Cindy McCain, wife of Republican senator and former Republican candidate for president in the 2008 election John McCain, has taken a public stance in support of same-sex marriage.
Below she appears in a poster for NOH8, a group fighting the ban on gay marriage here in California.
She and her daughter Meghan oppose Senator McCain’s belief that “the sanctity of marriage is only defined as between one man and one woman.”
According to the NOH8 campaign:
Aligning yourself with the platform of gay marriage as a Republican still tends to be very stigmatic, but Cindy McCain wanted to participate in the campaign to show people that party doesn’t matter — marriage equality isn’t a Republican issue any more than it is a Democratic issue. It’s about human rights, and everybody being treated equally in the eyes of the law that runs and protects this country.
We at Sex and the 405 approve of people standing up for what they believe even if it runs counter to one’s family or organization. That takes courage. Of course, our editor thinks that if we really cared about human rights, we’d eradicate the entire institution.
But then, she’s divorced. Of course she does.
