It worked! I dissed Obama on gay marriage — and he relented!
Just yesterday, I posted THIS.
And today, President Obama said THIS.
What power I have!
My favorite wingnut reaction to the news is this headline at the inimitable Gateway Pundit: “Obama Continues Attacks On Christian Church – Throws His Support Behind Gay Marriage.”
Such stupidity begs the question: What “Christian Church” are the geniuses at Gateway Pundit talking about? There are many different Christian denominations, and they are not all opposed to gay marriage. The largest Christian denomination, the Roman Catholic Church, is officially opposed to gay marriage, but most American Catholics are not.
There was a time in this country when many so-called Christian churches were opposed to race-mixing. What would Gateway Pundit have said of a president who took issue with such bigotry. I shudder to think of it.
UPDATE: Not to be outdone by the loonies at Gateway Pundit, the Fox News Web site is out with this headline: “Obama Flip Flops, Declares War On Marriage.”
Wow! It’s a good thing I’m divorced. I don’t want to get caught up in any war.
UPDATE II: Fox News anchor Shep Smith SAYS Republicans are on the “wrong side of history” with respect to gay marriage.
Of course, that will only prompt the knuckle-draggers to surmise that Smith is gay himself and demand that he be fired.
