Obama Administration to Endorse Decriminalization of Homosexual Acts

I thought it wasn’t cool for the U.S. to be bossing other nations. But I guess not because the Obama Administration is going to sign a UN declaration calling for world wide forced acceptance of homosexual acts. No matter the cultural/religious and/or societal traditions of other nations.

The declaration is problematic for many reasons. One, it makes comment on other nations’ laws (based on their citizens’ morality). Two, the declaration conflicts with U.S. state and federal laws:

Gay rights and other groups had criticized the Bush administration when it refused to sign the declaration when it was presented at the United Nations on Dec. 19. U.S. officials said then that the U.S. opposed discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation but that parts of the declaration raised legal questions that needed further review.

According to negotiators, the Bush team had concerns that those parts could commit the federal government on matters that fall under state jurisdiction. In some states, landlords and private employers are allowed to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation; on the federal level, gays are not allowed to serve openly in the military.

It was not immediately clear on Tuesday how the Obama administration had come to a different conclusion.

    Someone (I won’t call any names) is playing God and he and his administration are in for a very rude awakening…

    Obama is a big federal guy, which makes sense that he’d love the UN. State’s rights to him are just a block to his power….little people to be stepped over. If he can overrule hundreds of individual state laws on abortion with one stroke of the pen on FOCA, he would have no qualms about committing the United States to following UN resolutions supporting gay marriage.

    Overrule hundreds of marriage laws and statutes with one swoop of the pen? That’s the danger of this mentality.

    His own team that he sent to the UN last week introduced language to one of their resolutions basically creating gay marriage as a new human right. The UN is a dangerous threat to our sovereignty, and all the more so with a power hungry, UN friendly Obama administration.

    The UN is more than just a blip on the radar with these people in power. Signing on to UN resolutions could easily turn into something very ugly for the sovereignty of our nation.

    Either this is one more short sighted decision by the administration or something much more planned and diabolical and closer to the conspiracy theories out there. I’m not sure which, anymore.

    The UN is something we need to keep an eye on with this administration. As one family advocacy group reports from last week:

    “there is a “very healthy homosexual lobby” in the State Department and in various parts of the U.S. government. In fact, he reports that for a brief moment last week at the United Nations, the Obama administration endorsed a document titled “The International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS,” which calls for criminal penalties for those who criticize homosexuality.”

    Yeah, I totally agree. I think that the Obama administration should stay out of it. Granted laws in other countries are much more severe (allowing the killing of homosexuals, etc) but those countries shouldn’t be made to abide by America’s moral standard.

    So, while I don’t agree that you should kill homosexuals, if those countries feel that that’s the morally right things to do, who are we to challenge that, right?
