The Truth Comes Out--Obama Backed Homosexual Marriage

The Truth Comes Out--Obama Backed Homosexual Marriage

When Barack Obama was running for president, he said he opposed same-sex "marriage," favoring civil unions instead. But in 1996, when he first ran for the Illinois state senate, a Chicago "gay" newspaper reported that Obama supported same-sex "marriage." This week a successor paper, the Windy City Times, published specific documentation regarding Obama's earlier stance.

A candidate questionnaire by IMPACT, a homosexual political action group, proposed a resolution that "the state should not interfere with same-gender couples who choose to marry and share fully and equally in the rights responsibilities and commitment of civil marriage." Obama wrote, apparently in his own hand, "I would support such a resolution." A month later, Obama sent to Outlines a typed letter, over his own signature, stating, "I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages." Obama's professed opposition to redefining marriage was never very credible, given his much stronger opposition to every effort to defend marriage.

If American voters had understood Obama's real views, his candidacy for president might have gone the way of other open supporters of same-sex "marriage"--like Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich. Does concealing one's real beliefs to gain political advantage represent "change we can believe in?"
