Obama: June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month
ABC News ^ | May 29, 2010 | Jake Tapper and Jon Garcia

Posted on 05/29/2010 4:16:57 AM PDT by Zakeet

As he did last year, Obama today declared June "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month." But this year the announcement comes as Congress began moving to repeal the controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy used by the US military when dealing LGBT service members.

President Obama hailed the Congressional moves, writing in a statement: “Our military is made up of the best and bravest men and women in our nation, and my greatest honor is leading them as Commander-in-Chief. This legislation will help make our Armed Forces even stronger and more inclusive by allowing gay and lesbian soldiers to serve honestly and with integrity.”

The Senate Armed Services Committee passed an amendment that would do away with the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and allow LGBT service members to serve openly, without fear of being discharged. The House of Representatives is expected to pass similar legislation.

“The legislation, the compromise that was worked out at the White House, is respectful of the fact that there is a review going on, speaking at all levels to the military across the country and in theater about how we should go forward,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

Under the compromise, the policy will not take effect until after the Pentagon has concluded its’ review of how the policy change might have an impact on the armed forces and how it can be implemented. That review is scheduled to be finished by December.

As his first act in Congress , newly elected Hawaii CD1 Republican Congressman Charles Djou voted to repeal DADT and allow these people to openly do this stuff in the military .
What is wrong with that picture?

I am rapidly losing all faith in either Party
NONE truly support those who fight for us and keep America strong . They do not have the right to vote these votes
that make the struggles even harder .

They aren’t that special, Mr. President. Obama tells America that June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. Memorial DAY is Monday, but that’s a day too long for a very busy President to remember those who died for our country to be free. Mothers get a day. Fathers get a day. What makes homosexuals and lesbians so special that all America gets a reminder? Especially considering that they are defined by their bedroom activity which is contrary to nature and God’s design.

All eternity is reserved for that celebration.

Enjoy your “month”, sex perverts. You’ll be paying for it a long, long, long, long, long, long time.

When somebody makes a boast of his "pride," it is generally because he has a reason to be ashamed.

Do these folks need a whole month of their own to celebrate their existance?

As far as I know, they represent around 2-5% of the population. Maybe they could get by with a week?

We have so many pressure groups that want their own month or week or day, everyone needs to play nice and share.

If it wasn’t so tragic for the country, I’d just sit back and enjoy the continuing debacle that is the Obozo administration. June is LGBT MONTH?! Announced on the same Memorial Day weekend that finds him too busy to visit Arlington?

Wouldn’t wear a flag pin. Didn’t cover his heart when appropriate. “Spread the wealth around.” 57 states. “Corpse men.” No flags at the presser. Won’t produce a valid BC. All school history missing or scrubbed. Career associations with known criminals and Communists. Surrounds himself with unelected “czars” accountable only to him. Has a thing for women wearing no makeup and comfortable shoes. Isn’t quite sure about this responsibility thing when dealing with disasters. World apology tour. Bows to dictators and tyrants. Agrees with anti-American diatribes from foreign leaders. Refuses to defend our borders.

I could go on and on, but my stomach is getting upset.

Anybody still think this guy is proud American? Or has any appreciation for our hard working, God fearing, tax paying citizens?

I am sure now that Obama came straight out of hell. So there is no reason to look further for his birth certificate. There is no reason to have a day for perverts, but to encourage it. I do not want to live in Sodom.

No, this is MORE IMPORTANT to Obama:

As he did last year, Obama today declared June “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.”

He is hell bent on destroying our culture and trashing our economics. This probably made weeny mouth, Barney, feel good.

Just be thankful they each didn’t get their own month, otherwise we’d be stuck “celebrating” them for four months instead of one! (Actually, I probably shouldn’t even mention this as it may them give an idea they might not otherwise have occurred to them.)

I say we let them have a month.

After all, everything (aside from viruses and some single cell organisms) that has ever lived on this planet has been the product of the heterosexual design of life for billions of years. Those not taking part in that design can have a month to celebrate their confusion.

We're not supposed to ask, and Obama is not supposed to tell, but we should definitely honor Larry Sinclair this month, just because the President said he was by far the best job he'd ever had!

And I think June would be a good month for the Prez to come out. Of COURSE he was making illegal deals with Democrat candidates around the nation, and allowing oil platforms to explode with impunity! He was too stressed worrying about his secret life! If he came out, the entire country would sing "Awwww" at once, and forgive him for everything!

Oh, and he's incredibly thin-skinned and incapable of taking any kind of criticism. But that's not related to the "of America" issue... still true, though...
