Barack Obama is at it yet again with forcing his agenda down the collective throats of America, and his latest move has quite a few people upset.
By decree or by law, Obama is hell-bent on ramming every last bit of his far-left agenda down our throats, and it’s evident he’s not going to stop until he’s no longer in office. His latest move involves his pen and executive authority.
In a statement on the White House’s website, Obama declared June “LGBT Pride Month” and he’s demanding we all “recognize all they have done to bring us to this point” after those within the LGBT community “have spurred sweeping progress by changing hearts and minds and by demanding equal treatment — under our laws, from our courts, and in our politics.”

Since our founding, America has advanced on an unending path toward becoming a more perfect Union. This journey, led by forward-thinking individuals who have set their sights on reaching for a brighter tomorrow, has never been easy or smooth. The fight for dignity and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people is reflected in the tireless dedication of advocates and allies who strive to forge a more inclusive society. They have spurred sweeping progress by changing hearts and minds and by demanding equal treatment — under our laws, from our courts, and in our politics. This month, we recognize all they have done to bring us to this point, and we recommit to bending the arc of our Nation toward justice.
Last year’s landmark Supreme Court decision guaranteeing marriage equality in all 50 States was a historic victory for LGBT Americans, ensuring dignity for same-sex couples and greater equality across State lines. For every partnership that was not previously recognized under the law and for every American who was denied their basic civil rights, this monumental ruling instilled newfound hope, affirming the belief that we are all more free when we are treated as equals.
LGBT individuals deserve to know their country stands beside them. That is why my Administration is striving to better understand the needs of LGBT adults and to provide affordable, welcoming, and supportive housing to aging LGBT Americans. It is also why we oppose subjecting minors to the harmful practice of conversion therapy, and why we are continuing to promote equality and foster safe and supportive learning environments for all students. We remain committed to addressing health disparities in the LGBT community — gay and bisexual men and transgender women of color are at a particularly high risk for HIV, and we have worked to strengthen our National HIV/AIDS Strategy to reduce new infections, increase access to care, and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2016 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand sixteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
Nice, right? I’m sure we can all agree that the lifestyle choices of others aren’t exactly something that needs to be “celebrated” on the national level, especially considering that one of the many “accomplishments” by members of the gay community have been to systematically target Christian-owned businesses for destruction via legal fiat. Although to be fair, the vast majority of those within the LGBT community are harmless and merely just want to live their lives without being bothered, which almost nobody has an issue with.
But let’s be honest, there’s still numerous parents and families that don’t agree with this sort of lifestyle and don’t want their children exposed to it, including many within the Muslim and Jewish communities, which makes this move nothing more than a slap in the face to them. Granted, we’re all Americans and deserve equal protection under the law, but this is one contentious and divisive issue the president should keep his nose out of, which is where the problem arises.
Obama needs to stay away from social issues and focus on what presidents are supposed to be doing – running the country and defending its people, not being a social justice warrior and using the highest office in the world as his podium.
