Democrats took another step towards adding gender-segregated marriage to their party’s plank. This will create unequal family situations for children, encouraging some to grow up without mothers, while others will be deprived of their fathers. Democrats call this gender imbalance “marriage equality.”
The next hurdle for this anti-gender movement will come at the Democratic national convention in September in North Carolina.
The national Democratic Party's platform committee endorsed gay marriage Saturday for the first time and called for the repeal of a federal law that recognizes marriage as between a man and a woman.
The committee, meeting in downtown Detroit, let stand the work of a separate group that drafted the platform two weeks ago in Minneapolis. The platform is a broad statement of the party's priorities on the economy, social issues, and national defense and next goes to the national convention in North Carolina in September.
Scott Dibble, a committee member and a state senator from Minnesota, said that support for gay marriage can attract new voters.
"Young people are looking for a political home right now. This has become a defining moral question of our time," said Dibble, who is gay.
Will Dibble’s prediction come true? Are young voters passionate enough about gender-segregation to take the time to go to the polls and support anti-gender marriage?
Or will young Americans be more attracted to the Romney/Ryan ticket, which supports pro-gender marriage?
We’ll find out in November which one wins: gender integration or segregation.
