Gay-rights advocates aren't exactly thrilled with what they feel is slow progress by the Obama administration on issues they say are important to the gay community. "The measures don't address the root cause of the hardships and injustices facing gay couples and gay families, which is the denial of freedom to marry," says Evan Wolfson, executive director of Freedom to Marry, a gay and non-gay partnership for marriage equality and the author of "Why Marriage Matters." "The Obama administration and Congress must act to remove the barriers that gay Americans encounter in trying to participate equally in our society." [Link]
