This was quietly reported as I haven’t seen it posted too many places. But just further proof that Obama is in full support of gay rights. Michelle Obama was the keynote speaker at the Democratic Party’s Gay and Lesbian leadership Council – from OneNewsNow.com:
An ABC News report on the event says Mrs. Obama stated that “Barack believes that we must fight for a world as it should be.” She said that world would be a place where, what she called, ” discriminatory laws” like the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will be repealed. DOMA gives states the right to reject homosexual “marriages,” even when such unions are performed in states like Massachusetts and California where they have been legalized.
The Defense of Marriage Act is considered discriminatory by the Obamas. So no doubt here, any and every effort made in defending the act of marriage with one man and one woman will be shot down if Obama becomes president.
and she continues saying . . .
“the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide for themselves how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples, whether that means a domestic partnershp, a civil union, or a civil marriage.”
Michelle Obama went as far as to even equate gay rights with civil rights when the following was said on the Village Voice site:
She mentioned that June 26 was the fifth anniversary of Lawrence v. Texas, the landmark Supreme Court decision that struck down the state’s anti-sodomy law, and she used the phrase, “from Selma to Stonewall,” to connect the gay and civil rights movements.
It’s very disturbing to hear of this type of support for the gay community, but this is something that Obama has been giving us hints throughout! But to equate civil rights with gay rights shows again, that this couple has been completely brainwashed by Rev. Wright’s church, as this was a teaching that the church supports.
Well, there we have it! No doubt at all that this presidential candidate will attempt to put down every act that’s out there in defense of marriage.
