Obama supports gay marriage: Shep Smith warns GOP not to be ‘on the wrong side of history’
The Cutline ^ | May 9, 2012 | By Dylan Stableford

Posted on 05/09/2012 2:09:19 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Moments after ABC revealed that President Obama said during a taped interview with "Good Morning America" that he supports gay marriage, Fox News' Shepard Smith applauded the president, and warned conservatives not to use the evolution of Obama's view on same sex unions as part of its presidential campaign.

"The President of the United States, now in the 21st century," Smith said. "What I'm most curious about, in this time of rising debts and medical issues and all the rest, if Republicans would go out on a limb and try to make this a campaign issue while sitting very firmly, without much question, on the wrong side of history."

Shepard Smith is just one of the many reasons that I no longer watch Fox news.

I used to feel sorry for the guy.Now I understand he is just the enemy.

To say that on fox news really does suggest that the guy is not straight.

There’s another talking head on fox who has already outed himself but I’ve forgotten his name.

i’m not afraid of being on the wrong side of history, I am afraid of being on the wrong side of God.

Heck even from a purely secular public health perspective Homosexuality is wrong and cuts DECADES off the life expectancy of it's practitioners. It's a greater health threat than Obesity, Smoking, and Alcoholism COMBINED.

North Carolina voters showed who’s on the wrong side of this issue. It ain’t us.

We have regularly won vote after vote on this issue. Only recently when the courts and statehouses started acting as agents for the radical gay movement has there been a slide their way in public opinion, but I am guessing this overwhelming vote yesterday is going to push things back in the right direction now that it is seen as ‘ok’ to be against gay marriage again.

Sheppie is from Mississippi, and evidently his views have “evolved” since leaving the state.

Mississippi 2004 86%

Mississippi Amendment 1

Marriage may take place and may be valid under the laws of this state only between a man and a woman.

Agree totally. We've turned into Sodom and Gomorrah with this a-hole in the White House.

I did have to laugh at something I heard on the radio, though:"Of course they should be able to marry. They should be as miserable as the rest of us" (Not how I really feel, just thought it was kinda funny)

Shep is such a flaming homo..also..Obama is such a flip flopper. One minute he’s for fruit cake marriage, the other minute he’s against it. Doesn’t matter, Obama is going down in November(Larry Sinclair can attest to that fact)

Odd that all these "same sex marriage" poofters never seem to mention the ineffable romance of anonymous sexual congress in public restrooms on the Interstate.

What says love like having someone's wedding tackle being waved at you, through a hole in a bathroom stall, when you are trying to get rid of greasy pork fries on the road?

A story, most likely apocryphal, says that, back when women still had hat pins, some proto-feminist nailed what was being thrust in her face to the wall, and left to a chorus of howling...

Sitting in the Monster seats at Fenway a few years back and there was Shep in back of us with a TRAY of Bud Light. That’s 8 beers folks. Six bucks a pop! And he went back for more.

it’s all a strat to undermine and destroy the family and the church.

they have civil unions... but they want marriage.

marriage is two things in one. the governmental civil union... and the religious term, marriage.

they’ll use the same tactics as they used on the boy scouts to force the fedgov to remove tax free status from churches (as they discriminate based on religious grounds NOT to allow homo marriage)... and overnight, the (remaining) churches in the US will collapse under the sudden financial burden

therefore, in defense of the institution of marriage, religious freedom, and the churches in America... i recommend from this point forward identifying any corporations supporting homo marriage... or any companies advertising on shows supporting the homo lifestyle... and stop buying their products.

kelloggs has already been identified

we out number them. make them feel it.

It’s not just fruity Shep. Virtually all of FoxNews has a pro-gay agenda. But because of their ‘conservative’ viewership, it comes out in the way they tend to consciously DOWNPLAY the issue when it arises, so as not to rile up the ‘rubes in flyover country.’ This was really noticeable last year during that weekend when NY pushed through that gay-marriage law. They barely brought it up in passing, while the other news networks were in wall-to-wall coverage (celebratory, obviously).

Shep is a news reader. If he wants to be an activist for gay causes, let him be the liberal Hannity or resign and work for a lobbying firm. What a doofus! Glad I quit watching him years ago (soon after his drama-queen performance during Katrina).

Shep went to my highschool Marshall Academy in Holly Springs MS, a private school of about 500 K-12. He is three years older than me. He was big in chorus and glee club and never competed in sports if that tells you anything.
