Posted on 07/03/2011 2:48:16 PM PDT by lbryce
President Obama refused to endorse same-sex marriage this week but left no doubt about what he truly believes.
At Wednesday presss conference, he ticked off his efforts on behalf of gay rights: expanding the federal hate-crimes law; repealing the dont-ask-dont-tell restriction on openly gay soldiers; refusing to enforce the federal law denying recognition of same-sex marriages. He went on to praise the recent vote legalizing gay marriage in New York: What youre seeing is a profound recognition on the part of the American people that gays and lesbians and transgender persons are our brothers, our sisters, our children, our cousins, our friends, our coworkers, and that theyve got to be treated like every other American.

Pressed about his personal views on gay marriage, Obama said coyly, Im not going to make news on that today.
Another day, then. Obama hinted his conversion was underway in December, when he described his views on gay marriage as constantly evolving. (Frankly, the jig was up last week when Obama quoted Lady Gagas anthem Born This Way while headlining a New York fundraiser attended by hundreds of gay-rights activists.)
In politics, its all about waiting for the right moment, the right landing. Had Obama said the magic words at the New York event or at the press conference, which preceded a White House reception for Gay Pride Month, his endorsement would have looked like pander.
Facing a challenging reelection battle that will hinge on his stewardship of the economy, Obama cant afford to look like hes taking his eye off the ball.

He had no girlfriends in his 20s,,, not a one that ive ever heard of. I think we know where he stands on gay marriage.
Why wouldn’t a homosexual support same-sex marriage? ( I won’t use the word “gay” to describe a homosexual)
Better Question: Does anyone with half a brain who
keeps up on current events thing the Wee Wee is not gay?
Does Anyone Really Think Obama Isn't Gay?
Obama is liberal. Same-sex marriage has become a liberal cause celebre. I think we all know where he stands. He just doesn’t want a sound bite of him saying he supports same-sex marriage.
His views must conflict with his Muslim faith
In 2008, Obama swore he was not for same sex marriage---but he has done everything possible to promote the homo agenda.
Obama appointed czar Kevin Jennings, founder of the pro-homosexual GLSEN organization, "to oversee safe schools" programs. Jennings was involved in the 2000 "Fistgate" scandal in which homosexual adults at a GLSEN youth workshop "guided young teens on how to engage in sexual perversions, including the violent gay practice known as "fisting."

"When I wake in the morning, I wait on the Lord, and I ask Him to give me the strength to do right by our country and its people," Obama said. "And when I go to bed at night, I wait on the Lord, and I ask Him to forgive me my sins, and look after my family and the American people, and make me an instrument of His will." more at Wash/Ex.com

As a going away present, Omao gifted "fisting expert" Jennings with $400M tax dollars in the 2011 budget ON TOP OF $400M in 2010 budget. Jennings can now has riches beyond imagination to continue his dirty work with our tax dollars.
I don’t think he supports the idea of gay marriage personally. It’s not a popular thing amongst blacks, even the ones that like getting a little action on the DL.
But, I think he does like the destabilizing and destructive influence it creates on our nation’s Christian morals and on the family, because those are the two biggest stumbling blocks in our culture that must be destroyed to move his dreams of world communism forward. Its in his best interest to keep the debate going as it slowly creeps forward, rather than seeing it pass suddenly nationwide.
LOL. Bill O’Reilly.
Everytime anyone asked him, he would say Obama is not in favor of gay marraige because that’s what he says.
It amazes me a man like BOR who “has the best research team” on cable can miss a fundamental principle like you don’t believe anything a politician says - you watch what they do - but there it is.
If you were married to Michelle wouldn’t you be looking for an alternative as well?

