So it came as no surprise today that columnist and blogger Andrew Sullivan suggested that, if Senator Barack Obama wants to learn more about loving families, he might want to chat with PFLAG'ers.
"At some point before the election, he should give a speech to some chapter of PFLAG: the Parents [Families] and Friends of Lesbians and Gays," Sullivan wrote on his blog today. "It's an integrative, family-oriented way to demonstrate his support for gay people . . . "
Indeed, PFLAG parents have been educating leaders from both parties for years about what being pro-family is really all about: embracing and loving every family. And as part of PFLAG's 2008 get out the vote campaign, they'll be talking to their neighbors, co-workers and friends, too, about the importance of showing up at the polls in November and making their voices heard.
And at PFLAG, our moms and dads are non-partisan chatters. So we suggest to Andrew that maybe Senator McCain would be moved by a visit to his local PFLAG chapter, too. After all, as any proud PFLAG mom can tell you, our families have a lot to chat about . . . and a lot to teach us all.
