What the F*ck has happened to the gay world. Every one is jumping with joy over the table scraps that the President gave today in support of gay marriage. Every gay organization from the National Human Right Campaign, Victory Fund and others are patting themselves on their back about what a wonderful job they did moving the President – Now send us money!
Did no one watch the entire interview or did their heads just explode at another fundraising opportunity? The president went on to say that he still believes that it is a state issue. The headline for tomorrow should read;
OBAMA AFFIRMS NORTH CAROLINA’S RIGHT
TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST GAYS!
That is what he said. That it should be up to the states. Can you imagine an America today if Lincoln had said the he is personally against slavery, but he thinks it is an issue best left up to the states? He realized that Americans should be afforded the same rights in each and every state. Including the right to be legally protected in love.
We have no cause to celebrate today any more then we did when President Reagan finally used the word AIDS. Words can hurt but seldom amount to anything substantial. It is actions that count. Today we got a half ass endorsement and a pat on the head. The President and the gay organizations got a new fundraising tool. And today I got squat! I got no protection for my marriage and told once again that I am a second class citizen in my own country.
