Obama Claims Christianity - 'The Golden Rule' - As Basis For Promoting Homosexual Psuedo-Marriage

President Says He Supports Same-Sex Marriage Because of Christianity

(Excerpted from 5-9-12 Robin Roberts television interview)

[Barack Obama:] “This is something ['gay' marriage] that, you know, we’ve talked about over the years and she, you know, [the First Lady] feels the same way, she feels the same way that I do. And that is that, in the end the values that I care most deeply about and she cares most deeply about is how we treat other people and, you know, I, you know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated.”
Briefly, it is very important to note that the so-called Golden Rule - "whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them" (Matt. 7:12) - regardless of who may say different, cannot in any possible way be construed as an endorsement of any activity which the Word of God in another place labels as "unrighteous":

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1Cor.6:9-10

Far from the Holy Bible, by any stretch of the imagination, being used to sanction homosexual behavior and/or homosexual pseudo-marriage, the above verses from the inerrant Word of God are actually an unequivocal condemnation of homosexuality. This is made indisputable, interestingly enough, by the very significant fact that the word "homosexual" is not even used. No, a much more descriptive and graphic phrase is used to translate the original New Testament Greek word for "homosexual" into the English language. In 1Cor 6:9, the Greek word "arsenokoites" is translated into the English phrase "abusers of themselves with mankind".

Strong's Greek dictionary gives the definition "sodomite":arsenokoites (ar-sen-ok-oy'-tace) : from 730 and 2845; a sodomite:--abuser of (that defile) self with mankind

(The Greek word itself, as seen, is a composite of two other words...#730 "arsen" which means male, and #2845 "koite" which basically means 'intercourse'; Vines Expository Dictionary.)

Arsenokoites. Here is no innocuous name, but a definitive incrimination of the very act. "Abusers of themselves...".

Furthermore, and also highly significant to note from the 1Cor. 6:9-10 scripture passage, is that "arsenkoites" are not a special category as they would have us believe, but are just a sub-group of a broader classification of general sinners, i.e. rebels against the holiness and authority of God Almighty. They are not set apart for special treatment in the Word of God, which by the way is "for ever" (1Peter 1:24-25), but are lumped in with fornicators of every stripe, along with idolaters, adulterers, thieves, drunkards, etc.. This category is known as "the unrighteous". Thus saith the Lord God.

Ephesians 5:6 'Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience'
