    Christian Group Slams Obama's Salute to Gay Dads
    The Associated Press reports that President Obama's salute on Father's Day is still drawing criticism from traditional marriage and family groups. During his proclamation, the president said, "Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by a father and mother, a single father, two fathers, a step father, a grandfather, or caring guardian." White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said the president was just being "inclusive." American Family Association president Tim Wildmon saw the mention differently. "This is the first time in our nation's history that a president has used Father's Day as an excuse to promote the radical homosexual agenda and completely redefine the word 'family,'" he said.

    I don't see the need for calling the president names, but aside from that...

    If President Obama does not have an agenda he was foolish to make the statement. It evidences his agenda.

    He could have said the same thing without any list of examples at all.

    I agree

    Perhaps, but than again, he is a politician. You try to gather good will and potential votes wherever you can.

    There are probably 1001 ways to say the same thing. No matter how he said it someone would criticize him.

    True, but he was asking for trouble in the current climate.

    This is key to all of these. He is a politician, full stop, He is not demon or saviour. He is a politician. I think this a foolish politician decision.

    Unless, of course, his 'advisors' recognise that he can't make the religious right any angrier, so why not say it.

    I totally agree. We live in a hypersensitive age ... maybe we always have, but I do not think so.

    I would not like being in a job where even my best decision would make several million people mad. :laugh:

    This President is a morally reprehensible anti-christian, God-hating, Bible-mocking, baby-killing embarrasment to a constitutional government. May the Lord remove Him speedily.

    I find it quite non-Christian to wish for someone's demise rather than his/her conversion.

    Do unto others as ye would have them do to you. i.e. Wish for others what you would wish for yourself.

    Perhaps you should learn about imprecatory prayer.

    And let me add, I will take your rebuke under serious consideration. Only, allow me to admonish you in that while I do desire with all my hear the Barak Obama would repent and believe in Christ Jesus, and by His grace become a true Christian, to wish to God that He remove a wicked and ungodly king is not opposed to wishing for his conversion. And this prayer and desire of mine is what I would indeed wish for myself should I be exalted to a position of authority, but morally disqualifed from it.

    Well He CAlled You and I, NAMES

    That's right C4K. Think back to last year. He stood before a few hundred thousand Germans and called Americans 'arrogant', and that we were "dismissive" towards our allies!!!!

    Than he had the 'audacity' to apologize on yours and my behalf.

    Not that I advocate the use of names when referring to Obama, I'd have to say, that in the eyes and hearts of many Americans, Obama cast forth the first word, and he made it 'open-season' for retaliation by those in this nation who do not like him.

    As for me, because he favors not only abortion, but, late term abortion, after the baby is out of the body, I can, with good conscious call Obama a "babykiller !!!" Bush was a babykiller, so was Clinton, and many before them. :tear:

    Our Presidents are responsible for the genocide of more innocent babies than Hitler was guilty and responsible for Jews !!!

    So, I can call him a name, because in fairness to him, that is what he is because that is his freedom of choice !!!

    The blood of millions of innocent babies, all around the world, is currently on his hands because it's going on during his watch !!! :flower::tear:

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    I find it quite non-Christian for someone to jump to the worst possible conclusion without asking for clarification first.

    I took his words to mean that he wished that the Lord would remove Obama from office - not that the Lord would remove him from this life.

    Perhaps you would do well to do unto others what you wish for yourself - which is to be given the benefit of the doubt.

    It is not likely that you actually believed this about his post. But it is more likely that your emotions got the best of you because you did not like it and you worked to try to gain support against his post by stirring up a false interpretation. You are guilty of being a false witness.

    You should heed your own words.
