Governor Martin O’Malley (D-MD), a prospective challenger to Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) for the Democrat Presidential nomination, come out strongly for same-sex marriage. O’Malley was wont to claim it as a human right (akin to those inalienable rights annunciated in the Declaration of Independence), not a state (or federal) right.
O’Malley’s quip is also a chip against Mrs. Clinton, who went from calling traditional marriage being a fundamental bedrock principle of society to being all in for gay marriage.
Pope Francis has been expressing his faith based perspectives on Gender Theory and the basis of a covenantal sacramental marriage.
It would seem that The Advocate may rue naming Pope Francis the person of the year in 2013.
Prior to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s (D-NY) formal campaign announcement, there were questions about her emails while at the State Department . It was revealed that Mrs. Clinton exclusively used a personal email (HDR22@clintonemail.com) stored on a private server during her tenure at Foggy Bottom. Additionally, Mrs. Clinton only turned over her emails in late 2014 with paper copies of the work emails that she deemed relevant.
Now it has been revealed that House Government Reform and Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA 49th) had sent a letter to the State Department on December 12, 2012 which specifically asked if the Secretary of State ever used a personal email account to conduct official business. Uh oh.
While the Lamestream Media sought to create a frenzy for Hillary’s Mystery Machine Listening Tour road trip to Iowa, Mrs. Clinton is slipping in the polls in key battleground states to Republican challengers. Quinnipiac Poll Assistant Director Peter Brown attributes this drop to the perception that Hillary Clinton is a dishonest politician, which can be attributed to the continuing email embarrassment.
As we commemorate the Sequicentennary of the assassination of our sixteenth President, it is worth noting what were Abraham Lincoln’s last words.
On Good Friday of 1865 the President had taken his wife on a carriage ride and later to see the play “Our American Cousins” at Ford’s Theater in Washington, DC. The Civil War was coming to a victorious conclusion. Although Lincoln had just began his second term, he was contemplating his post presidency plans with his wife Mary Todd Lincoln. President Lincoln did not want to return to Springfield, Illinois after his term ended. He longed for anonymity abroad, including visiting Jerusalem. It is said that Lincoln whispered in his wife’s ear about visiting the Holy Land before John Wilkes Booth shot him.
It is ironic that Lincoln had been an aggrieved atheist (or perhaps a soul lashing out of anger at God) for part of his life. But the many tragedies which President Lincoln suffered as an adult along with the weight of the War Between the States was met with good Christian pastoring. Lincoln transformed the suffering into a holy impulse.
Could this be just hope filled hagiography, as Mary Todd Lincoln was not exactly a stable source. Maybe. But it is much more believable than the LGBTQQ? community revisionist history claiming Lincoln as a bisexual —what stuff!
