HRC RESPONDS TO STATE OF THE UNION
Statement of Steven Fisher, Communications Director
Once again, President Bush contradicts himself.
President Bush said that government should never undermine family values and family responsibilities but, in the very next breath, called for passage of a constitutional amendment that undermines GLBT families and denies them the same responsibilities of all others.
President Bush, in his first State of the Unionof his second term, chose the divisive path of supporting the narrow interests of extremist elements of his party over uniting the American people.
Sadly, once again he valued the extremism of a few over the greater good of protecting all Americans, including GLBT families whose well-being are jeopardized by this proposal.
