Obama has just announced that he now supports homosexual marriage. He is the first sitting President to say that.
He does not explain, though, on what basis he formerly considered it immoral. If it’s OK now, why wasn’t it OK before? He doesn’t tell us how bad became good, how sin transformed into righteousness.
I’m assuming he previously thought it immoral, for if he had thought it moral, and nothing to be ashamed of, why wouldn’t he have supported it from the start?
With any shift in morality we should demand a definition of morality and an acknowledgment of one’s source and standard of it.
In his announcement speech, he implied that it was the monogamous aspect of same-sex couples, who are faithfully devoted to one another, which entitles them to marriage rights.
So, now, Obama is judging homosexuals who have multiple partners as immoral, and monogamous couples as moral? He’s implying that there is something immoral about homosexuals who have more than one partner, but those who are monogamous have earned the right to be married.
Where does he get his shifting moral standards from, how does he define morality, and what’s next?
You could have at least some respect for a man who had the integrity to answer that.
