Yesterday, a Democratic President of the United States of America, in the year 2009, and an African-American child of inter-racial parents no less, gave his lawyers the go ahead to compare our marriages to incest on the same day that 42 years ago the Supreme Court ruled in his parents’ favor in Loving v. Virginia.
A great nation deserves the truth: A word about Barack Obama and the lawyers in our midst
Yes, the President of the United States of America, a man I voted for, compared same sex marriage to incest and pederasty. This kind of bigoted attitude is what I expect from people seeped in religion and the hatred that religion fosters. It is not the attitude and rhetoric that I will tolerate from someone I helped vote into office. In the next election there is an excellent chance that my vote will be cast elsewhere. I do not expect to have to endure such a high level of bigotry, hatred and ignorance from a politician I supported.
I am not alone in my reaction to President Obama’s bigotry. A Coalition of LGBT groups and ACLU issued a statement condemning the Obama administration for their defense of DOMA. http://www.aclu.org/lgbt/relationships/39848prs20090612.html
