President Obama, Homosexual marriage and fifty righteous Pastors<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Last night, May 9, 2012, I watched America sink deeper into the pit of hell. It was when the sitting President of the United States of America endorsed and approved and encouraged the homosexual agenda, in effect calling for the legalization of homosexual, lesbian and transgender marriages the law of the land.
President Obama publicly announced to all of America and the world that he had made a personal decision and choice, as president, to publically support same sex marriage because he believes that all people should enjoy equal rights irrespective of their sexual orientation.
Tragically, he became the first President in the history of our country to call for the tearing down and revamping of civilization's central institution of holy matrimony to satisfy a perverse lifestyle.
The self-serving Rev. Al Sharpton, one who would do better to keep his opinions to himself, immediately jumped on the gay pride bandwagon and gave a strong statement of support, fully endorsing the president's newly revised position on the matter, promising fully support from the black community.
Recently, In Palm Springs, California, one of the gayest communities in the United States, local gays were deeply and vocally offended at the press received by a $5,000 wedding held to witness the marriage of two little doggies.
The Desert Sun April 23, 2012
PALM DESERT --What began as an innocent summer fling, turned into happily ever after Sunday for two love-struck canines.
Despite the hot weather, more than 100 friends and family members met at the clubhouse at the Palm Desert Resort Country Club to watch the bride, Scruffy Rubin, walk down a faux grass carpet aisle to her groom, Snickers Carter, who waited anxiously under a flower decorated trellis.
Instead of the wedding march, entertainer Jeri Lynne, accompanied by a live band, sang "You Light Up My Life."
The first-class wedding -- thrown by the mother of the bride, Ernie Rubin of Palm Desert, and the groom's mother, Ann Carter of Palm Desert -- was complete with a wedding cake, open bar, reception and "priest" performing the vows.
The shindig cost more than $5,000, Rubin said. "I'm not losing a son, I'm gaining a daughter-in-law," laughed Carter.
what Rubin and Carter intended to be a fun way to raise money for a Palm Springs no-kill shelter quickly became overshadowed by bloggers, Internet comments and letters to the editor slamming them for spending so much on something the writers deemed frivolous, or a slap in the face to the LGBT community fighting to legally marry.
Are we going to hell in a hand-basket? More like in a fifty gallon barrel!
The President, Vice President and all the rest of the Gay, Lesbian and Transgender community may be running around rejoicing that the wall against gay marriage has finally come down in America and it is now their time and place, their moment, but the Bible, God's Word to man, still calls it an abomination. I am sorry but that is the way it really is..
The Word of God will not bend to political gamesmanship or feel good, political correctness. But, many of those who stand in a pulpit with God's Word in their hands have bent to it's power.
Hold on to your warm and fuzzzies for a minute and read the endorsement God gives to this perverse lifestyle.
In The Old Testament, just one scripture of many:
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Lev 18:22 KJV
And In the New Testament, just one scripture of many:
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Rom 1:24-27 KJV
And in just one of many commentaries on the subject we read from Wycliffe Bible Commentary on Romans 1:26-27:
"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Uncleanness always generates more uncleanness. Here is a divine judgment in which God handed the Gentiles over to disgraceful passions. Women are charged with homosexuality in verse 26 and men in verse 27.
"Paul uses straightforward language to condemn perversion of sex from its rightful place in the marriage relationship. He regards the union of the sexes in marriage as a natural relationship (AV, natural use). But here women exchanged natural sex relations for that which is contrary to nature. The men did the same thing.
"Paul pictures the depravity and degradation of men inflamed with sensual desire for each other. This is followed by the note of judgment."

Now I am going to take a 180 degree turn and talk to every pastor in the United States and all who read this blog.
I weary of pastors who will not speak against sin from their pulpits for fear of offending some, for fear that people will stop coming to their 'unfriendly' church, for fear that the government will take away their church's non-profit status for 'getting political'. For fear has captivated the preaching of the Gospel throughout America!
Here is the president of the United States of America, a man who claims he is a Christian, openly endorsing what God calls a perverse abomination and the outrage that should be coming from every pulpit in this country is, instead, a silence that is deafening.
I know a few godly pastors, zealots for truth and decency and the holiness of marriage who will speak up loudly but you and I both know they are in the tiniest minority.
I challenge every pastor and Christian leader and every Christian believer in America to stand up for what God wants for us and not what President Obama dictates for us. The time to act is now.
I challenge every Christian reading this to print it out and hand out copied to every leader and pastor a in your church and demand that they be true Christian leaders and take a stand at once. Email it to every person on your email list. Post it everywhere you can.
Do you remember the story of Sodom and Gomorrah? Is it going to be repeated in America? If not, will God have to apologize to those wicked ones.
Remember, God was going to destroy that wicked place because of the homosexual, perverse things going on and Abraham pled with the Lord not to do so if there were Fifty righteous men in the city. Abraham and the Lord finally got down to the sad fact that even ten righteous men could not be found there.
Angels finally came and saved Lot and his family from a mob of men who had surrounded their house, calling on Lot to send out these angels who appeared as men for their perverse use.
Well, I have to ask you, "Are there 50 righteous pastors who will stand in their pulpits this Sunday and a call sin and perversion the abomination that it is and call upon our president to repent?"
"Is there even one righteous pastor in your own church?
"Are you out there, pastors who will not bend to the politically correct filth that president Obama just called out to be the law of this land? Please, are you out there?"
Dear Holy God, spare America from destruction.
