500 Clerics Pray Obam Repents on Federal Sex Policies
Over 325,000 US Congregations
Vista, CA (Thursday, October 30) – Over 500 rabbis, priests and pastors have called upon their peers in every Jewish and Christian congregation to pray this weekend for Barack Obama’s “repentance” from his “Federal Sex Policies”: same-sex unions, gay military integration, partial birth abortion and federal “sexual orientation” laws on churches and businesses.
Via millions of emails, faxes, “robo-calls”, “Interfaith Video Sermons” and direct mail to the nation’s 325,000 synagogues and churches, the 500 clerics accuse Obama of circulating campaign literature in churches that “fails to disclose” his support for homosexuality and “child sacrifice”. Obama favors full repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, which shields states from forced legal recognition of same-sex marriages originating in Massachusetts, California and Connecticut. He pledges that his first act as president would be to sign a bill repealing all restrictions on partial birth abortion, which involves piercing fetal skulls during delivery. Obama opposes requiring that parents be notified prior to a teenage daughter’s abortion and he blocked an Illinois bill to protect infant abortion survivors.
The 500 clerics are signatories to the inaugural edition of The Judeo-Christian View, “a multimedia journal of opinion for rabbis, priests, pastors and religious laity” with print and online editions. The signatories write: Obama “contested the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by declaring that, ‘I do not agree with General Pace that homosexuality is immoral.’ Well, Senator, how about agreeing with your Creator?”
Obama supports enacting federal non-discrimination laws that equate “sexual orientation” with qualities like race. The signers say, “as pastors and rabbis writing jointly, we simply cannot support any social agenda that falsely equates the inherent, G_d-given traits of race and ethnicity with G_d-forbidden carnal desires and volitional decisions to pursue immoral sexual relations – or which asserts the ‘right’ to kill an innocent, fully-formed child at the very point of birth. The Law, Prophets and all of Scripture compel us to preach and teach that a decision to sacrifice the life of a child or to pursue same-sex intercourse or lesbianism, is a gravely serious matter of… sin.”
The signatories continue, “If a politician holds that homosexuality is not immoral… then we as leaders have both the right and the sacred, affirmative duty to somehow make sure our congregations know the documented facts. If, like ancient King Manasseh or Herod, a sitting or aspiring leader endorses child sacrifice – especially by bloody, excruciating means such as Partial Birth Abortion – we must not only preach from the Bible on the sanctity of innocent human life, we are honor-bound to alert our congregations to precisely what sort of barbarism that person stands for…Sadly, these are indeed things for which Sen. Obama defiantly has stood, against the Torah and all of Scripture. And, in campaign literature circulating to churchgoers this year, Sen. Obama has not clearly disclosed these positions…We believe in the power of prayer and redemption to turn hearts and minds. We are duty and honor-bound, however, to firmly oppose the policies on same-sex unions and child sacrifice that Sen. Obama has formally embraced – and of which we must earnestly pray he repents, whatever office and influence he wields next year.”
The signatories include: Rev. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Father Frank Pavone, Roman Catholic head of Priests for Life; Rabbi Herzel Kranz from The Jewish Center of Silver Spring, Maryland; Rev. Rosemary Schindler, San Francisco Board of the Anti-Defamation League and member of the Oscar Schindler family (of Schindler’s List); Dr. James M. Hutchens, Brigadier General and Deputy Chief of US Army Chaplains (Ret.); Dr. Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of Moody Memorial Church, Chicago; and Rabbi Yehuda Levin of the Rabbinical Alliance of America of Torah Loyal Jews and The Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada. Email and fax blasts from The Judeo-Christian View have gone to millions of clerics and laity, urging prayer and preaching this weekend for Obama’s repentance.
The rabbi, priest and pastor signers also state, “Full embrace of homosexual unions by our nation and the next administration would tell violent Islamists that the infidel USA has expressly rejected once-shared Abrahamic, Mosaic and Christian teaching regarding ‘sodomy’. So too would flagrant ‘gay integration’ of our overseas military forces. We advocate “love the sinner, hate the sin”; militant Islamists would murder our fellow Americans for sexual error, as well as us for offering them hope and forgiveness!” The online edition graphically condemns Islamist executions of gays, young girls and women domestically and abroad. The print edition included two DVD’s for Jewish and Christian congregations: An “Interfaith Video Sermon” and the award-winning documentary, Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West.
