Al Qaeda On Gay Marriage: Terrorist Group Slams Obama's 'Evolution' On Same Sex Marriage

Mother Jones on Friday posted Inspire's graphic, which is titled "The Nation Standing On 'No Values.'" The graphic cites a Gallup poll that says half of American adults are in favor of gay marriage. A photo of Obama is flanked by a caption that reads, "My stance is still evolving ... I think same sex couples should able to get married."

(Note: This caption consists of quotes from two separate interviews. Furthermore, Obama never actually said, "My stance is still evolving." What he said, on Dec. 22, 2010, was "My feelings about [same-sex marriage] are constantly evolving. I struggle with this.")

The graphic also calls former U.S. Congressman Barney Frank, who is openly gay, a "symbol of the American dream." There's an altered photo of Frank and his husband from their wedding next to the words "Just married," which are printed in a creepy, blood-spattered font.

According to ABC News, Inspire was founded by American-born Muslim jihadists Anwar al Awlaki and Samir Khan, two men who were influential members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula before they were killed in a U.S. drone strike in September 2011. Khan, 25 at the time of his death, was the magazine's editor, according to the New York Times.

Inspire is available in English and in Arabic online. A past issue has featured tips on how to make homemade bombs; the current issue includes articles titled "Torching Parked Vehicles" and "Causing Road Accidents."
