SPEAK ON IT: President Obama OFFICIALLY Endorses Legalization Of Gay Marriage

President Barack Obama just dropped a bomb on the American public today.  After much debate for years on how Mr. President would and should address the issue, even after endorsing "civil unions" during his Presidency, he said today he personally endorses the legalization of same sex marriage.

 

His interview clip inside...

In an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, which will air in full tomorrow (Thursday) on "Good Morning America," President Obama finally spoke with conviction about the hot button issue of same-sex marriage.  While approximately 30 states have laws that actually outlaw same-sex marriage, Obama has taken his pro-civil union stance one step further to endorse the legalization of same-sex marriage.

"I have to tell you that 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," Obama told Roberts in an interview to appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" Thursday.

The President mentioned Sasha & Malia's role in forming his opinion.  After sitting around the dinner table with his young daughters, and hearing them speak about their school friends who have same-sex parents, it was a normal occurrence for them that was part of their everyday life.  It was easy to see that the same sex opposition was possibly even generational:

"It's interesting, some of this is also generational," the president continued. "You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same-sex equality or, you know, sexual orientation, that they believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we're talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn't dawn on them that somehow their friends' parents would be treated differently. It doesn't make sense to them and, frankly, that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective."

And on whether First Lady Michelle Obama and faith were instrumental in his decision:

"This is something that, you know, we've talked about over the years and she, you know, she feels the same way, she feels the same way that I do. And that is that, in the end the values that I care most deeply about and she cares most deeply about is how we treat other people and, you know, I, you know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it's also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated. And I think that's what we try to impart to our kids and that's what motivates me as president and I figure the most consistent I can be in being true to those precepts, the better I'll be as a as a dad and a husband and, hopefully, the better I'll be as president."

So...what are your thoughts?  Do you agree with the President?  Will this affect his re-election come this November from either direction?

SPEAK ON IT!

I am a pan-sexual (gender blind, I like people, not genders) teenage girl, and I have gained COMPLETE respect of Obama. Points I'd like to make ~If God hates gays SO much, why did he make them (considering the bible says that God creates everyone and everything) ~If God didn't want people to be homosexual, he wouldn't have given them free will. ~ You all can continue to hate gays, but it will not do a DAMN THING TO STOP IT. ~In 100 years, when we'll all be dead, and the LGBT community will be FLOURISHING! :) Have fun bitching you old fools.

Everything you just said is

Everything you just said is true. Do you want to hear something stupid? The U.S. is so screwed up that in 6 states, gay marriage is legal. In 23 states, it's legal to have sex with a bloody horse! I believe that people who think that gay rights is dumb should go die. Anywhere. I am a bisexual, and I consider myself lucky to be able to love both genders. So do my friends who are the same way, and my straight (stupid labels) friends support us all, knowing we're going to get serious shit for our sexuality in the future, but we will stay strong and not be forced to say that we're not gay rights supporters, gay, or bisexual. These stupid laws and disbelievers can fook outta their mouths all they want, but it won't stop the fact that we are gay or bi, and PROUD. HEAR THAT HATERS OUT THERE!?! We are proud.

