President Obama has certainly made his mark on the history of the United States. Our children will one day read about him in American History books as the first black president, the first foreign born president and the first president to play 150 rounds of golf in one term. Now, after the completion of Obama’s ‘evolution’, he has become the first president to support homosexual marriage. But even those in the homosexual community are questioning his motives. They realize that his support on this issue, just like every other issue in the life of the Narcissist in Chief, centers on himself.
Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post epitomized the pressure from the left for Obama to step out of the closet regarding the homosexual issue. Marcus proceeded to pummel the president with a series of punches: “Same-sex marriage is turning into a test of character and leadership for President Obama,” she wrote. “Does he favor it, or doesn’t he? In the wake of Vice President Biden’s remarks supportive of marriage equality, the continued presidential equivocation makes Obama look weak and evasive”.
The greatest fear of this president is that his façade of strength will be melted away by the heated disapproval of his own supporters to reveal just how weak he really is. Marcus’ uppercut was followed by this gut punch, “The longer Obama waits, the worse he looks. The President’s first stall tactic, that he is ‘evolving’ on the issue, doesn’t cut it anymore.” She finally throws the knock-out punch: “…doesn’t evolution imply change? And if you think perhaps he’s still conflicted — well, that’s hardly an advertisement to be leader of the free world. At this point, Obama’s reticence is looking cowardly.” Being criticized by Fox News is one thing, being pummeled by fellow liberals is more than the president can endure. It’s like learning your wife is seeing another man.
So, just what is it that Obama supports? Homosexuality is an act of immorality. It is immoral by the standard of natural law, “men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another”, (Romans 1:27) and it violates God’s moral law. The Apostle Paul lists the offenses that will earn eternal separation from God. “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders.” (1 Cor. 6:9) If the leader of the free world will step out and support the immoral behavior of homosexuality, is he also willing to support adultery, fornication, and polygamy?
These forms of immorality will eventually destroy a family, a church and finally a nation. Any president who would promote that which would destroy us has no right to be the leader. This utterly contradicts the intent of our founding fathers who founded this country on Christian principles. We’ve had many presidents who participated in immoral behavior, from lying to staining a blue dress, but we have had none to blatantly verbalize that such immoral behavior should be accepted as the norm. The president’s evolution on the immoral practice of homosexuality simply mirrors the evolution in our society toward sexual depravity. We must ask ourselves the question: Does the president’s evolution toward the acceptance of homosexuality indicate that our society’s evolutionary slide to Gomorrah is complete?
