Obama Announces Plans to Repeal Defense of Marriage Act
Gawker | Monday, May 14, 2012 | Louis Peitzman

Source link. Click at your own risk.

You spoke too soon, Rand Paul. It sounds like the President's views on marriage just got even gayer.

Somewhat buried in CNN's story on Barack Obama's fundraiser in New York is this little tidbit about his administration's plans for marriage equality—

He also outlined goals he hopes to accomplish under a second term, including the repeal of the Defense Of Marriage Act, which the administration has already stopped defending.

This is the first time Obama has said that he wil actively work to repeal the law.

At the fundraiser, hosted by openly gay pop star Ricky Martin, Obama called same-sex marriage the "right thing to do." He also said that contrary to what many rightwing pundits have alleged, marriage equality will help families.

My apologies for the source, but they are the only one leading with this and it's a clean report, surprisingly for them.

Same sex marriage is not the “right thing to do” it is clearly the wrong thing to do.

The House should have convened Impeachment hearings 5 minutes after Obama announced he wouldn’t defend DOMA. It’s a clear violation of the Oath of Office.

Just hours before, in an interview taped for broadcast tomorrow on The View, Obama dodge a question about repealing DOMA:

Just days after affirming his support for same-sex marriage, President Obama Monday declined to say whether he would go a step further and publicly take up the fight to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

While the administration has already stopped defending legal challenges to the legislation, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, the president said the rest is up to Capitol Hill.

“Congress is clearly on notice that I think it’s a bad idea,” the president said in an interview on ABC’s The View.

As the citizens in 31 states have declared. Gay marriage is just wrong no matter how the bullies try to demonize the vast majority that are against it. The gay community wants to be accepted as “normal” so badly . It’s never going to happen no matter how hard they try.

Let him keep talking. I have a hunch that a large majority of Americans are opposed to this-—and that obammy now stands a bigger chance of losing his election............

The Democrats want to first molest the minds of children and then molest their bodies later.

People just don’t want to pay public welfare benefits for two lunatics sodding off all day.

Muslims would just kill homosexuals.

Taking into consideration broken clocks tell the correct time twice each day, maybe “spread the other cheek” is not a good public policy.

In your unabridged Oxford Dictionaries, the word “faggotry” denotes the bundling of steel to be hammered or rolled together.

Mammalian evolution is entirely heterosexual.

Monogamy is not required for evolution, monogamy is a tenet of religion.

To prohibit polyandry and polygyny is an ecclesiastic rule of law.

To establish an ecclesiastic standard of monogamy for homosexuals is nothing but RELIGIOUS FAGGOTRY.

Democrats live in a fantasy world where fairies wave magic wands over their anus and babies materialize out of thin air.

All men are born of a woman.

If you have to tell grown men that babies will not come out of their rectums, there is no hope for any rational discourse...

I don’t think this emphasis on gay marriage is helping Obama at all, and I hope he and his media friends keep it up.

>Same sex marriage is not the “right

I agree with you. The problem is that the “younglings” just don’t see the danger that you and I do. The under 30 crowd has no issues with gay marriage (it’s like 80/20). If we don’t change that, it’s all over in 15-20 years as the older generations find their reward and “younglings” age into the majority.

And, of course, to the victors goes the right to write history. I suspect that not only we will lose this fight if we can’t turn things around (and fast) but we will be vilified in the history books.

Well if this is such a great idea he should just do it now instead of waiting for a 2nd term. He is a liar and if he does get reelected I do not think he will get congress to repeal DOMA, he is just saying he will to get the votes. I know some people think he is gay but I don't think he
likes gay people it is just an act for him. I think he despises gay people and is playing to their own perceived vulnerabilities.

It looks that way. In the CBS/NY Times poll released tonight Romney is leading Obama among registered women voters by two points (46 - 44). That's an eight point switch from last month when Obama was up by six points among registered women voters (43- 49.)

Once upon a time, public schools promoted shared American values with bible reading, prayers, and moralistic lessons of the sort found in the McGuffey Readers. Now they promote "tolerance" and "diversity" non-stop, even to the exclusion of reading, writing and arithmetic. Is it any wonder the kids come out stupid and amoral?

Anything to distract from his failures. And the media is all too happy to help him set the narrative.

I just hope that they started this spiel too soon as there is still a lot of time left before the election. If we can force the focus back on jobs and the economy, he will still go down in all his flaming glory.

It will come with special rights to the homos to dictate sexuality to the public. Finally, the feminazis will legally dominate our society (heterosexuals). If you want to know where they are headed first, look to California where parents are deemed criminal for resisting their children’s “choice” to be molested by homos.

What's he doing to foster the creation of private sector jobs, lower food and energy costs(and unburden the domestic o&g industry), balance the budget, root out fraud within govt prgms? Those are just a few of the issues every GOP candidate needs to be harping on.

Will the libs have to consistency to “villify” Christ as well for this statement:

‘He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”’-Matthew 19:4-6

In 2001, Barack Hussein Obama’s mentor Bill Ayers wrote a book recounting his experiences with the Weather Underground.

Among the details covered in the 9-11-2001 NY Times article was a quote from William Ayers that he engaged in partner swapping and even homosexual encounters with the Weather Underground to “smash monogamy”.

When a Marxist terrorist radical admits that the goal of such actions are to subvert traditional marriage, I don’t need some homosexual with a newspaper column to ask “how does same sex marriage threaten heterosexuals marriages?”.

The goal is to undermine the institution of marriage. Feminazis and Hugh Hefner tried to do the same.
