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 Americas 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 years 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 years 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 Dont Ask, Dont 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 Dont Ask, Dont 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 cant believe Ive been in the Air Force 23 years living in secret, hiding who I am, and now Im 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 its also the golden rule treat others the way youd 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 arent 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 thats 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, Obamas 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 doesnt support it.
Wouldn’t surprise me if 0bama is not the father of his two children, just as he is not the offspring of Barack 0bama Sr. Ann Dunham and Malcolm X made ‘Barack 0bama’. Question is, who fathered Malia and Sasha? Any guesses, anyone?
June is also:
Fight the Filthy Fly Month
National Accordion Awareness Month
National Adopt a Cat Month
National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month
Turkey Lovers Month
Has Barry acknowledged all these ‘month celebrations’ too?
Makes one wonder if homosexuality is a cause of serial murder syndrome or if they are both triggered by the same traumas in the person’s early life.
I'll take a guess.
Some guy named Demetrius, Rhashan , or Jemarcus?
LOL. Blacks get less days than Gays. Well thats what they get for voting for a 1/2White-Africanamerican Communist Bisexual Cocaine Freak.
Maybe odumbi will figure out a month he can call his own ....like traitor closet homosexual cocaine freak communist month.
If Obama and crowd have their way,in Octember.
Very well said.
And I am sure he will do nothing to stop the thousands of abortions every single day in America.
ann coulter will be happy though.
Indeed, submission condition is to be gay and submissive to the state.
Yesterday I had a cop tell me I had to address me as sir, as if I was his army private. I said, excuse me? NO, I do not have to address you with sir.
Unless you now are gay butt fcked certified, authorities will not allow you your submissive pass.
The mark on the hand might as well be on your anal figures.
LOL .... 0bama = goatse
re: “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.”
I am in agreement with you. We still have many citizens who believe in God and His moral commandments. I think we have many citizens who follow God’s moral law or at least believe in the veracity of His laws even though they may not be evangelical or church going people.
I know it’s been said many times by others that our nation’s true need is for spiritual revival back to God. But, we are so religously pluralistic now - we don’t seem to have a common moral center anymore. At the same time we must not despair for I do believe where it says that what seems impossible with man IS possible with God.
He has been merciful to us many times in our past. I pray along with you for God’s help again in spite of our many national moral sins.
There are some significant exceptions, but unfortunately, many of our political leadership from local, state, to federal (in all three branches) seem to be in the forefront of accepting and promoting not only homosexal perversion, but also anything that destroys the family structure and policies that corrode liberty, freedom, as well as law and order.
What our people do in the next several elections is important, but more than that, there must be a whole-hearted turning spiritually, morally, politically, and socially toward Godly principles else we are going to lose this battle. We are going to lose our nation.
Anyone who has studied history at all knows that what is happening now has all happened before over and over in other long gone civilizations.
But, one significant thing that sets our nation apart from all others is that in our founding, our great Founding Fathers espoused the belief that the source of our liberty, freedom, and equality is God alone - not from a government or even a constitution, because governments and constitutions are man-made and therefore transitory. As long as we as a people hold that belief to be true and respect God and His moral law, I don’t believe that we would ever fall. Deny the truth of that belief that the Founders established our country upon, and we will fall.
I don’t mean to be dramatic. We don’t all know each other here on Free Republic. We don’t even all agree here politically regarding how conservatism should be worked out, but I do know that we all KNOW our country is in serious, serious trouble right to its soul. We all sense it. We all have an urgency that unless things change we may not make it. God alone knows.
We need to seriously pray, seriously live our lives in a way that pleases God, be a witness for Him, and stand up at home, at work, at play, as well as in the voting box.
Once again, I pray along with you gcraig - God help us. Only He can.
No denying Willard Romney is a RINO and has catered to radical homosexuals before, but I think conservatives would hold his feet to the fire. This is impossible with Barry the sodomite lover.
I don't care what people do behind closed doors between consenting adults, but for the now so-called leader of the free world to say ANYTHING about personal sexuality is beyond the pale. I despise this man. He has no since of decorum.
If the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) can exist, then why not the Loving Animals/Mammals Brotherhood (LAMB)? Yeah, I know sick - just extrapolating. Hope Bambi has his teleprompter ready when some organization promotes sex with animals. How fun would that be?
Barry’s just making an excuse to party at Man Country with Rahm and Larry Sinclare.
Barry’s just making an excuse to party at Man Country with Rahm and Larry Sinclair.
Axelrod hopes there are many like you.
That’s in August. September is White Pride month and July is Conservative Pride month.
This from a man who considers it “punishment” if his daughters get pregnant from engaging in sexual activity.
