We at Freedom Liberty News had considered them only rumors, but now those rumors have been confirmed as true – with a new biography confirming that former President Barack Obama had considered coming out “gay” during his college years.
The new biography which is titled Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, tells a story of Obama’s friendship with an openly gay assistant professor at Occidental College named Lawrence Goldyn. And he, according to the Daily Caller, had a huge impanct on “Barry Obama”.
From the Daily Caller:
“Almost a quarter century later, asked about his understanding of gay issues, Obama enthusiastically said, ‘my favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew…He was a terrific guy” with whom Obama developed a ‘friendship beyond the classroom.’
Obama confirmed that it was Goldyn’s influence and friendship that made him consider his sexuality, however he decided against it because being straight was “less challenging and demanding”.
From Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama:
“Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,” Garrow wrote. “But there is no doubting that Goldyn gave eighteen-year-old Barry a vastly more positive and uplifting image of gay identity and self-confidence than he had known in Honolulu.”
Well, this is shocking! We had always suspected this, and now it appears – fact.
