Obama to Appease Homosexualists this Weekend, Again

As his public support erodes, and in the face of repeated complaints by homosexualists that Obama isn't advancing the Gay Agenda fast enough, the President will, again, assure the homosexualists that they can pull his strings. Recently, the White House and leading Democrats have said that "gays in the military" is on hold, yet Obama has placed a homosexual along side school children, as well as lesbians, and hate crimes legislation is on its way to his desk. In addition, Congress is advancing the Gay Agenda, including repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, which the White House has denounced as discriminatory.

UPDATE 10/8/09: Obama's unprecedented address to homosexualists isn't enough for gay activists

-- From "Obama to Address Gay Rights Organization" by Jeremy W. Peters, New York Times 10/5/09

President Obama will speak to a gathering of gay rights activists this weekend, a day before thousands of people are expected to march on Washington [for the National Equality March] in a demonstration calling for greater legal protections for gays, lesbians and transgendered Americans.

Mr. Obama’s appearance on Saturday at the annual dinner for the Human Rights Campaign, a leading gay rights advocacy group, represents a significant show of support for gay rights at a time when many prominent gay and lesbian activists have been questioning the president’s commitment to their issues.

Many gay rights activists have become increasingly vocal about their frustration over what they see as tepid support from Mr. Obama. While the president has professed support for overturning the ban on gays in the military and called the law that precludes federal recognition of same-sex marriages discriminatory, he has not engaged on gay rights issues as actively as some had hoped.

His appearance will mark only the second time a sitting president has spoken to the Human Rights Campaign. The first time was in 1997 when Bill Clinton spoke to the group. That was the first time a sitting president had ever addressed a gay rights organization.
