There seems to be a buzz about the big news this week. Straight from the Oval Office and straight from the President. If you’re referring to his stance on Gay Marriage, it is. What I am about to say that might make you mad. It might make you feel whatever, and like always like a Sagittarius, I’m going to tell the truth whether it helps, or hurts. And for those who are extremely sensitive about this topic, I will advise you not to read this blog. Now if you’re not afraid, you have my permission to read on as usual.

Yesterday, the President gave his response about his view of Gay Marriage, and many like others have an opinion about it. There are many viewpoints from both sides for and against. And third option of truth. Yes, he does support it and I think I may have read a earlier clue in Rolling Stone about having equality for all families. The issue of Rolling Stone that just came out for May 10th. He described in context that after “don’t ask don’t tell” that he is working on fairness for the Gay and Lesbian folks in terms as being full fledged members of the American family. Folks there’s proof in the pudding right there. So that is one part of the news that rocked the nation sort of speak. I heard what he said on Good Morning America like everyone else, but my mind goes back to Rolling Stone, in my view.

Obama Kids Shaped President on Same-Sex Marriage

Now what is my stance on this? I’ll tell you . My stance on Obama’s viewpoint of Gay Marriage is fair game. Technically, I will say this as a Christian, a Citizen, an African-American, a registered voter,  and many other things that I label or connect to (OK I’ll put that on the shelf for a second as an individual). Here’s something I need to know: I have NO PROBLEM with President Barack Obama’s viewpoint of Gay Marriage in terms of support. NONE!  There might be those who maybe against it because of the stance of religion, or upbringing in families with the One Man and One Woman thing. Fine. However, speaking of religion, hate to provoke the thought, for those who say it’s a sin, or they’re setting a bad example per say, why is it always that I hear in church that you should “love thy neighbor” or my personal favorite, “judge not yet ye be judged”? Or what happened to respecting other people? My late grandfather once said treat people as if YOU wanted to be treated! That was and is REAL TALK! How many of those who go to church ACTUALLY keep that in mind each time, without bashing  or commenting the thought of some folks having the lifestyle of being Gay or Lesbian or involved with Same Sex Marriage? How many of those who go to work, ACTUALLY keep in mind about treating workers fairly with respect without bashing or commenting the thought of some folks on their job being apart of the LGBT community or Same Sex Marriage? Chris Rock once said if you don’t like gays, you might have a gay son. Or whoever you hate, might be in your family! Can I get a witness? How many of those who go to movies, the mall, the concerts, the clubs, a best friends wedding or funeral, special project or whatever ACTUALLY keep in mind about not talking smack about those who are in Same Sex Marriages? Just asking. Simply because it’s a humanity thing to realize that it’s just a way to keep peace and respect for all. And for that, can Bristol Palin do the same thing without bashing Sasha and Malia Obama? For God’s sake, they are kids! Bristol needs to check herself badly of what her previous situation having a baby out of wedlock, while being a teenager! (***KIM Effect = Keep It Movin***) All of this or part of this needs to ponder. I thought that this country of America needs to remind itself about the part of Declaration of Independence when it says that “we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.” We see this every 4th of July, and sometimes in classes way back. But the more we read it, do we actually do this everyday? If that were to be the case, there wouldn’t be folks being racists, sextists, against the LGBT, or many other citizens who declare and take upon themselves truthfully as American citizens. No matter what they got in them.  Some of us probably have folks who are part of the LGBT groups. And they probably do everyday jobs to help their kids, families and community.  So what’s the fuss?

Frankly, the announcement itself I think wont probably last. We’ll go back by talking about the debates, the economy, jobs, health care, and many other things that America needs to understand of going to important issues. Sort of like if Tom Barrett wants to get Walker in a corner and boot him out by June 5th.  Obviously, this will be more talked about in various terms or examples. And yes it will be on the campaign trail. However since this is a “sensitive topic” and I’m going there as is, this NEEDS to be talked about without our heads being stuck in the sand for the next generation to ask “why this?”

Once again, do I have problem with this despite whatever? Absolutely NOT!  No reason to be.
