Newsweek cover delcares Obama ‘First Gay President’

(BDCi) – Newsweek, which has recently become a target for a series of controversies for its cover art choices, drew more attention with the debut of its latest issue, declaring President Obama to be “The First Gay President.”
The cover, featuring Obama anointed with a rainbow halo above his head, made its arrival on newsstands Monday and comes in the wake of Obama’s declaration last week that he is personally in favor of gay marriage.
The cover article, by prominent Newsweek political writer and outspoken member of the gay community, Andrew Sullivan, delves into Obama’s past and asserts that given his background, his declaration of support for gay marriage should come as no surprise.
Obama’s declaration comes alongside a turning point for gay marriage in the court of public opinion, with a recent Gallup poll finding, that for the first time in its history, a majority of Americans support the legalization of gay marriage, 53% to 45%.
But, one-fourth of Americans still say that Obama’s support for gay marriage will make them less likely to vote for him in November, while 13% say they’re now more likely to vote in his favor.
