Democrats will officially embrace same-sex marriage as part of party platform
Daily Mail UK ^ | 30 July 2012 | SNEJANA FARBEROV

Posted on 07/30/2012 4:28:07 PM PDT by Kimmers

The Democratic leadership is moving to include a motion in support of same-sex marriage in the official party platform for the first time in history.

According to a Democratic official, the party's 15-person platform drafting committee voted to include language backing gay marriage during a weekend meeting in Minneapolis. A source at the meeting told Politico the decision to endorse gay marriage was ‘not controversial.’

Milestone decision: The Democratic Party has decided to include a pro-gay marriage motion in its official platform for the first time in history The language will not become official until the party’s full Platform Committee meets on August 10 in Detroit. Democratic delegates will then have to formally approve the platform during the party’s national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, which opens on September 3.

The BEST plan for the Republicans is to go into the BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS and tell them just what their Dems think of GAY MARRIAGE.

...of course they won’t do that, even though it would be a WINNING STRATEGY, just as it was when blacks in California made an INFORMED choice and, rightly, voted down gay marriage.

With a gay president promising insiders he is going to come out of the closet if he wins, this isn’t surprising in the least. The Democratic Party is so gay. It’s hard to find a Democrat that doesn’t act queer.

This will thrill millions of American “moderates” and all liberals so they can return Obama for another term. The people will never figure it out.

They put it out as a stalking horse and the verdict is in; they get more money from the gays than the blacks they lose.

The blacks will vote for O anyway, gay marriage or not. Why should the Dems really care what black folks think? They are well secured on the plantation.

This is great. They’re pandering to 2% of the population, a demographic that disgusts and repels the other 98%.

Great work, Demwits™*!

Well, that one is more rotten than the rest but to be sure whoever stands on that platform will fall through.

“Are dems just bat shinola crazy or so arrogant they figure they can ignore reality?”

Yes to both and I think if they come out of the closet with this platform, pun intended, some Dem. voters may vote for the Republican candidate or I could see Dem. voters staying home......I think the left assumes because the media and Hollywood wants gay marriage, the rest of America wants the same thing.......

Ran across this from http://sanctifiedchurchrevolution.blogspot.com/2012/05/new-black-panthers-are-disappointed-in.html :

New Black Panthers Are Disappointed in Obama: Will The True Black Church Stand Up Against Sin?

God's expectations is being ignored by both Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton and we as the body of Christ should not be happy about it. It is time for the saints of God of all races to combat the lie that homosexuality is identical to racial issues when it comes to civil rights. However, we cannot agree with the New Black Panther Party to hate white people, because there are some white people whom are righteous and share the same notion against homosexuality as many of us whom are black. Now, is the time for the black church to raise their fist up in the air for Jesus Christ and join other races whom do not approve of same-sex marriage nor President Obama giving power to the homosexual community over the saints of God whom desire to follow and obey God's Word.

Will the true black church stand up for Jesus Christ and be strong like the New Black Panther Party to publicly denounce President Obama? Will the true black church stand up for Jesus Christ and join other Christians of various races whom desire to hold onto the tradition of marriage, between one man and one woman? Will the true black church stand up for Jesus Christ and separate from all black hypocrites whom claim to love God but agree with same-sex marriage while supporting President Obama? We can love them, but we can no longer fellowship with them, for they are a danger to our souls.

Gadzooks! Am I reading this... correctly???

If I am, I am agreeing with the New Black Panther Party... that means...
