Welcome President Obama

Well done Mr Obama with your landslide victory !! Atlast a president who believes in equality for all and has heaps of charisma. We hope and pray that all will go well - and that you can unite a devided world again.

His stance (and involvement) in gay-rights are as follow:
Opposes CA Prop. 8, one-man-one-woman marriage. (Jul 2008)
Being gay or lesbian is not a choice. (Nov 2007)
Decisions about marriage should be left to the states. (Oct 2007)
Homosexuality no more immoral than heterosexuality. (Oct 2007)
Ok to expose 6-year-olds to gay couples; they know already. (Sep 2007)
Has any marriage broken up because two gays hold hands? (Aug 2007)
We need strong civil unions, not just weak civil unions. (Aug 2007)
Legal rights for gays are conferred by state, not by church. (Aug 2007)
Disentangle gay rights from the word "marriage". (Aug 2007)
Gay marriage is less important that equal gay rights. (Aug 2007)
Gay rights movement is somewhat like civil rights movement. (Aug 2007)
Let each denominations decide on recognizing gay marriage. (Jul 2007)
Pass ENDA and expand hate crime legislation. (Mar 2007)
Opposed 1996 Illinois DOMA bill. (Mar 2007)

It is not going to be easy - but I think you have won over the hearts and hopes for a better world not just in America, but also from the rest of the world
A little joke (I know Mr Obama will find it humorous): The US Government has placed their first problem on the table to be resolved ....
