Obama and Supreme Court Justices

I'll be the first to admit that McCain isn't exactly a bucket of peaches. But what has me scared spitless is the blind adoration of so many toward Obama when things like his questionable presidential eligibility and his racist, socialist, and terrorist connections are being completely ignored. This is in large part due to the fact that one group that is stricken with said blind adoration is the media! I'm not saying that Obama is a terrorist or that he isn't a citizen (he could easily clarify this problem by producing the legitimate birth certificate he claims he has but won't release) or that he is a socialist (though his wife certainly is). The problem is that he has claimed amicable relations with people who are terrorists or racist- and people like me are simply raising alarms. I am alarmed!

You know, I think a lot of my political opinions are being influenced right now by the whole same-sex marriage issue. I know that Obama and Biden have said they are also pro traditional marriage, but that's easy to say when, after elected, they will likely have the opportunity to appoint liberal supreme court justices who could then attempt to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act which decided that
  1. No state (or other political subdivision within the United States) need treat a relationship between persons of the same sex as a marriage, even if the relationship is considered a marriage in another state.
  2. The Federal Government may not treat same-sex relationships as marriages for any purpose, even if concluded or recognized by one of the states
I am afraid for the moral issues under Obama, namely life, same-sex marriage and subsequently religious liberties. In his own words at a Planned Parenthood conference in DC on July 17, 2007, Obama conveniently lumped abortion and same-sex marriage into the same playing field as age and disability and race in order to gain sympathy: "We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old. And that's the criteria by which I'm going to be selecting my judges."

You may not be afraid, but I am terrified.
