Pride! Our Government Finally Promises Some Foreign Aid To Promote Gay Rights

This is such a momentous step in the right direction.

Better late than never!

The gay community should feel some pride for the Obama administration as the President issued a memorandum today announcing that the U.S. will use a wide-range of efforts to promote rights for gay and lesbians around the world. President Obama has direct his U.S. agencies abroad to being using tactics to compact attempts by foreign governments to criminalize homosexuality and to give much needed assistance to gay refugees seeking asylum from their governments.

In a statement about his new initiative, Obama said:

"The struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons is a global challenge, and one that is central to the United States' commitment to promoting human rights."

Amen!

Leading the charge for this new policy is U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who spoke in Geneva today to a group of follow diplomats about changing cultural practices or religious tradition that cause endangerment to the gay community. In her speech, Clinton spoke strongly of the defense of gay rights and likened the plight to women's rights and racial equality, categorizing them all as universal human rights. While she chose not to call out any particular country for their injustice, she firmly criticized nations that criminalize gay behavior or tolerate abuse of gay, bisexual or transgendered people.

And now we're finally getting somewhere! We're sincerely thrilled to see our government taking this kind of initiative to help those who have no means to help themselves. We've said it before and we'll keep saying it until it is true:

EQUALITY FOR ALL!!! THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT! THANK YOU MADAME SECRETARY! LET'S GET THIS DONE!!!

    The typos and poor proofreading make the first half of this post virtually incomprehensible.



  2. 2

    Who cares really in this day & age no offense to the gays but don't we have bigger fish to fry than equal rights like seriously.



  3. 3

    He's just trying to win over the gay vote for the next election. utter BS. obama is a phony.

    Hey, Mario, all this prick needs to do to really help your cause is change his stance on gay marriage. Imagine if tomorrow, Barry holds one of his infamous press conferences and announces that he's changed his ways and now supports gay marriage. Plus, the dumb whore you're thanking is the same son of a bitch who came up with the idea of "Dont Ask, Dont Tell." It's kinda funny. That'd be like telling Muslim soldiers to shut the fuck up about their love for Allah and pretend they were Christians. Mario, you are nothing more than a Jew who supported Hitler in 1942.

    What a waste of fucking money. Who really gives a shit right now? People aren't able to feed their families and all you care about is this bullshit? Fuck me running.

    Isn't charity supposed to begin at home? Gay marriage isn't even legal in all of the U.S, why not fix that first instead of pointing fingers at foreign govt's. Oh right, because this way they can seem like they are actually making change without changing anything while dumb ass media laps it up.



  7. 7

    U.S -Saudi ties are strong and the issue of gays being executed or flogged over there doesn't seem to be an issue for obama.



  8. 8

    Nothing will change, we'll still give money to the Middle East and Africa and all the idiots like Perez will get off on thinking it actually means something.

    This is just a distraction. Congress passed a bill last week that will give the military and Homeland security the authority to come into our homes and arrest us for anything they deem "anti-government" i.e. protesting. While under this arrest citizens will not be provided due process. WHICH IS OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT! Obama said he will veto it but I doubt he will. Meanwhile he has seduced you into thinking he is great and taken attention away from the ever approaching police state.

    Will the 'promoting human rights' train be speaking out for little old ladies at airports next?

    For sure we can!

    Re: NickDG – If you Americans want to save some money, try cutting down your military and the many wars you've been waging around the world. How many innocent women and children have you killed this week? Oh, and while you're at it, make the rich pay their fair share. Cut loopholes where the rich pay less than a poor person. There's a start.

    Excellent!
    Bravo President Obama!

    Re: tallguy10 – Actually you still can comprehend what he is saying despite the proofreading errors. You're simply just saying shit to say it. Anyone with a brain can read and understand what was written up there. Before proofreading even became a norm, people were quite capable of understanding things. This article is no different.

    The reelection is coming up. Obama only gives a crap about gay rights because he needs to ring in some voters.
