-Mixed Messages From Pres. Obama on Same–Sex Marriage

by Dr. D ~ September 10th, 2009

During his campaign for president, Barack Obama said that he was for civil unions and against gay marriage. Early on his administration defended DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) in court against a lawsuit that was attempting to overturn it. However the Obama administration recently flip-flopped on this issue and actually went out of their way the last week of August and filed court papers claiming that DOMA was discriminatory and unconstitutional.

The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) defines marriage as between one man and one woman as the only legal marriages recognized by the Federal government. The Gay rights lobby has applied considerable pressure on the President to change sides on this issue. If DOMA is reversed in court than the federal government and eventually all of the states could be forced to recognize same-sex marriages and the redefinition of marriage in America will become complete regardless of whether the people support it or not.

Many of his Christian supporters are now asking- "What does he really believe?" Some have even registered a sort of ‘buyers remorse’ after 7 months of his administration. Interestingly, even a number of black Pastors and leaders recently sent a letter to the President challenging him on this issue and voicing their discontent—here’s a quote from it:

"The danger for your administration would be that many of these people may write you off as being anti-traditional Christianity and may decide to voice their displeasure at the ballot box. All of us have heard a growing discontentment with your social stances in all communities, even the black church world. Socially conservative faith groups like ours can either fan the flames of controversy or pour water on fires of discontent."
