Secretary of State Antony Blinken Orders LGBT Flags Flown at U.S. Embassies, Will Name Special Envoy for Gay Rights
Breitbart ^ | January 31, 2021 | PENNY STARR

LGBT activists are cheering Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s announcement that he will reverse an order from President Donald Trump and put up “pride” flags at U.S. Embassies around the world.

Outfront magazine reported on the development:

The Biden administration is off to a hopeful start, as Secretary of State nominee, Antony Blinken, has confirmed a recommitment to LGBTQ rights.

In a memo from July 2020, former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper released a list of flags permitted to be displayed at U.S. military bases. Missing from the list was the LGBTQ pride flag, which Esper compared to the confederate flag. Prior to the ban, embassies raised the flag during pride month on the official embassy flagpole.

During the hearing, Blinken also confirmed that he plans to appoint an envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTQ persons, a position created by Barack Obama in 2015 that wasn’t filled during the Trump presidency.

Blinken claimed violence against that demographic increased while Trump was in office.

Romans 1:18-32 says why these people act this way.

WTF?!

They’re not a STATE.

Can we now order the secretary of state to fly Christian flags like the Knights of Columbus?

How about just our military flags?

This is BS and you know the “BLM” flags aren’t far behind now.

Sinking deeper and deeper into decadence. God’s patience will not last forever.

Blinken is Hunter's pal who was part of his Burisma deal.

How the hell did he pass muster?

That is a rhetorical question.

What law is there to fly any other flag than the U.S. Flag?

“Sinking deeper and deeper into decadence. God’s patience will not last forever.”

It’s not decadence per se it’s coup d’état.

It is a different government and country.

Such flags have no place at those embassies.

It sets a precedence of a favored class, over all others.

Are there straight flags too?

“Oh, we just want to come out of the closet and live our
lives in peace.”

How about the rest of us being able to live our lives in
peace?

That’ll go over really well in the 57 Islamic states—and much of the former Soviet Eastern bloc.

There is no law.

EO’s (and those issued by the underlings) are not laws.

Unless, of course, we wish to concede that there is no longer any rule of law.
