When he was running for his present Senate seat against Alan Keyes, Barack Obama made his pro-homosexual positions clear. Alan Keyes responded, during the debate, that extending marriage or domestic partnerships to homosexual couples defeated the purpose of marriage, a family institution focused on rearing the next generation. Keyes was explicit, saying that there can be no comparison since only heterosexual couples can pro-create. Obama held the position that loving gay couples were the equivalent in child-rearing capabilities.
Only in his appearance with Ted Kennedy, has Obama been as openly explicit about his support for homosexual rights during the Presidential debate. Obama is rated as the most liberal member of the U. S. Senate.
However, Hillary Clinton, in an apparent attempt to out-liberal Obama has given an exclusive interview with The Blade, a homosexual magazine, in which she declared, “I’m more pro-homosexual than Obama.” Clinton promised, that if elected, she would be the first U.S. president to march in a homosexual-pride parade.
The interview was published on-line and wedged between naughty ads adult “hookup” services and ads for foreign lesbian brides. In the interview, Hillary enthusiastically re-pledged support to the magazines audience. And she taunts Obama for not being as enthusiastic about homosexuality as she claims to be. Hillary retorts, “I’ve been a longtime friend of the gay community – I’ve been talking about these issues since … I first ran for Senate and went on record as the first major candidate to say we’re going to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ I talk about ending discrimination all the time.”
In South Carolina, the Obama campaign used Gospel singer and Christian minister Donnie McClurkin. McClurkin is an outspoken recovered homosexual. Senator Clinton said she found it “ironic” that Obama had this gospel tour with former homosexual McClurkin and then would accuse her of not being as supportive of gay causes has he is.
Clinton stopped short of offering support for homosexual “marriage.” She also said she would not repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DMA). Obama has pledged to repeal the act. She did pledge to take steps to “extend federal benefits” to same-sex couples. She promised to work to extend immigration rights to the foreign partners of homosexuals, and the repeal of the U.S. military’s don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy.
When asked if her support for gay rights measures would include “forceful advocacy,” she replied, “absolutely.”
