TO TAKE ON THE IMPOSSIBLE.
OBAMA IN A QUANDARY.
If there was anyone ever missing a point, it was President Barack Obama; and also my friend "mikelong", who blogged on Hubpages online.
Both of them think that homosexuality happens to be a good thing, while others are seriously asking about its purpose, because they see none.
However, that is where the difference lies, that heterosexual life has an ordained purpose and that is to give life; pro-creation it is called. Homosexuality completely lacks any moral objective.
Even, that is not the point. The point is equating it with heterosexual life style, when the two are diametrically and morally opposite each other.
The other point is the excuse that same-sex marriage will extend rights to all people, irrespective of the fact that it is not an issue of one section of society depriving another section of its civil rights.
"I want everyone treated fairly in this country. We have never gone wrong when we've extended rights and responsibilities to everybody," and "....that he believes marriage equality "strengthens families." " (CNN, 5/15/12).
If all that isn't hogwash, nothing is. That is insulting people's intelligence.
He goes farther to insinuate that one of his goals under a second term will include the repeal of the Defense Of Marriage Act, a statute that has been put in place to protect society and the family; but why?
It is almost like saying that he does not want a second term, because when it comes to homosexual "marriage", 80% of Americans are against it; and will vote to overthrow it. If so, how does he get around that to win his reelection bid?
What the first African American president is setting before the country now is not a political issue. It is a moral issue; and because of that he will lose the support of those on the side of morality.
Nobody is impinging on the rights of anybody; and he must be the first to know that; acknowledging that he has been able to become the president of the United States. No one can do so, if one is not smart.
However, to morally transform America is "biting off more than he could chew." and it is very disappointing to see him strain under such a heavy burden. It is just like taking on the impossible.
Many Americans will refuse to take the same stance as he on the issue in question; that redefining marriage must not be part of his agenda. It will divide the country, rather than uniting it.
This blog has supported Obama to the hilt. Yet, when it came to the destruction of the institution of marriage, that support has to be withdrawn.
Homosexuals can do whatever they like; but the perversion of marriage will not, and must not, be allowed; because that is what it amounts to. It is not that anyone wants to restrain them from enjoying their life style(s).
P.S. Staying at home in protest on election day, 2012, will be the best and the right thing to do. Just mark it on the wall.
