Gay America Prepares To Party at Obama Inauguration...
Fox News ^ | Jan 14th, 2009

Posted on 01/14/2009 5:07:56 PM PST by TaraP

Unprecedented inaugural celebrations for President-elect Barack Obama by gay activist groups, social organizations and ordinary citizens suggests many view Obama's election as a signal of a forthcoming sea change for the gay rights movement in America.

The Rev. Gene Robinson, a gay Episcopal bishop, will say a prayer at an inaugural event at the Lincoln Monument on Sunday; a gay and lesbian marching band will take its place in the official presidential parade; and a slew of gay parties and inaugural balls will be held in the nation's capital before and after Obama takes the oath of office.

But the gay-themed events have some conservative critics expressing concerns that while the celebration may be gay-friendly, it won't be family-friendly.

Jennifer Giroux, founder and president of Women Influencing the Nation, a group that focuses on restoring traditional family values, said, “I think (the) inauguration should be kept away from that. Christians may love the individual, but they are offended by the gay lifestyle. It’s unhealthy — spiritually, emotionally and physically.

If you want to see approval ratings in the single digits, he needs to do this.

Personally, I’ll enjoy it if the inaugural thing down Pennsylvania Ave. turns into a gay pride parade. Will knock O’s approval rating down a good 15 points on his first day (assuming the networks don’t censor it all out).

THEY SURE DID...

A lot of comparisons have been drawn between ancient Rome and modern America.

Dr. Carle Zimmerman in 1947 wrote a book called Family and Civilization. He studies the decline of several civilizations and empires. He discovered eight patterns of domestic behavior that signaled the decline of a civilization:

1. The breakdown of marriage and rise of divorce.

2. The loss of the traditional meaning of the marriage ceremony.

3. The rise of Feminism.

4. Increased public disrespect for parents and authority in general.

5. Acceleration of juvenile delinquency, promiscuity and rebellion.

6. Refusal of people with traditional marriages to accept their family responsibilities.

7. A growing desire for and acceptance of adultery.

8. Increasing interest in and spread of sexual perversions (homosexuality) and sex-related crimes.

See any parallels in modern America? Maybe we should be listening to Rep. Kern a little more carefully.

Every historian – even modern homosexual revisionists – admit that Rome was riddled with homosexuals. Hadrian, one of the best emperors, traveled the empire with a youthful lover, Antinous. Caligula and Nero were accused of having sex with just about anyone or anything.

The funny thing is Obama is against gay marriage and a big reason Prop 8 passed in California was all the blacks who voted against it.

My friend is working on some of the descriptions of the anti christ and how it fits with Obama. It is scary how easily you can fit it for him.

I don’t believe Obama is agaisnt Gay Marraige, he just said that to appease many Christians when he was in Rick Warren’s Church.....

He said whatever he had to in getting himself elected.....

No doubt he will signal in the Antichrist, as he ruins this country....

I wonder is the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be marching in the Inaugural Parade. You all know them......they are the obscene gay guys dressed as nuns every year in the SF Gay Pride Parade. What an embarrassment this new President already is.

I don’t know; during the campaign he knew enough to not touch the issue with a ten foot pole. While I’m sure his administration will be packed full of people who would love to expand gay rights; he’s also smart enough to know it’s a loser of an issue.

Sad the depths to which our country has sunk. The Left will completely destroy us if we let them. Remember, to Leftists we are the bad guys.

You're kidding, right? The only way he gets to a single digit approval rating is to cut corporate tax rates to 10% (which, BTW, would drive the recovery).

I was wondering if this was going on all over the world? Are family values deteriorating worldwide? Does any nation even have conservative values? And—is child sacrifice the final straw.

Lovely. Lots of drunk gays barebacking and spreading their diseases. We'll all get to pay for their extended medical treatments as they consume exorbitantly expensive "cocktails" to stay alive and spread "the love" to other unsuspecting gays.

Obama will get rid of "Don't asthk, don't tell". That should drop the voluntary enlistment rates...unless the economy is so bad that it is tolerated just to have any employment at all.

What's with people posting pervy man-kissing pics? That only further lowers standards of decency.

As for the news source: According to LifeSite­News.com (Sept. 8 [2006]), Fox News channel donated $10,000 to the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA).

When Klintoon left the WH in 2000, Freepers recommended the entire building be steamed, fumigated and sterilized.

Obama one-ups the Clintons, the entire city will need it this time.
