Homosexual activists are angry — and getting angrier by the day — over the perceived lack of action by the Obama administration on their issues. The angst was typified by a march yesterday in Washington, D.C., that the Los Angeles Times gleefully described as “festive” and “boisterous” but that was really more anger-ridden than anything else.
Obama has said he supports repealing the federal Defense of Marriage Act, signed into law by our last Democratic president, Bill Clinton, in 1996. He’s also pledged to repeal the military’s don’t ask, don’t tell policy prohibiting homosexuals from serving openly in the military. But similar to the rationale for his Nobel award, Obama has garnered kudos from the homosexual activist lobby exclusively for his rhetoric, not his actions — because, quite frankly, he’s done nothing.
The fact of the matter, though, is that he doesn’t have to. And he knows it. Voters who place the homosexual agenda high on their list of policy objectives are decidedly left-wing and reliably Democrat in their voting patterns. The Democratic Party establishment, including Obama, knows this. Similarly, the Republican Party establishment knows that it can count on the evangelical Christian vote, provided it pays enough lip service to issues such as abortion and homosexual marriage.
So, in many ways, the homosexual rights coalition is becoming the evangelical Christian community of the left — a reliabe voting pool that the Democrats can take for granted. Could it backfire? Maybe, but I doubt it. Similar to evangelicals, homosexual activists have no other viable third party option. They’re stuck. So they make a lot of noise and hope the establishment listens.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
