Just recently President Obama has visited Kenya (his father's homeland) for the first time as a U.S. President. Before his visit, many Christian pastors in the country urged him not to speak about the rights of the LGBT community. Anyone who is LGBT (which under current Kenyan law) can face a considerable amount of time in prison. I had the time to hear a lot of their remarks and they were beyond hateful, and it is quite disrespectful for them to ask a President of the United States to be quiet on an issue. While in the country President Obama urged the importance of equality for all people while in Kenya, and I'm proud of him for standing up to those bullies.
