First, where is the ACLU? After all, Obama is seeking to force his religious beliefs on the country. Oh, wait, they only protest religious views they disagree with — which means that they aren’t opposed to religious views in principle. They just use that as a tool to suppress free speech.
Second, is this a coincidence? Obama openly supports gay marriage: 48 hours after top gay donors cut off funding. And note how it takes the focus off the economy. Be sure to end any conversation about this with a reminder of how bad our financial situation is.
As Haemet notes, “same-sex marriage” is still not banned anywhere in the U.S. You should immediately question anyone making that claim, because they are misinformed and/or disingenuous. And they are probably hateful and ignorant of polygamists and those who practice bestiality. At least that’s what they say about anyone who disagrees with them about the historic view that marriage is a union of a man and a woman. They’ll be shocked that you would say that, but they are just pulling up the drawbridge and hating on anyone who doesn’t think just like they do. You need to be as liberal as them or you are a bigoted hater, but not any more liberal than them or you are a pervert. Got it?
Make no mistake, Obama didn’t evolve on “same-sex marriage,” he devolved back to his 1996 position because it was costing him campaign contributions. The impatience of the LGBTQX lobby may have cost him the election and the sure support of SSM he would have given after the election.
He has been doing everything imaginable to advance their agenda, including ignoring the Defense of Marriage Act (which the Left was happy about but ignored the dangerous precedent — picture President Bush arbitrarily not enforcing Roe v Wade) and exporting perversions to other countries (we are withholding aid from poor countries unless they go pro-gay).
By the way, he is still lying. He has no intention of leaving it to the States. He’ll do the same power grab he did with the Defense of Marriage Act.
Let’s analyze what he said, via Obama endorses gay ‘marriage’: says support based on Jesus, Golden Rule:
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 9, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – President Barack Obama has flip-flopped on gay “marriage” for the second time, endorsing same-sex marriage in an interview today, in which he said his decision was motivated in part by his Christian faith and his belief in the Golden Rule.
This is such a transparent political fundraising stunt. That is bad enough, but for him to blame it on Jesus is sickening. Why is he forcing his (false) religious beliefs on us?
Remember, this is the same “Christian” who is not only pro-partial birth abortion but anti-Born Alive Infant Protection Act and who was a devoted follower of Jeremiah Wright (until it cost him something).
“We are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others,” Obama stated,
Yes, “others” like God.
“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.”
That is nonsense and could justify almost anything.
However, Obama had previously implied the Bible supports homosexual unions. “I believe in civil unions that allow a same-sex couple to visit each other in a hospital or transfer property to each other,” he said in 2008. “If people find that controversial, then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.”
Only a pagan could find Romans 1 to be obscure. It is one of the most “big picture” books of the Bible. And the Sermon on the Mount says nothing about oxymoronic “same-sex marriage.”
The president told the media his newly articulated position represents his private views, and that he believes each state should make its own decisions about marriage. However, he has publicly opposed state initiatives to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman in North Carolina and Minnesota.
What — you mean he already broke his word? And anyone who says he won’t change once again about Federal involvement is naive or lying.
Fox News anchor Sheppard Smith greeted the president’s statement by saying, “President Obama, now in the 21st century.”
What a tool.
“Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples,” he added.
So if his kids are friends with polygamists, pedophiles, people who have sex with animals, etc., then Barry will change? Or will not being willing to change make him a bigoted hater?
In today’s statement, Obama appeared to flip-flop on the issue of marriage for a second time. In 1996, while running for Illinois state senate against Alice Palmer, Barack Obama filled out a questionnaire from the homosexual activist group IMPACT stating, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” His aides later disavowed it.
As a U.S. Senate candidate in 2004, running against Alan Keyes, Obama said, “I’m a Christian. I do believe that tradition and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.” He maintained that position in the 2008 presidential race.
That’s because he’s lying.
Obama’s likely 2012 rival Mitt Romney clarified his position in return, saying, “My view is that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman…I don’t intend to make any adjustments at this point – or ever, by the way.”
One more reason to vote for Mitt.
But we shouldn’t be surprised with Obama. Remember, Obama’s UCC is the denomination of Jeremiah Wright and Chuck Currie, who makes ridiculous posts saying that President’s Call For Marriage Equality Consistent With Christian Ethics. Well, gee, if Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie says it then it must be true! He had this LOL:
Discrimination is contrary to the will of God.
Really now? Chuck is going to tell us about the will of God? This is the “reverend” that denies that Jesus is the only way to salvation, which is only mentioned 100+ times in the Bible. And he prattles on about the “least of these” but it pro-taxpayer-funded abortions. You can’t make this stuff up. Theological Liberals have no conscience on these things.
If those claiming the name of Christ want to disagree with the clear teachings of the Bible, their own denomination and 2,000 years of church history, then the burden of proof is on them to explain why the rest of us are wrong. Yet in my experience the “pro-gay Christians” just go by their emotions or offer up one logical fallacy after another (e.g., “Jesus never said anything about it, so it must be OK.”) I have more respect for non-believers. At least they are clear about being my spiritual enemy.
