Giuliani Reverses On Civil Unions

Rudy Giuliani has reversed his previous position on civil unions, saying he is opposed to yesterday's New Hampshire civil union vote. His campaign issued this statement: "Mayor Giuliani believes marriage is between one man and one woman.Domestic partnerships are the appropriate way to ensure that people are treated fairly. In this specific case the law states same sex civil unions are the equivalent of marriage and recognizes same sex unions from outside states. This goes too far and Mayor Giuliani does not support it."

Giuliani had previously said that he supported civil unions but that "marriage should be reserved for a man and a woman." I wonder how his good friends, the gay couple he stayed with during his divorce, feel about this. What a douchebag.
UPDATE: Sirius OutQ host Michelangelo Signorile has posted an old clip of Giuliani supporting civil unions on his show. Listen to the clip, recorded in 2003.
