Colin Powell: I Have 'No Problem' With Gay Marriage
Newsmax ^ | 5/24/12

Posted on 05/27/2012 3:53:22 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

General Colin Powell said on Wednesday that he supports gay marriage, representing a turning point for the former secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

"I have no problem with it," Powell told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview. "In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that's called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president's decision."

Well, General affirmative action, I have “no problem” with you being a phony globalist jackass - in fact, most of us have been aware of it for a long time.

No Colin, that would be civil union.

There was video of this clown singing “YMCA” with a bunch of other goofs a number of years ago at some summit / meeting.

Exactly:

Powell has always been a major suck-butt . It made him a General.

If Obama likes gay marriage, of course Powell likes it too.

Maybe he will get Panetta’s job if he can get Obama elected again.

Colin the traitor will support everything the Messia ‘post racial’ POTUS say as the word of God.

Even if it’s silly and a non sense.

The “good” General forget that mariage is a specific contract founding a family....giving birth to and educating children .....
Poor Mr Powel with his pathetic Messia

Homosexual relationships are tolerated and condoned now, where once they were not, but now that isn’t enough.
Now Powell and other liberals, and libertarians—and the GOPee—want us to ratify and support homosexual unions—they ask for general acceptance (of the farce) of two men together as a couple (or two women) with one being the `husband’ and the other the `wife.’
People of the same sex do not `marry.’ It stands logic on its head. And this isn’t just Powell. This is the position of the Republican party, with Romney leading.

We know LIBERALS don't have a problem with it! Wonder what makes Powell think anyone cares his view on anything.

You aren't alone.

If Obama were to announce a plan to require the addition of e coli fecal matter to the nation's water supply, it would be just a matter of time before Colin Powell would announce that he had no problem with that idea either.

"In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that's called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president's decision."

To anyone born of God, there is no lift in the spirit from reading such words, only a vexing at the deadness issuing from them. In contrast, Paul (the apostle's) words—"But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people"—excite and terrify (because of the seeming impossibility, as we are by God's own design sexual creatures).

God's standards are impossibly high, leading us to Christ as the only One who could keep them for us and as us. The attempt to legitimize homosexuality is a spiritual dead end unsupported by the Lord Jesus.

Good catch. There’s another one, but I can’t find it. He’s doing a group sing with about 5-6 other people.

I remember when I saw it how ridiculous it was. Like the one above, it was during GW2, but can’t remember exact year.
