Obama supports gay marriage while Republicans oppose it

Barack Hussein Obama is the first African American to hold the office of the President of the United States of America, and the first sitting U.S. president to publically support legalizing same sex marriage and abortion.       

Democratic Obama, after years of lengthy discussions with his friends and family, including his wife and two young daughters, “personally” believes gays and lesbians should have the right to marry: “At a certain point I've just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”

However, a platform proposed by the Republican party affirms the right of the states and federal government not to recognize same sex marriage alluding to the constitutional amendment that defines marriage as a union of a man and a woman.

In addition, the platform says that “the unborn child has  a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.” Republicans announced that the party will not fund healthcare that includes abortion coverage, neither organizations that perform or advocates abortion.

In 2008, as a candidate, Obama was against same sex marriage and abortion. However, he altered his views, and turned a blind eye to the votes of African-Americans, blue-collar Catholics, and Hispanics, who are opposers of the matter during the 2009 elections in order to gain more votes and increase his popularity.

“Liberty is no vice!” That is the motto that liberals have adopted in legalizing what God has ordained as impermissible. In the Bible, the Book of Genesis, it has been mentioned that when God created a partner for Adam, he created Eve, not another Adam. This means that perfect partnership requires some level of difference on the physical biological level and because it is the normal and only means by which offspring are created.
