Skip to comments.Obama: ‘Americans are on our side’ on same-sex marriage
Posted on 05/14/2012 5:45:15 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Scooping up dollars for his campaign at a New York fundraiser, President Barack Obama told supporters on Monday that "the American people are on our side" when it comes to issues like same-sex marriage.
The president spoke at an event hosted by openly gay singer Ricky Martin, the LGBT Leadership Council and the Futuro Fund, where he tied his announced support for gay marriage last week to past civil rights struggles.
"We have never gone wrong when we expanded rights and responsibilities to everybody," the president said to cheers from the audience. "That doesn't weaken families, that strengthens families. It's the right thing to do."
His comments came after presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney told graduating students at Liberty University, a school founded by the late conservative televangelist Jerry Falwell, that marriage is between "one man and one woman."
"The good news is, I think the American people are on our side on this," Obama said at the New York event. Polls show that Americans are deeply divided on gay marriage. Younger Americans -- a key part of the president's history-making 2008 coalition -- tend to be more supportive.

That Kenyan faggot better think again, the American are NOT on the side of sodomy, and they are not in favor of men buggering each other.
he lives in his own little world
Your professors 50 years ago said I had to take God out of the school system and we did
25 years ago you all said I had to accept the slaughter of unborn children and we did
Now you telling me I have to accept the "unnatural" union of genders. And of course we will
Uh . . . so whats next on the agenda
If the American people are on your side, president Buffoon, then by all means please keep on hammering the gay marraige issue all the way through November.
Obama is on the wrong side of history.......the past.
“His side”...that would be the back-side...
There's a reason why gay pride marches don't beat NAMBLA guys in the parade to a pulp. They AGREE with them.
. . . and then the boys who were laughed at 50 years ago for doin their billy goats will be the next poster child?
uhmmmmm . . . sounds bout right.
I can see the headlines
Today, the first congressman declared that his billy goat deserves medical insurance. This is clearly a "civil rights issue, he argued.
and so on and on we go.
And if you dare call it perversion, then you are clearly a bigot and intolerant.
More important is that Obama not on God’s side.
1 POS Atheist wants to take prayer out of schools and it’s a done deal.
Over Half the country is against fudge packers marrying, and it being offensive to them means nothing to the 1st. gay President.
Don’t you know that to liberals, only other liberals count as fellow Americans.
The rest of us are Nazis and enemies of the common good.
FUBO! You don’t speak for this American. Do you know what an American really is?
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
The REAL polls were held in 31 states: 60-40 against.
Those were real votes...not push poll opinions.
> Uh . . . so whats next on the agenda
Well, the good news is you’ll soon be able to marry your dog.
And bad news, more that one women at the same time... which sounds like hell on Earth to me. (just kidding honey).
Wasn’t he opposed to same-sex marriage until last week? So when he says that americans are on his side now, does that mean he was against them last week?
And yet homosexual “marriage” has been defeated in every state it has been on the ballot. He is delusional. Oh yeah - and I hate him.
Wrong again, Obama.
The bad news for you, Obama, is that God is not on your side.
Obama and Romney both defy God.
I pray with all my heart and soul that he is wrong. American-Americans are not embracing the legal dominance of queers in our society.
