The Marriage Question

Here is the question asked by a lesbian couple from Brooklyn and the answers from the Democratic presidential candidates during the CNN/YouTube debate:

And again by a Black Baptist minister from North Carolina:

Most of the answers are the tortuous attempts to say that same-sex couples deserve “equal treatment” but not marriage. Gravel and Kucinich are they only two candidates on record as supporting marriage equality.

    As a gay man, I like what Edwards stands for, because I’m looking beyond just gay issues. I feel if a candidate can meet us half way, that’s fine.
    You’re never going to get a someone openly supporting gay marraige, because they have no chance of winning on that platform. That’s why Kucinich and Gravel can talk about it. They have no chance, so what does it matter. I think Gravel is a psycho anyway.
