Obama The Stonewaller

Letter to the Editor.

We were informed some time ago that President Obama, or should I say "Stonewall" Obama, said in 1996 that: "I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages." But, during his 2004 U.S. Senate bid, he cited his Christian faiths as grounds for his belief that marriage is between a man and a woman!?" Apparently, he had no Christian faith in 1996! The Bible and Jesus say many things important about family and love, but neither explicitly defines marriage as between one man and one woman!
And then, incomprehensibly, Obama states: "Religion should not dictate a state's approach to gay rights!" It's time for your reality check Obama, you can't have it both ways. Stick with your 1996 statement. That felt like it was from your unpoliticized heart. (If you're unfamiliar with "Stonewall," it's the name given to the beginning of the gay equality movement that began in 1969, following a raid on a gay bar, Stonewall Inn, in Greenwich Village.)
