President Obama Proclaims June “Gay Pride Month”
The New American ^ | 6/8/2012 | Dave Bohon

Every year he has been in office President Obama has made it a point to cozy up to America’s tiny homosexual activist minority by officially recognizing June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” This year, of course, was no exception. Having just come out officially in favor of legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the President followed up on June 1 by issuing this year’s proclamation setting aside the entire month to commemorate the valuable contributions that gays, lesbians, transvestites, and an odds-and-ends assortment of sexually- and gender-confused individuals have made to American society.

“The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community has written a proud chapter” in American history, declared Obama with this year’s announcement. “From brave men and women who came out and spoke out, to union and faith leaders who rallied for equality, to activists and advocates who challenged unjust laws and marched on Washington, LGBT Americans and allies have achieved what once seemed inconceivable. This month, we reflect on their enduring legacy, celebrate the movement that has made progress possible, and recommit to securing the fullest blessings of freedom for all Americans.”

The President used the proclamation to remind the “gay” community of all he has done for its members, and how much homosexual voters owe him their support come November. “Since I took office, my administration has worked to broaden opportunity, advance equality, and level the playing field for LGBT people and communities,” Obama said. He pointed out that it was he who forced through the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act, bullied Congress into ending the common sense “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban on homosexuals serving in the military, and is currently doing everything he can to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act and legislate the redefinition of same-sex partnerships as “marriage.”

But “more remains to be done to ensure every single American is treated equally, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” continued the President. “Moving forward, my administration will continue its work to advance the rights of LGBT Americans,” he promised as he officially recognized June as “LGBT Pride” month and invited the American people to celebrate homosexuality as a normal — even praiseworthy — lifestyle.

On the heels of his proclamation, Obama appeared at a June 6 fundraiser attended by some 600 homosexual activists and “gay rights” supporters, including lesbian talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres and 1970s pop singing star and actress Cher, whose own daughter went through “gender reassignment” and changed her name from Chastity to “Chaz” in an effort to live as a man. reported that Obama “appeared to feed off the energy” of the crowd as he pledged to block any attempt at the reinstatement of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban. Signing the repeal of that ban, Obama said, was a high-water mark for him as President.

On June 5, Stars and Stripes, the government-funded armed forces newspaper, described the results of the lifting of that ban, joyfully reporting that homosexual military personnel openly celebrated their lifestyle at a special “LGBT Pride” reception thrown by the U.S. Ambassador to Japan in Tokyo. “I can’t believe I’ve been in the Air Force 23 years living in secret, hiding who I am, and now I’m invited to a reception by the emissary of the president of the United States,” Stars and Stripes quoted one attendee, Air Force Master Sgt. Marc Maschhoff.

The military newspaper reported that the event “was an exciting and emotional night for Maschhoff and a handful of other U.S. servicemembers. Maschhoff traveled with his boyfriend — who is also an airman — from Misawa Air Base in northern Japan to Tokyo for the event. Maschhoff said he was invited by the embassy because of his affiliation with the group Outserve, a Washington, D.C.-based association for gay servicemembers with chapters worldwide.”

Amazingly, President Obama has appealed to his supposed Christian faith to justify his support for normalizing the homosexual lifestyle through the force of his office. OneNewsNow reported that on the same day he made his “LGBT Pride” proclamation, and right after a group of black pastors asked to meet with him over their concerns about his endorsement of same-sex marriage as a civil right, “the president pointed to his wife and told ABC News, ‘When we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it’s also the golden rule — treat others the way you’d want to be treated.’”

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality pointed out that the President is behaving “as if rights based on perverse and immoral behavior are basic rights…. Of course, those aren’t basic rights. Basic rights are what we all share as Americans. Rights based on perversion, on changeable homosexual sin, are not basic rights.” He added that “for a man like Obama, who professes to be a faithful Christian, to be celebrating an agenda based on using the government to create rights based on changeable homosexual behavior — that’s a travesty.”

Bob Stith, a strategist on gender issues for the Southern Baptist Convention and head of its Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals, told Baptist Press News that Obama is purposefully casting “all those who have a genuine, biblically based belief that homosexual acts are sin as haters.” But, he added, “it is not prejudicial to say that certain acts which have been viewed as sin for over 3,000 years by all three major religions are still sin.”

Stith added that the “words the president uses in his drive to normalize homosexuality clearly portray any who disagree with him as prejudiced bigots. Those who agree are loving and brave. The danger here is that those who dare to seek to protect the definition of marriage which has stood unchallenged for thousands of years are themselves the victims of prejudice and hate.”

Sadly, Stith said, Obama’s “LGBT Pride” proclamation “shows no interest in preventing this kind of bigotry. Rather it is another example that if something is repeated often enough it will be accepted as truth even if the evidence doesn’t support it.”

Mr. Prez, “pride” is so yesterday - uncool, as Orwell would say.

Couldn’t you pick one of the other seven?

“Gay Sloth Month”?

“Gay Gluttony Month”?

Come on, barkie, no wonder you and polls are not simpatico.

I seem to remember a while back when “gay and lesbian folk” didn’t consider themselves in the same group as “bisexuals” (glorified sex addicts) and “transgenders” (glorified cross-dressers).

How in the heck do these turkeys keep track of all the definitions and “types” of sexualities they’ve created out there? Reading Wikipedia about “transgender” is really really confusing.

barack obama is a fool for playing with this subject. Let ‘em have their “pride parades” and such, but leave the rest of America who aren’t interested alone.
He’s attempting to force all Americans to embrace sin and mental illness as “normal”.

Andre Chikatilo was proven to have killed 53 people. (Of course, the Ukraine convicted three other people for the same crimes and executed them as well.) Luis Garavito of Colombia was convicted on 139 murder counts. His 30 year sentence was reduced to 22 years in prison due to cooperation in finding the bodies. Fortunately other jurisdictions are still pressing charges on 172 other murder counts so he won’t be a free man in 2022.

Anyone who says there isn’t an apartheid in this country is crazy. There is one. The queers make a lot of noise and the pols jump. They in turn make laws that run contrary to what the majority of this country wants. Yes, the super MINORITY is calling the shots. There were protests of all kinds in this country when there was an a partied in South Africa and it came crashing down. Time to do it again and put the queers in their place.

FABIANs... so weird. Mark my words, the same emotionality that drove Hitler to waste resources on exterminating the Jews at the Warsaw ghetto is the same emotional blind PRIDE of vindication feminists share in this genocidizing of this country.

This is no ordinary charity, much like Nazism was no ordinary charity for the Germans.

When >2% of the population can run roughshod over and control 98% of the population, on anything, let alone their loathsome perversions, something’s very, very wrong! They need to be put down, real hard, dammit.

Just about any little group can make them jump but the white guy.

Which approach makes more sense to you – George Washington’s or Barack Obama’s?

What about Mitt Romney's approach?

But hey, it's ABO, right?

"How this phony fathered two daughters is simply amazing."

Based on what we know about everything else he has said and done, are we sure that he did?

"This explains why the majority of serial killers are and were homosexuals."

Considering they are only 2% of the population, that makes it even more significant.
