Gays Growing Impatient with Chosen One

So much so they are protesting.  The sad thing is, this was entirely predictable, based on the positions Obama took during the campaign.  What do gays really have left to get from the political process?  Gay marriage is just about it, and the coalition just isn’t there for that right now.  I’m also not surprised that Obama, who is forcing the Pentagon to accept deep budget cuts, while continuing to fight two wars, isn’t willing to further antagonize the military establishment by changing Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy towards homosexuality.  But other than those two things, what really is there?

    Outlawing employment discrimination based on sexual orientation is the other big one, I think.

    They’re going to have to wait a looooong time, since Muslims aren’t very tolerant gays. And you know, he recently came out and told the world he is a Muslim.

    How’s the transparency going for you, you who voted for the Chosen One??

    When did Obama admit he was a muslim?

    Barack Obama has never struck me as being a spiritual man. That’s not to say I don’t think he has a god, I think he does. But Barack Obama’s god is Government, not Allah.

    He didn’t. It’s a mis-reading of something he said while licking boots at the Turkish Parliment:

    “Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country — I know, because I am one of them. “
