Elizabeth Warren Tells President Obama to Complete His 17-Month “Evolution” and Endorse Marriage Equality

Wednesday, March 25, 2012

Elizabeth Warren, who is running to defeat U.S. Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), pledged to support a series of pro-LGBT initiatives and called on President Obama to complete his now 17-month-old “evolution” and endorse marriage equality.

Speaking to the Washington Blade’s Chris Johnson:

“Any steps that the president can take toward non-discrimination benefit the whole country,” Warren said. “I don’t know how else to say it. It’s the right thing to do.”

The measure is sometimes referred to as the “ENDA” executive order because its effect would be similar to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, but limited to federal contractors. The White House hasn’t said whether it will issue the directive.

Warren called on President Obama to complete his now 17-month-old “evolution” and endorse marriage equality. She also said she supports the call for a marriage equality plank in the Democratic Party platform this September.

Asked whether she wants Obama to finish evolving and support same-sex marriage, Warren chuckled and responded that was indeed her view.

“I want to see the president evolve because I believe that is right; marriage equality is morally right,” Warren said.

She expressed similar sentiments about the Democratic Party platform, saying it would build support for ending the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act.

The divine Elizabeth Warren is running against Scott Brown, a Republican, who the voters of Massachusetts inexplicably elected to fill the late Ted Kennedy’s U.S. senate seat.

  1. Bravo, the divine Elizabeth Warren! We love you!

    I’ve sent Warren $50 for her campaign. I hope she wins. She rocks and yes, Obama’s “evolution” needs to come to an end and produce results. If not, he just looks like an idiot.

  3. Randy Arroyo says:

    Elizabeth Warren will make a tremendous senator. I still scratch my head in disbelief thinking the people of Massachusetts elected Scott Brown. I know the queens told pollsters they voted for him because he’s “hawt” but that just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. He’s a moron.

  4. Adirondacky says:

    Randy – They were out of their damned minds electing coverboy Scott Brown.

  5. Jim says:

    Go Elizabeth!

  6. The Real Adam says:

    I think Massachusetts is ready to correct their 2008 mistake and elect a senator ready and willing to work 60 hours a week for the electorate.

    Life lessons learned.

    Obama’s so-called evolution on same-sex marriage is purely political. When he was a Chicago politician, Mr. Obama supported marriage equality. But as a US senator, the risk of alienating religious conservatives became too great, and he chose to triangulate. Very cowardly in my view.

  8. Mets Fan says:

    Warren will make a fine senator for Massachusetts. She’s smart and her values are good.

    I hope the good people of Massachusetts send her to Washington so she can get to work. There is much work to be done.

  9. Joe in Colorado says:

    I still can’t fathom what Massachusetts was think when they elected Scott Brown? He offered them nothing but a handsome face. As senator, what has he done for them lately? I guess nothing which is why Elizabeth Warren is ahead in the polls.
