"John McCain continues to artfully illustrate why we need a pro-equality President like Barack Obama in the White House. Throughout his answers to the Washington Blade, Senator McCain uses flowery code words easily accepted by the anti-equality activists which continue to control his campaign and the Republican Party. John McCain is opposed to the equal enforcement of hate crimes legislation, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the repeal of the detrimental 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy and he continues to support discriminatory ballot measures which target our families in Arizona, California and Florida. John McCain has said that he hopes 'gay and lesbian Americans will give full consideration' to supporting his campaign. We have and we don't. That is why the majority of our community - and the majority of Americans - continue to support the Obama/Biden ticket."

-- Stonewall Democrats Executive Director Jon Hoadley responding to John McCain's hope that "gay and lesbian Americans will give full consideration" to supporting his campaign.
