Kerry: Gay rights are 'the very heart' of U.S. diplomatic efforts world-wide

EltonJohnJohnKerry-colorNever mind that silly war on Islamic Jihad or Chinese cyber-warfare… let’s focus on the important stuff.

There was a time when promoting American interests overseas was the primary raison d’etre for the State Department, but now Secretary John Kerry is stating that promoting and protecting the “universal human rights” of all the world’s people “no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity” is at “the very heart of our diplomacy.”

According to the right-of-center news portal Life Site News, Kerry in a recorded message ensured that he wished to join in with all the people of the world in “celebrating” LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered) Pride month on June 10, 2013.

To leave nothing vague or ambiguous regarding our nation’s Diplomatic Corps actions in regards to homosexual rights around the globe, the former Massachusetts Senator and presidential candidate stated:

Across the globe, in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas our diplomats are assisting local LGBT organizations and supporting local human rights advocates working to promote equality, create dialogue, and ensure protections for LGBT individuals.

Putting aside the war on Islamic Jihad, Chinese cyber-attacks on the American military, and advocating international trade deals that would be advantageous to the American workers, Kerry quoted Barack Obama when he stated that the struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons was “a global challenge.”

Not quite finished quoting his boss, Kerry went on to relate Obama’s belief that the fight for greater LGBT rights are “central to the United States’ commitment to promoting human rights.”

Kerry’s comments concerning the mission for the State Department are reminiscent of NASA Director Chuck Bolden’s announcement on the al-Jazeera television network in 2011 that the basic reason NASA exists has changed drastically. (Click here for video)

Instead of exploring the vast reaches of the cosmos, the foremost of the three goals for the new space honcho is now to ensure Muslims “feel good” about themselves:

When I became the NASA administrator… he [Obama] charged me with three things.

One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science… and math and engineering.
