No Gay Marriage Then No GOP

As we head into the New Hampshire GOP presidential
primary all the candidates are against marriage equality.
Jon Huntsman who is trailing in the polls however does
support civil unions for our LGBT community. Obama
also supports civil unions but is still evolving on gay
marriage. However as he evolves his administration has
introduced The Respect of Marriage Act that would repeal
the Defense of Marriage Act which denies legally married
gay couples 1,138 federal rights of marriage including a
hefty average of $5000 more in their annual federal taxes
than heterosexual married couples pay. It’s early in the
2012 presidential campaign so lets hope that the 2012
Republican & Democratic candidates all learn to embrace
that Gay Rights are Human Rights & Human Rights are
Gay Rights
.
Update: All 9 members of the Democratic congressional
delegation from New Jersey have signed a letter urging
their colleagues in the state legislature to support the
marriage equality bill being introduced this week.

Like being a woman, like being a racial religious tribal or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights.

In reality, gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths; they are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes, and whether we know it or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends and our neighbors.

Those who advocate for expanding the circle of human rights were and are on the right side of history, and history honors them… We are called once more to make real the words of the universal declaration. Let us be on the right side of history.
