Obama Finally Admits He Fully Supports Queer Marriages
Which begs the question: What took him so long?
Anyway, what I find hilarious is that he pretends like his view has “evolved” over the course of the past few years. Bull spit! Obama has ALWAYS supported gay marriages. It’s just that now he realizes that he needs to re-energize the youth vote. It’s a trade-off; the loss of the older voters for that of the youth, but it’s one he feels is worth it.
It will be interesting watching the Jewish leaders, Black Communities, and Hispanic groups (all known to largely reject same-sex marriages) wrestle with this issue.
Obama declares support for gay marriage
By Rick Klein | ABC OTUS News – via YahooNews
President Obama today announced that he now supports same-sex marriage, reversing his longstanding opposition amid growing pressure from the Democratic base and even his own vice president.
In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, the president described his thought process as an “evolution” that led him to this place, based on conversations with his own staff members, openly gay and lesbian service members, and conversations with his wife and own daughters.
“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told Roberts, in an interview to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday. Excerpts of the interview will air tonight on ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer.”
The president stressed that this is a personal position, and that he still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own. But he said he’s confident that more Americans will grow comfortable with gays and lesbians getting married, citing his own daughters’ comfort with the concept.
All thanks to the public indoctrination centers for children—which they call public schools…
Of course, if he ever has a hope of winning, Obama needs to continue deceiving the public into believing he is a Christian and that his decision is in line with Christ’s teachings. Well, roll out Obama’s desecration of Christ’s teachings:
“This is something that, you know, we’ve talked about over the years and she, you know, she feels the same way, she feels the same way that I do. And that is that, in the end the values that I care most deeply about and she cares most deeply about is how we treat other people and, you know, I, you know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated. And I think that’s what we try to impart to our kids and that’s what motivates me as president and I figure the most consistent I can be in being true to those precepts, the better I’ll be as a as a dad and a husband and hopefully the better I’ll be as president.”
Uh, yeah. Right. Obama’s religious slogan should be, “It’s all good in the brotherhood!”
What Obama fails to mention is that just prior to that “love thy neighbor as thyself” teaching, Jesus Christ says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.”
You can’t really say you love the Lord God very much if you are ignoring His stance on homosexuality:
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,” […] “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” […] “Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.”
Obama may have played the “golden rule” card, but God is still holding a Royal Flush…
The announcement completes a turnabout for the president, who has opposed gay marriage throughout his career in national politics. In 1996, as a state Senate candidate, he indicated support for gay marriage in a questionnaire, but Obama aides later disavowed it and said it did not reflect the candidate’s position.
In other words, he initially told the truth, then lied about it just so he could get elected.
Obama’s decision has political connotations for the fall.
The issue divides elements of the Democratic base, with liberals and gay-rights groups eager to see the president go farther, but with gay marriage far less popular among African-American voters.
