President Obama has just become the first sitting President of the United States to appear on the cover of an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) publication. His photograph recently filled
the cover of OUT magazine alongside the caption “Our President: Ally. Hero. Icon.”
President Obama also provided an interview for the magazine, in which he made several statements that helped highlight the change that has occurred in the Western culture’s thinking over the past few decades. He stated, “There had been a remarkable attitude shift — in hearts and minds — across America. The [Supreme Court] ruling [legalizing gay marriage] reflected that. It reflected our values as a nation founded on the principle that we are all created equal.” Now, this is ironic. Obama clearly believes in evolution
. He even called the supposed human ancestor “Lucy
” (really just an extinct ape variety) “our oldest ancestor” and said that “all the people of the world are part of the same human family, the same chain” because of our evolutionary connection! So first he says that we are all equal because we all evolved from a common ancestor, but now he says we’re all equal because we were created that way, which is a biblical principle. You really can’t have it both ways—did we evolve from a common ancestor or were we created to be equal? But President Obama is often inconsistent in his worldview!
