Trump Administration Condemns God’s Law, America’s Past

Newly appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently released a statement in honor of the “International Day Against Homophonbia, Transphobia and Biphobia.” The statement condemns any criminalization of deviant sexual practices:

The United States stands for the protection of fundamental freedoms and universal human rights. Our nation was founded on the bedrock principle that we are all created equal – and that every person is entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Around the world, far too many governments continue to arrest and abuse their citizens simply for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI). Fear and bigotry are enshrined in laws that criminalize LGBTI status or conduct in more than 70 countries. In some, being LGBTI is punishable by death.

The United States firmly opposes criminalization, violence and serious acts of discrimination such as in housing, employment and government services, directed against LGBTI persons. We use public and private diplomacy to raise human rights concerns, provide emergency assistance to people at risk, and impose visa restrictions and economic sanctions against those who persecute them.

On the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, the United States stands with people around the world in affirming the dignity and equality of all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or sex characteristics. Human rights are universal, and LGBTI people are entitled to the same respect, freedoms, and protections as everyone else.

According to the Trump administration, the Biblical law condemning homosexuality is fundamentally immoral. In addition to being blasphemous, this statement promoting the “freedom” to engage in perverse acts is also historically illiterate. When America was founded homosexuality was illegal, and in some cases it was punishable by death. The US Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of anti-sodomy laws in the 1980s, and these laws were not declared unconstitutional until 2003.

This statement from Pompeo demonstrates how pathetic, ignorant and dishonest modern conservatism has become.

    ANother moment for freedom. Firstly, one must applaud the Trump administration for consistency.

    Those promises and pledges that implied restoring law and even sovereignty now make one wonder if they were a verbal commitment by the president or just a dream those , who elected him had.

    But here is given proof of fatal misunderstanding. This victory , they are proclaiming is the death of a people’s constitution , that can be interpreted alone through its free expression. The new human rights are not constitution nor those freedoms , which were inalienable and which they were not to be infringed. One can curse and blasphemy as is exposed in the above foreign minister and the president but not greet with , Merry Christmas, nor sing Christmas carols , nor have a bible near a school nor pray , with exemption to Allah of course.

    More and more one can believe much of this nonsense with Russia is caused by the “inhuman” way they treat homo-sexual (Sodomites) . How may of them voted for you Mr. Trump?

    ANd these human rights are aegis for preventing healthy and inviolable discrimination protected by the laws sighed , US A COnstitution. But wait! These are not made from people from Virginia . No, the above language is not from any part of US COnstitution but the UN declaration of human rights.

    ANd where is the great wall Donald ? How many prototypes must you examine before you decide ? How sad . Have you learned this is unconstitutional to the UN declaration of human rights . No, there are no borders nor sovereignty. Nothing holy anymore. Is this what they celebrate?

    The law died when the UN was born . It should be only three states but alas they are sovereign: Sodom, Gomorrah , and the most evil twin sister , Israel and Judea. Merry Christmas , Mr. President. But the holiday season , I may be not free to greet you.
