Here is Obama on CNN on gay marriage:
"I believe that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union." - Obama 10/08
Here is Miss California's comment:
"We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."
Why is she being bashed for her belief, but no one comments on President Obama same belief?

You stole my question, thief. If you're going to quote me word for word, at least give me credit ROFL http://www.cafemom.com/answers/183917/So_why_did_you_vote_for_him
And near as I can tell is, the answer lies somewhere in people speaking without thinking.

Maybe because Obama is prepared to not allow his personal spiritual convictions to effect how the rights of others are respected in this country? Also, when you qualify your opinion with a statement such as "No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised" it waters down both the appearance of your confidence in your own statement & the validity of your view since your chalking it up to the values of your parents rather than your on personal beliefs & outlook. I see the statements as different in those regards.

Ummm, maybe because she said in her county it should be so she is kinda promoting that same sex marriage should be banned.
She said what she feels should be...He said what he feels it IS but never said that is actually what it SHOULD be.
IDK Just speculation on my part.
