President Obama Has “Evolved” to Accept Same-sex “Marriage”

(Harrisburg) — President Obama’s “evolution” seems to be complete when it comes to his endorsement of counterfeit marriage.  The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) notes that this is the first time a sitting President of the United States has ever taken such a drastic step to undermine traditional American families.

“President Obama’s statements do not really come as a surprise.  He has been paving the way to this announcement since last year when he announced his administration would no longer defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act,” commented Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.

The AFA of PA also notes that Obama opposed the North Carolina Marriage Protection Amendment which passed overwhelmingly by a 61% vote yesterday.  This is considered to be a swing state in November.  Other problematic re-election issues are the facts that the majority of African Americans and Latinos support traditional one man one woman marriage.  Will independent voters support a candidate who does not support traditional marriage?  President Obama and the Democrats are accelerating their downward spiral and trying to take the nation with them.

“Recent statements by Vice President Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in support of same-sex so-called marriage forced the President’s hand.  He is dependent upon the homosexual vote and the only way he could guarantee their continued support was to endorse same gender “marriage.”  However in so doing he is alienating many who supported him in 2008,” Gramley further commented.

Obama’s announcement today should also energize the Republican legislators in Harrisburg to stop obstructing our Marriage Protection Amendment — HB 1434 — and do what the majority of Pennsylvanians want and that is to protect natural one-man one-woman marriage.  Today’s announcement shows how great the need is to protect marriages and families.
