Senator John Kerry today wrote an Op-Ed piece for the Boston Globe for one reason and one reason alone. To cover for President Barack Obama’s ever “evolving” position on same sex marriage.
“Marriage is deeply personal – our positions are based on unique combinations of reason, belief, and experience, not polling and politics. Everyone is entitled to his own view, in his own time, including the president.”
After reading this article I am actually glad that Kerry LOST his presidential bid because no where in his article does he state that elected officials are there to do whats “just and right for the American people” and follow and fight for constitutional rights that the law demands even though they might not believe in them personally.
We are now not only battling the religious right and the Republicans but we are allowing the President of the United States and the DNC to make same sex marriage a “phony debate about a real issue” who are reinforcing an opinion that polls & personal beliefs are somehow MORE relevant than 14th Amendment (equality under law) & separation of church & state just to pander to a part of America that will never vote for Obama anyway while spitting in the face at the gay and lesbian community at same time.
No one better that the President, the child of a mixed-race marriage & student of Constitutional Law, should understand better than anyone the legal question of second-class status. And just for the fact that he doesn’t and/or refuses to.
President Obama, same sex marriage is not about your personal opinion. It’s about whats right according to the constitution.
Barack Obama is entitled to his own views and personal beliefs. But not PRESIDENT Barack Obama of the United States of America.
Check that at the White House door.
