Newsweek Cover Calls Obama First ‘Gay President’

Barack Obama: The First "Gay President"

NEWSROOM AMERICA

Newsweek magazine has featured a picture of President Barack Obama on its cover this week adorned with a rainbow-colored halo and headline saying, “The First Gay President.”

Likely meant to showcase the president’s recent announced support for gay marriage – a position he said came about through “evolution” – the cover has caused instant controversy.

The cover story was written by avowed homosexual Andrew Sullivan, who is a self-described political conservative. In it he analyzes Obama’s decision.

Obama’s reversal comes six months before the presidential election. Critics have called it less of an “evolution” and more of a calculated political gambit to shore up his left-wing base.

The president’s view is 180 degrees opposite of likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney, who reiterated on Saturday that he believes “marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman.”
