(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama has named to the federal government’s faith-based initiative a gay-rights activist who, last month, described Pope Benedict XVI and certain Catholic bishops as “discredited leaders” because of their opposition to same-sex marriage.
Harry Knox, who is a newly appointed member of Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, is the director of the religion and faith program at the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual activist group.
In addition to his remarks about the Pope, Knox also criticized the Catholic Knights of Columbus as being “foot soldiers of a discredited army of oppression” because of the Knights’ support of Proposition 8. The latter was a ballot initiative that amended California’s state constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman, and passed in November 2008.
“This is exactly the kind of bastardization of common sense that the Obama people are putting forth,” Donohue told CNSNews.com. “Quite frankly, I would prefer to see the entire faith-based initiative closed down. They’re going to use this as political capital in the Obama administration to say, ‘We reach out to people of faith.’ The whole thing is a sham.”
“I’d rather people simply be honest and say we don’t believe in faith-based initiatives as they were initially intended by the previous administration, and what we’re going to do is thoroughly politicize them with these gay activists,” said Donohue.
No doubt about it. Obama has a hidden agenda. He's a radical extremist doing the bidding of powerful, wealthy radical extremists who effectively control him from behind the scenes. He's appointing people who are totally wrong for the positions to which they're appointed. He's reengineering American society without a specific mandate to do so and attacking the Christian faith in the name of what his supporters call "human rights". No wonder some consider him an "AntiChrist".
I'd like to see Obama impose GLBT militancy on the Muslims, too... but of course he never will. He wouldn't dare anger Allah by doing such a thing, would he? After all, the Taqiyya (lying) and the convenient abrogation (in which the Koran contradicts itself, conveniently) and so on and so forth, they can only be taken so far...
