Anti-Gay White House Petition Needs Only 24,994 More Signatures To Reach 25,000 Threshold

A petition on the White House’s “We The People” site demanding President Obama “Focus completely on the economic crisis and cease crusading for same-sex marriage” needs only 24,994 more signatures to reach the 25,000 threshold which would force the White House to respond. The petition was created on November 23, so, it’s gotten less than one signature a day, despite being promoted by the anti-gay, hate filled group which calls themselves “Heterosexual Awareness Month.”

“The United States economy,though arguably improving,is still in an unsatisfactory state,” the petition reads. “Both Democrats and Republicans must work together to encourage the creation of jobs,cut the enormous debt and hopefully reform the tax system.”

We petition you to focus primarily on the pressing economic issues instead of pandering to the overly ostentatious gay pride movement.Many of us have had enough of “tolerance” and “acceptance” being forced upon us.

We petition you to cease the culture wars and get to work fixing the economy.

The problem with America is an uninformed electorate.

Yes, well, unfortunately, a pro-gay civil rights petition there hasn't been getting much more traffic than that per day. Where are the pro-civil rights folks when it comes to signing this one: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/put-gre…?

It's asking that Obama put on hold decisions (rather than denying like is happening now) green card applications for the foreign, same-sex spouses of US citizens until after DOMA can be reviewed by the Supreme Court.

I agree. The left missed a big opportunity to force Obama to go on the record on some important issues.

I, for one, don't see how he IS focusing on this issue. Sure he made a statement about his personal thoughts on the matter, but I don't see him putting true political muscle behind the movement. If anything since he is not using federal money to defend Doma, he is not focusing one way or the other. Conservatives and the house need to work with the admin on the economical crisis, not the other way around.

I think I know what the problem is. I went to the "We the People" site and I have to create yet another account to sign in. I don't want to have to "join" when I may not go there often enough to remember my name and password. I can't always get my name or have to add something to my password. I downloaded the new IE and I have to remember all the ones I have until it remembers them for me, AGAIN.

They should direct that petition to John Boehner.
