In gay news today, it's just recently been gay announced that that a gay bishop will be giving a gay prayer at one of the gay-friendlier president-elect's totally-straight-and-not-at-all-gay inaugural events this upcoming weekend…
New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson–the worldwide congregation's first openly gay bishop– will be delivering the prayer at one of President-elect Barack Obama's first inauguration events at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on January 18…
The rest of the line up hasn't been announced yet, however both PEBO ["President-elect Barack Obama," we think] and Biden will be there, and Obama is expected to speak.
How about that? The new president is not only gonna let himself been seen at the same event as a gay, but he's also gonna maybe speak at the same event as a gay. That on top of hiring a gay to work on his staff.
If he keeps up this kind of behavior, he might just get himself a reputation. A reputation as an agent of tolerance and open-mindedness.
He's gonna have to work really hard to rid himself of those kinds of stigmas or he'll never get himself re-elected in 2012.
