Joe Biden Says Protecting Gay Rights Trumps Culture, Social Traditions
Christian Post ^ | 06/25/2014 | Stoyan Zaimov

Vice President Joe Biden said during a speech on Tuesday that protecting gay rights trumps national cultures and social traditions, as President Barack Obama's administration continues promoting LGBT rights around the world.

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

He added that the cause is a "defining mark of a civilized nation" and met with a number of religious, human rights and HIV health care advocates in a forum dedicated to promoting gay rights internationally.

White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice added that protecting gay people from global discrimination, abuse and even death is one of the most challenging international issues facing the U.S.

"To achieve lasting global change, we need everyone's shoulder at the wheel," Rice said. "With more voices to enrich and amplify the message — the message that gay rights are straight-up human rights — we can open more minds."

She continued: "Governments are responsible for protecting the rights of all citizens, and it is incumbent upon the state, and on each of us, to foster tolerance and to reverse the tide of discrimination."

The White House administration has butted heads with other governments when it comes to gay rights,

Conservatives have no rights, however.

Non-slavers have not rights.

And, those who expect ‘Equal under the Law’,
of course, have no rights.

This is more about campaign donations, and appealing to the anti-christian leftist base.

It would be one thing if we were talking about gay “rights” as opposed to “Gay Rights”; in other words, the ability to enjoy the same Constitutional rights and privileges granted to any and all citizens, versus special prerogatives handing down to homosexuals as a favored class.

This is where the Democrats’ overreach and PC Extremism ruins any good they might do on a subject like this. I think it would be great for the US to condemn nations like Iran that execute, beat or jail people for being gay. But that’s not what Biden means. He’s talking about pushing the full boat of PC rights for homosexuals on nations. There is no way in Hell that is happening and it just makes us look bad.

Well, Joey, you hustle your butt over to Iran and demonstrate to the mullahs over there that being a queer is normal and they should change their laws.

Yes, but if gays, in general, did not vote for the left, none of this would be happening. And the votes are the bottom line for the power-mad left.

Absolutely. Biden has no principles. He worships himself and is ruthless in his attempt to climb to the top. Biden will say or do anything to achieve his goals.

It will not be long before pastors will be charged with a crime for preaching from the Bible.

Biden needs to study homosexuality as a Catholic.

Catechism of the Catholic Church

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

Possibly. But I think it's part of the Alinskyite "march through the institutions". Like Joe says, "... Gay Rights Trumps Culture, Social Traditions"

The sodomite Globalist culture and social traditions, and they do have their own culture and traditions, trumps our national culture and social traditions.

Does it not strike anyone as odd that this administration has made dozens of executive orders, DOJ actions, state department initiatives, etc., in an effort not only to provide gay rights in this country, but to force gay rights on other countries?

When we have the problems on the Mexican border, the IRS, the disaster in the MidEast, The VA melt down.....so much effort is going into promoting gay rights?

Either someone’s priorities are mixed up.........or that someone has a personal interest.

it all depends on what is deservedly called a “right”

when what is being portrayed as a “right” is not do defined in the U.S. Constitution as an inherent LEGAL right - a right the law is concerned about - and the same is true in most of the U.S. states and their Constitutions, in spite of judge’s claims to have miraculously find a “right” hiding in the federal and state Constitutions all along

when in fact, “we the people” have not generally acted to place such a “right” in existence but are being told by judicial dictators that by their “living constitution” they will usurp their limited power, command the powers reserved to we the people and declare to exist that which does not exist

They are contrary to the natural law.

Natural law as prescribed by the Bible? How do people in India, China and Syria come to know "natural law" so that they can try not to violate it?
