His priorities are called into question. If Obama fought this hard to save Ambassador Stevens and the other three Americans from Benghazi as he does promoting LGBT, those men would be home alive. Christians are being persecuted and killed all over this world and this country is in the midst of a racial divide but Obama can find the time to set aside a Sunday as an international day against homophobia and transphobia. Is that a big problem here or can the President take a little time to inform Iran that there will be no further sanctions lifted until our American citizens falsely imprisoned there are returned. Now that IS a big problem.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama issued a statement on Saturday indicating that he and First Lady Michelle Obama would commemorate this Sunday as “the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.”
In the statement, the preisdent said he is working to “address the specific needs of transgender persons.”
Here is the president’s statement:
Michelle and I join our fellow Americans and others around the world in commemorating the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia tomorrow, May 17. We take this opportunity to reaffirm that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights are human rights, to celebrate the dignity of every person, and to underscore that all people deserve to live free from fear, violence, and discrimination, regardless of who they are or whom they love.
We work toward this goal every day. Here at home, we are working to end bias-motivated violence, combat discrimination in the workplace, and address the specific needs of transgender persons. Overseas, I am proud of the steps that the United States has taken to prioritize the protection and promotion of LGBT rights in our diplomacy and global outreach.
There is much more to do, and this fight for equality will not be won in a day. But we will keep working, at home and abroad, and we will keep fighting, for however long it takes until we are all able to live free and equal in dignity and rights.
