Obama At The Holocaust Museum

Yesterday while speaking at the U.S. Holocaust Museum, President Obama mentioned homophobia in a list of "hatred that degrades its victim." Obama:
"To this day, there are those who insist the Holocaust never happened - who perpetrate every form of intolerance — racism, antisemitism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, and more — hatred that degrades its victim and diminishes us all. Today, and every day we have an opportunity, as well as an obligation to confront these scourges. To fight the impulse to turn the channel when we see images that disturb us, or wrap ourselves in the false comforts that others' sufferings are not our own."
