American Family Association says it best: Everywhere hate crimes laws have gone into effect, they have been quickly used to intimidate, silence and punish people of faith who express deeply held religious objections to the normalization of homosexuality…Such laws not only punish officially disapproved speech and thought, they create two tiers of victims. Under hate crimes laws, some victims get more protections than others, which violate the fundamental American principle of equality under the law.
Obama will deliver the Human Rights (Campaign) event’s speech tomorrow night (10/10/09) at HRC’s 13th annual national dinner. Gay activists want the president to say he will oppose measures intended to compromise LGBT rights:
“We are honored to share this night with President Obama, who has called upon our nation to embrace LGBT people as brothers and sisters,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “It is fitting that he will speak to our community on the night that we pay tribute to his friend and mentor Senator Edward Kennedy, who knew that as president, Barack Obama would take on the unfinished business of this nation – equal rights for the LGBT community, and for every person who believes in liberty and justice for all.”
How can there be liberty and justice for all when we as Christians are NOT included in any protection from the government through any legislation from this new administration? How do you reconcile this with the American Public which is 77% Christian? This cannot be justified or defensible.
It is not the White House’s job to make everyone happy – their responsibility is to make sure all Americans follow the law to the letter, not make it up as they go along.
Anything else is a poor attempt at trying to control and bind the hands of God by allowing the Gay Agenda in public schools, churches and the government.
