Default Obama backs gay marriage

I think that eventually, in secular society, even political conservatives will fall into this grave error. Really, the only reliable bulwark against all the false claims of rights and freedoms of secular society, is the teaching of the Church.

On a political note, if Obama continues to move more toward the left, he might lose too many moderates and independents to get re-elected.

From an eschatological point of view, a Romney presidency fits better with the events at the start of the tribulation. Mormon beliefs are blasphemy and idolatry from a strict Muslim point of view, so a Mormon president would fit the conflict between the U.S. and the Muslim nations during the first part of the tribulation.

Here is a Pew Research Center graphic on changing views on gay marriage:

In 2004, about 60% of Americans were against gay marriage; just over 30% were in favor. Only 8 years later, those numbers have changed from 60/30 to 43/47. I suspect that the mass media's promotion of homosexuality and gay marriage are what turned the tide.

I still say that anyone who allows their views on any subject, especially important ethical ones, to be changed by the mainstream media is an idiot, and it seems this country is crawling with idiots..

One of the approaches I use in debating people who support gay marriage is to bring this point up. Goal 26 in the list of Communist Goals is to: "Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

If this is so good and caring, why are the Communist promoting that here and not in their countries? I haven't had a coherent response yet.
