Hillary Clinton TBT: ‘Marriage Is Between A Man And A Woman’

A Hillary Clinton TBT message has been making the rounds on Friday via Facebook, and it’s casting a shadow over her celebration of the same-sex marriage Supreme Court victory.

First, I’ll start with Clinton’s reaction to the momentous decision of five Supreme Court Justices to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

Via Twitter.

As you can see, it was quite the celebration, but it was also something that she did not support while her husband was in office.

First, the Hillary Clinton TBT meme that has conservative America, in particular, buzzing.

The Wall Street Journal dug up the full quote from the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic nomination in a piece entitled, “Hillary Clinton’s Long Road to Supporting Gay Marriage.”

“Her evolution has largely tracked public opinion,” writes WSJ’s Tim Hanrahan. “As the country has gotten more comfortable with same sex marriage, Mrs. Clinton’s opposition has softened.”

In 1996, he points out, her husband, President Bill Clinton, signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

So there is no saying that Hillary held a different view from her husband, he also includes this quote, which she gave while running for the U.S. Senate in 2000 for the state of New York.

“Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.”

And here’s some video from 2004.

Nevertheless, Clinton has been a pretty strong supporter of marriage equality during the campaign trail.

But what do you think, readers? Is the Hillary Clinton TBT attack fair? Is Mrs. Clinton just saying what she thinks everyone wants to hear, or is it possible her support is legitimately held? Sound off in the comments section.
