Homosexual Agenda Hypnotism

Setting the Stage: How President Obama is Spooning the Homosexual Agenda

"I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexual around the world," said President Obama, indicating he will sign a U.N. declaration that calls for the decriminalization of homosexuality throughout the world.

"Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans."

The declaration is non-binding, but would be used as a propaganda weapon by homosexual activists to push for the decriminalization of homosexuality in other nations. The Bush Administration had refused to sign the declaration because it feared it would have committed the federal government to intervention in state and local matters on the issue of homosexuality.

So, hold on. Decriminalize? Is being gay a crime? Yes, it was in India until the New Delhi High Court struck down section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. Now, consenting adults can have homosexual intercourse without being jailed for 10 years.

Drafted in 1860, this Colonial-era law was brought into effect by the British, and was in line with similar anti-homosexuality legislation passed in England at the time. In the past decade, gay rights activists and lawyers have strived hard to abrogate Section 377, calling it "inhuman", and as the Naz Foundation, which filed the petition to abolition 377 in 2001 argued, a violation of constitutional rights to privacy and equality.

Gay sex is a crime in some countries but not in the U.S. Thus, one can conclude two reasons why President Bush did not sign the U.N. document: it's not a crime in America to have gay sex and signing such a document conveys support of homosexuality.

President Obama has also made domestic strides to support the homosexual agenda. He proclaimed June 2009 as "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month" and is the first U.S. chief executive to appoint "openly LGBT" candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an administration.

One News Now reports:

Pro-family activist Peter LaBarbera says it is sad, but not surprising, that President Obama has chosen to issue a proclamation celebrating homosexuality. The president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says Obama is pandering to homosexual political activists. "Homosexuality is nothing to be proud of -- bottom line," says LaBarbera. "The fact is people have left the lifestyle, people have overcome homosexuality [with God's help] -- I think that's something to be proud of...."

Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, says in a One News Now report that the proclamation advocates more than mere tolerance.

"The United States federal government, now by executive order, signed by the President of the United States, is declaring national pride in these lifestyles," he contends. "This is not mere toleration; it's not calling for legalization, an end to criminal sanctions. It's not calling even for something like civil unions...it's calling for pride."

But wait, there's more.

President Obama also has extended benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees. Homosexual activists were underwhelmed because the benefits did not include health and retirement plans. The federal Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, signed by President Clinton in 1996 prohibits the government from extending health and retirement benefits to the partners of homosexual employees.

When the White House had a chance to stand for prayer, President Obama failed to send a representative to the Capitol Hill commemoration of the National Day of Prayer. The White House had previously been represented for nearly the last two decades. Instead, the White House chose to host an event several weeks later commemorating the Stonewall Riots of June 28, 1969, during which hundreds of homosexuals threw bottles and garbage at police and set a gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, on fire.

Citizen Link reports:

Tim Goeglein, Focus on the Family's vice president of external relations and a former special assistant to President George W. Bush, said the White House event is a boon to the gay lobby, which has been becoming impatient with Obama. "The president of the United State has the largest bully pulpit in the country and clearly gets to pick and choose among the issues that he would want to highlight," Goeglein said.

"There's an enormous amount of pressure (to advocate for pro-gay policies). The president has partially extended health benefits to homosexual partners. The president is of course now doing a commemoration, a very important commemoration. "But I think the larger goals are the ones that he's already committed to doing — overturning the DOMA , which is the protection of marriage in the states, and lifting the ban on 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' " which prohibits "out" homosexuals from serving in the armed forces.

But the latest is the most unsurprising kicker. The Obama administration filed court papers claiming DOMA discriminates against gays.

The law, often called DOMA, denies federal recognition of gay marriage and gives states the right to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

"DOMA reflects a cautiously limited response to society's still-evolving understanding of the institution of marriage," according to the filing by Assistant Attorney General Tony West. The administration also disavowed past arguments made by conservatives that DOMA protects children by defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

"The United States does not believe that DOMA is rationally related to any legitimate government interests in procreation and child-rearing and is therefore not relying upon any such interests to defend DOMA's constitutionality," lawyers argued in the filing.

Obama has pledged to work to repeal the law.

Conflicting Views: How President Obama Continues to Send Mixed Messages
When we peel back the surface, Barack Obama seems conflicted on the subject of homosexuality. He told Pastor Rick Warren last year during the Summer 2008 forum at Saddleback Church:

"I believe that marriage is the union between man and woman."

