'American decadence' invades Baghdad
One News Now ^ | 5/30/2009 | Jim Brown

Posted on 05/30/2009 6:45:23 AM PDT by GonzoII

A U.S. Embassy in a Muslim country has sponsored an event to celebrate the homosexual lifestyle.

Last night the U.S. Embassy in Iraq held a "Gay Pride Theme Party" at a pub called Baghdaddy's. Embassy employees were encouraged to attend the Baghdad event dressed in drag or as a homosexual icon.

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says homosexual activism at U.S. embassies was prevalent during the Bush administration, but it has gone a step further under the Obama administration.

And that is why the radical Muslims will retake Iraq. The Left just dont understand that your average Muslim hates Gays.

I have a reaction that could / should get me banned if I posted it. So I will simply observe that our diplomatic corps seems “tone deaf” to the sensibilities of the culture about them.

Seems to me it's one thing to tolerate something, and entirely different to (effectively) promote it.

Baghdad has always been a liberal mecca in the Middle East.

Many a police officer said they would rather see prostitutes than Imams on the streets.

One of the main reasons the radical Islamists hate us is the perception that the West has no moral compass.

If this is true, then it is true that the LEFT WEST really have no clue. They are tempting a beheader somewhere.....

I don't know why this should come as a surprise to anyone.

Apparently the best-kept secret in U.S. foreign policy these days is that the so-called "war on terror" has nothing to do with terrorism and is primarily aimed at establishing a Middle Eastern foothold for our version of radical secularism.

Liberals: “Our unilateral cowboy attitude inflames anti-American sentiment!”

MSM: “You’re damned right! Down with America!”

Conservatives: “Our liberal in-your-face decadence with no regard to religious sensibilities inflames anti-American sentiment!”

MSM: “Wha??”

OK, and just what the heck is our State Department doing this for? This is not a role anyone was elected or appointed for.

Time to replace the head of our state department for embarrassing the entire country.

We don’t fight a war and have men and women killed in battle for the weakest of us to do this.

This HAS to be satire. But I followed all the links i found on the story and can’t seem to prove that. Surely the low-life communist in the white house wouldn’t desecrate the memory of our dead by having a sodomy party in Iraq.

If he did, I openly call for his removal from office. The Obamunist has to go NOW.

This is the only way gays who come out of the closet (although homosexual behavior is rampant in Islamic countries) are allowed to hang around in Islamic countries.

Would not surprise me. Islam stands in the way of a secular, hedonistic world championed by the likes of Bush and Obama. People might want to reconsider why the US is so determined to take out Iran.

I can't say I am surprised, but it isn't right. The Embassy is for the business of the US Government and her citizens. This party and the subject are NOT the business of the US Government.

Beyond Belief! The self righteous liberals have forever beat the drums about Americans being “ugly Americans” while visiting other countries and towards other cultures. Where are the mirrors so they can see themselves?
On a further note, this went on during Bush’s Administration? I love Bush on his actions on the WOT, but his refusal to clean house and take total command of government agencies after his first inauguration due to the “new tone” was the beginning of my being POed with him.
Bush should have done exactly what Obama, the Uniter (not) is doing.

The agenda you mention has emerged in my mind several times since the invasion of Iraq. Then I think, “No, Bush has seen the intelligence. He knows there is a connection between Iraq and Oklahoma. He knows about terrorism and Flight 800.”
I am leaning more towards your belief - Islam stands in the way of a One World government.

I'm surprised you are able to walk with the hyperextension from all the knee jerking you do.

Look at the literal and metaphorical desert in which the Islamic world lives. IT WAS CREATED BY THE ISLAMIC WORLD. The then-advanced civilizations throughout that area were taken over by Muslim armies (and later by mercenaries paid for by them), pillaged, slapped with high taxes, and left to rot. The only "radical secularism" that has caused more trouble for the world than Islam has been that of Nazi Germany, the various communist regimes, and Japan's WWII military adventurers.

Hardly. Islam want's to be in firm control of the throne of one world government. That is why the UN is infested with Islamic countries, and so many departments and NGO's, when they shouldn't even be allowed membership.

The ultimate goal is a world califate whose throne is the UN world government.

Why do you think the Un secretary General- Key Moon Bat- stated: "the sooner the western world adopts Islam, the better".

The Army can burn soldiers’ Bibles lest their muslime hosts take offense. But an American embassy can sponsor an event that would offend ANY sane person, in a muslime country, and because it’s homo-oriented, get away with it?

No. They're allowed to have Bibles and even wear crosses around their necks.

I have had a cross on a chain around my neck all the years I've been here.

And I'm still in one piece. :)

Also mentioned by Al Kamen in the Washington Post, without comment or evaluation:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/05/21/AR2009052104048.html

Evidently it’s not an official embassy event, but it’s the supposed right of embassy staff to do whatever they want.

I wonder if that includes distributing Bibles in Saudi Arabia? Somehow, I doubt it. Of course there are rules that embassy staff has to follow in foreign countries. But evidently the ambassador is not interested in enforcing them.
