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. ;-)
awright! the great evolver has finally arrived at american exceptionalism! /sarc
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?)
Older black voters will still turn out in November and vote for him.
What Obama has done is legitimize homosexuality for the black community. He just gave cover to black men who believe having sex with men does not make them homosexual. It’s now “normal”.
Obama has just guaranteed a decrease in the black birth rate as black men embrace homosexual relationships and an increase in HIV/AIDS in both black men and women. But you will never hear the liberal press and Hollywood trumpeting those accomplishments.
Shep is probably out chasing bears.. Daddy bears.
Obama’s proclamation has ZERO influence on blacks. Racism trumps all in the black community and they’d vote for Obama even if he reinstated slavery. The church, religion and God? Racism trumps THAT too.
Believe me or not. It’s your choice. I have a “friend” who is a operative in the Obama campaign. He just informed me that the Obama campaign has decided to divert a significant amount of funds earmarked for the Daily Kos and Democratic Underground and instead funnel them to the Free Republic.
I was told the logic is that the Free Republic is spouting a equal amount of hate towards Romney as the Kos and DU are, but there is one big difference. The Kos and DU are preaching to the choir meanwhile the Free Republic is reaching readers that would normally vote for the republican candidate, and the Obama team feels that a typical Romney voter that is persuaded to stay home or vote for a minor 3rd party candidate instead of Romney, is just as valuable to him as a typical democrat that Kos or DU convinces to vote for Obama.
It looks like Free Republics money problems will soon be a thing of the past, as long as the freepers keep up the Romney hate than Obama and Axelrod will make sure you have all the money you need.
This bizarre turn of events would be almost funny if it was not 100% true ...
without offspring evolved can never work.
without offspring there is only evolutionary failure.
All the info needed to bash Romney can be found at FreeRepublic, not doubt about dat.
I bet he has no trouble at all picking up a date at the public toilet.
I believe you not! Welcome to Free Republic.
I doubt it. Their "blackness" & affinity for a hardcore socialist/welfare/nanny-state/big gubmint brotha like 0dumb0 will trump any fake concern on their part for traditional marriage values. Just like black "evangelicals" will fall in place & vote for 0dumb0 once again. They may be "evangelicals" but they're not truly born-again, saved Christians. They are false prophets & false teachers!
For liberals/socialists/fascists/communists/special minority protected classes, the advancement of their marxist ideology (which is their one & only true religion), will ALWAYS trump any other issue.... 2nd amendment, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, moral issues, pro-life, etc. The same 98% dumb-ass blacks will vote once again for 0dumb0 no matter what he says or does. The only reason a few more of them might not vote for 0dumb0 is if they are too drugged up or still high from the night before.

They’ll still vote 95% Obama, but the turnout will be much less.
