“Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”
President Obama surprised most of America on Monday by becoming the first president to mention the word “gay” and the issue of gay rights during a presidential swearing in. The speech puts an exclamation point on the end of an “evolution” that finds him leading the drive towards equal treatment of the LGBT community.
Even right-wing pundits didn’t know quite what to make of it. Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer called Obama’s speech “amazing” and “very important historically,” while Chris Wallace referred to it as a “call to arms for the liberal agenda.”
Which brings me to Chris Christie.
