TO THE EDITOR: Recently, President Obama announced his support for gay marriage.
Was anyone surprised since he’s been pushing the homosexual agenda for years? Immediately, many in Hollywood went ecstatic and threw him a $15 million fundraiser.
Now energized, the President went on the attack, saying that those who don’t support gay marriage are “backwards on equality” and that they “enshrine discrimination into the Constitution.” He said he wants a “nation that treats people fairly” and that he’s just “looking out for the good of the people.” Then he called for the repeal of DOMA, which is the law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
On the surface, his arguments sound legitimate, after all, who wants to discriminate and treat another person unfairly? But this entire argument is built on the lie that some people are born as homosexuals—that it’s genetic. Sadly, when a lie is said often enough, too many people believe it.
The truth is that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral. The better question is, “Should all behavior be treated equally?” Societies collapse without moral restrictions. The President’s stance is very upsetting because of his influence, but more upsetting is that a recent poll said only seven percent of Americans listed same-sex marriage as one of their top concerns. Americans are split about 50/50 on the issue. That is what allows a president to take an immoral stance.
Will God continue to bless a nation with such apathy? The homosexual agenda is attacking the foundational values of this country and destroying the religious freedoms we have taken for granted. God designed marriage to be a sacred union between a man and a woman. Moms and dads still matter.
Will we trust God’s moral design or follow President Obama and Hollywood’s reckless immoral path?
