Michelle Obama refers to daughters in explaining support of same-sex marriage (teaches them values)
The Hill ^ | June 1, 2012 | Alicia M. Cohn

First lady Michelle Obama, adding her support to her husband’s endorsement of same-sex marriage, said this week she supports marriage equality because she believes in the “basic values” of fairness and equality she taught her daughters.

“In a country where we teach our children that everyone is equal under the law, discriminating against same-sex couples just isn't right,” she said in a video posted by the White House on Thursday night. “It's as simple as that.”

The video featured Michelle Obama answering a series of questions asked through Twitter.

In the video, Obama doubled as a campaign surrogate for her husband. Her response on marriage equality was accompanied by pictures of toddlers and what appear to be their same-sex parents. President Obama earlier this month said he personally supports legalizing same-sex marriage, and the campaign quickly unveiled merchandise and groups devoted to LGBT rights who support Obama, making it a strong theme in his reelection campaign.

“For Barack and me it really comes down to the values of fairness and equality that we want to pass down to our girls,” she said. “I mean, these are basic values that kids learn at a very young age and that we encourage them to apply in all areas of their lives.”

Apparently what is NOT being taught is the difference between right and wrong.

Everyone already was equal under the law. What democrats want to achieve is to use a person’s sexual behavior to make some more equal then others under the law.

The first behavior will be homosexuality that we will be forced to treat as being protected. Then it may be polygamy or incest or S&M behavior or transexuality (already happening) or pedophelia, etc……

The fascist agenda of democrat is not for equality but for destroying true equality. They always have been and are the party of the KKK and is incredible that they are getting to redefine civil rights in America in a way that will really destroy civil rights without anyone in the MSM even mentioning their true history on the issue.

Michelle Obama is off limits to criticism - she's a "civilian".

But she sure jumps into every political issue there is.

The Obama children are off limits to critics, criticism or the press - after all, they're "civilians" too.

But it's okay for the parents to use them to make a political point or to gain sympathy.

The wookie is being truthful to her children:

Kids, we have equality in our family. You have two moms.

“everyone is equal...” (but some more equal than others—eh?)
If they are teaching their children that everyone is equal then tell me why the wild animus toward orthodox Christians and Jews Why the outrage against Conservatives —or Patriotic Citizens? tell me if you can.

Well, Mrs. Obama, perhaps you do not understand the situation. You should look into it before you give your daughters bad advice.

Men living together are friends. Women living together are friends. We should not discriminate against them because they are same sex couples. But they are friends, not spouses.

Just because they covet what they cannot have, does not mean the government should pretend that they are equal to a man and a woman who are married. Simple biology confirms that male and female genitalia are made for union. Union can only be achieved by male/male or female/female couples by unnatural sexual activity that leads to a shorter life span, and serious risk of both mental and physical ailments.

You love and treat them with respect, but you do not change the law for a very stupid reason that will mock marriage and compromise the health and safety of the people you have pledged to protect.

Pathetic. Gays have all the same rights as straights - each "group" has the right to marry ONE spouse of the OPPOSITE sex. No need to get theology involved in this asine argument. I have no more rights than a GAY person. I cannot marry my sister, my dog, more than one woman etc.

The older one looks “something”...maybe “confused” is it. Looking more and more like her angry, giant mother, every day. Can’t wait until this group goes away.

Couldn’t agree with you more, Pigsley! BTW, Mrs. Bush looked polished at the WH yesterday while Moochelle had on another typically hideous, inappropriate get-up again!

This is child abuse, and social services should take the Obama children and put them in a safe environment.

I wonder what the reaction would be if one on the daughters was found with her lesbian lover smoking dope.

Your 1/2 and I'll raise you another 1/2. The wookie ain't human, it's a strange looking thing but kinda female.

That makes the calculation = 1.

The only get up I couldn't forget was in a picture of the wookie in a green dress...CAUTION: what you'll see can't be unseen! I'll be interested to hear your take on it.

I'm pinging mojitojoe to ping us both with the grand true picture, which I thought was a photoshop, but it isn't!

TIA, Joe!
