Walk the Talk now


Support Full Civil Unions and Federal Rights for LGBT Couples: President Obama supports full civil unions that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples. Obama also believes we need to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and enact legislation that would ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex couples in civil unions and other legally-recognized unions. taken from http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/civil_rights/

When do we want this?

Now! :) ... I think your new Pres is the kind to walk the talk, but now's not the time to relax your guard and let him take on all the responsibility. Still, it must be very inspiring to know the head honcho has a clear notion about what the word equal means in the phrase equal rights. Good stuff! :)

thanks Dar....the new Prez is hung up on the word "marriage" though. He thinks its only a man+woman thing. It's been proven by the NJ Unions if we get any less than marriage, it would still be thought of as less instead of equal. I've read one proposed option is to drop marriage completely and everyone goes with Domestic Partners. LOL, the straights would get the idea then of how we feel.

Hell yeah!! Definatly should start now. Even better, if he puts into effect legalizing gay marriage in all states. But baby steps are fine too.
