    President Obama and singer Ricky Martin bonded at a fundraiser today in New York over their mutual support for gay marriage. "We admire his courage, like the courage he showed last week in affirming his belief in marriage equality," the pooler quotes Martin, an openly-gay musician famous for hits such as "Livin' la vida loca," as saying when he introduced Obama at a fundraiser today. "That is the kind of courage we expect from our presdient and that is why we support him."
  • MSNBC's Chris Matthews to Black Pastor: 'I Hope You Evolve'

    Hardball anchor Chris Matthews, who routinely smears his political opponents as racist, on Monday lectured an African American minister who opposes gay marriage, "I hope you evolve." The host patronizingly added, "I'm just teasing." How would he (or MSNBC for that matter) react if a conservative said such a thing to a black leader? Matthews interviewed Bishop Harry Jackson, who has spoken out against Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage. Speaking of Jesus Christ, Matthews ridiculously linked accusations that Mitt Romney once bullied a teen, nearly 50 years ago: "Do you think [Christ] would have been chasing after the kid...
  • Obama's gay marriage flip-flop helps Romney seal the deal with evangelicals

    Near the end of the competitive part of the recent Republican presidential primary season, Gov. Mitt Romney began showing growing support among evangelical voters. The Mormon had been losing that influential portion of the GOP base by lopsided proportions. Not anymore. Thank you, Barack Obama. As his nomination in August became clear, the contrast between Romney's family life and moral convictions and those of his Democrat opponent became starkly clear, no more so than following President Obama's forced flip last week to supporting gay marriage, following an alleged push by Vice President Joe Biden. Obama's move was wildly popular among...

    This week, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan essentially endorsed same-sex marriage. The Obama campaign, however, wary of minority and blue-collar voters, promptly announced that President Obama was against same-sex marriage -- sort of -- but that his position was "evolving." Like a flower waiting to bloom, eventually Obama?s support for same-sex marriage would spring full-fledged into existence. I tried this rhetorical trick on my wife the other day. She asked me to take out the garbage; I told her that my thinking was "evolving" on the subject, and I needed a few more days to...
  • Same-sex marriage debate: Many of Obama’s top fundraisers are gay

    The controversy that has erupted this week over President Obama's stance on same-sex marriage has cast a spotlight on the importance of the gay community to his re-election fundraising efforts. Many of Obama’s key financial supporters are gay, including finance director Rufus Gifford and Democratic National Committe treasurer Andrew Tobias, and the campaign has held a steady series of fundraisers focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender donors. A review of Obama’s top bundlers--those who have brought in $500,000 or more for the campaign--shows that about one in six publicly identify themselves as gay. His overall list of bundlers also...
  • Obama Devolves (regarding same sex marriage)

    Crisis Magazine ^ | May 14, 2012 | Robert R. Reilly
    Both Vice-President Joseph Biden and President Barack Obama have said that their positions regarding same-sex marriage have evolved. When you are “evolving,” you should really watch your grammar. Otherwise, people might suspect you are devolving instead.Take for instance, the hapless Joe Biden’s pronouncement of why he supports same-sex marriage. It’s all a matter of “who do you love.” His statement is both substantively and grammatically incorrect. It should, of course, be “whom do you love”. “You” is the subject and “whom” is the object of the verb “love.” Biden’s grammatical error reveals the problem with same-sex marriage. It has two...

    COLONIE — The Episcopal Church must embrace change and diversity if it is to move forward, the presiding bishop of the 2.4 million member church said Friday. "We need to discover ways to engage in the outside community," Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said, in urging the 125 delegates attending the Province II Synod of the Episcopal Church to recognize that while many believe the church is an unchanging rock, it too slowly evolves. "'We are beginning to discover a way forward into a new chapter in the church's history," Jefferts Schori said. "If we are going to save the...

    Why the lack of pounding home this message at Liberty U? If he could take the time to say that marriage is "the relationship between one man and one woman" he could have used this occasion to pound the message home that he will push for a constitutional amendment that says that marriage shall be between one man and one woman. Some might say that there was no need to since Romney is not going to focus on social issues like this, as this would be a distraction and all. But that argument doesn't hold water, because if he could...

