Even though the endless list of President Obama’s failed policies have taken hold of the country, the ‘Hope’ and ‘Forward’ mantras from the 2008 election have surely resonated with many uninformed Americans.
In some ways, Obama is a huge success. He’s the first black man in the White House, he pushed through government controlled healthcare, and now, because of public opinion and liberal bullying, gay marriage is the law of the land. Of course, none of these rulings have helped our nation, but that’s not the point.
The point of an Obama presidency was to fundamentally change America, and he has done so resoundingly. Hopefully, not permanently.
In just over six years, Obama has managed to convince a large portion of the nation that socialism and sin are better for the nation than morals and values.
Who would’ve ever thought though, that an American president would tell his constituents that it’s time to move past deeply held religious beliefs in order to appease one of the smallest sects in the country?
Well, Obama is doing just that.
From Daily Caller:
“I know that Americans of goodwill continue to hold a wide range of views on this issue,” he said in a speech following the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling to Constitutionally recognize same-sex marriage. He initially espoused respect for those who disagree with the ruling.
“Opposition in some cases has been based on sincere and deeply held beliefs,” he said. “All of us who welcome today’s news should be mindful of that fact. Recognize different viewpoints. Revere our deep commitment to religious freedom.”
“But today should also give us hope that on the many issues with which we grapple often painfully real change is possible,” he continued, abruptly switching gears, clearly implying that those who disagree must come around to the more righteous, more American, and more equal view of marriage.
“Shifts in hearts and minds is possible,” he said. “And those who have come so far on their journey to equality have a responsibility to reach back and help others join them. Because for all our differences, we are one people — stronger together than we could ever be alone.”
“That’s always been our story. We are big and vast, and diverse. A nation of people with different backgrounds and beliefs, with different experiences and stories, but bound by our shared ideal that no matter who you are, or what you look like, how you started off, or how and who you love — America’s a place where you can write your own destiny.”
The man has no principles, and has never been bashful when it comes to shaming conservative American values.
Wait a second. I though this guy was a Christian.
