(CNSNews.com) In a statement released Friday, President Barack Obama declared that "LGBT persons are endowed with" what he called "inalienble rights," but ommited the word "Creator" from what clearly was an allusion to the famous language of the Declaration of Independence.
The president's June 17 statement was in response to a U.N. resolution on human rights, sexual orientation and gender identity.
(T)his marks a significant milestone in the long struggle for equality, and the beginning of a universal recognition that LGBT persons are endowed with the same inalienable rights -- and entitled to the same protections -- as all human beings, the statement said.
The Declaration of Independence reads: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (Bolding added).
Fridays statement was the third time this year that the president has used the inalienable rights language and omitted the word Creator.
-- In an April 14 speech to the Democratic National Committee at Navy Pier in Chicago, the president said: Its the fact that were able to keep two ideas together at the same time: One, that were all individuals with -- endowed with certain inalienable rights and liberties.
-- On May 19, in remarks that he made at the White House on the events in the Middle East and in North Africa, Obama also excluded the word Creator, while directly quoting from the Declaration.
The president said: For the American people, the scenes of upheaval in the region may be unsettling, but the forces driving it are not unfamiliar. Our own nation was founded through a rebellion against an empire. Our people fought a painful Civil War that extended freedom and dignity to those who were enslaved. And I would not be standing here today unless past generations turned to the moral force of nonviolence as a way to perfect our union - organizing, marching, protesting peacefully together to make real those words that declared our nation: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. (Bolding added.)
Those words must guide our response to the change that is transforming the Middle East and North Africa - words which tell us that repression will fail, and that tyrants will fall, and that every man and woman is endowed with certain inalienable rights. (Bolding added.)
As CNSNews.com has previously reported, the president has dropped reference to the Creator while speaking of the inalienable rights men are endowed with. For example, he did so on Sept. 15, 2010, when he spoke at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institutes Annual Awards Gala, and he did so again at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
it’s not the first time,it won’t be the last
I’m really getting tired of this asshole giving us the finger.
Isn’t it embarrassing that gays and lesbians added “transgender” into their movement? So every liberal idiot president pays homage to a mutilating procedure that can’t possibly have good medical science behind it, and which in many cases is the result of a mental problem.
And if we’re just talking about cross dressers, please, that is hardly worthy of a rights movement.
If there is no God then the rights are not “inalienable”?
And an “inalienable” right to “change” your gender?? puleeeze.
Man’s “inalienable rights” do not include government-funded benefits, nor approval of one’s voluntary public behavior by others. To insist otherwise is to devalue both the nature of truly inalienable rights - life, liberty and personal property - as well as their Divine source.
Actually, in granting rights to LGBT, I’m kinda glad he didn’t claim their rights are endowed by the Creator.
I guess the transgendered people tuck what the creator endowed them with between their legs.
And man re-created himself in his own image; in the image of himself re-created he him; male, female, both or neither re-created he him.
This is an assault at the DNA level of what has made America a great and free nation. It is the "supernatural" basis. . .the "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" and the "Creator" who "endowed" us with unalienable rights. Thus, the Left sees God, the "supernatural" as the essential stumbling block to their quest for totalitarian power. It is why Marx viewed religion as the "opiate of the people."
GOD will repay obama’s favor... you can rest assured.
“Of course he would not say “creator”
Hussein knows that they may have, indeed, crawled out of the slime along with his kingship.
Genesis 1:27 (LGBT)?
Their “creators” are drug companies and surgeons... God has nothing to do with this. Homosexuality and transgenderism are mental illnesses.
A Creator inherently implies accountability to said Creator.
AND NBC eliminated “Under God” from our pledge of allegiance.
Inquiring minds wonder, did Obozo ask them to do so?
Apparently inalienable is weaker than unalienable, one being should not and the other being can not. I read that Jefferson originally wrote inalienable and that Adams and Franklin changed it to unalienable.
God! Please get the election here!!!
chosen acts not created acts.
not born that way.
Obama only lusts the green money.
So, if Zer0 says the LGBTs have “inalienable rights” he means to die by government's hands.
Stupid, stupid Dhimmis. They will gladly surrender themselves to extinction for the glory of The One, the Great Zer0.
It’s about time he said what he meant, or the fact that he really isn’t up for the rights of everyone, just the people who sponsor him and his political platform. We all know why the original mention of “creator” was included in the Declaration of Independence.
