Trump administration launches global effort to end criminalization of homosexuality
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, is leading the effort, which kicks off Tuesday evening in Berlin. The U.S. embassy is flying in LGBT activists from across Europe for a strategy dinner to plan to push for decriminalization in places that still outlaw homosexuality â€” mostly concentrated in the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean.
â€śIt is concerning that, in the 21st century, some 70 countries continue to have laws that criminalize LGBTI status or conduct,â€ť said a U.S. official involved in organizing the event....

Craft, a top Republican donor from Kentucky, rose this week as a serious contender for the post based on a recommendation by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a fellow Kentuckian.
...she will need to be confirmed by the US Senate....

A more sensible pick then the present ambassador to Germany would be. he is the highest ranking homosexual that Trump has pick for a federal office. Also a Jerusalem Post writer thought that he would be picked for the UN Ambassadorship. đź‘Ž

Trump wouldnâ€™t answer question about campaign to decriminalize homosexuality Ad: 6 seconds President Trump reacted with surprise when asked Wednesday about reports that his administration was making a global push to decriminalize homosexuality.
In an Oval Office exchange with reporters, Trump was asked about the plan, which was first reported by NBC News on Tuesday.
â€śMr. President, on your push to decriminalize homosexuality, are you going to do that? And why?â€ť
â€śSay it?â€ť Trump responded.
â€śYour push to decriminalize homosexuality around the world,â€ť the reporter clarified.
â€śI donâ€™t know which report youâ€™re talking about,â€ť Trump said. â€śWe have many reports.â€ť
I don't think the point is politicians affiliation to *any* faith? or Bible ethics.
Yes we live in a fallen world but today and in recent times what we have observed is an increasing deterioration of moral principles previously held by even the secular world.
Ephesians 6:11/12 teaches.... 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
The christian stand against the 'wiles of the Devil' and 'against the rulers of darkness' appears to be increasing in vehemence and tumult. These struggles with the reprobate secular world are burgeoning in a more palpable, antagonistic and hostile environment.
Question: What is happening?
Is the 'spiritual realm' escalating in intensity of persecution, the lives of humanity? Are we observing the devil and demonic powers prevailing in ascendancy in the human race?
Quote: "Many will own and acknowledge Christ in times of prosperity who will desert and deny him in times of persecution; one witness, when the cause is upon trial, is worth many at other times." [Matt Henry on Rev.11].
Well Frank, Trump is a politician. To believe that he is genuine in anything is a stretch. That said, in the past God has even used heathen kings in His plan. Even if it is to usher in the end. Just saying.
Reminders! We are strangers and aliens! Anyone who believes that Trump is a genuine Christian is deceived.
Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed [be] the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech [you] as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
Jude 1:7 â€śEven as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.â€ť
Isaiah 3:9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

1) US to alienate God. 2) US to decriminalize Abomination. 3) US to decriminalize sin. 4) US to deny repentance unto salvation. 5) US to reject the Crucified Christ. 6) US to ditch the Bible, Word and Laws of God. 7) US to support the antichrist. 8) US to criminalize Christians. 9) Homosexuals now in charge of US moral standards.

GOD commands:- Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men,"
"God Bless America"??? Apparently Not.
