The following excerpt is from Obama’s speech at the Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington D.C. yesterday (Transcript here):
“You will see a time in which we as a nation finally recognize relationships between two men or two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman.”
Obama has tried to come off as a person who merely wants the homosexual to be treated fairly, which most of us also desire. But that fair treatment is taken a step further into biblical compromise when Obama clearly equates their relationships as the same as a relationship between a man and a woman. Outside of the Bible this doesn’t really mean anything, but when one calls himself a Christian, certain expectations are present – and that is the expectation that a Christian believes what the bible says!
President Obama shows his disdain for the scriptures by calling upon us all to admire that which God calls an abomination and shameful:
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.” Romans 1:26-27
This isn’t the first time that Obama has shown contempt at biblical commandments. At least he’s consistent to what he wrote in his best-selling book, “The Audacity of Hope.” In that book he considers the verses above in Romans as “obscure” while somehow hinting that the Sermon on the Mount supports homosexual civil unions.
“I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitations or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.” p 222.

He goes on to say in that same book on homosexuality:
“I was reminded that no matter how much Christians who oppose homosexuality may claim that they hate the sin but love the sinner, such a judgment inflicts pain on good people — people who are made in the image of God, and who are often truer to Christ’s message than those who condemn them.” p 223
These are the words of a man chosen to be PRESIDENT of the USA! If a man believes that hating the sin instead of the sinner is still hurtful, then that says it all as far as his work regarding homosexuality is concerned. His heart rules instead of God’s word and we can imagine that all of his work for the gay community as president will be centered upon not “hurting” the homosexual. His poor theology will guide decisions in the White House. That will affect the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), the DADT (Don’t Ask Don’t Tell), the human rights bills, same-sex marriage and on and on. That’s why it’s so important that we don’t separate what a man personally believes about God from his work life.
Now that the honeymoon may appear to be over and people aren’t falling all over Obama as they once were, perhaps now they can see that Obama is not the man of God that he calls himself to be. Calling abominable acts of perversion as admirable will make anyone who loves the Bible wonder how this man can call himself a Christian!
