Megan McCain knows how the GOP can become a more modern party: it should go back to its roots. In her column this week, Meghan argues that Republican resistance to gay marriage goes against conservatives' values, and their own self-interest. Plus! Ronald Reagan was totally pro-gay. Sounds like Meghan's appealing to the GOP's mind and heart.
On her own coming out as a pro-gay-marriage Republican, she writes:
Recently, I seemed to have rocked a few individuals within my party by saying that I am a pro-life, pro-gay-marriage Republican. So if anyone is still confused, let me spell it out for you. I believe life begins at conception and I believe that people who fall in love should have the option to get married. Lest we forget, our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, grants the same rights to everyone in this country—“All men are created equal.” If you think certain rights should not apply to certain people, then you are saying those people are not equal. People may always have a difference of opinion on certain lifestyles, but championing a position that wants to treat people unequally isn't just un-Republican. At its fundamental core, it's un-American.
Does Meghan sound like a true Republican to you?
