One of the advantages of living as long as I have, through the 1960s and 1970s, is historical memory.
I recall the very genesis of what we have come to call the “gay rights movement.”
Back in the day, homosexual activists said something that appealed to the libertarian nature of so many of us: “What we do in the privacy of our own bedrooms is nobody’s business.”
Most of us really didn’t care what people did in the privacy of their own bedrooms – as long as it wasn’t illegal. And very few of us wanted to start snooping into the bedrooms of Americans to determine whether laws were being broken.
But that was then. This is now.
Today, homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and “transgendereds” are being actively recruited to the top echelons of government precisely because of what they do in their bedrooms – and what they do is no longer nobody’s business, it’s everyone’s business.
What am I talking about?
Here you will find a recruiting agency for government officials based on their sexual proclivities. You can see a list of more than 250 open members of the so-called “LGBT” community appointed by Barack Obama’s administration to federal government policy jobs.
The institute boasts that the long list means the Obama administration has set a record for appointing more openly LGBT individuals to the federal government than all previous administrations combined.
In other words, the Obama administration has an active affirmative-action program to seek out lesbians, male homosexuals, bisexual people and “transgendereds” for top policy jobs.
It helps if you announce your unusual sexual proclivities proudly. Then you help fill the numbers quotas.
There’s an old saying in politics – “personnel equals policy.” There’s little question the so-called LGBT agenda is getting a major push through this kind of affirmative-action plan.
Is it any wonder that judges are overturning popular votes to affirm marriage as an institution between one man and one woman?
Is it any wonder that executive branch officials are disregarding duly passed laws of Congress protecting marriage?
Is it any wonder that just four years ago, Barack Obama ran on a campaign of opposing same-sex marriage and today is running on a campaign favoring it?
This is the kind of “progress” the LGBT agenda could only dream of.
But, for the rest of us, who decide what’s right and wrong based on the Bible and 6,000 years of recorded human history, this is not good news at all. In fact, it may be the most dangerous of all policies pushed by Barack Obama – and I include his intentional destruction of the economy among those.
Indeed, Barack Obama has been called the “first gay president” by media fans of his radical agenda, much as Bill Clinton was hailed, incredibly, as the “first black president.”
Let me state what should be obvious to Americans, most of whom were born into a Judeo-Christian culture: Lesbian behavior is sinful. Male homosexual activity is sinful. Bisexual activity is sinful. And changing one’s gender, either surgically or through cross-dressing, is sinful.
No one in America wanted to persecute people who engaged in this behavior in the 1960s and 1970s. No one wants to stone them today. But neither should people be given preferential treatment because they proudly proclaim their sinful activity and actively engage in evangelizing their LGBT creed.
It’s twisted. Right has become wrong. Wrong has become right. Up has become down, and black has become white. Everyone is doing what is right in his own eyes, as the Bible warned.
That’s what’s happening in America today.
That’s what’s happening in Washington today.
That’s what’s happening under Obama’s watch today – on steroids.
This is one more big reason Obama must be defeated – at all costs.
