(Worthy News) - President Barack Obama said that his understanding of the Bible and his Christian beliefs led him to issue the directive at public schools calling on students to be allowed to use the bathroom of their choosing regardless of their biological sex.

"My reading of scripture tells me that that [the] Golden Rule is pretty high up there in terms of my Christian belief," he said during a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, according to Breitbart News on Thursday.

When asked why he decided to make such a big issue out of school bathrooms, Obama explained that his concern stems from the bullying that transgender students experience.

Evangelical leaders, from Franklin Graham to Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, have rejected Obama's ideas, citing God's creation of two clear gender. [ ... Read More (Source) ]

  1. Obama presupposes people with the mental illness of sexual confusion "would have" others support their continued illness!

    He must think the mention of "Obama-Nation" is a good thing in Deuteronomy 22:5:
    "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."

  2. Even Satan knows scripture and will twist it. Obama is doing the same thing. Perhaps he thinks that referring to scripture will "convince" Believers to hop on the bandwagon of this issue.

  3. The Golden Rule is not taught in the Word of God anywhere. What the Word of God does teach about genders can be found in:

    Genesis 1:26-27 (KJV)

    "26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

    Genesis 2:21-24 (KJV)

    "21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

    22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

    23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

    24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

    The God calls men who lay with another man, or women who lay with another woman --- an abomination in the Book of Romans:

    Romans 1:18-32 (God's Word Translation)

    God’s Anger against Sinful Humanity

    "18 God’s anger is revealed from heaven against every ungodly and immoral thing people do as they try to suppress the truth by their immoral living. 19 What can be known about God is clear to them because he has made it clear to them. 20 From the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly observed in what he made. As a result, people have no excuse. 21 They knew God but did not praise and thank him for being God. Instead, their thoughts were pointless, and their misguided minds were plunged into darkness. 22 While claiming to be wise, they became fools. 23 They exchanged the glory of the immortal God for statues that looked like mortal humans, birds, animals, and snakes.

    24 For this reason God allowed their lusts to control them. As a result, they dishonor their bodies by sexual perversion with each other. 25 These people have exchanged God’s truth for a lie. So they have become ungodly and serve what is created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen!

    26 For this reason God allowed their shameful passions to control them. Their women have exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 Likewise, their men have given up natural sexual relations with women and burn with lust for each other. Men commit indecent acts with men, so they experience among themselves the punishment they deserve for their perversion.

    28 And because they thought it was worthless to acknowledge God, God allowed their own immoral minds to control them. So they do these indecent things. 29 Their lives are filled with all kinds of sexual sins, wickedness, and greed. They are mean. They are filled with envy, murder, quarreling, deceit, and viciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, haughty, arrogant, and boastful. They think up new ways to be cruel. They don’t obey their parents, 31 don’t have any sense, don’t keep promises, and don’t show love to their own families or mercy to others. 32 Although they know God’s judgment that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do these things but also approve of others who do them."

    There is no teaching at all about a so-called "The Golden Rule" in The Word of God. This just goes to show that Obama does not understand what the Word of God teaches, nor does Obama fear God, because if he did fear God then he would not be supporting homosexuality of any kind, because Obama would know that GOD ALMIGHTY is a GOD of HIS WORD and that GOD keeps HIS WORD without change throughout the ages. Anyone who does not fear GOD is a foolish person, and they do not see that the wrath of God abides on them, if they do not repent (turn away from their sins) and ask God to forgive them for their sins, and accept the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the final atonement for their sins once and for all (everyone/all time), and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their lives and souls, so to be saved from death, hell and the lake of fire and be given eternal life (the Holy Spirit). If a person does not willing believe and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior then the Wrath of God abides on them and if they die without Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, then these people will die in their sins and will have chosen Hell and eternal separation from the presence of God.

    • Very true! And don't forget about the Ten Commandments! In Exodus 20:12 God gives the commandment to "Honour thy father and thy mother." Notice it says FATHER and MOTHER!

    • "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is what is referred to as the Golden Rule. In the book of Luke? We clearly are called throughout scripture to love others greatly. Never their sin...but them. God judges; we love. Without our love they may never see God and catch a glimpse of his greatness.

  4. Just like people who think transgender is ok, he to is confused, he spends his lifetime trying to remove God and Christianity from our schools, our work place, and all government buildings, then he tries to use the Bible to promote his true agenda, Mr. President you need to realize the veil has been removed from our eyes, John 8:32 tells us you will know the truth and truth will set you free.

  5. Everyone seems to be well versed in BIBLE here. Where are you when these Leaders are running for office? Fast Asleep in your "Religion" Its easy to quote a Scripture, its a whole New Ballgame to see you living it out in your Lives. The Church is Powerless because it lacks Spirit and Truth. The Youth have abandon ship because they see you Draw near with your lips but your hearts are far from Him. Pastors hooked on PORN Elders and Deacons smoking like freight trains out front as everyone watches, all the things you do in Darkness will soon be exposed by the Light. Obama says he's a "Christian" HaHa so do you! Your FRUIT stinks. Wake Up
