“Our mission is to stop the hate and ignorance that comes at the LGBTQ community and straight allies and spread the love. In the long run, our mission is to spread the right for the people to marry the person whom they love.” ~ Marriage Equality Ohio
This post comes on the heels of Ohio Senator Rob Portman’s announcement today that his son is gay. As reported by the New York Times, “Mr. Portman’s revelation makes him the only sitting Republican senator to publicly support giving gay men and lesbians the right to marry, and one of the most prominent so far of a growing number of Republicans to publicly oppose their party on the issue.”
Let’s hope Mr. Portman’s announcement and apparent acceptance comes from his true and heart-felt support of gay marriage, and not from a half-hearted attempt to save face with his family or pro-gay political supporters.
