He is quite evolved, you know.
President Obama today announced that he now supports same-sex marriage, reversing his longstanding opposition amid growing pressure from the Democratic base and even his own vice president.
In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, the president described his thought process as an “evolution” that led him to this place, based on conversations with his own staff members, openly gay and lesbian service members, and conversations with his wife and own daughters.
"I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told Roberts, in an interview to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday. Excerpts of the interview will air tonight on ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer.” - Source
"The president stressed that this is a personal position, and that he still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own..."
North Carolina just did that yesterday:
RALEIGH -- North Carolina has become the 31st state to add an amendment on marriage to its constitution, with voters banning same-sex marriage and barring legal recognition of unmarried couples by state and local governments.The North Carolina vote is encouraging. Minnesota votes on the same amendment issue in November.
The Obama rationalization is the new equality bandwagon - in fact it's coming pretty close to saying, "We don't want gay couples to have to live in sin - if they can get married, everything will be fine." Which in reality means that 'gay is normal' and must be accepted as such. The very first mistake is to consider same sex romance/relationships/partnerships as being equal to heterosexual romance/relationships/partnerships - or same sex cohabitation as the same thing as opposite sex cohabitation. They are similar, but they are not the same. Pretending they are the same is the why and wherefore in the growing acceptance of same sex marriage. Homosexual acts never rise above the level of mutual masturbation, they are impotent parodies of the conjugal act, incapable of reproduction - which is precisely why they are gravely disordered.
Obama and the supporters of same sex marriage remain snared in a diabolical delusion.
