This broadcast began with Jim Schneider sharing and commenting on troubling comments from President Obama as he gave his speech at the Democratic National Committee's LGBT gala held at Gotham Hall in New York City this past Sunday. Below are some of the President's thoughts: '7 Years ago we came together not just to elect a President but to reaffirm our faith in that most American of ideals, the notion that people no matter where they come from, what they look like, what their last name is or who they love, can change this country. And from the beginning that faith was tested by a great recession, by political obstruction, by established barriers and everyday indignities all of which reminded us that our march toward equality was unfinished.' He went on to say, 'Tonight we live in an America where 'don't ask, don't tell' is something that don't exist. We live in America where a growing number of older generations recognize that love is love and younger generations don't even know what all the fuss was about. And tonight, thanks to the unbending sense of justice passed down through generations of citizens who never gave up hope that we could bring this country closer to our founding ideals that all of us are created equal, we now live in America where our marriages are equal as well.' Several paragraphs later he indicated that while we cherish religious freedom, this freedom grants no one the right to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.
