"We believe that Barack Obama is constructing a tent big enough for LGBT Americans who know that their sexual orientation is an innate and treasured part of their being, and for African American ministers and citizens who believe that their religion prevents them from fully embracing their gay brothers and sisters. And if we are to confront our shared challenges we have to join together, build on common ground, and engage in a civil dialogue even when we disagree."
--A letter of support from leaders of the African American religious community and the gay community

This of course completely evades the question of why I should want to be part of such a tent.

I'm guessing they're assuming that they're talking to Democrats here, considering this is the primary.
