The White House Issues Benefits to Same-Sex Partners of Government Employees

lc.org update:
On June 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signed a presidential memorandum granting benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees. President Obama’s action follows closely behind his proclamation declaring June to be “LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgendered) Pride Month” as a second official action favoring the homosexual community. As a result, for the first time in our nation’s history, homosexual partners of federal employees will receive benefits just short of health insurance and retirement funding.

Relared artice [A matter of pride?
R. Albert Mohler, Jr. - "Morally serious persons must take the president's proclamation as a morally serious act. As such, it demands a response. Evangelical Christians dare not respond with a claim of moral superiority as if we are not ourselves sinners. But we must be clear that we cannot find pride in sin, whether these are our own sins or those of others. The Gospel of Christ simply does not allow us to see sin -- any sin -- as a matter of pride." ]

Traditional marriage is the building block of a stable society and a foundational Biblical principle. With a stroke of his pen, the President has single-handedly undermined the foundation of marriage with no input from the legislature, judiciary or the people of the United States.

Responsible citizenship requires action. One of the most effective ways to express your displeasure over President Obama's action is to politely call the White House through the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
