“I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.” (Barack Obama – April 17th, 2008)
7 years later…
America’s 44th President can add another award to his trophy case thanks to being voted as “Out” magazine’s 2015 “Ally” of the Year.
The “Ally” award is given to an individual who has championed the “rights” of LGBT’s…which definitely includes the new “legalization” of homosexual marriage. And sadly, there’s very few politicians that come even close to rivaling the President’s political agenda in this area of light for darkness and darkness for light (Isaiah 5:20).
I’m sure the President is so proud of his award…err, make that a certain sort of pride in his award.
I wonder if President Obama repeated the whole “God’s in the mix” thing during his acceptance speech? EA
“It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, for a throne is established by righteousness.” (Proverbs 16:12)
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” (Proverbs 29:2)
“The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.” (Psalm 12:8)
King David, who understood well the effects of a leadership’s morality on their nation, was saying that wickedness and rebellion toward righteousness has a way of coming out of the woodwork when acceptance of sin finds a seat among the honored and the authorities; and in case you haven’t noticed – America’s “woodwork” has been emptying out lately!
Since 2008 approximately 24 States have passed laws recognizing homosexual “marriages” and unions; these include states who have had the will of the people overturned in the courts. People in at least another dozen states are challenging state laws that limit marriage to one man and one woman. Since 2008 the same-sex spouses of the federal executive branch employees have received tax payer funded benefits. Since 2008 the nation’s military has done away with “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and “D.O.M.A.” is a thing of the past.
So what happened in 2008 to make the woodwork let loose? Vileness was exalted. EA
“But they paid no attention, and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than the nations whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel. And the Lord spoke by His servants the prophets, saying, “Because Manasseh king of Judah has done these abominations (he has acted more wickedly than all the Amorites who were before him, and has also made Judah sin with his idols), therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Behold, I am bringing such calamity upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whoever hears of it, both his ears will tingle.” (2 Kings 21:9-12)