What same-sex "marriage" has

What same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts It's far worse than most people realize October 20, 2008 by Brian Camenker [NOTE: For a 4-page printable version (PDF format) CLICK HERE.] Anyone who thinks that same-sex “marriage” is a benign eccentricity which won’t affect the average person should consider what it has done in Massachusetts. It’s become a hammer to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on everyone. And this train is moving fast. What has happened so far is only the beginning. On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced its Goodridge opinion, ruling that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex “marriage.” Six months later, homosexual marriages began to be performed. The public schools The homosexual “marriage” onslaught in public schools across the state started soon after the November 2003, court decision. •At my own children's high school there was a school-wide assembly to celebrate same-sex “marriage” in early December, 2003. It featured an array of speakers, including teachers at the school who announced that they would be “marrying” their same-sex partners and starting families either through adoption or artificial insemination. Literature on same-sex marriage – how it is now a normal part of society – was handed out to the students. •Within months it was brought into the middle schools. In September, 2004, an 8th-grade teacher in Brookline, MA, told National Public Radio that the marriage ruling had opened up the floodgates for teaching homosexuality. “In my mind, I know that, `OK, this is legal now.' If somebody wants to challenge me, I'll say, `Give me a break. It's legal now,'” she told NPR. She added that she now discusses gay sex with her students as explicitly as she desires. For example, she said she tells the kids that lesbians can have vaginal intercourse using sex toys. •By the following year it was in elementary school curricula. Kindergartners were given picture books telling them that same-sex couples are just another kind of family, like their own parents. In 2005, when David Parker of Lexington, MA – a parent of a kindergartner – strongly insisted on being notified when teachers were discussing homosexuality or transgenderism with his son, the school had him arrested and put in jail overnight. Second graders at the same school were read a book, “King and King”, about two men who have a romance and marry each other, with a picture of them kissing. When parents Rob and Robin Wirthlin complained, they were told that the school had no obligation to notify them or allow them to opt-out their child. •In 2006 the Parkers and Wirthlins filed a federal Civil Rights lawsuit to force the schools to notify parents and allow them to opt-out their elementary-school children when homosexual-related subjects were taught. The federal judges dismissed the case. The judges ruled that because same-sex marriage is legal in Massachusetts, the school actually had a duty to normalize homosexual relationships to children, and that schools have no obligation to notify parents or let them opt-out their children! Acceptance of homosexuality had become a matter of good citizenship! Think about that: Because same-sex marriage is “legal”, a federal judge has ruled that the schools now have a duty to portray homosexual relationships as normal to children, despite what parents think or believe! •In 2006, in the elementary school where my daughter went to Kindergarten, the parents of a third-grader were forced to take their child out of school because a man undergoing a sex-change operation and cross-dressing was being brought into class to teach the children that there are now “different kinds of families.” School officials told the mother that her complaints to the principal were considered “inappropriate behavior.” •Libraries have also radically changed. School libraries across the state, from elementary school to high school, now have shelves of books to normalize homosexual behavior and the lifestyle in the minds of kids, some of them quite explicit and even pornographic. Parents complaints are ignored or met with hostility. Over the past year, homosexual groups have been using taxpayer money to distribute a large, slick hardcover book celebrating homosexual marriage titled “Courting Equality” into every school library in the state. •It’s become commonplace in Massachusetts schools for teachers to prominently display photos of their same-sex “spouses” and occasionally bring them to school functions. Both high schools in my own town now have principals who are “married” to their same-sex partners, whom they bring to school and introduce to the students. •“Gay days” in schools are considered necessary to fight “intolerance” which may exist against same-sex relationships. Hundreds of high schools and even middle schools across the state now hold “gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender appreciation days”. They “celebrate” homosexual marriage and move forward to other behaviors such as cross-dressing and transsexuality. In my own town, a school committee member recently announced that combating “homophobia” is now a top priority. Once homosexuality has been normalized, all boundaries will come down. The schools are already moving on to normalizing transgenderism (including cross-dressing and sex changes). The state-funded Commission on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth includes leaders who are transsexuals. Public health •The Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health is “married” to another man. In 2007 he told a crowd of kids at a state-sponsored youth event that it’s “wonderful being gay” and he wants to make sure there’s enough HIV testing available for all of them. •Since homosexual marriage became “legal” the rates of HIV / AIDS have gone up considerably in Massachusetts. This year public funding to deal with HIV/AIDS has risen by $500,000. As the homosexual lobby group MassEquality wrote to their supporters after successfully persuading the Legislature to spend that money: "With the rate of HIV infections rising dramatically in Massachusetts, it's clear the fight against AIDS is far from over." •Citing “the right to marry” as one of the “important challenges” in a place where “it’s a great time to be gay”, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health helped produce The Little Black Book, Queer in the 21st Century, a hideous work of obscene pornography which was given to kids at Brookline High School on April 30, 2005. Among other things, it gives “tips” to boys on how to perform oral sex on other males, masturbate other males, and how to “safely” have someone urinate on you for sexual pleasure. It also included a directory of bars in Boston where young men meet for anonymous sex. Domestic violence •Given the extreme dysfunctional nature of homosexual relationships, the Massachusetts Legislature has felt