Obama’s gay marriage comment

"It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."

Plenty of people are applauding President Obama for finally giving a half-assed statement that he kinda supports same-sex marriage if states want to give it a go.  Wow.  That’s one hell of an endorsement.  It’s the kind of endorsement that the CEO of Chevron gives about the helping the environment, or that Michelle Bachmann gives to the National Organization for Women.  How nice that the President had the testicles to finally reinforce the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.  Ok, maybe just one testicle because he sure as hell didn’t throw his full support around something after reminding Robin Roberts that states should make the decision.  Jesus.  What a worm. FYI, this is the same guy that said he was against gay marriage during the 2008 election to save his electoral ass, even through it would have taken pictures of himself and Hillary in bed together to prevent the victory from happening anyway.

Nice to also see that the Republican Party doesn’t exist any more and all we have left are the Conservative Party; filled to the brim with the cast from Pleasantville, born-again members of the former Moral Majority, and the kind of people that didn’t have a problem blacks and whites sitting in different parts of the bus.  I’m still waiting for a real Republican to stand up and say “Why do I really need to give a shit what two members of the same sex do in their own house?  I support the Constitution, fiscal responsibility, and getting rid of the Designated Hitter.”  But it looks like social conservatism might be here in the U.S. for awhile because televangelism still exists on the Internet, and South Africa no longer supports apartheid.

I’m made my issues with gay marriage known years ago.  I’m not interested in segregating parts of society, especially due to religious reasons, so I have not problem with gays getting married.  And we have much bigger issues in society than caring about gays getting married.  Get over it.
