The assault against traditional marriage continues in our nation’s capital.
This past week, the Washington, DC Board of Elections voted “no” on allowing DC residents the right to vote on a citizen led referendum that would affirm a traditional definition of marriage. They claimed that allowing residents to vote on the issue would somehow violate the District’s Human Rights Act.
This is the same City Council that recently voted to have our nation’s capital give legal recognition to homosexual “marriages” that are performed in other states. The irony is this is the same city government that complains about not having representation in Congress…yet they won’t allow their own residents to represent their own views at the ballot box.
Step by step, Obama is undermining traditional marriage
This past week Obama signed a presidential memorandum extending federal benefits (normally reserved for married couples) to homosexual government employees and their “partners”. Of course , this also only ads to the overall costs of government benefits as well, at a time of record deficits. The bottom line is that Obama is now moving to use federal tax dollars to pay off a key portion of his political base. In fact, John Barry, the openly gay Director of the Office of Personnel Management, stated: “This is a first step, not a final step”.
Obama’s Justice Department recently notified a homosexual couple that they could update their passports to reflect their new “married” names. This comes after Obama’s State Department changed its policies to allow homosexual couples that travel overseas to apply for passports “under the names recognized by their state”, including gay marriages, domestic partnerships or civil unions. read more »
...this is the big one
Although social/cultural issues are getting little (if any) attention whatsoever in the current presidential election, the campaign to defend traditional marriage rolls on in California, Florida (likely to pass) and Arizona this year via proposed state constitutional amendments. read more »
This is just too good to be true. From Dave Brody:
Barack Obama may be talking up his Christian faith like he's doing today in Ohio and trying his best to appeal to Evangelicals with a "new kind of politics", but he's got a problem. Many of his positions are the same liberal positions that have turned off Evangelicals for years.
Out of the closet on his positions on many aspects of the gay agenda that is. Check this out from the Boston Globe:
Barack Obama pledges that if he wins the presidency, he would pass an employment nondiscrimination law covering gay Americans, guarantee federal benefits to gay couples in civil unions, and would end the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that prevents gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military.
