NAACP Endorses Same Sex Marriage

From MetroWeekly:

The NAACP Constitution affirmatively states our objective to ensure the “political, education, social and economic equality” of all people. Therefore, the NAACP has opposed and will continue to oppose any national, state, local policy or legislative initiative that seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the Constitutional rights of LGBT citizens. We support marriage equality consistent with equal protection under the law provided under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Further, we strongly affirm the religious freedoms of all people as protected by the First Amendment.

    Hooray!! Straight, uncompromising, to the point and not wiggle room! YES! Now it is time for the black churches to move into the 21st century (kicking and screaming, I’m sure!)

    I wonder of their decision to do this was informed by NOM’s wedge strategy.
