Attention Christian Parents Who Believe God’s Word is True and that Homosexuality is Sin: Obama Declares June as LBGT Pride Month

On June 1, the White House released a Proclamation by Barack Obama that included the following words:

Due in no small part to the determination and dedication of the LGBT rights movement, more LGBT Americans are living their lives openly today than ever before. I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration… My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives... I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.

Interestingly the "Proclamation" was a quiet one. It can be found on the White House website through a search, but it is not included in the regular press release area of the site. Obama is attempting to appeal to democratic gay voters but do so with as little attention as possible.

Hillary Clinton is making gay rights an issue of foreign policy as well. She vowed on Monday to fight for gay rights around the world and to urge "elimination of violence and discrimination against people based on sexual orientation or gender identity."

I agree with Bob Stith of the Southern Baptist Convention who told Baptist Press that the proclamation encourages "pride in what God clearly says is sin." We are living through an era in which increasingly our unique nation that was built on God’s principles is becoming an enemy of God and advancing the evil which He forbids. Barack Obama is systematically assaulting the three basic rights which our Founding Fathers declared were given by God and were in their words, "unalienable!"

     1.) Life: He unilaterally decided to send billions of taxpayer funds to agencies around the world to pay for abortions and is committed to removing every hindrance to abortions in this country all the way through the ninth month.

     2.) Liberty: He is ramming through Congress new hate crimes legislation that will make it illegal for me to preach the Gospel without penalty or the threat of being put in jail.

     3.) Pursuit of happiness: Private and profitable businesses across America are being closed as family owned car dealerships are destroyed by the Presidential appointed Car Czar who is unelected and unaccountable to anyone.

"The bottom line," said Stith, who is SBC’s representative for the Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals, "is that if God defines something as sin, we do no one any favors by attempting to blur those lines. Nor will we be doing future generations any favors by obliterating barriers God has put up for our protection."

God puts up boundaries for our lives because He loves us and wants to protect us from pain and heartache. There is no other outcome for choosing to participate in blatant sin. We have a responsibility as Christians and Americans to continue to stand against something that we know will be a cause for the continued breakdown of our society. God calls us to love the sinner but hate the sin and we do this by courageously and unashamedly speaking the truth. Then we lovingly present the answer: repentance and letting God change lives from the inside out.
