Newsweek Cover Declares Obama ‘'THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT"

Yo'Adrienne..AFCL 2012/05/13 23:35:58


Newsweek magazine, no stranger to controversial covers, has unveiled the front of their next issue: It’s President Barack Obama with a rainbow-striped halo and the headline, “The First Gay President.”


The accompanying article will be written by Andrew Sullivan, who is openly gay. Newsweek forwarded a preview of Sullivan’s piece to Politico:



It’s easy to write off President Obama’s announcement of his support for gay marriage as a political ploy during an election year. But don’t believe the cynics. Andrew Sullivan argues that this announcement has been in the making for years. “When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work.” And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. “He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family,” Sullivan writes.


The full piece is not yet available, but Sullivan weighed in on Obama’s announcement in a blog post last week:

    This proves that Obama is no Christian (or Muslim for that matter). If he was a devoted adhearant to the faith, than the Quran's sura 7:81 would have dictated his 'belief' either for or against "gay" marriage, thus:

    [7:81] "You practice sex with the men, instead of the women. Indeed, you are a transgressing people."

    Well, when Obama throws a ball, he does seem to do it like a little girl with her arm in a cast.

    Well if the Obama camp hasn't come out and demanded a retraction and apology you have to believe they are okay with this and if that's the case then you have to deduce that it is true.

    Obama is no more "The First Gay President" than Bill Clinton was "The First Black President." Empathy with a group does not imply membership in the group.

    I honestly try to keep an open mind when it comes to gay issues but I am having a rough time trying to keep my libertarian values in check with that, the reason being is not about the sexual activities of the LGBT community but the way LGBT constantly hitting others over the head with it, I am a little lenient with gays and lesbians but I could care less for those who are obviously mentally challenged like Bi-sexual's and transgender sub cultures, I do not believe in any sense of rationality that Transgenders are somehow trapped inside a body they do not want, it is what it is a mental handicap that should be treated as such, as for bi-sexuals, they are also mentally handicapped or just sick twisted people, having a desire to be with both sexes isn't normal nor is saying I can't be truly happy unless I am screwing both sexes these people do not want commitment they want pets to do with as they please for their on selfish and greedy desires and should not have any discussion about rights. Gays and Lesbian want the right to marry but how can you make the argument about transgenders and bi's, you can't, it is irresponsible as a society to even consider this, if you have a bi couple who wants to marry another bi couple should it be allowed? of course not, its to much of a slippery...
