A new Log Cabin Republicans website
aims to highlight Republicans who are against Proposition 8 –
California's constitutional amendment which would once again ban
gay marriage in the State.
The recently launched website features
quotes, bios and interviews of prominent Republicans who oppose
Proposition 8 including: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mary Cheney,
San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, Redondo Beach Mayor Mike Gin, comedian
Dennis Miller and Desperate Housewives Producer Marc Cherry.
Councilpeople from various cities are also included.
“I'm wishing everyone good luck with
their marriages and I hope that California's economy is booming
because everyone is going to come here and get married,” Governor
Arnorld Schwarzenegger said at an event in San Francisco shortly
after the State Supreme Court's gay marriage decision.
“I'm a moderate in some degree
because I have wildly swinging opinions, but through some sort of
ideological Feng Shui they end up in the middle,” comedian Dennis
Miller told Politico. “Some swing far to the left, others
to the far right. I'm for the war, but I'm also for gay marriage.”
San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, in a
touching press conference, announced he was in favor of gay marriage
in 2007. He attributed his change of heart to the idea that
“separate is not equal.” And finished by saying, “I have close
family members and friends who are members of the gay and lesbian
community. Those folks include my daughter, Lisa.”
The website claims that Mary Cheney, an
openly gay Republican and daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney,
contributed $3,000 to the No On Prop
