Barack Obama has now replaced Lincoln as our greatest President. Just as Lincoln made it his legacy to free blacks from slavery, Obama has outdone Lincoln in this area by emancipating the true victims of inequity, the homosexual, with his proclamation and the signature achievement of his administration, that all men should be allowed to marry all men.
It is time for the new civil right to take center stage, and for the old guard to stand down. Gay is the new black, and bullying the new slavery. Matthew Shepherd and Harvey Milk have replaced Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, and statues of both will no doubt soon be erected in places of prominence.
