Obama On the Mount: Marriage Obama Style

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead, expose them.

——–Eph.5 :11

 

News update:

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told a crowd at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, Sunday that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions. He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him “less Christian.”

“I don’t think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state,” said Obama. “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.” ((Hear audio from WTAP-TV)) St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans condemns homosexual acts as unnatural and sinful.

Pray for me, please. I am preparing for a series of TV tapings, one for a Florida channel that will air Easter weekend. The topic is “Why Florida Needs a Marriage Amendment.”

Organizers in Florida gathered the requisite signatures to get the Marriage initiative on the ballot for November. Now, Floridians must be persuaded to pull the lever for Marriage as the “legal union of one man and one woman.” Who would have believed this 15 years ago? Soon we’ll need an amendment to define day as the hours when the sun is up and there is natural light.

This is a preemptive strike against future presidents whose idea of marriage is “fluid.” Barack Obama is in the fluid camp.

ON February 28th Obama sent a 700 plus word letter to the gay lobby with his pledge to use the “bully pulpit” to shove states into passing same-sex union bills. His tone is self-congratulatory–a “see how much I have done for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community,” tone.

Obama has underscored his desire to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the 1996 law permitting states to refuse recognition of, say, Massachusetttes’ law on same-sex “marriages.” DOMA also insulates marriage at the federal level–throwing the question of same-sex unions back to the states. For this reason, the homosexual lobby has made the repeal of DOMA their top priority–thus, it is no wonder Obama pandered to the gay lobby by promising to work for the repeal of DOMA. (For the record, so has Hillary.) Obama declared DOMA to be discriminatory.

To this point, 40 states have some form of legal defense against same-sex “marriage,” and 27 states have gone to the trouble to pass amendments for their state constitutions to forestall the homosexual lobby. If DOMA is repealed, American taxpayers will be forced to fund the homosexual lobby’s version of “marriage.”

king-and-king.jpgBut that is not all. During a Democratic debate in September Obama admitted he favors reading the homosexual story, King and King to second graders. The book is a primer for “gay marriage.” One review gushes “this is a chance to see the Cinderella story in a new light.” Nope–a new darkness.

Another reviewer, “This is a charming book that introduces children to the possibility that little kings can do whatever they please – and there’s certainly no need to please Mother! Love rears its head in many unusual places, and it’s about time an alternative gets some attention. Why does a prince always have to settle down with a princess? We always love it when a price falls for a peasant girl instead, so why not a peasant boy (or another prince)?

Few Americans realize that there is a mini-boom in homosexual children’s literature. It is frightening to know that your Pre-K child may be read One Dad, Two Dads, Blue Dad , Brown Dad –a book revered by “LBGT families.”

Reality check: Many Americans have family members or colleagues who are homosexual. We do not want them harmed by thoughtless uncharitable attitudes. In no case can we discriminate against a homosexual person’s fundamental rights. Many work hard to be a whole person–not someone defined by sexual proclivity.

It is also the case that there is no “right” to redefine basic human truths.

The truth is marriage predates society and governments. Government lacks the power to re-order marriage. A society might try to redefine marriage, but it may as well redefine sunrise and sunset–but the sun will still rise bringing light, even if government defines that as “dark.”

The truth is that marriage benefits the whole of society. Therefore a wise society and an effective government … MORE (human genome, polygamy)

  1. it’s not charming.

    what’s next? “i want to marry a dolphin. and who are you to say that is less valid than a same species marriage?”

    seems to me barry lost sight of the order of nature. i mean, it should be common sense what is the proper foundation for civilization.

    interesting blog. i’ll be back!

  2. It is extremely important for us all to
    realize the very basis of our lives depends upon the defense of DOMA – and we must support to widen its passage in all states! How can we PRESUME to “re-legislate” God’s foundation for what He “defines” as marriage? This is truely a basic order of nature and the very fabric of our civilization. Stop a moment and just
    think of what this all really means!!!
