Whether you're Rick Perry who says “you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday” to know it is wrong that gay men and lesbians openly serve in the military at a time when there is no organized prayer in public schools, or just a strong believer in marriage between a man and women- do you think you're ready for what's next in regards to gay rights? I mean are we, as a society ready for gay rights to rise? In 2008, when Senator Obama was running for president many people didn't believe he would make it far, but he suprised many and became popular quickly; mostly in the African American community. So is this the same case with gay rights; only popular in the gay and lesbian community? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying President Obama is not the best president America hasn't elected in a long-time, but who was more proud that Mr. Obama became president? The black community, in which I am proud to be apart of. So do you think that many Americans care that Don't Ask, Don't Tell is gone? I don't think so. It's sad to hear but it's who we are as Americans, what we believe in and how we try to influence others to believe in the same. Gay rights is a controversial topic and I hope nobody get offended by anything in this post. Some day, it's going to come-up, so why not now?
