Is your life built on a Solid Rock (Jesus) or is it built upon Sinking Sand (world)? Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6

President Obama Endorses LGBT Youth 'Spirit Day'
By Kathleen Gilbert
WASHINGTON, D.C., October 22, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Barack Obama has issued a message exhorting young people who consider themselves homosexual to "be true to" themselves and recognize their sexual tendencies as "a source of pride, and a source of strength."
Obama issued the remarks in the wake of a nationwide "Spirit Day" in which celebrities, media, and schools across the nation wore purple to express solidarity with homosexual youths who have committed suicide. Click here to read the full story.
This is a very passionate and heartfelt speech that our president is giving to the young folks out there that are being bullied because of their sexual orientation. There is never a good reason to bully another person! My heart continues to go out to those lost souls who could not see a light at the end of the tunnel but only a freight train coming at them.
My heart is saddened because the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) hailed the video of the president's speech as an "historic" boost to the homosexualist campaign towards youth. "The President's empathy and concern, so clearly and directly expressed, is an historic contribution to the outpouring of support for LGBT youth we have seen over the past few weeks," stated the GLSEN blog. No wonder our young folks are so mixed up with all of the different signals they are getting bombarded with.
I continue to pray for the families that are left behind to deal with the end-results of suicide. I pray for the young folks out there who allow their sexual desires to overcome them to the point of sinning against our Almighty God. My prayer is that they will repent of their sins and come back to the Lord and allow Him to get them through these tough times in their lives. May our Lord have mercy on our souls.
