GOP Platform Will Describe Marriage as ‘Union of One Man and One Woman’ 

GOP

The Republican Party’s official platform this year will describe marriage as a “union between one man and one woman.”

Reuters reporter Ginger Gibson broke the news on Twitter.

Despite this being an anti-LGBT stance that ignores the fact that gay marriage is now legal everywhere in the U.S., it actually represents a ratcheting down of the party’s anti-LGBT rhetoric. As previously reported, this year’s platform will not call for an amendment to the U.S. constitution effectively banning same-sex marriage as it has in years past.

It seems that the debate among the platform committee on Monday has focused more on the party’s advocacy for teaching the Bible in public schools. However, it ultimately seems to have concluded that, yes, the Bible should be an essential part of public school education in this country.
