President Barack Obama claims his position on gay marriage is "constantly evolving". He is "grappling". Front man Eric Holder claims those who wish to preserve both tradition and heritage are engaged in "stereotype-based thinking". Yeah, middle America, the taxpaying burro is the Mini-me of evil. The federal Defense of Marriage Act finds a societal shield endangered by Presidential seal. Duped again, by the message of change.
I strongly support marriage as a fenced asset for Americans, an unassailable concept on which the survival of society is dependent. Stable heterosexual marriages are the safety net for children. The decline of the traditional family, as already noted by our divorce rates, erode our national health. Gay "marriages" further erode national health in manner both perceptible and subtle.
While President Obama shows confusion which bends easily to political power bloc, many Americans remain firm in conviction. Polling questions twist in the wind and skew the national will based on the way they are presented. Questions address human rights. Hell, who isn't for rights? But should we support what is wrong? It is wrong to kick traditional societal mores aside which have served our nation well. Strong marriages provide for a strong American fabric.
Marriage is a sacred vow taken between adult men and women, acknowledging that it is only with a consideration to honor God and His divine laws that society retains a smattering of a real chance. Strong marriages provide the bedrock which make allowances for the non-traditional arrangements which can erode, but not destroy the family. But when the bedrock is destroyed, a nation declines.
The family unit with the protective function of the male and nurturing function of the female demonstrate gender identity and human relations and how things are meant to work. This complimentary relationship of husband and wife, their love for each other, models for the children the best available option.
A middle-aged president is still seeking to determine his convictions. But since he still "grapples" should he use the powerful Presidential Seal when lacking the clear voice to defend his own position? Pity the man.
