President Obama Supports Legislation to Repeal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)
ABC News ^ | 07/19/2011 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 07/19/2011 1:08:18 PM PDT by Pyro7480

Tomorrow the Senate will hold the first hearing on The Respect for Marriage Act, which repeals the Defense of Marriage Act, thus granting to all lawfully married couples—including same-sex couples—to receive federal marriage benefits and protections if they are joined by a valid marriage in a state where such marriages are legal.

“The president has long called for a legislative repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which continues to have a real impact on the lives of real people --our families, friends and neighbors,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said at today’s press briefing.

“He is proud to support the Respect for Marriage Act, introduced by Senator Feinstein and Congressman Nadler, which would take DOMA off the books once and for all," said Carney. "This legislation would uphold the principle that the federal government should not deny gay and lesbian couples the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.”

Obama today announced support for cuts to Medicare and SS.

Leftists are livid. Thus, expect to see more gay headlines like this.

How can allowing two homosexuals ,enamored with each others rectum ,to engage in these acts and have a ceremony they call marriage be calle respect for marriage.

Tere is nothing more disrespectful for marriage than a homosexual act.

This crap is sick and anyone who votes for it should be tarred and feathered.

I don’t klnow about the rest of America ,b ut I have about had a bellyful of queers and their enablers.

"This legislation would uphold the principle that the federal government should not deny gay and lesbian couples the same rights and legal protections as straight couples.”

So I wonder when he will support legislation making marriage between a heterosexual male and heterosexual female illegal?

Call it a hate crime or the like.

"We've also expanded enforcement efforts [including so-called homosexual civil rights] to guarantee that in our work places, our military bases, in our housing and lending markets, in our voting booths in our border areas, in our schools and places of worship. And I mean all places of worship," Holder also said.

No big surprise but it always ticks me off the way leftists use the English language to deceive. 'Respect for Marriage Act', my patoot! It is just the opposite. Sort of like when communist dictatorships call their government 'The People's Democratic Republic' (as in North Korea). It isn't democratic, it's not a republic and 'the people' have no say in it. Just as the promoters of the 'Respect for Marriage Act' actually want to demean the age-old institution of marriage and make the term 'marriage' meaningless, thus turning the very institution of marriage into little more than a legal construct that has next to no real meaning as it has now been separated from what God has established. Individuals will still respect their marriage but the legalizing of same-sex 'marriage' and using federal law to codify it will eventually erode all respect for what marriage really is and always has been: One man, one woman, willingly joined for life and 'as one'. Homosexuals don't fit that simple description. Making absurd laws pretending that two men or two women are 'married' to each other because the government says so won't fool anyone, least of all, God. Of course, at the rate we're going He may one day be deemed 'illegal'. To quote Cole Porter's great (1934) lyric: ...today, anything goes".

Everyone knows darn well this is DOA in the house, just politics as usual vote pandering throwing red meat to the gays and gay supporters out there.

It’s only meant to ensure that every queer in the country will once again vote for anyone with a (D) after their name, hopefully pulling some Log Cabin republicans over also. The media will be sure to break down the vote count and make it crystal clear that not a single democrat voted against it.

While you're at it, don't forget the canticle of Moses in Deuteronomy 32:

Hear, O you heavens, the things I speak, let the earth give ear to the words of my mouth. 2 Let my doctrine gather as the rain, let my speech distil as the dew, as a shower upon the herb, and as drops upon the grass. 3 Because I will invoke the name of the Lord: give magnificence to our God.

4 The works of God are perfect, and all his ways are judgments: God is faithful and without any iniquity, he is just and right. 5 They have sinned against him, and are none of his children in their filth: they are a wicked and perverse generation. 6 Is this the return you make to the Lord, O foolish and senseless people? Is not he your father, that has possessed you, and made you, and created you? 7 Remember the days of old, think upon every generation: ask your father, and he will declare to you: your elders and they will tell you. 8 When the Most High divided the nations: when he separated the sons of Adam, he appointed the bounds of people according to the number of the children of Israel. 9 But the Lord's portion is his people: Jacob the lot of his inheritance. 10 He found him in a desert land, in a place of horror, and of vast wilderness: he led him about, and taught him: and he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11 As the eagle enticing her young to fly, and hovering over them, he spread his wings, and has taken him and carried him on his shoulders. 12 The Lord alone was his leader: and there was no strange god with him. 13 He set him upon high land: that he might eat the fruits of the fields, that he might suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the hardest stone, 14 butter of the herd, and milk of the sheep with the fat of lambs, and of the rams of the breed of Basan: and goats with the marrow of wheat, and might drink the purest blood of the grape.

