White House list of civil rights promise …
Prior to yesterday, approximately one half of the White House Web site’s Civil Rights page was devoted to gay civil rights. It specifically included 8 promises:
Including sexual orientation in America’s already-existing Hate Crimes law.
supporting Civil Unions and explicitly repealing DOMA.
Opposing any constitutional amendment on marriage.
Repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
Expanding Adoption Rights to include gay parents.
Promoting AIDS Prevention.
Empowering women to prevent HIV/AIDS.
As of yesterday, that list of promises was distilled into two sentences, and included only 3 promises:
Supporting Civil Unions, but no longer a mention of repealing DOMA.
Opposing the constitutional amendment.
