I know I am going to hear a lot of flack from the gay community for not supporting Obama's paperweight pledge to support gay marriage. I am gay, of course, but I find it too convenient that right after North Carolina had their tragic vote to amend the state constitution to codify marriage to only be between a man and women, Obama has a miraculous change of heart to support gay people now.
Why don't we open our eyes and see that he does not care about our issue. He is a decent president that got some things worked out for the county as a whole and he carried on in the initiatives that Bush started but that does not mean he gives a damn about our cause.
The way I look at the situation, if he cared about gay rights so much, why did his administration decide to take "no action" on the executive order the HRC advocated about homosexual discrimination in the work place. That had nothing to do with marriage expect for the the word "gay" in the title.
You can't be against one set of gay rights and then want to come out publicly for another. That makes you a hypocrite and foolish gay people are thanking him all over place. No, I will say thank you when young gay men are not dying because they are being bullied all over this nation.
