The assault on marriage continues
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.
The Obama White House confirmed that it would include homosexual “unions” in official government statistics determined by the upcoming 2010 Census.
The NY Times reported that the Obama Administration is drafting another executive order to protect “transgenders” and “cross-dressers” from “discrimination” in the federal workplace.
But the radicals want even more...
Radical gay rights activists are threatening to march on Washington later this year and demand that Obama do even more. And he’s promised he will.
He’s openly stated that he wants to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as one man and one woman. Now this law - and the over 30 states that passed state marriage amendments - are in jeopardy.
Further, Obama has said he wants to repeal the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and begin to allow open homosexuals in our nation’s military. Something our military’s leaders have warned against. His Press Secretary Robert Gibbs vowed last week that this policy would not be in place by the time Obama runs for re-election.
Now they have the votes...
This Tuesday, the Minnesota Supreme Court gave Al Franken that state’s US Senate seat – giving Democrats the 60 votes they’ll need to overcome Republican filibusters of this radical agenda.
Obama is engaging in a step-by-step attack on traditional marriage - a gay activist agenda, clearly aimed at redefining the family.
The American people must stand up and say “No More”!
Don't let them succeed!
Let your elected officials hear from you. Let them know that we demand that they respect the will of the voters and defend the traditional definition of marriage!
