Wendy Long on the Obama-Gillibrand "same-sex marriage" campaign

There really was not a reaasonable doubt that Obama and Gillibrand are Etch-a-Sketch candidates, especially after the proposed HHS Obamacare regulations violating religious liberty and freedom of conscience earlier this year, but, just in case, the two of them just eliminated the doubt.

On May 10, 2012, United States Senate candidate Wendy Long issued the following statement on the efforts of President Obama and her opponent, New York junior U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, to legalize "same-sex marriage" across the United States:

"President Obama has now established that he's as big a flip-flopper as Senator Gillibrand, and it is no wonder: they are both desperate to shift the national spotlight away from their terrible record on jobs, our skyrocketing federal debt, taxes and federal spending.

"Instead of respecting the right of citizens in every state to make the laws they wish regarding marriage, and instead of focusing on the serious economic problems confronting our state and our nation, Kirsten Gillibrand has chosen to focus on a national campaign pledging to, in her words, 'take this fight all across the country,' in an effort to impose her own personal social agenda."

May 9th E-Mail Appeal from Senator Gillibrand to Supporters

Dear _______ ,

In an interview with Robin Roberts this afternoon, President Obama publicly announced his support for marriage equality.

This is a historic moment in our fight for marriage equality. We're getting closer.

It was not long ago that we passed marriage equality right here in New York. Now, with President Obama on our side, we can take this fight all across the country.

We know that President Obama is going to come under attack from some members of the far right. That's why I hope you'll join me right now in telling President Obama that we stand with him.

Polls show that the public is on our side. President Obama is too. But you can be sure there are some who will attack him for taking this stance.

We must keep up the fight. Marriage equality depends on it.

Obama's support for "same-sex marriage" goes back to the twentieth century. In 2008 he posed as a supporter of traditional marriage, to be electable. Now he thinks it will help him to return to publicly supporting "same-sex marriage."

Gillibrand is even worse. Obama at least has never claimed to be a Roman Catholic, but Gillibrand claims to be a lifelong Roman Catholic.

"Marriage, by definition, is a lifelong union between one man and one woman. The Catholic Church does not recognize, even as a civil marriage, a contracted relationship between two men or two women." (http://catholicism.about.com/od/catholicliving/f/FAQ_Marriage.htm)

Obviously Gillibrand knows that.

Obviously Gillibrand is a phony Catholic and a genuine political opportunist.

New York needs better representation.
