Mainstreaming Homosexuality is Only the Beginning

In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama did more to mainstream homosexuality in the United States than any person before him.  The theme of the president’s address was the continuation of our mission as a nation to make the words of the Declaration of Independence real for all of us as citizens of this great country and by insinuation our quest as a world power to share the freedoms we cherish with others around the globe.

He positioned the operative phrase seemingly harmlessly in a single sentence in one paragraph near the end of his speech where he depicted Americans as trekkers on a march through time:

It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began.  For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.  Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.  Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote.  Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.  Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia, to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm.

In that one sentence, the president elevated the “gay rights” movement in the United States by incorporating it in a litany of long enduring struggles that we face as a nation — from equal pay for women to safety and security for our children.  He began that pivotal sentence with an undisputed American principle — that all of us are equal under the law, and he ended it with a disjointed leap connecting equality under the law with the equality of love that we have for each other.

By design, absent from the president’s remarks was any hint of legitimate controversy concerning the morality of homosexual behavior, thus indicating that he believes the question has been resolved once and for all and that homosexuality is an acceptable alternate lifestyle–not a deviant way of living as our forefathers thought.  Never mind that the science on the subject doesn’t support that conclusion and that his eureka moment is little more than a leap of faith that puts him at odds with the greatest moral champion of all time–Yahweh Himself.

Symbolism was key for the president on Monday.  He took the oath of office by placing his hand on two Bibles, one owned by Martin Luther King, Jr. and the other owned by Abraham Lincoln.  Just as important, he delivered his second inaugural address on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, and he wants us to believe that like King he has been to the mountain top and that he has seen the Promised Land.

Although he didn’t actually say these words, in keeping with King’s momentous last speech, President Obama wants us to think that his eyes have seen “the glory of the coming of the LORD.”  From that privileged vantage point, some would say “delusion,” he finally realized that there is no distinction in God’s eyes between homosexuality and heterosexuality, as though the Sovereign Creator has had a change of heart.  To people of genuine faith, that way of thinking is better exemplified by Samuel L. Jackson’s use of a similar line in the movie Pulp Fiction.  He perverted the words in the Bible for personal reasons during the commission of a violent crime.

You can be sure of this: there are others waiting in the wings for their turn at the front of the “I want my rights, too” line.  For example, pedophiles think that their behavior is normal.  They want the same “rights” as homosexuals, and they believe that the day is coming when we as a nation will realize that their “rights” are sacred as well.  And they are not alone.  A group of psychologists is pushing hard right now to decriminalize pedophilia.  But it doesn’t stop with pedophiles.  No one knows how far we might go if we continue along this path.  If you think that it can’t happen here, you need to think again because it is happening right in front of our eyes.

As a nation, we elected and re-elected Barack Obama.  He is the standard bearer for deviant groups of many sorts–not just homosexuals, and in his eyes, we are the enemy because we resist his efforts to remake our nation in his image.  In a nutshell, we are responsible for the path this country has taken because we gave Obama the keys to the Oval Office.  We will lose one battle after another until we finally lose the war unless we band together and elect candidates with moral conviction and the courage to take positions based on fundamental principles about right and wrong.  Thus far, we have failed to do our job, and we don’t have much time left before the war is over.

4--Scripture of the Day

Ezekiel 43: 10-12

“As for you, son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the plan. If they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the house, its structure, its exits, its entrances, all its designs, all its statutes, and all its laws. And write it in their sight, so that they may observe its whole design and all its statutes and do them. This is the law of the house: its entire area on the top of the mountain all around shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.”

His Name is Yahweh explains why the Name of God, Yahweh, is so important.  It’s available in eBook format and in paperback.

  • God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘Yahweh, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This [Yahweh] is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.” (Exodus 3: 15)
  • “Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.” (Jeremiah 16: 21)
  • “Behold, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely; and this is His name by which He will be called, ‘Yahweh our righteousness.’” (Jeremiah 23: 5-6)
  • Yeshua said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” (John 8: 58)

Caroline Glick: Bye-bye London—After participating last week in a debate in London about Israeli communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines organized by the self-consciously pretentious Intelligence Squared debating society, I can now say from personal experience that Amis is correct. The public atmosphere in England regarding Israel is ugly and violent.

