Vice President Joe Biden apologized to President Obama on Wednesday for getting ahead of his boss by coming out publicly in favor of same-sex marriages, sources familiar with the exchange told ABC News.

The conversation took place in the Oval Office before Obama sat down with ABC News’ Robin Roberts for an interview during which he announced support for the unions, the sources said.

Biden set into motion frenzy over Obama’s position on same-sex marriage after saying Sunday on “Meet the Press” that he was “absolutely comfortable” with the unions.

Obama told Roberts yesterday that Biden “probably got out a little bit over his skis, but out of generosity of spirit.”

“I think Joe is an extremely generous loving person. And I think he was responding honestly in terms of how he felt,” Obama said.

“Would I have preferred to have done this in my own way? In my own terms without there being a lot of notice to everybody that this is where we were going? Sure,” Obama said.“But all’s well that ends well.”

Biden’s comments Sunday were impromptu and not designed to nudge the president forward, sources familiar with his thinking said. The vice president has expressed regret for stepping on the president’s plan to announce his shift in views later this month.

Just my thinking.
WPATH standards of care, widely accepted as the standard for treatment of trans people:

quote:

“Sex Reassignment is Effective and Medically Indicated in Severe GID. In
persons diagnosed with transsexualism or profound GID, sex reassignment
surgery, along with hormone therapy and real-life experience, is a treatment
that has proven to be effective. Such a therapeutic regimen, when prescribed
or recommended by qualified practitioners, is medically indicated and
medically necessary. Sex reassignment is not “experimental”,“investigative” ,
“elective”,“cosmetic”, or optional in any meaningful sense. It constitutes very
effective and appropriate treatment for transsexualism or profound GID.”

Also, take note:

quote:

“Severe Gender Dysphoria cannot be alleviated by any conventional
psychiatric treatment, whether it be psychoanalytic therapy, eclectic
psychiatric treatment, aversion treatment, or by any standard psychiatric
drugs.”

That's from Green (1999); Report cited in Bellinger v Bellinger, Court of Appeal, Judgement, July 17th 2001

Or, how about :

quote:

Sex reassignment plays an undisputed role in
contributing toward favourable outcomes, and comprises Real Life
Experience, legal name and sex change on identity documents, as well as
medically necessary hormone treatment, counselling, psychotherapy, and
other medical procedures… Medically necessary sex reassignment
procedures also include complete hysterectomy, bilateral mastectomy, chest
reconstruction or augmentation as appropriate to each patient (including
breast prostheses if necessary), genital reconstruction (by various techniques
which must be appropriate to each patient, including, for example, skin flap
hair removal, penile and testicular prostheses, as necessary), facial hair
removal, and certain facial plastic reconstruction as appropriate to the
patient… These medical procedures and treatment protocols are not
experimental: decades of both clinical experience and medical research show
they are essential to achieving well-being for the transsexual patient

That's Whittle et al; WPATH Clarification on Medical Necessity of Treatment, Sex Reassignment, and Insurance Coverage in the USA (2008).

Or, try:

quote:

“To require the condition to go untreated until it had caused an additional
severe illness disregarded the duty on Health Authorities to prevent illnesses
and constituted inhuman or degrading treatment.”

(This refers to waiting until trans people are suicidal before treating.) That's from R v North West Lancashire Health Authority ex parte A, D & G (1998).

<quoted text>For Democrats, the recall defeat of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on June 5th is supposed to be a precursor to Barack Obama’s landslide re-election victory in November. Not so fast. Scott Walker, who faced token opposition last night in the primaries, won 97% of the Republican vote, garnering more votes than both of the top Democratic candidates combined. He actually pulled in almost as many votes as were cast in the Democratic primary altogether. Not a very good sign for Unions and Democrats who will face Walker for real on June 5th.
In other news, Barack Obama is WAY behind in the Republican Presidential Primary!

<quoted text>the 49% that pay no fed taxes
http://www.tnr.com/blog/jonathan-chait/89076/...
The right-wing talking point that half of all Americans pay no income tax keeps circulating endlessly. Chuck Marr and Brian Highsmith of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities gives it the thorough debunking it so badly deserves. Summary:

The 51 percent figure is an anomaly that reflects the unique circumstances of 2009, when the recession greatly swelled the number of Americans with low incomes and when temporary tax cuts created by the 2009 Recovery Act — including the “Making Work Pay” tax credit and an exclusion from tax of the first $2,400 in unemployment benefits — were in effect. Together, these developments removed millions of Americans from the federal income tax rolls. Both of these temporary tax measures have since expired. In a more typical year, 35 percent to 40 percent of households owe no federal income tax. In 2007, the figure was 37.9 percent.
The 51 percent figure covers only the federal income tax and ignores the substantial amounts of other federal taxes — especially the payroll tax — that many of these households pay . As a result, it greatly overstates the share of households that do not pay any federal taxes. Data from the Urban Institute-Brookings Tax Policy Center show only about 14 percent of households paid neither federal income tax nor payroll tax in 2009, despite the high unemployment and temporary tax cuts that marked that year.
This percentage would be even lower if federal excise taxes on gasoline and other items were taken into account.
Most of the people who pay neither federal income tax nor payroll taxes are low-income people who are elderly, unable to work due to a serious disability, or students, most of whom subsequently become taxpayers.(In a year like 2009, this group also includes a significant number of people who have been unemployed the entire year and cannot find work.)
Moreover, low-income households as a whole do, in fact, pay federal taxes. Congressional Budget Office data show that the poorest fifth of households as a group paid an average of 4 percent of their incomes in federal taxes in 2007 (the latest year for which these data are available), not an insignificant amount given how modest these households’ incomes are — the poorest fifth of households had average income of $18,400 in 2007. The next-to-the bottom fifth — those with incomes between $20,500 and $34,300 in 2007 — paid an average of 10 percent of their incomes in federal taxes.
Even these figures understate low-income households’ total tax burden, because these households also pay substantial state and local taxes. Data from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy show that the poorest fifth of households paid a stunning 12.3 percent of their incomes in state and local taxes in 2010.
When all federal, state, and local taxes are taken into account,the bottom fifth of households paid 16.3 percent of their incomes in taxes, on average, in 2010. The second-poorest fifth paid 20.7 percent.

http://thinkprogress.org/special/2011/10/12/3...
"It is true that 47 percent of Americans did not pay net federal income taxes in 2009 — the number is unusually high because of the depression in incomes following the recession — but it is completely false that only 53 percent of Americans pay taxes.

For example, if you look at state and local taxes, the working poor actually pay a higher percentage of their income in these taxes in every state except for Vermont. In “Alabama, for example, low-income families (which make less than $13,000) pay 11 percent of their income in state and local taxes, while those making more than $229,000 pay just 4 percent.”

In the simplified version: If a conservative doesn't like something on TV, he changes the channel. If a liberal doesn't like a TV program, he protests and ask for removal of said program.

Should we have the homosexual? No, but that still does not make it right. I pray for them just the same way I do for others who are sinful.
You just listed behaviors. Very deceiving. A homosexual act is a behavior, homosexuality is a natural state of being. Confusing the two is the standard MO of conservative "Christians.".