U.S. Department of Education to host LGBT youth summit Monday and Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
U.S. Secretary of Education (official site) | June 06, 2011 (date of event) | Official press release
FR Posted on Sunday, June 05, 2011 2:26:03 PM by Salman
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will give remarks at the Departments first-ever Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) youth summit at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 7, at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C. The two-day summit, Creating and Maintaining Safe and Supportive Environments for LGBT Youth, will take place Monday-Tuesday, June 6-7. Duncan will highlight the administrations commitment to ensuring equal access to education for LGBT students as it does for all students. He also will discuss the Departments Office for Civil Rights recently released guidance on the protection against harassment in an education setting based on gender, which includes gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender individuals. The guidance, which was sent to schools, colleges and universities in a Dear Colleague letter, explains educators legal obligations to protect students from harassment based on racial and national origin, gender and disability.Read more at wnd.com
CIRCA 2009 A coalition of Christian organizations launched an effort to have him removed, asserting that Kevin Jennings is one of the most vitriolic anti-Christian activists in America. Jennings is known for his prolific use of obscenities to describe Christians. Jenning will apparently advance Barack Obama's anti-Christian homosexual agenda.
The shocking Jennings appointment is another flagrant example of Obama saying one thing and doing another---and flaunting it, as well. Candidate Obama catered to Black Churchgoers who voted for him thinking he would uphold their strong views against same-sex marriage. Obama ran on a platform against same sex marriage and has given the impression that, as president, he will do nothing to advance same sex marriage.
This calculated move serves to make Black Churchgoers complacent while giving Obama leeway to advance the homosexualist agenda in other ways.
OCTOBER 2009 Obama received a warm welcome at the annual dinner of the homosexual support group Human Rights Campaign, promising to sign hate crimes legislation, to repeal both "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and the "Defense of Marriage Act." and to continue supporting his besieged appointments as "safe schools czar" and head of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
WND revelations about Kevin Jennings, the safe schools czar, and Chai Feldblum, his EEOC nominee, have resulted in criticism in Congress and from group's concerned about past actions and statements.
53 members of Congress demanded that Obama dismiss Jennings following WND disclosures about his past, including an incident in which he counseled a 15-year-old student to keep quiet about being seduced by an older man. WND disclosures that Feldblum proclaimed "gay sex is morally good" have also made her a target for criticism.
"I'm here with a simple message: I'm here with you in that fight," Obama told the homosexual activist group. "For even as we face extraordinary challenges as a nation, we cannot and we will not put aside issues of basic equality. I greatly appreciate the support I've received from many in this room. I also appreciate that many of you don't believe that progress has come fast enough. I want to be honest about that. Because it's important to be honest amongst friends."
Obama made a direct reference to his besieged appointees without naming them. "Nobody in America should be fired because they're gay, despite doing a great job and meeting their responsibilities," he said. "It's not fair, it's not right, we're going to put a stop to it. Read more at wnd.com
Ohaha and the Democrats know they cant win on radical abortion and gay rights issues. 2008 Obama duped Black voters into voting for him----now 2012 Obama needs to convince church going black Christians that (A) hes a lifelong Christian, (B) he is not the most extreme Democrat on the issue of abortion, and, (C) he is not a supporter of the homosexual agenda.
You’ve got it.
He has no problem with it, I’m sure. But he does not want the blacks or muzzies to hear him say it.
I have not a drop of respect for Obama. He is a lying pig, as far as I am concerned. If the MSM didn’t do the suck-up dance around him every day, he would be hung out to dry. Because he lies like Joseph Goebbels.
According to his spokesman, he has been very clear that his position is evolving. Whatever the heck that means.
I don’t think Obama being a Muslim and/or a homosexual are the driving force behind his refusal to ‘come out’ in favor of same-sex marriage. I think it’s simply a pure political calculation. Although many people will tell a pollster they are O.K. with ‘gay marriage’ when it comes to vote, the issue has always failed. So, Obama has to pacify his liberal base who, while certainly not all homosexuals, are strongly in favor of the destabilizing ‘gay marriage’ proposals being bandied about and sometimes passed, as just happened in New York state. He celebrates the legal ‘victories’ that give homosexuals more and more ‘rights’ and privileges, signaling to his lefty base that he’s on board with the gay agenda.Meanwhile, because the Black and Latino community are not too favorable toward the constantly advancing ‘gay agenda’, Obama plays coy and refuses to specifically ‘endorse’ the concept of same-sex ‘marriage’, thus, he thinks, he is straddling the issue - and fooling Christians and those who oppose so-called ‘gay marriage’. Only in his dreams.
And it didn't.
Remember when we had the whole Bush clan ready to let in 70 million Mexicans just because Jeb's wife and crackhead daughter think of themselves as Mexicans?
People will do stuff to the whole country just to benefit one or two relatives.
It’s another mis-statement. He really meant his position is constantly revolving!
From the article...
Exit polls showed 70 percent of African-Americans and 53 percent Hispanics voted to outlaw same-sex marriage in California in 2008, compared to 49 percent for whites.
For strictly political reasons, Obama cannot publicly support gay marriage because he risks the black vote monopoly. He has no choice but to continue to lie about his approval of gay marriage while behind the scenes, his administration does everything within their power to help establish it's legal foundation.
For all of you who ridicule minority outreach, the Republican Party needs to do everything within it's power to inform the black community that the Obama administration is actively promoting gay marriage.
...but I'm not terribly optimistic.

