Barack Obama’s “New” Announcement on “Gay Marriage”

Posted on May 16, 2012 by

Let’s cut to the chase will we. Many astute individuals never believed that Barack Obama had this “evolving opinion” on “gay marriage”. Most people who weren’t taken with your “moderate” stance already knew that you supported this absurdity.

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…

The personal is the political. Touche. Except there’s one problem: contradiction, hypocrisy and inconsistency. Why?

  • Liberals are notorious for not supporting the military – except when it comes to the gays. All of the sudden liberals become exceedingly patriotic.
  • The default liberal view of marriage is the feminist one (and this can be supported by falling marriage rates among the general population). Liberals believe that marriage is outdated, regressive, oppressive and conformist – except when it comes to the gays. All of the sudden it comes a human rights issue and about equality.
  • Liberals don’t believe in monogamy nor in commitment. They believe that pre-marital sex is good, that no-fault divorce is good, that all one needs is “love” and if this “love” goes than better to dissolve the marriage, that co-habitation is good, that a lack of chastity is good, that illegitimacy is good, that single motherhood is good and that whatever passes their fancy is good. They are open-minded after all and are pretty supportive of open-relationships, hooking-up, short-term relationships, serial monogamy, adultery and other things. There’s nothing special about two people, much less about them being together until death do they part.
  • Liberals hate or dislike (depending on your point of view) children and don’t procreate (using contraception or abortion), preferring a single autonomous lifestyle (aka child-free) – except when it comes to the gays. All of the sudden children are good and not little parasites. We should all love families and support them.
  • And so much more.

“Gay marriage” is being marketed on how it will benefit us all and bring marriage back from brink. Except it won’t. Heterosexual and homosexual relationships are different (ohhhh the discrimination) because men and women are different (how sexist, misogynist and chauvinistic). Homosexuals are about 2-3% of the population (not 10% and certainly not 30%). The only thing that “gay marriage” will create is less emphasis on the life-bonding, God-affirming, complementary and reproductive aspect of marriage and more on the recreative, individualistic and humanist aspect as feminism has done (“It will make us happy and we are living in such loveable homes”). Marriage will become even more something of a preference at whim (see the example of the Netherlands) and the words husband/wife as well as father/mother will lose their essential meaning ever further and be replaced by Parent A and Parent B (see the example of Spain).

It’s a perfect illustration of the double-think inherent in liberalism (courtesy of 1984 by George Orwell). Liberals destroyed marriage through feminism and laugh when conservatives try to fix it, citing the erroneous damage caused by feminism as a reason why gays should be allowed to be married. Sorry folks but just because the house is burning down doesn’t mean that we should add more fuel to the fire. I find this talk of “gay marriage” exhausting and pathetic (not to mention paradoxical). Perhaps the reason why a failed commander-in-Chief like Barack Obama supports “gay marriage” is this: it’s Obama’s way of distracting the populace. And by golly I am sick of this charade.
