John McCain’s Respect

Today on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, John McCain said on the topic of gay marriage:

I think people should be able to enter into legal agreements, and I think that that is something that we should encourage, particularly in the case of insurance and other areas - decisions that have to be made. I just believe in the unique status of marriage between a man and woman, and I know that we have a respectful disagreement on that issue.

(emphasis added)

Senator McCain, however, has gone out of his way to cozy up to spiritual leaders who are anything but respectful toward gay marriage and homosexuals in general. Take a look at the tape:

These people - McCain’s “spiritual advisors” - believe those who violently attack homosexuals shouldn’t be charged with hate crimes, and that homosexuals “will always be an abomination.” Does that sound like “respectful disagreement?”

It is hard to swallow rhetoric about “respectful disagreements” when Senator McCain is actively seeking the endorsement of people who are promoting hate and violence.

Senator McCain is not a maverick or a straight-talker. He’s the epitome of a spineless politician.
