Well, this should test the patriotism of the 81% that voted for the Tennessee Marriage Protection Amendment to our state constitution. If there really is an Islamic threat within our country, or if we truly are “bringing democracy” to their countries we invade and occupy, I don’t find it very wise to openly promote the United States of Sodomy. It’s certainly not the way to win friends and influence Muslims…..or the 81%. But, many will likely go to the polls in retribution to Obama to vote for the man that started it all in the United States as governor of Massachusetts.
Be careful, because you might find yourself in strange company. If Obama is “the first pro-gay-marriage president” then Romney will surely be the second. My question is, will he issue a presidential executive order for Tennessee (and all those other states) to recognize-sodomite-marriage-or-else, the same way he did to the justices of the peace in Massachusetts? What should I believe more, what he actually DID as a Republican governor in Massachusetts or what he SAYS today? What was it Jesus said again? Oh yeah….ye shall know them by their fruits words they use to get elected (RSV – Revised Santorum Version). Note that there are really two issues there: one is the pro-sodomy stance and the other is the willingness to abuse and/or usurp executive power circumventing the people, the legislative and judicial branches of government. He will do it again. There will be great pressure to do so. Additionally, you will find he will not make much effort to reverse the illegal or unconstitutional executive orders of Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc. Sure, there will be one or two in the beginning, like Obama’s move to return us to funding the murder of unborn children in other countries right after he took office, but then it will be back to more TSA hands on your genitalia, drones, VIPR search and seizure checkpoints, indefinite detentions in Cuba, invading Syria and Iran (indirectly waging war with Russia, undeclared of course), a.k.a business as usual.
If you think you are still voting for the lesser of two evils, just how much evil are you willing to vote for?
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