the need to spend more money every year to deal with skyrocketing homosexual domestic violence. This year $350,000 was budgeted, up $100,000 from last year. Business •All insurance in Massachusetts must now recognize same-sex “married” couples in their coverage. This includes auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance, etc. •Businesses must recognize same-sex “married” couples in all their benefits, activities, etc., regarding both employees and customers. •The wedding industry is required serve the homosexual community if requested. Wedding photographers, halls, caterers, etc., must do same-sex marriages or be arrested for discrimination. •Businesses are often “tested” for tolerance by homosexual activists. Groups of homosexual activists often go into restaurants or bars and publicly kiss and fondle each other to test whether the establishment demonstrates sufficient “equality” — now that homosexual marriage is “legal”. In fact, more and more overt displays of homosexual affection are seen in public places across the state to reinforce "marriage equality". Legal profession •The Massachusetts Bar Exam now tests lawyers on their knowledge of same-sex "marriage" issues. In 2007, a Boston man, Stephen Dunne, failed the Massachusetts bar exam because he refused to answer the questions in it about homosexual marriage. •Issues regarding homosexual “families” are now firmly entrenched in the Massachusetts legal system. In many firms, lawyers in Massachusetts practicing family law must now attend seminars on homosexual "marriage". There are also now several homosexual judges overseeing the Massachusetts family courts. Adoption of children to homosexual “married” couples •Homosexual “married” couples can now demand to be able to adopt children the same as normal couples. Catholic Charities decided to abandon handling adoptions rather submit to regulations requiring them to allow homosexuals to adopt the children in their care. •In 2006 the Massachusetts Department of Social Services (DSS) honored two men “married” to each other as their “Parents of the Year”. The men already adopted a baby through DSS (against the wishes of the baby’s birth parents). According to news reports, the day after that adoption was final DSS approached the men about adopting a second child. Homosexuals now appear to be put in line for adopting children ahead of heterosexual parents by state agencies in Massachusetts. Government mandates •In 2004, Governor Mitt Romney ordered Justices of the Peace to perform homosexual marriages when requested or be fired. At least one Justice of the Peace decided to resign. •Also thanks to Gov. Romney, marriage licenses in Massachusetts now have “Party A and Party B” instead of “husband and wife.” Romney did not have a legal requirement to do this; he did it on his own. (See more on this below.) •Since homosexual relationships are now officially “normal”, the Legislature now gives enormous tax money to homosexual activist groups. In particular, the Massachusetts Commission on Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth is made up of the most radical and militant homosexual groups which target children in the schools. This year they are getting $700,000 of taxpayer money to go into the public schools. •In 2008 Massachusetts changed the state Medicare laws to include homosexual “married” couples in the coverage. The public square •Since gay “marriage”, annual gay pride parades have become more prominent. There are more politicians and corporations participating, and even police organizations take part. And the envelope gets pushed further and further. There is now a profane “Dyke March” through downtown Boston, and recently a “transgender” parade in Northampton that included bare-chested women who have had their breasts surgically removed so they could “become” men. Governor Patrick even marched with his “out lesbian” 17-year old daughter in the 2008 Boston Pride event, right behind a “leather” group brandishing a black & blue flag, whips and chains! The media •Boston media, particularly the Boston Globe newspaper, regularly does feature stories and news stories portraying homosexual “married” couples where regular married couples would normally be used. It’s “equal”, they insist, so there must be no difference in the coverage. Also, the newspaper advice columns now deal with homosexual "marriage" issues, and how to properly accept it. •A growing number of news reporters and TV anchors are openly “married” homosexuals who march in the “gay pride” parades. Is gay marriage actually legal in Massachusetts? Like everywhere else in America, the imposition of same-sex marriage on the people of Massachusetts was a combination of radical, arrogant judges and pitifully cowardly politicians. The Goodridge ruling resulted in a complete cave-in by politicians of both parties on this issue. Same-sex “marriage” is still illegal in Massachusetts. On November 18, 2003 the court merely ruled that it was unconstitutional not to allow it, and gave the Legislature six months to “take such action as it may deem appropriate.” Note that the Massachusetts Constitution strongly denies courts the power to make or change laws, or from ordering the other branches to take any action. The constitution effectively bans “judicial review” – a court changing or nullifying a law. Thus, the court did not order anything to happen; it simply rendered an opinion on that specific case. And the Legislature did nothing. The marriage statutes were never changed. However, against the advice of many, Gov. Romney took it upon himself to alter the state's marriage licenses to say "Party A and Party B" and order officials to perform same-sex "weddings" if asked, though he had no legal obligation to do so. Technically, same-sex marriages are still illegal in Massachusetts. Nevertheless, we are having to live with it. And furthermore, this abdication of their proper constitutional roles by the Legislature and Governor has caused a domino effect as "copycat" rulings have been issued in California and Connecticut, with other states fearful it will happen there. In conclusion Homosexual “marriage” hangs over society like a hammer with the force of law. And it’s only just begun. It’s pretty clear that the homosexual movement’s obsession with marriage is not because large numbers of them actually want to marry each other. Research shows that homosexual relationships are fundamentally dysfunctional on many levels, and “marriage” as we know it isn’t something they can achieve, or even desire. (In fact, over the last three months, the Sunday Boston Globe’s marriage section hasn’t had any photos of homosexual marriages. In the beginning it was full of them.) This is about putting the legal stamp of approval on homosexuality and imposing it with force throughout the various social and political institutions of a society that would never accept it otherwise. To the rest of America: You've been forewarned.

