President Obama Embraces Same-Sex Marriage

In the wake of North Carolina's overwhelming vote to approve a state constitutional amendment that defines marriage as the institution of one man, one woman, President Barack Obama has announced that he now supports redefining marriage to include homosexual partners.

Obama admits that he "has been going through an evolution on this issue." If that is the case, I'd like to know if his thinking could soon evolve to include plural, incestuous, and adult-child marriages. If Obama has flipped-flopped in his thinking on this issue, it isn't a stretch to believe that further redefinition of marriage is possible.

"Perhaps the most disturbing part of his announcement is how he frames the issue," said IFI Executive Director David E. Smith. "Obama explains that 'I've always been adamant that gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly and equally...' Of course, all of us are for fair and equal treatment for every American -- including those who self-identify as homosexual. But fairness and equality does not include legally elevating same-sex relationships to the same level of the God ordained institution of marriage," Smith explained. "They are simply not equal."

"And the notion that homosexual partners are somehow being denied the freedom to live as they wish, is absurd," continued Smith. "Homosexuals have the liberty to have a relationship with any consenting adult (or adults) they wish. No one is stopping them. Taking these relationships into the public square demanding that we change public policy, create special laws, and change the very definition of marriage is intolerable."

"Simply eliminating an entire gender from the picture and still calling it 'marriage' is not a mere redefinition of the institution, but rather the destruction of a core building block of society," concludes Smith.