Yet, he says in a letter to the LGBT Democratic Club last summer:

"That is why I support repealing the Defense of Marriage Act..."

In his book, Audacity of Hope, Obama says:

"It is my obligation, not only as an elected official in a pluralistic society but also as a Christian, to remain open to the possibility that my unwillingness to support gay marriage is misguided...and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history."

One could conclude that our President has been struggling with this issue for a while. We all struggle with issues...some in our lives...others in the lives of our family and friends. More often, we complicate that which is so simple. So, let's try to dissect this issue:

Homosexuality: The Crime
Is it a crime to be gay? Not in America but in other countries, yes. In Iraq, the bodies of several gay men were found in Baghdad's main Shiite district of Sadr City earlier this year with the Arabic words for "pervert" and "puppy" -- considered derogatory terms for homosexuals in Iraq -- written on their chests.

This type of violence hasn't been seen or tolerated in the U.S. since the Civil Rights era. Not even after 9/11 were Muslims mistreated on a grand "hate campaign" level similar to the 1960's. However, homosexual activists would have you believe they are being targeted, discriminated, and mistreated on a daily basis.

While Christian missionaries and pastors are being beheaded for their faith in other countries, we are able to live out our beliefs (or non-beliefs) here in freedom. It's insulting to proclaim that anyone is being oppressed in the U.S. when blood is needlessly spilled elsewhere.

Homosexuality: The Lifestyle
So, if there's no law or fear of death in having gay sex, what about living the lifestyle? Again, we're in America and everyone is free to live their life as they please. The trouble comes when some try to impose their lifestyle through laws and legislation on others.

If one says being gay or living the homosexual lifestyle is wrong, that person is labeled intolerant, bigot, racist, or spouting hate. When did having a differing opinion become hate? But let's back up this discussion further. Is one born gay or does one choose to be gay?

Here, we can either apply the Bible or not. If we don't apply it, one would likely argue some are born gay. Many would say, "God created me this way" or "Why would I ever choose a lifestyle that would bring such pain and alienation?"

Why do people eat too much, drink too much alcohol, abuse drugs, marry the wrong spouses, or allow themselves to be physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally abused to the point of hospitalization and even death? We experiment with many things and do many things which aren't healthy or best for us, but they make us feel better. So, the gay lifestyle may make one feel better but is it really what's best? Ultimately, we're after feelings both shallow and deep.

If the Bible is applied, Got Questions explains:

God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.

One could debate "born gay" at great lengths, however, one still makes the choice to love someone of the same sex. Just as one chooses to love someone of the opposite sex or different race, chooses to be single, or has sex with animals and corpses. These are all choices.

What people get hung up on is being told they're "in sin" or "committing sin" and thus are "wrong." No one likes to be told they're wrong. Yet, the two things overlooked here are: the homosexual lifestyle is a choice (such as choosing to be an adulterer or wife-beater) and we can still love people and disagree with their choices. Choices don't define us, yet, we often allow them to do so. With whom we choose to romantically mingle doesn't define us, however, that's what the entire homosexual agenda is based upon.

Now, the President of the United States wants to make that choice a priority.

Homosexuality: The Marriage
So, if there's no law or fear of death in having gay sex, and there's freedom to live the gay lifestyle, what's wrong with redefining marriage?

While the Bible clearly defines marriage as between male and female, Got Questions also explores other reasons marriage is well defined:

The Bible alone, however, does not have to be used to demonstrate this understanding of marriage. The biblical viewpoint of marriage has been the universal understanding of marriage in every human civilization in world history. History argues against gay marriage. Modern secular psychology recognizes that men and women are psychologically and emotionally designed to complement one another. In regard to the family, psychologists contend that a union between a man and woman in which both spouses serve as good gender role models is the best environment in which to raise well-adjusted children. Psychology argues against gay marriage. In nature/physicality, clearly, men and women were designed to “fit” together sexually. With the “natural” purpose of sexual intercourse being procreation, clearly only a sexual relationship between a man and a woman can fulfill this purpose. Nature argues against gay marriage.

Also in One News Now, Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr., chairman of the High Impact Leadership Coalition, says that as African-Americans, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder both should know that same-sex marriage is not a civil rights issue, and that opposition to same-sex marriage is not the moral equivalent of racism.

"Evidently the president signaled to us during the Stonewall celebration, when he had all of the gay activists into the White House and made presentations of what he would do for them, that he values this constituency and he is responding to their urging to accelerate the process of redefining marriage," he points out. "So, I think it is very hypocritical on his part. I'm very outraged."

