National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Expresses Strong Disagreement with Sen. John Kerry's Position on Amending Massachusetts State Constitution
 

WASHINGTON - February 26 - Statement by Matt Foreman, Executive Director

"We disagree strongly with Sen. Kerry's statement that he would support amending the Massachusetts Constitution to prohibit same sex marriage so long as the amendment 'provides for partnership and civil unions.' As the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court so eloquently stated, 'The history of our nation has demonstrated that separate is seldom, if ever, equal.'

Many times in his public career Sen. Kerry has stepped forward to advocate for equal rights for all Americans. We urge him to do so now, even in the heat of a campaign for the nation's highest office."
