An Open Letter to President Obama

Honorable Mr. Obama,

Today it is being announced throughout  media outlets that your evolution concerning marriage equality for gays has come to an end. You have officially endorsed what is commonly called “gay marriage”. I take exception to the term, nonetheless for clarity in this correspondence I use it.

The Bible teaches, “Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). To redefine marriage or the basis of family life in a context other than husband (man) and wife (woman) is to undermine what is a sacred institution, created and ordained by God.  How can two men or two women naturally procreate? Doesn’t that give hint to God’s bigger plans for the family and planet Earth?

The idea that civil unions for gays do not go far enough flies in the face of reason. If rights are sought, let us dole out rights. This is not about rights. Civil unions give rights! This is about nationalizing an agenda. In a pluralistic society all persons should have  human rights, but not the right to moral redefinition.

Mr. President, respectfully, regardless of your devolution, the Word of God has not evolved. God’s idea is still the best idea; one man, one woman, one lifetime.  Marriage as defined by Christians must remain between a man and a woman.

    • Although I agree whole heartedly with the Bible in it’s demand that marriage is between a man and woman and disagree with the president of the U.S. with his belief in same sex marriage this will not change my vote for this incredible president. As president, I believe he had to take a stand politically, and position himself in this debate that is corrupting not only this country’s morales but the peoples of the entire world. It is Sodom and Gomora all over again. It is appalling to even think of two men or two women sharing the same bed in the quest for furthering homosexuality. However, in voting this November, we must consider the alternative: Mitt Romney? I believe Romney will take us back to the days of racial discrimination, deeper prosecution of the darker races and hatred between the haves and the have nots. All men are entitled to their beliefs but it should not compromise our own. Consider this: He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone. Should the sins that anyone of us have committed prevent others from knowing us for who we really are or just because we believe differently does that make us evil? Again, this November, consider the alternative!
