Many have criticized him for missing the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington. The truth is that others have missed it. The following link has information about recent presidents. Although I don’t trust the source completely, it’s probably ok on this subject:
If I were President, I would have been at Arlington.
How is Mr. Obama unique? I know he did the same thing last year, but it doesn’t make him any less exclusive.
Last Wednesday, Mr. Obama declared June “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. He is the first president to issue such a proclamation.
Mr. Obama has taken us to a new moral low the last two years.
It is true that Bill Clinton declared June of 2000 “Gay and Lesbian Pride Month.” Mr. Obama has gone farther. There are two differences. The first difference is the additional inclusions of Mr. Obama. The second is the timing. Mr. Clinton waited until Memorial Day was over (June 2nd) to make his declaration. Mr. Obama had no problem making his proclamation before Memorial Day.
Not only has Mr. Obama made it clear that our military will help create a “new international order,” he is working hard to break yet another barrier. His declaration is no surprise. The timing is no accident. He wants the United States military to welcome homosexuals.
Mr. Obama wants to welcome into the military those who openly sin against the God of Creation. We already have homosexuals in the courts, in Congress, and in the pulpits. The shock has worn off for many.
The homosexual “community” has decided their behavior is a human right. Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama agree that it is. They are wrong. It is not a right. It is a possibility. Homosexuality is a possibility because humans have free will. Homosexuality is a sin. I don’t think this because I don’t like homosexuals. I believe this because God’s Word says it.
Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama both call themselves Christians. How is it possible to be a Christian and continually be in disobedience to God’s Holy Word? I think they both know about the following words and choose to think that their ways are higher than God’s Ways:
22Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,
27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,
29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,
30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;
32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
These are the last words in the first chapter of Romans. They are as clear as can be.
No president has ever been perfect. All men are sinful. However, no previous president has dared push the limits of God’s moral law this far. It is an indicator of our culture’s tolerance of sin.
Will America awaken? Will we turn from our sin or will things get worse?
We have been on a steady spiritual decline until the last twenty years. Since then, things have gotten exponentially worse. There were huge negative blips on the radar in 1962 and 1973. In 2010, the blips seem to be a daily occurrence.
May God have mercy on us.
