Supporters and critics of President Obamas endorsement of same-sex marriage agree on one thing: He may not be finished evolving on the subject.
Despite his comments that he thinks the matter should be left to the states, many gay rights advocates strongly believe that it must be dealt with nationally and that Obama is quietly on their side. Conservative critics of the president suspect the same, citing this as one way the president might tack left if reelected.
And some Obama supporters who are uncomfortable with same-sex marriage fear that in a second term, he would come under enormous pressure to back efforts to impose the legalization of such unions at the federal level.
For right now, he has said he is going to leave it to the states. Whether he continues to evolve his word toward further action, I cant know that, said the Rev. Joel Hunter, a spiritual adviser to the president who opposes same-sex marriage. I can tell you without a doubt theres a lot of fear right now from religious communities . . . about where its all going to go.

Many nations have lost their empires. The USA is next. We have have turned our backs on God. Thrown Him out of the school house, the court house and are even throwing him out of some church houses. America is going down into the pits of hell. It is a self inflicted wound. God is judging American RIGHT NOW. He is turning His back on us. He is pulling away His protections and support. Thus, we will pay the penalty. Our leaders in Congress, the White House, etc. are piling it on and He is going to punish us for it.
As Billy Graham said, If God doesn’t punish us, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.
Amen. Yes sir. Correct.

I think they call what Bammy is doing, de-evolution. It is in line with his regressiveness.
