Hillary Clinton Announces Her Support For Marriage Equality

Written by

How Hillary Clinton could have to voice and to fight so much in favour of the LGBT community in the United States and also in front of the United Nations while being openly against marriage equality? I waited for that since years, and finally Hillary Clinton "changes her mind" and announces her support for gay marriage!

According to Associated Press, the Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an online video released Monday that gays and lesbians deserve "the rights of citizenship." She says "that includes marriage."

But it is obviously that sounds completely fake. It is just a change of course for future elections.

Recently, her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who has supported marriage equality for several years, asked the Supreme Court to repeal DOMA, the law he had signed in 1996, and which defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

He said that the Defense of marriage act is 'incompatible' with the constitution. When he signed the law, he thought it would protect homosexual people against discrimination but, as the Daily Mail reports, Clinton said in an op-ed published in the Washington Post, he now realizes that the law not only discriminates against gays but also provides an excuse for others to discriminate against them.
