Democrats Come Out For Gay Marriage

Finally there’s more positive forward movement in this country for our LGBT community coming from the DNC. The Democrats are officially including gay marriage in their preliminary platform for the fall. The Democratic Party platform drafting committee approved the language over the weekend to endorse gay marriage in addition to other pro-LGBT positions as part of the Democratic Party platform. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who sits on the committee, told the Washington Blade on Monday that the 15-member panel unanimously backed the inclusion of a marriage equality plank after a national hearing over the weekend in Minneapolis. Frank stated, “I was part of a unanimous decision to include it. There was a unanimous decision in the drafting committee to include it in the platform, which I supported, but everybody was for it.” This is why Obama had to evolve about his position on gay marriage because it just wouldn’t fly any other way. Also a Democratic National Committee staffer who’s familiar with the process said the language in the platform approved on Sunday not only backs marriage equality but also rejects DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) & has positive language with regard to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. So now when you receive those daily annoying emails from the DNC asking for money, send them some. Updates to Come…:)
