10-year-old Girl Writes to President Obama About Gay Marriage — and He Writes Back

1251104660cKp88C

Sophia Bailey-Klugh had already written to President Barack Obama once before, to invite him to dinner at her house. He didn’t RSVP, so when the 10-year-old with two dads decided to send him a note thanking him for his support of gay marriage, she wasn’t expecting a reply.

“Dear Barack Obama,” she wrote.”It’s Sophia Bailey Klugh, your friend who invited you to dinner. You don’t remember okay that’s fine. But I just wanted to tell you that I am so glad you agree that two men can love each other, because I have two dads and they love each other, but at school kids think that it’s gross and weird.”

“Totally unprompted, our amazing 10 year old decided to write this letter to Barack Obama,” her dad, Jonathan Bailey, wrote when he posted her note on Facebook. He and is partner, Triton Klugh (whom Sophia calls Papa) are “so unbelievably proud. And maybe we teared up a little.” In her letter, Sophia wrote that her classmates’ reaction “hurts my heart” and that she wrote to the President because “you are my hero.””If you were me and you had two dads that loved each other, and kids at school teased you about it, what would you do?” she asked.
Imagine her surprise when she looked in her mailbox last week and saw that the President of the United States had written back to her. “In America, no two families look the same. We celebrate this diversity. And we recognize that whether you have two dads or one mom what matters above all is the love we show one another,” Obama wrote (Bailey posted his reply on Facebook as well). “You are very fortunate to have two parents who care deeply for you. They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you.”

“Our differences unite us. You and I are blessed to live in a country where we are born equal no matter what we look like on the outside, where we grow up, or who our parents are,” the President continued. “A good rule is to treat others the way you hope they will treat you. Remind your friends at school about this rule if they say something that hurts your feelings.”

Then he apologized for having missed dinner, and promised “to tell Sasha and Malia you say hello.” “This is not about President Obama, it’s about what’s right,” Jonathan Bailey wrote on Facebook. “Thank you, Barack Obama — you have made one 10-year-old feel mighty special (and her two dads, too). ”

  4. I think dat man call obama is into dat game dat is d must reason why he is in support of dat ungodly act dat is against unhumanlity may God forgive u mr obama

  5. Obama an his agents has and will soon completely ruin America.
    You and your gay rights is the sign of the beast discussed in the book of Revelation.

  6. About the beast and antichrist, even Peter denied Jesus 3 times, it is destined to happen. Just pray that by his Grace you are found worthy to be saved. Stop casting stones. Findout why he signed the bill. I am shocked to hear you people drop such one track minded comments. My advice is for you to find out more about what being gay means. It’s not something you wish on yourself. Just like being mentally ill, shemale, or sleeping with animals. Many are evil spirits at work while some the people can’t help themselves. Who are we to judge what is right or wrong, just be glad you are born straight. Because Obama acknowledges them doesn’t change who he is. If some of you where in power you would have said they should all be wiped out; another Hitler. Just let God judge, if the gays could help it who knows what they would do.

  7. May God touch dis obama of a man n dat little girl to repent.itz annoying and absurd.all homosexuals shal end up in deep deep hell.God for bid dis rubbish.
