Obama to Create Monument to Homosexuals
The Washington Post says, "President Obama is poised to declare the first-ever national monument recognizing the struggle for gay rights..."
The national monument will be what is now a small park like area in New York City that, according to the plan, will be transferred to the federal government National Park Service, then immediately President Obama will designate it as a National Park, then declare it a Monument to Homosexuals.
The president hopes to make this happen next month, which he annually declares to be, "Gay Rights Month," or whatever he calls it.
We all know why the big push to do this---it's to affirm and remove the stigma--- but should they memorialize sexual behavior in the same way that, say, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s church or home or jail cell is memorialized?
Is sexual behavior really equivalent to ethnicity?
The Washington Post says other monuments and parks recognize iconic landscapes or historic sites from centuries ago, this park in Greenwich Village will "be the first national monument anchored by a dive bar and surrounded by a warren of narrow streets that long have been regarded the historic center of gay cultural life in New York City."
This is a first for America.
The site for the homosexual monument park is across the street from the Stonewall Inn, a gathering place for gay men in the 1960s, a place where homosexuals rioted against the police, and now claim was the birth place of the modern "gay rights movement."
Sally Jewell, Obama's Interior Secretary, Jonathan B. Jarvis, National Park Service Director and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) are all on board and ready to strike.
They are holding a "listening session" on Monday, May 9, so Obama can make the declaration in June.
The Post says, "But the path to declaring the monument has been a complicated one, largely because the site involves private property and a dense urban area where land-use planning is never simple."
One other complication is that city officials are still investigating the history of the land title.
However, there are other and more significant complications that are unrelated to land use, titles, and zoning.
The Post notes the urgency: "The decision to recognize a critical moment in the fight for gay rights, at a time when politicians in several states are moving to strip away legal protections for transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual residents, enjoys considerable support within the administration."
Indeed. If Bill Clinton was the "first black president" as he and others have said, Barack Obama would certainly be the "first homosexual president."
The president, David Stacy, with the homosexual Human Rights Campaign, the Gill Foundation, a major cash source for the homosexual movement including to help defeat elected officials who believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and others, stand poised for this event.
Stacy says this will say to homosexuals, "You don't have to stay in the closet."
Gill Foundation president and chief executive Courtney Cuff, whose group has helped move this plan forward, believes this will be a great indoctrination tool---"interpreters will be talking to visitors about the LGBT community and the contributions of the LGBT community..." he says.
Mr. Hoylman, who lives in the neighborhood with his "husband," told the Post, "It's breathtaking how far we've come, in so short a time."
It is breathtaking---especially for those Christians and conservatives who have been ensconced in cultural slumber for the past 8 years.
Yesterday, more than half our nation prayed for God's forgiveness and deliverance from our national and personal sins. The theme of the National Day of Prayer was, "Wake Up America."
I believe God heard and will answer those prayers. I also believe there is the beginning of an awakening in this country.
Monuments have been a part of the human experience since Creation.
The thoughts, the beliefs, the aspirations of our Founders are seen to this day on the monuments and buildings of our Capitol in Washington DC.
Some of the most important monuments, buildings, and landmarks in Washington DC include religious Christian words, symbols, and imagery.
In the United States Capitol itself, the declaration, "In God we Trust," is prominently displayed in both the United States House and Senate Chambers.
On the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial are not only numerous Bible verses and religious acknowledgments carved on memorial blocks in the walls including phrases like "Holiness to the Lord" (Ex. 28:26; 30:30; Is. 23:18, Zechariah 14:20) but "Search the Scriptures" (John 5:39) is boldly engraved in the stone.
Today, America's president is using his executive power---that of the most powerful nation in the world---not to promote eternal Truth that will change the world and set people free, but an attempt to equate ethnicity with sexual behavior that the Bible declares destructive sin. He is attempting to normalize that which has never been normal.
This year America celebrates 240 years since our forefathers Declared our Independence.
The basis of that Declaration was the authority of God's Word.
For 240 years, America has memorialized Godly biblical principles and values as our identity---in our laws, our institutions, and our culture---and we have built monuments to that identity.
We have set aside lands to memorialize the historic events in our journey toward liberty and a more perfect union---lands that reflect the beauty of God's handiwork.
When historians sweep away the dust of time, will they find monuments to biblically forbidden sexual behavior defining the times in which we live? And, I might add, monuments to the killing of our unwanted babies?
Or will they find a people who stood firm in the faith that gave birth to the greatest nation in the history of the world ?
And much more important than history's judgment, is the judgment of God Himself.
This is a time to awaken, not sleep. To stand, not sit. To speak, not be silent---a time to continue to pray.
God help us.
