All over the world, Christians are being murdered by followers of radical Islam just because of their faith. Meanwhile, here in America, a sexually confused teenager committed suicide by walking in front of a semi-truck.
Both tragic stories, but do you know which one “moved” Obama the most?
A petition on the White House website that garnered more than 120,000 signatures, well above the threshold required to receive a response from the administration, described how a 17-year-old transgender wrote a suicide note, posted it on social media, and walked in front of a semi-truck after allegedly receiving conversion therapy.
Valerie Jarrett, the real president, said in an interview with the New York Times that Obama had been emotionally moved by the teen’s tale. “It’s not the story of one young person,” Jarrett said. “It is the story of countless young people who have been subjected to this.”
So, what will Obama do to ease his troubled mind? He’ll call for a ban on gay-conversion therapies.
In the official response from the White House on the petition, Jarrett posted: “We share your concern about its potentially devastating effects on the lives of transgender as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual, and queer youth. As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors.”
White House officials are saying that Obama isn’t going to push too hard for Congress to pass legislation banning the therapy, which makes sense when you consider that he never uses Congress for lawmaking. One Executive Order mixed with the spineless Republicans in Congress will do the trick.
Apparently, Obama has added psychologist to his list of titles. And in essence, he is declaring his superior knowledge on the subject of conversion therapy while seizing an opportunity to restrict your rights to raise your child as you see fit.
The world is full of sad stories. Obama’s priorities on these and other issues is one more.
