President Obama's Garnish

The Garnish
(by R.P.Edwards)

They treat Him like a garnish
Not fish…or fowl…or meat
A bobble for the masses
Not something
That you eat
A “nothing,” meant to placate
Diverting common view
So they can feed us poison
Disguised as good…and true

A couple years back, the then “chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” Marine General, Peter Pace, said, “I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way.”  By “immoral” the good general was referring to homosexuality; putting it in the same class as adultery.  He was, as you might surmise, a proponent of the ongoing “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy, whereby military personnel were, and are, forbidden to enquire as to ones sexuality, and, if homosexual behavior became, or becomes known…expulsion is the result.

Now, fast forward to 2010.  President Obama declares that “it’s the right thing to do” to abolish the policy that has served us so well these many years and give homosexuality equal standing with race.  Yes, the chief executive has put his stamp of approval on what has been traditionally referred to as an aberrant lifestyle, and is trying his best to bring the rest of us…up to speed.  Sigh.

Let me step aside for a moment.  I am not involved in a crusade against homosexuals.  I frankly don’t care what people do in their bedrooms.  But, when it comes to the efficiency and continuity of the armed forces; social engineering has no place. 

But let’s get to the “meat” of the complaint; in the oval office we now have a president who, although he is quick to acknowledge Jesus Christ and drop a Christian phrase; he has shown himself to be very pro-abortion, and very pro-gay agenda.  Frankly, the two sides don’t mix, and it grieves me that so many of my brothers and sisters are indifferent when their precious Savior is continually dragged through the mud. 

But, that’s just me.  Perhaps I’m out of touch.  Perhaps the new Christianity, as defined by academia and Hollywood; perhaps that’s the way to go.  After all, these elites have done so much for me.  They built this great nation, suffering through toil and trouble.  They left their blood on the beaches of Iwo Jima and Normandy.  They laid their lives down at Bunker Hill and Gettysburg.  They have shown, through their tireless, timeless striving and their years-long suffering and sacrifice that they know how to humbly bow and enquire of the divine mind.  To touch, perchance, He who endowed us with our rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” 

Excuse me.  A moment of insanity.  Actually I think the morality of the elite is akin to the foam that gathers on the top of a cesspool. 

By-the-way, the other night I heard the testimony of a “former homosexual” who said that because of Jesus Christ (the real one), his desires were now directed towards women, not men.  If you, or anyone you know is looking for an “out” from the gay lifestyle, following is a link to an organization that can help:
Exodus International

That’s what I think.  How about you.  Click comments below…and say

Obama's desire to repeal "Don't ask, don't tell" can actually help to fulfill the "days of Lot" (Luke 17, cf. Gen. 19), the fulfillment of which will hurry up the return of the Heavenly Commander-in-Chief who will make all things straight (pun intended)! Interesting Google articles include "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "Obama Avoids Bible Verses," "Separation of Raunch and State" and "David Letterman's Hate Etc." - required reading for the "Obama 101" course.
PS - You're invited to use these new pro-life slogans: "Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms - and legs and ears and eyes etc.!" and "Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!"
