Vice President Joe Biden commended the LGBT community for their “courage” in fighting to put sexual orientation at the forefront of our lives.
Cape Cod Times:
Describing Provincetown as a place of "courage," Vice President Joe Biden wound up a two-day fundraising trip to Cape Cod with a stop at the place the Pilgrims first landed.
On Sunday, he was at the Pilgrim Monument and Museum to raise more money and the spirits of a crowd of nearly 300 people.
The cost of tickets to Sunday's invitation-only fundraiser ranged from $250 for general admission to $25,000, which bought a photo opportunity with the vice president.
In his nearly hourlong speech, Biden touched on a multiplicity of topics but focused mainly on civil rights.
"Many of you have advanced civil rights at great expense," he said during his visit to a town long recognized for its lesbian, gay and transgender residents and visitors. "If I had to use one adjective to describe this community it'd be courage. You have summoned the courage to speak out, to come out. We owe you."
The vice president said the efforts of the LGBT community have not only advanced their own civil rights, but the "civil rights of every straight American.""You are freeing the soul of the American people," Biden said, earning loud applause from the crowd.
Why do they call segregating genders in marriage a “civil right”? How is depriving children of both a mother and a father a “civil right”?
What about the civil rights of children?
What about children equality?
