Wayne Powell on Gay Marriage
Campaign Website Statements
All people in our country should be treated equally. I believe that the Constitution protects the rights of all Americans. This includes equal rights for homosexuals, bisexuals and transgendered citizens. I favor the repeal of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and I would advocate marriage equality as well.
I support the recent repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. During my 30 year military career I saw first-hand that the policy was not useful and forced several thousand valuable service members out of the armed services. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with whether or not someone is a good soldier.
