Pretending To Love Jason Collins

Jason Collins SC1 Pretending to Love Jason Collins

I suppose Monday, April 29, 2013 will go down in history as a great day for America.  Jason Collins (right in above picture) came out of the closet to announce to the world that he is a homosexual. He has been depicted as a “hero,” a “trailblazer,” and as “our Jackie Robinson”.  Kobe Bryant was one of the first to congratulate Jason for his courage.  Michelle Obama was quick to announce her support for Jason:  ”So proud of you, Jason Collins! This is a huge step forward for our country. We’ve got your back!”

Bill Clinton couldn’t help but bloviate on the controversial topic, declaring that Collins’ announcement was “an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community.”  In case you may have forgotten, this is the same president who signed into law the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996 while he carried on a secret affair with Monica Lewinsky.  It was also Bill Clinton who signed the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, which stated that an openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual service member would of necessity be discharged from the military.

Chelsea Clinton, a former classmate of Collins at Stanford University, tweeted her support:  ”I am very proud of my friend Jason Collins for having the strength & courage to be the first openly gay player in the NBA”.  Chelsea claims credit for helping her father finally ‘evolve to the truth’ about homosexuality.

Unfortunately, Bill Clinton represents the culture of America.  What was once condemned as wrong is now not only tolerated; it is enthusiastically accepted.  It is now ‘cool’ to be gay.  Were we wrong then and now we are right, or were we right then and now we are wrong?  Human nature does not evolve toward the truth; rather, it leans toward sin.  The Apostle Paul described his natural struggle with sin in his letter to the Romans.  (Romans 7:23-25)

Not to be outdone by the Clintons, Barack Obama weighed in on the matter through White House Spokesman Jay Carney:  ” We view that (Collins announcement)  as another example of the progress that has been made and the evolution that has been taking place in this country and commend him for his courage and support him.”  I am reminded of another call Obama made to Sandra Fluke to support her as she clamored for free contraceptives.  I also remember a call to the Occupy group that camped out on Wall Street to encourage their rebellion.  I remember a “beer summit” in support of Harvard Professor Henry Gates, who made unfounded accusations of racism against a Cambridge police officer.

Please wait while I pause….still pausing….thinking….trying to remember.  I can’t remember any calls to injured American servicemen.  I do remember a vague empty promise to get to the bottom of the Benghazi incident.  It certainly seems that we have a president who is more than eager to lend his support to divisive issues but feels little motivation to create patriotism and loyalty to the country he serves.

I know I’m going to get slam-dunked for what I am about to write.  It always happens when I express my opinion on this issue.  I don’t know Jason Collins personally.  It seems I would like him if I did know him.  Are those supporters of Jason Collins really expressing love for a friend?  Among those of us in Christian circles, we like to refer to it as ‘tough love’.  It is the determination to defend truth, even in situations where it generates pain.  Someone needs to tell Jason Collins the truth about homosexuality, not because they hate him but because they love him.

While nearly everyone will commend Collins for his courage to declare himself a homosexual, few will commend ESPN’s Chris Broussard for having the courage to tell the truth.  Who is a real friend of Jason Collins?  Is it Bill or Chelsea Clinton?  Is it Barack or Michelle Obama?  They are jumping on the bandwagon for political exposure.  They are like parasites leaching off of every individual who has found their way into the national spotlight.  Jason, your real friend is Chris Broussard.

The sports analyst expressed his opinion of ESPN’s “Outside the Lines”: “I’m a Christian. I don’t agree with homosexuality,” Broussard said. “I think it’s a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin … that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ,” he added.

(Please wait while I applaud….clapping hands…feeling proud…stilling applauding the courage of Chris Broussard.)

Earl Fowlkes is the president and CEO of the Center for Black Equity, a group that supports black individuals who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered.  He made a ludicrous attempt to compare Jason Collins with Jackie Robinson:  ”…he will be a little, miniature Jackie Robinson.”  The attempt of the homosexuals to hijack the Civil Rights Movement is outrageous.  Martin Luther King fought for rights that were being denied to those of a specific skin color.  Our race is predetermined before birth.

There is no scientific evidence that people are born gay.  Sexual orientation is not written in our DNA; it is more about how we define ourselves.  Ironically, Jason Collins has a twin brother who revealed that he was shocked when he learned his brother was gay.  With no evidence to support a genetic cause, we have descended to the level of granting rights for certain behaviors.  As you can only imagine, opening this Pandora’s Box will only lead to more confusion and controversy.

