quote of the day

"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."
