Skip to comments.Obama: June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month
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 Dont Ask, Dont 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 Dont Ask, Dont 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.

Gay month just sucks
As does Obama.
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 .

What the hell is there to be proud of in those lifestyles? Good grief.
A whole month celebrating perversion... which month was it that celebrates religion?
Our military is made up of the best and bravest men and women in our nation...”
...but we need some queers and weirdos to gum up the works”.

I guess I’ll keep my kids locked up until Family Pride Month....waiting.
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.
>> A whole month celebrating perversion... which month was it that celebrates religion?
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.

Is that the official gay rights White House poster?
When somebody makes a boast of his "pride," it is generally because he has a reason to be ashamed.
