National Security Advisor Susan Rice said on June 24 that Americas support for LGBT rights is not just a national cause but its also a global enterprise.
President Obama has specifically directed that American diplomacy and American assistance promote and protect the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women, all around the world, she said in an address to the first White House Forum on Global LGBT Human Rights.
Universal human rights are not bestowed by governments or powerful majorities, they are Gods gift and the birth right of all people, she added. They belong to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women as surely as they belong to anyone in the human family. As President Obama has said so eloquently, If we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.
So protecting our LGBT brothers and sisters is among the most challenging human rights issues we face. Prejudice has deep roots, and the laws limiting gay rights frequently enjoy strong popular support For the faith community, how can we reinforce to religious groups that God loves all the children of his creation equally? For the human rights community, how can we help activists work together to advance social justice for everyone? Because, if you care about equal rights for women or ethnic or religious minorities, you should care about LGBT human rights too. Its all the same.

Rom 1: Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened.  For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.  And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things.  Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves.  Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.  And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.
The advances in the homosexual culture is a product of society's rejection of God.
May God bring His Justice quickly.
Our country has become a laughingstock to all other countries, and a danger to most.
I’m confused - this doesn’t seem to be consistent with 0bama’s “lead from behind” strategy? Or is it?
Straight from the mouth of the Secretary of Lying to the American people.
Good to know that the agency responsible for the domestic security of the United States has its priorities correctly ordered.
I think the Founding Fathers wanted an American to be president. They would roll over in their graves knowing we have a queer muslim in the White House.
This type of sh*t is going to get us attacked.
China, India, and Russia are going to economically squeeze us while the ISIS Caliphate will physically hit us.
Like who the hell is going to want to stand with a country whose government think that the biggest issue is promoting people’s sexual kinks?
Perversion is not a ‘human right’.
Well, you know, if you think about it: <<redacted>>

Maybe if the Marine in that Mexican jail did a ‘full-Klinger’ he’d be sprung by now.
These people need to stop riding free on the dam octant party and start their own...the LGBT party, and see how many votes they get.
This is the only thing our government seems to care about now. They can’t stand up for the rights of Christians (even in two-bit countries like the Sudan), of course, even though the majority of our country is at least marginally Christian.
Only a very tiny percentage of the US falls into any of these “LGBT” categories. My question is how this tiny group has gotten to be so powerful, and what Obama thinks he’s going to get out of this.
I suppose a big part of it is just to crush the practicing Christians and Jews in this country, that is, to crush the private moral sphere and make everyone adopt the morality of the state. This “LGBT” stuff enables him to really intrude on the personal, religious and private spheres by legally forcing people to participate in or at least give verbal approval to things that they think are wrong.
When did sodomy become a national security issue?
Dear ms. Rice,
When the rights you espouse to uphold, are NOT those already defined within the U.S. Constitution,
YOU have become a Communist!
ISIS and the other caliphate jihadis attack America as the "Great Satan" who is polluting the world with evil. Not impossible to see how they got that idea, since we are the main porn-exporters, abortion-promoters, and perversion sponsors in the world.
God may be using the Muslims as His scourge on our backs.
On a sidenote, where's a good place to move to? Philippines? I've heard Costa Rica's nice.
/sarc/ --- because we'd never have enough $$ to move out of this country, the country that painted its own big bullseye ("Ready for Judgment!") on its back.
Support for LGBT rights is the Mark of the Beast.
