Ron Paul Gets Glitter Bombed

Posted By on Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 3:03 PM

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul got a face-full of glitter at a recent campaign event as part of a running protest against those perceived as being opposed to same-sex marriage.

Paul's position isn't expressly against gay marriage, but it is one that the state shouldn't be involved in marriages at all, as it's a religious matter. But he has also said that it should be left to states and local communities to decide whether to recognize marriages. Paul was also a co-sponsor of the Marriage Protection Act, which would have barred federal judges from hearing constitutional challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act.
