"Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by a father and mother, a single father, two fathers, a step father, a grandfather, or caring guardian. We owe a special debt of gratitude for those parents serving in the United States Armed Forces and their families, whose sacrifices protect the lives and liberties of all American children. For the character they build, the doors they open, and the love they provide over our lifetimes, all our fathers deserve our unending appreciation and admiration."

--From Obama's Fathers' Day proclamation

These may only be a few words, and probably well scripted ones to try and win Obama back some LGBT support, but I have to say I don't actually care even if they were. Having the most powerful leader in the world publicly speaking about gay parenting as if it's just another acceptable family structure (which it is) has the potential to have a very powerful impact.

Good on you Obama.
