By Billy Hallowell. Fox News host Bill O’Reilly was less than impressed with President Barack Obama’s decision to light the White House up with rainbow colors on Friday evening following the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling, calling it an “in your face” move that alienated conservatives . . .
The commentator, who said that he was “a bit surprised” by the president’s “victory lap,” went on to share three Obama quotes illustrating the president’s past opposition to same-sex unions to show that, not long ago, Obama took a very different view on the matter.
“What I believe is that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Obama said in 2004.
In 2008, he invoked God, proclaiming in an interview with Pastor Rick Warren, “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. For me, as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.”
Flash forward to 2010 and Obama was still opposed to gay marriage, saying, “My baseline is a strong civil union that provides them the protections and the legal rights that married couples have.” (Read more from “Three Obama Quotes About ‘God’ and Traditional Marriage That Bill O’Reilly Just Used to Make a Point About the White House’s Rainbow Light Display” HERE)

By Michael Brown. Over and over again we are told that we have lost the culture wars and that it’s time for us to throw in the towel and capitulate, especially as the Supreme Court’s decision on redefining marriage is soon to be announced.
I’m here to announce that no matter what the Supreme Court says, no matter what the president says, no matter what society says, we are not bowing down to anyone other than the Lord Himself. And with God’s help, there’s not a shred of a possibility that we will compromise our convictions when it comes to the meaning of marriage.
Those who fear man more than God will compromise.
Those who have a misguided conception of compassion will compromise . . .
But those who love the Lord, who honor His Word, who truly care about what is best for society in the long term and who have already denied themselves and taken up their cross to follow Jesus—they will never compromise. (Read more from this story HERE)
