Skip to comments.Biden: 'I Don't Care What Your Culture Is,' LGBT Rights Are More Important
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.

Dear Joe, please go to the Islamic countries and make that demand......
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
And more police state excuses.
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.
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.
The enemy is out in the open. Not that I’m for gay discrimination, but elevating it above all else is ridiculous and self serving.
These guys must go back and get the best lewinski EVAH after saying jit like that.
Wait a minute, I thought multiculturalism was our strength?
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”.
Alexander the Great was no homophobe... Nor were his completely corrupt sons who forced others at the edge of the sword to worship naked statues.
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.
Should they send in the marines? I mean, beheading videos, murdering ambassadors, terrorism, female circumcision, honor killings and all that are one thing. But they don’t even have any gay bars!
My thoughts exactly. He would not dare. He wouldn’t even do that here in this country in front of a bunch of Muslims.
Stupidity is stupidity is stupidity.
How very true! In fact, I'd say the invasion is/was being encouraged by the nobama regime. Another Cloward-Piven technique.
the Pope? the imamm from iran? any ordinary mooselimb?

I wholeheartedly join you in this view. Thanks!

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.
I would give odds that at some point in his life, this piece of garbage has gotten drunk and taken it up the pooper....
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?)
They also whine and cry a lot about how we shouldn't 'legislate morality', but that's exactly what this whole social justice boondoggle IS!
Biden. Standing up for freaks while his country burn to ashes.
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.
We are literally living in Sodom and Gommorha. We need angels. Desperately.
Talk about imperialism....
Archangels...with flaming swords.
I'm both sodorevulsic and hepatiphobic.
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.
The battle lines are drawn.
It’s becoming clear what the Crusades were all about.
I hope Lunch pail Joe runs against Hillary. Let them have a hell of a primary.
What is homosexual discrimination?
I don’t know, I’ll need to ask one someday.
Go soak your head!
Support for the Homosexual agenda and gay marriage is the Mark of the Beast.
What lofty achievements our country can now show the world!
The right to engage in Homo sex is exactly like putting a man on the moon.
How we have fallen.
And playing in feces, is playing in feces...
Wonder if we can get him to give that speech at an outdoor gathering in the Sudan?
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.
Once again Biden demonstrates his unabashed idiocy. In the rat turd that passes for Biden’s brain, culture is eating a taco in a bathhouse full of politicians and queers.
For FR perhaps, but honestly, with the influx of new freepers I've seen over the years, I think sarcasm tags should be mandatory.
But I am glad we seem to be in agreement. :-)
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.
Aren't the Dems always the ones absolutely screeching about government shouldn't try to 'legislate morality'?
Why does it sound as tho Biden is outing himself???
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.
