Buzzfeed obtained audio of Congressman Thompson’s toast to the happy couple, during which he bestows the warmest of wishes and says he’s just like any parent who hopes their child finds “that one true love so that they have the opportunity to experience that: someone to grow old with.”Last week Rep.
Thompson voted against the Respect for Marriage Act, legislation that rescinds the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act, and requires the federal government and states to recognize the existing and lawful marriages of same-sex couples.
That bill passed the House with the support of 47 Republicans and all Democrats.Not only did he vote against the bill, Thompson’s press secretary called the bill a “stunt.”“This bill was nothing more than an election-year messaging stunt for Democrats in Congress who have failed to address historic inflation and out of control prices at gas pumps and grocery stores,” Maddison Stone told Thompson’s local Pennsylvania newspaper, the Centre Daily Times.Buzzfeed reports that Congressman Thompson “not only attended the event, but he delivered a speech to celebrate the nuptials, which he called ‘a really good experience.’ Media of the speech was provided to BuzzFeed News by a guest, who asked to remain anonymous.”“I think the word should definitely get out there,” the guest said of their decision for BuzzFeed News to publish it. “These politicians need to be exposed for who they really are.”Below, via Buzzfeed, is the text of Congressman Thompson’s toast at his son’s wedding, and a portion of the audio Buzzfeed obtained, posted by The Recount.
