On the lighter side, besides reporting the stories as they have been so disheartening last week, I would like to just put something straight to my readers. Yes, I am a follower and supporter of President Barrack Obama, and I am the author of this Very liberal stated blog, but I must say that I do have my own beliefs, whether they are Democratically supported or Republican supported.
One such belief is my thought on marriage. As the saying goes as reminded to me by my wife Virginia, God created Adam and Eve. God did not create Adam and Steve. Yes, I am NOT a supporter of gay marriage, even though President Obama and the entire Democratic caucus as a whole now supports gay rights. But at the same time as I do not support it, doesn't mean that others who believe differently cannot practice what they believe in. Another reason I feel strongly the way that I do is because God created a man and a woman so that they could bring children into this world. Men or women for that matter who practice gay marriage ultimately may have sex with someone outside of their marriage, and may bear a child. So now this begs the question, does having an extra marital affair outside of a gay relationship that bears a child, would that be ok? As a devout Catholic, my church would never support gay marriages, let alone any right of a couple to bear a child outside of wedlock. Having ANY child out of wedlock is not the correct thing to do, by anyone's standard.
Again, as a devout supporter of President Obama, I back him up 100%, except when it comes to the issue of gay marriage. I do not support it, and never will. My Catholic Church and our new Pope, Francis I is staunchly against gay marriage.
