Will U.S. bully nations if they are anti-'gay'?

As the Obama administration continues to push homosexuality beyond America's borders, a different tactic is being used against those who don't agree.

Speaking before a gathering of American and international "gay rights" activists earlier this week in the nation's capital, Vice President Joe Biden said, in effect, that creating and protecting special rights for homosexuals is the product of a civilized nation, adding:  "I don't care what your culture is. Inhumanity is inhumanity is inhumanity. Prejudice is prejudice is prejudice."

Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action and founder of Barbwire.com, says to hear Biden one would think America's chief export right now is immorality.

"... The fact [is] that the majority of the world recognizes that it's offensive to compare sexual license to true human rights violations," he tells OneNewsNow. "And the fact that that escapes Joe Biden and President Obama boggles the mind."

Echoing earlier comments by White House national security adviser Susan Rice, Biden called homosexual rights "the civil rights issue of our day."

Barber argues that those who promote LGBT rights are using "euphemistic language to dishonestly conflate human rights with disordered sexual license."

Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)"For Joe Biden to tell the world, a world that embraces sexual morality and traditional values, [that] I don't care what your culture is [is essentially telling other nations] You must embrace the United States' immoral view of sexual immorality and sexual sin or we're going to penalize you with the powers of the purse string."

Which Barber points out is exactly what the U.S. has done to Uganda. That country passed a law in February that strengthened criminal penalties for homosexual acts and made life sentences possible for those convicted of breaking the law. Last week, the U.S. imposed visa bans on Ugandan officials who the administration feels are violating homosexual rights there.
