Skip to comments.Obama at LGBT event: Nation at ´turning point´
Posted on 06/13/2013 8:42:51 PM PDT by Nachum
President Obama told attendees at an LGBT Pride Month celebration that the U.S. needs to get marriage equality "done now," but that he believed the nation had reached a "turning point" on gay rights. "We´re not going to have to wait that long," Obama said. "From Minnesota to Maryland, from the U.S. Senate to the NBA, it´s clear we´ve reached a turning point." The president said that progress could be traced "from the courage of those who stood up." "Eventually America gets it right. That doesn´t mean we can be patient," Obama said.

Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Is Obama Gay? (file)
What a repulsive, evil, vile, putrid bastard.
Come on Hussein.......tell you’re muslim brothers you swing from the other side of the plate.
Sounds like Obama will soon announce he’s finally going to come out of the closet. He keeps using the word, “we” in his LGBT speeches. Is he going to marry Reggie Love?
Sinclair wrote a book about it.

We are at the Bend Over point.
Turning point...why yes, I think he’s right.
Is he going to marry Reggie Love?
No, they just play House.
he’s right about a “turning point”. It’s just not gonna be what he thinks it’s gonna be.
The US is 10 years past the turn.
It will never be brought back.
***Stomach turning point alert***
(I'm afraid we passed the point of no return some time ago)
God already spoken to US with two shakings. 9/11, seven years later 2008 financial meltdown, and another seven years will be 2015. Each shaking will be worst then the last one. 9/11 cost us 100 billion in clean up over 12 months, the meltdown cost the US 700 billion in bailouts to banks, the next shaking will be worst. Cause? Our founders acknowledged our war for independence could have been lost, but saved by unusual events that they concluded was intervention by God. Pres Washington acknowledged that when he became POTUS and asked that the guests on his swear in spend the rest of the day at church giving thanks to God and declared that we should live by his laws. In the Bible when Israel crossed the line on sexual morality the nation was given a warning via shakings. Refuse to repent and the successive shakings would escalate till the nation was destroyed. IMHO the US is facing the same judgement from God since we crossed the line on sexual morality in the 1990’s and sodomy. 9/11 attack is the first shaking, the financial collapse seven years later is the second, 2015 will be the third shaking unless this nation repent. God did not hesitate to use ancient Israel’s enemies to punish her, God already has done that to the US on 9/11.

Sounds as if Obama may be ready to come out of the closet.
He will probably wait to announce he is really a queer until he needs to do something drastic to draw attention away from one of the big criminal scandals.
But once he announces he is queer he will truly be untouchable.
The press will be down on their hands and knees crying at his bravery and the sheer wonderfulness of being on the same planet he occupies.
” The US is 10 years past the turn.
It will never be brought back.
Yes , there are those who make tons of money feeding us the BS that things can be turned around if only we elect ( fill in the blank ) . There is no going back . The beast is dead but too stupid to realize it .
I hope you’re right. This nation needs a good smiting. I just pray that I’ve moved into my mansion before it happens.
I have a lot of articles to ping out tomorrow. This is one. This is getting so beyond freaking Caligula I am only wondering how utterly depraved it will get before the shove back.
Everyoone - STOP - Take a deep breath - ignore the 15 scandals - and let’s discuss what is REALLY important - gay marriage.
Wow. Yesterday I was lectured about God not being complicit regarding evil perpetrated in the world and you are taking it a step further by stating that God is the catalyst. Wow
The nations priorities. What a mistake.
King of Perverts!
“President Obama told attendees at an LGBT Pride Month.....”
....instead of following troop movements in Afghanistan, investigating Benghazi, investigating Fast and Furious, investigating the NSA mess, investigating the IRS debacle and a whole host of crimes against the Republic.
President trainwreck leading from the rear!
Notice the way he puts it we’ve reached a turning point,
we’ve fundamentelly changed America, from a god fearing
nation to something else and now is not the time to
be patient. Oh NO, it’s time to double down, make some
more changes while everything is fluid.
The man is a insatiable cancer eating at the heart of
Divine Providence we beseech thee, preserve us from
further depredation and let us be rid of this vile beast.
We’re reaching a ‘turning point’ alright, you fop, but it’s not the turning point you and your deviant friends are salivating over.

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release May 31, 2013
Presidential Proclamation — Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, 2013
LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2013
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
For more than two centuries, our Nation has struggled to transform the ideals of liberty and equality from founding promise into lasting reality. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans and their allies have been hard at work on the next great chapter of that history — from the patrons of The Stonewall Inn who sparked a movement to service members who can finally be honest about who they love to brave young people who come out and speak out every day.
This year, we celebrate LGBT Pride Month at a moment of great hope and progress, recognizing that more needs to be done. Support for LGBT equality is growing, led by a generation which understands that, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” In the past year, for the first time, voters in multiple States affirmed marriage equality for same-sex couples. State and local governments have taken important steps to provide much-needed protections for transgender Americans.
My Administration is a proud partner in the journey toward LGBT equality. We extended hate crimes protections to include attacks based on sexual orientation or gender identity and repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” We lifted the HIV entry ban and ensured hospital visitation rights for LGBT patients. Together, we have investigated and addressed pervasive bullying faced by LGBT students, prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in Federal housing, and extended benefits for same-sex domestic partners. Earlier this year, I signed a reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in the implementation of any VAWA-funded program. And because LGBT rights are human rights, my Administration is implementing the first-ever Federal strategy to advance equality for LGBT people around the world.
We have witnessed real and lasting change, but our work is not complete. I continue to support a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act, as well as the Respect for Marriage Act. My Administration continues to implement the Affordable Care Act, which beginning in 2014, prohibits insurers from denying coverage to consumers based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, as well as the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which addresses the disparate impact of the HIV epidemic among certain LGBT sub-communities. We have a long way to go, but if we continue on this path together, I am confident that one day soon, from coast to coast, all of our young people will look to the future with the same sense of promise and possibility. I am confident because I have seen the talent, passion, and commitment of LGBT advocates and their allies, and I know that when voices are joined in common purpose, they cannot be stopped.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2013 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.
Sounds like he’s planning a great big National Daisy Chain Day.
Speaking of Stonewall Inn...

He forgot to mention how black Democrats turned him down on the forced celebration of sodomy in Illinois.
Read what happen to ancient Israel after Solomon. When Israel fell into sin, God allowed the Assyrians to launch a raid into Israel which left death and destruction as a warning to the Jews to repent and return to God. When the Jews refused, Israel was eventually destroyed and her people were carried off as captives of Babylon, until Esther won favor of the Persian king to allow the Jews to return back to Israel and rebuild her cities.
Jesus taught mercy and love, but he never refuted God’s promises and characteristics of the Old Testament.
I want a national firearms owner month.
The only thing “turning” is decent Americans’ stomachs.
When barbarians are attacking your house from all sides, do you relent on protecting just one window because it's too much trouble?
There should be NO LAWS on the state or federal books which are based on sexual relationships between it’s citizens. The government has no business being there.
Its getting pretty tiring, so much so that most of the gays I happen to know, think that the whole mess should just go away.
Politics is about the distribution and exercise of power in society, and sexuality is so inflamatory and personal to each citizen, that it has no basis for establishing power in any person or group as a foundation, all of which is entirely dysfunctional to society in general, in the areas of health, law, administration of law, military and government. We are a nation now known for who we F—K and who we do not F—K. Oh how we have fallen! As a people we have allowed ourselves to be defined solely by who we happen to have sexual relations with.
Gay legislation makes a mockery of the fundamental freedoms we should all enjoy as a people. No good ends will ever come from any of it.
