Obama’s Pusillanimity Destroying America’s Virtue

From Plato and Aristotle through the teachings of both the Old Testament and New Testament, right up to our Declaration of Independence, these Classics teach us the importance of the moral virtues: courage, prudence, self-control and justice. This is what is known as character. Exhortation and growth of individual character, combined with humility, leads to magnanimity – a striving for greatness – in society. Pusillanimity is the opposite of magnanimity. It is the depth of selfish character, which futility attempts to raise human choice above Divine direction. By his petulant acts and beliefs, Barack Obama has consistently plumbed the depths of pusillanimity. The latest is a glaring example of his evil character.

Obama’s Justice Department and Department of Education just released a joint letter online to school systems around the nation, telling them they better open their restroom facilities to both genders, else face the wrath of the federal government. “There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” said Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in a written statement entitled “U.S. Departments of Justice and Education Release Joint Guidance to Help Schools Ensure the Civil Rights of Transgender Students.”

The guidance makes clear that schools that receive federal funding cannot discriminate against transgender students based on Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Lynch and Obama are lumping transgenders and other perverts in with that amendment’s prohibition against discrimination based on sex. This argument is faulty on its face. God made men and women. Men have specific genetic coding and traits, as do women. Those, either due to mental illness or willful disobedience of God’s choice, that attempt to call himself “she” (like Bruce Jenner) or herself “he” are no more entitled to protection under this law than would one who call’s himself a beast be entitled to protection under SPCA laws!

But that logic aside, this governmental encroachment into what is inherently a parental and spiritual decision of each child and family is the truly dangerous act here. What Obama is saying is that parents no longer can teach their children that certain acts are inherently wrong. We have allowed our once-limited government to become arbiter of every nuance of daily life. And woes betide any individual who attempts to lead and teach a virtuous lifestyle. Now, not only will they face ridicule by fringe elements of society, like the radical lesbian, gay, queer, transgender, child molester groups, but now punished by their own Federal government.

Folks, this election cycle is the last beachhead in America’s war against such evil insanity. If Hillary Clinton, assuming she is not indicted, or another Democrat gets into the White House; virtuous America will have to face waves of such insanity and will lose the protections of a semi-lucid Supreme Court for the next 25 years.

I will not sit idly by and watch America slouch toward Gomorrah, nor will many of my well-trained friends. But, taking our Republic back by force is a bloody business. Prayerfully, this November, we can partially right the ship so nearly foundered by this maniac in the Oval Office.
