I Did, I Do, But I Don't

Which is it with Obama? He supposedly holds to marriage as between one man and one woman. But, how can you hold to that position, and then hold to the position that same-sex marriages are okay?

Equality is a moral imperative

He also said he thought it should be the right of the states to decide if they thought same-sex marriage was okay. Now he is saying that California should uphold the same-sex marriage act they just banned and then the courts reinstated. Can you say flip-flop?

Barack Obama and Gay Marriage/ Civil Unions:

Although Barack Obama has said that he supports civil unions, he is against gay marriage. In an interview with the Chicago Daily Tribune, Obama said, "I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman."

Barack Obama did vote against a Federal Marriage Amendment and opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996.

He said he would support civil unions between gay and lesbian couples, as well as letting individual states determine if marriage between gay and lesbian couples should be legalized.

"Giving them a set of basic rights would allow them to experience their relationship and live their lives in a way that doesn't cause discrimination," Obama said. "I think it is the right balance to strike in this society."

Either he thinks marriage is between a man and a woman or he doesn’t.

The other Obama
Barack had a more bohemian attitude toward romance. “We would have this running debate throughout our relationship about whether marriage was necessary,” Obama told me. “It was sort of a bone of contention, because I was, like, ‘Look, buddy, I’m not one of these who’ll just hang out forever.’ You know, that’s just not who I am. He was, like”—she broke into a wishy-washy voice—“ ‘Marriage, it doesn’t mean anything, it’s really how you feel.’

Hi Barbara, Thanks for your kind comments, I know you are a prayer warrior so I will copy and paste what I wrote to my blogging friends in a E-mail.

Hi, We just got back from Dr.Gialde's office. On Friday Nancy had been complaining for a couple of days about her left side hurting all the time.

The last time this happened in 2003 it turned out being her spleen and the blood platelets deal. So I called Dr.Gialde's office and he said to give her the Tylenol #3 every four hours for pain and if it still hurt call them on Monday or Tuesday.
So this morning it was still hurting, Kelly took us to his office and they did ex-rays and blood work. The ex-rays showed that she had a little pneumonia. They gave her samples of an anti- biotic and the office called her lung specialist and we have an appointment with him at 4:00 tomorrow afternoon.
Please pray for her and Thanks you!!! Love and Hugs, Carolyn (Grams)

Here is my E- mail address This is only if you want to write me with yours I understand if you wouldn't want too!!
I just thought I could keep you updated on everything with Nancy! and you can pray!! Love and hugs Grams

I believe he is trying very hard to get the evangelical votes, although they should know better than to vote for him. That's why the changes and also the funding for faith-based programs.

I agree with Cathy. I think he is trying hard after the evangelical vote and is scrambling around about it. I've been a little surprised that he's coming on so strong about being a Christian. There may be other reasons too which I wonder about. This is such a sad election for me, but I haven't given up on our country. No as long as I can pray.
