Same-sex marriage and an election year ...let the fireworks begin

I don't know about the rest of you but I will be so happy when the upcoming presidential election is finished.

You may, or may not, have noticed that television ads are beginning to take up more time slots than scheduled programming.

What is sad — actually just downright disgusting, is that the stuff we are hearing could make Pinocchio jealous.

The latest hot topic is changing laws to allow same-sex marriages. North Carolina held an election this week that would allow for same-sex couples to wed. The measure was soundly defeated.
Liberals have been coming unglued since the election. They claim that everyone has the right to make their own choices and marry whomever they choose.

The majority of Americans seem to still believe that marriage is a religious, or faith-based, action first and foremost. The governmental status of marriage is an entirely different issue. In other words, marriage, in the eyes of God, is one man and one woman.

What strikes me as I watch current events unfold is that all of the voices we hear are those crying loudly that same-sex marriage should be legalized and that they, the liberal masses, are being discriminated against because gays are not allowed to marry.

The media, in their ever-present bias reporting ways, manages to film, interview and focus on pro-gay marriage individuals and groups. To read and see the media coverage, one would swear that 99.9 percent of Americans supports same-sex marriage.

Why, then, do such issues get voted down by such wide margins? Could it be that the big media organizations are ignoring the majority of the people? Could the liberal media be attempting to sway public opinion by telling only one side of the story?

Part of the reason is that America has such a mind-set of political correctness, those who are in the majority are afraid to speak out publicly because they will be branded as anti-gay and chastised mercilessly.

Americans are being brainwashed into following the leader — or should I say dictator. We are being "trained" to forget our religious beliefs and go with the flow ... as seen through rose-colored liberal glasses.

That brings us to President Barack Obama's latest wolf-in-sheep's-clothing remark. Our president is now on record as being in favor of gay marriage. Guess what folks? It is an election year. Obama has not spoken a word of truth since taking office. He is one of the most crooked politicians in American history and all he wants is to get re-elected. Of course he is in favor of same-sex marriage.

This is the same man who has been photographed failing to salute the American flag. This is the same man who has repeatedly apologized to foreign countries for America's actions.

Now hear this, Barack Obama cannot be trusted.

As for same-sex marriage, the only equitable solution is to recognize "marriage" as what it is, a religious union of a man and a woman — exactly as God intended.
There should be civil union laws for same-sex couples. They should be afforded the same benefits as any other American.

A "couple" in the eyes of American law is fine, but a "married couple", one man and one woman, is only valid in the eyes of God.
