Pres. George H.W. Bush Formally Witnesses Same-Sex Wedding Ceremony!
Though he hasn't made any public statements, it appears that former President George H.W. Bush supports marriage equality. At least that's our take-away now that he's formally witnessed a same-sex wedding ceremony!
Former President George H.W. Bush served as an official witness this past weekend at the Maine wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, co-owners of a Kennebunk general store. Thorgalsen posted a photo of the 41st commander-in-chief signing a set of documents for them at an outdoor celebration: “Getting our marriage license witnessed!”
Bush's rep Jim McGrath confirmed the President and his wife's attendance and says: “They were private citizens attending a private ceremony for two friends.”
You don't have to downplay it, Jim. It's a good thing!!
