Via Akaczynski1, 2007 Mitt Romney on adoption by same-sex couples:
Let the courts decide.
Mitt Romney channeled the social conservative positions of Rick Santorum during last night’s GOP presidential debate in Arizona, arguing that religious organizations should be allowed to discriminate against gay and lesbian couples in the adoption process and claiming that children deserve a home “with a mother and a father” [...]
During an August GOP debate, Romney pledged to institute a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as a between a man and a woman “because I believe the ideal place to raise a child is in a home with a mom and dad.” He doubled down on that position during a town hall in New Hampshire in October ... “the ideal setting to raise a child for a society like ours is where there is a man and a woman.”
2012 Romney is walking a fine line between letting the states decide and letting Ricky Santorum decide.
