Panderer...thy name is Obama
By: Diane Sori
First Barack Hussein Obama favors gay marriage (February 1996), then he doesn’t (June 2004), now he does again (May 9, 2012)...talk about flip-flopping or better yet, talk about a desperate man desperately pandering for votes!
“I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages,” he wrote in February 1996.
“What I believe is that marriage is between a man and a woman … What I believe, in my faith, is that a man and a woman, when they get married, are performing something before God, and it’s not simply the two persons who are meeting,” he said when running for the U.S. Senate in 2004.
"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," he said last night on ABC TV.
Major flip-flops here with all sorts of flipping in between.
Hmmmmm...serious quandary here, Mr. Obama. You claim to be a Christian yet Christian theology does NOT condone homosexuality. (“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22, King James Bible, Cambridge Ed.)
Now we all know you really are a muslim, and as such islam does NOT condone homosexuality either, at least so says the qur’an. ("We also sent Lut : He said to his people : "Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you? For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds." Qur'an 7:80-81.)
So, Mr. Obama, whether you are a Christian or even if in reality you are a muslim, how can you condone same sex marriage when homosexuality itself is condemned by both faiths. BOTH have a differing opinion than you have publically now taken, so, Mr. Obama, you have gone against your professed religious beliefs no matter WHICH religious tag is placed on you!
This, sir, goes beyond mere flip-flopping...it goes all the way into out and out heresy and pandering on your part! If you believe in the Bible as Christians do OR if you believe and follow the qur’an as muslims do, your stance is contradictory to both, and sadly, you just don’t care as long as your stance will get you the gay support.
This is about as low as one can go for you are using the gay community NOT to help them but to help yourself to their votes! The equal rights issue for gays concerning domestic partnerships, marriage, or whatever one chooses to call it, should be up to the individual states and the voters to decide NOT be up to you to put your two sense in to use these people and this hot button issue for your political fodder.
Also, Mr. Obama, why is it OK for you to flip-flop on the gay marriage issue but it is NOT OK for your rival, Mitt Romney, to change his mind on abortion. As a Christian, if you really are a Christian that is, isn’t it your obligation to try and bring pro-choice individuals over to your professed Christianity’s pro-life side...I always thought it was. I thought that as a Christian, as you claim to be, that you’d put politics aside and be happy that Romney has become even more pro-life than he was before. But NO, all you and your minions do is defame Romney’s stance on this issue while you pander to the gay community for their votes, and you do so with that big stupid smile on your face that you always wear while on your, ‘ME, ME, ME...It’s All About ME’ Tour!
I just hope and pray that the gay community sees through your phony façade, and sees how they are being used just for their votes for we all know you will stab them in the back just as you will do to all the minorities you are pandering to.
Mr. Obama, the only flipping that will be done in November is flipping you right out of a job!
