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."

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.

‘d like to find out something that Biden truly, truly believes in or loves - and take it from him by the force of law.

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.

(hehe, that would be a way to get rid of him forever)

He can call himself the Easter Bunny, but that doesn't make it so.

“Joe Biden says protecting women’s rights trumps culture, social traditions, and religion. Plans to take message to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other muslim nations on worldwide tour as US plans aid cuts.”

:::::::::

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.
