“Most people probably assumed that America already had an ambassador for homosexuality: it’s called the Obama administration. But now, Secretary John Kerry wants to make it official by creating a permanent position in the State Department devoted entirely to strong-arming other countries into embracing his view of homosexuality. In another major U-turn from the Bush years, the Obama administration is adding a full-time, taxpayer-funded, openly gay diplomat to the payroll whose sole purpose will be forcing the President’s radical social agenda on reluctant countries. Like Hillary Clinton before him, Kerry has turned the State Department into a satellite office of the Human Rights Campaign, where the only goal seems to be exporting homosexual extremism to a world preoccupied by far more important issues.” –  GOP backed Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins

 

Tony says U-turn from the Bush years like it’s a bad thing?

Uganda President Signs Life Inprisonment Anti-Gay Bill, John Kerry Reviews Assistance Programs

Uganda Prez

Ugandan President Idi-Amin Dada II Museveni has signed the bill penalizing homosexuality with life imprisonment into law today, the Ugandan Observer reports:

The president was in combative mood in a speech after the signing and while answering questions from journalists.  He suggested that the law was made necessary by arrogant western groups promoting a behaviour that threatens Ugandans’ “way of life”.

The signing, which was delayed by more than three hours, has been condemned internationally, but was hugely anticipated by many Ugandans.

The president, who first launched Galaxy International School at Lubowa, Entebbe road, signed the law at around 1:50pm East African time.

Before signing, the president identified three categories of gay people – recruiters, exhibitionists and mercenaries.

The president suggested he could not to understand how men could fail to be attracted to Uganda’s beautiful women and, instead, get attracted to fellow men. The president also paraded the mostly Ugandan scientists who concluded that homosexuality wasn’t generic.

Shortly after Museveni signed the bill the Secretary of State John Kerry, issued the following press release by the State Department.

“This is a tragic day for Uganda and for all who care about the cause of human rights. Ultimately, the only answer is repeal of this law. The United States is deeply disappointed in the enactment of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda. For the four years since the bill was introduced, we have been crystal clear that it blatantly violates human rights obligations that Uganda’s Human Rights Commission itself has recognized are enshrined in Uganda’s Constitution. Today’s signing threatens a dangerous slide backward in Uganda’s commitment to protecting the human rights of its people and a serious threat to the LGBT community in Uganda. 

“We are also deeply concerned about the law’s potential to set back public health efforts in Uganda, including those to address HIV/AIDS, which must be conducted in a non-discriminatory manner in order to be effective. As President Obama stated, this legislation is not just morally wrong, it complicates a valued relationship. Now that this law has been enacted, we are beginning an internal review of our relationship with the Government of Uganda to ensure that all dimensions of our engagement, including assistance programs, uphold our anti-discrimination policies and principles and reflect our values.

“From Nigeria to Russia and Uganda, we are working globally to promote and protect the human rights of all persons. The United States will continue to stand against any efforts to marginalize, criminalize, and penalize vulnerable persons in any society.” 

It is time for us to do our due diligence and pressure our government to halt all aid to this hell-hole and do our best to expose Scott Lively, LaBarbera and all the other “Christian” leaders who go abroad to specifically spread this hate.  It is time that these stories reach the mainstream media outlets and escape the gay media bubble.

The document calls on U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to “take action to stop the harassment, abuse and murder of homosexuals around the world” and calls upon the U.S. government to make tough international public statements condemning the persecution of sexual minorities, and to use all available means to pressure upon the Russian government.

Member of the City Council of Los Angeles and Tom LyaBonzh, which deals with the supervision of the participation of the city in the twin city program,  joined the author of the resolution Mitch O’Ferrell  and board member Mike Bonin. at a rainbow rainbow flag-raising ceremony after the resolutions signing to send a message of support and solidarity from the residents of Los Angeles to LGBT individuals who face persecution in Russia.

Los Angeles which is the  sister city of Saint Petersburg, the first Russian regions where the anti-gay laws were passed has not broken ties with the “Sister Cities” program.

Code Pink: Women for Peace Protester Interrupts John Kerry’s Secretary of State Confirmation Hearing

Code Pink John Kerry

Before a packed hearing room on Capitol Hill John Kerry started his confirmation hearing before the Foreign Relations Committee for his nomination to be secretary of state.

In his opening statement, Kerry made reference to his long journey to this moment that began in 1971 in front of the panel then chaired by Senator William Fulbright. But he also stressed the world is far different — and in many ways more complicated.

“Nearly 42 years ago Chairman Fulbright first gave me the opportunity to testify before this committee during a difficult and divided time for our country,” Kerry said. “Today I can’t help but recognize that the world itself then was in many ways simpler, divided as it was along bi-polar, Cold War antagonism. Today’s world is more complicated than anything we have experienced — from the emergence of China, to the Arab Awakening; inextricably linked economic, health, environmental and demographic issues, proliferation, poverty, pandemic disease, refugees, conflict ongoing in Afghanistan, entire populations and faiths struggling with the demands of modernity, and the accelerating pace of technological innovation shifting power from nation-states to individuals”

As he was finishing his statement, a protestor from Code Pink: Women for Peace standing in the back of the room interrupted the hearing, shouting, “The Middle East is not a threat to us! I am tired of my friends in the Middle East dying!

As the protestor was led from the confirmation hearing Kerry, turned in her direction, and addressed her and the commitee.

“I’ll tell you Mr. Chairman, when I first came to Washington to testify it was as a member of group who came to have their voices heard,” he said. “That is what this place is all about.”

Now that is what you call Stateman like conduct.
