AFA poll: White House will warm Obama's cold feet
We in the LGBT community might be skeptical about Barack Obama coming out in full support of our marriage equality. However, the "pro-family" readers of the AFA's One News Now seem ever-more resigned to the possibility that our incoming chief executive is going to help gays plan their bachelor(ette) parties:
Obama marriage poll [ONN]
"Pro-family" lips, please meet the ears of the God that you so fervently deny to gays!
How exactly does any president "move toward legalizing same-sex marriage" when:
1. marriage is mostly a state issue,
2. marriage is mostly a judicial issue,
3. the one federal endeavor that the president has no role whatsover in is amending the Constitution
Of course, supporters of same-sex marriage might want to keep all that in mind too...

I wouldn't take their poll too seriously -- this crowd also believes the rapture is coming any day now.
(Of course, they believe the election of Obama probably proves G--d's displeasure with America, which will lead to destruction ... but that's another poll.)

Well yea, but let's not pretend that his opinion holds no sway. It does. It gives many people a pass to stop short of full equality. In fact, I would argue that one rousing Obama speech in favor of marriage equality could do more to change this national conversation that anything even our most well-financed of groups could muster.

They are up over 10,000 responses (if you can believe anything from the lying liars), and the first year in office is still above 55%. I voted for that one just to give the fundies more reason to be contrite.
