President Obama Leads the Democratic Party into an Historic Step for Justice For All!
In the spirit of Harry Truman, President Barack Obama has led the way to create a new ethical tone to our national conversation. Whether your moral compass is sourced by the American Constitution, a Holy Book, or just plain common decency; they all share the bedrock principle that everyone is entitled to equal treatment.
The president’s opinion has recently evolved from tepid support of equal rights for gays to flat out support for today’s most controversial civil rights issue, gay marriage. While folks like Pat Robertson predictably decries the move, calling it “a death wish” for the Democratic Party, the Chief Executive has opened the door for a sea change in the national conversation. This bold move comes with political consequences but, like his model, Harry Truman, President Obama did the right thing and now his courage is beginning to pay tangible dividends.
