The Christian Broadcast Network is curious, so Barack Obama addresses the fallacy of “special rights” for lesbians and gays.

Promising Democratic Presidential contender, Barack Obama was recently interviewed by David Brody – at The Christian Broadcasting Network.

Brody asked Obama about special rights for lesbians and gays.

The deeply religious Obama explained:

“Well, the fact is that right now – many gay couples, for example, can’t visit each other in the hospital. And when I sit down and read scripture, I think, ‘How would Jesus feel about somebody not being able to visit somebody they love when they’re sick?’ I conclude that that is something that is important. Certainly as a public official, it’s important for me to make sure that those basic rights, that basic equality is available. On these issues, I think we can disagree respectfully. My hope is – I understand there are going to be some people who can’t vote for me because of a couple of these positions. I just want them to know that there are not issues that I take lightly…”

This segment of the interview is captured in the video below.

    I think that if Jesus was here right now. He would told the religious to cast them stone upon themselves. because they show hate against their fellow neighbors and he would have been outrage when all he did was talked about LOVE, LOVE, LOVE not HATE!!!

    Shame on the Certain Religious and the White Supremacist that are Bigots and more worried about others when they have their backyard and closet to worried about.

    especially Rev Phelp

    What a direct rational answer. This is what I’ve been praying for in a straight politician — someone who can matter of factly explain the issue without trying to avoid it or parse or qualify.
