Neither Friend of Court or Culture: Obama Asks Supreme Court to Undermine Marriage Comments

On February 28, 2013, the Department of Justice of the Obama  Administration filed what is called a Friend of the Court or Amicus Brief in the case styled Hollingsworth v Perry.It should have come as no surprise to those who have been actually watching Barack Obama and his administration - and not simply buying into the sophistry which they offer with such regularity.

    End times Homo-hersey: sodomy based sex as equal in any way whatsoever to Marriage - Marriage as defined by natural law. Marriage as the place to beget and raise children. Try begetting children via sodomy and cunnilingus. There's no natural purpose for same-sex relations or sodomy. It's un.natural. You can make it legal in every sountry on the globe. It's still un.natural. Forget tax-expemtion. Take it away. Kill every one of us RCs. Same-gender sex is, and will still be, unnatural.

    I am Catholic, I am conservative, and I have seen my gay friend struggle with being mocked and insulted at my high school. I have comforted my friend for a half an hour in the girls bathroom because she feels that God is disgusted by her just because of who she is, and can't help but be. I am confused and saddened by this issue. Frankly, I don't know what to do.

    The Creed of Corruption
    The charade is over. The fact is those who would abolish religion, particularly Catholic Christianity which is the most confining to them, have been able to charade in a garment of hope and change long enough while on the political stage to appear part of the faith in order to obtain credibility with the masses, then they begin to build their own "church" as they "religiously" legislate and establish a "benevolent" Creed of Corruption for their subjects.
    Once it is firmly in place with a large following lured by diversity and promiscuity under the guise of compassion it becomes an accepted "alternative" belief system espoused by an entrenched coalition of the ruling class seeking control of the masses.
    We now have in place the high priest of that creed and he is our president.

    So if it has become a war of words we need to, as the president has often remarked, level the playing field for all of us.
    Taking that liberty it would be quite proper to say, in his view, our society should and has decided womb life is no life and deserves little consideration and no protection under the law. Some, like our president who personally voted (three times) and legislatively determined that even when taken out of its home in the womb and discarded on an abortionist operating table having survived an attempt to be destroyed, that child must be ignored and left to die since it was unwanted by its mother. Unlike the unwanted and homeless who live on our public streets and have voices to be heard these precious little souls currently have no tin cup or neighborhood shelter or government assistance program to turn to for help. When they arrive on the scene or sonogram they are not received like illegal aliens and legally given the benefits of citizenship like thousands of others crossing our borders daily. In short, the most helpless of all new life entering our country are not only the least served by us they are being politically challenged or deliberately killed by a totalitarian regime which considers them a social problem unless (pray God) they are actually desired by the patient…formerly known as mothers.
    We should add, lest you think otherwise, the next target for the tyrants of translation will be to convince us our new wonderful government run healthcare system can no longer carry the tremendous fiscal burden of the expensive elderly beneficiaries of Obamacare and must be compassionately euthanized either by assisted suicide or withdrawing life giving medication and given only pain killers until they expire.

    Let's not discriminate. This amicus brief does not go far enough. My sisters and I wish to benefit from all the social constructs too.Why can't I be married to my three sisters? They should be all listed as benefactors on my pension too as my spouses. Nobody loves me like my sisters. The administration is a hypocrit. How dare it make the definition of marriage so narrow.

    The biggest lie, exhibited through the mouth of Obama & his people, which seems is his change of all Changes, is to treat Gay relations where sex is involved, in terms of a Genetic order, this is the lie against God & Creation. Trying to justify it in terms of "Discrimination" is but to Popularize this same lie, when actually it is to do with circumstantial evidence that which can be changed when circumstances are changed. However the whole truth behind this "Gay appeasings" is part & parcel of Population controls in the long run hence politically "Gainful" but Spiritually against God & His Will, signifying a total lack of faith which is but to a sure "Enslavement" come against "The Truth of Liberty" that which is off the Spirit, to the Biblical understanding into making their own truths, to their own agendas but into the words of Daniel "He will not regard the desire of women" which average desire is to reproduce & against this & the word of God "Be Fruitful & multiply" has come all these so called laws - Leavened to its core, to that of Herod.

    Priests have been arrested in Canada and other countries that mandate gay marriage for "hate crimes" for reading out of Leviticus. There is a strong push and lawsuits against the IRS callirrng for churches to lose their tax exempt status because they as a group were against gay marriage and you shouldn't try to legislate morality. Never mind the fact that we do it every day as a society. When a pedophile is arrested for harming a child-he has no moral problem molesting children. Society imposes its morality on him. He may even argue that society can't tell him who he cannot "love". Think its over the top? Look up the doctrine of the homosexual group NAMBA. Equal protection for equal groups? FAIRNESS? Not in the Liberal world. In Seattle homesexuals couples are given an extra $100 a month in pay simply for being homosexual. How is that fair?Illegal Aliens should be given Amnesty. How fair is that to legal immigrants that must have green cards renewed and for money? The hypocrissy of hedoAA AAd

    What do you expect from anti-Christian? Obama has demonstrated over and over again that he is hard core. I expect this from Obama and his party of death. What stymies me is the silence from the pulpits in my dioceses. We are not debating how high our taxes should be. This is an all out attack on the Catholic Church. It's like the Barbarians are at the city gate but the city leaders and citizens are completely incoherent. It's really sad.

    sometimes, I feel so ashamed of the so called " civilized" nations of their " uncouth rationality" " perverted moral/ spiritual values" and " social behavior" .In my little thinking, the Constitution of America was written at the backdrop of " racial discrimination " and " slavery". The Fourteenth Amendment's guarantee of equal protection embodies a defining constitutional ideal that "all persons similarly situated should be treated alike." is a " misnomen" today. what does it means " similarly situated?"? Does it mean the " all those exposed as homosexuals-lesbians" whose equality to be in parity with the heterosexuals?? Was parity of homosexuals a " social issue" at the writing of the American Constitution?? Is Judiciary guided by Constitution or Executive like the American president?? Does " similarly situated mean a physical, gender based ?? psychical affinity or one of " civic right and opportunities to grow uniquely as they are " boys as men and girls as women ( clustering of similar) ?" Even Russia with all its " classless" ideology could not create a " socialistic society". what an odd thinking to conceive " equality" a " leveling point" between man and woman, and now between man and man?? when there are serious issues of " social and economic inequalities" that affects the nation, I don't' understand why the administration should focus on " equalizing and legalizing gender" against the natural law.

    Again, it is obvious to those of us who follow Catholic Online that the liberals have been directed to this website in order to leave their anti-Catholic, pro-sodomy comments. I have never seen most of the names on these comments in my 4 years of reading this website.
    The devil thrives in their versions of compassion and tolerance.
