President Obama had promised to be the best friend the gay community ever had in the Whitehouse. During 2011, he delivered on his promise—in spades! The year of 2011 was the year that the Bible was thrown under the bus like no other time.
Prophetic Fulfillments of 2011: Sodomy Good – Bible Bad
By Irvin Baxter
Sodomy was exalted as pure and holy, while the Bible and its teachings were painted as unloving and homophobic. The onslaught of governmental action against traditional values and the glorification of anti-biblical perversion just came in wave after wave.
What does the Bible really say about homosexuality?
Old Testament: Leviticus 20:13,
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
New Testament: Romans 1:26-28,
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
As in the days of Lot…
Lot lived in the city of Sodom until God destroyed it for the sin of homosexuality. The prophecy of Luke 17:28-30 states: “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” We certainly witnessed the fulfillment of this prophecy in 2011!
Following is a small sample of news events recording the incredible assault against biblical morality that occurred throughout 2011.

Los Angeles Times 3/23/11
Reporting from Washington – The Obama administration Tuesday called on the U.N. Human Rights Council to fight discrimination against gays and lesbians around the world.
The statement was the most recent in a series of moves by the Obama administration to show support for gay rights, including holding that the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman, was unconstitutional and moving to end the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays in the military.
California governor signs landmark law to teach gay history
USA TODAY 7/14/11
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill making California the first state in the nation to add lessons about gays and lesbians to social studies classes in public schools.
The new law, SB48, requires the California Board of Education and local school districts to adopt textbooks and other teaching materials that cover the contributions and roles of sexual minorities, as soon as the 2013-2014 school year.
Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a conservative family group, said under the new law parents will have no choice but to take their children out of public school and homeschool them to avoid what he said was “immoral indoctrination.”
“Jerry Brown has trampled the parental rights of the overwhelming majority of California fathers and mothers who don’t want their children to be sexually brainwashed at school,” Thomasson declared.
Senator Feinstein announces plan to repeal federal marriage statute
By Eric Marrapodi
Washington (CNN) – Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, announced Tuesday a bill to repeal the federal law that defines marriage as a “legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife” and that allows states to reject legal same sex marriages from other states.
Feinstein cynically and deceptively called the bill the “Respect for Marriage Act.”

Florida teacher suspended for anti-gay marriage posts on personal Facebook page
By Todd Starnes
A former “Teacher of the Year” in Mount Dora, Fla. has been suspended and could lose his job after he voiced his objection to gay marriage on his personal Facebook page.
Chris Patton, a communication officer with Lake County Schools, said the school system received a complaint on Tuesday about something Buell had written last July when New York legalized same sex unions. On Wednesday, he was temporarily suspended from the classroom and reassigned.
Patton said Buell has taught in the school system for 22 years and has a spotless record. Last year, he was selected as the high school’s “Teacher of the Year.”
But now his job is on the line because of what some have called anti-gay and homophobic comments.
Buell told Fox News Radio that he was stunned by the accusations. “It was my own personal comment on my own personal time on my own personal computer in my own personal house, exercising what I believed as a social studies teacher to be my First Amendment rights,” he said.
With Repeal Of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ An Era Ends
By Liz Halloran
The law that for almost 18 years has banned openly gay Americans from serving in the armed forces will be officially repealed Tuesday, nine months after Congress voted to end the Clinton-era edict.
President Obama signed the repeal into law last December, but its provisions required time for the Pentagon to prepare for the policy change, and for top military officials to “certify” the law’s end.
Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed off on the change in July, and set Tuesday as the end of the law that has long been known as “don’t ask, don’t tell,” or DADT.
Dem Slams Republicans for Tripling Budget forDefense of Gay Marriage Ban
A top Democratic opponent of the Defense of Marriage Act slammed House Republicans after they reportedly tripled the budget for legal defense of the law defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
Republicans have stepped up to fight for the law after the Obama administration announced it would no longer defend it in court, deeming it unconstitutional. Republicans reportedly have raised the salary cap for the lawyer defending it from $500,000 to $1.5 million.
The law dates back to the Clinton administration. At the time, Congress passed it by overwhelming margins.
Republicans say the Obama administration is the one that should be paying for the defense.
US Presbyterian Church Ordains Openly Gay Minister
CBS Minnesota 10/8/11
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has officially ordained a 56-year-old Wisconsin man as its first openly gay minister.
Scott Anderson of Madison was ordained Saturday at Covenant Presbyterian Church during a ceremony attended by hundreds of supporters.
Last year, the Presbyterian national assembly agreed to remove a ban on homosexuals serving as ministers, clearing the way for his ordination.
Supporter Nancy Enderle says the ordination was an “uplifting, joyful gathering.”
According to the Bible, God would see it as an abomination.
Lesbian Couple Crowned Homecoming King and Queen

ABC NEWS 10/30/11
Two California high school students became one of the first lesbian couples crowned homecoming king and queen in the nation this weekend.
Rebeca Arellano, a senior at Patrick Henry High School, was made the school’s first female homecoming king when her name was announced Friday at a pep rally.
Arellano’s girlfriend, Haileigh Adams, who also attends Patrick Henry High School, was made homecoming queen at Saturday night’s dance.
Senate Panel OKs Repeal of Defense of Marriage Act
USA TODAY 11/10/11
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to repeal a federal law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman, but the legislation lacks vote for passage in either House.
The vote was 10-8, with all committee Democrats favoring appeal and all Republicans opposed. The only immediate effect is political: Democrats can show part of their liberal base of backers that they strongly support equality in federal benefits for gay couples.
The repeal bill would need 60 votes in the 100-member Senate, and sponsors acknowledged the votes aren’t there. The measure would have no chance in the House, controlled by conservative Republicans.
California parents can kiss rights goodbye
By Becky Yeh
OneNewsNow California 11/22/11
Come January, a leading California pro-family group says parents in The Golden State will discover “how intrusive” a new anti-family law will be on their parental rights.
S.B. 48, which was recently signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown (D), will take effect January 1, 2012 and mandate positive teachings of lesbian, “gay,” bisexual, and transgender contributions to children of all ages.
Benjamin Lopez, legislative analyst for The Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), says all curricula will be affected by the law.
“The school district up there has already printed materials on how they’re going to teach young elementary kids that there’s more to being just male [or] female—you can be one or the other, you can be both, [or] you can be neither,” he reports.
The TVC legislative analyst adds that the law will present alternate lifestyles to children in a positive light, which will open a Pandora’s box of further pro-“gay” indoctrination.
Lesbian couple get first kiss at Navy homecoming
By Corinne Reilly
The Virginian-Pilot 12/21/11
VIRGINIA BEACH – It’s a time-honored tradition at Navy homecomings—one lucky sailor is chosen to be first off the ship for the long-awaited kiss with a loved one.
Today, for the first time, the happily reunited couple was gay.
The sailor chosen by raffle to be the first off the ship and thus the recipient of the traditional kiss was Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta.
Her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, was waiting when she crossed the brow.
They kissed. The crowd cheered. And with that, another vestige of the policy that forced gays to serve in secrecy vanished.
Whether considering World War III, the coming Middle East Peace Agreement, the emergence of world government, the world’s preparations for a global ID system or the breathtaking advance of sodomy, it is undeniable that the fulfillment of all these prophecies has been proceeding at full speed. All of these fulfillments remind us that we live in the “end of the age” and that the Second Coming of Jesus is just ahead.
