A pro-family group says Vice President Joe Biden has it all wrong about who's to blame for stifling truthful talk about homosexuality.
Speaking in Davos, Switzerland, on Wednesday, the VP pressured business leaders to take the lead in pushing other countries to adopt special rights and elevate the status of homosexuals. He then complained about culture.
"I've had it up to here with culture. I really mean it," he said. "Culture never justifies rank, raw discrimination or violation of human rights." He also spoke of a "straightjacket" imposed by culture on people who might otherwise be supportive of the LGBT lifestyle. (Watch video)
Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council finds it strange Biden would talk of culture imposing a straightjacket on people.
"... Actually the pro-homosexual movement is dedicated to putting a straightjacket on people and making it impossible for them to even express the view that marriage is the union of a man and a woman or that children do better with a mom and a dad," Sprigg tells OneNewsNow.
The FRC spokesman says "the shoe is really on the other foot, in terms of a culture imposing limits on people" – adding that what Biden is ignoring is that an important part of culture is people of faith.
"It shows a certain contempt for people's religious views for him to say that he's 'had it up to here with culture,'" Sprigg expresses.
He adds that every culture and every religion has the right to pass judgment on whether to believe homosexual conduct is appropriate.
