GOP strategist and Tea Party hater Karl Rove says that he can imagine a Republican candidate in the next presidential campaign who will support homosexual "marriage." This is not surprising coming from Rove, nor was it surprising the philanderer Newt Gingrich came out with support for the idea. After all, these are the same guys who ran around with Dick Cheney, who now supports such redefining of marriage after his lesbian daughter was for it. I told you this was coming.
While Rove's comment was part of a panel discussion on ABC's This Week, he failed to elaborate on it, but understand that it comes from a mindset that thinks those of us on the right, who actually believe homosexuality is a wrong, perverse behavior, not a minority issue, will not appeal to America. The problem is these guys think they need to move further left. They've been doing it for years and where has that gotten us?
The reality though is far from the truth of what Karl Rove and company are putting forth.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council told CBS' Face the Nation the most Republicans still oppose homosexual "marriage." He also reminded America that 32 states have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and that there is a 6 point shift of people towards traditional marriage.
This point must be driven home. The whole reason behind the Supreme Court's taking up of the issue of same-sex "marriage" is because one of the most liberal states in the union, California, continues to vote against such perversion. People know it's not only wrong to redefine marriage that way, but it's wrong to practice homosexuality. I can tell you that if the Republican Party continues down the road of promoting such things in their candidate, they will not earn my vote again.
I'll also point out that in many states there are still laws on the books deeming the practice of homosexuality as criminal. Yet, former U.S. Solicitor General under President George W. Bush, Ted Olsen said, "The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln," he said. "Equality and independence and people that love one another, that wish to form a stable bond, are part of our economy, are part of our community - that should be a conservative value." That is a conservative value. What is not a conservative value is people engaging in perverse behavior, then seeking to implement it as normal, teach children that it is acceptable, and ultimately redefine what marriage actually is.
Bradlee Dean, who writes for Freedom Outpost, sent a letter to Barack Obama concerning the issue of homosexual "marriage." He received a response, which was more like a form letter, which you can read here. He was later interviewed about the response he got from Obama.
In answering a question about what he got from Obama's response, Dean said:
This individual is at war with America as you know it. He stated election eve 2008 that he wanted to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." He purposes to demoralize, pervert, weaken, and overthrow America and our Constitution, with marriage and our children in his sights. He told the Department of Justice not to defend marriage (DOMA); he appointed an education czar who wanted to queerify the elementary; and he even went so far as to repeal the law that prevents sodomy and bestiality in our military when he signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. Does not Barack know that Government's whole purpose is to restrain men from sin (breaking the laws of our Mosaic Institution) and to "ensure our rights" (Thomas Jefferson). It is not to advocate that which God condemns (as well as the American people) and not to take away our God-given rights, only in turn to give us privileges through Barack's good graces. Apparently he doesn't understand that "governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." It is "We the People" not "Barack and his unlawful administration." 7 million people in California and 31 states have already made very clear that marriage is to be upheld the way God commanded – between a man and a woman.
Dean said that the impact to American families and individuals would be determined by the people's willingness to say "no more."
"Assaulting, demoralizing, only adding to the fire of confusion, not only to the American family, but to our posterity, which he intended," he said. "He is gauging the American people to see how far he can go before the American people stand up and say "no more."
He then warned Christians and Conservatives about how their enemies would seek to use their compassion against them. "In my experience, American Christians and Conservatives are generally too "decent" and "civilized" to match up adequately with their radical adversaries, at least in the initial stages of the battle. They are too prone to give them the benefit of the doubt, to believe there is goodness and good sense in them. This radical president talks of justice and democracy and equality. People can't really believe that he wants to destroy a society that has brought wealth and prosperity to so many people. Oh yes they can, and they are. This president and his administration mocks our laws, and even attacks our laws (he is suing governors for upholding them). The American people's compassion is a weakness that their enemies do not and will not share. This president and his administration thrives on the indulgences of society's understandings. The corrupt in government depend upon you in your ignorance of the Constitution and its embodiment of its laws."
"We already see that this president is unwilling to be ruled by law, him not knowing that it is the law that makes the president," he continued. "The American people have already expressed their concerns to the government, and this president and his administration have time and time again responded with contempt and disdain. (Look to last week's ruling in California when 7 million people were overthrown by a corrupt justice system, again.) It's time for the American people to invoke impeachment concerning this president, his administration, and corrupt judges throughout America. (This is already happening as seen when three Iowa Supreme Court Justices were ousted by voters after they implemented homosexual marriage.) The American people must be jealous over their liberty. As it's inscribed on the National Archives in Washington, D.C., 'Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.'"
So what does Dean say it will take to address the concerns over homosexuality in the culture? "Let me put it this way, when you go to Arlington National Cemetery, and you see our men and women come back in boxes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that we now have, to ratify and magnify the Constitution of the United States (which was ratified by their sacrifice), how can the American people allow this administration to desecrate their sacrifice any longer? The men and women died to magnify the Constitution while we let this administration desecrate the memory of those who laid down their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. No more."
"Martin Luther King comes to my aid to answer your last question," he added. "John and Robert Kennedy had called MLK into a meeting at the oval office during the civil rights movement in the 1960's. He was asked by John and Robert to keep the issues in the courts. Martin Luther King knew that the courts would slow up, and at length, stop the process of them winning their God-given rights in which they had been fighting for. Martin responded to John and Robert, "I must take it to the people." And to the people he took it."
It isn't like we're up against it in the corporate world with CEOs like Howard Schultz of Starbucks telling those that believe in traditional, biblical marriage if they don't like the company's stand on perversion, they should just sell their stocks. Perhaps that is good advice. Sell those stocks and stop giving any support to them.
To know what America is up against, you really need to see the homosexual manifesto, which was entered into the Congressional Records. Warning: This is not for young children.
