Skip to comments.Obama gay marriage support seen as world precedent (Wink, wink...)
Posted on 05/10/2012 10:25:34 AM PDT by yoe
President Barack Obama's announcement Wednesday that he supports gay marriage boosted the hopes of gay rights groups around the world that other leaders will follow his example, though opponents denounced his switch as a shameless appeal for votes.
Several countries, including Canada, Spain and Argentina, allow same-sex marriage, but far more countries ban it and dozens even prohibit consensual same-sex relations. Gay-rights groups hope Obama's views will inspire more change.
"This is incredibly important, it's excellent news. The United States is a global leader on everything, and that includes gay rights," said Julio Moreira, president of the Rio de Janeiro-based Arco-Iris gay rights group. "This will force other nations like Brazil to move forward with more progressive policies."

According to Shep Smith we have arrived. Any question where this jackass is? He should be kicked off Fox.
How will that play in Mecca? They are so tolerant towards gays......./s
Well, we’re about to find out if he is a world leader. ;-)

When is Larry Sinclair scheduled to visit The White House?
Good job Obama. You just pissed off all the older black voters.
Could hussein obama organised for my gay friends to marry in a mosque ? They would like somewhere special and unusual to do the dirty deed.
Maybe ,hussein obama, coud ask his imam to help with the ceremony .
7 months till we can flush the toilet and wave goodbye to this slimy piece of _ _ _ _!!! (fill in the blank)
This is just another reason he’s going to lose, has to lose in November, ‘cause the people of this GOOD Nation are doubled over throwin’ up sick of the b-stard.
It’s almost as though he lays awake late at night thinkin’ of ways to pervert perversion.
This entire Homosexual Marriage issue is nothing but a front to attack conservative Christian/Jewish religious institutions and a backdoor plan to diminish the age of consent for sex with a minor.
Anyone who has been around homosexuals know that homo’s prey on late teen boys. If the homo’s could legally get even younger teen boys they would.
NAMBLA is still seen as a fringe group but we will start to see a big push by the left to make them more mainstream legitimate.
You would think that he, as a lame duck president would not be making such statements.
(hoping he is a lame duck president)
So what happens to the world on MOTHERS DAY, if the men marry men, and women marry women...which one of the lesbians or homosexual guys are to get the flowers, music and have the rest of us wash the dishes?
Tell your liberal friends that Obamah has evolved to Dick Cheney's stance on homosexual marriage!
Drudge has the link to Cheney's 2009 statements which are 100% identical to what Obamah has now said.
the rest of the world does not understand american politics.
They think the US president is the same as a king.
The rest of the world is actually LAUGHING at obama, not cheering.
Obama is making the Greek politicians look good.
Mother is a four letter word.
He's making such statement precisely because he IS a lame dIck president.
“7 months till we can flush the toilet and wave goodbye to this slimy piece of _ _ _ _!!! (fill in the blank)”
FWIW, it’s just under SIX months until we can flush the peas of sh!t.
He can give his “evolved” opinion on this but, it won’t be codified into law under him.
So Blow me. (can I say that?)
