Even more good news on the marriage front: The Democratic Party will include language endorsing same-sex marriage at its upcoming national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“I was part of a unanimous decision to include it,” Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) told the Washington Blade. “There was a unanimous decision in the drafting committee to include it in the platform, which I supported, but everybody was for it.”
The draft, which hasn’t been made public yet, was decided on by a 15-member platform-drafting committee meeting in Minneapolis on Sunday. Next, the full platform committee will consider the draft in two weeks, and then it will go on to the convention in September. But according to the Blade, it’s a key tenet that won’t be removed.
@Barefoot Accountant: “305. Arab Spring and allowing Fundamentalist Islam to take complete control over Egypt”
You are putting the Arab Spring in a list of reasons why you wont vote for Obama? WTF? Tunisia overthrew their dictator, so omg dont vote for Obama! What do other countries overthrowing their dictators have anything to do with us? (Other than we were usually the ones propping up the dictators in the first place).
“allowing” fundamentalist islam to take over Egypt? Did you ever stop to think that maybe it is not our place to “allow” people to vote a certain way? IT IS NOT OUR COUNTRY. Yeesh, idiots.
(By the way, I am a member of the Pacific Green Party, not an Obama voter…but you could at least come up with REAL reasons instead of spewing bullshit)
