Alright for a president who said he was gonna focus on jobs in the economy.
I guess he -- decided maybe that his policies were nothing to brag about.
So he decided to give a full -- expression to an issue that's gonna be far less controversial.
Same sex marriage.
After Joseph Biden pretty much out of them last week on Meet the Press by speaking of his comfort with people of the same gender getting married.
President Obama hurriedly summoned a cordial interview -- to the White House so he could publicly state.
That he no longer believes what he claimed to believe four years ago when he said he believed in the traditional view of marriage of one man one woman.
Now when a Republican changes his mind he's a flip flop or when a Democrat does it he's evolving.
And showing courage.
Even more interest in Obama invoked Jesus to justify.
His breaking with 5000 years of recorded human history.
And the only legal definition in western civilization of marriage.
This isn't the first time that Obama has channel Jesus to make a policy point.
When he spoke of the national prayer breakfast in February he said Jesus -- -- to pay more taxes.
Now he thinks Jesus wants is to abandon an indisputable biblical teaching about marriage.
Because his daughters think it's a good idea.
-- when my kids were in junior high they thought to be a good idea to skip school have -- for breakfast and stay up until midnight on school nights.
But what I'd like to know as.
Why is it okay for Barack Obama to publicly invoked the name of Jesus to justify high taxes -- same sex marriage.
But when I mentioned.
That my -- leads -- -- -- what Jesus said regarding marriage as a man shall leave his mother and father and a woman shall leave her home and the two will become one flesh.
I get whacked by the press as well as the pundits.
I've been called a narrow minded -- a homophobic hate monger a Neanderthal.
A right wing religious Kook.
And lot of other things I can't mention on film and television.
So if the press isn't gonna jump on President Obama for bringing up Jesus.
Then I want there to be a long line.
From the New York Times the Washington Post Newsweek the Huffington Post -- numerous others who incoming kiss my.
Rain and publicly apologize to me for being the real religious bigots who love religious talk only when -- agrees with their own views.
But hate it when it conforms to the longstanding teaching and tradition of the faith itself.
85% of Americans believe in god and the vast majority accept the teaching of the Bible is true.
In 31 states -- the people actually vote to affirm traditional marriage the people in all 31 -- said marriage still means to people of opposite genders.
Even in liberal states like California name.
Now I don't think -- puts my view in the extreme but the mainstream.
I appreciate the president talking about morality Jesus and marriage now the rest of us can freely discuss it as well.
I just hope that he won't forget that millions of Americans don't have jobs they've lost the value of their homes and they can afford to retire in no small part due to his understanding of economics.
And I hope he won't blame that.
