 Obama declares June 'LGBT Pride Month'

[b]Obama declares June 'LGBT Pride Month'[/b]

In a presidential proclamation on the White House website, Barack Obama has lauded what he calls "the determination and dedication" of the LGBT movement by proclaiming June as "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."

"The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress," Obama states in the official proclamation, "but there is more to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect."

The proclamation, released on Monday, credits the LGBT movement with being a factor in more Americans who ascribe to those groups "living their lives openly today than ever before."

The president also takes pride in being the first U.S. chief executive to appoint "openly LGBT" candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an administration.

He uses the proclamation to emphasize LGBT-related initiatives that he intends to pursue in the future -- both domestically and internationally.

"I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexual around the world," he states. "Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans."

Among those measures he lists "hate crimes" laws, civil unions, discrimination in the workplace, adoption rights, and ending the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy "in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security."

This is an empty statement. You can not decriminalize an adjective. For all the education the man was supposed to have he can/did not make a grammatically correct sentence.

We desperately need to cling to the Word and do as He says.

Obama Declares June LGBT Month

President Obama has declared June “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month,” becoming the first U.S. president to include bisexual and transgender in the proclamation’s title.


In a difficult-to-find declaration posted on the White House Web site on June 1, Obama praised LGBT Americans for their continual “great and lasting contributions” that “strengthen the fabric of American society.”

He vowed to support measures to “bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans,” including enhancing hate crimes laws, supporting civil unions, ensuring gay adoption rights, outlawing discrimination in the workplace, and ending the current “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the military.

“These issues affect not only the LGBT community, but also our entire Nation,” the presidential proclamation reads. “As long as the promise of equality for all remains unfulfilled, all Americans are affected.

He added, “If we can work together to advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every American will benefit.”

Obama follows in the footsteps of former President Bill Clinton who also issued a similar proclamation in 1999 and 2000. But Clinton did not use the term transgender in his version. He did, however, reference bisexuals.

President George W. Bush, in contrast, did not issue any LGBT proclamation during his eight years in office.

Several Christian leaders have criticized the proclamation, including Bob Stith of the Southern Baptist Convention. Stith told Baptist Press that the proclamation encourages “pride in what God clearly says is sin.”

“The bottom line," said Stith, who is SBC’s representative for the Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals, "is that if God defines something as sin, we do no one any favors by attempting to blur those lines. Nor will we be doing future generations any favors by obliterating barriers God has put up for our protection.”

June is traditionally recognized by the homosexual community as “Gay Pride Month” in commemoration of the Stonewall Inn incident in June 1969. On June 28, 1969, gays and lesbians fought against a police raid that took place at Stonewall Inn in New York City. The incident is widely held to be the first time that the gay community fought against a government entity in American history, and is considered the starting point of the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.

In the proclamation, President Obama lauded the LGBT rights movement for their determination that has allowed more LGBT Americans to live openly today than ever before. He also said he is “proud” to be the first president to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration.

And so our godless president does it again. He snubs the National Day of Prayer, but "comes out" for this? And he calls himself a "Christian"?? By what definition?

Obama has officially, in my mind, become the King Saul of our age - eloquent, tall, attractive (what people like to see) - yet, he is doing evil in the sight of the Lord. He is what the people wanted and what the people envisioned a leader to be. Yet, God says, "I do not look on the outward appearance, I look at the heart."

Obama has stood for every godless position before and since entering office. Just like King Saul, he is what the people wanted, but not what God wanted. In the end, Saul was stripped of his kingly rule and wound up committing suicide in shame; his kingdom given over to a a true worshiper and lover of God - an insignificant shepherd boy who came from the backside of nowhere.

Isa 55:6-9 "Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Is it too wonderful to hope for in our time? We can put our hope in God, for he is able. Our president is just a man in terrible darkness, who would legislate his darkness on the rest of the world. But he is not a king, and he can be removed in 4 years.

Reading it loud and clear.

How about his not commenting on the terrorist who killed at the recruiting center? That 'man' was on the FBI's watch list and still was allowed to gun down soldiers on our soil. And the so-called President says nothing about it. His silence speaks volumes.


God save us.
