|Political Ploy? Doesn't make sense!|
President Obama has become the first president in history to support same-sex marriage.
Many are saying that supporting gay marriage is nothing more than a political ploy, but if that were the case, it is certainly one with a huge risk.
While it's true that the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage, that majority may not play out across all states, and the state victories are the ones that elect the president.
Therefore, this logic simply does not float.
President Obama always supported civil unions with rights for gay partners, and I think this is just his way of taking a stand. This stand is doubly important in light of the vote in North Carolina which just banned gay marriage.
- When will Christians learn that they do NOT have the right to force their beliefs on all Americans?
- When will Christians learn that they do NOT have the right to punish those who go against their beliefs?
I'm very proud to be an American today, and I'm very proud of President Obama for defending basic human rights of all Americans.
