White House invites gay families to Easter event

The White House is allocating tickets for the upcoming Easter Egg Roll to gay and lesbian families as part of the Obama administration's outreach to diverse communities.Families say the gesture shows that the new Democratic administration values them as equal to other families.

And for many, being included in the annual tradition — dating to 1878 — renews hope that they will have more support in their quest for equal rights in matters such as marriage and adoption than under the previous administration.On Tuesday,gays and lesbians gained another victory when Vermont joined Connecticut, Massachusetts and Iowa in giving gay couples the right to marry. In the District of Columbia, the council voted to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.

The world's most infamous foreign-born puppet-dictator, Barry Soetoro: wants to play both sides of the debate between common law-abiding citizens & people, who protest against common-laws (such as those, who think marriage is properly defined as a same-sex union).

That's why he was selected to be a puppet-dictator: to deceive all voters & pretend as if he's trying to make the world a better place for all of them. He knows the proper-definition of marriage, but he'd rather play ignorant when he's confronted by both christians & heathens. Judging from his past encounters with former boyfriends & personal sex-slaves, he's a homosexual. Yet, he poses as a "Christian", at times (especially when he's trying to impress his masters by role-playing like they trained him to do).

Maybe, he'll stop acting like he's a Christian, when his masters tell him to drop the act because billions of people know he's not following the teachings of "Jesus Christ", anyway.

There's no such thing as a christian president. There are plenty homosexual presidents, who pose as christians & muslims though.

How is this news?

Who cares if gays are being invited to the white house for an event. My god people are sensationlising this far too much.

He invited PEOPLE not gays or straights.

What a bunch of bs.

So what??!!
Gay people cant participate in Easter eagg hunts too????

Straight families are no better then Gay families

I cant even stand Mr. Obama, but I dont see this as a bad thing. And from what I see all around me, Easter isnt even practiced in a religious way anymore. Colored egss and bunnies and OH MY GOD - GAY PEOPLE at the White House.

I will say that it should be open to families in general. All should be welcome regardless of race, marital status or what gender they choose to be in a relationship with.

This is the least of my concerns. Much lower then my concern of who the President even is right now.

When I was in, nobody cared, now the pols have made an issue out of sexual preferance.

Nothing to see here; move along, you.

Okay, I really can't help myself. I kept reading your reply and thinking...... "what a GREAT Easter egg hunt that would be."

I do an Easter egg-o-fest for my Bride every year. Outside. Yah. We both have fun.

Inviting people to a party celebrating Jesus based on someones sex life is mentally retarded. "Hey, you like Jesus and you like having sex with this guy over here. Why not come to my Easter party since you have sex with that guy?" Obama is a crazed lunatic who is turning people's sexual preferences in some kind of freak show.

Attempted pandering to Christians while pandering to homosexuals does not mix. If someone told me: "Hey you're straight why don't you come to my hetrosexual dinner. I'd wonder what was wrong with them because that would be ridiculous." True its not news but its annoying to have to hear.

I have to doubt this was reported correctly, because if so Obama would enjoy discrimination based on sexual orientation. And he would never do that he is "the one" because Oprah said so.

The world's most infamous foreign-born puppet-dictator, Barry Soetoro:

When a thread starts like this, you know it's going to be a weird one

While I can't say I am delighted with everything the administration's been doing, this doesn't bother me in the least.

Gay families were invited to the 2006 Easter Egg hunt. So what's the big deal?

Much like the Bush-haters, the Obama-haters will find anything to criticize him or his administration.
