Obama on Gay Rights: “It was something I experimented with in college”

President
Barack Obama clarified his ambiguous position on gay marriage by
telling the press after an LGBT fundraiser, “Gay rights was something I
experimented with in college.”

Before a crowd of gay and lesbian
Democrats ready to stuff their money into a rainbow-colored sack with a
dollar sign painted on it, the president gave an inspiring speech on the
matter of gay rights.

While affirming his belief in gay rights as
civil rights, he made sure to distance himself from outwardly
supporting marriage equality. “Supporting gay marriage might have been
something I experimented with in college, but it was just a phase. We
all go through phases like that, like my goth phase before that,” he
told the fundraiser attendees.

    With this rectal pore's track record, it's almost impossible to imagine anything negative he/she/it hasn't been involved in. Look at the crowd that still backs him/her/it.

    I have a friend who has had to do work and deal with the 'fine' folks at the church of Rev Wright and he said there were openly gay ministers in charge and that the church was one of the most racists he had ever been to. Liberation theology is the same socialist crap that Jim Jones taught, and apparently the "christian president" we have who is so pro-islam had this to say in "Audacity of Hope", "For many practicing Christians, the same inability to compromise may apply to gay marriage. I find such a position troublesome, particularly in a society in which Christians men and women have been known to engage in adultery or other violations of their faith without civil penalty. All too often I have sat in a church and heard a pastor use gay bashing as a cheap parlor trick—‘It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!’ he will shout, usually when the sermon is not going so well. I believe that American society can choose to carve out a special place for the union of a man and a woman as the unit of child rearing most common to every culture. I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitations or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I will...

    So he perverts the Gospel and calls the parts he doesn't like "obscure", just as he does the Constitution.

    So this guy was born in 1960 and he went through a goth phase?And by the way ,how long do phases last?I think anything over 5 years is no longer a phase and anything that lasts over 10 years is a life style.

    It may not be as many as expected. It's likely that even with some progressive gays, they're unhappy with him on some level of interest. He stated he wasn't particularly supportive for gays joining in one union of matrimony although side stepping it a little, he still expressed it. That's gotta hurt.

    Agree with you; there are some gays that aren't into the radical gay rights and don't approve of the same sex marriage laws etc..... I think Larry doesn't agree to same sex marriage too. And some tea party conservatives for gays is making the rounds.

    I do know that when he took a polygraph test he failed, but there was some contraversey on who administered the test, So he took another one and passed.

    I haven't read his book, but seems Larry knew Donald Young and received a phone call from Donald the night he got murdered and said he was very afraid.

    You do know that Donald Young and friends were choir directors at J Wright's "mosque"
    (I just can't call that a Church being associated with the buildings of Christ's worshippers)
