Obama cites gay rights in Inaugural Address

Obama Marriage EqualityPolitico pointed out that President Barack Obama became the first to use the word “gay” in an inaugural address when he addressed the nation on Monday.

I thought this particular quote shows a continued evolution from last spring when he first voiced his support. The introspective nature of that initial endorsement has become more forceful.

Thank you Mr. President for using your Inauguration Speech on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to recognize inequality and to call all Americans to come together.

  1. I agree. I remember in the 2008 campaign Obama was much more uncertain on this topic. I too believe that his support of GLBT equality is part of an evolution on his party, and I believe the majority of Americans agree with this position.
