Obama supports gay marriage: Shep Smith warns GOP not to be ‘on the wrong side of history’
The Cutline ^ | May 9, 2012 | By Dylan Stableford

Posted on 05/09/2012 2:09:19 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Moments after ABC revealed that President Obama said during a taped interview with "Good Morning America" that he supports gay marriage, Fox News' Shepard Smith applauded the president, and warned conservatives not to use the evolution of Obama's view on same sex unions as part of its presidential campaign.

"The President of the United States, now in the 21st century," Smith said. "What I'm most curious about, in this time of rising debts and medical issues and all the rest, if Republicans would go out on a limb and try to make this a campaign issue while sitting very firmly, without much question, on the wrong side of history."

Shep’s lusting to “marry” the Illegal, just after Moochelle “marries” Oprah.

Shep Smith apparently has never heard of Sodem and Gamora. The history of humans has indeed evolved over the centuries. Perhaps Smith will read a bit of history about how events and behavior have the Creator’s attention and consequences.

He was big in chorus and glee club and never competed in sports if that tells you anything.

But did he drink mineral water?

Will Shep might be right. There is a serious, serious problem in fight to keep 2 f*ggots from marrying each other.

If you look at this link,

http://www.gallup.com/poll/147662/first-time-majority-americans-favor-legal-gay-marriage.aspx

you’ll see that younger people generally favor gay marriage. The problem is, young people eventually become old and old people become dead. If this trend continues unabated... we’re screwed.

If we can’t figure out how to convince young people of what will happen to the US of A should gay marriage become legal we will all suffer for their shortsightedness. Honestly my nephews simply don’t see what the problem is with it and their uncle has lost his marbles I just can’t change their minds.

I’m with you. I would NOT bring a child into this world at this time.

Teenagers are beginning to get depressed. There use to be a light at the end of the tunnel. America would always be great.

Now?

A day or two ago, Shep said (paraphrasing) Republicans needed to be "dragged into the 21st century." Aside from this being incredibly biased and obnoxious--on what is supposed to be a news program, not an opinion program--Shep also consistently pulls Fox New's lowest afternoon and evening ratings. It's truly a mystery why he's still around. It's not that most Fox viewers disagree with him, it's that he's so d*mn smarmy and offensive when giving his opinion.

Makes a nice model for a gargoyle building sculpture. Hang it outside your place of business to scare off the riff raff—or maybe attract them instead?

We have regularly won vote after vote on this issue.

I heard on the radio today (Jay Severin in Boston) that there have been 38 state votes on this matter over the years. Current tally is...

Allowing homosexual marriage = 0
Upholding traditional marriage between man and woman = 38

So the homosexual lobby is 0 for 38 so far. I think the GOP does not have to worry about being on the "wrong side" of this issue.

Anderson Copper has Shep beat because

  1. Shep has not come out....yet
  2. Copper and his boyfriend spent $3 million renovating a NYC firehouse for their abode....which is hilariously gay
  3. I will admit Shep wears more eye shadow or whatever that black sh#t is

Well Shep the wrong side of history is when an American President helps perverts push the greatest Nation in the world down the crap hole.
No nation that accepts perverts as normal can survive. So Shep, you and the ass hat Obama are the ones on the wrong side of history......

Dear Mrs. Smith..... GO.... F*CK..... YOURSELF

Do NOT lose sight of that folks.

What’s wrong with Shepherd Smith, anyway? He’s lost sooo much weight, he’s skinnier than Obama and seems to have taken to wearing heavily padded sports coats on the air.
