CHICAGO, May 10, 2012 /Standard Newswire/ — Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) President Peter LaBarbera issued the following statement today on President Barack Obama announcing his support for homosexual “marriage”:

President Obama’s embrace of homosexual “marriage” (so-called) is surprising only in its timing. Most Americans do not realize that Obama was FOR homosexual “marriage” years ago as a State Senate candidate in Illinois, before switching to “Civil Unions.” Now this president, like a chameleon changing colors, returns full circle to advocating “marriage” between people of the same sex — as a public Christian, no less.

Obama’s embrace of homosexual “marriage” (an oxymoron) completes his sellout of the American people, and of God, on this critical issue that speaks to issues far deeper than politics.  Many will remember this 2008 presidential debate exchange between then-candidate Sen. Obama and Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren:

REV. RICK WARREN: Define marriage.

SEN. BARACK OBAMA: I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. (Applause.) Now, for me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union. You know, God’s in the mix. (Applause.)

That solemn affirmation of real marriage helped Obama become president, but four years later it appears to have been a sham — an artful pose intended to convey piety and moderation to gullible Christians. As President, Obama has gone so far as to unconstitutionally refuse to defend the Defense of Marriage Act — passed overwhelmingly by a bipartisan Congress and signed into law by Democratic President Bill Clinton — to help his homosexual activist allies in their “marriage” quest.  Yet they demanded more.

Once again, as he did to justify his support of proud homosexuality (dismissing Romans 1), the president twists Scripture to rationalize his expedient rejection of biblical Truth. With unparalleled chutzpah, the same Obama who called marriage “sacred” now cites the Golden Rule to justify its absurd and revolutionary redefinition to include sexual perversion (homosexuality). It seems precious little is truly sacred to the Left, secular or religious. God cannot bless sin, and no true Christian would confirm others in a sinful lifestyle — one that merits eternal judgment (I Corinthians 6). The good news is that many men and women once trapped in homosexuality have found freedom through the same Christ whose words Obama distorts.

The “evolution” of Obama — and Vice President Joe Biden, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and so many prominent Democrats (and libertarian Republicans) — toward accepting “same-sex marriage,” is really a story of the corruption of modern liberalism and, indeed, America’s slide into moral decadence. The chattering classes dwell obsessively on politics — and certainly Obama’s capitulation was driven by pressure from his well-funded “gay” activist base. But America’s precipitous moral decline — represented by the slow, and then rapid, embrace of evil (organized sin) by its leaders — tells a more important story: America is losing its goodness because we are leaving God behind.

Yesterday, Barack Obama used his bully pulpit to hasten America’s slide into oblivion (sexual immorality accompanies the decline of civilizations). The LGBT cheerleaders otherwise known as the media love him all the more for his trendy defection. But how Republicans and everyday Americans — especially Christians — respond to Obama’s moral treachery will say a great deal about whether there is any hope left for this nation that professes to be “under God” even as it brazenly rejects Him.

    The verb ‘pervert’ means to twist. Notice how Mr. O (OWHNI) perverts the Scripture. Satan himself tried to tempt Jesus by perverting Scripture, but even he was forced to withdraw, when he saw that Jesus was way ahead of him. The Golden rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.), as this article clearly points out, cannot be made to mean that I should accept the sinful behavior of others simply because they don’t think it’s sinful. God has his standards, and does not change them to satisfy those who reject his standards. If we, as a nation, follow this President, we will be rebelling against God. We, like sheep, will have been scattered — each going his own way. The only reason that someone like President Obama (OWHNI) gets away with this kind of blatant perversion of Scripture is the public’s pervasive ignorance of the Bible.

      Absolutely true and well-put, Mike!

    Nothing in opposing “gay marriage” violates the Golden Rule anyway. We hold others to the standards that marriage has to meet (partner of legal age, not a close relative, consenting and of the opposite sex), and we are held to them ourselves. No problem there.
