Black Like Moi reports:

President Barack Obama refuses to fully support gay marriage, instead opting to back a civil union that offers the same benefits as marriage. He has said that individual states should decide the “gay marriage issue” and reassures the LGBTQ community that his personal opinion on gay marriage, which was a bit conservative to say the least, is “still evolving.”

But that doesn’t stop him from issuing the world a stern warning that the United States does not tolerate gay and lesbian discrimination, and that “foreign assistance and  diplomacy” would be used to ensure that gay rights are equal to other basic human rights.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was by his side in Geneva as they addressed diplomats from Arab, African and other nations where homosexuality is criminalized — and she pulled no punches.

“Gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights,” she said. “It should never be a crime to be gay.”

Not surprisingly, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), wasn’t too thrilled that the Obama Administration were so vocal in their support of human dignity saying that, “Promoting special rights for gays in foreign countries is not in America’s interests and not worth a dime of taxpayers’ money,” a Perry campaign statement said.

  1. All this is saying is that the US is the new babylon & if the rest of the world allies with such behavior we’ll begin to witness a Babylonian world. This matter is a serious moral issue & when so-called world leaders embrace this kind of unorthodox human behavior, as a priority, it reveals why it is what it is. AA’s need to carefully examine the “top priorities” of the left, then maybe it will crystallize in our minds that our only way out of this confused civilization & policies thereof is to lead our own as opposed to following a system that appears to hold high standards in the practice of unethical/immoral/blasphemous behavior over better schools, jobs & housing. I’m appalled that this administration would take such an argument overseas when there’s a vest amount of more important matters that should be focused on here in the US. I totally agree with R. Perry on this subject matter, to the fullest.
