Obama: ‘Our journey is not complete’ until we redefine marriage

By Ben Johnson, LifeSite News

President Barack Obama forcefully advanced the homosexual agenda in his second inaugural address this afternoon, saying redefining marriage must be enacted “by [God's] people here on earth."

“We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall,” he said.
 
The 1969 Stonewall riots, in which homosexuals in drag pelted and attempted to immolate police for raiding a Mafia-run gay bar, are considered by many the genesis of the modern homosexual political movement.
 
“Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well,” the president said.
 
The president endorsed same-sex “marriage” in May, saying he was motivated in part by his Christian faith and his belief in the Golden Rule.
 
Although the president trumpeted his support for redefining marriage during the presidential campaign, he promised to leave the issue to be settled by the states. However, his decision to include gay 'marriage' in an inaugural address alongside issues such as green energy, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and robust entitlement programs, which he has pledged to actively champion, suggests it may be part of the president's legislative, or administrative, agenda.
