U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows there is no price to pay for ignoring gays

"Anyone who is still holding out for the Democrats to be the gayest political party is now part of the problem." - Richard Grenell

Richard Grenell writes:
What is needed to pass gay marriage is not a Democratic majority - this past year has proven that to be true - but politicians and judges comfortable enough to ignore what the majority of the voters want and do what is uncomfortable, unpopular - and morally right.

Equal rights should not be debatable and certainly should not be put to a vote of the people. Would we ask the electorate to vote on whether or not Catholics and Protestants should marry? Of course we would not.

But the more that the gay leaders raise money for and give unconditional support to Democratic politicians, the more Democratic leaders are encouraged to take gay marriage voters for granted. Anyone who is still holding out for the Democrats to be the gayest political party is now part of the problem. The more gay marriage is made a political issue the longer gays will be treated as less than and unequal.

Equal rights should not be a partisan political issue -- so why are all gay leaders in one political party?

Nancy Pelosi doesn't have to pay attention to gays because there is no price to pay for ignoring them. READ MORE
