Civil liberties

Just Like Bush

The Obama administration has issued a joint statement with the United Nations opposing the criminalization of being a member of the LGBT community and this has angered certain Christian "rights" groups, including the Family Rights Council.

Apparently tolerance of thy neighbor is a bad thing.

A right-leaning Christian group is outraged that that an Obama administration joint statement with the United Nations opposes the criminalization of homosexuality.

The Family Rights Council (FRC) has taken to calling the resolution "Operation International Tolerance."

"While American forces bomb away at Libya, the Obama administration is launching another global offensive: Operation International Tolerance," a FRC report said. "As he looks on from South America, the President put troops on the ground today for a meeting of the U.N.'s Human Rights Council, where his diplomats plan to strong-arm other countries into embracing homosexuality."

"In a major U-turn from the Bush years, the Obama administration is actually initiating an 'anti-discrimination' resolution to force acceptance of the world's gays and lesbians."

Oh yes. He's "strong-arming" others into embracing homosexuality. A storied tactic during the Mau-Mau revolution, in Indonesia, where there are no rotary-clubs but definitely boy scouts. You have to understand his anti-colonial viewpoint. Or something.

I can't be the only who sees the irony in a group named "Family Rights" being opposed to creating more families. I would however like to thank them for reminding the world that President Obama is nothing like former President Bush.
