Perhaps same sex marriage will not be forced on us as soon as I thought. North Carolina is the 31st state to reject same sex marriage in the voting booth. Unfortunately here in Iowa we did not get to vote. Judges made a law out of whole cloth.
Well we did get to vote 3 of the Supreme Court justices out of office.
The next state to vote on a marriage amendment is Minnesota. But Minneapolis is known in these parts as San Francisco Mid West, so it would not be a surprise if voters reject the marriage amendment.
Anyway, even if all 50 states voted against same sex marriage I doubt if the gay activists will give up.
The tyrants—including the democratic leadership–will keep pushing until same sex marriages are accepted.
Don’t think so? Well President Obama finally came clean in an interview with ABC: (H/T Thomas Peters)
“President Obama today announced that he now supports same-sex marriage, reversing his longstanding opposition amid growing pressure from the Democratic base and even his own vice president.
In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, the president described his thought process as an “evolution” that led him to this decision, based on conversations with his staff members, openly gay and lesbian service members, and his wife and daughters.
“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told Roberts in an interview to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday.”
Somehow I don’t think that it is a coincidence that this announcement comes on the heels of the North Carolina vote.
While the president claims that it is just his personal opinion, I do not buy it for a second. It is, like the HHS contraception mandate, a declaration of war.
This president and his radical leftist cohorts think that they know better than us ordinary folks. I really do think that if Obama is reelected we will lose many of the freedoms that we take for granted especially religious freedom. We must submit to our betters dontcha know.
The case for voting for the not Obama candidate grows every day.
I am praying that Minnesotans go to the polls and vote in favor of the Marriage Amendment on the ballot this fall. In Minnesota, if you leave the amendment unmarked, it is the same as a “no” vote, so I hope that all check the “yes” box.
I have dedicated considerable space in my blog, Catholic Faith and Reflections, (http://bob.yerhot.org) in recent months trying to educate everyone on the importance of this issue for my state and indeed for the nation. All the bishops of Minnesota and many leaders of other faiths are working diligently to inform the faithful of the necessity of supporting marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

I am praying for resounding yes vote.
