Vice President Biden has taken the bold move to support marriage protections for all Americans. The time is now for President Obama to stand with him and be the man of conviction we elected in 2008. Please urge President Obama to endorse equality for all Americans. Stand with Joe and stand up for all American families.
- President Obama
I just signed the following petition addressed to: President Obama.
First, thank you for your work on behalf of the LGBT community. Repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell was indeed historic. Ordering non-discrimination in hospital visitation was an important step in protecting our families. But until we have full federal equality in all matters governing civil law, our families will still be ripped apart by the so-called "Defense of Marriage Act," our tax burden greater than our heterosexual friends and families, and our children considered strangers to us in the eyes of the government.
Vice President Biden has taken the bold move to support marriage protections for all of us. The time is now for you to stand with him and be the man of conviction we elected in 2008. Please endorse equality for all Americans by standing up for marriage. As we learned the hard way in this country, separate but equal is not equal - and never will be.
Stand with Joe, Mr. President, and stand up for all American families.
