Biden: 'I Don't Care What Your Culture Is,' LGBT Rights Are More Important
CNS News ^ | 6/25/2014 | JIM KUHNHENN

Posted on 06/25/2014 3:23:18 AM PDT by markomalley

Seeking to mobilize a global front against anti-gay violence and discrimination, Vice President Joe Biden declared Tuesday that protecting gay rights is a defining mark of a civilized nation and must trump national cultures and social traditions.

Biden told a gathering of U.S. and international gay rights advocates that President Barack Obama has directed that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women around the world

"I don't care what your culture is," Biden told about 100 guests at the Naval Observatory's vice presidential mansion. "Inhumanity is inhumanity is inhumanity. Prejudice is prejudice is prejudice."

With anti-gay laws taking root in nearly 80 countries, Biden and other top White House officials met with religious, human rights and HIV health care advocates in a forum dedicated to promoting gay rights internationally.

Biden, who has emerged as a leading gay rights advocate within the Obama administration ever since he got ahead of Obama in declaring his support for gay marriage, said that across U.S government agencies officials have been instructed to make the promotion of gay rights abroad a priority.

Joe Biden is old enough to be disgusted by these bunghole hunters but it brings in the big gay money and gets the pervs out to the polls

All this Democratic sudden love for gays trannies etc is based on the money these nut jobs send to them

Someone remind the world that it is historically gay, pro gays or closet gay tyrants who are at the source of most violence throughout history.

Homophobia is worse than all of that. In fact, without homophobia, these tyrants probably would not have had to resort to violence.

The American economy is worse than anytime in my 60 years of memory. Arguably it’s worse today than in the 1930’s because then we were on the gold standard and the money you had stayed good. The nation is literally being invaded from the south by people who will do nothing to improve the economy or job picture and this invasion is neither acknowledged or addressed. The world in general closely resembles 1938 from the perspective of authoritarian regimes jockeying for invasions. An army, which may number up to 330 million strong and straight from the ninth century is hand-chopping and beheading its way across the economically important middle east. So, what is it we hear most frequently from this administration? That’s right, gay and lesbian rights. Even if I were wildly in favor of gay, lesbian and trans-gender issues, I think I’d be more concerned about the real problems in the world.

Pure Cloward Piven. Biden is probably to dumb to realize it. Just as we have compassion for the innocence of children, the Klown and his Evil Friend would bury us in the spawn of Central America’s slums, we have this “idea” of humanity and the civility with which folks should be treated and it is used against us and our faces are rubbed in indecency and perversion and then we are told “it is a good thing”.

Wait...I thought liberals despised infringing on the autonomy of other cultures which may be superior to our own. Aren’t they still hating on the early European settlers for wiping out Native American culture? But it’s ok for them to trump indigenous cultures to force this on them.

How very true! In fact, I'd say the invasion is/was being encouraged by the nobama regime. Another Cloward-Piven technique.

Didn’t the Bible say we would see a time when good would be called evil and evil would be called good?..I think we are there. Evil cannot reign until good is overturned and hidden from public view. Witness the Christian persecution taking place all around the world and in this nation, too. But, more than that, witness the corruption and censorship going on in the media, the big society megaphone. Witness the corruption inherent in those “lost” IRS emails. Look at the polls. America gets it, yet, the smugness of that commissioner yesterday in that hearing was the poster for what is going on at the highest levels of our government. They think they have the dictatorship all wrapped up in pretty paper. And, they may be right.

Joe Biden ,has brought a curse upon himself -clearly he has put his trust in man and made flesh his arm,and has been turned from God. There is NOTHING in this world more important that obeying God. And Scripture is quite clear on that. One cannot read Genesis , or Ezekiel(chapter 16) ,or Matthew,(19 -as but one example) Mark (10 recording the same event) The letters of the Apostle Paul.Or the latter letters that declare the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah were given as our example of how God responds to “unrighteousness.” How revealing that our “Vice” President so openly takes pleasure in those who sin against God.

Joe, what violence? I’m not seeing anything in the news about this.

And, they do not have anymore rights than the rest of us. The LGTB’s problem is that they think they DESERVE special treatment; that they DESERVE to be accepted BECAUSE of their sexual preference; that they DESERVE to have kids when two of the same gender are incapable of having kids without the sperm/egg of an different gender. And, like liberals they think we have to accept their views as gospel.

They, including Joe B, need to get over themselves.

(what are we going to do if this nutjob runs to replace the other nutjob ruining this country?)

Homophobia is a very misleading word. People don't fear homosexuals, they're disgusted by them. A more accurate term would be homotaedium.

It's a totally justifiable and natural reaction to the abnormal.

Worse than that, it is a declaration of war. Christians have long know the day would come when we would have to choose which master we will serve. Slow Joe just made it clear that there can be no serving both God and Caesar.

There are countries where people are jailed or even executed for being homosexual. That is a legitimate human rights concern. But if Biden says we should pressure other countries to allow gay marriage, gay adoption, and the rest of the homosexual agenda, he is not really trying to protect the human rights of homosexuals in other countries but is just basking in his own self-righteousness.

People need to be ripping down the curtain that these leftists are holding up -

they are NOT “pro-LGBT”, they are anti-Christian.

The homos & pervs are just a convenient weapon.

As you say, they would certainly not be denouncing Islamic beliefs about homos, nor would they be using the State to punish Muslims who “discriminate” against homos.

Their goals are plainly anti-Christian.

I appreciate Retard Biden's gift to middle America. His dim assumption that there will never be a backlash against this perversion he is advertising is a justification for ANY response.

He really doesn't see that a parent who sends his little boy to the public rest room to be confronted with a crotch high hole in a toilet stall is not going to vote for the guy who demands this kind of social parity.
