LGBT activists view Obama as staunch champion of their cause
Associated Press ^ | Jan 7, 2017 1:17 PM EST | David Crary

It was a new look for the White House, bathed in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage nationwide.

President Barack Obama, who was inside, felt the glow on that June night in 2015. “To see people gathered in the evening outside on a beautiful summer night, and to feel whole and to feel accepted, and to feel that they had a right to love — that was pretty cool,” he said a few days later. “Pretty cool.”

That might be a fair description of how Obama himself is viewed by legions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans who consider him — among all U.S. presidents — the greatest champion of their rights and well-being. […]

Since Trump’s election victory, LGBT-rights activists have expressed fears that the new Republican administration will reverse some of Obama’s supportive executive orders and back legislation allowing some forms of discrimination against LGBT people if it’s based on religious beliefs. …

Hmm. Think Crary might have some familiarity with the subject, thus prejudicing him?

The immorality issues are ALL Obama ever really cared about. Everything else has been window dressing.

I call those issues “civil wrongs,” as opposed to civil rights.

I think Mr. Crary has forgotten the Orlando nightclub shooting, where Obama took the side of the Moslem gunman, not the LGBTQXYZ victims.

The entire fakenews media seems to have forgotten. Or they just haven’t figured out how to excuse that yet.

Anyone who saw the photo CNN keeps showing to “celebrate” the end of the Obama ERA would swear Obama is gay. I mean, queer as a three-dollar bill. I’d try to find it on CNN but it’s probably buried in fake news by now.

LGBT wants a Federal do nothing job, and wants YOU to support their laziness. LGBT spelled sideways is TURD.

When he gushes, Obama’s totalitarian mindset is even more evident.

Government approval means ‘acceptance?’

Someone has a ‘right to love’ issued by government and the courts?

Madness.

I thought everyone knew barry has been Gay all his life. No idea where the kids came from but there’s two things I do know; neither one looks like either barry or michael and guys can’t have kids.

For the obama’s to champion LGBTxyz issues is fully self-serving; not for the good of the country at all. In fact I would say it goes against what’s best for the country when certain Gay issues are normalized in a society struggling to maintain some semblance of decency. I understand I risk coming across as a prude by saying these things but I don’t care. I accept some people choose the Gay lifestyle. I stay away from it and want nothing to do with it. I only have an issue with it when it’s shoved in my face like what hollyweird is doing now with every tv show and movie by showing gay men and women kissing and doing other things. Most straights don’t like that kind of thing shoved in their face when watching broadcast tv. It’s a risk with paid cable and premium channels and I accept that but still don’t like it. It’s unnecessary and blatant social engineering by a sick faction within the population. While I do accept it; I still don’t think it’s normal but it’s also not my place to say what adults do with their private life.
