Skip to comments.Newsweek finally goes where none have gone before

Are you kidding me? I get that Andrew Sullivan is a man with an agenda and I completely support his right to make his opinions heard. I also understand that Newsweek like any other publication is in business to make a profit and that frequently involves pushing the envelope in terms of catching the publics attention.
But at what point is too much simply too much? When is the shark definitively jumped and the daily bread burned past any reasonable definition of being toast? Ladies and gentlemen, this would be that point.
Let the games begin, Tina Brown said last week after Time Magazine released its controversial breastfeeding cover.
Brown, whose tenure as editor at Newsweek has seen an array of controversial covers, will respond with the above, pegged to Andrew Sullivans piece on Obamas support for same-sex marriage: The First Gay President.
The poster that comes from this is going to sell millions. Take that to the bank.
Im not such a political neophyte as to suggest that this is unique in politics, but the bold faced, brazen machinations and ham handed plotting which have characterized this evolution in the Presidents position on the subject at hand are rather breathtaking. And Im not saying that people dont actually evolve in their positions, beliefs or ideology. I know that my own attitudes and beliefs in my twenties were a far cry in some instances at least from where I stand in my fifties. Very few of us spring out of the halls of high school fully formed with all of the opinions well hold until the grave.

This ridiculous cover is a major gift to Romney.
Larry Sinclair was trying to tell everyone the same damn thing 4 years ago, but nobody wanted to listen.
I wrote a short vanity on the General Chat side of FR saying that the media is setting Obama up for martyrdom for his brave stand on homosexual marriage.
When Obama loses, and he will, it will be said that he sacrificed his presidency for the noble cause of gay marriage.
More and more lib pundits are realizing Obama is a loser. Even AP had a story about what a global disappointment Obama has been. And there is Kleins book about Obama fittingly called, The Amateur.
The media is giving him a halo and a golden parachute for the coming fall from grace.
Martyrdom is coming.
Larry Sinclair Interview:
Is Barack Obama Gay and What Has Media Done to Hide that
Andrew Sullivan wants everyone to tell him that what he does in his bedroom is wonderful and blessed. And if you agree to do so he likes you. If you don’t agree to do so he, and many others who share his, shall we say, feelings, are not going to like you. And their not liking you is going to get really, really nasty.
If you think its a sin to be a nonbeliever in regard to global warming, wait till you see what kind of sin it is going to become to refuse to acknowledge not simply the right of homosexuals to practice their homosexuality openly and co-opt or redefine every bit of the terminology of marriage and family, but the high virtue and beauty of homosexuality.
It’s kind of like the totalitarian dictator thing: Tell the leader you love or he’ll kill you.
The Supreme Court has been ruling that we are not a Christian country any longer. The Bible isn’t the law of the land. The courts have interpreted a penumbra Constitution to reflect this slouch toward Gemorrah. A pagan country can define marriage as it wishes. We are a pagan country now.
Christians should always say Sacramental Marriage to reflect the union of man and woman as God intended.
And saying that will eventually constitute illegal discrimination against yet another federally protected identity group.
Will never see the light of day.
Paging all those images of 0bama standing a little too close to men and looking as though he was going to kiss them.
Sinclair should be on the map once again.... Cant they at least question the truth of his story?
What if the commies are setting him for ACTUAL martyrdom?
Their only chance to hang onto power may be to assassinate their own leader (who has proven to be an incompetent narcissist) and ride to victory on the sympathy vote.
As long as they can set it up to blame the deed on a right wing, Christian, anti-gay whacko, they think the people will buy it.
The Clintons would be overjoyed to participate in such a plot.
