The 2 new little kitties:
Walk Like an Egyptian…
First he declared that America isn’t “a Christian nation.” Now President Obama is telling the world that his country is a Muslim one. In a stunning interview with France’s Canal Plus, he said, “If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” The statement, one in a long line of White House shockers, is part of the administration’s campaign to soften the opposition to America in advance of the President’s speech to the Islamic world tomorrow. As ABC’s Jake Tapper puts it, President Obama is getting in touch with his “inner-Muslim,” even embracing “Hussein,” his once-taboo middle name.
Wednesday, the President is hoping his silky oratory will translate well in Cairo, where he will try to charm the Arab nations with his Muslim roots. While the White House may talk a good game, this President’s agenda is the embodiment of every immorality the Islamic world detests about the West. In five months, his policies have endorsed global promiscuity, sodomy, and abortion. Just last Friday, his Baghdad embassy presided over the region’s first “drag party” in the middle of a war zone. Like a growing number of Americans, the Middle East sees the tension between the President’s rhetoric and the global reality. This kind of duplicity only fans the flames of anti-American sentiment.
While the President speaks of peace and reconciliation on the Arab stage, American soldiers are being gunned down in the U.S. by Muslim converts. On Monday, a 24-year-old Army recruiter was killed and another wounded by Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammed in Arkansas. The suspect admitted to the killing, blaming “what [the Army] had done to Muslims in the past.”
As my friend Gary Bauer pointed out in his End of Day, “President Obama, who immediately condemned the murder of abortionist George Tiller on Sunday, still has not–24 hours later–said one word about the cowardly attack on these soldiers. The U.S. Justice Department, which sent federal marshals yesterday to guard abortion clinics, has sent no one to guard our military recruitment offices, even though more than 100 of those offices have been attacked in recent years… I guess he was just too busy pouring over his… proclamation declaring June ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.'”

U.S. to Gay Couples: ‘Howdy, Partners!’
Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the “Uniting American Families Act,” a bill that would allow homosexuals to immigrate to the U.S. with their partners under the same resident status as married spouses. As FRC has argued, there is no reason for Congress to carve out an exception to the immigration rule to accommodate these “partnerships.” In my written testimony, which was submitted today to the Judiciary Committee, I reiterated the fact that “families” are legally recognized by blood, marriage, or adoption. In other words, these same-sex “partnerships” don’t constitute “family” relationships.
Although Chairman Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) frames the policy as an anti-discrimination measure, the truth is, it weakens our federal law and chips away at the unique status of marriage. For the federal government to recognize homosexual pairs in any way, shape, or form is a violation of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
Interestingly enough, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) also submitted written testimony to the Judiciary Committee, but in support of S. 424. In five pages, the organization never once mentions the words “homosexual” or “same-sex” to describe these partnerships. Obviously, it’s part of the broader strategy to deceive the NAACP’s largely pro-marriage constituency into supporting the bill. Let your senators know that the “Uniting American Families Act” isn’t fooling you. Contact Capitol Hill today and ask your senators to vote “no” on S. 424.
