Thanks for asking all Americans to celebrate "LGBT Pride Month," Mr. President.

English: United States flag with LGBT pride co...When it comes to people who struggle with sexual sin, we absolutely must as Christians be loving as He loves us. But that does not mean we are to accept the sin in the name of tolerance. Unfortunately, acceptance is now being asked of us by our commander-in-chief.  This from the Christian Post on our president, who yesterday told Americans that we need to celebrate “evolving attitudes” toward the homosexual community, as he proclaimed June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month:

“This June, let’s take some time to celebrate teachers and students who take a stand against bullying, openly gay and lesbian service members, … families and friends who have seen their own attitudes evolve,” the president urged.

Obama made the proclamation Friday and expressed again his evolved personal belief in “marriage equality for same-sex couples” “because we must treat others the way we want to be treated.”

He cited the Golden Rule when he first revealed on May 9 that he now believes gay and lesbian couples should be able to get married.

Pointing to his and his wife Michelle’s Christian faith, he told ABC News at the time, “[W]hen we think about our faith the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf but it’s also the golden rule – treat others the way you’d want to be treated.”

His proclamation for LGBT Pride Month comes just after a group of African-American pastors requested a meeting with Obama to discuss their concerns over his “endorsement of gay marriage as a civil right.”

The Coalition of African American Pastors says they’re disappointed and heart-broken over the president’s new stance.

Obama has declared June as LGBT Pride Month every year since taking office in 2009. Considered the most pro-gay president in history, Obama has repealed the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the military to allow gays to serve openly, stopped defending the Defense of Marriage Act in court, and after many years of “evolving” expressed support for same-sex marriage, among other things.

“I’ve often said that the true genius of America is that America can change. We can pass laws to right wrongs; we can soften hardened attitudes,” he said in a video posted Friday on the White House website.

Celebrating “unsung heroes” in the LGBT movement, Obama stated, “Bit by bit, step by step they bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice. Now it’s our turn.”

The president vowed to continue to “advance the rights of LGBT Americans” and called on Americans to “eliminate prejudice” and “celebrate the great diversity of the American people.”

According to a USA Today/Gallup poll released last month, 26 percent of Americans are less likely to vote for Obama this November over his support of gay marriage; only 13 percent are more likely to vote for him.

    1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders

    1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.

    If you believe in the Bible as the written "word" of our heavenly Father and follow His commandments and be lovers of truth,your home will be everlasting with our Lord Jesus Christ in peace love and joy.
    Amen

    You know when you see the sin in others we should also see the sin in ourself. For when we behold one another and see faults it should be a constant reminder of though we "Mankind" are made in the image of God we are fall removed from His Perfection, His Holiness, The Obedience He requires, an obedience, which, is impossible to grasp because of our flesh and our wicked hearts. A Wicked heart which God had to replace and a New Spirit He had to put in you if you are infact born again of the Spirit of God. And all of this made possible because Jesus "The Christ", The Holy One the One Perfected in what He suffered, poured out His soul unto death, even death on the Cross. And so Christ who is God and one with God was crucified, killed and buried and at the end of the third day and at the begining of the first day according as He Himself fortold; He by the Power of the Holy Spirit came back from the dead and today is at the right hand of the Father. So the Father made the Son the only way of salvation. Jesus Himself testified to this No one can come to the Father except by Me and later if you don't have the Son you don't have the Father. And because the Father was pleased, the Father gave authority to the Son to send the Holy Spirit to all who would inherit salvation.

    And so it is by Grace you have been saved and not of works lest any man should boast. A grace rooted and gounded in the cross of Christ where God provided Himself as a sacrifice to attone for our sins. To pay a penalty on our behalf which we will perhaps never fully realize.

    So when people sin, bring up the gospel, it is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe. And if you are saved then you already know it was God by the Holy Spirit who worked salvation in you and gave you the ability to believe. So let us hold fast to the truth and take every thought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ and be willing in season and out to give a reason for the hope you have in you by Jesus Christ.

    To God be the Glory and Power forever and ever Amen! And may the Holy Spirit by whom the elect are sealed unto the day of the revelation of the sons of God work in us mightily to this end that we be willing to lay down our lives for Him and so lay down our lives for the sake of one another.

    May God bless you all richly and bring you into submission to the obedience due to His name that God would be glorified in you just as the Son glorifed the Father in the Cross.
