The President and his supporters are already hard at work portraying him as a modern day Martin Luther King, Jr. People of sound, rational minds will reject that as an insult to King as much as it is an insult to the intellect. While it has been a common tactic of the sexual anarchists to draw false parallels between the LGBT movement and the civil rights movement of King, the truth is that they are polar opposites.
How so? Start with the four “I”s. Race is inborn; homosexuality is not…it is behavior. Race is involuntary; while homosexual lusts and urges aren’t chosen, the behavior always is. Race is immutable (it can’t be changed); thousands of ex-gays testify to the fact that homosexual attractions can be overcome. Race is innocuous (it doesn’t hurt anyone); surrendering to sexually depraved lusts hurt both the individual and others.
Furthermore, consider that Martin Luther King, Jr. used God’s revealed Truth to mankind – the Bible – as the basis for his movement. He called the nation to obedience to God’s Word on the issue of race. Obama does the exact opposite. He calls the nation to reject the Word of God and move in a direction exactly opposite of God’s truth...because Obama believes himself to be smarter, wiser and more moral that the Creator. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been appalled at such arrogance. Remember it was King who said that a law is just ONLY if it comports to the will of God.
I understand that Mitt Romney is adamant about keeping this election about jobs and the economy. I understand why – Barack Obama has been a disaster on those issues and typically that is what motivates people at the voting booth to re-elect or reject an incumbent president.

But whether he chooses to discuss it or not, this election is now about a lot more. Barack Obama’s promise in 2008 to “fundamentally transform” America is now seeing its fulfillment. If you don’t believe me, take a look at Jeffrey Kuhner’s excellent assessment of what’s going on in his recent Washington Times article:
Mr. Obama’s decision puts America on the path to moral disintegration. We are one step closer to becoming like secular, post-Christian Europe...
Yet the same-sex-marriage issue is more important than simple politics. It is about the future of America’s civilization. Within hours of Amendment One’s victory, the pro-homosexual-marriage forces announced they would sue to block North Carolina’s constitutional ban. In other words, they repeated the Proposition 8 model: Circumvent defeat at the ballot box by asking leftist judges to trump the democratic will of the people. This is judicial tyranny masquerading as civil rights - a naked attempt by a minority to impose its neo-pagan immorality upon the majority. The homosexual agenda is a manifestation of the totalitarian impulse at the heart of liberalism: the desire by a ruling cartel to impose a social revolution from above.
Every major religious faith - Christianity, Islam, Orthodox Judaism - teaches that homosexuality is an abomination. Homosexual behavior, especially sodomy, is unnatural and immoral. It is absurd, bordering on social madness, to elevate gay and lesbian relationships to the sanctified status of marriage - a form of moral anarchy characterized by radical individualism, hedonism and sexual liberation. Same-sex marriage is a symptom of cultural decay.
That’s what Obama’s transformation is about – embracing cultural decay as progress. The truth is that Obama has always felt this way simply based on circumstantial evidence that was as clear as it was overwhelming. But for the sake of raising millions, he has openly embraced it. And Americans – Christian or not – must openly reject it. Why? For Christians, it’s simple: the direction is in complete opposition to God’s Natural Law. For non-Christians, it’s simple: the complete is in direction opposition to the foundations that have been the wellspring of our great blessing and prosperity.
