President Obama Proclaims June “Gay Pride Month”
The New American ^ | 6/8/2012 | Dave Bohon

Posted on 06/10/2012 12:29:31 PM PDT by IbJensen

Every year he has been in office President Obama has made it a point to cozy up to America’s tiny homosexual activist minority by officially recognizing June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” This year, of course, was no exception. Having just come out officially in favor of legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the President followed up on June 1 by issuing this year’s proclamation setting aside the entire month to commemorate the valuable contributions that gays, lesbians, transvestites, and an odds-and-ends assortment of sexually- and gender-confused individuals have made to American society.

“The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community has written a proud chapter” in American history, declared Obama with this year’s announcement. “From brave men and women who came out and spoke out, to union and faith leaders who rallied for equality, to activists and advocates who challenged unjust laws and marched on Washington, LGBT Americans and allies have achieved what once seemed inconceivable. This month, we reflect on their enduring legacy, celebrate the movement that has made progress possible, and recommit to securing the fullest blessings of freedom for all Americans.”

The President used the proclamation to remind the “gay” community of all he has done for its members, and how much homosexual voters owe him their support come November. “Since I took office, my administration has worked to broaden opportunity, advance equality, and level the playing field for LGBT people and communities,” Obama said. He pointed out that it was he who forced through the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act, bullied Congress into ending the common sense “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban on homosexuals serving in the military, and is currently doing everything he can to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act and legislate the redefinition of same-sex partnerships as “marriage.”

But “more remains to be done to ensure every single American is treated equally, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” continued the President. “Moving forward, my administration will continue its work to advance the rights of LGBT Americans,” he promised as he officially recognized June as “LGBT Pride” month and invited the American people to celebrate homosexuality as a normal — even praiseworthy — lifestyle.

On the heels of his proclamation, Obama appeared at a June 6 fundraiser attended by some 600 homosexual activists and “gay rights” supporters, including lesbian talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres and 1970s pop singing star and actress Cher, whose own daughter went through “gender reassignment” and changed her name from Chastity to “Chaz” in an effort to live as a man.

OneNewsNow.com reported that Obama “appeared to feed off the energy” of the crowd as he pledged to block any attempt at the reinstatement of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban. Signing the repeal of that ban, Obama said, was a high-water mark for him as President.

On June 5, Stars and Stripes, the government-funded armed forces newspaper, described the results of the lifting of that ban, joyfully reporting that homosexual military personnel openly celebrated their lifestyle at a special “LGBT Pride” reception thrown by the U.S. Ambassador to Japan in Tokyo. “I can’t believe I’ve been in the Air Force 23 years living in secret, hiding who I am, and now I’m invited to a reception by the emissary of the president of the United States,” Stars and Stripes quoted one attendee, Air Force Master Sgt. Marc Maschhoff.

The military newspaper reported that the event “was an exciting and emotional night for Maschhoff and a handful of other U.S. servicemembers. Maschhoff traveled with his boyfriend — who is also an airman — from Misawa Air Base in northern Japan to Tokyo for the event. Maschhoff said he was invited by the embassy because of his affiliation with the group Outserve, a Washington, D.C.-based association for gay servicemembers with chapters worldwide.”

Amazingly, President Obama has appealed to his supposed Christian faith to justify his support for normalizing the homosexual lifestyle through the force of his office. OneNewsNow reported that on the same day he made his “LGBT Pride” proclamation, and right after a group of black pastors asked to meet with him over their concerns about his endorsement of same-sex marriage as a civil right, “the president pointed to his wife and told ABC News, ‘When we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it’s also the golden rule — treat others the way you’d want to be treated.’”

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality pointed out that the President is behaving “as if rights based on perverse and immoral behavior are basic rights…. Of course, those aren’t basic rights. Basic rights are what we all share as Americans. Rights based on perversion, on changeable homosexual sin, are not basic rights.” He added that “for a man like Obama, who professes to be a faithful Christian, to be celebrating an agenda based on using the government to create rights based on changeable homosexual behavior — that’s a travesty.”

