(CNSNews.com) At an event celebrating Gay Pride Month on Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton encouraged State Department employees to let teenagers know homosexuality is okay.
Weve come such a far distance in our own country, but there are still so many who need the outreach, need the mentoring, need the support to stand up and be who they are and then think about people in so many countries where it just seems impossible, Clinton said.
So I think that each and everyone of you, not only professionally, particularly from State and USAID and every bureau and every embassy and every part of our government have to do what you can to create that safe space, but also personally, to really look for those who might need a helping hand; particularly young people; particularly teenagers who still today have such a difficult time, she added.
And who, still in numbers far beyond what should ever happen, take their own life rather than live that life, Clinton said at the event, billed as a human rights and U.S. foreign policy speech.
So I would ask you to please think of ways you can be there for everyone who is making this journey, Clinton said. To defend not only human rights globally, but to truly defend themselves and their rights, Clinton said.
Clintons remarks are part of a high-profile campaign by the Obama administration to mark Gay Pride Month with gatherings at various federal agencies, including the State Department on Tuesday. The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have held similar events.
Cheryl Mills, Clintons chief of staff, in her remarks to introduce Clinton said the Obama administration is trying to change the world and that it feels good to be on the right side of change.
Mills said Clinton has a personal commitment to the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community.
Human rights are gay rights and gay rights are human rights, once and for all, Clinton said. So here at the State Department we will continue to advance a comprehensive human rights agenda that includes the elimination of violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Clinton said that agenda must be advanced both around the world and at home.
So as we continue to advance LGBT rights in other countries, we also must continually work to make sure we are advancing the agenda here, Clinton said.
She closed her remarks by commenting on the significance of the gathering at the U.S. Department of State.
And I thank you for being part of one of historys great moments, Clinton said.
That perverted and mentally ull BO and his appointed minions have been unleashing massive destruction, from within, on our society, our institutions and our military. It is way beyond the time to excise him from misery: http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com
well this should get her votes.
She’s right about one thing: “Weve come such a far distance in our own country.”
And those poor necrophiliacs? Don't they have feelings too?
Gee Hillary...where's the love?
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened.” (Romans 1:21)
Yeah, like the world's worst kept secret...
I think it’s entirely possible that she’s gotten more p#ssy than Bill over the years.
You know, just one day I would like to wake up and not read about some perversion, incompetence or stupidity from this ignorant, no-talent a$$ clown’s collection of scumbags.
Now THAT would be historical, unprecedented, and unexpected.
The only way they can replenish their numbers is by recruitment..................
Just look at what she said in that light: "..................to really look for those who might need a helping hand; particularly young people; particularly teenagers who still today have such a difficult time......"
That'th right thweety. We're jutht like everybody elthe
Alas, today is not the day.
We have the most unqualified chief executive in our history, matched by the most unqualified Secretary of State, not to mention the most unqualified VP, the most unqualifed Homeland Security Secretary, Attorney General, etc etc......
The Sociopath of State speaks. Take notice dead-end gang.
I’m so with you. But at this point in time, the only way to accomplish that is to not read anything, turn on the tv or the radio for the day. I shudder to think how much lower this administration can sink.
Many things would be different in this world if parents and society would promote the satisfaction of leading an honest and selfless life.
If they can’t reproduce, where are they coming from? We seem to be overrun with them.
So the Church, established millennia ago on the basis of Faith, is inadequate to the task of imposing morality, but the State, well documented as inept in everything it touches, is capable?
It's a great day to be gay!!
