Barack Obama’s same-sex love fest continues!
The presidential hopeful not only expanded his gay efforts this week, but the Senator also clarified his position on gay adoption and other family matters.
The statement comes after pro-gay Family Equality Council – spurred by John McCain’s prohibitive comments last month – pressed Obama and his Republican rival on their respective positions.
McCain has not yet responded – and, honestly, we doubt he will – but Obama offered the following remarks:
Iâ€™ll be a President that stands up for American families â€“ all of them.
The desire to build a life with a loved one, to provide for a family and to have children who will grow and thrive â€” these are desires that all people share, regardless of race, sex, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.
My own experience has taught me this lesson well. I was born to a single mother, my devoted grandparents helped raise me, and then I married the woman of my dreams and had two beautiful daughters.
We also have to do more to support and strengthen LGBT families. Because equality in relationship, family, and adoption rights is not some abstract principle; itâ€™s about whether millions of LGBT Americans can finally live lives marked by dignity and freedom.
The FEC loved said response…
