LGBT’s endorsing Hillary

I found this list published in the Advocate in June. It’s the Hillary LGBT steering commitee…

As president, the statement says, Clinton would work with the community to make sure that all Americans in committed relationships have equal economic benefits and rights (so far, she backs civil unions); work to end discrimination in adoption laws; put an end to what she has called “the failed policy” of “don’t ask, don’t tell”; and sign into law expanded federal hate-crimes legislation and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) if they are approved by Congress. (Kerry Eleveld, The Advocate)

  1. Hillary is a radical Methodist Christian who has no interest in advancing the LGBT cause. Her posturing is a matter of convenience and a tool for LGBT voting-bloc acquisition. Do not be fooled by her duplicity and pandering.

  2. Which version of Methodist is she? I know the Methodist church almost split completely in the early 80’s between liberal and conservative factions. I remember they were “fighting” over female ministers and songs and more. The liberal branch was fairly progressive. Any Methodists out there that can clarify?

    martin here, actually…imfao, Hillary Clinton is a moderate Republican, not a Democrat, and has signalled that she would not pursue the many crimes of the Bush junta, just as Bill dropped all congressional investigations of Bush I and Reagan, and thus set us up for the Bush junta….beware of Hillary! Just because she’s a woman, doesn’t mean she’s cool!
