Air Force Secretary Touts ‘Gay Pride' Events in Afghanistan Where Homosexuality is Illegal
CNS News ^ | June 25, 2013 | Penny Starr

Posted on 06/25/2013 6:11:48 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Eric Fanning, the acting secretary of the U.S. Air Force and the first openly homosexual to hold the post, touted how “gay pride” events were being celebrated around the globe, including in Afghanistan. Fanning said he wanted to give “a shout-out to all the other DOD Pride events” at the Department of Defense’s LGBT Pride Month event at the Pentagon on Tuesday.

“This is not the DOD pride event,” Fanning said. “They're all over the world, including in Kandahar and Bagram this week in Afghanistan.” The U.S. State Department’s country report on Afghanistan for 2012 says, “The law criminalizes consensual same-sex sexual conduct activity, and there were reports that harassment, violence, and detentions by the police increased significantly during the year. No law exists to address discrimination or harassment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Homosexuality was widely seen as taboo and indecent. Organizations devoted to the protection or exercise of freedom of sexual orientation remained underground.” “We call these ‘pride’ events as a way of demonstrating that we are proud of the progress we've made as a community, but I know for all of us here in the Pentagon and across the department, there is a different meaning, a larger meaning,” said Fanning, who served in the Clinton administration as an associate director of political affairs. “We are proud that we are able to serve as part of the military, in or out of uniform, proud that we are able to contribute to this great mission of protecting our nation,” Fanning said.

If the government posts a video encouraging “Gay pride” in Afghanistan and Islamists riot, will Obama demand accountability from the filmmakers for the riot?

This is the same military that burned bibles so as not to offend the Taliban.

Notice that Christian activities by members of the US military in Islamist countries are suppressed so as not to aggravate the locals. Secular humanist hedonism is a faith too.

All animals are equal. Some are more equal than others.

so we have to tell the tribal peoples of Afghanistan that they need to celebrate diversity???

Why do gays say they want to celebrate diversity, but actually celebrate their own sexual behavior at gay pride events? They aren’t celebrating other sexuality, they are only celebrating their own.

Nothing exists except homosexuality, and we must celebrate it and congratulate and adulate all homosexuals.

Anybody who does anything besides think about homosexuals at all times and thank God for how lucky we are to have them is sick.

I will be silenced by the PC police, but homosexuality is not exactly honored and celebrated in many parts of the world. Yet we want to make this a centerpiece of gaining respect and honor for America around the world, by pushing homosexuality?

To paraphrase Hillary, gay rights are human rights. Much of world disagrees, and may well think that we want to shove it down their throats. Is that really good for America’s image abroad????

I have absolutely no sympathy or use for mohammadism, but if this is the kind of excrement we show to the rest of the world, it's no wonder so many countries hate us. We used to export technology and culture, now they see us exporting sodomy and rap "music".

0bama isn't the cause, but he is a symptom of a country in rapid decline.

You can tell he’s gay from his photo. It’s weird, but you can just see it in the face.

It would be hard to make the case that the people of Afghanistan (or anyplace) are better off with American “culture” than they would be if they drove us out and isolated their country from our influence insofar as they possibly could.

And the sick part is a lot of Americans agree to this just like they love Obamacare and illegals. I guess being fat and spoiled just isn’t challenging enough for some of the low information voters, they need culture breaking down and chaos.

I say conquer the land (too late now) since even the Afghan government acknowledges it does not control all of the territory. If THEY’VE surrendered it to the Taliban, and we are at war with the TALIBAN, then it is ours if we defeat them.

Propping up failing and corrupt nations is like bailing out bankrupt companies because they are too big to fail. Something will fill the void.

After burning our bibles, and making our female soldiers cover their T-shirts, and our government women wear head scarfs, we finally found something so important to us, that we don’t care if we offend the Muslim nations, celebrating it.

if I were klingon, and throughout history people in every country had persecuted Klingons, i might just try to weaken all countries by demanding diversity in color, religion, sexual preferences and debase the culture (for example Hollywood).
i would control the media so people would not have a venue to point out the scheme, and make pointing out the differences among people the worst kind of offense. that would ensure that there would no longer be any homogenous societies.
if that were ever a plan, its working.

ENOUGH! Obama and Co. want to take our military to hell with them.

“Afghanistan Where Homosexuality is Illegal...”

But pedophilia with young boys is accepted practice. ‘Gay Pride’ in Afghanistan is nothing new.

“U.S. Army admits to widespread cultural pedophilia in Afghanistan”

“Women are for children, boys are for pleasure.”

As recently covered by Examiner.com, the U.S. Army has floated a draft of a new training manual to be utilized for troops in the Afghanistan Theater of Operation.

According to the proposed manual, the reason behind many of the allied Afghan troops/police officers attacking and killing American and British personnel is due to ignorance on our part;


“Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member.”

Listed among the “taboo” subjects of conversation include;
•Any criticism of pedophilia.
•Mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct.
•Advocating women’s rights.
•Anything related to Islam...”

What happened to all of those people who scream about American imperialism.. and how we do not have the right to influence other cultures?!?!?!?

So the military is taking their worship of gay sex into countries who don’t like gay sex?

Oh , imperialism is ok to do when it forcing people to celebrate having sex in one’s bottom. Are they not amazing people that they can take their ,tour of sex in their bottoms ,to all of the world and liberate all people who secretly want to have sex in their bottoms?

The nobility, the incredible compassion, the freedom.. to have sex in their bottoms! YAY!!!

Oh- ok. Simply, they are narcastic hedonists who can’t stop admiring their wang doodles. And if they can convince other people to be base sexual creatures and nothing more- they will have more monkeys to hump! YAY! Joing the party and lets all hump each other. Nothing else could possibly matter, but rubbing our sexual organs onto things and into things.

Good Heavens!
They are just animals.

No. unnecessary. In Afghanistan "diversity" is spelled "Bachi Bazi" translation: "playing with boys."

There are moments when even a basically secular person such as myself gives an involuntary shudder of anticipation of the judgment being passed on his nation. ‘You have been weighed in the balance.....’

But you are talking about the organization which did not exist then, it was under the offices of the Army.

Maybe it should be back under control of the Army. But of course they’re probably headed in the same direction.
