President Obama's Support for Homosexual Agenda and Abortion Highlighted on his Website

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Our new President has posted on the White House website his plan to move the gay rights agenda forward. He has included his plan to expand abortion.

The President is quoted on the website above the section titled, "Support For the LGBT Community," saying, "Too often the issue of LGBT rights is exploited by those seeking to divide us. But at its core, this issue is about who we are as Americans."

This is a statement often made by pro-homosexual activists as they attempt to re-engineer our culture and redesign marriage and the family. Indeed it is, at its core, who we as Americans really are---and what we believe.

If you do not embrace the homosexual lifestyle and agenda feeling the Bible teaches against it and calls it sin and perversion, you are said to be intolerant, bigoted and in this case, a divider.

Focus on The Family is saying, "This is the most bold and comprehensive pro-homosexual, abortion-friendly administration agenda we've seen."

The President has included several things he is going to do for the homosexual movement and the abortion industry.

Marriage and The Homosexual Agenda

1. He is going to expand federal "hate crimes" legislation to include more and stiffer penalties.

2. He supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and wants to expand the anti-discrimination laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity. This will have significant impact on hiring practices, particularly churches and other Christian ministry organizations.

3. He supports civil unions and will work to make them beneficially equal to traditional marriage, thus diminishing the unique status of traditional, biblical marriage which has been the social norm for more than 5000 years. Also, undermining the position that marriage is between one man and one woman.

4. He will work to repeal the "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA) which defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

5. He will repeal the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" military policy regarding homosexuals in the military, even though federal law states that homosexuality is incompatible with military service.

6. He will expand adoption rights for homosexuals. His site says Obama thinks, "that a child will benefit from a healthy and loving home, whether the parents are gay or not."


On his website under, "The Agenda---Women," is a statement noting the President's support for abortion rights. He is described as the, "Consistent, champion of reproductive choice," and promises to stand against any effort to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Note that since Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand, more than 45,000,000 babies have been aborted.

The site also affirms Obama will increase funding for, "Family planning and comprehensive sex education." That means he is going to give Planned Parenthood a raise and keep his promise to them, which includes promising them the first bill he will sign will be the so-called, "Freedom of Choice Act." This bill will remove essentially every restrictive law, federal and state, on abortions.

Personal concern

I have many concerns. The President has made many promises to many people about many issues. As he attempts to move his economic plan forward, there is going to be more than a little objection to some of it because there are those who do not want to move America further toward socialism. As his agenda in this area and perhaps others as well, stalls, for the sake of accomplishing the most possible in his first hundred days, he may even accelerate his agenda where marriage, family and life is concerned, because these issues are not primarily economic and could be moved more quickly.

In fact, many are expecting the immediate repeal of the "Mexico City Policy" even though 77 members of Congress have asked him to keep the policy in place. The policy prevents US funds from supporting abortion overseas.

This is not a time for people of faith to grow weary or fearful. It is also not a time to be silent. It is not a time for internal strife and disunity. It is a time to speak and to live out the Judeo-Christian principles that have made this the greatest country, with the greatest mission, in the history of the world.

  1. Thank you, Gary. You continue to lay it on the line. Thanks for taking the heat and staying true to your and my convictions. I was thinking of when Joshua said choose this day who you will serve.

  2. I am so amazed as to how naive Pre. Obama is!! To 'us' in the Christian world, it's all common sense to want to stay within God's basic principles; honor life, authentic marriages, etc. To keep families strong via children in a man and women type marriages. Obama 'says' that he is a Christian, but, obviously he is among those who are being 'duped' into this ultra liberal thinking! I hate to think that the 'rest' of us will be in minority now, and I already miss our Pre. Bush who 'stayed the course' with his convictions and who stayed within God's principles. He said he kept his covictions, and I concur--bless him! OH, how will we 'adjust' to all the changes being made by this liberal type changes? If we are labeled as being 'intolerant', surely there must be some way to turn this around and stay the course staying within God's principles--and being 'respected' for doing so!