He’s a prissy man-child who is anti-breeder. What do you expect from a man who was raised by a transvestite nanny and is proud of his skepticism of “organized religion”?
Cher rejected her daughter after Chastity came out of the closet. Sonny Bono was the one who still cared for her.
Cher may have "evolved" on this issue but the public deserves to know the truth when her name and celebrity are being used to promote "supporters".
Stonewall was about a mob run speakeasy being busted by the cops. Should have let the ATF storm in instead.
Lefties never grill other lefties about their past. That treatment is reserved for conservatives and moderates.
They also empire build by bringing their co-horts into academia, medicine, and other institutions.
Workplace relationships are considered a “bad thing” if you are heterosexual because that may imply monogamy and tolerance of persons of different sexes. Homosexuals play the field and can’t discriminate against a lover of the “same sex”.
Be proud of yourself. You are smarter and more patriotic than Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Reagan, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Scott Walker, etc, all of whom will be campaigning for Romney.
vERY TRUE TY
The rainBO, of course.
Next month is Breeder Pride Month, a/k/a Gay Recruit-making Month.
And you have to admit that Romney's actual record is that of a leftist Democrat. That is a FACT. The scariest part of this is how firmly conservatives are squeezing their eyes shut, and how firmly they are planting their fingers in their ears, to what Romney is, while chanting: ABO ABO ABO .. We can't survive another four years of Obama .... we can't survive another four years of Obama ..."
Look at Romney's record.
I respect my own common sense. I like Levin and Rush, Palin, Gingrich, etc, and I think they're pretty smart. I don't see the ones I respect most campaigning for Romney; all I see them doing is mouthing ABO. It's pretty obvious that Palin is reluctant as hell to even acknowledge Romney -- because her instincts, like mine, her common sense, like most FReepers', is telling her that Romney stinks.
I'm just heeding my common sense.
Romney's administration in Mass. was very gay friendly, issuing several official proclamations during his governorship (you can look it up) in celebration of Gay Youth Pride, which includes middle schools in its "outreach." Kids as young as 12 -- that's Romney.
It's really a bad sign when conservatives object to Obama on the grounds that he's gay friendly ... and rail at me for refusing to commit ABO with Romney.
Common sense is quietly confirming: Romney would be a mistake.
Turkey Lovers’ Month is for the benefit of all the Obomba worshippers....especially Chrissy Matthews.
In other words, June has become “making choice to be gay month”.
The problem is that, no other conservaitve alternate canidiates at all, period.
The reason why conservative folks are not going out of their way in regards to Romney is because priority #1 is GET OBAMA OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, PERIOD. Obama CANNOT have a second term or the USA as we know of it is FINISHED.
It is not those mentioned names are not smart or do not care, it is that, as I have posted, getting Obama OUT has to be #1.
The position is that with a conservative House and soon to be conservative Senate WILL put Romney’s feet to the fire. Not possible under Obama.
For myself, I AM NOT CRAZY for Romney, because he is a RINO, but as I have posted, at least the House and the Senate will hold his feet to the fire.
I hope so, and in a special way, the one about adopting a shelter cat month.
I object to Obama primarily on foreign policy. He is going to allow Iran to get a nuke. They will use it or sell it to someone who will use it here.
Agreed. We will be on the outside looking in and have absolutely no influence.
Isn’t June 19th ‘Afro-American Independance Day’
Did he just crap on the black community again?
Oh well, they’ll likely still vote skin color come November.
I don't know how much our RINO house-sitters and senate-peanut gallery will hold him to the fire - but nothing says the Tea Party can't do just that (once/if) he gets in!
Obozo’s main occupation after being dragged from the occupied White Hut will be trolling for like-minded sodomists in Central Park. Or, on the other hand, he may take up residence on Castro Street where he will feel more at home.
I don’t know what will become of Moochell, Malia and little Sasha, but with the fat pension being given to Obozo they should do just fine.
Why is it a revelation that members of the pervert alliance (homosexuality is really a religion to these level 1 mentally deranged celebrants) would attack any normal dimorphic human that is disgusted with their deviance and disease vectoring?
About 45 is the average lifespan for the males; at least 15 years lower than for tobacco smokers. It isn’t just the fact that they have an unhealthy lifestyle, but they spread diseases throughout the population. The males are the Typhoid Larrys of the 21st century. And now, they are entering grade schools teaching this behavior to young children; a vile form of sexual harrassment, passed off as tolerance teaching.
“but its unsanitary and most always involves the ingestation of fecal matter.”
Yes, and the fecal consumption by the males results in the highest incidence of upper GI tract complications associated with introducing fecal coliform bacteria where they cause disease. Little different from sick parents who have put fecal material into their kid’s food to sicken them.
