Obama: Ditch Religious Convictions About Same-Sex Marriage Already

President Barack Obama urged supporters of same-sex marriage Friday to “help” people to overcome their religious convictions, so they are no longer held back from a progressive American view of equality.

 

“I know that Americans of goodwill continue to hold a wide range of views on this issue,” he said in a speech following the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling to Constitutionally recognize same-sex marriage. He initially espoused respect for those who disagree with the ruling.

 

“Opposition in some cases has been based on sincere and deeply held beliefs,” he said. “All of us who welcome today’s news should be mindful of that fact. Recognize different viewpoints. Revere our deep commitment to religious freedom.”

 

“But today should also give us hope that on the many issues with which we grapple often painfully real change is possible,” he continued, abruptly switching gears, clearly implying that those who disagree must come around to the more righteous, more American, and more equal view of marriage.

Not sure how checking your morality works with the 5th commandment –

 

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

 

Apparently, we’re not supposed to care if we don’t have long upon the land. The politics of expediency will save us…

I don't doubt that the President will be a major part of the cheerleading section when government starts affirmatively penalizing conservative churches. But--lets be honest--that's not what he's saying, at least if the article is accurate. He's saying that he thinks his own opinions are right, those who disagree with him are wrong, and he hopes they'll change their minds. It's pretty standard political fare.

He IS the major cheerleader through virtue of his ownership of the bully pulpit. State gov'ts nave ALREADY begun to penalize people for following their conscience and not supporting homosexual marriage. To think the Fed govt will lose any time, not in hoping people will change their minds, but in using whatever means they have to punish Christians who don't support homosexual marriage to force them to change their minds is a flight of fantasy.

No thanks Obama. I'll bitterly cling to my guns and religion.
