Stonewall Democrats: Clinton and Obama Clarify Positions on Morality
Saturday Mar 17, 2007
The National Stonewall Democrats recognized statements issued on Thursday by Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Barack Obama (D-IL) which clearly stated that sexual orientation is not linked to morality.
The organization also urged all Democratic candidates to speak positively on issues that impact lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Americans within their campaigns and before the American public.
“We appreciate the strong statements from Senators Clinton and Obama following the aggressive campaign undertaken by our members, donors and staff over the last several days,” said Jo Wyrick, Executive Director. “Most Democrats understand that morality isn’t derived from sexual orientation or gender identity. Democrats should also understand that our families must no longer be seen as a liability on the campaign trail, but as positive partners within the American community. Our members aggressively communicated that message to both campaigns this past week. We now look forward to helping all of our Democratic candidates further engage our community and better vocalize their support for all Americans, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
