Barack Obama proclaims June as LGBT rights month

Here’s the proclamation.

Excerpt:

Much work remains to fulfill our Nation’s promise of equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.  That is why we must give committed gay couples the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple, and repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.  We must protect the rights of LGBT families by securing their adoption rights, ending employment discrimination against LGBT Americans, and ensuring Federal employees receive equal benefits.  We must create safer schools so all our children may learn in a supportive environment.  I am also committed to ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” so patriotic LGBT Americans can serve openly in our military, and I am working with the Congress and our military leadership to accomplish that goal.

And of course there is the bill he signed criminalizing speech critical of homosexuality.

And it’s not just gay rights that he is focused on, it’s abortion. If that link doesn’t prove that he is the most pro-abortion president ever to hold the office, then nothing will. Whether intentionally or not, everyone who voted for Obama voted against the rights of the unborn and against the norm of traditional marriage, where children are raised by a mother and a father.

Remember, we Christians helped to elect Obama:

Because we thought that just wars to deter terrorists were expensive, and that we should have more of our neighbor’s money for bailing out Wall Street bankers, unions and failing public schools.

It’s sometimes funny to remember the days when Bush was proclaiming Sanctity of Human Life day. But then he was the most pro-life president ever, and solid on traditional marriage, too.

  1. And in all of this it’s children who have to suffer so that adults may have what they want. Children are denied the right to life at their most vulnerable stage. Then, if they are fortunate enough to be spared abortion, they are brought up in a world where something as fundamental as marriage is redefined and gender can mean anything you want it to. Children are seen either as a nuisance to be “terminated” or as an accessory one is entitled to. Western culture is increasingly brazen in its selfishness.

  2. I find it amazing that this man ran on the idea that he was against gay marriage, and now is coming out (pun intended) for marriage rights for gays.

    Liar liar pants on fire.

    1. Yeah, and the thing is that there are some Christians who think that wealth redistribution by government and pacificism are compatible with Christianity. I know a ton of socially conservative “Christians” who think that leftist economics and leftist foreign policy are compatible with Christianity. They don’t want to read to inform themselves.

      1. Good point. Sadly, those ignorant in the Word do not realize that Christ, nor God, never advocated forced giving or charitable donations. It was always to be the individuals choice.

      2. Yeah but there is a difference between showing why Christians shouldn’t be in favour of wealth redistribution and pacifism, but then jumping to extreme free market economics, and extreme interventionism. Surely there’s got to be a balance, no?

        1. Well, I don’t think so, but maybe. I would like to replace taxes with chairty, for example, and that could happen with the right incentives. I want people to take care of the people next to them freely. Not to rely on taxing the rich and having a secular government get the credit.

          1. I would love people to give to charity instead of having to be taxed in order to be able to feed the poorest, and help those looking for jobs who are temporarily unemployed.

            However, as far as I know, human beings have a sinful nature and are extremely narcissistic. We would much rather satisfy our own desires than help others out- we are depraved creatures. We can only please God through his Holy Spirit working in us and helping us be more like Christ.

            In the same way that the left doesn’t take into account the sinful nature of human government, the extreme right loses sight of how sinful human beings will not produce the optimal amount of welfare through charity. So there needs to be a balance between the two.

          2. Yeah well it shouldn’t. I think abortion should be abolished. All I’m saying is that there needs to be a fiscal balance between two extremes; it’s not an either/or.

            Just as we have to have a police force and justice system in place because humans can’t be trusted to be completely free because of our sinful nature, so we also need a small amount of welfare in place because people naturally will not provide for the poorest in society, and for temporary unemployment payments. Libertarians have too much of an optimistic view of human nature.
