Evolved already? Freedom to Marry puts pointed question to 2012 Dems

by Jeremy Hooper

Freedom to Marry is pushing the Democratic party to add marriage equality to its 2012 platform:

Today, we're excited to launch our Democrats: Say I Do campaign, calling on the national Democratic Party to include a plank supporting gay and lesbian couples’ freedom to marry in the party’s 2012 platform. The platform will be ratified at the Democratic National Convention, which begins September 3 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Democrats: Say I Do [FTM]

A valid, achievable ask. Unlike with the current Republican party, where asking for a winged pony would surely achieve the same result. Sadly.
