Lennon and McCartney, 1965
Boy, what a difference a day makes. Only a day ago, our President was assuring our country that while he, like the Catholic Church, affirms the rights and equality of gay individuals in all conceivable respects, he doesn't support gay marriage.
Well, that's ancient history. Back when the pyramids were built, Stonehenge, the Mayan temples. Because today, our President has assured us that he actually supports gay marriage. Good to know.
The difference I see? Many in the GOP, and conservatives in general, are skeptical about Mitt Romney's convictions, even though these flips and flops suggest he is more conservative now than ever. Why? Because both logic and common sense suggests that a person who changes based on the way the wind is blowing can easily change anything based on the way the wind is blowing. This is big news that should reveal much if we look at how the Left reacts to Obama's whiplash-inducing change of heart. After all, we're not talking about a long agonizing process. We're talking about being told that convictions were one thing a day or two ago, and another today.
And how are those on the Left reacting? Well, so far, based on what I've seen and heard, they are dancing in the streets. Does it matter that this has all the aroma of a cheap political ploy, either orchestrated or as a result of pressure from White House underlings? Apparently not. The power of the progressive movement is that yesterday's universal moral truth is today's archaic thinking that all hip, enlightened people obviously reject. Truth is merely that which I can get people to affirm so that I can have whatever I want now.
It isn't easy having a society based on the latest whims and fancies. But when everyone, including a growing number of representatives of a 2000 year old faith, seem to be catching the waves, it's hard to argue against.
