In response to President Obama and Attorney General Holder’s decision, the Holy Bible reads:
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” –Leviticus 18:22
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” –Leviticus 20:13
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” –Romans 8:26-28
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” –1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” –Jude 7
This is an “evolution” that has gone straight to hell. It is a crying shame that this country does not have an older black preacher with enough moral authority to put the fear of God in these two young black men — Obama and Holder. No matter what you thought of Pastor Jerry Falwell, Pastor D. James Kennedy, and Pastor E.V. Hill, as prophets of God, they held the presidents in check, and helped them to understand that there were certain things they could not do. Every week, they cried aloud from their pulpits and through their television and radio ministries against abortion, homosexuality, and other sins that would cause God not to bless this nation and that would bring down this nation. We praise God for Pastor Paul Morton raising his voice, but we need others to join him.
This is a shame and embarrassment to real black men who have never in their lives engaged in homosexual activity (which, by the way, is the overwhelming majority). This is also an embarrassment to the black church and the black community worldwide. After over 235 years, 43 white presidents, and 81 white attorneys general, when God gives the first black men the privilege of being president and attorney general respectively, they act like they do not have the sense to maintain the status quo for the duration of the first black presidency, and this is what they do to their own people and to this country. Because of foolishness like this, Pastor Bill Hamilton of Georgia says there will never be another black man to become president of the United States.
Black pastors, pastors of all races, and real black men should be outraged, should stand up, and should strongly rebuke these two black national leaders for this wickedness and foolishness. Black women should also be outraged because one of the reasons why they don’t have good black men to marry as it is is because some black men have gone the way of homosexuality. And these two black national governmental leaders are not helping the situation. (There are thousands of white folks to blame for this too, but, generally speaking, worldwide, black people do not go for homosexuality and certainly not homosexual marriage.)
Obama, who has some connection to the black church, thinks he can get away with this because he knows there are homosexuals in the black church. There are even some pastors, ministry leaders, Gospel singers, and Gospel musicians who are homosexual or bi-sexual. On top of that, many black pastors have lost the moral authority to speak out against homosexuality and homosexual marriage because they have committed adultery themselves and have girlfriends on the side. If they practiced true Biblical church discipline and revoked the memberships of the homosexuals, fornicators, and adulterers in the church, they would have to revoke their own membership as well. Yes, the black church (and the white church) is at fault too.
Nobody is trying to pick on or condemn homosexuals. God loves all people and wants to see all people come to repentance, but, like an old preacher once said: If you have two people on a boat, and one is paddling, but the other one is drilling a hole in the boat, the one who has the drill must be stopped because if we don’t stop him, we are all going to sink. Sanctioning homosexuality and homosexual marriage, like Obama has done, is drilling a hole in the boat.
Now, there is a strange ‘inside’ rumor that Obama has told some religious leaders that he is ‘wisely’ pushing homosexuality and homosexual marriage and giving the homosexual community what they want in hopes of driving them to destroy themselves through AIDS. Whether that is true or not, it would still be wrong because the president does not understand the Biblical principle of ‘a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.’ In other words, sanctioning a little bit of the abomination of homosexuality in this country is just going to cause it to explode in growth (just like adding a little yeast to dough causes it to expand) and it will get to the point where no one has the ability to control it or stop it. And it will begin to tear down even the doors of the church. The president also doesn’t understand that this abomination of homosexuality is driven by the devil and demons in an attempt to dishonor God by turning His creation on its head. Since the time of Sodom and Gomorrah, it has been known to be an aggressive, ‘evangelistic,’ unreasonable, insatiable spirit that will not stop until everything is totally destroyed.
In Biblical history as well as throughout world history, countries and cultures have been destroyed when the government has sanctioned homosexuality, has taken away prohibitions against it, or has tolerated it. Considering how God has blessed America down through the years, it breaks God’s heart and saddens the heart of every godly preacher and every godly person to see that when we give a black person the chance to be president, he does this to his own people and to this country.
