Obama: The Hate-Murder of Matthew Shepphard Was Super-Important on My Evolution on the Gay Marriage Issue

Really?

Let's check that timeline, courtesy of @gpollowitz.

1996: In a questionnaire, Obama states that he supports same-sex marriage

1998: Matthew Sheppard is murdered in a crime believed to be motivated by anti-homosexual hatred.

2004: Obama announces that he now supports a traditional definition of marriage and does not support same-sex marriage.

So... if I have this right... Matthew Sheppard's murder caused him to reevaluate his previous unconditional support for the gay marriage agenda, and oppose it?

By the way, pretty much nobody except Andrew Sullivan was yammering about gay marriage in 1996. So Obama was seriously, seriously way the hell out in front of the liberal agenda in 1996.

Then, Matthew Sheppard is murdered... which apparently spurs a reevaluation of his position and "evolves" him into the more conservative stance.

Okay.

I enjoy being lied to. It's fun. It fills my head with sense of whimsy and adventure, where anything can happen and probably will!!!!

Yay, deceit!!!!
