Whatever help that's going to come to gay rights activists, it isn't going to come from Obama. Obama happily, willingly, and enthusiastically sought and received the support of some of the most rabidly anti-gay black pastors in South Carolina during the primaries. And he knew it full well. Yes he did mention gays in his acceptance speech, but that’s the usual candy-throwing from a politician.

>> I am extremely liberal and an atheist but I do not judge people on their beliefs. It is one of the things we do not talk about thats all.

Funny, because beliefs seem to be the only thing you *can* judge people on. People don't select their gender, skin colour or sexual orientation, so you can't judge people based on them. But beliefs, you choose them, so not only can you judge based on them, if their beliefs are harmful you have a moral duty to do so. Anyone who suffers because of your "friends" who take actions based on their beliefs will not appreciate your apathy.

>> I have many black friends from back home, Detroit, and most are anti-gay. They hate "homos" as they call them because one it is against their religion and against their society...

What lovely "friends" you have.
