When Barack Obama made his unsurprising announcement today that he has finally evolved far enough to endorse homosexual marriage, ironically an evolutionary dead end, he made two other interesting statements.
First, he attributes his evolution to his Christian faith. This is sort of odd, speaking as a Trinitarian Christian, because it puts Christ in the position of disavowing himself. This is not surprising. Anyone who learned Christian theology from Jeremiah Wright is bound to have imbibed a substantial number of heresies.
The most surprising statement was this:
[W]hen I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf...
Really. Our troops are fighting on his behalf? I had always imagined they were fighting on behalf of the nation.
