Where is Scott Walker on Counterfeit Marriage?

The Daily Caller has an interesting article on where 2016 presidential candidate Scott Walker may be on the issue of counterfeit marriage and the homosexual agenda.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Wisconsin’s first lady publicly distanced herself from her husband over the issue of gay marriage. What is more, it’s clear that Scott Walker’s views are out of step with his entire family on the issue.

Consider this excerpt regarding the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling:

“That was a hard one,” Tonette said, pausing and choosing her words carefully. “Our sons were disappointed. . . . I was torn. I have children who are very passionate [in favor of same-sex marriage], and Scott was on his side very passionate.”

“It’s hard for me because I have a cousin who I love dearly — she is like a sister to me — who is married to a woman, her partner of 18 years,” she said.

(Walker’s son acted as a witness to the gay marriage of Walker’s wife’s cousin.)

Now, just because a man’s wife is liberal in some areas doesn’t necessarily mean the husband will also be liberal in those areas. After all, there are probably almost no married couples out there who agree on every issue.

But as the article points out (and as every married man knows all too well), “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” It takes a very dedicated man to be fully committed to values and principles his wife doesn’t share-or may even oppose.

Just how committed to obeisance to the homosexual agenda is Walker’s wife?  How committed is Scott Walker to marriage and freedom?  How much influence might Scott Walker’s wife have on him and his commitment to traditional American values?

I’m afraid we don’t have solid answers to these questions-at least not that I’m aware of.

But if you are committed to marriage, freedom, and the traditional American values that produced the greatest nation in history, can you really take a chance on it, when the woman sleeping with the potential president may be influencing him in the wrong direction?  I’d have to see very firm rhetoric in the right direction, with record to back it up, before I could take a chance on such a prospect, especially if there were more solid and reliable options available.

The next president of the United States is going to have to be very bold and aggressive in favor of traditional American values, if we are to steer this nation away from the deadly liberal abyss we are nearing at break-neck speed.  The next president cannot be passive. He cannot squander the opportunity as George W. Bush did (we could have had a marriage protection amendment during his tenure).  The next president will have to push back HARD against the Left, and be fully committed to not just defending America against the Leftist onslaught, but completely dedicated to turning back the tide and regaining the precious ground we have lost under Barack Obama and a feckless “Republican” congress.

As good a job as Scott Walker has done in Wisconsin against the Leftist unionists, I don’t think he’s the kind of leader America MUST have now if we are to survive.  And given that we have more reliable conservatives like Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal in the race, we don’t have to settle for less than the best.

    This is a case of being “unequally yoked” that is untenable for a Christian. If a man cannot manage his own household, he is unstable.

      How would you like him to “manage” his wife, exactly?
