Barack Obama - Marriage

Barack Obama MarriageHow Barack Obama is redefining "marriage" for America

Racism involves pre-judgment - i.e., "prejudice" - based on the color of one's skin. By contrast, homosexuality involves willing acts by its participants. Condemnation of homosexuality is therefore based on actions, not pre-judgment/prejudice.

Both racism and homosexuality are sins condemned by the Bible (see Bible Verses Against Homosexuality), yet proponents of homosexual marriage have cunningly positioned homosexual marriage not as a sin but as akin to the civil rights movement that fought against the sin of racism.

Barack Obama is a fervent supporter of homosexual marriage. Within hours of becoming president, Barack Obama announced on the White House website the following as the "civil rights" objectives of his presidency:

"Support Full Civil Unions and Federal Rights for LGBT Couples: President Obama supports full civil unions that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples. President Obama also believes we need to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and enact legislation that would ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex couples in civil unions and other legally-recognized unions...

Oppose a Constitutional Ban on Same-Sex Marriage: President Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2006 which would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and prevented judicial extension of marriage-like rights to same-sex or other unmarried couples.

Expand Adoption Rights: President Obama believes that we must ensure adoption rights for all couples and individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation. He thinks that a child will benefit from a healthy and loving home, whether the parents are gay or not."

As president and a direct beneficiary of America's African American civil rights movement, Barack Obama is strategically positioned to redefine and champion homosexual "marriage" as a civil rights issue.

Even more damaging than his policies will be the long-term damage from his appointments of Supreme Court Justices who are likely to strike down as unconstitutional the anti-homosexual-marriage bans now in effect in 29 states, and who will continue to uphold Roe v Wade (see Abortion is Murder).
