You can tell the sun is setting on a once-great political party when it starts issuing angry, demonizing mission statements that seem deliberately devised to alienate as many moderate voters as possible.
We still live in a world where too many LGBT people have unconsciously held onto the poisonous, negative beliefs about sexual orientation that our society, churches, and government still force feed us.
It's time to end discrimination based on sexual identity or orientation. That's why I'm committed to equal rights for all Americans, and to repealing the Defense of Marriage Act and Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
While the Obama administration pretends that the law is a concrete inflexible animal incapable of multiple interpretations, LGBT rights in this country continue to languish. Strong leadership is needed.
