From the Christian Post:

The national Democratic Party’s platform committee voted on Saturday to endorse same-sex marriage for the first time, and called for the repeal of a federal law that recognizes marriage as between one man and one woman, to attract new voters.

Response: This had been speculated on for the past two weeks and seemed inevitable since Pres. Obama changed his mind to support same-sex marriage.

Last week over 3,700 Black pastors protested Obama’s new position but obviously that had little affect on the party’s decision. Most polls show huge support in the African-American community for the president’s re-election in spite of this issue and the fact that polls also show that nearly 60% of black Americans support traditional marriage.

The move also shows little concern about seeking and maintaining the support of conservative Christians and Catholics. The party officials must believe that supporting same-sex marriage will not hurt them with their traditional base while seeking the support of ‘new voters’ on this issue. I believe that they may have miscalculated. This issue gives conservative pastors something to talk about without violating laws concerning the support of particular candidates.               *Top
