President Obama is promoting gay rights globally with the State Department spending millions of our tax dollars on these efforts in other countries. However, after a recent March for Marriage (traditional marriage), the Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone, said that a united family is based on the children’s father and mother being married, which is good for society. Every child comes from a man and a woman and has a right to know and be known by, to love and be loved by his or her mother and father.

Genesis 2:24 states, “Therefore, a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife and they become one flesh.”

It is widely believed that the Lord punished Sodom and Gomorrah for practicing homosexuality.
