Banning divorce and criminalizing adultery would go a lot further to defending and protecting the institution of marriage than passing a definition bill.

No need to ban divorce, or criminalize adultery. Return to divorce laws that did not allow no-fault divorce. Adultery would be a situation where divorce could be had under those laws, as would domestic violence, etc.

No one knows quite what to make of Joe Biden’s apparent endorsement of same-sex marriage on Sunday.

At least initially, some took the vice president’s pronouncement that he’s “absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights” as a trial balloon – a way for the White House to test public reaction and determine whether it’s safe for President Obama to join the pro-marriage equality chorus.

But the speed and force with which Obama’s camp downplayed Biden’s statement (and Biden’s own subsequent clarification that he, like Obama, is merely “evolving” on gay marriage) suggests it may just have been just another of the off-script moments to which the vice president is prone. There’s also a theory, proposed by TPM’s Josh Marshall, that the entire episode amounts to an elaborate plot by the White House to subtly shift Obama to a pro-gay marriage position without anyone really noticing.

If you consider Biden’s gay marriage remarks in the context of his entire “Meet the Press” interview, though, a different possible motive comes to mind: Maybe he was just thinking about himself.... Our First Gay Vice President! LMAO!

Obama’s Incoherent Stance on Gay Marriage


by Jesse Singal
May 8, 2012

The miniature media circus touched off by Joe Biden’s endorsement of gay marriage highlights the president’s complete incoherence on the issue. Jesse Singal looks at Obama’s illogical opportunism.


In the wake of Biden's assertion that he is "absolutely comfortable" with same-sex marriage on Sunday's episode of Meet the Press and a similar comment from Arne Duncan on Monday morning, reporters pounced on the White House press secretary during his press conference yesterday, desperately trying to transmute the officials' remarks into some long-awaited clarity on Obama's gay-marriage stance.

It's a circus, yes, and journalists could be making better use of their time by educating readers about the numerous substantive policy differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney. But there's a reason Biden's comment turned into a media microflare: it highlights the extreme incoherence of Obama's position on gay marriage.



he said in late 2010, explaining that he was in favor of civil unions but not marriages. "This is something that we're going to continue to debate, and I personally am going to continue to wrestle with going forward."

But it hasn't always been such a struggle for him. As Richard Kim, an editor for The Nation, pointed out in 2009, when Obama ran for state Senate in Illinois in 1996, he was a full-blown supporter of gay marriage. Since then, he has "'evolved' rightward," as Kim put it yesterday.

No one can look inside Obama's head, of course. But the most likely resolution to this mystery is that he simply hasn't been honest about his stance on gay marriage.


Frankly, Obama is a Liar.

Obama is afraid to come OUT too strong about gay marriage.

He's afraid some one will OUT him and his former lover, Larry Sinclair.

Here's a picture of the lovely couple (note Obama affectionately looking at his 'guy-pal', Larry:

And your vote is being overturned by the courts.

Get ready for same-sex couples marrying in California by the end of the year.

And the leftist 9th circuit court ruling is due for a challenge by the SCOTUS since the Court is trying to Overturn a Constitutional Amendment.


The federal appeals court that declared California's same-sex marriage ban to be unconstitutional has its decisions overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court more often than other judicial circuits, a record that could prove predictive if the high court agrees to review the gay marriage case on appeal.

A reason for multiple partner marriages: Broke Obama Sr.



Barack Obama's father: Bigamist, drunk and wife-beater




Shortly after being elected first black president of Harvard Law Review, Barack Obama signed a deal to write a memoir of his life. Remarkably literate, given it was written so young, the book revolves around his quest for identity as the child of a white teenage mother and an African father who walked out when he was just two.

Despite titling it Dreams From My Father, the absent parent was little more than a shadow.‘After a week of my father in the flesh, I had decided that I preferred his more distant image,’ reflected Barack Obama on the short time they spent together in his boyhood.

Well, he is unknown no longer. He has been bought to life in a compelling biography by American journalist Sally H. Jacobs. And what a vile man he turns out to have been: a drunken, wife-beating, bribe-taking bigamist of extreme arrogance, who spent much of his life propping up bars while bemoaning his fate and running down rivals.

His nickname was Double-Double after the way he liked his whisky. He was a fantasist, who told self-aggrandising stories and impersonated his bosses.

He married four times and had seven or nine children, depending who you listened to. And he was such a brazen womaniser he even bought mistresses home when his latest wife was asleep, loudly demanding the marital bed for his conquests.
