You cannot help but question the worldview of the current administration in Sodom on the Potomac.
It seems that the man now sitting in the White House as president has decided that it is his sworn duty to uphold the concept of sodomite marriage. But some in his administration beat him to the punch. His Vice-President, Joe Biden, that famous silver-tongued orator, and his Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan both endorsed sodomite marriage earlier in the week, and so Mr. Obama, it would seem, figured he had better get on this galloping bandwagon before it was too late and he could reap no political benefits from it. And the perverse crowd in Hollyweird will love him for it. Lots of big money political donations there.
I wonder if anyone in this country with their kids in public schools is comforted by the fact that their Secretary of Education has just endorsed sexual perversion. From Obama you expect as much. He realizes that overturning the sexual morality of this country, which is based upon Scripture, will do irreparable damage to the culture, which is what he is all about anyway. Those who can’t grasp this fact are probably not trying too hard.
Obama claimed his decision on this question had “evolved.” Horseradish! Marxists, of which he is one, have no problem whatever tearing down cultures through the use and promotion of sexual perversion. The resulting confusion makes it easier for them to assume control.
The president audaciously observed that his Christian faith in the Golden Rule was what led him to his decision. He paraphrased it as “Treat others the way you would want to be treated.” I have no argument with that, but treating others the way you want to be treated does not include endorsing or seeking to legitimize their perversions. Obama seems to think it does.
According to http://www.newsmax.com “New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who heads the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said Obama’s remarks ‘undermine the institution of marriage, the very cornerstone of our society. The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better.’” Cardinal Dolan is right. But the electorate of this country saw fit to put a Marxist in the White House and this is the price all of us are paying.
Rev. Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, and a Council of Foreign Relations member as well, said that he was both “saddened and mystified” by Obama’s decision. And he noted: “When the president comes out in favor of something it has an impact, and that saddens me because I think embracing same-sex marriage would be a terrible mistake for the country.” He’s correct here, but later on he commented that maybe the president was simply taking a stand based on his beliefs and that “It may be a profile in courage.” Did you catch that? Endorsing sexual perversion could be a “profile in courage” for Obama. Dr. Land’s Council on Foreign Relations membership is showing through.
Other church reaction I have read about up to this point has been rather tepid. But, then, the church in this country today, with some exceptions, seems rather tepid.
Surprisingly, Billy Graham’s son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, made an accurate statement. He said: “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…” Graham is right. Obama has shaken his fist at God and, ultimately, unless he repents, God will require the price that is paid for this rebellion. As the Scripture says “God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows that will he also reap.”
The Scriptures state in Leviticus 18:22 that: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with woman-kind: it is abomination.” And in the New Testament, Romans 1:26-28 states: “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient:” So it would seem that the Holy Scriptures take a rather dim view of Mr. Obama’s “evolving” position on sodomy.
But don’t expect that to deter him. He and those behind his throne have an agenda they intend to force on the American people and part of that agenda is the destruction of any remaining Christian culture in this country. Personally, I’d like to see a little more reaction from the church on this, but I’m not holding my breath.
