Obama: I won’t make churches conduct gay marriages
washington examiner ^ | JUNE 26, 2013 | JOEL GEHRKE

Posted on 06/26/2013 2:06:27 PM PDT by Cheerio

President Obama, in his statement hailing the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, promised that he wouldn’t try to force religious institutions to conduct gay marriages.

“On an issue as sensitive as this, knowing that Americans hold a wide range of views based on deeply held beliefs, maintaining our nation’s commitment to religious freedom is also vital,” Obama said. “How religious institutions define and consecrate marriage has always been up to those institutions. Nothing about this decision — which applies only to civil marriages — changes that.”

The Courts will finish this and Obozo may not have to do anything. Next up Polygamy and Pedophiles.

Just a couple of years ago he was saying he believed that marriage was between a man and a woman. Then he needed money and “changed his mind”.

He already tried to force a Lutheran church to appoint a woman as a pastor through the Equal Protection clause of the 14th. The man lies.

He will order his people to sue the churches.

Then it will become mandatory.

In other words, he will. Yes, I do believe this is double-speak. His allies will now put pressure on all churches to force this sin upon descent people.

I am sure it came from the White half.

What an outright a-hole.

At first I thought this was a semi-satire story.
can you imagine this a-hole saying he won’t force this on Church’s like he really had the power too if he wanted.

What an arrogant MF’er./

Well, he might not, but the courts certainly will, eventually. Also, businesses will be forced to provide benefits to their homo employees’ lovers and cater to them as customers, even if their lifestyle is in direct opposition to the business owner’s religion or principles.

Exactly! He will have Holder do it and then claim he knew nothing about it. His S.O.P. is to have his Brown Shirts And Neo SS do all his dirty work while he lies about his knowledge or complicity.

This is to implant the notion in people’s minds that he has the power to do so if he so chooses. After which he’ll announce he’s “evolved” on this issue and attempt to issue a diktat to non-compliant churches.

No, it will be somebody like Holder. Obama’s got plenty of flunkies to take the heat, while he gives the orders. Just like Chicago.

I wouldn’t trust anyone who opposes measures to save those babies born that have survived botched abortions (and claims to be a Christian). Didn’t Obama also support DOMA in the past?

Yep, his best buddy Holder will handle that part. And every caterer, reception facility, florist, baker, wedding dress shop, etc., etc., in the USA will be clearly shown that they had better serve all who come to them for services, or the intimidation by the IRS on tea party groups will look like kindergarten.

Of course he will.

He’s a dictator now.

And NSA, FBI, CIA, DOJ, DOH, SS, IRS, EPA are his henchmen.

Just like when the Boy Scouts caved the next day the degenerate freaks were not appeased. They didn’t even wait 24 hours before they pushed to destroy them again.
