OBAMA & SAME SEX "MARRIAGE".
COULDN'T HE ENDURE THE PRESSURE?
Obama backing homosexual marriage has not only taken the wind out of many sails; the enthusiasm to support him by a whole lot of people has vanished into thin air, as far as taking him to be a really serious person was concerned.
His campaign has been criticising his probable Republican Party candidate, Mitt Romney, in the 2012 presidential election, as a flip flop on many issues; but his own decision to accept that kind of arrangement made him into a complete weathervane.
He would go wherever the wind blew, as he has not shown that he could withstand pressure from a special interest group, especially if the price was right. There were political contributions to be made, and they have mainly come from these special interest groups; and no one could ignore them.
From the very start of his administration, many of these special interest groups have forced themselves to be part of his ensemble; and they had professionals that would work for him both in the White House and on the outside.
They worked for him, but at the same time they worked with him to farther their causes at the highest level. It was like being trapped, as he was very much aware of what was transpiring around him, but there happened to no way to control all the numerous circumstances that they surrounded him with.
He had advisers for all kinds of things, apart from his official cabinet and even what was known as "the kitchen cabinet"; however, some of them (advisers) were like lobbyists, whose real occupation was to get him to focus on their specific interests.
He had mentioned in his ABC interview, of how he felt about "some of my own staff members", who were committed to each other as homosexual couples. Practically, he was a captive audience for them, and they would take advantage of the situation. So, if they were that close to him, they were gradually promoting their life style as being "normal"; and as any human being would do, he would have sympathy for their nature, whether it was depraved or not.
They were building him up to accept them for who they were; and with that having gone on for so long, he had to emotionally give in to their request of a "man marrying another man" portrayal; a spectacle that he knew to be a taboo.
Hence his shocking admittance that homosexuals "can get married", and thus making homosexuality a political issue by moving it from the cultural realm and into the open.
By the way, no culture in whole world has ever accepted it, and although its been around for centuries, even before Christ Jesus, they (cultures) would never allow two men to "marry".
Even in this era, when the subject has become a "hot potato" as a score of politicians and judicial judges, with some being homosexuals themselves, were advocating for its recognition in society, same-sex couples were denied acceptance in so many circles, and they were marginalized by many organizations.
It was not that anybody hated them, as they could do whatever they wanted behind the walls of their homes, as personal privacy was regarded in the United States Constitution; but the idea of men coupling with men and women cohabiting with other women tend to disrespect nature itself. That was what many people disagreed with.
Put two male dogs or two female cats in the same pen and they would never have sex; yet, on the other hand, a male dog and a female dog would produce a litter of puppies; and the same would apply for two cats of the opposite gender, with kittens being produced.
Demonstrating that the act of having a sexual relationship in the natural realm had a purpose; and as in humans, it was for pro-creation.
Obama knew that he was taking an enormous political risk to come out and announce that he was for that kind of marriage, when he knew in his heart that whether it was morally wrong or not, it was not "marriage" in the right sense of the word.
However, he has made his bed, and he must lay in it; but he should remember that his support has waned considerably, especially by those opposed to "men marrying men, and women marrying women" to be comfortable from their perspective. (Thanks to Mr. Joe B.).
Whether he has accepted same sex marriage or not, the feelings of those, who were opposed to it happened to be perpetual.
