EDITORIAL: Homosexuals disappointed again
The Washington Times ^ | February 4, 2010 | Editorial

Posted on 02/03/2010 8:23:35 PM PST by Abakumov

Homosexuals waiting to serve openly in the armed forces will have to keep waiting. President Obama is effectively putting this issue to bed until after the November elections....

Mr. Obama's supporters among the homosexual activist community have been increasingly restive over his failure to address the issue. A liberal Democratic president with huge margins in both houses should be able to deliver on such an important election promise, but Mr. Obama lacks stamina even on issues he says he cares about passionately. In order to claim some forward movement, the administration is reportedly constructing a more lenient enforcement framework, but this had already been the practice under George W. Bush's administration, during which gay discharges dropped more than 50 percent.

I suppose the fag contingent would rather Obama have brought on a Republican stampede in November.

LOL. Thanks for the laugh.

MSNBC is reporting on this like it will be passed by congress tomorrow. They got all their generals saying homos should be able to openly look for sexual partners in the military and will make us stronger. Such crap!

Unfortunate headline, eh?

And is it considered disrespectful to refer to the current President of the United States as "Mr. Obama" not just once, but *5* times in an article???

Guess this is true!!!

Gates maybe smarter than we think. The brass knew they have a idiot Marxist as CIC for the next 2 years so they have to come up with ways to fool the ZerO. That “1 year to make a panel to study the effects of homosexuals for transition” was a good one.

Hm, did somebody change the headline? “Obama sticks it to gays again” was the headline I was referring to as ‘unfortunate’...

It all makes sense now...

1) hate crimes attached to the military budget

2) Miranda Rights to combatants, treating them as citizens

3) dumping the 'Don't ask-Don't tell'

Yep, they have a new strategy...all military will declare themselves gay... and since all combatants are to have citizens rights, they can be charged as citizens, too!

There will be a new Cpl Klinger Division! The enemy even looks at our guys funny, they're history--hate crime! Victim/special class warfare! We will just PC that enemy into surrender ooh-rah!.Photobucket

Well, ya know, I can tolerate their "lifestyle" since our PC society is forcing me to and as long as they don't go getting in my face with it! But I will NOT accept it as something ordained by God and something to be sanctioned in marriage or something that I must become enthralled with and treat as "perfectly normal" just because they are also human and American, etc., etc., etc...

Just because they are too lazy and gutless to pursue happiness with memebers of the opposite sex in a normal, potentially reproductive relationship for the benefit of continuing the human race, doesn't mean I must honor some artificial extra-constitutional "right(s)" as an abused member of some racial minority. It's just not gonna happen!!!

I know this is difficult when some family member chooses this route to supposed happiness, or when some friend of the family, or even some admired person like Dick Cheney has a family member with such a "bent," but that's just tough!!!

I have freedom of association in this country and I will not be forced to act out some PC "acceptance" of this "lifestyle" that is a choice, not an inheritantly natural condition. Expecially on the field of combat, or it's preparatory excercises or institutions commissioned with defending my nation!!!

The only thing Americans can agree on anymore is that Obama is a major disappointment.

Max Klinger never claimed to be gay, he only claimed to be crazy—in fact, in one episode the psychiatrist Sidney Freedman suggested he might be gay, and Max freaked out because it was the farthest thing from the truth.

You need a different poster boy for DADT!

I believe that usage is in the New York Times, AP and other style books. First reference in an article is to “President” whoever. After that it is “Mr.” whoever.

As I see it the homo activists get their support only from within their minority group, and the majority of their support from the Leftists who use them as tools towards their goal of demoralizing the Nation.

Stopping the Left will stop the homo movement in its tracks. We will hear from them occasionally, but they won’t be having any traction if they haven’t the Left to push them out of their mudhole.

Hopefully this coming November will result in a halt to the advancement of the homo movement, and then we have to push them, and their Leftist users back into the cesspool from which they arose dripping, and stinking like Hell.

Democrats need money.

Homosexuals give money to politicians who are willing to do what they want.

This seems more fundraising cover.

The parade of has been military and pencil pushers from the pentagon is only a distraction.

The only hope they have is RINOs and closetted RINOs.

Well, Mr. Obama beats the way they referred to president Bush as just Bush. Personally I think referring to him as Zero would be more respect than he deserves. He is not a zero he is a negative and a large negative at that.

Genesis 13:13
 Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21 
  Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house. 

They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." 

Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.

 

Psalms 12:8      The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Ain't this just FABULOUS??      More?

Isaiah 3:9   The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

2 Peter 2:13b  Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


 

 

Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.



2 Peter 2

 1.  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
 2.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
 3.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
 4.  For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,  putting them into gloomy dungeons  to be held for judgment;
 5.  if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
 6.  if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
 7.  and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
 8.  (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
 9.  if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
 10.  This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature  and despise authority.   Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
 11.  yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
 12.  But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
 13.  They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

 9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
     Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

 


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape.....
