JACKSON: Obama Has Destroyed Our Values
2/5/2014, 3 p.m.
Obama is a president who has told our kids that illegal behavior should be rewarded—citizenship to those who have entered our country illegally. So then how do parents make the arguments to their kids that breaking the rules have consequences when our own president tells 30 million illegals that America will not enforce their own laws when it comes to our immigration policy?
How does Obama reconcile telling kids that your sexual identity is not determined at birth, but rather by you self-identifying what your sexuality is based on your mood on any given day? You were born with male genitalia, but you self-identify as a female. Huh? That is not medically or scientifically possible.
So, now he is telling kids that using drugs is okay.
Since Obama and Democrats believes it takes a village to raise a child; how does a parent explain to their child that the president is wrong on these issues? Granted, no one should have more influence on your kid than you, as a parent.
We are becoming a country of no laws, boundaries, morals, or values. A country cannot survive when there are no rules governing acceptable behavior. Before Obama, it was unthinkable that illegals would be given rights that even American citizens cannot get, i.e., instate tuition for university. Before Obama, it was inconceivable that our foreign aid would be predicated on forcing countries to aggressively promote homosexual entitlements in their countries.
Two months ago no one in this country would have ever thought they would see the day when a sitting president would pronounce, in the White House, that he supported legalizing drugs. As Jeremiah asked in his day, I also ask, “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered (Jeremiah 8:22)?
For the last five years, our nation has had a vicious assault on God and Christianity. We have been bombarded with messages that there are no absolutes, everything is relative. Man has become the measure of all things; to acknowledge the existence of a God has become a punch line in the public square.
I am convinced that the next presidential candidate that addresses these issues from a “traditional values” perspective will be the next president of the United States. We have drifted too far to the left and we must find a candidate that truly believes in traditional values.
