WASHINGTON, D.C. December 9, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) As part of a worldwide campaign to promote global acceptance of homosexuality, the Obama administration has established a $3 million Global Equality Fund to fund homosexual political advocacy around the world at taxpayer expense. State Department guidelines suggest this could include everything from funding foreign political activists to campaign against legislation that defines marriage as a union between one man and one women, to hosting gay pride parades and concerts by Lady Gaga in far-flung countries.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton trumpeted the formation of the group in a speech she delivered in Geneva on Tuesday. I am also pleased to announce that we are launching a new Global Equality Fund that will support the work of civil society organizations working on these issues around the world, Clinton said.
This fund will help them record facts so they can target their advocacy, learn how to use the law as a tool, manage their budgets, train their staffs, and forge partnerships with womens organizations and other human rights groups, Clinton said.
She noted the administration had committed more than $3 million of taxpayer funds to start this organization. The State Departments website describes the fund as a public-private partnership that will seek partnership commitments from donor governments, corporations, and foundations.
A State Department fact sheet reveals that its Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) will support programming through the Global Equality Fund. This will include boosting NGO capacity to advocate before host governments and in multilateral forums on behalf of LGBT causes. The DRL asks homosexual groups to assist them in documenting cases of discrimination.
The fund will also pay for international programs that enhance public awareness and further positive dialogue about homosexuality, such as inclusive civic education and cultural activities, and build diverse human rights coalitions around public messaging.
The fact sheet suggests these could include such events as gay pride parades and concerts by Lady Gaga the controversial pop singer who raised the ire of Christians earlier this year when she released a video for her song Judas that depicted her at one point dressed as Mary Magdalene, sensuously nibbling Jesus Christs ear.
The State Department boasts it helped convince pop artist and LGBT advocate Lady Gaga to perform at EuroPride Rome in June 2011.
Obamas closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, wrote on Tuesday that she was deeply moved by the pop singers activism.
The Global Equality Fund is only one small part of an ambitious agenda to recast all U.S. foreign policy to support the LGBT cause around the world. On Tuesday, Barack Obama issued a presidential memorandum instructing foreign embassies to expand efforts to combat discrimination, homophobia, and intolerance on the basis of LGBT status or conduct in their host countries.
I pretty much don’t care what two people do as long as their both conscenting but I flatly refuse to allow MY GOVERNMENT promote “fudge packing”.
Jack stuck his penis into Gene’s anal canal. Rosie stuck a vibrator up Joy’s armpit. Where’s my government money?
It appears that the Administration has $3M more in it’s budget than it needs... oops there is no budget just a Continuing Resolution going all the way back to FY 2010, the year when the Democrat Congress padded everything. What a coincidence!
We need a Republican Congress led by Tea Party adherents to stop this crap. Stop it Now!
I'm sure they will be taking heed his "instructions", considering most of those countries have harsh penalties for their behaviour. Some will even chop your hand off.
The Sharia screamers ought to love this.
This must be one of the Enumerated Powers of the Federal Government mentioned in the Constitution.
The Sodomites and carpet-munchers love to tell us how ‘’natural’’ their ‘’lifestyle’’ is and yet they struggle and rail with great wailing and gnashing of teeth to tell us it’s natural and we’re all ‘’homophobic’’. I wonder if they ever thought that if indeed their perversion were ‘’natural’’, they would have to fight so hard for the world to accept it?
LGBT no sale issue.
“The Sharia screamers ought to love this.”
The ones with a triple digit IQ will, because it makes US look even more the laughingstock.
What’s next from these fools? A $200 Billion foreign aid super fund to put in rubber sidewalks all over the world in case someone with a trick knee falls down?
No wonder our taxes are so high - between “improvements” to the Arab world and a variety of policies in Africa, as well as this nonsense, we’re paying to transform the very nature of human life over the entire surface of the planet.
Not quite sure where in the US Constitution the executive branch is empowered to do that; must be one of those “penumbras” we hear so much about.
When will she perform in Mecca?
Hell in a hand basket ...
Tab A slips into slot B so any other combination is just wrong !!!!!!!!!!!
We’re doomed if we don’t get that b@st@ard out of the WH. God will not be mocked.
I agree. I made a typo on my post. I meant to say ‘’they wouldn’t have to fight so hard’’. Homosexually is NOT normal!
“She noted the administration had committed more than $3 million of taxpayer funds to start this organization.”
All I can do is shake my head. 2012 election can’t come soon enough. I’m sure my 90 year old mother on medicare, a Nanny State Democrat, will understand as her medicare payments go up.
