"We Republicans have often found ourselves on the wrong side of civil rights struggles since the 1960s, but there was a reason that Martin Luther King, Jr.'s father is said to have supported Republicans.
Republicans were historically the party ever-expanding freedom to disenfranchised minorities, from newly liberated slaves to giving women the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony was a Republican. By supporting the [American Foundation for Equal Rights] trial we have an opportunity to establish our historic credibility on civil rights issues once again.
But we should support marriage equality because it is the right thing to do."– margaret hoover
