Howard Dean with Pat Robertson
This is funny. Dean reveals on the 700 club that democrats are against gay marriage. Is Dean God's gift to Republicans or what.
Dean declared: "The Democratic Party platform from 2004 says that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says. I think where we may take exception with some religious leaders is that we believe in inclusion, that everybody deserves to live with dignity and respect..."
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force leader Matt Foreman say's
"Governor Dean is wrong about what the Democratic platform says about marriage equality. Disturbingly, this is not the first time he has misrepresented this important and affirming plank, and he has been asked before to correct the record and to cease making these misleading statements."
The reason Dean was on Pat Robertson show was to gain support of Christians.
In an effort to drum up support in the Christian community before the 2006 midterm elections, Dean also stated on the show: "One of the misconceptions about the Democratic Party is that we're godless and that we don't have any values.
I wonder if honesty ever crossed Dean's mind as a way to gain support.
