Reporting from Washington Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called on world leaders for the first time Tuesday to stop discrimination against gays and lesbians, announcing that the United States would use diplomacy and $3 million in aid to help expand the rights of gay people around the world.
In a speech to mark Human Rights Day, which is celebrated Saturday, Clinton declared that protecting the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people is "now one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time" and compared it to the battles for women's rights, racial equality and religious freedom.
Speaking at the United Nations' human rights body in Geneva, she noted that obstacles to gender equality in much of the world "rest on deeply held personal, political, cultural and religious beliefs."
"Some seem to believe it is a Western phenomenon, and therefore people outside the West have grounds to reject it," Clinton said. "Well, in reality, gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world."
She challenged other governments to join U.S. efforts against gender discrimination hours after President Obama directed U.S. agencies working overseas to help combat the criminalization of sexual orientation and to enhance efforts to protect gay and lesbian refugees and asylum seekers.
Clinton announced the launch of a Global Equality Fund to assist civil organizations that promote equal rights for gays abroad. She said the U.S. had committed more than $3 million to start the fund.
The initiative builds on the Obama administration's effort to promote the rights of gays and lesbians at home. The Pentagon this year dismantled its ban on gays serving openly in the military, and Obama recently directed the federal government not to defend a law that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

Obeying her masters orders.
Bite me Hillary.
Yeah right! Does anyone see her actually going to her new buddies from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt or the Saudis and pushing this? Yet I am sure Poland will come in for another rebuke for clinging to Catholicism.
Are gays endangered species now?
Talk to God about it Hillary. Last time I looked you ain’t Him girlfriend.
Let the decadence roll. It’s not like God wasn’t already ticked off enough at us.
With all that is going on in the world, THIS is their top priority?
Gee - when will she call of Holder’s [In]Justice Department not to discriminate against white people?
Just think. We pay these sick bastards big bucks to Jet Set around the world spewing this vomit. I don’t think that this is the America that the Founding Fathers envisioned.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
We have a memory of what America was. It’s not that which we remember any more.
This is what America is. And it deserved to be judged.
I would not be surprised if we, in our lifetimes, see America’s great cities burnt with fire.
the white house gave an order today or yesterday saying that all diplomats need to work to stop discrimination against homosexuals.
Then there is the bill about sex with animals in the military and now this, all in one week
These people are frigging nuts, we’re talking about homosexuals, a way where two people get off sexually in a very unnatural way and now this admin works on this .
So they promoted radical islam in North Africa and the middle east, they do work with islam and muslims, they tell us islam is a great religion but they now tell us homosexuals are what? normal!!! and now need protection.
Of all the problems in the world they focus on this utter idiotic crap.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, even with their dead people and voting more than ten times they cannot win next year
Obeying her masters orders.
Spoken like the true dyke she is.
This and Muslim outreach:
Lady Gaga Goes to the White House for Anti-Bullying Campaign
I’m sure that in some countries they may very well be endangered.
I would guess in those very same countries you’ll see women treated like cattle - daughters murdered by parents in the name of “honor” - and other such loveliness.
My guess, however, is that this is not what Hillary is aiming her barbs at.
can you imagine the founding fathers seeing this agenda today.
They were very smart men but they never thought that two men poking each others crap or two women wearing strap ons pretending to be a man would be about laws today.
If they had thought that this utter perverted disgusting agenda was to take place they would have put this right into the constitution, marriage, military etc.
Not even the most ardent loon homosexual could argue that the founding fathers wanted their so called freedom for this perverted nonsense.
Marching is good for cankles.
....THIS is their top priority? “ <<<
Since giving up baths and shampoos, Hillary has a lot of time on her hands. What with all the men around her doing the heavy lifting on the nuts and bolts of foreign policy, she has very little to do but strap herself to the belly of a plane to share cumin laced dinners with Al Quaida types and press for world decadence. It beats the boring work of defending and saving Christians under persecution in these same countries.
Perversion's all this administration has got left.
