  •  Today Lambda Legal filed a lawsuit (0+ / 0-)

    In New Jersey court because the state of New Jersey's five year experiment with delivery equality by separate but equal institution of Civil Unions has failed. Five years has been wasted on the failed plan the President recommends. He's endorsing a failed plan.

    Is the LGBT community inclusive enough to embrace the glitter-dispersal impaired? Discuss.

      Not his personal beliefs.  Like I said a lot of the advocacy comes across to me like people want him to validate their belief system rather than make the correct civil rights endorsement.  Why not say we don't care how you feel in your heart about gay marriage?  What we do care about is what is the correct civil rights position to take.

      I can't remember his name but a New York Republican senator basically made that same argument when he voted last week.  He said in his heart he is against gay marriage but he can't see a reason for it not to be legal.

      I just plain don't care about Obama's beliefs  I care about his actions and his endorsement is the wrong action.  That is my focus.  

      •  I don't care about his beliefs either. (0+ / 0-)

        I care about his position. And he's wrong.

          Are too focused on his beliefs.  From journalists to bloggers the predominant language used is does he believe in gay marriage yet when I think the language used should be whatever his beliefs may be has he endorsed gay marriage yet.  The question should be when are you going to endorse gay marriage.

            He and his team are smart. They know what people want him to say. He hasn't said it.
