LGBT: Court Appointees & Global Efforts

Good morning, Jim. Have you heard about the Obama administration’s world-wide emphasis on LGBT rights? It’s not widely publicized, but a speech he made the end of May included his strategy to get other countries to make open commitments to join the fight to protect LGBT individuals against “hate and homophobia.” His use of those words indicates his total misunderstanding of why reasonable people object to unhealthy, dangerous sexual behaviors that cause the early death of many who choose alternate lifestyles.
In the same speech, he announced his societal focus at the United Nations: “We led a global campaign to ensure ‘sexual orientation’ was included in a UN resolution on extra-judicial execution – the only UN resolution that specifically mentions LGBT people.” Meaning, he wants other countries to follow his lead and promote LGBT lifestyles by decisions that are made outside the court’s jurisdiction.
There’s also a federal anti-bullying web site that has been founded on these false assumptions: (1) homosexuality is equivalent to race and (2) is morally positive; (3) expressing conservative moral beliefs is illegitimate, discriminatory bullying, i.e., differing opinions are not tolerated.
In July, Michael Walker Fitzgerald became Obama’s fourth openly homosexual nominee to a federal court; also in July the Senate confirmed Obama’s first openly homosexual nominee to the federal court and a week earlier, the Senate Judiciary Committee favorably reported his second homosexual nominee, a lesbian. His third homosexual nominee to the federal court is yet to be considered.
The administration seems to have an obsessive determination to mainstream alternate lifestyles, despite the moral standards of the United States. An amazing factor in this situation is the reluctance of judges to uphold the right of parents to decide who gets to teach values to their children. Certainly, values demonstrated by the projects and individuals this administration supports are exact opposites of the values held by a majority of U.S. citizens.
