I thought I would pass this along from FRC.
For the first time in history, the Democratic planks will call for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Democrats put in writing their intent to defeat any effort to weaken Roe v. Wade. This is the face of the Left under Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) who is single-handedly recasting his party in the image of NARAL and the Human Rights Campaign. Although the last Democratic president, Bill Clinton, was the one who signed DOMA into law, Sen. Obama is adamant about repealing it, an act that would leave every state in America at risk of being forced to recognize homosexual marriage.
What has been the general belief of most Democrats they have put into writing. And, unlike the Republicans, they will likely follow through on their platform. God help us all!
