Obama Asks Gays To Be Patient, Promises More Rights

"I know that many in this room don't believe that progress has come fast enough, and I understand that," Mr. Obama said at a reception for LGBT Pride Month at the White House. "It's not for me to tell you to be patient anymore than it was for others to counsel patience to African-Americans who were petitioning for equal rights a half-century ago."

And I want you to know that I expect and hope to be judged not by words, not by promises I've made, but by the promises that my administration keeps."
