Leading gay-marriage opponent Schubert preps for fight in RI

More evidence Rhode Island could see a real showdown over gay marriage next year, as House Speaker Gordon Fox prepares to call a vote and Senate leaders remain opposed. From The New York Times:

In the roiling state-by-state war over same-sex marriage, the campaign against marriage rights has been masterminded largely by one man.

Frank Schubert, a former corporate public relations executive, ran the $40 million, come-from-behind push for Proposition 8 in California in 2008. He went on to mount successful campaigns to defeat same-sex marriage in Maine and North Carolina. Now, with marriage initiatives on the ballot in Maryland, Minnesota, Washington State and Maine, Mr. Schubert is the chief strategist in all four at once. …

Mr. Schubert already has his eye on the next year or two, when he sees marriage battles brewing in Rhode Island, New Jersey and several other states. And he is talking with potential clients about campaigns to protect religious liberty and fight abortion.

  1. Why does Ms Schubert care what goes on in other states. Religous people are always so quick to judge and hate. I recently saw a bumper sticker that said it all “Gods don’t kill people, people with Gods kill people” sad, but true!
