AFTAH Says Obama's and Hillary's International 'Gay Rights' Push Will Only Alienate Nations Who Reject America's Moral Corruption

CHICAGO, Dec. 8, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration's announcement Tuesday of a campaign to link American foreign aid to the promotion of homosexuality-based "rights" abroad:
With their new escalation of promoting homosexual behavior to other nations through U.S. foreign policy, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have raised America's defiance toward her Creator to a new level -- while needlessly alienating nations less morally compromised than our own. Not content to keep our decadence between our shores, the United States -- through aggressively pro-"gay" Democratic administrations -- now demands that other countries sink to our level by embracing homosexuality as a "human right."
Who knew that when President Ronald Reagan spoke idealistically about America becoming a "shining city on the hill," that city would turn out to be Sodom? Hillary earned plaudits from the Left with her U.N. speech on international "gay rights," but her words were an affront to our Declaration of Independence, which appeals to "Nature and Nature's God."
By redefining "human rights" to include the normalization of same-sex behaviors and gender confusion, Obama and Clinton have turned God's natural moral order on its head. There are many countries -- including Muslim-dominated nations and major powers like Russia -- that reject homosexuality. By pushing sexual deviance on these nations, we only confirm their perception of America as a corrupt and declining -- and very arrogant -- superpower.
America, rooted in the Bible, historically embraced anti-sodomy laws, but now we are in the grip of an unprecedented moral and spiritual crisis that blackens our reputation worldwide. As one Muslim tweeted in reaction to Obama's international "gay rights" plan: "There is a great divide between the Founding Fathers and the pro-gay regime ruling America [today]."
Aberrant sexuality is not a fundamental liberty and defending morality is not hateful "bigotry." Hillary claims, "Being gay is not a Western invention, it is a human reality." But homosexuality is about changeable behavior -- not intrinsic, innate identity -- as evidenced by countless men and women who now live happy lives apart from homosexuality, despite once considering themselves "gay" or "lesbian."
Homosexuality -- once widely regarded as a Crime Against Nature -- is no more a "fundamental human right" than any other sexual sin. Moreover, its practice is linked disproportionately to sexual diseases like HIV, anal cancer, hepatitis, gonorrhea and syphilis. Culturally and politically speaking, what makes this perversion unique is that it has a powerful and well-funded ("gay") movement behind it. (There are no "Adultery Pride Parades" or "Porn-Users Pride Months.") However, that does not make it right. All Americans who love God and respect His wonderful design for mankind should be ashamed of Obama's and Hillary's campaign to force a deeply flawed sexual ideology on innocent nations that do NOT want to emulate American decadence.
