This Crosstalk takes a look at one aspect of American societal change that is throwing us into a downward moral spiral. This societal change is being fueled in part by the Obama administration as they promote the LGBT agenda. For example:
–President Obama last week urged the Supreme Court to overturn California’s same-sex marriage ban. It marked the first time a U.S. president has urged the Supreme Court to expand the rights of gays and lesbians to wed. If adopted by the court, it will likely result in homosexual marriage becoming legal in 7 other states. Oral arguments will take place on March 26th.
–In a brief challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the Obama Department of Justice argued that children have no need or right to mothers.
–Jim played audio from President Obama regarding Proposition 8 indicating that he believes the nation as a whole has gone through the same evolution he has in now supporting same-sex marriage.
–Last Thursday the House joined the Senate passing the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. It has been expanded to protect LGBT individuals.
–The State Department launches a new website/travel service for the LGBT community.
