Gay persons deserve as much opportunity and benefits in life as all others. Parents who have gay children, yet oppose their opportunities and rights, are too much concerned with themselves and their own fulfillment in life, but not in any way concerned about their children's future and fulfillment. That demonstrates not only ignorance about what being is about, but utter selfishness. If you have children, you are responsible for instilling optimism about their lives ahead. What is so hard to understand about that?

I think you meant to say: "not only ignorance about what being gay is about." I agree with you, but I think these anti-gay types will dwindle to just a handful in, say, another 40-50 years. Progress is slow, but it comes eventually. A lot of these folks will carry their prejudice straight to the graves.
Obama is probably just using this issue for political advantage, I suspect. I really don't see where he can change things though, not with the way these people think.
Just my humble opinion.

many of my friends are gay/lesbian and are great people and upstanding citizens. and they should have the right to love who ever they want.

Why? Because we don't call that gay marriage we just call it marriage.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to marry who you love! No matter what a 2000 year old book that has been changed so many times has to say. I'm Gay and proud of it and no one is going to restrict any of my rights EVER.
