Trump to Launch Global "LGBT Decriminalization" Campaign? Really?
What are we to make of this out-of-the-blue announcement supposedly "confirmed by administration officials" that the Trump Administration will now make decriminalizing homosexuality a global priority?
Certainly no one advocates the human rights abuse of execution for a sexual crime. But setting aside severe laws involving capital punishment, there are 72 other countries that still have some level of criminal punishment for sodomy.
Will the U.S. put pressure on all of them, and what will be the result?
Jamaica is one such country already enduring heavy pressure tactics from the U.S. embassy and State Department to legalize homosexual behavior, but most of the country does not want this to happen. I contacted Shirley Richards, attorney-at-law and member of the Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society.
She said this:“This is of great concern to us, Linda. It is sad that the USA or any other country would use its power, might and influence to bully other countries for the purpose of normalizing unnatural and illogical behaviour of homosexuality. This is international bullyism and is to be decried and denounced.”
In many countries there are lower-level punishments for sodomy which are seldom enforced and now serve mainly as a deterrent to advances by the worldwide aggressive "LGBT" activist community to legitimize the behavior in all sectors of society, including schools.
A terrific column about this was written by Scott Lively. See below.
President Trump, Please Stop the Grenell Campaign
Dr. Scott Lively
President Trump has put his conservative base in a terrible situation by allowing openly homosexual US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to lead a campaign to “legalize homosexuality” around the world. This gut-punch of a news story is being spun as a response to Iran’s recent execution of a homosexual man. While I believe I speak for most conservatives in saying I do not condone that execution, or capital punishment for any sexual crimes anywhere, I believe the Iran incident is simply a pretext for perpetuating the “All-In” Obama doctrine on LGBT issues by the US State Department, and I think President Trump has been persuaded to cooperate on the false argument that doing so will mitigate leftist hatred of his administration here at home.
It's a State Department pretext for perpetuating the Obama "LGBT" agenda
I have some bad news for President Trump: LGBTs and their surrogates in media, academia and government are IMPLACABLE. He will get no credit from the left, but will instead empower a small army of Trojan Horse “conservatives” among his base who are really progressive change-agents in disguise.
Reasonable tolerance and sympathy for people who suffer from same sex attraction disorder is warranted – as is protecting them from violence – but sanitizing homosexuality and transgenderism as if they were morally, psychologically and behaviorally equivalent to sexual and gender normalcy is PC-driven lunacy.