May 24, 2010 SPECIAL REPORT from WAYNE MADSEN.
Obama and Emanuel: Members of same gay bath house in Chicago
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicagos gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
The bath house, Mans Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicagos grand old bathhouses. WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year lifetime memberships to paying customers and that the clubs computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to Mans Country believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
Members of Mans Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry.
Obama began frequenting Mans Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Mans Country after he left the Clinton White Hosue and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor.
Mans Country appears to be a one stop shopping center for gay men. The clubs website advertises steam rooms, fantasy rooms, bed rooms, male strippers, adult movies, and lockers.
However, Mans Country was not the only location for Obamas predatory gay sex activities. The Chicago gay community is aware that Obama often made contacts with younger men at his famous pick-up basketball games. It was at these pick up matches where Obama first met Emanuel and a young Democratic campaign worker and senior bank vice president named Alexi Giannoulias. Currently running for Obamas old U.S. Senate seat now occupied by Roland Burris, Giannoulias successfully ran for Illinois Treasurer in 2006 after being drafted for the run by Chicagos Democratic machine.
He would not naturally share black America's values even in this area. His gay marriage position has always been a political yarn. Evolving? Please. It's a theatrical performance. He's slow boiling the frog (America) on this issue.
I want to be clear since I can see it being misread... I’m not saying Cain, Rice or Jackson would fit in at Wrights’ church or that it’s mainstream. I’m saying Obama chose to go the fringe for his education in “Black America.”
I think that Obama is that most dangerous of political creatures: He supports political expedience as a way to gain power.
No core beliefs, at all. Period. Whatever he has to say to gain power is what he believes in. If the situation changes, the beliefs change. Dangerous to support because they will sell you out for the slightest gain.
Mitt Romney is cut from the exact same cloth and if you want to see what a Romney administration would look like, look at Obama.
...and from July 1, 2011, “Obama’s Obsession with Sexual Orientation” which says, “A few weeks ago, Malawis Ambassador to the United Nations said privately that the Obama administration had threatened to withhold $350 million in aid unless Malawis government struck down its laws on sodomy.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2742820/posts
It is interesting seeing Obama in a vise like this. His leftist supporters are all gung ho about gay marriage, but the average black American is definitely NOT. I’ve said this before, but they oppose gay marriage not just for the religious reasons, (I bet 90% of black clergy, even “liberal” ones oppose it) but they REALLY don’t like the whole notion of it being called a “civil rights” issue. Like it or not, this is the Black community’s “Holy Grail” after slavery abolition. Having a bunch of white liberals trying to make gay sex equal to what they hold very dear is insulting on a level we just can’t comprehend. I’ve read liberal black’s commentaries about how the average Joe African-American SHOULD be feeling about this issue, but it isn’t working. In the end, Obama will still get the black vote, overwhelmingly, but it will be not nearly as enthusiastic. The repubs, if they are smart could use this, not as a wedge or fear issue, but a chance to show where we share the same values as Black-Americans.
And now the admin is pushing the gay agenda in Africa, and the African countries don’t want any part of it.
Birds of a feather...
Did you take notice of post #22? :-)
What youre seeing is a profound recognition on the part of the American people that gays and lesbians and transgender persons are our brothers, our sisters, our children, our cousins
Wrong again a-hole what we are seeing is legislators passing laws that we citizens don’t want, and then we have to go to referendum to get rid of them
Hopefully we will get rid of those politicians at the ballot box next time around.
Good post, nevertheless. Great minds think alike. :-)
Please help us out by refraining from posting lurid photos demonstrating someone in the act of beastiality.
Let’s also beware of mean-spirited homosexual groups accusing heterosexual politicians, or their spouses, of being gay. They are doing this because they know heterosexuals would be embarrassed if anyone thought they were gay.
Being a pervert is all part of being evil.
He probably tortures kittens too.
Obama in 2008:
“....although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.”
