COME ON MR. PRESIDENT: “WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama sends his congratulations To Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team. Obama calls the selection of Sam "an important step forward." Obama says that from the playing field to the corporate boardroom, gay and lesbian Americans, quote, "prove every day that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are." Sam was the Associated Press defensive player of the year in the Southeastern Conference. He was picked late Saturday in the third and final day of the NFL draft by the St Louis Rams. Sam played college football at the University of Missouri and came out as openly gay in media interviews earlier this year.”         

Come on Mr. President, you are smarter than this. You are smart enough to know that people will be judged. You are smart enough to know that people should be judged by what they do. You are right about that! What a homosexual is doing is an abomination to God! It is vile and unnatural.  “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22) “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 recompence 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.” (Romans 1:26-28) Come on Mr. President, how can you openly support something that God so forcefully condemns?

          Come on Mr. President how can you promote the abortion (MURDER) of almost 4,000 innocent babies a day? God hates those who shed innocent blood and what blood could be more innocent than the blood of a precious, unborn child. “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” (Proverbs 6:16-19) Come on Mr. President, people will be judged by what they do and you are very guilty of promoting wrong doing.

          The good news is that God wants you, Michael Sam, and all other sinners to repent, obey God and go to heaven. Then Peter said unto them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 2:38) Let us all have a heart to do the will of God. It is not enough, Mr. President, just to claim to be a Christian. In your own words you said, “We will be judged by what we do!” I beg you; look at what you are doing.
