President Obama traveled to his home country of Kenya. While there, he pushed his pro-homosexual agenda with these comments:
“When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode,” Obama said at a joint press conference with the Kenyan leader in Nairobi. “And bad things happen. . . .
“Obama equated legalized discrimination of gays to legalized racism in America.
“‘And when a government gets in a habit of people treating people differently, those habits can spread,’ Obama continued. ‘As an African-American, I am painfully aware of what happens when people are treated differently under the law.'”
A few things should be noted. First, Kenya is not having any of it. The African nation opposes same-sex sexuality because the majority knows that homosexuality is medically harmful:
“Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) have been increasing among gay and bisexual men, with recent increases in syphilis being documented across the country. In 2012, men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for 75% of primary and secondary syphilis cases in the United States. MSM often are diagnosed with other STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea infections.
“Men who have sex with men are 17 times more likely to develop anal cancer than heterosexual men. Men who are HIV-positive are even more likely than those who are uninfected to develop anal cancer.”
We know that AIDS was almost exclusively confined to homosexuality even though homosexuals tried to claim that anyone could get AIDS.
A person’s race does not have disease component to it unless a person engages in same-sex sexuality.
We’re seeing in the United States that there is legal harm as people lose their jobs because of their opinions on same-sex marriage and others have been prosecuted and fined for expressing their religious beliefs on the subject.
“Harm” is a two-way street that President Obama does not want to travel down.
Second, the anatomical design of men and women is a prime indicator of God’s original creation. The Kenyans aren’t fooled by psychological redefinitional gobbledygook. They know our sexual equipment was designed by God to fit in terms of sexual opposites. People of the same-sex, no matter how often they try, can never reproduce.
Third, the Kenyans know that there is a moral component to same-sex sexuality. As God-fearers, they understand that there is a long-term cultural impact to legalizing same-sex sexuality. God gives up cultures that acquiesce to the homosexual agenda.
“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error” (Rom. 1:26-27).
Fourth, the biggest blunder President Obama makes is equating a person’s race with sexual behavior. People are different in all kinds of ways, including behavior. Not all behavioral differences are tolerated, moral, or legal. Racial differences should not be equated with behavior.
Look at this picture. Identify the homosexual and the different racial groups and genders:
You can’t identify the homosexual? Why not? Because homosexuality is a behavior. In fact, there is no empirical evidence that any of the six people in the above picture engage in same-sex sexuality or that they steal, lie, cheat on their income tax, etc. Moreover, there is no way to tell anything about their behavior from this picture.
No one would know if a person engaged in same-sex sexuality, adultery, pedophilia, bestiality, theft, lying, or any similar behavior unless (1) we were told by that person or (2) we actually witnessed the behavior.
The debate over same-sex sexuality is a behavior and moral issue and should not be compared to a person’s racial identity.