Chris Broussard is the lone voice crying in the wilderness.  Homosexual behavior is a sin that distresses the heart of a holy God.  If a holy God is to remain holy, he must one day administer justice for the sin of homosexuality.  Broussard added more truth to the issue.  He declared that all sex outside of marriage is sinful in the eyes of God.  As Christians, we love Jason Collins. We love him enough to tell him the truth.   We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)  Christians, to whom forgiveness has been granted through the Savior Jesus Christ, want to share this good news with whoever is willing to believe.

18 Reasons Why Obama Is Unfit To Be Commander-in Chief

US President Barack Obama 7372 300x180 18 Reasons Why Obama Is Unfit to be Commander in Chief

For a number of years, it has been known that the guy called President Obama has little to no known qualifications with the exception of being a street hustler and community organizer.  Frankly, the man is not qualified to be a Cub Scout leader and would have difficulty running a lemon aid stand even if he could make proper change.

Give it some serious thought, dear readers. What has he accomplished that benefited our country aside from economic world-wide chaos and rudderless foreign policy which makes the entire world a very scary place? As the worlds remaining superpower, he is doing all he can in his power to destroy our status in that area as well.

As an anti-war candidate, the irony is that there doesn’t seem to be a conflict he is unwilling to enter in Eurasia. Ah yes, do we remember his repeated failures during the Arab Spring.

Now proving that he loathes the military, he has been doing everything possible to destroy it and the morale of its members. Why not? After all, he has become a dictator, and no one in Congress has enough estrogen or testosterone to have him impeached. Below, you will find a number of insults heaped upon our men and women in uniform:

1. He cut the military budget as he gave federal bureaucrats a raise.

2. Obama planned to force early retirement in the military with reduced pay. Not likely to fly as it would need congressional approval.

3.  He made many new friends by changing the rules of military combat pay.  That’s right, no combat pay unless the soldier is being shot at, never mind that most of the deaths and blood shed comes from I.E.D. ‘s.

4.  In a classic move, Obama had the DOD end sale of expended Military brass to re-manufacturers.  Order rescinded almost immediately due to the firestorm of criticism. It sure wouldn’t be a good idea for “right-wing extremists,” particularly those who read the bible and especially members of our armed forces returning home, who have also been designated a threat, to have less expensive “reloads” for ammunition.  Hell no, we just can’t have a well armed militia can we?

5.  Obama has begun negotiating new START legislation that would decrease our nuclear weapons by 80% while our enemies are developing them. But of course he plans to give away our nuclear secrets to the Russians so they won’t fear us.

6.  Obama caves to Saudis as they blackmail him for more US made F-15’s

7.  Military commanders have been ordered to lie about Afghanistan.

8.  Obama made the decision NOT to award the Purple Heart to the fallen and survivors of the Ft. Hood Shooting by Muslim Terrorist Maj. Nidal Hasen, calling it “workplace violence.” This guy is great, isn’t he?

9. As Commander-in Chief, against the advice of his commanders while pandering to his gay constituents, he kept his promise and had Don’t Ask Don’t Tell rescinded. Who knows, he may want to “openly serve” in the military to make up for being a woeful president and leader.

10. Obama disrespected the families of U.S. Navy SEALs. Yep, Mr. 24-7 campaigner-in-chief, always up for a photo-op and against the families wishes, showed up when the caskets were delivered at Dover AFB and gave a pathetic limp-wristed salute.

This from the guy who doesn’t want to offend any of our enemies by wearing an American Flag lapel pin or putting his hand over his heart while saying the pledge of allegiance.  We might need to cut him some slack here; if he’s not one of us as suspected by many, perhaps he will wait for his return to Kenya or Indonesia before following protocol.

11. Obama violated the rights of Military Chaplains. That’s right, he ordered them not to discuss issues of contraception as mandated by his new forced contraception upon the Catholic Church (a clear violation of church and state.)

12.  Obama embarrassed our military by apologizing to Karzai on the Qur’an incident when Afghan soldiers shot two American officers in the back of the head The Quran’s in question were being passed around with messages between prisoners. Interestingly, there has been NO apology from the U.S.-trained-and-funded Afghan military for the murders.

13.  Obama lied about bin Laden’s death, claiming SEAL TEAM VI involvement (completely against spec/ops protocol, putting families of the alleged members and their base in danger.)  No pictures are available because he has been dead since the early 2000s.

14.  Obama wanted injured military to pay for their own medical expenses because they had volunteered to fight in the military.

15.  Proving yet again that his hair-brained ideas are virtually limitless, Obama forced members of the military into Obama Care exchanges and slashed their healthcare benefits in the process.

