Sunday, Dec. 14, 2008 | What does this mean, that a vote for President-elect Barack Obama was a vote “in the opposite direction” than voting for Proposition 8? The President-elect and his running mate are both on record as opposing gay marriage, and neither has clearly committed to overturning former President Bill Clinton’s Defense of Marriage Act. Each supports civil unions, which continue unaffected by Proposition 8. I hear frequent musings that President-elect Obama has been dishonest about his views, for the purpose of getting elected. It would, indeed, be a significant reversal of his position. It is disappointing to see a writer for voiceofsandiego.org blatantly assume that the next president has deceived the American people.
