From Media Matters for America -- May 9, 2012:
Jim Hoft: "Obama Continues Attacks On Christian Church." In a May 9 post on Gateway Pundit headlined "Obama Continues Attacks On Christian Church -- Throws His Support Behind Gay Marriage," Jim Hoft wrote:
You knew this was coming. After Joe Biden came out and supported gay marriage (something that is against his Catholic faith), and then Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education of all people, came out and endorsed gay marriage... You knew this was a planned strategy, promoted by Democrats and pushed by the liberal media, for Barack Obama to come out and support gay marriage too.
In an interview with ABC, Barack Obama just came out in support of gay marriage. He just threw MILLIONS of Christian Americans under the bus.
Personally, I don't have a problem with gay relationships. I don't have a problem with gay unions. I do have a problem with a president pushing a law on the people with the specific intent of punishing the Church and Christian Americans. [Gateway Pundit, 5/9/12, emphasis original]
Fox Regular Bill Donohue: Obama "Has Fully Broken With His Christian Moorings" Frequent Fox guest and Catholic League president Bill Donohue reacted to the news by urging for a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between "two people who can naturally produce a family, namely a man and a woman":
In 1996, when Barack Obama was up for a state senate post in Illinois, he said he supported gay marriage. Eight years later, when he set his sights on the U.S. Senate, he discovered his Christian roots and said he was against it. In 2008, he said he was opposed to homosexuals marrying, but he also opposed a ballot initiative in California, Proposition 8, that affirmed marriage as being exclusively between a man and a woman. In other words, his Christian roots were losing their grip. Since then he's been "evolving." Now the evolution is over and he has fully broken with his Christian moorings.
The time has finally come to pass a constitutional amendment affirming marriage as an institution reserved to the only two people who can naturally produce a family, namely a man and a woman. [Catholic League, 5/9/12]
