RIGHTS OF CHRISTIANS TAKE BACK SEAT TO RIGHTS OF GAYS AND LESBIANS
The nation’s first gay president – as described by Time magazine – is demanding the removal of provisions in a House defense authorization bill that would prohibit the use of U.S. military property in same-sex marriages and protect military chaplains who refuse to perform gay marriage ceremonies against their religious beliefs.
“The Administration strongly objects to sections 536 and 537 because those provisions adopt unnecessary and ill-advised policies that would inhibit the ability of same-sex couples to marry or enter a recognized relationship under State law,” said the statement from the Regime.
This, of course, is standard operating procedure for liberals: the rights of those whose causes they champion always supersede the rights of those with whom they disagree: Christians vs. atheists? We musn’t offend the atheists. Moral values or respect for Christianity vs. the rights of those who produce the most vile “art” or films? (See: Piss Christ.)Freedom of expression trumps common decency every time. The rights of military chaplains to refuse to perform marriage ceremonies for homosexuals based on religious beliefs? No way – go gay.
Ironically, the Obama Regime claims to oppose the provisions because they are “potentially harmful to good order and discipline.” Really? While the debate continues as to whether allowing openly-gay men and women to serve in the military demonstrates “good order and discipline” in the first place, how does preserving the rights of chaplains to refuse to act against their faith negatively impact good order and discipline? The potential for armed gay insurrections in the military? Funny – liberals bend over backwards to assure the “rights” of Muslim prisoners - from prayer mats to halal diets – yet something as fundamental as allowing a Christian or Jew to bow out of performing same-sex marriages because it violates their beliefs? No way – go gay.
If Barack Obama is so hell-bent on guaranteeing same-sex marriage in the military why not provide gays with access to secular resources? Because – here’s the dirty little secret: liberals are nearly as concerned with humiliating Christians and Jews as they are interested in the promotion of same-sex marriage. Hell – it’s a twofer; liberals loves it.
As to be expected, the left greets Christian opposition to the provisions with ridicule and contempt. San Francisco’s First Lady of Looney Tunes, Nancy Pelosi, rejects opposition to the conscience-protection provision that would prohibit anyone in the military from ordering a chaplain to act against his or her “conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs” or against the religious beliefs of the denomination to which he or she belongs, calling it “a fraud.”
Somehow, I just can’t imagine Madame Wing Nut referring to Muslim – or atheist – opposition to anything as a fraud. Pathetically, she says her Catholic “faith” prohibits her from opposing same-sex marriage on the basis of “discrimination.” The fraud, you transparent jackass, is you.
For the record, on May 9, 2011, the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains advised that same-sex couples in the Navy would be able to get married in Navy chapels, and that Navy chaplains would be allowed to perform the ceremonies. The Chaplain Corps revised their Tier I training manuals, which had previously indicated that same-sex marriages were not authorized on federal property. That change gave chaplains permission to marry homosexual couples, but did not force them to perform ceremonies.
The nation’s “first gay president” wants to take it a step forward and force military chaplains to perform gay marriages; he just doesn’t have cojones to come right out and say it – yet. Although I’m sure his position is still “evolving.”
There is quite a difference between allowing gays in the military to marry – and forcing chaplains to perform those ceremonies. The degradation of America under Barack Hussein Obama continues.
