Trump to Launch Worldwide Fight to Decriminalize Homosexuality
Breitbart ^ | Feb 19, 2019 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 02/19/2019 2:39:08 PM PST by Sheapdog

The Trump administration will launch an effort to decriminalize homosexuality in countries where it is still illegal, as part of a diplomatic push for LGBTQ rights — and an effort to isolate Iran, which persecutes homosexuals. NBC News reported Tuesday that the effort is to be led by U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, a staunch Trump supporter who is among the highest-ranking openly gay officials ever to serve in the U.S. government. Grenell is currently among the front-runners to succeed Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador.

U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, is leading the effort, which kicks off Tuesday evening in Berlin. The U.S. embassy is flying in LGBT activists from across Europe for a strategy dinner to plan to push for decriminalization in places that still outlaw homosexuality — mostly concentrated in the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean.

Although the decriminalization strategy is still being hashed out, officials say it’s likely to include working with global organizations like the United Nations, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, as well as other countries whose laws already allow for gay rights. Other U.S. embassies and diplomatic posts throughout Europe, including the U.S. Mission to the E.U., are involved, as is the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.

So who will the leftists side with? President Trump, or the Muslim countries that execute homosexuals?

Being that the United States Solicitor General who served under Bush led the charge to legalize “homosexual marriage”, that “evolutionary” trait is already “thriving” in the Republican’s Big Perverted “Wide is the Road to Destruction” Tent , so your point outdated already.

It’s well beyond 3D, probably 128D at this point. Some internal polling must have shown there’s a bunch of libertarian minded homos who might turn out for Trump, or at least stay home and not vote for the opponent.

I think it’s a great move. Muslim countries never get tired of telling us we should never say a bad word about Islam or Muslims. Given that their interference in our domestic affairs will never end this side of the 72 virgins, I think it’s fair that we point out to them that it’s inhumane to imprison or execute gays.

Up to 2003 we had laws that criminalized homosexual behavior. SCOTUS struck down the last laws against it.

IIRC, one could be jailed for homosexuality.

We used to ban homosexuals from the military and highly classified jobs.

At one time homosexuality was considered a mental illness.

Now that all of those prohibitions have been removed we are daily bombarded with homosexuality and now transgenderism. Pedophilia is next.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.” (I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11).

It’s also exposing a longtime paradox in the Democrat Party - embracing Islam while touting gay rights.

Trump is methodically tearing the Democrats apart as he prepares for a second term.

Now the president is bringing up this disgusting topic to his administration? We see FR perverts post this crap here every day and soon this place will be a dating site for gays and lesbian cross-dressing baboons.

Ivanka and Jarrad influence? Where is his conservatism? It makes me wonder what the administration would do if the supreme court agreed to hear another homosexual marriage case.

Don't be so stupid, both the Muslims and other degenerates will vote primarily for Dems if the the current major two Party system remains in tact.

4-D chess is not being played here and if it is will fail miserably.

The United States' ethnocentric society is fractured by default. An already heterogeneous society that has a binding Constitution based on a Social Contract that favors individuality can be it's own worst enemy when social mores fall apart, which has happened for over 50 years. Also, the EU is basically telling Muslims to cool it with their anti-homosexual dogma. That should answer your question too. They are using the same subversive tactics used on other patriarchal systems as well as using the same tactics when Christians resisted their hegemony. Also, money talks, B.S. walks.

Ugh.

This won't isolate Iran. Liberals don't care what Iran does to homosexuals, what China does to moslems, what Black Fundamentalists think of non-chrstians, or what an insane coalition contains both scientific materialists and witches.

The liberals will still support Iran and homosexuals in the "west" (and Communists in China).

When conflicts between gays and Muslims inevitably arise, I will side with the gays all the way. At least they don’t kill those with whom they disagree.

Whoa, not so fast. He never said he was for homosexual marriage did he? Homosexuals are sinners just as we are, and deserve the chance to accept Jesus. Now, practicing homos is a different matter, just as supporting pedos, alcoholics, adulterers, etc., are sins.

Sorry to hear that. It will always be illegal with God. He’ll have the last word. In fact, He already has; in His Word....which like Him, is Immutible. Trump should know better.

"... when the Muslim community and the homosexual community collide"

Collide? Or collude?

Years ago a humor thread invited Freepers to speculate on movie names that we might see, once Hollywood got around to combining together pro-gay & pro-jihadi themes.

A few I still remember: "Swish Boom" ... "Ali Baba & the Forty Hairdressers" ... "When Mustafa met Mohammed" ... "1001 Tails of the Arabian Knights" ...

I don’t think any mental illness should be a crime. However, I won’t pretend that homosexuality is normal.