16. Keeping up with the ever-present need to be politically correct in the military, NCO’s  have been ordered to wear fake belly and breasts to better understand how females in the military feel. Yep, let’s waste tax dollars on such nonsense rather than put the woman on medical leave.  Are male soldiers planning on becoming pregnant in the near future?

17. Obama doesn’t stand with Military as NATO tries to prosecute the soldiers who burned the Koran.

18. Thought by many to not be a natural-born citizen, Obama receives little respect from the military, the most notable example being Lt.Col.Terry Lakin, among many others.

I’m sure there have been more insults heaped upon those that protect our Constitution. Feel free to leave your comments as you remember those I have missed.

To say this author lacks a warm and fuzzy feeling for the guy who calls himself the leader of the most powerful nation on earth until he destroys it would be a very safe bet.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’m J.C., and I approve this message.

Obama Forces CIA to Support a Gay Political Summit

With the country mired in a grave debate about the debt and government spending, the CIA confirmed Monday that they are sponsoring a gay advocacy group’s summit on issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) military members…

“Promoting diversity within the CIA’s ranks — in its many forms — is a top priority for the Agency,” Marie Harf, CIA spokesman told TheDC.

The CIA joins the Human Rights Campaign, Amazon, Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, Coverity, Out & Equal, Log Cabin Republicans, Stonewall Democrats of Southern Nevada, and the American Veterans for Equal Rights to put on the 2011 OutServe Armed Forces Leadership Summit in Las Vegas, Nev., this October…

The CIA’s sponsorship was in the $10,000 range.

Obama Admin Wants to Widen Government’s Gay Indoctrination

Rowan Scarborough, The Washington Times

U.S. Department of Agriculture activists want to impose their intense brand of homosexual sensitivity training government-wide. If accepted by the Obama administration, that move could mean more sessions for military service members already undergoing gay-sensitivity indoctrination.

Critics fear additional gay-oriented training would be an unnecessary added burden for combat troops and encourage some to leave.

USDA officials have asked the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which oversees all federal worker policies, to impose its gay-awareness programs on all federal departments, according to an internal newsletter…

The push for the training is coming from Agriculture Secretary Thomas J. Vilsack, former Democratic governor of Iowa. He has launched a department-wide “Cultural Transformation” that includes the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender [LGBT] Special Emphasis Program.”

The USDA’s senior training coordinator, Bill Scaggs, has developed a sensitivity program far more extensive than the Pentagon’s training for the anticipated lifting of the ban on open homosexuals in the ranks…

The Agriculture Department described its program in an internal newsletter, “My USDA: A Progress Report for Employees on USDA’s Cultural Transformation”…

The newsletter adds: “Future collaborations with OPM are planned, with the ultimate goal of having LGBT Special Emphasis Programs across the federal government”…

Mr. Scaggs‘ briefing for USDA employees is titled “Including Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Diversity”…

One slide on gender identity states: “Individuals are conscious of [sexual identify] between the ages of 18 months and 3 years. Most people develop a gender identity that matches their biological sex. For some, gender identity is different from biological sex (transsexuals).”

On attempts to change someone from gay to straight, the briefing says: “Usually doesn’t work and may even be harmful. Can produce feelings of depression, hopelessness, shame and anxiety. Some people become suicidal”…

The briefing defines “heterosexism” as an ” ‘ism’ like sexism or racism where one is considered better than others.” It gives as examples the ban on gays serving openly in the military and laws that define marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

On the Eve of Osama’s Death, Obama Forces Gay Propaganda on the Military

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

Before stealing the U.S. military’s glory for killing the world’s most wanted terrorist, Barack Obama instituted an indoctrination program forcing Christian servicemen to affirm the homosexual lifestyle or get out. Last Thursday, the Associated Press took a behind the scenes look at a reprogramming session conducted with Combat Logistics Regiment 17 of the the 1st Marine Logistics Group at Camp Pendleton:

Marine instructor Maj. Daryl Desimone stood before an auditorium filled with fatigue-clad troops, carrying an unequivocal message: It’s OK to disagree with letting gays serve openly in the military. It’s not OK to disobey orders.

…”It’s not really open to discussion,” Desimone said. “Nobody’s trying to change your mind.”

But as the story unfolds, it becomes clear that unless servicemen want to head to the stockade, it is not OK to disagree with gays serving openly in the military, or to morally object to homosexuality at all. The course the Obama administration’s political leadership forced upon Maj. Desimone seems clearly designed to change the men’s minds about the morality of same-sex relationships.
