gutsy move:

The Democratic Party is set to include a pro-gay-marriage plank in their party convention platform, according to a Democratic source.

The language was included as the first step in the platform process. The platform drafting committee met in Minneapolis this past weekend. Next, the full platform committee will be consider it in Detroit in two weeks and then, it will go to the convention delegates in Charlotte for final approval.

No specific language of the platform plank was made available.

The Washington Blade, which broke the news, also reported -- and the source confirms -- that it was approved unanimously and "the platform approved on Sunday not only backs marriage equality, but also rejects DOMA and has positive language with regard to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act."

they're backing up what Obama said earlier this year.  this is sure to rile up the Christian Right and all their good buddies.
