Freedom to Marry recently announced that they were going to start pushing the Democrats to actually live up to their rhetoric on equality. If the Democrats really support the full equality of Gay and Lesbian citizens then marriage equality should be an official part of the Democratic Party Platform. And yesterday Freedom to Marry scored quite the get when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced that she fully supports the inclusion of marriage equality to the party platform! Unfortunately, in the face of such bold moves, our so-called “fierce advocate” continues to cower in the White House. Metro Weekly reports: “And the leader of the party, President Obama, opposed marriage equality in the 2008 campaign. He said in December 2010 that his position on marriage equality was ‘evolving’ but that he still ‘struggle[s]’ with it. His press secretary, Jay Carney, said this past week of Obama’s position, ‘You know his position, where it stands now, on the issue of same-sex marriage, so I really don’t have much to add on that.’” Metro Weekly continued to send several requests for comments regarding the president’s position on the Democratic Party Platform and marriage equality to no avail.
