As the public debate over gay marriage progresses, some prominent conservatives are endorsing same-sex unions and warning that the Republican Party will inevitably be forced to do the same.
But it seems one well-known conservative is less-than-definitive on the issue and, in fact, is claiming that he doubts the GOP platform will ever officially back gay matrimonies.
On Sunday, former Republican National Committee (RNS) Chairman Ed Gillespie appeared on “Fox New Sunday,” where he said that the media have painted conservatives in a negative light over traditional stances on marriage, Raw Story reports.
Krauthammer Warns: Gay Marriage Case Could Lead to All-Out ‘Assault on Religion’

Syndicated columnist and political commentator Charles Krauthammer said this week that the gay marriage case before the Supreme Court could be the first step to an “assault on religion.”
“It gets really sticky,” Krauthammer said on “Inside Washington.” “If the court were to decide that to deny same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, then you got Georgetown University – a Jesuit university [that has] married student housing. It’s a Catholic university. So it says it’s only going to allow heterosexuals, it will get sued. It will become an assault on religion. And the religions, which I think are sincere in their beliefs, are going to be under assault and under attack.”
After it was pointed out that same-sex marriage is already legal in Washington, D.C., where Georgetown is located, Krauthammer said the issue would be national.
“It will be sued everywhere in the country if it’s declared to be a constitutional right, because it would imply that anybody who opposes it does it only out of bigotry, for no other reason,” he said.
