Obama Has Abandoned The Gay Community

...and I thought Clinton was bad for gays (he was.) But the quick betrayal by this new president is incomprehensible. The story is a bit below the radar due to the turmoil in Iran. But make no mistake: Obama has another war on his hands here at home: he is now at war politically with the gay community.

During the campaign, Obama pledged to end Don't Ask, Don't Tell and to repeal the Defense Of Marriage Act. Now six months into his presidency we find out that rather than repeal DOMA, Obama will defend it against challenges, and he has no plans to end DADT.

Were we lied to? Yes.

Perhaps finally gays and lesbians will wake up, stop being used by people like Obama, and demand action, not words when it comes to our rights as the price for our support.
