Trump on Marriage Equality

This is old news by now but it’s new to me, I hadn’t yet seen him confronted with the question yet.

Donald Trump has said on more than one occasion that his "favorite" book is the Bible. He has been married three times, that’s twice remarried. Here’s how his “favorite” book defines remarriage:

-Mark 10:11 -- Jesus: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her."
-Luke 16:18 -- Jesus: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery"
-Matthew 19:9 -- Jesus: "I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."
For the record, “traditional marriage” is code speak for straight love being superior to gay love. CNN interview on June 28, 2015:
JAKE TAPPER Let’s talk about same-sex marriage. You said a few years ago that you were evolving on the issue, where are you?
HETEROSUPREMACIST UNREPENTANT ADULTERER DONALD TRUMP (according to his own beliefs): I’m for traditional marriage, it is changing rapidly.
TAPPER: But what do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?’
TRUMP: Well, they have a very good point, but you know, I’ve been a very hard working person, actually I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now and my two wives were very good and I don’t blame them, but I was working twenty two hours a day…
TAPPER: I’m not asking you to explain your divorces.
TRUMP: I blame myself because my business was so powerful for me…
TAPPER: But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man who are married?
TRUMP: I really don’t say anything, I’m just for traditional marriage.
As with presidential candidate Ben Carson, they say his appeal is that he is not part of the political process, but I don’t believe for a second that the Bible is his “favorite” Book, nor do I think he really cares whether gay couples can legally wed or not (he must have gay friends), but he has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s a misogynist and a racist (“Mexicans are rapists and murderers). It is my belief that he’s just playing to the amoral base of the Republican party, but we can now add heterosupremacist to his list of themed hate speech.
