    The United States will immediately begin considering visa applications of gay and lesbian spouses in the same manner as heterosexual couples, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday.

    Kerry made the announcement at the U.S. Embassy in London.

    "When same-sex couples apply for a visa, the Department of State will consider that application in the same manner that it considers the application of opposite sex spouses," Kerry said shortly after his arrival in London.

    "If you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen, your visa application will be treated equally. If you are the spouse of a non-citizen, your visa application will be treated equally. If you are in a country that doesn't recognize your same-sex marriage, then your visa application will still be treated equally at every single one of our 222 visa processing centers around the world," he added.

    I guess this is more evidence that confirms what our US Republican RJ members have been telling us for years - that President Obama and his Administration really hate gays, while Republicans love us, but we're just too stupid to realize it. icon_rolleyes.gif
