6. So I guess as long as you're not gay, you're "all the people" in Obama's opinion?
As a black man, I would expect him to be more sensitive to discrimination. By allowing an anti-gay person a platform to speak in his campaign, Barack is endorsing that person.

I will NOT vote for Barack, and he will not be President of "all the people" until ALL THE PEOPLE are treated with equal rights, dignity, and respect. And he should know that more than most, which makes this an especially egregious error on his part.
