STATEMENT BY RALPH REED, CHAIRMAN OF FAITH & FREEDOM COALITION, ON OBAMA’S SUPPORT FOR SAME-SEX MARRIAGE
Four years ago 2008 Barack Obama promised if elected not to raise taxes on those making less than $250,000, pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term—and made clear his support for traditional marriage. All those promises are now broken. At a time of high unemployment and severe economic distress, President Obama chose the week he launched his re-election campaign to flip-flop on same-sex marriage. Combined with his administration’s opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act, it reveals a president who is tone-deaf and out-of-touch with the time-honored values of millions of Americans. This is an unanticipated gift to the Romney campaign. It is certain to fuel a record turnout of voters of faith to the polls this November.
