As Obama 'Bipartisanship' Ends, Marriage Next on Chopping Block?

"We won!" The President refrains. "Voters decided that in November." Yes, the Democrat platform clearly states support of the Gay Agenda (including repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act). As the courts continue the dismantling of the family (most recently ruling the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional), Americans should study the explicit plans of the majority party.

From the official Obama White House website:

Oppose a Constitutional Ban on Same-Sex Marriage: President Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2006 which would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and prevented judicial extension of marriage-like rights to same-sex or other unmarried couples.

Support Full Civil Unions and Federal Rights for LGBT Couples: President Obama supports full civil unions that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples. Obama also believes we need to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and enact legislation that would ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex couples in civil unions and other legally-recognized unions. These rights and benefits include the right to assist a loved one in times of emergency, the right to equal health insurance and other employment benefits, and property rights.

New Marriage Amendment legislation was introduced last summer, yet not even a majority of Republicans have shown support.