Shmuley Boteach: Why Bibi is Not Intimidated by Obama—I’m sure Jeffrey Goldberg got it right. Whatever the reason the President leaked his unhappiness with Bibi to Goldberg just a few days before the Israeli election – whether in an effort to influence the vote against Bibi, serve payback to Bibi for a perceived preference for Romney, or because the President could simply no longer suppress his…

Lori Lowenthal Marcus: Will Congress Investigate Obama’s Attempt to Derail Bibi?— Dan Senor, American author of Start Up Nation and former adviser to U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney, sent out an electrifying message on Israel’s election day, January 22, claiming that two U.S. officials in Israel quietly conceded that President Obama’s statements to Atlantic columnist Jeffrey Goldberg were an intentional effort to hurt Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu in the election. If what Senor claims is true, and President Obama was attempting to influence the Israeli election, it is possible that it could become the subject of a congressional investigation.

Barry Rubin: Obama’s Shock Speech: A Thickly Veiled Deception— President Barack Obama’s inaugural speech is fascinating, as it presents his strategies, tactics, and new political line. Let’s look at it closely.

Benny Avni: Israel’s Election Outcome—Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud-Beiteinu party is still by far the largest and is likely to head the next Israeli government. The rise of former columnist and TV star Yair Lapid was emblematic of the entire Israeli campaign – which ignored the top national-security issues the country faces. Security is still Topic A. But most Israelis pretty much agree with the way Netanyahu’s government has handled those issues: Awaken the world to the threat Iran poses, but don’t stray too far from America. Keep a low profile on the “Arab Spring,” but remain vigilant on things like the Syrian chemical weapon threat.

Herb Keinon: The Israeli Election: A Vote for Internal Change— The Israeli electorate went to the polls Tuesday and sent their leaders an unmistakable message: Change. Yair Lapid and Naftali Bennett, political novices, are the country’s poster boys for change – and they did astonishingly well. The old guard took it on the chin.

Mordechai Gilat: Israelis are no fools— Neither the prime minister nor his circle realized that the social protests had not died and that the chickens would come home to roost on election day.

Aaron David Miller: Don’t Expect an Obama-Netanyahu Blowup—The notion that a second-term president freed from the constraints of re-election will now hammer an Israeli prime minister with a big peace initiative just doesn’t add up. First, there’s no precedent for such a thing in American policy toward the Arab-Israeli negotiations. Bill Clinton’s push at Camp David in July 2000 – the precedent most often cited – came not from Clinton, but at then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s urging. Second, it’s the presence of opportunity, not the absence of political constraints, that leads a U.S. president to act.

Gabriel Scheinmann: Israel Isn’t Isolated—Israel is far from the isolated state it is made out to be. On the contrary, Israel is actually at the height of its global integration, increasingly enmeshed across diplomatic, economic and cultural fronts.

Abraham Ben-Zvi: A new beginning?— Now we can wait and see if the American and Israeli electorates have provided the catalyst to turn over a new leaf, building a relationship that is more harmonious and conciliatory.

Elhanan Miller: Assad: “I Will Win Even If Damascus Is Destroyed”—Quoting French sources, Asharq Al-Awsat quotes an exchange between Syrian President Bashar Assad and the international envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi.

David P. Goldman: Israel’s Choices and America’s Failure—It is much easier for Israel to disregard American warnings today than it was in 1967 when President Lyndon B. Johnson was genuinely sympathetic to Israel but concerned about spillover into the Cold War. Today, President Obama has nothing to lose but his illusions.

Yaakov Lappin: Is a Third Intifada Imminent?—The past two months have seen a sharp rise in the number of violent disturbances in the West Bank. Flashpoints have included Hebron, and multiple locations in the northern West Bank. The upsurge has included fire-bomb attacks, rock throwing at Israeli vehicles and IDF positions, and sporadic shootings.

The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center: Iranian Support for Palestinian Terrorist Organizations—The military capabilities of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, revealed in Operation Pillar of Defense in Gaza, were the product of massive Iranian support including an arsenal of thousands of rockets, both standard and manufactured by the terrorist organizations themselves (using Iranian technical knowhow). The massive rocket fire targeting the Israeli civilian population was made possible by Iran’s support. Iran, Islamic Jihad, and Hizbullah initiated a media campaign showering praise on Iran’s military, financial and technical support for Gaza.

