Democratic President Candidates Speak Strongly Against Traditional Marriage In Gay Forum

If Americans were looking for the most disgusting show of political pandering to date in the race for President of the United States of America, they needed to go no further than the Democratic presidential forum hosted Thursday night by the radical homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign and broadcast on the pro-homosexual television channel Logo. The questions asked of the candidates included those about how their religious beliefs affected their stance on same sex marriage. In the context of the forum the aim appeared to minimize religion in the argument against same sex marriage and promote in its stead the emphasis on the superiority of federal rights.

Each of the leading candidates said they stood against the Defense of Marriage Act and that they supported equal rights as mandated by the federal government. New York Senator Hillary Clinton said she believed in full equality for homosexuals and its "how we get there" is the debate, implying that full marriage rights for homosexuals should be done in steps. The first step is civil unions, according to Clinton who said, "I am absolutely in favor of civil unions with full equality of benefits, rights and privileges." She also said that one of her highest priorities is repealing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy of the military so that homosexuals could openly serve in the armed forces.

Illinois Senator B. Hussein Obama said he would "continue to support a civil union that provides all the benefits that are available for a legally sanctioned marriage." Obama said that federal law must convey to homosexuals all the benefits available to straight people and that individual churches could decide whether they want to accept them. Former Senator John Edwards said that he shouldn't have said he was against homosexual marriage because of his religion and that he would fight for the equal rights of homosexual couples.

It is obvious that the leading Democratic Presidential contenders support abolishing traditional marriage by conveying the rights of marriage to homosexuals. They also believe the Federal government issues rights that are superior to religious beliefs against homosexuality. The founding fathers, however, said in the Declaration of Independence that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." If rights are endowed by the Creator and the Creator says, "Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: It is abomination, "(Leviticus 18:22) tthen homosexuality cannot be condoned. And those who do condone it are against God, no matter what rights the government conveys.
