Anderson: Civility, Bullying and Same-Sex Marriage

 

Ryan Anderson asks the question "Will government discriminate against those who believe marriage is the union of a man and woman?":

ObamaFourteen months ago, President Obama was a bigot. Now he is simply wrong. That's what you have to believe to agree with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's majority opinion for the Supreme Court on the Defense of Marriage Act.

Kennedy writes that the only reason Congress had for passing DOMA -- which defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman for the purposes of federal law -- was to "disparage," "injure," "degrade," "demean" and "humiliate" gay and lesbian Americans.

So in 2008 when the American people elected a president opposed to redefining marriage, they elected a bigot. Got it?

When President Obama "evolved" on the issue just over a year ago, he insisted that the debate about marriage was legitimate one. He said there are people of goodwill on both sides. (Kansas City Star)
