REGARDING LGBT RIGHTS, OBAMA AND BUSH ARE TWO PEAS IN A POD

Talking with the Roman Catholic press as he looks forward to having an audience with the Pope on July 10th, Obama had the following to say regarding LGBT rights:

Obama said he's struggling to reconcile his religious faith with his acceptance of gays and lesbians:

"For the gay and lesbian community in this country, I think it's clear that they feel victimized in fairly powerful ways and they're often hurt by not just certain teachings of the Catholic Church, but the Christian faith generally. And as a Christian, I'm constantly wrestling with my faith and my solicitude and regard and concern for gays and lesbians."


[For the full article, see here.]

Notice, in referring to "the gay and lesbian community in this country" Obama says: "I think it's clear that they feel victimized in fairly powerful ways...." They feel? Why not come right out and say, "They are victimized in fairly powerful ways...."?

Also, regarding his perception of what it means to be a Christian, just like George Bush, he seems to think that the United States is a Theocracy where one's religious view shapes, or is to be a major force in shaping, who gets civil rights and who is to be treated equally.

Indeed, his perception of "Christianity," causes him to "constantly [wrestle] with my faith and my solicitude and regard and concern for gays and lesbians."

Forget the solicitude and concern, Obama! Let's face the fact that in regard to LGBT issues there's not a dime's worth of difference between Obama and Bush, except that the latter was more honest about his prejudice!

How strange! I just sent you a link about this latest statement from our dear President. I personally think Obama is feigning Christian faith, but he knows he'll get more mileage out of that bit of play-acting than feigning "fierce" Gay Rights advocacy. Every day, I lose more respect for this man.

Thanks Don Charles. He's a mere two-faced politician and as I said the major difference between him and Bush and McCain is that the latter two are much more honest in expressing their prejudices.

Obama fooled a lot of people who placed their faith in him and in his words, and he betrayed them. He's a blatant traitor to LGBT people and to all who had hope that he was "progressive."

I voted for him as being the lesser of two evils, and I'm very sorry that I did.

And no Christian worthy of the name can sit idly by and allow others to be defamed and discriminated against, all the while stringing them along with empty words that betray his lack of sincerity; a lack of sincerity that defines him as a President, as a professing "Christian," and as a human being. Best wishes, Jerry.
