Obama's Blow for Bigotry

Today remains Thursday, 5 August 2010.

Obama regime political hack David Axelrod today said, "The president does oppose same-sex marriage, but he supports equality for gay and lesbian couples, and benefits and other issues, and that has been effectuated in federal agencies under his control."

This is not equality; this position is bullshit.

Obama has previously said he believes that regulation of marriage should be a state issue. (Perhaps Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii after all, but in Mississippi. Hmmm.)

By Obama’s twisted rationalization, states should be free to make laws that “coloreds” are as equally free to sit only in the back of the bus as whites are equally free to sit in the front of the bus.

By the same token, state laws should be free to prohibit “mongrels” like Obama from further diluting his precious white blood by marrying at all, just as “pure” white folks should be equally free to marry only within their own gene pool.

Marriage is a civil and secular institution which should be defined on the federal level as open to and equal for all. Marriage is not the private property of homophobic bigots and their pissant pseudo-Christian hate cults.

Grow some spine, Obama, and get with the program. And, while you’re at it, end homophobic discrimination in the military now.

Your comments are quite right, actually. "Marriage" IS absolutely a civil, secular, legal contract which recognizes a social union. Although people marry for many reasons (social, economic, spiritual, emotional, religious), the "marriage" itself is a binding legal contract recognized by the state (meaning government, not individual states), which changes the personal, legal status of the individuals entering into it.

In overturning Proposition 8, passed by voters in November 2008 (in California), U.S. District Chief Judge Walker determined that the measure violated the federal constitutional rights of gays and lesbians to marry the partners of their choice, and that it "both unconstitutionally burdens the exercise of the fundamental right to marry and creates an irrational classification on the basis of sexual orientation."

Vaughn added: Same-sex couples "seek to have the state recognize their committed relationships, and those relationships are consistent with the core of the history, tradition and practice of marriage in the United States."

There is no rational basis for the denial of the right to marry to same-sex couples; thus, it is unconstitutional. And a constitutional scholar such as Obama knows it.

Thoughtful post and right on point, HH. "Marriage is not the private property of homophobic bigots and their pissant pseudo-Christian hate cults." I intend to remember that quote... Truer words were never spoken.
