The President’s LGBT “Accomplishments” in Context

by CitizenLink Team

Yesterday, the White House released its first ever web page devoted entirely to LGBT issues, and also posted a list of ways that President Obama has advanced the homosexual and “transgender” agenda since he took office.

A quick glance at the list and one is tempted to feel overwhelmed by all the ways that this Administration has sought to affirm homosexuality in our culture. Overwhelmed because we know that the end-goal of this Administration, and the LGBT community, is to force the culture to accept and endorse homosexuality and “trangenderism” to the point that marriage between one man and one woman is no longer upheld as the gold standard in America.

CitizenLink is particularly concerned about the deconstruction of marriage because we care about the well-being of families and kids, and data show that children do best by nearly every measure when they are parented by a married mom and dad. In fact, one of the best ways to keep children out of poverty is for them to belong to a married mom and dad.

So even as the President rolls out this list of “accomplishments” on the LGBT front, we  must remember that there’s a bigger agenda in mind, and it will ultimately affect marriage and children in a profound way. That’s why CitizenLink continues to encourage Congress to promote what is best for children and families. One way Congress is doing that is by defending the Defense of Marriage Act in the courts, a law that defines marriage between one man and one woman for all federal purposes.

But what can you, as a Christian, do?

1)  We can’t say enough how important it is to vote your family values. Vote for candidates that you believe most closely align with what you believe is GOD’s best for families and children. President Obama stands in office today, and affirms the LGBT agenda in many sectors of society, simply because people voted for him.

2)  Stay in constant communication with your federal lawmakers. CitizenLink makes that easy for you, and it won’t take much time out of your day.  And remember, “winning” each battle is not the only motivation for speaking the truth to your elected officials.
