Andy Towle on Fierce Advocacy and marriage

TowleRoad:

The White House’s statement on the Prop 8 victory, as I noted yesterday in the “reactions” post, delivered by spokesman Ben LaBolt:
“The President has spoken out in opposition to Proposition 8 because it is divisive and discriminatory. He will continue to promote equality for LGBT Americans.”

An odd statement from a President whose official position on marriage is not equality, and whose Justice Department continues to aggressively defend DOMA in the courts.
