As June approaches, get ready for the official celebration of Gay Pride Month by US embassies abroad.
If sodomy and same-sex marriage are constitutional rights, what is their relationship to American foreign policy? Despite the tremendous controversy regarding these issues within the United States, the Obama administration has gone ahead and placed them at the center of US diplomacy. Why? In Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones wrote that the rationalization of sexual misbehavior could only calm the troubled conscience in an effective manner when it was legitimized by the regime in power [which] went on in the name of high moral purpose to make this vision normative for the entire world.
Therefore, the Obama administration, after promoting homosexual rights and marriage in the US, has undertaken the task of universalizing the rationalization for sodomitical behavior and is doing so with high moral rhetoric in this case, by appropriating the language of human rights.
The effort began in earnest on International Human Rights Day, December 6, 2011, with a powerful pair of events. President Obama issued a memorandum for the heads of executive departments and agencies, directing them to ensure that US diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of LGBT persons. Mr Obama said that, The struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons is a global challenge, and one that is central to the United States commitment to promoting human rights.
The departments and agencies included the Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Export Import Bank, the United States Trade Representative, and such other agencies as the President may designate.(continued)

He’s immoral, and unpresidential to say the least.
The term for this type of pushy cultural ignorance is “Ugly American’...
His muslimness is just pushing them to out themselves so they are dispatched. The same will happen here if he gets his way.
This from the president who felt compelled to apologize for American ‘arrogance’.
Great article. Thanks for sharing. An interesting thought, if Rand Paul were president,this would not doubt end very quickly based on the ‘cultural imperialism’ aspect alone. That is exactly what it is, interfering in affairs with absolutely no benefit to the United States.
Great article. Thanks.
The “WHY DO THEY HATE US???” crowd always seems to ignore how we push social norms that are offensive to 90% of the world’s population.
And if you make this point to a liberal—that our advocacy of gay rights is deeply offensive to 90% of the world’s population—they will immediately reply that “backward” and “ignorant” people will just have to get over it.
Which is exactly how imperialists have always talked about their “backward” and “ignorant” colonial subjects. Which is the point of the article. If you support universal gay rights, you are an imperialist, no ifs ands or buts.
