Obama Supports DOMA Repeal

CNS News highlights the radical agenda Barack Obama has for marriage, the American family and our society in general.

In a statement on homosexual issues on Obama's campaign website, Obama says we should "fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and enact legislation that would ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex couples."

We need a Federal Marriage Amendment to prevent the overturn of the DOMA (as happened in California recently when the state Supreme Court decided it knows better than the citizens of that state, and manufactures a right for homosexuals to call their unions "marriage."

In the meantime, however, the federal DOMA may be the only thing preventing states from being forced to recognize such perversions of the concept of "marriage" in state like Massachusetts and soon California. Obama would see that barrier removed.

Some of Obama's congressional colleagues aren't ready to enter this "brave new world" with him, though.

From CNS News:

When Cybercast News Service asked Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), who has been a vocal supporter of the Obama campaign, if he could support Obama in an attempt to repeal DOMA, he replied that he could not. "No. I support the Defense of Marriage Act. Period."

Sen. Thomas Carper (D-Del.) also told Cybercast News Service that he wouldn't support the repeal of DOMA.

But that isn't the only radical societal engineering Obama has planned for the United States if he becomes president in November.

The same statement on Obama's website about homosexual issues says Obama has already cosponsored legislation to "expand federal hate crimes law to include crimes perpetrated because of sexual orientation or gender identity." Apparently prosecuting a criminal for assault or murder isn't enough; we must penalize them for their thoughts, as well.

Obama also wants to "include sexual orientation and gender identity" in workplace discrimination laws. So what if you don't want cross-dressing men working in your Christian daycare, your Christian bookstore, or your church. Your moral convictions and the impression your church/business presents must take a backseat to people's sexual proclivities.

Obama also opposes the aforementioned Federal Marriage Amendment, which would protect the institution of marriage at the Constitutional level: "Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and prevented judicial extension of marriage-like rights to same-sex or other unmarried couples." In other words, marriage would have absolutely no meaning or value whatsoever.

He would also open the door for homosexuals to serve in the U.S. military: "Obama believes we need to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The key test for military service should be patriotism, a sense of duty, and a willingness to serve." Our military, entrusted with the defense of our nation, would become a part of the entire social experiment being perpetrated on America. Men and women would be forced to share cramped, intimate quarters with those who see them as objects of sexual opportunity. Apparently national defense is a secondary consideration to the advancement of homosexuality.

No wonder Barack Obama was the #1 most liberal senator in 2007. Between his unlimited support for abortion and his desire to render marriage and family meaningless, who could possibly surpass Obama's vision of an America completely re-engineered into a liberal humanist state?

I'd just like to say, following the events of Nov. 4th, America clearly voted for him and sent a message to your bigoted thinking. Gotta love democracy. Enjoy your day.

Ironically, Anonymous, many of the same people who voted for Obama in California also voted to protect marriage and supported Proposition 8. So I don't think the "message" is nearly as clear as you imagine it.

While admitting that a mixed message was sent this election, if I had to make a deductive guess, I think the message by this obviously dichotomous vote is that either the voters (a) didn't know of Obama's radical support for the homosexual agenda, (b) knew and didn't believe it, or (c) considered the aggregate of other areas where they supported Obama to be of greater weight than their opposition to him in this particular area.

Oh, and it isn't "bigoted thinking." It's called "dealing with reality." You should try it sometime.
