Obama’s Change Begins by Force–
Painting the Roses Red
Updated just minutes after the inauguration, the new Obama White House website declares “We need to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA), instantly jeopardizing the marriage laws of 45 states, including constitutional amendments in 30 states where voters have recently acted to give marriage the greatest protection possible at the state level. Instead of protecting the will of voters all across the country, President Obama’s policy would allow a handful of judges in Massachusetts and Connecticut to force same-sex marriage on the entire nation.
Obama’s support of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), threatens to nullify every state protection and limitation on abortion, because he personally believes there should be no limitations, not for underage girls, not even for late term pregnancies. “Freedom of choice” is above all, as long as it’s a choice Obama believes in. All other choices must be painted over to match his like the dripping red roses of the Queen of Hearts’ garden.
There are divisions on issues in this country for a reason. We are not all of one mind on these hotbed issues. We all have separate voices that ought to be heard. What leader of the people fights to overturn their votes, their laws, their state’s rights? Why must all our differences be painted over in the same shade of federal red?
The way to unity is not by brute force.
The cry from the grass roots is all that stands in the way of Obama’s radical change unveiled, so cry! Make your voice heard! This brand of “change” is a moral bloodletting that our country cannot stand.
‘ This is the most bold and comprehensive pro-homosexual, abortion-friendly administration agenda we’ve ever seen.’
“President Obama is no friend of family values, and that is made perfectly clear on the White House Web site,” said Ashley Horne, federal policy analyst at Focus on the Family Action. “This is the most bold and comprehensive pro-homosexual, abortion-friendly administration agenda we’ve ever seen. And this is no time for Christians to remain silent.”
WhiteHouse.gov: “President Obama supports full civil unions that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples. Obama also believes we need to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.” (The Defense of Marriage Act is the federal government’s definition of marriage as between one man and one woman.)
Focus on the Family: Four key points.
WhiteHouse.gov: “He has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Administration.”
Focus on the Family: Every human life has inherent value and should be protected, from fertilization to natural death.
On destructive embryonic stem-cell research
WhiteHouse.gov: “Obama is a co-sponsor of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007, which will allow research of human embryonic stem cells derived from embryos.”
Focus on the Family: Supports and encourages stem-cell research using non-embryonic sources of stem cells, including umbilical cord blood, placenta, bone marrow and various adult tissues. No human lives are destroyed in harvesting stem cells from these sources. Tax dollars should not be used to encourage the destruction of living human embryos for research .
On special rights for homosexual employees
WhiteHouse.gov: “President Obama supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and believes that our anti-discrimination employment laws should be expanded to include sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Focus on the Family: The government should not tell employers whom they can hire based on a category of protection that is not based on an immutable characteristic, but on a changeable sexual attraction, behavior or identity. The goal of laws like this is to silence religious free speech.
On a new class of crimes based on the victim’s sexual orientation
WhiteHouse.gov: “President Obama and Vice President Biden will strengthen federal hate crimes legislation (and) expand hate crimes protection.”
Focus on the Family: Everyone should receive equal protection under the law. Hate-crime laws threaten the free-speech rights of people of faith who speak out on the issue of homosexuality. These laws also make it possible that pastors could be prosecuted for preaching against homosexuality, as they have been in other countries.
On same-sex adoption
WhiteHouse.gov: “President Obama believes that we must ensure adoption rights for all couples and individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation.”
Focus on the Family: Children deserve the best chance to have both a mother and a father. Same-sex adoption increases the likelihood that a child will be denied a mom or a dad.
On homosexuals in the military
WhiteHouse.gov: “President Obama agrees we need to repeal the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy.”
Focus on the Family: Federal law states that homosexuality is incompatible with military service. Meanwhile, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is a practice put in place during the Clinton administration prohibiting the military from asking about sexual orientation. The Department of Defense must be allowed to set its own requirements for military service.
