Lavender Scare!?

The right-wing may be gearing up to use gay marriage against Barack Obama. According to archives from the now defunct Chicago gay paper, Outlines – which later merged Windy City Times – Obama, during his 1996 Senatorial run, supported same-sex marriage, a summation based on the fact that Obama opposed a ban on gay marriage, which has long been his stance. The candidate supports civil unions. [Bilerico and Windy City]
