Franklin Graham: Obama Has "Shaken His Fist" At God

Evangelist Franklin Graham (left) presented the cosmic implications of President Obama's support for same-sex marriage:

While the move to pass amendments defining marriage is relatively new, the definition of marriage is 8,000 years old and was defined not by man, but by God Himself. In changing his position from that of senator/candidate Obama, President Obama has, in my view, shaken his fist at the same God who created and defined marriage. It grieves me that our president would now affirm same-sex marriage, though I believe it grieves God even more.

Right Wing Watch has more on fundamentalist hysteria regarding Obama's stance, along with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins' statement that marriage equality brings "pain and heartache" as "all of society suffers."
