    But I'm not personally swayed.  If this individual were engaging in this kind of activity or rhetoric now it would be an issue for me, but if this selection is an endorsement of anything it is the pastor's current good works, which seem on the up and up.  It is an important distinction to me.  If he has evolved on the issue I have no beef.

    I think the reason, at least for me, that things like this are a cause for concern is that it can be a sign of a hidden agenda.  I am confident that Obama does not have a hidden anti-LGBT agenda.

    That said, I understand the power of symbolism and understand why this may upset some people.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
