Obama administration reveals plans to advance gay agenda
CNA ^ | November 23, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama

Washington DC, Nov 23, 2008 / 07:48 pm (CNA).- Citing what they call America’s “promise of equality,” the Obama administration plans to push for homosexual rights by including protections of sexual orientation, “gender identity” and “gender expression” as civil rights. His office proposes expanding hate crimes statues and the adoption rights of homosexuals while supporting full civil unions for “LGBT couples” to give them “legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples.”

The proposals are announced under the Civil Rights section of their agenda presented at Change.gov, the web site of the Obama campaign’s self-described “Office of the President-elect.”

A section titled “Support for the LGBT Community” outlines the agenda for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered activists and quotes remarks Obama made on June 1, 2007.

“While we have come a long way since the Stonewall riots in 1969, we still have a lot of work to do,” Obama said, referring to riots which followed a police raid on a New York City gay bar.

“Too often, the issue of LGBT rights is exploited by those seeking to divide us. But at its core, this issue is about who we are as Americans. It's about whether this nation is going to live up to its founding promise of equality by treating all its citizens with dignity and respect."

According to the web site, President-elect Obama and vice-president-elect Joe Biden will support expand crimes legislation such as the Matthew Shepard Act. They also back the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which they claim will “prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.”

“While an increasing number of employers have extended benefits to their employees' domestic partners, discrimination based on sexual orientation in the workplace occurs with no federal legal remedy,” the web site states, referring to similar legislation sponsored by Obama in the Illinois state legislature.

Regarding civil unions and same-sex marriage, the site says “Barack Obama supports full civil unions that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples.”

Advocating the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, the agenda plans to “enact legislation that would ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex couples in civil unions and other legally-recognized unions.”

The site also references Obama’s Senate vote against the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2006 which, in the site’s words, “would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and prevented judicial extension of marriage-like rights to same-sex or other unmarried couples.”

On the subject of adoption rights, the Change.gov web site states: “Barack Obama believes that we must ensure adoption rights for all couples and individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation. He thinks that a child will benefit from a healthy and loving home, whether the parents are gay or not.”

The Obama agenda further advocates the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell” policy barring open homosexuals from serving in the military.

Its AIDS prevention policies also pledge to enact a “comprehensive” national strategy including contraceptive sex education and “combating infection within our prison population through education and contraception.”

It remains to be seen/proven that a two-gay-home can be healthy.

I want to see Obama begin with the black church and get the leaders to embrace letting black babies be adopted by white gays then.

Since many kids waiting for adoption are black and many gays wanting children to indoctrinate are well off whites..

I strongly believe that the conservatives in congress/senate should join with the liberals to get the most liberal possible candidates affirmed to run the Dept. of Education and HHS.

I want the liberals to turn the water up to boil so that maybe the sheeple will wake up.

If the Dept. of Education starts issuing edicts that kindergarteners need to be exposed to gay lifestyles then it will begin the counter-revolution that we so dearly need.

They may step over THE line and require that homeschoolers teach the homosexual agenda, or outlaw homeschooling altogether.

Like I said, that is THE line that they had better not cross.

From what I have seen, most homosexuals are fruitcakes, that is they really have emotional problems. Most are just not that happy.

For some reason. This self-annointed Chief Executive of "The Office of President-Elect" had three meetings with the homosexual Episcopal Bishop, Vicki Gene Robinson.

Something keeps telling me to watch how churches and charities who do not cater to homosexuals will lose their tax-exempt status and their members will also lose their charitable deductions to those churches.

And the Christian religion as we know it will cease to exist except in the hearts and minds and living rooms of believers.

Only if your mind is so open your brain fell out. It's NEVER healthy to drop innocent kids in the middle of a homosexual liaison.

They won’t do it.

They would start something that would have massive ramifications for them in 2010 elections for Congress. It’s one thing to ram homo’s down everyone’s throat in terms of TV programming, the court’s, and in employment law.

You start ramming the homo agenda down the throat of Sunday morning services - a lot of those previously purple states in the interior of the country will start going RED in a big hurry.

You are deliberately messing with people’s spiritual lives when you do that, and to what gain on the left?

I dunno. Lots of very upset folks in a number of congregations I'm familiar with, across the age spectrum. I suspect Catholics are setting up for a long-needed purge. A serious effort to redirect money into social advocacy is coming. And a whole lot of prayer is going up about our political situation.

This is part of why I think they’re going to over-reach and it will cost them in 2010. The libs will reflexively go too far, because they’ve proven themselves to be impulsive by nature. They can’t resist.

The libs should have gotten spanked in 2006 and 2008, Lord knows they deserved it. I am afraid we are reaching the point where they will be beyond restraint.

Citing what they call America’s “promise of equality,”...

Homosexuals aren't equal or comparable to normal human beings and are an unacceptable species of pervert.

They may wash their hands and they may brush their teeth after rimming their 'partner', and they may wash off their equipment after shoving it up someone's anus, but they are an anathema to maintaining a viable functioning society.

I have read that Obomba plans to also include transsexuals in his retinue along with normal everyday queers.

What a freaking mess that has been concocted by this fairy prince who can't even produce a viable birth certificate and his sycophantic DemocRAT pansies in the corrupt and evil Congress!

Well, I don't know about your concept of the "Christian religion" but I can assure you that the Catholic Church has survived 2000 years of persecution that continues to this day. In fact, today in Nagasaki Japan, they beatified 188 martyrs to the faith.

Sanguis Martyrum.... (Vatican beatifies Japanese Martyrs in Nagasaki)

No one knows for sure just how many christians were martyred in the first century ... or the 2nd or the 3rd. But these christians stood strong and brave against the attacks, actually singing hymns as the lions entered the Colosseum and even when these brave souls were turned into human torched to illuminate the stadium at dusk. Nothing has changed since then. Catholic martyrs continue to shed their blood for Christ and will do so until He returns.

Description: -None-
Body: 7 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved

Given that the federal Constitution says nothing about homosexuality, Obama and Congress have no power to regulate homosexuality issues. This is evidenced by the 10th Amendment.
10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
10th A. protected state powers to regulate homosexuality issues are evidenced by ongoing gay marriage issues in various states. The feds need to quit usurping 10th A. protected state powers as they've wrongly been doing since the time of constitutional flunky FDR.

It will be a cold day in hell before I ever teach my children that homosexuality, abortion or masturbation is acceptable. The liberals can keep their sexually perverted education manual, I’ll teach my own(according to the pure word of the Lord).

Here’s the way it is. GOD created a beautiful world. He said, “It is good.” Then of man and woman (Adam and Chava) He said, “It is VERY good.”

Satan and his fallen angels witnessed this. So Satan had to come up with a plan to destroy what God had made. How better than to take the perfect union of Man and Woman, Adam and Chava, and defile it?

And he did. And what God made Very Good, Satan turned upside down.
