Rep. Schock: Mandela was an example of democratic change

It was a moving memorial and the largest gathering of world leaders in recent history. Presidents, Prime Ministers and royals joined tens of thousands of South Africans to honor, praise, and remember Nelson Mandela.

Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock led the congressional delegation from the United States and is one of two Republicans who attended the memorial.

    The same Aaron Schrock who can't wrap his head around the inherent equality of this country's gay citizens? (http://www.towleroad.com/2012/08/rep-aaron-schock-speaks-his-mind-on-gay-marriage-doma.html)
