Let me start off by saying unequivocally, that I do not have a problem with gays. Personally, it’s not my lifestyle, I don’t understand their lifestyle, and it’s not right for me to jump into the middle of that ring of fire. But, apparently, it IS Joe Biden’s right, or at the very least was his desire to jump in. He did so in 1973, when he said, “My gut reaction, is that they [homosexuals] are security risks, but I must admit I haven’t given this much thought…I’ll be darned!” The comments came, and again, it was a LONG time ago in 1973, when he was addressing a group of constituents at a political gathering on gay rights.
So, let me ask the question on everyone’s mind…is Joe Biden, a devout Catholic, who’s church is strongly against homosexuality, naming “homosexual acts” as “intrinsically immoral and contrary to the natural law,” and “homosexual tendencies” as “objectively disordered, against “homosexual acts” as his church preaches? Or, is he more moderate when it comes to gay rights?
Let’s delve into this question a little further. Let’s find out Joe Biden’s stance on gay marriage. He said on Meet The Press, back during the Obama administration, “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual, men and women are entitled to the same exact rights, all the rights, all the civil liberties, and quite frankly, I don’t see much of a distinction.”
That’s a pretty nice political viewpoint for a leftist politician, isn’t it? So, let’s go back a little earlier…on the campaign trail in 2008, when Joe Biden was involved in a debate with then Alaskan Governor, and Republican Vice Presidential Candidate, Sarah Palin. He was asked if he supported gay marriage, here’s what he said:
“No. Barrack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side, what, uh, constitutes marriage. We do not support that. That is basically a decision that is to be left to the faiths, and to the people who practice their faith the determination of what you call it.”
I would think there seems to be a bit of a problem of consistency here. How do you go from saying that no, marriage is basically between a man and a woman while running for office one year, and four years later, you come back with the fact that you’re comfortable with men marrying men, women marrying women?
Again, I raise this point, not to be in favor of or against gay rights. I raise the issue because of the inconsistency of the candidate while talking about it. We could be talking about any policy, any topic, any issue, it doesn’t matter. It happens that this is one of a long list of things Joe Biden has flip-flopped on over the years. He hasn’t been consistent. He has a long record of changing his mind. He calls it “evolving”. I call it “pandering”. They both lead to the same thing. He will say anything to anybody that he thinks will help get him elected. And that, my friends, is a very dangerous avenue to be on.
If Joe Biden will say anything to get a vote, he will say anything to sell out his country. That’s not that big of a stretch. Your word obviously does not mean anything if you can change your mind anytime the situation dictates depending on the crowd you are facing. And that is one of the main problems (besides the fact the man is mentally losing it) I have with Joe Biden.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
