    Clinton pledges partnership with gay activists

    March 5, 2007
    FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    EXCERPT

    WASHINGTON -- Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton told the nation's leading gay rights group in an unpublicized speech that she wants a partnership with gays if elected president.

    Clinton also said she opposes the ''don't ask, don't tell'' policy regarding gays in the military that was instituted during her husband's presidency.

    ''I am proud to stand by your side,'' Clinton said in a keynote speech Friday to the Human Rights Campaign. Neither Clinton's campaign nor her Senate office made any announcement that she would be making the Friday address.

    Asked twice at a Monday campaign stop in Iowa why she did not publicize her speech to the group, Clinton said: ''You'll have to ask my campaign.''

    In the speech, Clinton joked that she shares the same initials as the group, and pledged to maintain the same close working relationship that last year helped defeat the federal amendment which would have banned same-sex marriage.

    ''I want you to know that this is exactly the kind of partnership we will have when I am president,'' Clinton told the group. ''I want you to know that just as you always have an open door to my Senate office, you will always have an open door to the White House and together we can continue this journey.''

    Wasn't she just in church, saying how much she identified with Black Baptists ?

    Some voters need a remedial course in pandering.

    Oops, there goes the right-wing religious vote....not that she had it. Obama probably has most of the black vote anyway. Seems like the gay vote is still up for grabs.

    How to resist?

    How to recognize.

    Say, Daisy, would it be inappropriate to ask you if you are a born-again regenerated child of God ?

    I would hope that if elected president, Hillary Clinton would work with all segments of our society. After all she would be the president of all Americans, regardless of what they believed.

    I heard that. Cracked me up. She used the same rhythmic speech pattern of many black evangelists. :laugh:

    You got it right. Pandering is the word. Obvious pandering , at that.

    Now she's pandering to one of the smallest of voting blocks, gays. She really should go after athiests.

    That's a much larger group. Most of them vote democrat just as blacks do. A little pandering there could go a long way. Might even snare some erstwhile Christians.

    Does it have anything to do with Hillary or Gays? If so, ask away; if not, get another thread closed.

    PMs are usually more appropriate for personal questions unrelated to the topic at hand.

    In order for me to talk with you here, I require a statement of faith. Your salvation means more to me than this thread being closed. And you not answering immediately leads me to think you may be misrepresenting yourself. It's a simple yes or no question. Can you answer, for me ? I promise, I'll never ask you again.

    ***biting tongue*** I will not be bullied by you. ***biting tongue***

    Once more, PMs are usually more appropriate for personal questions unrelated to the topic at hand.

    Bye-by, Bro. :wavey: Considering the way you speak to me and, worse, about me, your shunning is a good thing. :)

    Anyhoo, I wonder if Sen. Clinton will win the primary. Early frontrunners often don't.

    I'm really thinking we'll see an Obama nomination, but I could be wrong.

    Just keep praying for her. Many saints prayed for me many years before my conversion.

    I agree

    As a moderator I agree. Daisy is not the subject matter and it is by the rules that we post according to the thread's subject matter. Feel free to PM or contact in another matter if the issue keeps from communicating here; otherwise, there is no need to post.

    I too agree salvation is the most important issue, but it is just not the thread's subject.

    Just keeping the board rules in play.
    Thank you,
    Phillip

    Regarding the topic, I hope our next President, whomever it will be, doesn't pander to the homosexual agenda to buy their support. It would not be good for America. Buying votes will require a payment.

    Homosexual conduct needs to be held up to light of the truth as written in our Holy Bible. It should not be rightly ignored, excused, validated, condoned, nor approved. It is wrong and we'd be wise to choose leaders that know that and aren't afraid to proclaim it for what it is.

    At the same time we'd better not be too proud in pointing out the sin because, last time I checked, the same word of God convicts us all to be sinners.

    On, the separate point, I think we need to be careful about questioning the salvation of one another on this board.

    We can freely - within respectable limits that are challenging at times - disagree on the topics but, as I understand it, only the Lord can see into our hearts and only He has the power to change what lies therein.