Bob Stith, a strategist on gender issues for the Southern Baptist Convention and head of its Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals, told Baptist Press News that Obama is purposefully casting “all those who have a genuine, biblically based belief that homosexual acts are sin as haters.” But, he added, “it is not prejudicial to say that certain acts which have been viewed as sin for over 3,000 years by all three major religions are still sin.”

Stith added that the “words the president uses in his drive to normalize homosexuality clearly portray any who disagree with him as prejudiced bigots. Those who agree are loving and brave. The danger here is that those who dare to seek to protect the definition of marriage which has stood unchallenged for thousands of years are themselves the victims of prejudice and hate.”

Sadly, Stith said, Obama’s “LGBT Pride” proclamation “shows no interest in preventing this kind of bigotry. Rather it is another example that if something is repeated often enough it will be accepted as truth even if the evidence doesn’t support it.”

It should be homosexual shame month. This November it will be Heterosexual Pride Month!

Today, in part due to Obama, gays, lesbians and transvestites are openly celebrating their sexual orientation. History has shown such celebrations can be cut short if a totalitarian or other government unfriendly to homosexuals takes power. In retrospect, some things that happened in Germany in the prelude to Nazi Fascism are now manifesting in the United States, for example (NDAA) The National Defense Authorization Act appears almost a copy of the Nazi’s (Discriminatory Decrees) passed by the German Parliament and sign by Hitler on February 28, 1933 that suspended sections of the German Constitution that protected civil liberties. Under (NDAA) U.S. Government can deem any person or group a threat to national security; a terrorist, combatant or belligerent to order someone arrested and detained indefinitely without charges or trial. That might potentially include homosexuals should a future U.S. Government be unfriendly to gays or for political gain invoke NDAA to eliminate homosexuals.

“Gay” isn’t gay. It’s un-natural and disgusting.

Is sodomy something to be proud of?

Obama should explain why he thinks homosexual sex is something to brag about and be proud of.

The occupant of the White Hut has a thing for muslims and homosexuals. His misspent youth must have included episodes of homosexual experimentation.

How this phony fathered two daughters is simply amazing.

Obama can proclaim anything he wants right now. His time is short. He WILL reap what he sows. He and his followers are openly sticking their finger in God's eye.

The majority of Americans will never accept this. True Christians will NEVER accept this. God is not mocked. His word openly says that homosexuality is an ABOMINATION. And God does not say that lightly or use that word very often. You can try to 'change' the word any way you like. It still stands as it was written. And there are dire consequences to these behaviors. He warns and warns and then the line in the sand is crossed.<

The good news is that this can still be reversed. 2 Chronicles 7:14

We can stand in the gap as Abraham did. However, the cities of S & G had crossed the line and judgement followed. I pray that we have not.

I haven't got to that chapter yet. I'm still stuck on the first chapter entitled 'AIDS'.

There are many things that the sycophants and accommodators of the homosexual agenda forget to mention.

Sticking one’s pee-pee up another’s poo-poo not only doesn’t make sense, but it’s unsanitary and most always involves the ingestation of fecal matter.

Additionally, practicing homosexuals, after practicing this form of sexual activity become mentally unbalanced. This explains why the majority of serial killers are and were homosexuals.

This is an excellent point about one of the many potential side effects of this episode. Other unforeseen consequences await us. For starters, how will we reconcile the textbooks for social studies in elementary schools? How will we as a society react when the homos evolve to more brazen public acts? How will the supreme court handle the DOMA? Can we swing the pendulum to the right far enough to get a constitutional amendment? Many unanswered questions in this very disturbing issue now. How do we roll back the changes? May God help us.

Can't see how pandering to perverts helps him in that regard.

These folks would probably be voting for him already and he is most likely turning off a lot of possible voters with family values.

Might help if some didn’t show thier “pride” by leading each other around on leashes with S&M gear on.

Also would help if they weren’t forcing redefinition of unchanging defined terminology like marriage which are the foundations of our society. Why not three people define marriage? four? They never discuss that.
What are the limits of redifinition?

I don’t see much to be proud of when rainbow flags are more important to display then the American flag.

Not one damn thing.

Unless you count perpetuating an epidemic, as was mentioned above by another Freeper, or maybe prancing into Catholic churches and committing blasphemy during communion. Then again, Obama probably considers that a contribution.
