Those of us with a traditional American perspective are having to face the stark reality that an Obama presidency is certainly possible, if not virtually inevitable given the present condition of the polls. Because of this, I want to explore what an Obama presidency would actually look like.
If Obama is swept into office, it is likely that he will be joined by a large Democrat majority in both houses of Congress and maybe even a super majority in the Senate (60-plus senators). This would be a filibuster-proof majority and ensure that the Democrats can pass whatever they want.
What would be the result of this sea-change in American poliltics? Far worse than many people know. Obama and the Democrats have actually been quite up-front with their agenda for anyone who wants to investigate it.
Due to length (and ample documentation) I will deal with what an Obama administration would do in a series of posts covering a variety of issues. Today we will begin with how Obama would deal with the gay rights issue.
Gay Rights: There will be massive changes. Obama has clearly stated his intention to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act that shields states from having to recognize gay marriages conducted in other states. In a letter released to the gay community, Obama wrote:
I support the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) – a position I have held since before arriving in the U.S. Senate. While some say we should repeal only part of the law, I believe we should get rid of that statute altogether. Federal law should not discriminate in any way against gay and lesbian couples, which is precisely what DOMA does.
With the repeal of DOMA, liberal judges will inevitably apply the "full faith and credit" clause of the constitution, intended for contract law, to the social arena thus legalizing gay marriage all across the nation. Liberals have always used the courts to impose agendas that the populace would never vote for. This would make gay marriage the law of the land.
Along with the nationalization of gay marriage will come equality in adoption, which Obama also supports. By federal laws that will be passed by an Obama congress, states will have no option but to allow homosexual couples to adopt children. In addition to affecting the next generation of children, these changes will normalize homosexual marriage and have us working in PTA with gay parents and their adopted children (adopted because God is not as open-minded as liberals and does not allow homosexuals to reproduce).
Obama wants to change the military policy of "don't ask, don't tell," thus completing the social experimenting in our military that began in the Clinton administration. If the Clinton administration is any proof, Obama could extend the social experimentation with the military into the area of transgender and cross-dressing. As a veteran and retired naval reservist, this is a discouraging thought.
Obama wants to enable the foreign homosexual partners of American gays to become citizens. He wrote in the letter mentioned above:
I have worked to improve the Uniting American Families Act so we can afford same-sex couples the same rights and obligations as married couples in our immigration system.
There will be sweeping legislation that will penalize any employer for failure to fully support the LGBTG (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) agenda. Obama wrote:
In Illinois, I co-sponsored a fully inclusive bill that prohibited discrimination on the basis of both sexual orientation and gender identity, extending protection to the workplace, housing, and places of public accommodation. In the U.S. Senate, I have co-sponsored bills that would equalize tax treatment for same-sex couples and provide benefits to domestic partners of federal employees. And as president, I will place the weight of my administration behind the enactment of the Matthew Shepard Act to outlaw hate crimes and a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act to outlaw workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
These changes will radicalize the workplace and force insurance companies to fund bizarre and unnatural procedures such as sex-change operations. Employers will be forced to accommodate transgenders in their desire to cross-dress and use restrooms not associated with their natural gender. This could perhaps develop to where employers must create separate "transgender" facilities.
Hate crimes laws will place anyone who criticizes the gay agenda on shaky ground. If unimpeded, it will result in the prosecution of pastors who preach on biblical passages that condemn homosexuality as sinful. There are examples here and here.
For those who think that this post is alarmist and hate-mongering, I would ask you to review past legislation such as the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and the Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1970 which created OSHA. Both laws, signed by Richard Nixon, may have seemed relatively harmless when passed but both have been expanded by the courts to disastrous proportions.
Is there any question that the courts will not do the same with pro-gay legislation?
In my next post, I will deal with what Obama and the Democrats desire to do with abortion laws.
