First of all, according to Breitbart, in 2008 Barack Obama said, “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.” At the time Obama was running for president. A presidential candidate supporting same-sex marriage in 2008 would have had a difficult time winning the election, as the position was outside the mainstream at that time.
In 2011, just three years later, Obama said, “My opinion on gay marriage is evolving.” This statement came at a time when he was struggling to raise money for his re-election campaign. The gay community is a significant donor base for Democrats.
And then in May 2012, Obama was needing a draw for his campaign to continue his imperial lordship and announced that he is in favor of gay marriage - then the very next day, the VERY NEXT DAY, he flies to Hollywood with grubby hands out raking in huge sums of money from gay-friendly Hollywood radicals.
Then Obama invoked God's blessing upon Planned Parenthood which obviously fueled Iowa Democrats to pull this latest stunt. Back in April, President Obama spoke to Planned Parenthood closing with:
“As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” said Obama. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”
Now, the democrats have really sunk to a new low. Ed Morrissey on HotAir reports the following and sums it up best:
In Iowa, at least Democrats have gone back to openly praying, but perhaps they should be hoping that God isn’t listening:
They made the unusual decision, for Democrats, to begin the event with a prayer. This was likely in response to a prayer vigil being conducted by pro-life activists at the same time nearby.Des Moines activist Midge Slater took the podium and spent five and a half minutes thanking God for abortion rights, abortion doctors and taxpayer funding for abortions. She also referred to the decision to have an abortion as “a blessing”.During the entire prayer, State Senator Jack Hatch and Rep. Tyler Olson, both of whom are running for governor, kept their heads bowed and eyes closed, joining in the group prayer.
The Iowa Republican transcribed a bit of the prayer, which goes on for quite a while:
“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”
Here’s my favorite part, very obviously aimed at the pro-life demonstrators:
“We pray for women who have been made afraid by their paternalistic religion.”
Afraid? For feminists, they don’t seem to have much faith in women to decide for themselves whether to live as Christians and follow its tenets without fear forcing them into it. However, based on this prayer for blessings on abortions and the demand to spread it worldwide, I’d guess that they’re less interested in faith than they are in their own political agendas anyway.
