WEBB: No, Iím not. It is a bad amendment. The second paragraph is extremely vague.
Q: Are you for gay marriage?
WEBB: I am for civil unions and Iím opposed to the amendment.
Q: Are you for civil unions?
MILLER: I support civil unions and I also oppose the amendment. This is the first time Virginiaís have ever considered an amendment which would limit the rights of individuals. It is a bad idea and I oppose it.
Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and a few leaders of the pro-life movement call me an unacceptable presidential candidate. Why? Because I donít pander to them, because I donít ascribe to their failed philosophy that money is our message.
We embrace the fine members of the religious conservative community. But that does not mean that we will pander to their self-appointed leaders. [These leaders] are corrupting influences on religion and politics. They shame our faith, our party and our country.
Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Robertson or Falwell on the right.
