President Obama gave the okay to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which will lead to full legalization of homosexual marriage. This makes many Christians, especially in the black community who voted for him angry. After all, the Pres. did state his belief when he was a presidential candidate that marriage was between a man and a woman. I know Christians in my family/friend circle are quite upset. I wonder how other Christian blacks that voted for him mainly because he was black and Democrat are feeling about his turning his back on DOMA!
And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
So why the change of mind? Gays and lesbians are increasingly unhappy with the Pres. Obama’s inaction on the issues most important to them. This latest action against DOMA will help to retain the homosexual support for his 2012 reelection. What is it with Pres. Obama not enforcing federal laws (see this)? This turning his back on certain law enforcement, well that will have to be another post.
