Frank Criticizes Condi on Gay U.N. Positions
NewsMax.com ^ | 3 February 2006 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 02/02/2006 7:26:01 PM PST by Aussie Dasher

Democratic Rep. Barney Frank has criticized Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for her role in the rejection of two international gay civil rights groups by a United Nations body.

Last month, the U.N. Economic and Social Council, a think tank made up of nongovernmental agencies from around the world, voted not to admit the International Lesbian and Gay Association and the Danish Association of Gays and Lesbians.

According to 365Gay.com, their application to join other nongovernmental agencies on the council was rejected without a hearing after the United States voted with some of the world's most repressive regimes, including Iran, Zimbabwe, China, Cameroon and Columbia, to turn down the request.

"I was deeply troubled to learn that the U.S. Government, presumably at your direction, sided with some of the most undemocratic, anti-human rights regimes in the world in voting against consultative status for two international organizations, solely on the grounds that they represent gay and lesbian people," Frank, of Massachusetts, said in a letter to Rice.

You mean like you and your party did when you denounced the invasion of Iraq, Barney?

Since he had a homosexual prostitution ring running out of his apartment, he probably is an expert...

Gays are entitled to the same human rights as everybody else.

This does not entitle them to their own group at the United Nations. Siding with common sense against a move that would hinder future human rights efforts by the United Nations is definitely not comparable to the Democrats siding against freedom in their support of Saddam Hussein's regime.

I was having a conversation with my barber and he said he couldn't stand Barney Frank and he couldn't look at him when he was speaking because there was something wrong with his mouth.

I said,"It didn't get that way from eating bananas."

He had to put the scissors down while he dried his eyes.

Who cares what the Democrats are doing? I couldn't give the slightest ounce of thought to what an effete and gutless party thinks about our involvement in Iraq or gay rights.

However, I do care about allowing all people, regardless of sexuality, equal opportunity for representation. There are already a number of gay and lesbian groups - as well as Christian, Islamic, progressive and conservative groups - on this council, so it defies all reasoning to dismiss without hearing these two specific groups. Let them speak their piece and be torn apart when their weak-willed argument collapse around them.

I'm so sick of this sh*t I could scream. Barney Frank and his fellow sexual perverts need to realize that since there isn't a heterosexual U.N. Economic and Social Council, there shouldn't be one for homos.

These sexual deviants need to realize that no one cares about their friggin sex lives and we're sick of hearing about them!!!

I thought about the same thing. The Democrats have always had a love affair with any communist and despotic regime such as the Soviet Union, Nicaragua, Castro's Cuba, etc.

I was somewhat troubled by this. I have yet to find a reasonable explanation of why we ended up on the same side of the vote on this issue with Iranian National Socialists. Perhaps someone here has an explanation. I sure can't figure one out.

ECOSOC is one of those harmless U.N. talk shops. I would look forward to Condi's explanation of this at her next conference.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

Frank is a well know homosexual, and a particularly gross one at that. His roommate, (so he says) was arrested some years back for running a little boy prostitution ring out of his apartment. Yes Barney too lived there but "he knew noooooothing about it! And he is the Rep from MA.

He has no standing to criticize ANYONE, let alone Condi Rice! She has more class and moral conviction than Frank possessed in his pinky toe!

Oh and he also claims, after seeing the petitions to place a Marriage amendment on the ballot, that homosexual pseudo(my words) is a non issue in MA. Typical Lib, not accountable, and does not leave office when scandal arises.

It's not clear that Condi had anything whatsoever to do with this, and I rather doubt that she did. The notion of an international body that can't find room for mainstream gay organizations in it's powerless "talk shops", but can find room for government like Zimbabwe's to be full voting members is preposterous. Then again, we already knew the UN was preposterous, and I think any group that wants to be a part of any UN activity needs its collective head examined.

I think it the ultimate slap in the face.

However, we (sadly) have to keep in mind that a number of treaties have been signed by the USA which have self interest value to us.

I think the fact this group was rejected has very significant value. Much of the world does not buy the US ivory tower BS of "born" but goes with the chosen behavior scientific approach on homsoexuals.

This guy is in your face with his gay lifestyle. And this a-hole gets ticked when people stand up to him?

What is it with liberal politicians and their need to publicly show their "affection" to their "significant other".

Please, no Gore pics.
