And the Band Played On...

"I am honored to invite these talented groups and individuals to participate in the Inaugural Parade," said President-elect Obama. "These organizations embody the best of our nation's history, diversity and commitment to service. Vice President-elect Biden and I are proud to have them join us in the parade." - From the CNA article.

These organizations embody the best of our nation's history? The Lesbian and Gay Band Association (LGBA) will be marching in the Southern Decadence Parade. The Southern Decadence event has become known as the "Gay Mardi Gras" (see the official website here).

As Paul Rondeau explains, "Among America's culture wars, one of today's most intense controversies rages around the issue alternatively identified, depending on one's point of view, as 'normalizing homosexuality' or 'accepting gayness.' The debate is truly a social-ethical-moral conceptual war that transcends both the scientific and legal, though science and law most often are the weapon of choice. The ammunition of these weapons, however, is persuasion." (Paul E. Rondeau, "Selling Homosexuality to America," Regent University Law Review, 2002, Vol. 14, p. 443. Available here.

If you're one of those who is convinced that President-elect Obama has "moved to the center" in recent weeks, you are only deceiving yourself. The Obama administration plans on advancing a radical homosexual agenda. Elements of the LGBA do not "embody the best of our nation's history." They embody perversion*. And there is nothing noble about that.

*Saint John Chrysostom denounces homosexual acts as being contrary to nature. Commenting on the Epistle to the Romans (1: 26-27), he says that the pleasures of sodomy are an unpardonable offense to nature and are doubly destructive, since they threaten the species by deviating the sexual organs away from their primary procreative end and they sow disharmony between men and women, who no longer are inclined by physical desire to live together in peace.

The brilliant Patriarch of Constantinople employs most severe words for the vice we are analyzing. Saint John Chrysostom makes this strong argument: “All passions are dishonorable, for the soul is even more prejudiced and degraded by sin than is the body by disease; but the worst of all passions is lust between men…. The sins against nature are more difficult and less rewarding, since true pleasure is only the one according to nature. But when God abandons a man, everything is turned upside down! Therefore, not only are their passions [of the homosexuals] satanic, but their lives are diabolic….. So I say to you that these are even worse than murderers, and that it would be better to die than to live in such dishonor. A murderer only separates the soul from the body, whereas these destroy the soul inside the body….. There is nothing, absolutely nothing more mad or damaging than this perversity.” (St. John Chrysostom, In Epistulam ad Romanos IV, in J. McNeill, op. cit., pp. 89-90)

I wonder if Obama and Biden have invited the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" as well?

From OneNewsNow:

Is there an Obama-Blagojevich connection?

A former Republican presidential candidate says the political corruption scandal involving Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich could result in top advisors to Barack Obama being called to testify before a grand jury very early in his administration.

President-elect Obama has called on Governor Rod Blagojevich to resign for allegedly trying to trade favors for Obama's vacant Illinois senate seat. Although Obama says he had no contact with the governor or his office on the matter, in an interview last month on Fox News Chicago, top Obama advisor David Axelrod said otherwise.

"I know he [Obama] has talked to the governor -- and there are a whole range of names, many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them," said Axelrod.

Yesterday, Axelrod issued a retraction, saying "I was mistaken....They did not then or at any time discuss the subject."

If Barack Obama is linked to the Blagojevich scandal,

how will the mainstream media handle it?

Gary Bauer, president of American Values, says as more details of the Blagojevich case unfold, Obama could be facing a public-relations nightmare because of his strong connection to Democratic Party politics in Chicago.

"Certainly this is an astonishing indictment," Bauer offers. "On its face it shows a tremendous degree of illegality and of corruption. We just have to wait and see whether that corruption extended or in any way touched the incoming president."

According to Bauer, "it requires the willing suspension of disbelief to suggest that Mr. Obama, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, and Governor Blagojevich have not talked since the election."

According to the CNA article, a groups which wishes to participate in the inaugural parade applies to the Armed Forces Inaugural Committee, which sends experienced military musicians to evaluated the group's presentation skills. Is this the beginning of the end of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy?
