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.
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
This stance on DOMA is going to write the argument for requiring the respecting of concealed carry rights in gun free cities.
Sooooo, that’s what your rational discourse is like? Oh, sweet irony can be so subtle.
Just for the record I still agree with your sentiments, no matter how annoying the messenger may be. Godspeed.
DISTRACT, DISTRACT, DISTRACT...
Bad economic headlines likely coming on Tuesday, Obama needs to steal the news cycle.
That’s how these leftist morons think.
I’m going to place this infernal netbook under the wheel of my car and in the morning when I back out be done with it...
Boehner is as useless as those fake bull nuts some idiots hang on the back of their pick-up.
Profoundly stated, Sir Dashwood!
And many on this site are going to vote for Obama out of their delusional nonsense that mittens is worse than Obama
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.
Didn’t Ricky Martin endorse Bush once?
Seems some entertainers will cozy up to a politician for access, rather than ideology.
So much for letting the states decide....
The people that voted for Obama should be exiled. I knew the man was not fit for office!! The people that voted for him have absolutely no excuse! The only good democrat is...ok I am feeling charitable today, the only good Democrat is a former one
Hillary and Bill are no better than Obama btw
Gay marriage is the Rubicon and Obama is no Caesar.
Ricky probably woke up with a horse’s head in his bed after that one.
If Obama was impeached or looses the election it won’t stop what’s coming.It will continue under whomever is elected.It may slow down or temporarily pause, but it won’t stop.
He’s writing the campaign against himself: “First, the focus on government-mandated health care, then on pushing gay marriage. This president is focused on everything but what he should be: the economy.”
You’re absolutely right.
Obama’s going down. His sudden focus on gay marriage is a desperation move to raise cash from the far left and to change the topic from the economy and the likely rollback of Obamacare by SCOTUS.
