Evan Wolfson: 'Kowtowing to anti-gay prejudice is not just bad policy, it is bad politic'

by Jeremy Hooper

Exactly:

Screen Shot 2011-11-16 At 3.11.32 PmIt’s appalling to see Republican candidates for president trooping to an event sponsored by an anti-gay group such as the so-called National Organization for Marriage (NOM). Presidential candidates should be working to bring our country together to tackle the big problems we confront, not pandering to the low agendas of organizations seeking to divide Americans and attack families. Ironically, kowtowing to anti-gay prejudice is not just bad policy, it is bad politic. A solid majority of Americans, including 59 percent of independent voters and 70 percent of voters between 18-34 years old, support the freedom to marry. Anti-gay groups like NOM are out of step with Americans who understand that government has no business putting obstacles in the path of any of us, gay or non-gay, seeking to take care of our loved ones and make ends meet in these tough economic times."
