Personally, I don't care what others do behind closed doors, but I do not like the gay lifestyle constantly being thrown in my face. And I greatly object to the homosexual agenda which our young people are being forced to endure in the public school system and from the media.
As usual Lloyd Marcus writes an awesome article about the subject at the American Thinker, but as much as blacks may disapprove of gay marriage, I can't see them voting for Mitt Romney over Barack Obama. Perhaps, Obama's stance on this issue will cause some to stay home on Election Day. I think that's the best we can hope for.
President Obama: Gay Marriage Is Not a Black Thing!
By Lloyd Marcus
It is becoming increasingly difficult to escape the left's in-your-face aggressive campaign to make homosexuality normal. Flipping through the channels, I caught a lesbian scene (two women kissing) on the Lifetime channel. The SyFy channel has a new series in which bisexual scenes involving the lead actress are a staple.
For crying out loud, I cannot even get ideas to remodel my patio without homosexuality forced in my face on and Garden channel. A homosexual couple is featured on most, if not all of their series. Given the tiny percentage of gays in the U.S. population, clearly producers are pushing the gay agenda.
And make no mistake about it, folks: the left is extremely cunning and aggressive in its quest to make homosexuality considered normal -- equal to heterosexuality. Heck, the left believes that bisexuality is more enlightened than and superior to both.
The left's indoctrination of our kids regarding homosexuality begins in kindergarten. Kids are taught that Heather having two moms is really cool. As for us old farts, they simply bully us into submission. They put us in a political stranglehold with our arms bent behind our back, and they apply painful pressure until we yell, "OK, OK, homosexuality is normal!"
Now, every time I deal with the topic of homosexuality, liberals go crazy! They cuss me out and say I hate gays. I do not. As clichéd as this might sound, some of my closest friends and family, whom I love dearly, are gay. But loving someone does not mean that one should be forced to approve of that person's behavior.
Calling the opposition "haters" is a tried-and-true tool of the left to get their way. If you disagree with government forcing taxpayers to fund abortion against their religious beliefs, the left says you hate women. If you disapprove of the president ignoring the Constitution to implement his socialistic agenda, the left says your disapproval is really hate for a black man. If you say gay civil unions are fine, but marriage should remain defined as one man and one woman, the left says you hate homosexuals. The left actually exploits our sense of decency, compassion, and fair play. They know that accusing us of "hate" will in many cases silence our opposition and give them whatever they want.
The left are pretty selective regarding whom they call intolerant haters. For example, the left claims that Christians are vitriolic haters of gays. While the Bible does call homosexuality a sin, it says that "with loving kindness have I drawn thee"(Jeremiah 31:3).
When I was a teen in the Baltimore Youth Choir touring Maryland black churches, gays were active in the black church. Black pastors preached the Bible, but I never saw homosexuals mistreated.
Meanwhile, the Muslim faith has zero tolerance for homosexuals. And yet the left defends Islam to the max. The Noble Quran's punishment for unrepentant homosexuality is execution, crucifixion, or cutting off of hands and feet (The Noble Quran 5:33). So why does the left, which includes the mainstream media, enthusiastically defend Islam while despising and aggressively attacking Christianity? The answer is that the left has a problem with Jesus...but that's for another article.
Recently, VP Joe Biden came out boldly in favor of same-sex marriage. Biden was laying the foundation for Obama to secure gay campaign contributions.
In the typical Democrat fashion of dividing Americans into various perceived voting blocs, Obama has thrown a bone to numerous groups to win their votes in November: women, college kids, blacks, and occupiers. Now Obama is going after the gay vote/contributions. During a recent interview, Obama said he supports gay marriage.
Obama coming out in support of gay marriage might be the single issue which awakens black Christian voters from their Obama-zombie trance.
As a black American who ignores skin color, I cannot begin to tell you how frustrating it has been attempting to persuade fellow blacks to see what devastating effects Obama's socialistic policies have had -- not just on America in general, but particularly on the black community. But nothing seems to break their Black Code loyalty to the first black president.
But this "gay thing" may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
My dad and a super-liberal black minister friend consider a vote for a Republican to be a vote for the KKK. And yet they both voted for Bush's second term to protest the Democrat's support of gay marriage.
As I stated, blacks fellowship with gays in church -- love, live with, and play with them. But trying to make blacks say homosexuality is normal? "Ain't happenin'."
