Obama claims he is a “friend” to gays

In an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams, President Barack Obama says gays “have a friend in the White House,” but then goes on to say marriage is an issue the government should stay out of. Oh Obama, when will you keep your promises to the queer community?

P.S. I agree that the government should stay out of the religious institution of marriage, but because the two are already intertwined, we must make them equal.

  1. He sounded like a blubbering fool. Yes there are a “whole host of legal rights that [we] don’t have,” So then why does Obama continue to allow American citizens to be marginalized in that way?
    And if he is so committed to civil unions why do we still not have civil unions in all states?

    • We don’t have civil unions in all states because that would first require a bill to be passed by congress. He can’t just say, I want civil unions and it happens.

  2. Well, politicians say a lot of things now don’t they?

    When will any politician keep their promise? They are all useless.
