The real news today: Obama was always for faux marriage
By Selwyn Duke

So another mask has dropped. Barack Obama made history Wednesday in becoming the first president to announce support for faux marriage.

And on January 20th, 2009 he made history in becoming the first president who supports faux marriage.

Obama revealed himself in a Wednesday interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts, saying, "At a certain point I've just concluded that, um, for me, personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that, uh, I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."

This statement was made after Obama explained his "evolution" on the issue, a hothouse transformation that included discussions with homosexuals on his staff. But here's the reality: the aforementioned "certain point" he reached had more to do with the electorate's perceived evolution than anything else. This is because Barack Obama has always been pro-faux marriage.

How do I know? For starters, Obama isn't a Christian, as he claims; he isn't a Muslim, as some critics claim, although he is a Muslim sympathizer.

He is a moral relativist and de facto atheist.

But, unlike with my first two sentences, I repeat myself.

And being a thoroughly modern Alinskyite secularist, he will always be on the cutting edge of societal devolution, which includes support for the undermining of marriage.

If that isn't enough for you, though, consider that, writes ABC News, "[i]n 1996, as a state Senate candidate, he [Obama] indicated support for gay marriage in a questionnaire, but Obama aides later disavowed it and said it did not reflect the candidate's position." Allow me to translate: "Our guy was dumb enough to reveal that he supported faux marriage when he needs votes in areas in which blacks are numerically strong. And, as you may know, the black community doesn't look kindly upon faux marriage. So just ignore that man behind the curtain! Barack is down!"

And now Obama is a bit down in the polls. What's his game? Did loose-cannon Biden put him on the spot by announcing his acceptance of faux marriage earlier in the week? Or was half-slow Joe's remark a trial balloon? Is Obama trying to shore up support among his demoralized base? Whatever the case, know that the president's problem isn't that marriage, like the matter of when life begins, is above his pay grade.

It's that morality and telling the truth are above his pay grade.

And now think about this: If Obama was willing to drop the marriage mask before the election, what masks will be dropped after it when, as he said to Dmitry Medvedev, he has "more flexibility"?

For sure, he will continue to evolve. Heck, he may even announce that he's a communist before 2016 is up — no doubt after discussing the issue with the Marxists on his staff.
