Obama vs Prop 8

And when asked by MTV what he thought (about California’s Proposition 8), almost-president Obama said:

I think it’s unnecessary,” Obama told Sway, in response to a question sent in by Gangstagigz from San Leandro, California. “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.

Now I don’t agree with his hedged position any more than I agreed with Joe Biden’s when he was asked in his VP debate with Palin what he thought of same-sex marriage. But this is where the crucial distinction comes in between Obama and the ‘you’re either with us or against us’ brand of conservatism which Bush, Cheney and now McCain represent – Obama doesn’t believe in banning what he doesn’t agree with. And that’s what everyone has to remember about the upcoming Obamamerica – red/blue absolute positions are no longer necessary. Barack Obama may not support same-sex marriage, but he doesn’t have to to oppose Proposition 8. Nor do you.

Vote NO on Proposition 8, California! It’s the only moral choice!

  1. Some people may be against Gay marriage, but also against Proposition 8 because it writes this in our constitution. One of those people (although he can’t vote) is Senator Obama. So, what I say to him, I say to all those like him.

    Senator, if you oppose gay marriage and Proposition 8, what mechanism do you suggest to make your opposition a reality? The courts won’t support any legislation to make it illegal. By opposing the bill, you will make gay marriage legal in the state.

  2. Christians! Don’t be fooled by a Mormon LDS trick! Save Christianity and vote NO on proposition 8! See http://Batyzim.com/ for the real, Christian, story.

    BTW: The Mormons have been instructed by their leaders to deface and vandalize their own signs to make themselves look like victims. It’s an old trick, and a shame the Media fell for it.
