Separation of Church and State -- The State Should Shut Up Already!



President Obama came out to say Americans need to shift religious views to accept gay marriage.

My first reaction was to say just because he is so uncommitted to his religious views -- most Americans believing he's a Muslim and not a Christian as he says -- why should others be so uncommitted as he is? 

Then I started thinking about it and found myself asking why is a representative of the federal government instructing Americans on religious matters? 

What happen to separation of Church and State? Or is that only used when it's convenient like when trying to stop Christians from praying in public schools?

Democrats have made it clear that they hate Christians, so what gives Obama or any other Government representative the right to discuss what my beliefs are -- or if I need to change them to suit them? 

Barack Obama says America must shift religious views on gay marriage. After the Supreme Court issued its ruling on gay marriage, President Obama gave a speech in which he said Americans need to change their religious views to be accepting of gay marriage.

To that end, he encouraged gay marriage supporters to "help” people overcome their deeply-held religious views. Imagine that!

I have to tell you my readers that I find this very offensive! He oversteps his position as a government rep. He says people who believe in traditional marriage need to change your beliefs!

I do not like the Holier than thou attitude of anyone, especially when it's a representative of the government who now decided that he knows what's good for me when it come to my religious views!

Basically, the President can shut up and keep his opinions to himself when it comes to the beliefs of American Christians. Like the Pope, who has shown himself to be nothing but a politician, Obama too has no moral compass.

And yes, Obama is the last man to tell devout Christians how they should approach their religious beliefs. I for one know for certain that he is the last man on earth to tell me about how I should approach my belief system.

The idea of his condescension with it's "I'm smarter than you and you need to do as I say" attitude is something that I do not need. Besides, I thought as a Government Representative that he was supposedly forbidden from interferring with how I worship.

While the Bill of Rights said that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" -- maybe it should also say that the President should keep his sermons to himself.

While Obama might not be burdened by bothersome moral standards, that doesn't mean that I should give up mine.

I interpret Obama's latest "advise" pertaining to my religious views as him saying, "You lost the fight, gay marriages are legal, so knock off your religion crap!"

If pedophiles and polygamists have their way, with the support of the Democrat Party, Obama may be out soon to again say, "You lost the fight, child molesters and Muslims wanting to marry children, and group marriages are legal, so knock off your religion crap!"

I remember my grandfather once asking me why I was listening to a man who he knew was a thieve and a liar. After I said he was just telling me something, he said "I wouldn't believe a thing he said. I'd even check for myself if he said that I was on fire."

Obama is morally repugnant! Obama's actions have proven him to be in direct conflict with morals. He is completely incompatible with the teachings that I received as a Christian and a man.

How can I say that you ask? He has shown himself to be a politician and not a statesman. He has shown himself to be a Muslim and not a Christian.

He has shown himself to be a liar. He lacks character and I would not trust him to work for America even if I were able to watch his every move. I do not see him as an honorable man -- and he is someone who is certainly not qualified to advise anyone in regards to their religious beliefs -- unless maybe Muslim religious beliefs.

In other words, his attitude of "you'll get used to getting screwed" -- totally sucks! 

Obama, was once said to be a man shifting and evolving on the issue of gay marriage. I think that's crap! For him, politics and not a moral compass steer his belief system.

As for me. let me make something clear to anyone about to write me to call me anti-gay. I am not anti-gay. Frankly I don't care if some deviate wants to screw sheep, or want to marry a ewe. Disgusting acts will always be disgusting acts.

While I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and everything else is just a sham -- I could care less if gays get married or not because it will never be real no matter what they call it.

Let's be frank her, all the glitz and glitter and ceremony in the world and a gay "marriage" is still going to be between two gay people of the same sex -- and that means nothing.

To put it another way, all the glitz and glitter can't make Bruce Jenner a woman. He will always be just an old Drag Queen.

Whether Liberals like it or not, males, you notice I didn't say men, who want to act like woman will never be part of the norm -- the same goes for females who want to act like men. Good or bad, people will always look at them differently because they are.

What I do care about is that Christian clergy will now be "forced" with threat of punishment under the law to conduct a marriage ceremony for gay people, and the Federal Government will be complicit in taking away the right of that Christian to abide by one's own conscience when it comes to doing the ceremony or not.

Do I think Muslims will be forced to preform gay marriages? No. Besides, in America, Muslims are a protected class right up there with thugs.

As far as the law goes, granted that in a civilized society the government does force us to maintain civility to have harmony in our society. But frankly, I hate the idea of the government forcing us to do anything -- especially when it goes against one's moral principles.

There is another concern of mine, a bigger concern, and that's on the legal end and not the moral end of the spectrum. Like it or not, this Supreme Court ruling opens the flood gates for other deviant lifestyles to achieve protection under the law.

Gays want to be considered normal. Pedophiles want to be considered normal. Polygamists want to be considered normal. And yes, there are others who want their deviant practices considered normal and acceptable.

And now, since they believe that America has people in government who cannot discern normal form abnormal, they will come forward to be legalized. With this Supreme Court decision, the Democrats have made this possible in a legal sense. As for a moral sense, Obama and other government representatives can wish and bribe and threaten, but none of that will make it happen.

Fact is there will always be certain practices that will always be immoral in the eyes of God, no matter how some government representative tries to spin it.

As for the Separation of Church and State, the Federal Government should be made to respect the rights of Christians and leave the sermons to people who are qualified to give them. Obama is not.

And yes, that's just the way I see it.
