The group's executive director, Matt Foreman who has vowed to politically "punish," "terrify" and "torture" activists who oppose his organization's agenda says in a statement the presumptive Democratic ticket is " the most gay-supportive national ticket in American history." The group commented on Edwards' "strong support for key issues important to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and [transgendered]" persons, including supporting nine of 13 key issues of importance to homosexuals. While it enthused over Edwards' opposition to a constitutional amendment protecting marriage, the lobbying group lamented that he "does not support extending equal marriage rights to same-sex couples." Foreman urges Edwards to use his "strong Southern and populist roots to speak out against the ugly, divisive and anti-gay campaigns being waged all across the country in the guise of 'protecting' marriage."

People object when we preach fire and brimstone, but it's people like Foreman, Edwards, and Kerry that will bring it raining down on our heads.
