US President Barack Obama struck a significant blow for unconditional love today when he acknowleged his support for the marriage right of same-sex couples.
In an interview with ABC News today, US President Barack Obama stated his unequivocal support for gay and lesbian couples' right to get married.
The President ignored prejudiced opinions from pseudo-religious groups that claim to appertain to the religion of the One that stated "Love thy 'enemy' ", "Do not judge lest ye yourselves be judged", "Mercy I want, not sacrifice" and "Do unto others as you would have done unto you" (groups that nevertheless preach hate and discrimination in the name of their so-called "religion", which has nothing to do with the original intent of their own religion's Founder) and stood on the side of true Christianity and unconditional love in proclaiming to the world his above belief.
The President may lose votes from certain bigots over this - however, I would venture so far as to state that the vote of bigots is not worth having. Well done Mr President for going with principle.
"Different" is only a construct of the human mind, in any case. "Different" is an excuse for discrimination. In the eyes of God, if there is a God, we are all equal and loved for who we are - and there is NOTHING wrong with being gay or lesbian.
"I don't know what it's like to be gay, but I do know what it's like to be different", President Obama once stated. I can fully identify with that statement, and therefore, through simple human empathy, can totally agree with what the President has come out in support of tonight. Well done once more, Mr President.
