I feel physically ill, as The Guardian and Fox News have just in the past hour and one-half, reported Obama's endorsement of same-sex unions. Not only did he do so, but he invoked the Name of Christ in his statement, committing sacrilege and blasphemy, as Christ, the Lord and God, Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, would never want anyone to encourage a deadly sin, which is what the President has just done. His statement show a complete disregard for natural law and for the age-old Judeo-Christian prohibition on homosexual acts. As a Black Liberation Theology adherent, he does not believe that the Jews are the Chosen People of God and that his brand of so-called Christianity can use violence for a material Messianic age. I have written at length on this since 2008, Summer of, on my previous blog, and here, below.
If anyone thinks Obama is a moral leader, this statement contradicts that stand. If anyone is in doubt of his pandering to a particular group for votes, get real. Here is the horrible stance taken from the video:
“This is something that, you know, ....talked about over the years and she, you know, she feels the same way, she feels the same way that I do. And that is that, in the end about and she cares most deeply about is and, you know, I, you know, and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think , the thing at root that we think about is, not only , but it’s also the , you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated.”
Now, as a Catholic, I believe, as all good Catholics do, in natural law philosophy. We also believe in the sacredness of a marriage between a man and a woman, for the pro-creation of children and for real love, growing to the type of love which builds the Church, as I have discussed on this blog over the past few days.This statement of the President jeopardizes the work of the movement to preserve traditional marriage here in England. It also follows up hard on the election of Hollande in France, who also supports same-sex civil unions. We are in the throes of the biggest challenge ever faced in the West, since either the crusades or the Reformation-the overturning of Catholic values and Catholic law.
Let no one be confused on this issue. God has created man and woman in His Image and Likeness for a purpose, and the cynical, deceptive use of the Name of Christ shows the depth of this man's spiritual decay. We cannot have him as president for another term. His anti-life record is the worst any president has ever had, and now this.
This man has brought Americans farther away from God than any president has ever done. I am ashamed and horrified. Does he believe in an afterlife, and that he has to stand before the Creator, who ordained the Ten Commandments and the Teachings and Traditions of the Catholic Church? I am afraid that this is the throwing down of the gauntlet for the union of the States. This alone could start a civil war, of those who love God and country, and those who only love their own pleasures. There are many good, honest Christians who will feel as I do--ill. God help us all.
And with the financial chaos in the news today regarding Greece and Spain, the euro and the eurozone, and the election of Hollande, I cannot help but believe a great evil has been let loose upon the West, particularly Europe and America. Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
