"Obama praises gay lobby’s strategy for winning over pro-marriage Americans"
President Obama told 500 young leaders in London on Saturday that gay activists have been so successful at convincing Americans to accept the redefinition of marriage by saying that same-sex “marriage” promoted "family values" and "stability and commitment and partnership."
At a town hall event, the president described the gay "marriage" movement as "the fastest set of changes in terms of the social movement" he has ever seen. He chalked this success up to the way LGBT activists framed the issue so as to win the minds and hearts of Americans.
“I thought there was a lot of smarts in reaching out and building and framing the issue in a way that could bring in people who initially didn’t agree with them,” Obama remarked.
The leader of the free world added that his two daughters, Malia, 17, and Sasha, 14, "had an impact on me" in changing from supporting civil unions to overt support for gay “marriage.”
"My notion was initially that labeling those partnerships as marriage wasn’t necessary as long as people were getting the same rights," the president said, "and it would disentangle them from some of the religious connotations that marriage had in the minds of a lot of Americans."
But then gay activists helped him see that only the full acceptance of gay "marriage" would be enough. "It was not simply about legal rights but about a sense of stigma," Obama said. "If you’re calling it something different it means that somehow it means less in the eyes of society."