Yoram Schweitzer, Olga Bogorad, and Einav Yogev: Has the Campaign in the Maghreb and in West Africa Reached a New Level?— France’s military intervention in the campaign underway in Mali is connected to the recent hostage attack in southern Algeria by the Masked Battalion, a faction that split off from al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. After ten months in which global jihadist elements succeeded in taking over the north of Mali and instituting sharia law, on the model of the Taliban in Afghanistan, France decided to send troops to Mali to assist the local army in obstructing the Islamists’ movement southward, on their way to the cities of Kona and Bamako, the capital. Yet despite the intervention by France and its allies, it appears that the campaign to liberate Mali from global jihadist elements is just beginning. The attempt to remove these organizations from the north of Mali is likely to lead to a bloody campaign throughout the country, and possibly beyond.

Washington Post Editorial: Obama’s Wishful Thinking Abroad—In his second inaugural address, President Obama suggested a barrelful of wishful thinking when he pronounced: “A decade of war is now ending.” That would come as news to the Afghan soldiers still dying at Taliban hands; to the families of more than 60,000 people killed in Syria in the past two years; to French soldiers who have taken on, in Mali, al-Qaeda affiliates who are as much enemies of the U.S. as of France; to the families of American hostages just slain in a terrorist attack in Algeria. America’s adversaries are not in retreat; they will be watching Mr. Obama in his second term to see if the same can be said of the United States.

Arnold Ages: The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations—There is a shocking, racist bigotry against Arabs that displays itself regularly in the reportage over the “Arab Spring” and Syria’s casualty count. Arabs are depicted inferentially, by the major news outlets, as being incapable of measuring up to the high expectations of international morality. The perception in the Western media is that one cannot really expect Arab nations to embrace the idea of the sanctity of life.

Khaled Abu Toameh: Study: Allow Gaza Population to Expand into Sinai—A study published Monday in Al-Quds by Palestinian engineer Mustafa al-Farra recommends solving Gaza’s “population explosion” by allowing the enclave to expand into the Sinai Peninsula, and transferring some Gaza residents to the West Bank.

Robert Spencer: Algerian Jihadists Wanted to ‘Teach the Americans What Islam Is’—Clearly the Algerian hostage-takers’ religion was important — indeed central — to their motives and goals for undertaking this savage attack; yet mainstream media coverage has followed the usual patterns, downplaying or ignoring outright what the attackers said about what they were hoping to accomplish, since these statements lead to questions about Islam that they would prefer not be asked.

Andrew G. Bostom: ‘In Context’: Muhammad Morsi’s (Islamically Correct) Jew-Hatred—Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’s own pronouncements over the past decade, as well as those of leading Muslim Brotherhood religious leaders, represent the living legacy of traditionalist Islamic Jew-hatred and jihadism. Ignoring this ugly, deeply rooted context is not only morally reprehensible, it will perpetuate current delusive U.S. policies towards Egypt which endanger regional and global security.

Christoph Sydow: Europe’s Challenge: A Terrorist Homeland in North Africa— The attack on the natural gas field in eastern Algeria proves that Western fears of terrorist operations in the region extend beyond the north of Mali, where Islamists have been in control since last year. A week ago, the French military launched “Operation Serval,” a cooperation with Malian forces to push back the Islamists. Germany and other Western allies are providing logistical support to the operation while the country’s West African allies have pledged to send troops.

Oleg Atbashian: The Collectivist Mind Game, Part 3: Demonizing Human Nature—The Marxist notion of human progress is a spiral that would return humanity to stateless, moneyless, classless, and selfless collectivism. For that purpose they must, so to speak, put the genie of individualism back into the bottle.

Michelle Malkin: Rotten to the Core: Obama’s War on Academic Standards (Part 1)—America’s downfall doesn’t begin with the “low-information voter.” It starts with the no-knowledge student.

Michael Ledeen: Food, Fascism, and Obama Rules—“Fascism” was a very successful mass movement in Western Europe for an entire generation, and it flourishes in many countries today. It behooves us to understand why it was so popular, and how most of our politics differ from it. We have fascist economics, but certainly not fascist politics or foreign policy in America today, even though there are echoes of it every so often.

14--Blessings from Revelation

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
