If there’s one big drawback to the Obama administration thus far, it’s that they’ve inspired wingnuts to write a lot about sex again. Witnesseth Michael Novak:
He ties his sexual power to self-sacrificing
communities of love.
Obama’s First Week [Michael Novak]
The Obama presidency is only one week old, but it has already limned its main moral outlines:
On January 20, President Obama called for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. He also declared his intention to give multiple rights and privileges to homosexual couples.
On January 22, he issued an order announcing his intention to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay within one year, but admits he has not figured out how to do that. President Bush had expressed a similar wish, but could find no nations willing to take responsibility for the detainees.
On January 23, President Obama issued an order that authorizes tax dollars for abortions abroad.
From these announcements we learn that President Obama recognizes no difference between the Jewish-Christian covenant between a woman and a man (a covenant that they will have and nurture children, if they are so blessed), and a civil contract between two persons of any sex, in order to set up a household of affection and sexual favors.
That’s just some gangsta shit right there.
Dude, if you knew gay people like I knew gay people, you’d know they generally don’t need a civil contract to procure sexual favors. The reason they’re getting married is because they (gulp!) love each other.
But wait! It’s about to get worse:
This is a relapse into paganism. The point of monogamous family networks is to treat male and female with complementary and mutually cooperative dignity and to tie the power of sexuality (male, especially) to self-sacrificing communities of love.
I can’t say anything to that. Literally, I’ve been staring at my damn computer screen for 20 minutes trying to come up with something funny to say about this, but it’s already perfect in its virginal untouched beauty. So let’s move on:
We learn, second, that this president’s guiding light in matters of national security is not a realistic assessment of the national interest but personal concern for what kind of figure he is cutting in the international eye. Good headlines first, practical thinking later.
Ah. I see. To recap what we’ve learned:
…is a righteous action taken by a God-fearing nation of Jack Bauers, who go out and do the dirty work of society while their Jill Bauers sit at home and cook and clean for them.
On the other hand, this…
…is a sign that our society has become deeply corrupt and amoral and will likely be smited by God any day now.
Dag, this is some hardcore foolishness y’all are putting out there.