People need to research what

People need to research what has happened in Massachussets and how the government has now created curriculums in the schools for 6 year olds to force them not to be homophobes. The problem is not even whether or not the vote would have passed, the problem is that is won't STOP there. There is a "Gay agenda", to force you to accept them. Now there are gay days in the schooling system, where teachers get up with their partners and talk about their personal relationship to children. What is worse is that the parents in that state have lost a say. One parent got arrested because he did not want his son learning about anything sexual at age 6. I don't want my 10 year old learning about heterosexual sex. Why would I want my 6 year old to read books on it and see pictures of two men or two women making out. It is an extreme acceptance, they can't just be happy that they are allowed to be married, they go overboard. If you don't believe me, check it out yourself....http://www.massresistance.org/docs/marriage/effects_of_ssm.html

The human race can be so

The human race can be so disgusting. Homosexuality is evidence of that. And what's crazy is that a HOMO will argue somebody down trying to prove that they are a "race" of people who were "born that way". You believe that lie if you want to, but I don't buy it. You chose to be gagay, so you choose to suffer the consequences of that lifestyle.

I do not believe In Gay

I do not believe In Gay marriage. I do not believe in that lifestyle. You can call it 2000 years old book all day long. God has not changed his mind about it and neither should Christians. I do however, believe that you should allow people to make a choice about how they live because this is what God does. He does not force us to live by his word. And so if a person wants to live that way that's between them and God. I will say this, those who support gays and some who are gay are hypocrites! You say a person has a right to believe and live how they choose. You believe a person has a right to their point of view? Then why is it you all bully a person who does not have the same values that you do? Why is it you ask people to accept your beliefs but you don't accept the beliefs of a person who does not agree with gay marriage. If a person does not agree with gay marriage lifestyle they automatically are attacked verbally and assumed that they condone violence against a person who is gay. Its a lie!!! You can't have it both ways. The same way you want to have the right to support gay marriage, Christians have a right to support their religion without being bullied. So who is the real bully here? Just because I don't believe in that lifestyle does not mean I wish ANY harm on anyone gay or not. I do not support discrimination against gay people or hatred in any form. But Christians are attacked for their beliefs. I hate that a lot of Christians are bowing down to the " world's way " of thinking. The word says we would be hated for Christ's sake. and now that we are to take a stand we are retreating into silence and not taking a stand for our religion. Plus our religion is not the only religion that disputes the gay lifestyle but for some reason the world automatically attacks Christians. To attack christians is to attack Christ. I won't get into if being gay is right or wrong. My comment isn't about that. My comment is this, do we as christians or people who don't believe in that lifestyle not have the same rights to our beliefs as those who do believe in the gay lifestyle? Does not the ability to believe in what you want without being bullied or attacked go both ways? Why is it an automatic outcry of hatred from the gay community if someone does not agree with you? If that person not agreeing with you does not promote violence or hatred, then why do you attack them with meanness and hatred? Isn't that being hypocritical?

You are so right! No person

You are so right! No person should feel ashamed if they differ in opinion, and for that I will stand for your right. The only thing I would like to let all know is none of us have a right to ACT on any type of intimidation against others for their belief, just as we have no right to tell others what to do! If God spoke to you about something that is a violation to what he wants, then you do as the master tell you, but to all, please allow God to deal with us and not you!

I totally agree with you as

I totally agree with you as well and thank you. that's all Im asking is that if we allow someone to vote "FOR" gay marriage, give me the same respect to vote (in peace) against it. Because at the end of the day you have to give respect to get it. You can ask for it and not give it just because you don't understand it. I don't understand it and even when People try to attack my faith or beliefs I never attack them back. I try to educate and enlighten and simply ask them, " do I not have the same rights to believe and stand by my beliefs without being verbally attacked and bullied as you do"? If not, then they are being a hypocrit. So thank you again!

Love how fools like you say

Love how fools like you say ignorant stuff under anonymous names. Show your face and tell your name . If you call yourself a real man or woman then if you truly believed what you say then show your face and tell your name, otherwise shut up with that crap. This isn't about race you idiot. this is about the right to believe or not believe in gay rights. But as always you can be talking about the planet and some fool like you will make it about racism. Gotta love america though because cowards are always the first one to speak but also the first ones to hide because they are scared to let ppl know who they really are. You can't be more human than me. To quote Dr Maya Angelou. YOu are human so am I. You bleed red blood just like I do. YOu spend green dollars just like me. You pay taxes so do I. You sit on the toilet and wipe your behind after you crap just like I do so stop acting like you are super human and have some special power that blacks don't have. But if you gonna say some dumb mess like that, at least be bold enough to back it up by exposing yourself. but you won't. You will come back with some dumb retort all while trying to change the subject and divert attention from the fact that you still haven't told us who is behind that racist comment. But we won't fall for it. so the laugh is on you. you idiot!!!!!

Majority of black people are

Majority of black people are prejudice on this issue and don't even know it. The Bible is for the closed minded none thinker...If you allow a 2 thousand year old book to dictate morals , then you are truly lost.
