President Obama’s Father’s Day Proclamation includes gay fathers

The White House issued the following proclamation to recognize Father’s Day: “Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by a father and mother, a single father, two fathers, a step father, a grandfather, or caring guardian. We owe a special debt of gratitude for those parents serving in the United States Armed Forces and their families, whose sacrifices protect the lives and liberties of all American children. For the character they build, the doors they open, and the love they provide over our lifetimes, all our fathers deserve our unending appreciation and admiration.”

The proclamation is similar to the one issued for Mother’s Day – which recognized families with two mothers.
