President Obama Wishes *You* a Happy Homosexual Fathers’ Day!

It’s true.

The President has asked all Americans to observe this month, so if you’re an American, this means he is asking you to do so.

In a proclamation posted on the White House web site, he writes:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2010 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.  I call upon all Americans to observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exists.

Earlier in the proclamation he detailed all the things he has done on behalf of these favored citizens:

Across my Administration, openly LGBT employees are serving at every level. . . .

My Administration has advanced our journey by signing into law the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which strengthens Federal protections against crimes based on gender identity or sexual orientation.  We renewed the Ryan White CARE Act, which provides life saving medical services and support to Americans living with HIV/AIDS, and finally eliminated the HIV entry ban.  I also signed a Presidential Memorandum directing hospitals receiving Medicare and Medicaid funds to give LGBT patients the compassion and security they deserve in their time of need, including the ability to choose someone other than an immediate family member to visit them and make medical decisions.

In other areas, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a series of proposals to ensure core housing programs are open to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  HUD also announced the first ever national study of discrimination against members of the LGBT community in the rental and sale of housing.  Additionally, the Department of Health and Human Services has created a National Resource Center for LGBT Elders.

And he talks about all the things he’d like to do in the future:

Much work remains to fulfill our Nation’s promise of equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.  That is why we must give committed gay couples the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple, and repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.  We must protect the rights of LGBT families by securing their adoption rights, ending employment discrimination against LGBT Americans, and ensuring Federal employees receive equal benefits.  We must create safer schools so all our children may learn in a supportive environment.  I am also committed to ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” so patriotic LGBT Americans can serve openly in our military, and I am working with the Congress and our military leadership to accomplish that goal.

So there you have it. President Obama taking credit for all he has done to normalize the open practice of sexual deviancy in our society, as well as measures he’d like to take in the future to further normalize it, including “creat[ing] safer schools so all our children may learn in a supportive environment.”

I wonder if he’d like to require private schools to be “safer” in this way?

And I wonder where all this is going and how long it will be until gets there.

Some considerations from the Holy See here, and here, and here.

Still, the President’s request that *you* celebrate Gay Pride this month remains.

What do you think about that?

He does have a talent for flipping people the one-fingered salute, doesn’t he?

So you have to get two father’s day cards for your fathers. Happy fathers’day.

I read through the comments on the paper’s web site. I am saddened. So much blindness. I’ve never understood the idea that someone who disagrees with me is hateful, let alone felt the need to call them a “terrorist” because they disagreed. On the other hand, I do know what irrational hate looks like. It’s not uncommon. I fight it in myself. I need the great physician.

God Please have mercy on America. What a disgrace that we have gone this far. Homosexuality is a SIN.

Homosexuality is a temptation. A temptation is not a sin; giving in to a temptation is a sin.

“Homosexuality” is a weasel word. People use to mean “orientation” when it’s useful, and “activity” when it’s useful in hopes of blurring together the terms.
If they really were the same thing, they would of course be not insane but commitable, since they could not control themselves and posed a threat to themselves or others.
