Obama Has Gay Friends

After choosing a pious anti-gay pastor/self-help author for the inaugural invocation (during which time we are supposed to pray that the creator of the universe guides our president), Barack Obama lied while defending his decision:
I am fierce advocate for equality for gay and -- well, let me start by talking about my own views. I think it is no secret that I am a fierce advocate for equality for gay and lesbian Americans.
If Obama is a "fierce advocate" for gay equality, then it's the best kept secret in Washington. In fact, Obama believes gays should remain second class citizens and don't deserve full marriage rights. Like Rick Warren, he thinks marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman. He might be friendlier to gays, he might not think they are evil, but the results are the same: no gay marriage.

In 2007 Obama told us what he thinks about the activists who tirelessly work to achieve the rights he takes for granted:
..it would be extraordinarily difficult and distracting to try to build a consensus around marriage for gays and lesbians.
Gays Rights are a distraction. I suppose he means a distraction to his political ambitions. What a "fierce advocate."