  3. It's already been reported by The Associated Press that President Barack Obama plans to sign an executive order ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option. In other words, he is going back on his promise to support policies that reduce abortions as he is effectively guaranteeing more abortions by funding groups that promote abortion as a method of population control. Our worst fears before and during the presidential election are now coming to realization.

  4. President Obama has just lifted the ban on federal funding of organizations such as Planned Parenthood who promote and preform abortions internationally. Now hundreds of millions of dollars from US tax payers will be spent in expanding abortions world wide.

    This comes one day after the 36th anniversay of Roe v. Wade.

    No he his keeping his campaign promise to overturn the so-called Mexico City "gag" rule. While you may be opposed to this, those of use who voted for him support and expected it.

  6. yes, those who voted for this guy, and are pro-life--how do you feel about this, and are you going to do something about this--like, write to him and object to these horrible decissions that he is making!?

  7. To anonymous at 10:31 am:

    If you want to avoid being labeled as intolerant, do not demand that others live by your religious values. You can remain true to your religious values without demanding that everyone else has to adhere to them, too.

  8. Gary,

    Is it the "homosexual agenda" or is it Civil Rights for ALL Americans rather than only those those that you and certain kinds of relgious people approve???? Sounds like you are choosing to you to use inflammatory language to further an ideological agenda - rather than build people up through truth in Christ.


  9. The Propaganda: what Gary wrote.

    The Reality: On Wednesday my husband of 18 years unexpectedly died. I found him 30 minutes after I had just talked with him about what we should have for breakfast.

    If it weren't for the domestic partnership laws of Washington I would be a risk of being thrown out on the street, or having his assets stolen by some shirt-tail relative regardless of our wills and intents.

    Shame on you, shame on you.

  10. All of our work that is contrary
    to God works against our economy.

    Let's pray against the deception
    that's been working against America. It appears that many don't know what's behind their decisions and actions.

    To work so hard and to spend so much to fix something that we work
    so hard and spend so much against
    doesn't add up.

    We have to get God's economy going. Let's write President Obama. He said he would listen.

  11. As we write the President about the things wherein America has been going against the will of God, and thereby our own spiritual
    (and economic) restoration, let's
    resolve to have on the whole armor
    of God.

    Righteousness is the heart of the
    matter and the scriptures are filled with it. Let's remind him
    of the righteous gift of God, the
    gospel of peace, the wonderful mercies of our Lord, truth, salvation, faith, love, prayer, etc.

    Let's determine to share the good
    news of Jesus. This is warfare. It's a test, for me an open book
    test and I want to do well.

  12. Vishanti,

    There are so many things I'd like to say to you... So many things I 100% disagree with you on... So many things I'd like to point out, dispute, question, etc... But for now, I'm just going to say that I'm sorry for you loss. It's always difficult to lose a close friend, and I pray that our Lord comforts as you grieve.


  13. Christopher,

    I believe that you're sincere in your condolences. It's unfortunate that your words demean Oshtur's relationship by referring to his husband of 18 years only as a 'close friend'.

    Perhaps that was unintentional, but I suspect it was an interjection of your personal beliefs. Oshtur lost a life partner and everything that goes with that, not a bowling buddy.

    'Oshtur lost a life partner and everything that goes with that, not a bowling buddy"

    I can't believe you said this to a person who just heard about a loss and spoke to it from his heart n a heart felt and HONEST understanding . You spoke in condemnation and gotcha for him not following your morality and then interjecting your steretypical low view of his intention and heart .

    Yes husband , life partner , my wife is my best friend .

    Shame on you

  15. Oshtur...

    I cannot fathom the pain you are going through with the loss of your husband. I'm so very sorry. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

    Tony in Seattle

  16. Oshtur,

    Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one. My heart breaks for you. Remember to keep your health high on your priorities as you navigate the immediate future - grief is so enervating, and you must remain strong.

    We love you here. Blessings.

  17. Folks, now is not the time and this is not the venue to argue about Oshtur's loved one or the reactions to Oshtur's loss, or use this passing to score points. I, and I think we, recognize Oshtur as a regular here and join me and a few previous posters in extending grace, sympathy, the healing and compassion of Christ who became human and suffered as we do, and literally peace and quiet to our friend - opponent to some, friend to all - and this venue.
