Teresa hints support
of same-sex marriage

By WND Staff

WASHINGTON – Some of those who attended Teresa Heinz Kerry’s address to the Democratic National Convention’s “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender caucus” – an event uncovered by the “straight” media – believe the would-be first lady broadly hinted at her covert support for same-sex marriage.

Greeted with thunderous applause – and chants of “Teresa, Teresa, Teresa” – from the crowd of 200 last week, Mrs. Kerry told the group: “I know that I am welcomed and I am grateful to be welcomed. I’m grateful to you because you symbolize family. You symbolize strength and hope. You symbolize resistance. And you symbolize tolerance. For that we are all thankful to you.”

According to a report in the Washington Blade, Mrs. Kerry outshined other speakers who included Rob Reiner, Ben Affleck and “Sopranos” television star Steve Buscemi.

“You are in a sense pushing the envelope,” she said. “We have to respond with policies that reflect the capacity and the tolerance of all Americans.”

The Blade reporter suggested Mrs. Kerry was possibly referring to her husband’s position of support for civil unions rather than gay marriage.

“But,” she continued, “because things are difficult doesn’t mean they won’t happen.”

She told of how she was moved at a campaign appearance a few months ago in Washington state, when a man told her in a question and answer session that his relationship with his mother was strained and told her, “I want you to be my mother.”

“It was clear that he had not made that peace with his mother and he wanted someone who loved him,” Heinz Kerry said. “And so, at least, if nothing else, you’ll have a mom in the White House,” she told the crowd.

Added Heinz Kerry: “You can call me Mama T.”

That remark prompted the homosexual delegates to jump to their feet chanting “Mama T!”

“If my child ever came to me and said, Mom, or if my husband’s daughters told me, ‘This is who we are and this is what I plan to do,’ then I would feel as a mother free to share my joy, my pride with all my friends, no matter what circumstances … or understanding of the culture, in the same way that if my son would say, ‘I want to marry this wonderful girl.'”
