Anyone on the Left cheering President Obama’s dropping of legal support for the Defense of Marriage Act isn’t thinking even 30 minutes into the future. Do they really like the precedent that a President can pick what laws to enforce? (BTW, DOMA passed by huge margins in the Senate (85 – 14) and House (342 – 67) and was signed into law by President Clinton.) Will they just sit there when a Republican President does ignores laws he opposes?
Really? Got any Bible verses for that? In addition to Jesus specifically stating that marriage was designed for one man and one woman:
- 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
- 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
- 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
- 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.
President Obama today directed the U.S. Department of Justice to stop defending theindefensible: the so called “Defense of Marriage Act” which bars federal recognition of same sex marriages.
“Indefensible?” That’s beyond hyperbole considering what both Christian and non-Christian cultures have determined through history. Same-sex unions by nature and design do not produce the next generation. Marriage, by definition, is the union of a man and a woman.
This was an act of moral courage on the part of the president
That’s odd, when a Republican like Rick Perry spends time passing a sonogram law to reduce abortions and make them safer for women the Lefty criticism is that he should be working on the budget or other bigger problems (Bigger than saving lives?!). But when Obama does something like this to cater to certain sexual preferences it is courage. Check.
The prohibition of gay marriage is the twin evil of the legal prohibition that not long ago existed that barred interracial marriages.
For the 100th time, skin color is morally neutral, sexual behavior is not.
The General Synod of the United Church of Christ made history by becoming the first mainline Christian denomination to endorse full marriage equality in 2005.
Yes, we know you are a band of apostates. As Glenn noted, “The United Church of Christ has again demonstrated it is more involved with the social gospel than the true gospel, and that they assist those who behave illegally. In Chicago a UCC has given sanctuary and protected some of the Wisconsin Democrat lawmakers who are hiding from the State Patrol rather return to do the job they are being paid to do.”
The U.S. Department of Justice “will now take the position in court that the act should be struck down as a violation of same-sex couples’ rights to equal protection under the law,” according to The New York Times. This action on the part of the president moves our nation closer to being the Beloved Community.
“Beloved community” is a classically nauseating false teacher-ism. He’s got no Bible verses to back it up. He makes up the phrase then pretends that his false god makes that the highest goal. Then again, what do you expect from a “reverend” who brags about taking 6 year old girls to gay pride parades?
