Barack Obama’s stance on homosexual marriage is clearly political and everyone knows it. In his early campaigning he clearly came out in favor of traditional marriage. and let us not forget the US Courts have overruled the votes of 34 States that defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
But on Saturday, Obama couldn’t help but “lecture” his Kenyan audience on the matter:
“When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode,” Obama said at a joint press conference with the Kenyan leader in Nairobi. “And bad things happen.”
He then connected Kenya’s anti-gay laws to racism and racial-based legislation in the United States:
“And when a government gets in a habit of people treating people differently, those habits can spread,” Obama continued. “As an African-American, I am painfully aware of what happens when people are treated differently under the law.”
“The fact of the matter is Kenya and the U.S. share so many values: common love for democracy, entrepreneurship, value for families — these are some things that we share,” Kenyatta said. “But there are some things that we must admit we don’t share. Our culture, our societies don’t accept.”
“It is very difficult for us to be able to impose on people that which they themselves do not accept,” Kenyatta continued. “This is why I repeatedly say for Kenyans today the (gay rights issue) is generally a non-issue. We want to focus on other areas.”

President Kenyatta, don’t capitulate to the evil empire. Many, many Americans stand by the African people in their wisdom in rejecting homosexuality as good, normal and healthy. We look to Africa to take the lead on this issue. Our President does not speak for all of us. Thank you for your courage.
How do you feel about the Kenyan leader’s views for his people? Obama just got skunked on the national stage
