Sen. Markey Wants to Establish Special LGBT Envoy at State Department
CNS News ^ | 6-23-14 | Tatiana Lozano

Posted on 06/24/2014 1:07:43 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

A bill introduced June 12 by Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), would establish a special envoy at the State Department to coordinate America’s “global response” on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues and allow LGBT individuals “who have a well-founded fear of persecution...to seek protection in the United States.”

The International Human Rights Defense Act of 2014 would reinforce the Obama administration’s already established foreign policy position on LGBT rights, including the public funding of overseas LGBT groups.

In addition, the bill would require annual congressional briefings on “the status of the human rights of LGBT people internationally” and institute a “central repository of data on all United States programs, projects, and activities that relate to prevention and response to discrimination and violence against LGBT people.”

“Eighty-two countries prohibit the public support of the LGBT community, promote homophobia across society, or criminalize homosexuality. That is equal to more than 40 percent of the United Nations Member States,” the bill says.

“We’re not going to sit around and permit what we have fought for so hard to be undone,” Secretary of State John Kerry said. “And as I said earlier, LGBT rights are human rights and human rights are LGBT rights, so we will protect them, period.”

Hey, they can now “gay marry” in a third of the US (and civil-union in more) so why not, it’s a pot of jam for any such weirdo.

In 1820 Massachusetts had gone so far to the left that Maine seceded, now not even two hundred years later, the US has gone so far to the left that Maine once again will secede on June 12, 2018 the secession vote will be held.

What a great idea!

The dead Ambassador from the Benghazi Brouhaha was gayer than Christmas in Grenada, and was writing want-ads seeking security personnel who were "involved in stable gay relationships." Kid you not.

Obviously, the DOS needs to professionalize its gay outreach thingie before more half-baked fruitcakes have their nuts pulled out.

We also should release films. Perhaps remastering old John Wayne westerns, "Queers Ho!"

Serious as a judge... that’s a simile that modern Obama judicial appointments have turned into an irony.

“Gays” have no incentive to stop until they’ve queered the whole country from sea to shining sea, and even then they will requeer and requeer it.

The road between here and there may not look like we think.

Some people want to think of homo as hopeless. But that is not true. They are canaries in a spiritual mine. The worse the atmosphere gets, the more of them we see.

= = = = = = = = = = = =
Rosa de Lauro, Jerod Nadler are a couple more from the “NE Corridor” that fit into the Whack job category.

Of course if a news outlet would HONESTLY evaluate ALL Pols based on what they said and their main actions the Public may ‘wake up’ and oust them all.

It would only be ‘fair’ to mention the R’s also.

See where ‘boner’ is crying that the WH has not done enough in regards to the IRS scandal.

Believe that is Congress’ job isn’t it AND how long before Gowdy gets invited on a late night drive?

I don’t expect the IRS Director or VA Director to ‘grovel at our feet (until AFTER the investigation) but that clown that is running IRS now is a clone of BO.

Maybe, just maybe, Boner will sense the ‘blood on the water’ and pick up the cry from the hinterlands, ‘we’ have been silenced long enough and FINALLY ‘we’ are being heard.

If that SOB had been doing his job instead of worrying about ‘Tee Time’ with BO, we may not be in this mess.

The ‘Ds’ are coming across faster than the GOPe in regards to BO......

This has been covered extensively on FR. While I can't cite the exact references off the top of my head, 1 was a U.S. study done ~1993 and the other was conducted in the U.K. ~ 2012. They both found similar results, i.e., ~3% of the total population identified as homosexual. Interestingly the % for lesbians was about half that of male homosexuals.

“You know, I haven’t heard of any overt Muslim complaints about this. For all the evil things they accuse the “Great Satan” of, whether true, partly true, or false, this seems to be ABSENT. Why?”

First of all, where did all the LBGTs come from? There seem to suddenly be as many of them as Straights. Here’s my thinking on this:

Men want sex more than women, so they marry other men. Women do NOT fall asleep immediately after sex, so they get a bit of hugging, etc. after the act, which is so important to them, so they marry other women.

But this doesn’t account for the extreme numbers we see from the DemocRATS. It’s a muslim plan for dividing the country so they can take it over. We haven’t had as much so-called information crammed down our throats since the last few years. Does this say anything about who or what has produced the figures on the amount of LGBTs?

I just realized homosexuals will be coming to the USA to “escape” discrimination. Lord, the USA is going to lose all G-d’s grace. Maybe it’s time to move!
40% of countries have laws against homosexuality? I know OHB is going to push for the overturn of those laws. It’s going to be abysmal in the USA shortly.

Geez Louise ... can't you even keep up with the thread - LGBT? You were the 1 proudly beating your chest that ME separated from MA because MA went too far "left" back in the 19th century. You could have at least provided more info on the ME secession movement back then and currently - that was part of my intent of questioning you. And since the thread was about LGBT in MA/USA, I was hoping you would provide an insider's insight into the ME gubernatorial race and Michaud's chances. You still have time to respond in a civil manner, should you choose to tread the higher path.

Psst, fool, without the likes of the RINOs and the Democrats, how would wee ever get the support necessary to secede? You see fool, politicians who have about the brain power of fools like you, are nothing but tools used for secession.

Imagine how much harder it would be to secede if all our politicians were actually real Republicans who followed the Republican platform, but, thank God, we have been blessed with politicians who have about the same IQ as you and as a result we have tons of ammunition to use for secession, no=w go climb back in your hole and leave me alone you socialist scum.

My God how I despise idiots and communist, but especially Fabian society scum.
