How Obama Became "The First Gay President" and "Remade America"

Candidate, then President Obama always spoke of how he would "remake America." 

It's been a decade since Newsweek magazine ran a cover story declaring Barack Obama to be our nation's "first gay president."

Four days earlier President Obama affirmed his support of so-called "same-sex marriage" on Good Morning America.

It was a radical reversal from statements he made about marriage during his 2008 presidential campaign.

Did he outright lie? Or did he change his mind?  Or, as the progressives like to say--"evolve?"

God knows.

But we now know the consequences of his decision. 

Be informed, not misled...again.

Newsweek's May 21, 2012 issue had not yet hit the newsstands or the internet before Sullivan was telling the world that Obama's support brought him to tears. 

He said in part, "I do not know how orchestrated this was, and I do not know how calculated it is. What I know is that, absorbing the news, I was uncharacteristically at a loss for words for a while, didn't know what to write, and, like many Dish readers, there are tears in my eyes."

He continued, "The interview changes no laws; it has no tangible effect. But it reaffirms for me the integrity of this man we are immensely lucky to have in the White House. Obama's journey on this has been like that of many other Americans when faced with the actual reality of gay lives and gay relationships. Yes, there was politics in a lot of it. But not all of it. I was in the room long before the 2008 primaries when Obama spoke to the mother of a gay son about marriage equality. He said he was for equality, but not marriage. Five years later, he sees--as we all see--that you cannot have one without the other. But even then, you knew he saw that woman's son as his equal as a citizen. It was a moment--way off the record at the time--that clinched my support for him."

Concluding Sullivan said, "Today Obama did more than make a logical step. He let go of fear. He is clearly prepared to let the political chips fall as they may. That's why we elected him."

Vice President Biden immediately grabbed a microphone and claimed Obama had supported same-sex "marriage" for a long time even though he had said earlier he did not support it, but he---Joe Biden---had pushed the president to go public with his support of the LGBTQ agenda by telling the public President Obama actually did support redefining marriage.

In defiance of at least 6000 years of history, and the teaching of every major religion in the world.

President Obama knowingly or unknowingly overplayed his hand when he chose to boldly promote same-sex marriage in 2012. He misjudged not only the ripple effect that this dishonorable decision would have upon millions of families who do not share his progressive ideology, but also the intensity with which zealous crusaders within his own party would soon seek to indoctrinate children with the diseased dogma of gender neutrality. 

Obama deliberately and unashamedly subverted the historic and time-honored institution of marriage between a man and a woman. The deplorable attempt to redefine marriage opened a pandora’s box, clearly emboldening those who have made it their mission to erase gender distinctions in our society wherever possible.

Meanwhile, activists continue to aggressively proselytize children with their alternative religion of gender neutrality and same-sex education. The disturbing headlines speak volumes: “National Science Teaching Association Holds Seminar Instructing Teachers on How to ‘Queer Your Classroom.’” 

Many K-12 school district officials and teachers have been deceived. They assume that promoting same-sex education and gender neutrality is a sign of enlightenment, and they feel driven to convince children and teenagers that biology is in fact bigotry whenever biological sex is equated with gender. 

No Left Turn in Education founder and president Dr. Elana Fishbein told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the NSTA has “ completely abandoned its educational mission to promote political ideology cloaked as "inclusivity.”

“It is no wonder that America’s students score pitifully lower in science and math than many countries,” she added.

Yesterday PBS reported that "The new 'Nation's Report Card' is out and the results are grim. Test scores are at their lowest level in decades, with steep declines in both reading and math proficiency in nearly every state."

Although PBS tries to blame most of our failing education system on the pandemic, most parents know it has been in free fall long before the pandemic.

There's a major pushback. And it's growing.

Parents today are appalled by teachers who cleverly spoon-feed the progressive poison of gender neutrality into the impressionable hearts and minds of young students. And a growing number of parents are not quietly sitting on the sideline. As Brandon Showalter recently reported: “Parents offer advice on fighting back against gender indoctrination as schools become ‘ground zero.’” And Moms for Liberty is a courageous group of Americans on the frontline of this critical battle. 

Jeff Greenfield penned an op-ed earlier this year titled: “Democrats are Losing the Culture War. A Messaging Shift Won’t Save Them.”

Dan Delzell wrote in the Christian Post, "Speaking of messaging, candidate Obama carefully crafted the exact message about marriage he wanted to convey prior to the 2008 presidential election. While speaking at the Saddleback Presidential Forum in 2008, Obama said: “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian — for me — as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.” And Obama stated in an interview with MTV in 2008: “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”

Continuing Delzell says, "Cloaking yourself in religious terminology at convenient moments is typical of false prophets. Some people undoubtedly voted for Obama because they believed him when he said he was not in favor of gay marriage. He placed his hand on the Bible while being sworn into office, but then trampled on Scripture by coming out in support of same-sex marriage."

The Takeaway

Dan Delzell concludes, 

"President Obama led the charge to embed same-sex marriage into the cultural DNA of our nation. But Obama’s unrighteous decision backfired. A sleeping giant has been awakened to stand up, expose and reject the pernicious indoctrination efforts taking place today. Most parents in America do not want their children inculcated with the harmful gender ideology promoted by progressive politicians, radicalized school officials and teachers, and liberal elites in the media and in Hollywood." 

Obama’s reckless assault on marriage did incalculable damage to the fabric of our nation. And as the tsunami of righteous anger and parental participation continues to intensify, we are reminded that each one of us is responsible for the doctrines and practices we endorse, and the consequences that ensue.

Scripture describes the tragic consequences when the truth of God is exchanged for a lie. 

We are now living through those consequences. May God help us.
