Obama’s ‘gay marriage’ support undermines society, says US Cardinal

MANILA, May 12, 2012–New York Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan charged US President Barack Obama with undermining the “very cornerstone of society” following the latter’s support for same-sex marriage.
In a May 9 statement, the cardinal, who also serves as the President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), was quoted by Catholic News Agency as stating that they “cannot be silent in the face of words or actions that would undermine the institution of marriage, the very cornerstone of our society. The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better.”
Though the announcement was “not surprising” due to Obama’s previous actions, Dolan still finds his endorsement that “erode[s] or ignore[s] the unique meaning of marriage” as “deeply saddening.”
Last Wednesday, Obama announced his support for same-sex marriages in an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts.
“I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” was the President’s long-winded but hardly surprising affirmation of his stand regarding “gy marriage.”
Obama’s latest statement places him in firm disagreement with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who has signed a pledge to uphold marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
“I have the same view on marriage that I had when I was governor and that I’ve expressed many times,” he said at a May 9 campaign event in Oklahoma. “I believe marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman.”
So far, 30 states have passed constitutional amendments banning “gay marriage,” including North Carolina, where voters approved such a measure by an overwhelming margin on May 8.
This latest development is expected to influence Americans’ choice for the ballot, as elections take place in November. Obama has established his anti-life principles, and this recent proclamation of support for “gay marriage” confirms his anti-marrige stand as well.
As the notion of “gay marriage” in the Philippines is unlikely to prosper, pundits and pop culture-watchers were abuzz recently with the controversy surrounding suggestions for natural-born males to be admitted into beauty pageants for women after undergoing physical alteration. (CBCP for Life)
