On the site of The Hill we read that during the upcoming Democrat convention, in which they will re-nominate the Evolver-in-Chief, the dems will try to insert a plank in the platform, probably the lower part of the platform, calling for the legalization of same-sex “marriage”.
Reid: Democratic platform will include pro-gay marriage plank
By Alexander Bolton – 05/10/12 01:44 PM ET
The Democrats’ top leader in Congress said Thursday that the party’s platform will soon include a plank calling for the legalization of gay marriage.
“The president’s in favor of it — I’m sure it will be [included],” said Reid. [Even though it’s just the President’s personal opinon. Riiiight.]
Delegates to the Democratic National Convention will meet in Charlotte, N.C., to vote on the party’s platform in early September.
Reid, however, declined to say when or whether he would schedule a vote on legislation approved by the Judiciary Committee to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The law defines marriage as the legal union of a man and a woman and exempts states from having to recognize same-sex marriages certified by other states.
“We’ll be happy to take a look at it — I just don’t know where it is and we have a few other things to do,” Reid said.
He predicted Republicans would block the DOMA repeal.
“We know Republicans won’t let us get on the floor anyway,” he said. “It’s not a Democratic problem, it’s a Republican problem.”
Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to House Republicans last year stating that he and the president had concluded “classifications based on sexual orientation” as applied to same-sex couples under DOMA are unconstitutional.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) [CANON 915! NOW!] has also expressed support for having a plank legalizing gay marriage in the party’s platform.
That said, don’t forget that Pres. Obama is actively undermining the 1st Amendment and attacking the Catholic Church. Don’t forget that even when he tries to misdirect attention.