Jackson is joined in indignation by Brian Raum of the Alliance Defense Fund, who is disappointed the Justice Department is challenging the law which was passed in 1996.

"It's really troubling that the federal government has taken a position that federal policy is bad policy," says the attorney. "Federal DOMA was passed overwhelmingly and represents the prevailing view of the people of the United States that marriage is between a man and a woman and that's the optimal environment for raising kids," Raum contends.

Again, when one sees homosexuality as "how I am" and "who I am" anything and everything goes. If conditions are made to allow gay marriage, why not allow marrying one's horse or monkey? Why not being married to a corpse? Sound ludicrous? When the journey begins to accommodate the desires of the few, the slope becomes increasingly slippery into allowing other possibilities.

Homosexuality: The Politics
To make this issue more complicated, homosexual rights are being compared to civil rights and opposition to those rights are compared to racism. African-America columnist Star Parker wonders which side is President Obama on in her One News Now column:

First, we now know that Mr. Obama buys into reasoning equating the homosexual political movement to the black civil rights movement: "...it's not for me to tell you to be patient any more than it was for others to counsel patience to African Americans who were petitioning for equal rights a half century ago." Perhaps Obama can extend some of his famous empathy to a black Christian woman, Crystal Dixon, who lost her University of Toledo job for writing a column in her local paper challenging this premise. Dixon was fired for being uppity enough to write "...I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are 'civil rights victims' ...I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a black woman." Considering our president's priorities, I recall a song popular during the civil rights movement: "Which Side Are You On?"

Also, another political sign is President Obama's appointment of Harry Knox, a leading homosexual activist, to his faith-based council. Knox is on the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, and he believes scientific evidence supports certain people are born homosexuals. "What's clear from our experience and from science is that being gay or lesbian is an immutable, unchangeable gift from God -- one for which I'm very grateful," he said.

Also, appointed to council is Fred Davie, the openly gay president of Public/Private Ventures, to serve on on the policy council of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

In May, the Department of Education announced the appointment of Kevin Jennings to serve as Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe & Drug Free Schools. Jennings, a homosexual, founded the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), served as its Executive Director in 2008, and was the LGBT Finance Co-Chair for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Jennings and the organization he founded have been the leaders in promoting a pro-homosexual agenda in America's schools, beginning in kindergarten.

On the legislative front, the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act raises concerns for many including Dr. Robert A. J. Gagnon, associate professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.

In a Christian Post article, he points out that the explicit mention of "the free speech or free exercise clauses of, the First Amendment" was removed from the version that was passed by the House in April.

"There is nothing in this bill that explicitly prevents any homosexualist-activist judge, of which there are many, from ruling that calling homosexual acts a grave 'abomination' by appeal to Levitical prohibitions constitutes an inducement to violence," Gagnon states in an article series arguing against the hate crimes legislation.

The Pittsburgh Seminary professor views the bill as "the Trojan horse of an aggressive gay/transgender lobby."

He argues that it offers "to the public the 'sexual orientation' and 'gender identity' law least likely to meet with massive public resistance." And once the horse is within the city walls, then passing other laws on sexual orientation and gender identity will be relatively easy.

The more laws, bills, and politicians that are introduced on the platform of sexual preference, the more commonplace and accepted this agenda will become. To be clear, a politician or other leader should be qualified for a job based on their skills, abilities, or works and not on their sexual preferences.

Praying for Obama: How to pray about all of this
With all the Obama Administration is doing to promote the homosexual agenda and knowing President Obama says anyone who opposes gay rights on Biblical or traditional grounds are holding to "worn arguments and old attitudes," it might be challenging to pray for the President.

However, we aren't called to pray for who we "like" or who "agrees with us." Matthew 5:44 says "...love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you..."

President Obama and his Administration need prayer support. They need to make Godly and wise decisions. They do not need to pander to any one group based on seemingly grand notions that are for the good of everyone.

Pray that President Obama is granted eyes to see Your work and ears to hear Your voice so to not allow the wants of a few to dictate the needs of many.
1 Corinthians 6:12 "Everything is permissible for me"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"—but I will not be mastered by anything. "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body."

Pray that President Obama will honor people's rights and freedoms without forcing a sexual preference agenda upon everyone.
Matthew 19:4–6 "Haven’t you read," he replied, that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one.

John 15:18–19 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

Pray that President Obama is open to understanding that telling someone the truth is an act of love and not hate. Telling someone that he/she is in the wrong is not hateful. In reality, refusing to tell someone the truth is what is truly hateful. Declaring the speaking of truth, presented respectfully, to be hate speech, is in fact the ultimate demonstration of hate.
Colossians 4:6 "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."