15 The beloved grew fat, and kicked: he grew fat, and thick and gross, he forsook God who made him, and departed from God his saviour. 16 They provoked him by strange gods, and stirred him up to anger, with their abominations. 17 They sacrificed to devils and not to God: to gods whom they knew not: that were newly come up, whom their fathers worshipped not. 18 You have forsaken the God that begot you, and have forgotten the Lord that created you.

19 The Lord saw, and was moved to wrath: because his own sons and daughters provoked him. 20 And he said: I will hide my face from them, and will consider what their last end shall be: for it is a perverse generation, and unfaithful children. 21 They have provoked me with that which was no god, and have angered me with their vanities: and I will provoke them with that which is no people, and will vex them with a foolish nation. 22 A fire is kindled in my wrath, and shall burn even to the lowest hell: and shall devour the earth with her increase, and shall burn the foundations of the mountains. 23 I will heap evils upon them, and will spend my arrows among them. 24 They shall be consumed with famine, and birds shall devour them with a most bitter bite: I will send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the fury of creatures that trail upon the ground, and of serpents. 25 Without, the sword shall lay them waste, and terror within, both the young man and the virgin, the sucking child with the man in years.

26 I said: Where are they? I will make the memory of them to cease from among men. 27 But for the wrath of the enemies I have deferred it: lest perhaps their enemies might be proud, and should say: Our mighty hand, and not the Lord, has done all these things. 28 They are a nation without counsel, and without wisdom. 29 O that they would be wise and would understand, and would provide for their last end. 30 How should one pursue after a thousand, and two chase ten thousand? Was it not, because their God had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up? 31 For our God is not as their gods: our enemies themselves are judges. 32 Their vines are of the vineyard of Sodom, and of the suburbs of Gomorrha: their grapes are grapes of gall, and their clusters most bitter. 33 Their wine is the gall of dragons, and the venom of asps, which is incurable. 34 Are not these things stored up with me, and sealed up in my treasures? 35 Revenge is mine, and I will repay them in due time, that their foot may slide: the day of destruction is at hand, and the time makes haste to come. 36 The Lord will judge his people, and will have mercy on his servants: he shall see that their hand is weakened, and that they who were shut up have also failed, and they that remained are consumed.

37 And he shall say: Where are their gods, in whom they trusted? 38 Of whose victims they ate the fat, and drank the wine of their drink offerings: let them arise and help you, and protect you in your distress. 39 See that I alone am, and there is no other God besides me: I will kill and I will make to live: I will strike, and I will heal, and there is none that can deliver out of my hand. 40 I will lift up my hand to heaven, and I will say: I live for ever. 41 If I shall whet my sword as the lightning, and my hand take hold on judgment: I will render vengeance to my enemies, and repay them that hate me. 42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh, of the blood of the slain and of the captivity, of the bare head of the enemies. 43 Praise his people, you nations, for he will revenge the blood of his servants: and will render vengeance to their enemies, and he will be merciful to the land of his people.

May God have mercy on us.

No. But with the current crop of RINO's we're plagued with, I could see this morphing into something like a national 'civil unions' bill, in the House. Every bit as bad as counterfeit marriage.

A lawless president refuses to enforce DOMA, the law of the land. Why is he not impeached for willfull dereliction of duty? A party wholly owned by the advocates of the homosexual agenda leads us down the twin paths of financial ruin and societal degradation. Those who celebrate unions based on unnatural acts repugnant to the wholesome imagination cynically proclaim a “respect” for marriage. How long will this endure?

Horrible as this is, use it:

Black voters have ALWAYS voted against gay marriage.

Blacks voters THAT SHOW UP will overwhelmingly vote for Obama. But perhaps we can lower turnout by reminding them of Zero’s support of gay marriage, and the horrible unemployment that has hammered the black community during his reign.

Every hit we can deliver to his core base is (electorally) deadly. Do it!
