Homosexuals give Obama standing ovation

Christine Simmons – Associated Press Writer – 10/11/2009 6:25:00 AM WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama was given a hero’s welcome last night as he addressed the nation’s most powerful homosexual group.

The estimated crowd of three thousand homosexuals and supporters attending the annual dinner of the Human Rights Campaign gave Obama a standing ovation as he repeated his pledges to meet some long-standing demands of homosexual activists.

Obama restated his campaign pledge to allow homosexual men and women to serve openly in the military. ” I will end ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ he told the crowd.

He offered no timetable or specifics and he acknowledged some may be growing impatient.

“I appreciate that many of you don’t believe progress has come fast enough,” Obama said. “Do not doubt the direction we are heading and the destination we will reach.”

Some advocates said they already have heard Obama’s promises and now they want a timeline. Cleve Jones, a pioneer activist and creator of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, said Obama delivered a brilliant speech, but added “it lacked the answer to our most pressing question, which is when.”

“He repeated his promises that he’s made to us before, but he did not indicate when he would accomplish these goals and we’ve been waiting for a while now,” said Jones, national co-chair of a major gay-rights rally scheduled for Sunday on the National Mall.

Obama also called on Congress to repeal the Defense Of Marriage Act, which limits how state, local and federal bodies can recognize partnerships and determine benefits. He also called for a law to extend benefits to domestic partners.

He expressed strong support for the HRC agenda of ending discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people but stopped short of laying out a detailed plan for how to get there.

“My expectation is that when you look back on these years you will look back and see a time when we put a stop against discrimination … whether in the office or the battlefield,” Obama said

“We have never had a stronger ally in the White House. Never,” Joe Solmonese, the group’s president, said at the dinner before the president spoke.

We realize that many do not want to insert the bible into this subject, but like it or not, God does and will have something to say about. Our nation is becoming more and more evil in the things condoned by the laws our government is passing or attempting to pass. The discussion is not merely about human rights, but about the justification of sin, the violation of marriage as God made it, and evil in general.

This example of our President, and Congress, is an example of how little effect God has on the direction of our leaders. Does anyone think that the founding Fathers would have even considered such, or were they familiar with Sodom and Gomorrah.

HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney.

HELLO FOLKS:  This is also true in CANADA

 
HOORAY,  HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney. I myself have been grumbling and wondering how a handful of people have been able to take our right to pray in public places away from us. So, agreeing with Andy, I GLADLY will forward this email AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN.


Folks, this is the Month that we RE-TAKE AMERICA
********* Get  Ready *********


Keep this going around the  globe . Read it and forward every time you receive it. We  can’t give up on this issue.

Andy Rooney and  Prayer

Andy Rooney says:

I don’t believe in Santa  Claus, but I’m not going to sue somebody for singing a  Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.  I don’t agree with Darwin , but I didn’t go out and hire a lawyer when my high school  teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not  be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what’s the big deal?  It’s not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts.  They’re just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it’s a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America , a country founded on Christian principles.  According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1.  So what would  you expect — somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer…

If I went to a soccer game in  Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.

And I wouldn’t be  offended.
  It wouldn’t bother me one bit.

When in Rome   …..

But what about the atheists? Is another argument.

What about them? Nobody  is asking them to be baptized.  We’re not going to pass the collection plate.  Just humor us for 30 seconds.   If that’s asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs.  Go to the bathroom.  Visit the concession stand.  Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call.  One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do.. I don’t think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world’s foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights.  Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep.  Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing.  Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.

The  silent majority has been silent too long.  It’s time we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn’t care what they want.  It is time that the majority
Rules!   It’s time we tell them, you don’t have to pray; you don’t have to say the Pledge of Allegiance; you don’t have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him.  That is your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away.  We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN!

God bless us one and all …  Especially those who denounce Him , God  bless America , despite all her faults.  She is still the greatest nation of all. God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.


Let’s make 2009
the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions. And our military forces come home from all the wars.

Keep looking  up.

If you agree with this,  please pass it on.
If not delete  it..
