A few days ago, I wrote about Barack Obama’s desire to force our military Chaplains to violate their conscience and religious convictions by marrying homosexuals and lesbians in military service. His actions and words are a demonstration of his clear intent to circumvent the Constitution, override fundamental religious freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment, and impose his will on all Americans.
Circumventing the Constitution is worse than ignoring the Constitution. It implies intent, and is a violation of his oath of office and an impeachable offense. He is to be under the constraints of the Constitution, not above it. He is sworn to uphold it, not ignore it or circumvent it.
His actions in his first 4 years as President brought in to focus what he meant by ‘hope and change’ by which he deceived the electorate in 2008. But in case you need further evidence…
Obama supported legalizing so called same-sex marriage when he first ran for the Illinois Senate in 1996 but ‘modified’ his view to get elected to the U.S. Senate, and again as a candidate for the Presidency in 2008. It was clearly a political move based on the knowledge that counterfeit marriage was not supported by the majority of Americans, including Illinoians.
On May 15, 2008, Obama sought to shore up his liberal base by announcing his opposition to California’s Proposition 8 on the basis of ‘equality’ and hid his real view on the oxymoron of SSM by expediently saying he personally believed that marriage was between a man and a woman only.
After his 2008 election he openly supported ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in regard to homosexuals and lesbians serving in the military.
On Feb 23, 2011, Obama instructed the Justice Department to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, passed unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed into law in 1996 by President Bill Clinton…again, a violation of his oath of office.
DOMA mandates that the federal government not recognize ‘same-sex marriages’ and that states not be forced to recognize such ‘marriages’ from other states.
The real Barack Obama — the radical community organizer who walked in the footsteps of radical activists such as Sol Alinsky and Bill Ayres – had quietly resurfaced to accomplish his personal agenda for all Americans; demonstrating that he had no respect for the U.S. Constitution if it got in the way of his plan to re-engineer America to his liking. Neither did he respect nor hold to his oath of office to uphold the laws of the land. To the contrary, his actions clearly signal his intention to foist on all Americans his misguided vision of a top down, government controlled nation that would do his bidding, even if it meant violating the Constitution he swore to uphold.
On May 9, 2012, Obama publically stated in an ABC interview that he now supports gay marriage.
Since his re-election his new found conviction has led him back to his activist role encouraging democrat legislators in the Illinois State Legislature to support a same sex marriage bill during their lame duck session. That effort however, ran into serious opposition and floundered at the last hour as democrat legislators saw they did not have the support of their constituents on this issue.
Not even his black brothers in Illinois would tolerate his efforts to destroy marriage. On January 29th a coalition of African American pastors called on Illinois legislators to pass a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage, defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. They also made it clear that so called ‘gay marriage’ was not a civil right as claimed by Obama and the radical left, and would “fight it vehemently.”
Obama’s agenda does not apply to a ‘social justice’ redistribution of wealth only. It includes a socio/political plan to re-engineer our values, beliefs, and behavior. It will destroy our freedom of speech and conscience, with a political correctness that parallels that of Nazi Germany, and the former Soviet Union.
Obama’s vision – if not rejected – by we the people, will destroy America. Unfortunately, it is a plan that so called ‘Progressives’ in the democrat party support; the same group in Congress that refuses to face the economic calamity to befall us all if they continue the out of control spending of this President and the party he leads.
The battle to save America must be fought in our churches, schools, counties, legislatures, and congress – before the next election – by men and women who know the truth, and will not stop proclaiming it, as is their right. When Christian America catches that vision and if mobilized, it will lead to the restoration of America as a nation “Under God.”
