This is just too good to be true. From Dave Brody :
Barack Obama may be talking up his Christian faith like he's doing today in Ohio and trying his best to appeal to Evangelicals with a "new kind of politics", but he's got a problem. Many of his positions are the same liberal positions that have turned off Evangelicals for years.
Obama delivered another speech about faith Tuesday. He's done a few of these concerning his faith and how it shapes his public policy. But Sunday his campaign and the Democratic Party were handing out pro-gay rights flyers at the Pride Festival in St. Louis. How is that going to play in the heartland?
I'll tell you how, "not good". Check these out:
Note how they managed to work the rainbow flag into the Obama logo in place of the American flag.
But more important, check out the details. He's for overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, overruling the military on allowing open homosexuals by repealing "don't ask, don't tell", wants federal funding for drug needle exchanges, oposes constitutional amendments that define marriage as "one man and one woman", (which have passed in 30 states with an average 70% of the vote), and wants anti-discrimination laws that not only cover "sexual preference" but "gender identity".
Not enough for you? Take a look at the "Pride" section of Obama's website . "Change we can believe in" allright.
And keep in mind that overturning the Defense of Marriage Act means each state could then be forced to recognize a gay marriage performed in another state, in effect allowing one state to redefine marriage for the entire country.
And now his wife's out there saying basically the same thing :
Speaking to the Democratic National Committee's Gay and Lesbian Leadership Committee last Thursday in New York City, Michelle Obama said her husband supports "a world where federal laws don't discriminate against same-sex relationships, including equal treatment for any relationship recognized under state law."
"That is why he supports robust civil unions," she said. "That is why he has said the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide for themselves how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples -- whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union or a civil marriage."
Of course he's NOT in favor of them deciding whether or not they want to define marriage as it's been defined since before the birth of the country... And pay no mind that doing what she suggests puts people of faith, to say nothing of religious institutions at risk of lawsuits for continuing to run their lives and businesses in accordance with their faith.
This kind of stuff doesn't play in the heartland. He can make all the moves he wants towards evangelical voters  but, in the end, they vote on the basis of issues which are rooted in their faith. And the list outlined above - plus his pro-abortion stance - will trump anything else he can say or do.