    SFGate: City Insider ^ | 5/14/12 | Rachel Gordon, Chronicle Staff Writer
    San Francisco wouldn’t be San Francisco if not for robust political debate, even over a seemingly feel-good request to the U.S. Secretary of the Navy to name a ship after gay civil rights leader Harvey Milk, the assassinated city supervisor who served as a Navy officer during the Korean War. Critics of the idea, led by Supervisor Christina Olague and a contingent from the San Francisco gay Democrat club named in Milk’s honor, don’t think he would have wanted his name associated with a military ship. Milk was “against the Vietnam War and war in general,” Olague said of Milk,...

    Original title: Obama calls pastors to explain gay marriage support; black churches ‘conflicted’ by president’s decision --------------------------------------------- After making his historic remarks on same-sex unions last week, President Barack Obama led a conference call with black church pastors to explain his support for gay marriage, the New York Times reports. The call, which was held with "eight or so African-American ministers," occurred about two hours after the president's interview with ABC's Robin Roberts. Obama explained to them that he struggled with the decision, pastors on the call told the paper, but several voiced their disapproval. "They were wrestling with their...

    For the third year in a row, a narrow majority of Americans consider gay and lesbian relations morally acceptable, signaling that this is the new “new normal” in public opinion, according to a new Gallup Poll released Monday just days after President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage. More than half of American adults, 54 percent, say gay or lesbian relations are morally acceptable — including 66 percent of Democrats and just 36 percent of Republicans — while 42 percent think they are morally wrong, Gallup found. Since 2010, a slight majority of Americans have found gay relations...

    Former MSNBC contributor and conservative author Pat Buchanan appeared on Fox’s America Live with Megyn Kelly on Monday where he said that President Barack Obama’s recent embrace of gay marriage imperils his presidency. He said that gay marriage rights is the “heart of the cultural war” and that Republican voters are “right now riding to the sound of the guns” to get behind Republican candidate Mitt Romney as a result of Obama’s support for same-sex marriage rights.

The Informer endorses President Barack Obama's stance: There will be those who seek to use this issue to divide our community. As a people, we cannot afford such division. It is our hope that conversations on strengthening African American families continue in a civil and respectful way, on all sides, both with those who support the ability of same-sex couples to marry, and those who do not. We are glad that President Obama has joined Dr. Joseph...

    Former Fifth District Congressman Virgil Goode blasted presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as “the father of homosexual marriages” in a statement released to the news media on the eve of Romney’s visit to Liberty University this weekend. Goode, now running for president on the Constitution Party ticket, referred to Romney’s move as Massachusetts governor to issue same-sex marriage licenses in the wake of a state-court ruling. “Gov. Romney did not stand fast in favor of traditional marriage,” said Goode, who lost his Fifth District seat in 2008 to Democrat Tom Perriello. Goode said he has been a “consistent supporter...

    Barney Frank told the panel on ABC’s This Week that “I don’t think anyone’s vote was changed” when Barack Obama endorsed the legalization of same-sex marriage — but that might be too optimistic an analysis. The New York Times reports that the White House went on a charm offensive with leaders of faith organizations, including and perhaps especially African-American churches where opposition to gay marriage runs high. So far, the charm offensive has had mixed results: About two hours after declaring his support for same-sex marriage last week, President Obama gathered eight or so African-American ministers on a conference call...

    DENVER – A bill to legally recognize civil unions in Colorado may be headed for a quick death at the legislative special session. House Speaker Frank McNulty (R-Highlands Ranch) opened the session Monday morning by assigning Senate Bill 2 to the State Veterans & Military Affairs Committee – a committee many experts believe will vote down the measure. “Last week, he didn’t have enough votes to stop civil unions, so he played procedural games to allow his minority to thwart the majority of the House and of the people of Colorado,” House Democratic Leader Mark Ferrandino said. “Today, he still...
