A pro-family activist says he's not surprised that the Obama administration is promoting a pro-homosexual agenda around the world, including in Israel. 

"I think what (President) Obama cares about most in this world is the homosexual activist movement," comments Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.

He was reacting to a first-hand account from American couple Dwight Widaman and wife Anita, who were driving by the American Embassy in Tel Aviv and saw "gay pride" flags hanging from the embassy roof.

"I was shocked that the gay pride flags displayed dwarfed most American flags I have seen in my life," Dwight Widaman told OneNewsNow in an e-mail.

The email explained that the Widamans were leaving Israel at the same time "gay pride week" was beginning, hence the "rainbow" flags.  (Related article: Thousands attending Tel Aviv gay pride parade)

LaBarbera says the Obama administration is ramping up its support of the pro-homosexual, pro-transgender agenda abroad.  Obama himself, says the activist, seems more "jazzed" about pushing for homosexual rights than any other issue.

Meanwhile, many countries around the world don't share share Obama's radical agenda.

"Israel has a fairly liberal record on homosexuality," LaBarbera says. "But what is truly shocking the administration is doing this regardless of the country, regardless of how conservative the country's moral values are."  

For example, he says, the United States is trying to "bully" Jamaica to drop its anti-sodomy law, and African countries have complained that the U.S. is doing the same.

CNS News reported in a 2013 story that the United States was facing backlash for pushing countries to accept homosexuality.

One example was the Roman Catholic nation of Dominican Republic, where a homosexual activist was appointed ambassador. 

Seventy-eight countries outlaw homosexual activity, including some that consider it a capital offense.
