On his 100th day in office, President Obama said the, "Work of remaking America is well underway."
Indeed it is. Incrementally, he is moving the gay agenda forward while telling America he supports marriage as between a man and a women.
He publicly proclaims to be a Christian, but ignores the National Day of Prayer. Yet has a homosexual celebration scheduled for the East Wing of the White House this coming Monday.
And when will we know the homosexual community has "equality"? The answer may be different than you think. It all depends on what equality is.
The New York Times reported Wednesday that, "Lawyers for President Obama are quietly drafting first-of-their kind guidelines barring workplace discrimination against transgender federal employees..."
The Times said the White House has not done much to advertise the provisions of the policy and Mr. Obama did not mention it in last week's announcement of gay benefits expansion, even though work on this new executive order is well under way.
John Berry, openly gay director of the Office of Personnel, said this was one of his goals when he accepted the job, and that no, the administration was not trying to hide it's work on this matter.
These guidelines, created by executive order of the President likely announced soon, will then be integrated into the guidelines of the federal handbook for managers. Who knows what the social implications on this action will be?
Will federal employees now have non-gender restrooms?
Transgenderism is the height of confusion.
Recently, Library of Congress lost a discrimination case after rescinding it's hiring of a former Army Special Forces commander, David Schreor, as a terrorist analyst, after learning he was undergoing a sex change. The Library felt it would be difficult for he/she to qualify for vital security clearances in a timely fashion.
The Library lost. In April, a federal judge awarded Ms. Schreor, formerly know as David, $500,000 in lost pay and damages.
The mantra from the gay activists is, "Transgenders deserve to be treated with respect and dignity."
Everyone deserves respect and dignity. Even Christians.
But why is there such a need to elevate these kinds of behavior by a small fraction of society in ways that reorder and reengineer the culture?
You will recall that President Obama failed to recognize the annual National Day of Prayer, yet has invited homosexual leaders to the East Wing of the White House for a celebration on Monday. They will be celebrating what most homosexual activists regard as the birth of their movement---the Stonewall Riots of June 28, 1969.
Incrementally, piece by piece, the President moves the gay agenda forward. They have been very upset recently that the President has not been moving fast enough on their agenda. And they have not been suffering silently. These moves should get him through another week--6 or 7 more news cycles with his friends in the homosexual community.
But where does it end? "Full Equality," they say. But what is full equality? How will we know when we get there?
Full equality may be something very different than what you think.
In a statement and declaration titled, "Beyond Marriage," first published July 26, 2006, and still being actively circulated, the authors say they wish to offer friends and colleagues within the gay community, "A new vision for securing government and private institutional recognition of diverse kinds of partnerships, households, kinship relationships and families. In doing so, we hope to move beyond the narrow confines of marriage politics as they exist in the United States today."
So, they don't just want gay marriage, they want government and private recognition. They want the government and the citizens to embrace their lifestyle---which defines them.
This was communicated in President Obama's declaration that the entire month of June would be Gay Pride Month. We would not just accept it, but would celebrate it.
Some activists attempt to down play the importance of this document, however I believe it represents the core agenda of the homosexual activist movement.
They want to abolish marriage as we know it.
The statement says they want the government to define as "legitimate families" :
* Committed, loving households in which there is more than one conjugal partner. (Group Marriage).
*Queer couples who decide to jointly create and raise a child with another queer person or couple, in two households.
Think about that for a moment.
"Marriage," they say, "is not the only worthy form of family relationship, and should not be legally and economically privileged above all others."
Clearly "equality" means something other than "equal to."
These are defining days in our American culture. There are those who are overtly pushing the culture toward a place that deconstructs marriage and the family. There are those who say they support natural marriage and family values, but act in ways that undermine those institutions. There are those who in fact believe in the institutions of natural marriage and family, but feel they should not become involved in the politics of it all.
And there are those who believe in natural marriage, traditional family and Judeo-Christian values and principles and believe they are responsible to occupy and take action until He returns.
To you, I say thank you and God bless you.
