U.S. Embassy to hold First-Ever Gay Pride Party Tonight... In Iraq
In the short time that President Obama has been in office, there have been many breaches of foreign protocol such as an overt familiarity with the British Queen and bowing to the Saudi King. But the most significant indiscretion will occur tonight as homosexuality is promoted in our embassy in a foreign land--in Baghdad, Iraq, no less.
In the May 22, 2009 edition of The Washington Post, columnist Al Kamen wrote a piece entitled, "For One Night, Baghdad Gets a Pink Zone." He revealed that the State Department is "holding what the invitation says is the first-ever U.S. Embassy Gay Pride Theme Party next Friday at Bagdaddy's, which is the embassy employee association's pub."
The invitation, which was sent out on May 10, encouraged everyone to, "Dress in drag or as a gay icon."
The ideas of tolerance, diversity, and understanding are frequently touted by President Obama and his allies on the left. They have claimed that these attributes were lacking during the Bush years, specifically regarding Middle Eastern policy. However, by allowing a gay pride party to be sanctioned by the government the current administration is not showing any tolerance or understanding of the Middle Eastern culture and religion.
"The homosexual agenda has transformed from desiring equal treatment under the law to demanding state sanctioning of their chosen lifestyle."And...
"More offensive than our men in arms in an Islamic country are men in drag, as this strikes at the very core of propriety and decency within their culture."FULL STORY
And the left loves to carry on about how George Bush damaged relations with the rest of the world and how Obama was going to fix it.
Not so much.
