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 Americas 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 administrations 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.
Were 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.

Five rainbows for that!
what they really want is a cabinet level secretary.
Department of Queers
You think you are kidding!
I bet they would. Department of Queer Affairs.
If we can beat them—and the GOP-e—our work is really going to be cut out for us, reversing eight years of this kind of Barbara Streisand.
There’s a long list.
Mojito, you has hitted the long ball here!
Do they get issued a pink triangle to wear, too?
i am serious as a judge.
wait till they try to replace the star field on the American flag with a rainbow.
not kidding. there is already talk about that.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM/COLLECTIVISM
DEPOPULATE collectivists from the body politic.
DISMANTLE the state department.
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat
Markey’s a wack job. The good news is - anything he comes up with will never be taken seriously.
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.
God will have the final word. case closed.
ME has a U.S. Sen. who is (I) and causcuses with the Demonrats. Its 2014 Demonrat gubernatorial candidate is a 58 year old open homosexual. How is the U.S. to the left of ME?
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......
Wait a moment... Putin is correct...
what % of queers do we have here in this country? 1%? 5%???
OMG It just goes on and on. How much more damage can be done before (1) we completely fall apart or (2) 0bama and his minions are no longer running everything?
What a bunch of freaks. Am I referring to the LBG-whatever group? NO! I refer to the idiot Democrats who are now making it a foreign policy to appoint members of this weird community to ambassadorships in foreign countries.
