President to Address Nation’s Largest LGBT Lobby Group

with one comment

While politicians in Charleston play down the threat to the redefinition of marriage in West Virginia, President Obama prepares to address the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) 13th Annual Dinner this Saturday night.

According to several reports, HRC – the nation’s leading pro-homosexual lobbyist group – has been lobbying in recent days for legislation permitting gays serving openly in the military, extending hate crimes based upon one’s “sexual orientation,” and the repeal of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  While several such legislative initiatives will have varying degrees of success, it is clear where the President stands concerning DOMA.  According to

Obama has made many promises to gay activists.  One of those promises came at the signing of a memorandum granting same-sex benefits to federal employees.

“Among the steps we have not yet taken, is to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA),” he said.  “I believe it is discriminatory, I think it interferes with state’s rights, and we will work with Congress to overturn it.”

The debate over whether or not there is a concerted effort to redefine marriage nationwide is over.  There is no legitimate reason to prevent West Virginians from determining for themselves under which definition of marriage they will consent to be governed.
