First ever President in office stating he believes in equality and rights for all LGBT people. That's a big deal. << I almost started crying when I read this (I'm straight but I support equality for all genders/sexual orientations) :)
John Stewart - gay rights & religion . Whether or not it's a choice is irrelevant - as he points out here, we protect people's right to their religion, which IS a choice. So even if people did "choose" to be gay, why wouldn't we protect their rights?
