HRC Chooses Safety over Advocacy, Endorses Kerry

Someone explain this one to me. The Human Rights Campaign, a leading advocacy group for equal respect and treatments for all Americans regardless of sexual orientation, endorsed John Kerry in his race against Ed O'Reilly.

The single most prominent issue in this arena is that of marriage equality, and Massachusetts is the American leader on it. John Kerry is against marriage equality. O'Reilly is for it.

We'll be stuck with watery Democrats until progressive groups show the backbone to demand better. But the good news is, HRC muckymucks still get to go to the cool cocktail parties.

Excellent post on this one. HRC is an Uncle Tom on Marriage Equality. And John Kerry is a complete JACKASS! John Kerry, Anti-Gay Marriage, Anti-Massachusetts!
