Right-wing pastor Scott Lively is once again defending Uganda’s crackdown on its gay community, taking to BarbWire today to criticize new U.S. sanctions against Uganda along with the appointments of gay ambassadors and American support for LGBT events abroad.
“[I]t is encouraging to see the Africans standing up to the United States and it’s ‘Babylonian’ State Department, which, at least in regards to sexual morality and the LGBT agenda has truly become ‘The Great Satan’ of the world,” Lively writes.
Still, it is encouraging to see the Africans standing up to the United States and it’s “Babylonian” State Department, which, at least in regards to sexual morality and the LGBT agenda has truly become “The Great Satan” of the world. Following a “Gay Pride” celebration in 2011 at the US Embassy in Islamibad [sic], the Pakistani government condemned US activism as “cultural terrorism.”
To be fair, State has been under the control of the LGBT movement since before President Obama took office. I was in Riga, Latvia in 2006 and 2007 to help the Latvian pro-family movement resist EU pressure to allow a “Gay Pride Parade.” We succeeded in 2006, but then in 2007 we failed after the LGBT organizing efforts were joined by LGBT activists at the U.S. Embassy under Ambassador Catherine Todd Bailey of the Bush Administration. The late Pastor Ken “Hutch” Hutcherson and I confronted diplomatic staff about the matter at the Embassy in Riga, but were unsuccessful at stopping the parade.
However, “Gay” power at State had grown by a magnitude of 10 under Obama. Openly homosexual Ambassadors are now being posted around the world. And in December of 2011, the Obama Administration declared the advancement of the homosexual agenda a priority of the United States government around the world. Among other things all US agencies abroad were directed to “combat the criminalization by foreign governments of LGBT status or conduct [i.e. sodomy laws] and to expand efforts to combat discrimination, homophobia, and intolerance on the basis of LGBT status or conduct” [i.e Biblical pro-family views], including funding of the “gay” agenda by “Agencies involved with foreign aid, assistance, and development.”
