Obama: Promises to "Spread Same-sex 'Marriage' Across the Nation"

Obama: Promises to "Spread Same-sex 'Marriage' Across the Nation"

Sarah Palin Should Have Exposed Obama's Radical Pledge to Repeal DOMA in Debate Response on 'Same-Sex Marriage'
NAPERVILLE, Illinois, Oct. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- GOP vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin missed a golden opportunity Thursday in her debate with Joe Biden to expose Barack Obama's double-speak on "gay marriage," Republicans For Family Values founder Peter LaBarbera said today.

Obama claims to support traditional marriage even as he promises to fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) - signed into law by Bill Clinton - which protects states from being forced to recognize out-of- state homosexual "marriages." Obama also opposes state Marriage Protection Amendments, and even promised gay activists that he would use the "bully pulpit" to promote same-sex adoptions.

After vice-presidential debate moderator Gwen Ifill asked Biden, "Do you support, as they do in Alaska, granting same-sex benefits to couples?" the Delaware senator answered that "in an Obama-Biden administration, there will be absolutely no distinction from a constitutional standpoint or a legal standpoint between a same-sex and a heterosexual couple."

Seemingly contradicting that sweeping statement, Biden then said that he (like Obama) does not "support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage."

Responding to the same debate question, Palin strongly defended traditional marriage but failed to mention Obama's extreme plan to overturn DOMA. Palin - who as Governor vetoed a bill denying benefits to homosexual state employees on the advice that it was unconstitutional -- said granting same-sex benefits undermines marriage.

LaBarbera said Palin could have responded as follows:

"Gwen, I oppose all efforts to redefine traditional marriage, and to give marital benefits to unmarried and same-sex partners. I strongly support the Defense of Marriage Act signed into law by President Clinton in 1996. Back then, Joe Biden - like John McCain -- voted YES on DOMA, but now Biden's running-mate, Barack Obama, wants to repeal this vital law.

"It's time for some straight talk on defending marriage. 'Both-Sides Barack' claims to support traditional marriage - while simultaneously opposing DOMA and helping to defeat ballot measures in California, Florida and Arizona that would constitutionally protect marriage. If Obama gets his way and DOMA is overturned, it would open a Pandora's box for judicial activists to spread same- sex 'marriage' across the nation. By the way, Obama is even more liberal than Hillary Clinton, who pledged to repeal only part of DOMA.

"Sen. McCain and I want to preserve traditional marriage - and not just in name only like the Democrats. Obama and Biden want to give all the benefits of marriage to same-sex couples - while still pretending that they are standing up for marriage as one-man, one-woman. What a sham.

"Obama even wants to use the 'bully pulpit' to promote homosexual adoption of children. That may appeal to liberal elitists but surely not to Main Street Americans, who - perhaps 'clinging to their religion' - know instinctively that every child deserves a mom AND a dad."

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