If you are wondering why things are going so badly in America today, it is because of this president sanctioning homosexuality and homosexual marriage, which is not only a sin, but is an abomination in God’s sight, and because the church is silent. (As Edmund Burke said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”) The practice of homosexuality is a proud, arrogant attempt to turn God’s creation on its head. (Yes, this sin — this abomination — goes beyond adultery and fornication.) The Titanic has hit the iceberg, and now it is just a matter of time. Look for total destruction any day now. Just a few years ago, we could not imagine Russia, of all nations, rebuking America for its moral decline. Just a few years ago, we could not imagine China telling the U.S. to shut up about the air space, land, and sea space they are taking control of. Just a few years ago, we could not imagine an increase in the number of people renouncing their American citizenship (which is up by 221%). And just a few years ago, we could not imagine Iran sending ships off the American coast to threaten us.
The truth is, President Obama, whom we love and pray for, is suffering from the fact that he never had a father. Therefore, he has no clue what it means to be a man, he lacks wisdom (as we have said since the first year of his presidency), and he has no understanding of the consequences of what he is doing. But, black, white, and Hispanic people put him in office, and we will suffer the consequences for years to come if a national rebuke and repentance does not take place.
If there ever was a time for black men, white men, brown men, and yellow men to band together, to stand up, and to stop an evil that is going to destroy this country, that time is now!
We pray with John the Revelator, ‘Even so, come, Lord Jesus!’

Attorney General Eric Holder said the Justice Department will issue a memo Monday that recognizes same-sex marriages “to the greatest extent possible under the law.”
The federal expansion will include 34 states where same-sex marriage isn’t legal, but the new federal benefits being extended to those states will apply only where the U.S. government has jurisdiction, Holder said.
For example, a same-sex couple legally married in Massachusetts can now have their federal bankruptcy proceeding recognized in Alabama, even though it doesn’t allow same-sex marriages. In the past, the U.S. government could challenge the couple’s joint bankruptcy because Alabama doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage.
Holder’s announcement was revealed in an advance copy of a Saturday night speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s gala in New York City. At its blog, the advocacy group cheered what it called a “landmark announcement” that it “will change the lives of countless committed gay and lesbian couples for the better.”
But Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, criticized what he called the latest move by President Barack Obama’s administration “to undermine the authority and sovereignty of the states to make their own determinations regulating the institution of marriage.”
“The American public needs to realize how egregious and how dangerous these usurpations are and how far-reaching the implications can be,” Brown said in a statement. “The changes being proposed here to a process as universally relevant as the criminal justice system serve as a potent reminder of why it is simply a lie to say that redefining marriage doesn’t affect everyone in society.”
The move affects how millions of Americans interact with their federal government, including bankruptcy cases, prison visitation rights, survivor benefits for police officers and firefighters killed on the job, and the legal right to refuse to testify to incriminate a spouse.
Holder compared his work for the gay rights cause to the 1960s civil rights struggle and then- Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy’s support for equality.
“This means that, in every courthouse, in every proceeding, and in every place where a member of the Department of Justice stands on behalf of the United States — they will strive to ensure that same-sex marriages receive the same privileges, protections and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law,” Holder said of his initiative.
Under the new policy, the Justice Department will recognize that same-sex spouses of individuals involved in civil and criminal cases should have the same legal rights as all other married couples — including the right to decline to give testimony that might incriminate their spouses.
Also, the government won’t contest same-sex married couples their rights in states where previously prosecutors could argue that the marriage is not recognized in the state where the couple lives, Holder said.
Couples in same-sex marriages will be allowed to file for bankruptcy as a couple. This ensures alimony and domestic support debts aren’t discharged in bankruptcy cases. Federal inmates with same-sex spouses will now have full visitation, compassionate release and other benefits.
The Justice Department’s policy change will extend benefits to same-sex couples who benefit from federal programs such as the Sept. 11 Victim Compensation Fund, Radiation Exposure Compensation program and to the families of police officers and firefighters who receive benefits from the Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Program.
“Just like during the civil rights movement of the 1960s, the stakes involved in this generation’s struggle for LGBT equality could not be higher,” Holder said. “As attorney general, I will not let this Department be simply a bystander during this important moment in history.”
