NAACP supports marriage equality

CBS News is reporting that the NAACP has voted to support marriage equality:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) backed a resolution on Saturday in support of “marriage equality.”


Although the civil-rights organization stopped short of coming out in support of same sex-marriage, it expressly opposes states’ anti-same-sex laws.

“We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law,” Roslyn M. Brock, chair of the NAACP board of directors said in a statement.

The resolution passed by the organization’s board of directors says “the NAACP has opposed and will continue to oppose any national, state, local policy or legislative initiative that seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the Constitutional rights of LGBT citizens.”
