Complete story here.
On Tuesday, our president spoke to a group of "gay leaders" at the White House. As I mentioned last week, the gay community is upset that their agenda is not being implemented quickly enough by the president.
President Obama's remarks to this group included this disturbing quote: "I will not only be your friend, I will continue to be an ally and a champion and a president who fights with you and for you." There were also these remarks:
Some points to note here:
"I know many in this room don't believe that progress has come fast enough. And I understand that," Obama said. But he added: "I expect and hope to be judged not by words, not by promises I've made, but by promises that my administration keeps."
By the time he leaves office, the president said, "I think you guys will have pretty good feelings about the Obama administration."
- Homosexuality is a sin. It is morally wrong, and this is clearly taught in the Bible. To be the "champion" of those who openly and proudly display their sinfulness, and to actively pursue goals which enable this sinfulness and reward those who do it, is wrong.
- Imagine this quote, in a new context: Speaking to a group of Christians! "I will not only be your friend, I will continue to be an ally and a champion and a president who fights with you and for you." Wouldn't that be wonderful? Why can't we see this instead? Why not have our president work toward goals like strengthening families and eliminating abortions? Why does he instead pander toward homosexuals while offending Christians?
- His last sentence is telling: He wants to be judged by kept promises. He does NOT want to be judged by words or promises made in the past. Does this sound hypocritical to anyone other than me?
