Neither Friend of Court or Culture: Obama Asks Supreme Court to Undermine Marriage Comments

On February 28, 2013, the Department of Justice of the Obama  Administration filed what is called a Friend of the Court or Amicus Brief in the case styled Hollingsworth v Perry.It should have come as no surprise to those who have been actually watching Barack Obama and his administration - and not simply buying into the sophistry which they offer with such regularity.

    @ ERic...are you saying that we should have no belief other than a belief in a "new world order "? How Orwellian! But, you see ERic, the new world order that you espouse, is not new. It's been tried and it has failed, while the Christian Faith guided by the flagship known as the Catholic Church sails on. A very large number entering into communion with the Catholic Church are young college graduates who grew up in just the environment that you praise and have found it severely lacking! How I pray that more will become students of history. This is history repeating itself. Nero burns down Rome. Nero whips the ignorant masses into a frenzy against Christians. Nero refuses to accept responsibility for his own actions. But, what our modern day Nero didn't plan on!? Nero didn't plan on brave young men and women of faith coming out from behind church doors and engaging him in the public square. Nero underestimated our resolve and deep seated love of God. The emperor has no clothes!!

    To accept a lie as the new so truth of the way it is,is insincere. Tradition is the foundation of our way of life and Christian tradition is the same yesterday,today and we believe forever,as life is not just the carnal sense of being it is spiritual and eternal. All humanbeings are composed of body,blood and soul. Christ brought us the sense of Divinity. Divinity is the icing on the cake so to speak. Eternal truth is rooted in the faith that our Church seems to so stubbornly hang onto because within the teachings of our Church is the path to eternal life,as in that life is the life where God reigns supreme. Christ is the way to God and the only way. Humankind is denying God and His existence. The Bible has always spoken to the present age because in every age is the choice to either be a person of faith or one without faith. It seems that whatever one chooses to believe,faith or no faith,it is a free choice either way. The economy is the golden calf that most serve as they scratch out a human existence for themselves. Mammon is the concern for earthly and carnal things only. Jesus was obedient to God and through his Holy Sacrifical offering on the Holy Cross He made the Divine to be a reality for all people. Forgiveness is the way of Divinity. To forgive and to be forgiven is a Holy key to Divine Peace on earth as it is in Heaven. If we could only forgive one another we could stop wars. The Sacred is not the option in human negotiations. For that reason we must know that Christ is really the only way to God. The lack of any quality to living in the world today because it is increasingly secular and Godless,is no viable option for any Catholic today. Christians must serve God! ERic I hope that helps to answer your question somewhat. The Apostles always chose to serve God over mammon and so must we as they paid with their lives to follow God as only in God did they see any meaning to the reason for being. They were and we are right to hold on to our Faith. Faith is life's greatest gift,the Holy Catholic Faith.

    ERic, your statements here are tantamount to declaring that the laws of nature, e.g., the law of gravity, are "outdated ideals", as you put it. It's an attitude of pure hedonism.

    No, ERic, we don't believe in your "god", whoever or whatever it is. We believe in God.

    As for worrying about "when the future arrives", we don't. By definition, the future is ... in the future.

    The efforts put into pushing outdated ideals are baffling to me. Instead of the church and its believers putting forth an effort to be a part of the new society that is inevitable, you fight every step of the way. This has been your methods since your beginnings. When the future arrives and you wonder why no one is in the pews or believes in your god, remember, you have only yourself to blame.

    Amanda, pray to Mary and ask Her to help guide you. She will hear your prayers and help you. She understands our pain and suffering.

    Obama has appointed himelf as the "great leader" who knows what is needed to transform America into the "new great society." Obama has told us that men sleeping together and raising children; women sleeping together and raising children; and a man and woman raising their children - it's all the same! That this old notion of the value of having a man and a woman raising children has no real meaning or significance in his "new great society" that he intends to create and have the rest of us conform to this beliefs!.

    in dog we trust: I do have more faith in my dog (Shetland Sheepdog)than in you,Obama,liberal agendas,so called gay marriage,abortion,euthanasia,our sex crazed society and the politics of this age. Is that what you mean by growing up? Than I agree! After all dog is GOD spelled backwards so most of all I have Faith in God,as God defines the meaning of true and a Holy kind of love that we can all share with one another in community with each other. That is true freedom as no one would want any harm to come to anyone. Pray for the common welfare of others and for yourself. God Bless. May your nose be licked by a friendly dog today!

    I disagree with the above headline where it says that Obama asks the Supreme Court to undermine marriage. Obama and his regime ask nothing. They demand. As far as he is concerned he was elected dictator not president and everyone had better obey him. The two houses of Congress seemed willing to do so and I'm beginning to believe the Supreme Court is also. His supporters worship him as a god and messiah and Congress and the Court seem to have joined the cult.

    If a state law does not allow a homosexual individual to marry, i.e. wed one member of the opposite sex, then that's an unequal protection of the law. Gay adults should be able to marry and have the possibility to procreate like anyone else. As for other pair-bondings, don't call them marriage. Even if you have an older man and woman marry, or one has been told they cannot have children, there still is a possibility that one day it could happen, whereas there is NO CHANCE at all that two members of the same sex could conceive a child together. Marriage is a biologically driven need that is unique and that is why it receives special status from any government in the world.

    Marriage in this country was underminded well before homesexual marriage became an issue. Notice how there is virtually a peep about the terrible divorce rate in this country or the public mockery this sacrament receives from so many in the media? I think it's easier to point out homosexual marriage as being a problem than it is to clean up our own house.

    Just another example where by our own actions and silence, we just lack credibility. We can't expect this world to listen to our words when our actions don't follow suit.
