Some people are confused!
• “Why doesn’t Barack Obama just come out in support of gay marriage?” asks the Guardian. Uh, because he doesn’t believe in it?
• “‘The gay community was fully happy in their belief that he ‘wink, wink’ supported it,’ a top Democratic communications strategist said,” says Politico. Then they are fools?
• “Obama, who supports most gay rights, has stopped short of backing gay marriage. Without clarification, he’s said for the past year and a half that his personal views on the matter are ‘evolving,'” says AP.
Okay, all of this is totally weird election-year baloney. Whatever gays have talked themselves into believing that Obama “secretly” supports gay marriage, and is going to make a big reveal the day after he’s reelected… well, get ready. Barack Obama is, and always has been, despite what he may have written on some gay group’s questionnaire in 1996 or said into a hot mic, opposed to gay marriage because he is a Christian. He can say his ideas are “evolving” all he wants, but, you know, he’s been president for a term and they haven’t “evolved,” even with all that gay money being stuffed down his pants. Let’s flashback to 2008: “As a Christian—he is a member of the United Church of Christ—Mr. Obama believes that marriage is a sacred union, a blessing from God, and one that is intended for a man and a woman exclusively, according to these supporters and Obama campaign advisers…. ‘I’m a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.'” There. Could he be more direct? Even George Pataki, who is about as smart as the side of a barn, understands this! Could everyone stop being weird?
