-Obama Comes Out of The Closet for Gay Marriage

President Obama has now come out in favor of same-sex marriage. While running for president in 2008 he officially supported traditional marriage between and a man and a woman. However, in the wind up toward the 2012 election he admits a change of heart and now officially supports gay marriage.

Here’s the story from ABC News:

President Obama has abandoned his longstanding opposition to same-sex marriage but says the decision on whether or not to legalize the unions should be left up to individual states, which are "arriving at different conclusions at different times."

"I think that’s a healthy process and a healthy debate," Obama told ABC News’ Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview on "Good Morning America."   …

"This debate is taking place at a local level," he said. "And I think the whole country is evolving and changing. And, you know, one of the things that I’d like to see is that a conversation continue in a respectful way."

Thirty states now have constitutional amendments or statutes banning same-sex marriage. Six states plus the District of Columbia have legalized the unions. The issue will be put directly to voters in Minnesota, Maine, Washington and Maryland in November.

Response: This was an issue that was heating up with both sides demanding that the President come clean on the issue. While Pres. Obama said that he supported traditional marriage his administration obviously hasn’t.

The Obama justice department under Eric Holder went out of their way to condemn DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) which is the law of the land and have refused to support it in court which was actually their duty.

The actions of the administration are inexplicable if the President really supported traditional marriage. At the very least, President Obama has been lukewarm. However, I believe that we should take him at his word that his opinions on the matter have been in transition and have substantially changed just in time for the next election.

Also, I guess we should take him at his word that he sees this as a matter to be settled locally in the states rather than by some federal mandate. This runs counter to his usual mode of operation which is to run roughshod over the states with the use of executive orders and departmental policies.                   *Top
