Posted on June 3, 2009. Filed under: News of the Day, Political Issues |

On Monday President Barack Obama   proclaimed June to be Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgendered Pride Month. The President  took great pride in mentioning that he is the first US President to appoint openly gay or lesbian people to positions requiring Senate approval and that he has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. Here is the text, read it and weep for your country:

For Immediate Release                                     June 1, 2009

LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009
– – – – – – –
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION
Forty years ago, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted police harassment that had become all too common for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT rights movement in America was born. During LGBT Pride Month, we commemorate the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.

LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of American society. There are many well-respected LGBT leaders in all professional fields, including the arts and business communities. LGBT Americans also mobilized the Nation to respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and have played a vital role in broadening this country’s response to the HIV pandemic.

Due in no small part to the determination and dedication of the LGBT rights movement, more LGBT Americans are living their lives openly today than ever before. I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration. These individuals embody the best qualities we seek in public servants, and across my Administration — in both the White House and the Federal agencies — openly LGBT employees are doing their jobs with distinction and professionalism.

The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress, but there is more work to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect.

My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. These measures include enhancing hate crimes laws, supporting civil unions and Federal rights for LGBT couples, outlawing discrimination in the workplace, ensuring adoption rights, and ending the existing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security. We must also commit ourselves to fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic by both reducing the number of HIV infections and providing care and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS across the United States.

These issues affect not only the LGBT community, but also our entire Nation. As long as the promise of equality for all remains unfulfilled, all Americans are affected. If we can work together to advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every American will benefit. During LGBT Pride Month, I call upon the LGBT community, the Congress, and the American people to work together to promote equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.

BARACK OBAMA

**********************

Let me point out some of the more obvious things that are wrong here. Why should we as a country have a LGBT Pride month? Why celebrate or take pride in that which God says is an abomination? There is not one positive mention of homosexuality, or cross dressing in the Bible, only condemnation. For a nation to call good that which God calls evil is to invite the wrath of God. Pres. Obama is praising men for their behavior of having anal sex with other men. He is praising women for having sex with other women. He is praising bi-sexuals for having sex with whoever however. And he is praising those men who dress like women and women who masquerade as men and those who have sex change operations. There is nothing praiseworthy about any of this.

Do not misunderstand me, I am not saying that it is right to harm gays, etc. Any fool who goes around trying to harm people because they are gay or whatever needs to be arrested. But, neither should I as an employer be forced to hire somebody with questionable morals whether it be homosexuality or a serial adulterer, or a drunkard or someone who uses drugs. I have known some gay people who were quite bright and hard working and would do a good job anywhere. I think most statistics will tell you that the gay population is on the average earning more money than straights, meaning they are smart and hard working. If a company wants to hire them, fine, if another company doesn’t want to hire them, that is fine too.

This is fundamentally different from the racial question of civil rights. skin color is meaningless to me, it is what is in a person’s heart, mind,  soul and their actions that matters. For the LGBT community to hijack the civil rights issue is a disgrace. Racism is a sin just like practicing homosexual behavior is a sin. Now if I was running a business, I might go ahead and hire a gay person if they were otherwise qualified for the job, but if I knew someone was a flaming racist, I think I would not hire them.

Most gays these days say that they were born that way. They may be right, there may be something in the genetic code that tilts one that way. But that does not mean the behavior should be practiced. It is still immoral. But what do the LGBT people say about those who are Bi? Are they born with a Bi gene? If GAys should marry what about Bis? Should we allow Triads for Bis?

The only thing that will help the LGBT people is if they repent of sin, and follow Jesus. Does that mean they stop being gay? In some cases maybe, but likely not in most cases. It does mean that they determine to die to self, put away sin, and live a godly life like we are all supposed to do. Will some lapse and fall into sin again? Certainly. I fall into my sins on a regular basis. But I get up, repent, and try again. We Christians are not perfect. We are justified but remain sinners. Yet we fight sin and resolve to stay away from it, and we grow in grace as we lay aside that which ensnares us.

Is any of this easy? Nope. It is costly. Those who may be born gay have a much heavier burden to bear than most of us.

What about the legalities? A society has the right to forbid and regulate certain aspects of our sexual lives and condone and bless others. An age of consent law is a good law, but that has varied over time. My aunt was married at 15 to a man quite a bit older. Today that is prohibited. Western Civilization in the Christian era has pretty much outlawed bigamy or polygamy. Protitution has been legalized at times, and prosecuted at others, ignored as often as not. For me personally, I would prefer things like homosexual behavior to not be legal, but neither do I trust the government much when it comes to regulating what adults do in their bedrooms. My distrust of the State exceeds my aversion to homosexual behavior. But I FOR SURE do not want my government, especially our DEAR LEADER OBAMA issuing proclamations in favor of that which is immoral.

Amerika, you got what you voted for. We have a DEAR LEADER who is proud of homosexuality, who is a MARXIST, who loves the dictators of the world, who is a secret muslim, who hates Israel, and hates capitalism, who will release terrorists, and will fail to deal properly with North Korea and Iran as they get nukes.

God save the United States.
