Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz expects gender-segregated marriage to be officially approved at this year’s convention in Charlotte, NC in September.
Calling it "marriage equality," Wasserman Schultz believes promoting rights for gender-exclusive couples “is another chapter in our civil-rights history.”
Philadelphia Gay News quoted DWS:
“I expect marriage equality to be a plank in the national party platform. President Obama has declared his support for it ... Now, our platform committee process is a people-powered process. We have a platform committee and the platform is developed by our Democratic activists and the platform committee members, so they’ll go through a process. I hope that marriage equality, and expect that marriage equality, will be part of our platform.”Although the “separate but equal” mentality didn’t work well to ensure school equality for blacks, Democrats now believe it will work to separate genders in marriage?
Since when did separation become equality?
