Obama clashes with African host over gay rights
AP ^ | 6/27/2013 | NEDRA PICKLER

Posted on 06/27/2013 10:23:32 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage as a "victory for American democracy" but clashed with his African host over gay rights in a sign of how far the movement has to go internationally.

Obama said recognition of gay unions in the United States should cross state lines and that equal rights should be recognized universally. It was his first chance to expand on his thoughts about the ruling, which was issued Wednesday as he flew to Senegal, one of many African countries that outlaw homosexuality.

*snip*

Papi Nbodj, a 19-year-old student who stood by the road to the presidential palace to see Obama's arrival, said homosexuality is against the religious beliefs of most in Senegal.

"We are in a Muslim country, so we certainly cannot have it here," he said. "And for me it's not OK to have this anywhere in the world."

Ouch! Not only did the President of Senegal tell Obama that his country wasn't interested in gay rights, but he told him that America was wrong to support it as well.

Sometimes I think if Christians stood up for Biblical morality with even 10% of the passion that Muslims defend the Koran, this country would be in a lot better shape.

we do stand up for it, but since we don’t threaten people with violence and behead people or blow things up they are not afraid to ignore us.

with muzzies jihad is integral in their religion, forced conversion or death is integral in their religion, maltreatment of non-muzzies is inherent in their religion, honor killings, if they die in jihad they think they get paradise with ever-virginal women, so they are afraid of these folks when they tell them something.

~~~President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage as a victory~~~

Yes. Yes it was a victory. For the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

As it was in the Days of Lot, so shall it be in the Days of the (revealed) Coming of the Son of Man (paraphrased).

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2017:22-32&version=KJV

Luke 17:22-32

King James Version (KJV)

22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.

26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

32 Remember Lot’s wife.

I was living in Tennessee when klinton and gore went on the ticket. I was living in gore's area and those people refused to hear truth. And they were devout worship attending Christians. But they insisted on closing their eyes.

With lethargy, ignorance and stubborness like that among people of faith, it's no use.

That’s the difference between Christianity and Islam. Islam is a militaristic system of domination. Christianity is a system of an individual’s heart being willingly given to God.

One enforces moralism from the outside in and upon others. The other has an individualized moral response from a change of heart.

So, America might be forced into good Christian “moralism” at the threat of Christian intimidation. Maybe that would make America more pristine...or morally sanitized. But, it wouldn’t be beneficial from a Biblical point of view and Christianity would not be better off as a result.

So there must be a great divide, and cognitive dissonance, in O’s brain over this clash of progressive gay advocacy and Muslim gay intolerance.

Sweeet! Couldn’t happen to a better subject. He loses one or the other, period.

I know many who claim that “God” led them to vote for Obama. Not sure which god they were referring to, but if they knew their Bible, they should know not to vote for someone who opposes everything God says. You are right - they are ignorant. Many seem to think that the social gospel is why they vote Democrat. However, what they fail to comprehend is that Jesus tells us as individuals to take care of the needs of the poor - not the government.

"We are still not ready to decriminalize homosexuality," Sall said, while insisting that the country is "very tolerant" and needs more time to digest the issue without pressure.

This hardly sounds like Obama being rebuffed. Sounds like a nice bribe (your tax dollars and mine) would do the trick here. BTW, this is EXACTLY how Obama sold gay marriage to the "civil rights leaders" he cultivates.

On another subject, Obama was pressed in his news conference about the status of former government contractor Edward Snowden, who has acknowledged leaking highly classified documents detailing sweeping U.S. government surveillance programs... Obama dismissed the notion of deploying U.S. military resources to detain Snowden, saying "I'm not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker."

That's true. He wouldn't even scramble planes to save an "ambassador and a friend".

Not only the native Africans, but many Black people here are not too fond of the gay agenda, to say the least. Based on my own anecdotal life experiences, the Black guys I grew up with would get more offended being called “fags”, “queers”, etc than the n-word.

I also think we should stop eating shell fish too. We need to follow the Bible perfectly so that the left can no longer bash us for using passages that we feel we want to. I don’t understand why we don’t follow the Bible word for word. I know I have given up shell fish a few years ago so that when I say that Homosexuality is a sin and they try to stump me. I say well I don’t eat shell fish either and boy do they shut the heck up. I never understood why conservative christians don’t follow the Bible more.

I do not approve of Islam and some of its more terrible ideas—BUT I honor the dedication of their followers who will die to get their will heard. A bit like the Kamakazi Pilots in WW II who would crash their obsolete planes into Allied ships. No one mocks Islam because you could get killed doing so. Imagine a Christian Group that dedicated today—well, maybe in Russia...

These people slaughter men, women and children for being on an airplane, or in a building, or on a bus and there's nuts all over this thread praising them for their "dedication."

When did this website get so completely insane?

There is NO valid reason - biblical, moral, financial, or otherwise - to blow up innocents (or gays, or Christians, or fornicators) and when some islamic nutjob says "And for me it's not OK to have this anywhere in the world." - that's what he talking about - murder. On a large scale of whoever's around.

And people who show any support for that plan are not much better than those they praise.

I say well I don’t eat shell fish either and boy do they shut the heck up. I never understood why conservative christians don’t follow the Bible more.”

Napscoordinator, the dietary laws were specifically abrogated by God in the book of Acts.

“11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.”

You may not like the Bible, or Christians, but do be aware that greater minds than yours or mine, far greater, have read and understood it in its entirety, and we are not picking and choosing what laws to keep and what to ignore. The Bible is consistent and clear. God does not make his will for us obscure. Whether we wish to abide by it or not is another matter.
