While Democrats do their victory lap over the recent Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide, it’s time to remind everyone where these folks were just a few years ago. Thanks to YouTube, we have the proof on video.
Oh sure, President Obama has said he has “evolved” on the gay marriage issue, but he’s really just doing what’s politically advantageous for him right now. In 2008, however, when he was trying to win over American voters, he sang a different tune, telling Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren that he strongly believed in the traditional definition of marriage of one man and one woman, citing his Christian faith as the reason.
Hillary Clinton is also a Johnny-come-lately on the issue, stating back in 2004 (while still a Senator) that the whole marriage thing was strictly Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve:
“The fundamental bedrock principle that exists between a man and a woman, going back into the midst of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.”
Oh, the conviction! The oration! The pandering! Watch and be amazed that NO ONE is showing these clips now.
