestic partnership benefits.
Brown has said “the idea of two women having a child is “just not normal.”
Brown, also recently, received endorsements by two hate groups, and has not renounced their support.
Worst still, we have this via Hearst’s Connecticut News:
Arline Isaacson, Co-Chair of Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus stated, “Scott Brown has voted consistently against the LGBT community throughout his entire career in the Massachusetts legislature. His has not been an incidental opposition. He has voted against us loudly, proudly and unequivocally.
Unfortunately, most people don’t realize just how bad his record is:
-He voted over 25 times against marriage equality, even when 3/4 of our legislature and many MA Republican legislators stood with us.
- He doesn’t support the Transgender Civil Rights & Hate Crimes bill
- He opposes repealing “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”
- He opposes repealing the “Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA)
- He has ridiculed LGBT parents as inadequate
- He supported anti-gay policies of George W Bush & Mitt Romney
But wait, there’s more!
We have confirmation of Brown’s stance on ENDA, DOMA, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and more! Thank you, Massachusetts Family Institute for creating this chart (via KnowThyNeighbor.org.)
