Obama to Jay Leno: Russian Laws Against Homosexuality ‘Violating Basic Morality’
Christian News Network ^ | 11 Aug 13 | Heather Clark

Posted on 08/11/2013 5:29:30 PM PDT by SkyPilot

During his recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Barack Obama said that Russia and other countries like it are ‘violating basic morality’ by passing laws in opposition to the homosexual lifestyle.

After Obama was asked about his reaction to Russia granting asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden, Leno then delved into the issue of homosexuality and the 2014 Olympics.

“Well, something that shocked me about Russia — and I’m surprised this is not a huge story — suddenly, homosexuality is against the law,” he said. “I mean, this seems like Germany: Let’s round up the Jews, let’s round up the gays, let’s round up the blacks. I mean, it starts with that. You round up people who you don’t — I mean, why is not more of the world outraged at this?”

Leno was referring to a law that passed in June that bans the dissemination of “homosexual propaganda” to minors, including any material that is “directed at forming nontraditional sexual setup” or which could create a “distorted understanding” of human sexuality.

Well, I’ve been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to people’s basic freedoms, that whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country,” Obama replied. “And I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.”

The irony.

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Romans 1: 18-28

Obama’s “new morality” is the amorality of hedonism. He’s New School.

Do as thou will shall be the law of the land. At least under the Satanic worldview.

You missed the context including verse 28-32, which condemns Obama

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful;

32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Morality is grounded in God.

God calls homosexual sex an ‘abomination’.

Obama is against basic morality!

Amen.

Obama's rhetoric is what all immoral totalitarians are using these days. You cannot speak God's truth because you are "intimidating" or "harming" another person.

They will use this excuse in the very near future to arrest, jail, and persecute Christians who dare to tell the truth - that sin is sin.

I heard a telephone recording of an IRS agent who was intimidating a Christian organization, saying they "didn't have the right to harm someone."

Persecution is already here in America, and it will get worse very quickly.

You are correct.

I was listening to a Christian author on a radio program. He speculated that God is allowing Obama and his immoral followers to perpetuate their curse on America because God wants American to repent, starting with the Church. If America repents, he believes, God will chasten Obama and the evil our midst. But if we do not repent, well.....

Exactly. New homosexual laws will undermine the ability of the established church to keeps its doors open. Once the church goes underground, repentance and purging will begin, and only those who are true believers will be a part of it as those will be “branded: like the Jews in Germany

“suddenly, homosexuality is against the law,” says Obama

Suddenly? Obama always acts as if the world started with his existence or his presidency. Homosexuality has generally been against the law throughout history. Now regardless of where you stand on the issue, that is a historical fact.

Obama’s amateur stupidity and ignorance is without limits.

Even G8d may overlook, but microorganisms don’t.

May I draw your attention to the photo of Bammy on a golf course with two golf balls on the green. Note the lump on his leg.

Those old commandments were the distilled wisdom of tthe culture from which they came.

To borrow a line from Tom Lehrer:
“Turns out there was a reason,
queers are out of season, ...”

Sometimes I feel like I wandered into a warped alternate universe - who would have thought Russia would take a stand for Mid-Eastern Christians and against queers and we would be arming Muslims to attack everyone.

Where’s the Off switch?

Is it "basic morality" to oppose a law that would protect babies that survive a botched butchery? Also bear in mind that this is the same guy who supported traditional marriage until fairly recently. His word means nothing.

“According to reports, public polls from 2010 indicated that 38% of Russians believed that homosexuality is a “bad habit” and 36% said it was “a sickness or result of a psychological trauma.” However, 41% stated that they did not believe laws should be passed that “discriminate” against homosexuals.”

A higher percentage of Americans thin Obamacare should be repealed.

It's game over for the United States, IMO. God chooses nations throughout history to carry the Good News forward. When nations turn away from Him, he takes that mission from that nation and gives it to another.

The USA has just been fired, Russia has just been hired.
