John McCain is leading the filibuster against the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” “repeal” legislation in the Senate (it’s not an actual repeal, but we’ll leave that for another time). Today, Cindy McCain joined a number of celebrities in a video about gay youth suicide and bullying. Mrs. McCain’s part of the video condemned DADT and then accused our government of sending bullies a message that what they do is okay.
The woman basically accused her husband of sharing the blame for gay kids killing themselves.
I’m astonished. And impressed as hell.
Our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future.
They can’t serve our country openly.
VARIETY OF SPEAKERS:
What’s worse, these laws that legislate discrimination teach bullies that what they’re doing is acceptable.
Our government treats the LGBT community like second class citizens, why shouldn’t they?
