Does President Obama Agree with Jesus?

You decide! This past Sunday (October 11), CNN reported:

Obama to gay group: ‘Still laws to change, hearts to open’

...President Obama delivered a rousing speech Saturday night to the nation’s largest gay rights group, praising the gay community for making strides in equal rights...

Human Rights Campaign issued a statement praising the speech, saying it was a “historic night when we felt the full embrace and commitment of the president of the United States. It’s simply unprecedented.”

The president said he backed the rights of gay couples, saying they should have the “same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple in this country.” He said he has urged Congress to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and to pass the Domestic Partners Benefit and Obligations Act.

This past June from the White House website we read:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.”

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Creator, Savior, the Truth, the Way, and the WORD in Matthew 19: 4–5 states:

“Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh’?”
