WSJ: “Gay? Yay! Straight news gives way to propaganda.”

    James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal: But in reading the coverage of Obama’s same-sex marriage announcement last week, we’ve been struck by how much even news reporters seem to have given up evenhandedness to propagandize on behalf of one side of a divisive social issue. The most interesting aspect of this propaganda is that it seeks to deliver two contrary messages: that Obama’s declaration was a great act of courage and that it entails no political risk.

Jonathan Adler: President says leave marriage to states while arguing it violates Federal Equal Protection

    Janathan Adler at The Volokh Conspiracy: Yet if DOMA is unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause, then how could any state law barring recognition of same-sex marriages survive constitutional scrutiny? In other words, while the President says he believes that states should be allowed to reach “different conclusions at different times” on the question of same-sex marriage, the administration’s legal position is that a state’s refusal to treat opposite-sex and same-sex couples alike is unconstitutional. So while the President may say he’d like to leave this question to the states, that’s an option his administration has already taken off the table.

Ryan T. Anderson and Thomas Messner: Obama and the Truth about Marriage

    Ryan T. Anderson and Thomas Messner at the Heritage Foundation: Sure, when running for Senate in 2004, Obama said that “marriage is between a man and a woman.” And when campaigning for the presidency in 2008, he restated that view and also claimed he did “not support gay marriage.” The truth, however, is that President Obama has repeatedly done and said things that directly undermine marriage as one man and one woman.

Ryan T. Anderson, Robert P. George & Sherif Girgis: Marriage and the Presidency

    Ryan T. Anderson, Robert P. George & Sherif Girgis at National Review: At least President Obama is not dissembling anymore about his views on marriage. And even though we consider his support of redefining marriage a deep error, he has done the nation a favor by revealing the truth about his position. So did the vice president, days earlier, when he opined about “the simple proposition” that “this is all about” — “what all marriages, at their root, are about.” That is, the administration has created a long-awaited and much-needed platform for a national discussion of the core issue in the debate: What is marriage? Consider two competing views:

In Baldwin Hills, Obama’s stance on gay marriage gets mixed reviews | LA Times

    LA Times: An anti-gay marriage group, Alliance Defense Fund, released a statement saying Obama “doesn’t understand the public purpose of marriage.” “Marriage — the lifelong, faithful union of one man and one woman — is the building block of a thriving society,” said litigation staff counsel Jim Campbell. “It’s not something that politicians should attempt to redefine for political purposes. The president has spoken eloquently about how fatherless homes often hurt children and society. Today’s statement is a tragic contradiction that promotes the creation of even more fatherless and motherless homes.”

    LA Times: Speaking from his office in Washington, D.C., Human Rights Campaign communications director Fred Sainz said the president’s expected comments could be the end to his “evolving” views on the issue. “I think the term ‘evolving’ implies constant motion with an end. I think at some point, the evolution has to end,” Sainz said. “I’m hopeful that it will be today.”

And will you be loyal to the person you love? And that’s what people are finding out, is what all marriages at their root are about, whether they’re marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals,” Biden said.
