Obama: Gay Rights Not “Special Rights”
In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network Barack Obama slaps down the notion that equal rights for LGBT Americans are “special rights.” Gay rights opponents have used the meme “special rights” as a way to combat the growing support for LGBT civil rights. In this clip Barack also talks about his support for reproductive choice.
This appearance continues Barack’s willingness to stand firm in his convictions even when he has to tell people things they may not want to hear. He made clear to the likely conservative viewers of CBN that he supports a woman’s right to choose and that he will to be a strong advocate for LGBT civil rights.
Far too often candidates pander to different groups of voters careful not to tell them anything that they may find offensive. This is not the case with Barack. He tells it like it is and you have to respect that.
