Byron York has an interesting look at Barack Obama's speech to the Human Rights Campaign on Saturday night.
The Center for American Progress, which is the outside the White House arm of the administration, claims Obama signaled that he is standing by Jennings. Maybe, but as Byron York notes, maybe not. What Obama actually said was:
And it’s for this reason if any of my nominees are attacked not for what they believe but for who they are, I will not waver in my support because I will not waver in my commitment to ending discrimination in all its forms.
No one is attacking Kevin Jennings for being gay.
People are after Kevin Jennings for being a supporter of pedophilia advocates and NAMBLA supporters.
People are after Kevin Jennings for encouraging a sexual relationship between a fifteen year old boy and a grown man who solicited the kid in a bus station bathroom.
People are after Kevin Jennings for being named "Safe Schools Czar" while under the believe that schools cannot be safe as long as the Boy Scouts of America are allowed to meet in public schools.
People are after Kevin Jennings because he believes kindergardeners should be taught about gay sex.
People are after Kevin Jennings not because of who he is, but because of what he has and is advocating — a complete rejection of common decency in favor of the most radical aspects of the gay agenda including, but not limited to, man-boy sex.
It is pathetic that we even have to write about such topics here, but that is what it has come to, thanks to Barack Obama's open mind, so open that all decency and perversion are treated as just equally acceptable non-conflicting alternatives. All decency, that is, except traditional American values.
