'Prejudice Is Prejudice': Biden Says Gay Rights Trump Culture
Seeking to mobilize a global front against anti-gay violence and discrimination, Vice President Joe Biden declared Tuesday that protecting gay rights is a defining mark of a civilized nation and must trump national cultures and social traditions.
Biden told a gathering of U.S. and international gay rights advocates that President Barack Obama has directed that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women around the world.
Yes, John Yurich. In truth,those who are against sodomy, are not anti-gay.The word "gay" has been hijacked. We are against people flaunting their sexual deviancy in front of our children and that would include any one, including, our country's entertainment idols who want to bump and grind in their underwear.There used to be a time when children didn't even know what sex was until they were old enough to learn. They shouldn't even have to hear the word "homosexual". ..other fine posts here and John Perreault, thank you for reinforcing that it is God who sets the standards.
Buffoon Biden NEVER was Presidential material and neither was/is the deviant Impostor from Kenya he serves under. These people are vile and promote the vilest behavior as rights, which of course is godless, wicked, foolishness!
Hmm, next he'll want to defend murderer's rights to kill people? He's not Presidential material. Unnatural behavior transcends cultures alright, and it should be stopped.

I believe in having a humane attitude and respecting the legitimate rights of all people in a civil society, but that does not include affirming people with fundamentally disordered sexual lifestyles in the "rightness" or "normalcy" of their lifestyle. It does not include reinforcing sexual deviancy in the culture by legislation that seeks to 'normalize' it. By no means does respect for human rights require any society to affirm, dignify, or celebrate any lifestyle that God calls sinful. Showing love to people with anorexia does not involve agreeing with them that they are really overweight and reaffirming them in their self-destructive effort to lose more weight.
"...protecting gay rights is a defining mark of a civilized nation and must trump national cultures and social traditions."
Wow; I can barely believe that I am seeing this. If this is Joe Biden's idea of civilization, then God help us. Ironically enough, widespread acceptance and practice of sodomy eventually destroys civilization.
I've seen other people here make comments to this effect, but it truly is amazing that, in such a short time, sodomites have influenced people's thinking in their favor. Just a few short decades ago, this would have been unthinkable. When the inherent sinful nature of mankind is combined with the programming of the media, wicked things happen.
I don't get it. Why are fruitcakes called "Gay"? The word gay means happy and fruitcakes are not happy. Biden really is demon possessed for supporting fruitcakeness. In fact anybody who supports fruitcakeness is demon possessed.
#1 accepting the queer lifestyle is the mark of many a great nation...just before they fall into ruin.
#2...and keep in mind that I live and work in one. Will this blanket statement be applied to all of the oil rich Muslim nations that Mr. Obama is so fond of?
Let me assure you, the so-called 'anti-gay' discrimination is alive and well out here. Behind closed doors the society is just as perverse as ours, but in public that lifestyle choice is shunned and may well land you in prison and/or deported depending on your nationality. Where are the embargoes and sanctions against these countries?
There won't be any because they are non-Christian and they have the oil that America neeeds.
So, according to Joe Biden's definition we have only been a civilized nation for about a year...interesting. And since gay rights have been normalized over the pat year we now have transgender groups , polygamist groups and pedophile groups are all demanding to same rights and recognition. That must mean we are really becoming civilized! And since we have discarded to only rational bencark for morality...who gets to say when enough is enough? God alone has the wisdom and authority to set morality. Joe please start thinking a leading like a reasonable man and not a vote pandering presidential wanna be.
