This is an incredible speech. I love this guy. I can’t believe he is our President and is standing at the HRC giving a speech. I like how he mentioned the old views that are keeping people down. I’m sure those who refuse to recognize that we are people who are fighting for justice and equality will be having fits soon. Imagine George W. Bush standing up in front of the HRC saying these things! It never happened because his views were the old views. They will soon be a bygone era that is remembered alongside those who used religion to keep down the slaves; those who used religion to keep down women; those who used religion to keep the ‘races’ separate. Now they use religion to keep the glbt community from gaining equality. I’m certainly going to do my part to make sure those who are against progress are remembered—maybe not specific names, but certainly the ideas of these people. There is no doubt in my mind that once the glbt gets its equality (despite those religious outdated views), they will move on to the next unfortunate group. Maybe immigrants. Maybe women. Who knows, but it will be someone. And I am certain that the glbt community will come to their help. We’ve had to deal with religious persecution for a very long time.
