Remember what Obama said about disagreeing without being disagreeable? Obama is wearing his disagreement with Warren about gays and lesbians on his sleeve, as one of the 16 families chosen to accompany Obama/Biden on their whistle stop tour is composed of two females...Placed by Obama on equal footing with every other family on the stage.

So, Rick Warren's "Family values" includes opposition to gay families. Well, Obama just illustrated what his "family values" are by supporting all families.

Quote courtesy of buzzflash below.  

Lesbian couple Lisa Harzirjian and her partner Michelle have been invited to join the Whistle Stop Tour and appear on stage with Obama and Biden during events.

When this was a hot topic the Obama people said basically; "Watch what we do." Well, this lesbian is watching and is very pleased. Actions still speak louder than words to me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
