No Gay Marriage Then No GOP

By Charlotte Robinson, January 09, 2012
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.
