Maggie Gallagher, chairman of the board of the National Organization for Marriage, shared the following at National Review Online. She writes that this is Governor Palin's response to a question she asked her about President Obama's decision not to support the Defense of Marriage Act:
I have always believed that marriage is between one man and one woman. Like the majority of Americans, I support the Defense of Marriage Act and find it appalling that the Obama administration decided not to defend this federal law which was enacted with broad bipartisan support and signed into law by a Democrat president. It’s appalling, but not surprising that the President has flip-flopped on yet another issue from his stated position as a candidate to a seemingly opposite position once he was elected.
Yes, Governor Palin has always defended the God-ordained institution of marriage between one male and one female. Obama, when running for POTUS, stated that he had the same view of marriage. I was never confident that he was actually being honest, and actions speak louder than words; his decision not to support DOMA is screaming. Has he flip-flopped, as Governor Palin stated, or was he being disingenuous in his earlier statements?
I know one thing: Governor Palin's respect for the sanctity of marriage remains the same. Below, she and Joe Biden addressed this during the vice-presidential debate:
If candidate Biden had been speaking sincerely on behalf of candidate Obama and himself, and if candidate Obama was personally sincere when he voiced respect for traditional marriage, why has President Obama refused to support this federal law? Does make you wonder, doesn't it?