Pray that President Obama is focused on things of God and not of this world, and that he is granted discernment of what is of God and what is of the world.
2 Chronicles 7:14 "Then if my people, who are called by my name, are sorry for what they have done, if they pray and obey me and stop their evil ways, I will hear them from heaven. I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land."

Pray that President Obama is open to understanding that telling someone the truth is an act of love and not hate. Telling someone that he/she is in the wrong is not hateful. In reality, refusing to tell someone the truth is what is truly hateful. Declaring the speaking of truth, presented respectfully, to be hate speech, is in fact the ultimate demonstration of hate.
1 Peter 3:15 "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect..."

Keep praying...


  1. No one...NO ONE...should be allowed to vote to hurt another family by restricting and/or denying EQUAL PROTECTION under tha law. We have countless stories of people losing their HOME, CHILDREN, POSSESSIONS, or being separated from their SPOUSE, having to move out of the country, or disabled, etc., due to a lack of EQUAL PROTECTION. "Legally" segregation from civil law. That is evil and immoral. Hardly Christian - more like "christian".

    It is esp. unconscionable that the group WITH these protections wants to deny other people the same protections.

    We have every right to DEFEND ourselves and FIGHT BACK HARD when government-enabled religious bullies traumatize and hurt our family at the ballot box! No one is protecting us: not the federal, state, or local government...not our own family and friends....not our "open and affirming" churches....NO ONE.

  2. John, thanks for sharing your thoughts here. Should one be allowed to have any relationship they choose? Yes. Should one be free from fear to display that relationship in public? Yes. Should one be allowed to redefine marriage and anyone allowed to raise a child? No.

    What's Christian is loving one for who they choose to be, being a friend, supporting them, but loving them enough to not agree with all of their decisions. Not allowing everything to be "gray" when some things need to be "black" and "white" is not hate, it's wisdom.

    America's freedoms allow one to live their life as they choose. However, marriage is for one man and one woman. Rights and privileges for civil unions can be created...but it's not a marriage. While family can be defined in many ways, every child should grow up with the influences of a mother and father.

  3. Right on man. Because we all know that all homosexuals are pedophiles and a Christian would never do anything to hurt a kid.

    This is pathetic. Hold on to your archaic beliefs about bigotry if you must, but quit trying to push them on other people. If you believe in a God which believes in love, then you must love even gay people. But you are too full of hate to realize that.

  4. Ninjagrapefruit, thanks for sharing your thoughts here. Nothing in the text above implies that homosexuals are pedophiles and Christians are people, therefore flawed by sin and capable of making sad mistakes including abusing children.

    These statements hold no bigotry but clearly disagree with your view. I am not a bigot because I disagree with you and I can still love you without agreeing with your decisions.

    Thus, you appear to be blinded by your own preconceptions, since I and God do love gay people. We disagree with their decisions.

  5. Rick Garner

    "since I and God do love gay people"

    First off, I doubt you speak for god. secondly, that statement does not hold water for the entire christian interpretation of god.

    Unfortunately, the interpretations of "god's word" are so many and so open for "human failure" I have a hard time finding a better group of people to draw a circle around than 'christian' when looking for people that foment hate.

    However, I do agree that using the minuscule christian population associated with child abuse as any comment regarding the christian population as a whole, is off base, wrong, and is a dirty argument tactic.

    I would agree with your comment that religion(s) should be allowed to decide who to marry and who not to marry, if the religions can agree that the concept of religious marriage has no place in the government.

    Release the term marriage back to the churches and faiths, and call ALL legal couplings as civil unions (for civil purposes as taxes, rights over survivorship,etc)

  6. Anonymous 5, thanks for sharing your comments here. As a follower of Christ, I am his ambassador in this world. I love gay people and God loves gay people. That's fact. Whether other Christians are mature enough in their faith or emotions is of no consequence since I am speaking for myself and what the Bible says, which is God's Word.

    Agreed, there are failings in the interpretation of God's Word just as often as others twist verses to fit their own agenda. How to overcome this is to search Scripture and align it with other attributes of God and what He has spoken about similar issues elsewhere. With research, the Truth is revealed.

    Sadly, you've likely been exposed to visions of Christians from the media or select groups that aren't demonstrating love. People of faith are efforting to share love and truth which won't align with others decisions. But disagreements aren't hate...they're just disagreements.
