It is amazing to see militantly anti-gay right-wing extremists like Peter LaBarbera and Elaine Donnelly claiming that President Obama’s upcoming speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner will somehow “alienate” people because he is associating with “radicals.”
But, once again, Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel takes the cake, slamming Obama for forcing “taxpayers” to foot the bill and adding an attack on his Noble Peace Prize just for good measure:
President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak Saturday night at a fundraising event for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a far-left lobbying group that promotes forcing Americans to accept and applaud homosexual behavior. The group regularly lobbies to force Americans to affirm homosexuality and targets youth with weekly “Queerly Speaking” YouTube videos to advance its agenda. Obama’s appearance at the fundraiser raises questions about the propriety of a President speaking at such an event, when taxpayers must pay the cost for his travel and security.
Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented: “Obama is the most divisive President in American history. He seems to relish in promoting radical policies and ideas that drive a wedge between people who hold contrasting beliefs and values. Obama will be known as President of the Divided States, because he has taken a radical stance in the culture war. He is on the wrong side of life, morality, and liberty. Although Obama was recently given the Nobel Peace Prize, he has done nothing to advance peace in this Nation or abroad. When abroad, he apologizes for America and is embarrassed by American exceptionalism. Domestically, Obama promotes a culture war. He is not the symbol of peace.”
