On Dec. 6, the White House released a memorandum instructing the heads of U.S. executive departments and agencies abroad to join in the “struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons” around the world.OK. Townhall gets that part correct.
With all due respect to the president, perhaps this is an all-too-obvious attempt to garner votes from a group that wasn’t that impressed with his performance until he successfully imposed homosexual behavior on the military earlier this year. Yet while he’s doing his best to appeal to that group, Christians around the world continue to be persecuted—to be hunted like animals, then tortured and killed when captured—yet we are still awaiting a serious White House memorandum on their behalf.
Furthermore, the LGBT community was far from dissatisfied with the Obama administration. Those who might have been, received a sobering reality check from the unhinged crazies who represent the potential nominees of the Republican Party. What? We are going to vote for the likes of Gingrich? His own gay sister says that she will not vote for him.
I am sure that Christians (and Jews) are persecuted in many countries. However, I am unaware of any country that makes being a Christian a crime (there are some countries that make it illegal to convert to Christianity), let alone one punishable by death.
76 countries criminalize homosexuality. Five of those provide a death penalty for being gay.
What is it that is so hard for Mr. Bull to understand?
