    AP Source: Dems move to formally back gay marriage - Boston.com

    It annoys me when journalists do not name their sources.



    The original source of this news is The Washington Blade:

    I guess Barney Frank is the anonymous source in the AP story?



    The GOP's unbroken record of supporting the rights of second class citizens is now officially over.

    As the OG (Original GOPer) said, "Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal..."

    Except for the ones who walk funny and have limp wrists, according to the new GOP gangstas.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil rights war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.

    I don't see the potential for a significant uptick of voters from such a proclamation.

    I do see how you could lose ones who otherwise supported you.

    I guess there won't be any contributions from Chick Fil A.

    That this must be a plank in any party’s platform at all is what’s troubling.

    And there should be nothing ‘controversial’ about a major American political party in compliance with Constitutional case law.

    Exactly.

    Those who are in favour of marriage equality are already on the Democratic side and those against it are on the Republican side. I can't imagine this decision does anything more than fire up "conservative" voters.

    Believe it or not there is a significant segment of our population who could care less what you do in your personal life but feel marriage is between a man and a woman.

    Acceptance of homosexuality sure feels forced on folks these days.

    There is fallout from that.
