President Barack Obama certainly catered to lesbians, gays, bi-sexuals, trans-sexuals at a recent dinner.

“We cannot and we will not put aside issues of basic equality. This fight continues now. And I’m here with a simple message: I’m here with you in that fight.”

I agree that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect as God’s creations, which is why I support civil unions.

But—and it’s a big but—Obama went on to say he wants to look back over the years of his administration to “see a time in which we as a nation finally recognized relationships between two men or two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman.”

That’s where I would argue that same-sex marriages are not “admirable.” (Click links for further thoughts on this issue.)
