Ana Marie Cox: The LGBT community's lukewarm welcome for the president's gay marriage conversion reflects his lukewarm endorsement

kateoplis:

It’s indicative of the rather sour tone that the 2012 election has taken that gay rights advocates can’t even greet the president’s affirmation of marriage equality with unequivocal glee. Mainly because Obama’s affirmation was not exactly unequivocal.

It was more cautious than anything he’s said about Osama bin Laden, for example. He’s “just concluded” that it’s “personally important” for him to “affirm” the right of same-sex couples to marry.

    Yeah. Pretty much. A pretty speech in a safe time. Doesn’t mean he’ll DO anything about it.

    I don’t agree with this article at all. Frankly, I am pleasantly surprised that the President made this endorsement...
