Obama 'In Bed' with Homosexuals for 2012

Eyeing low public approval ratings, the Obama campaign has opted to discard the presidential oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution" with regard to the Defense of Marriage Act, in favor of cash from the homosexualists.

UPDATE 3/14/11: Homosexualists press Obama for more

-- From "DOMA move helps President Obama with gays" by Josh Gerstein, Politico 3/1/11

President Barack Obama’s decision to stop fighting lawsuits challenging the Defense of Marriage Act [DOMA] has dramatically warmed his relationship with gay and lesbian activists — clearing the way for the president and Democrats to fundraise aggressively in the gay community in the crucial lead-up to his 2012 reelection bid.

“The mood has gotten a lot better,” said DNC Treasurer Andrew Tobias, who is gay and has long been a key leader for the party in the LGBT community. “More and more, people are recognizing that we’ve made some very real gains and have a president and a party eager to make some more very real gains.”

The praise is a sharp contrast from the complaints and protests from the gay community that marked much of Obama’s first two years in office. Frustrated activists grew restless over snail’s-pace progress on agenda items like the repeal of the military’s ban on gays in uniform, and they watched with alarm as the Justice Department tried to justify keeping benefits from same-sex couples — a key effect of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Some gay Democratic donors organized boycotts. Others picketed fundraisers Obama headlined, and even heckled him at public events.

From "In Defense of the Defense of Marriage Act" by David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey, Wall Street Journal 3/2/11

Marriage is unlike any other governmental benefit. License to marry carries with it far more than mere permission, as in obtaining a license to drive or practice a profession. The reason that gay-rights supporters are so determined to achieve equal status for same-sex unions, and the reason that so many others vigorously oppose that recognition, is that marriage is an affirmative statement of societal approval.

DOMA recognizes and protects the unique constitutional role of the states in deciding these issues. It is through the democratic process within the states that a genuine and lasting resolution to the question of same-sex marriage can and should be found.

Inviting a comprehensive judicial resolution of the issues surrounding same-sex marriage, which is what the administration has done by announcing that it will no longer defend the law, is the worst of all possible solutions. There is a political process taking place that has secured, and doubtless will continue to secure, the ability of same-sex couples to marry in many states. Shutting down that process through a judicial ruling will end all possibility of compromise. And like Roe v. Wade's effort to finally "solve" the abortion debate, it will divide our society on this issue for decades to come.

President Obama took an oath to uphold the Constitution, and one aspect of that responsibility is to defend the laws Congress enacts against constitutional attack if there is any reasonable defense to be made. There is such a defense to be made for DOMA.

From "Newt Gingrich: Obama Could Be Impeached Over Gay Marriage Reversal" by Paul Bedard, U.S.News & World Report 2/25/11

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich [said] . . . that if President Obama doesn't change his mind and order his Justice Department to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, Republicans in Congress should strike back and even consider impeachment proceedings.

"I believe the House Republicans next week should pass a resolution instructing the president to enforce the law and to obey his own constitutional oath, and they should say if he fails to do so that they will zero out [defund] the office of attorney general and take other steps as necessary until the president agrees to do his job," said Gingrich. "His job is to enforce the rule of law and for us to start replacing the rule of law with the rule of Obama is a very dangerous precedent."

The president's decision not to enforce the law that protects traditional marriage was a major policy switch and was seen as a bow to the gay community that has pushed hard to win the right to marriage in many states. Gays have been politically active for Obama, though some have been critical of his defense of traditional marriage.

. . . the president also gave another olive branch to the community, naming [Jeremy Bernard as] the first gay social secretary for the White House.

From "Conservative Group: Did Obama Justice Dept. Collaborate With Those Trying to Overturn California’s Same-Sex Marriage Ban?" by Susan Jones, 3/2/11

A conservative advocacy group wants to know if the U.S. Justice Department had any behind-the-scenes correspondence or communication with various law firms and/or groups that are suing California over its voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage.

The Family Research Council has filed a freedom of information act (FOIA) request with the Justice Department, seeking any and all communications between Justice Department officials and various law firms or liberal advocacy groups that oppose, or are involved in the legal fight against either California’s Proposition 8 or the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

The FRC noted in its FOIA request that Attorney General Eric Holder – on Feb. 23 – held a news conference and then sent a letter to Congress announcing that the Obama administration would no longer defend the federal definition of marriage found in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Less than three hours after Holder’s announcement, litigants seeking to strike down California’s definition of traditional marriage filed a “motion to vacate stay” in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. That motion cited and/or quoted from Holder’s letter twice -- on pages 7 and 10.

From "Obama’s homosexual America" by Jeffrey T. Kuhner, The Washington Times 2/24/11

Although he claims still to be “grappling” with the issue of same-sex marriage, the president is a radical social liberal. He supports “strong” civil unions for homosexuals. He claims that restrictions on homosexuals getting married are “discriminatory” and “homophobic.” He endorses abortion on demand - including the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. He defends embryonic stem-cell research. He has nothing but kind things to say about euthanasia. In short, he champions the culture of death.

Mr. Obama’s stated goal is to transform America. The most destructive aspect is this revolution against traditional morality. He is trying to make homosexuality a permanent, legitimate feature of American life. . . . By abandoning DOMA, Mr. Obama is paving the way for the final assault on the last bastion of conservatism - the family.

[President Obama's] attack on DOMA is not only for political purposes. It is also ideological.

From its inception, the modern left has sought to destroy the traditional family. Marriage has been the bedrock institution of the Christian West; smash it, and the entire civilizational edifice comes crashing down.

The homosexual lifestyle signifies the triumph of neo-pagan Epicureanism.
