“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” — Thomas Jefferson
With all of our problems in the world what is our State Department doing? Hillary Clinton and her State Department are sponsoring Gay pride parades in Rome, right under the Pope’s nose. Take note you left-wing Catholics who love Obama so much.
CNSNews.com reports Hillary’s State Dept. ‘Instrumental in Sealing Deal’ For Lady Gaga’s Gay Pride Gig in Rome:
“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the State Department played an instrumental role in “sealing the deal” for pop-rock star Lady Gaga to perform at a gay pride rally in Rome, Italy.
Clinton specifically pointed to a letter that David Thorne, the U.S. ambassador to Italy, sent to Lady Gaga urging her to participate in the event.
“And then there is the work that our embassy team in Rome has been doing,” Clinton said. “Two weeks ago they played an instrumental role in bringing Lady Gaga to Italy for a Euro Pride concert.
“Now as many of you know Lady Gaga is Italian American and a strong supporter of LGBT rights,” said Clinton. “And the organizers of the Euro Pride event desperately wanted her to perform and a letter to her from Ambassador Thorne was instrumental in sealing the deal.”
Mrs. Clinton made the remarks at the State Department at a celebration of LGBT Pride Month co-hosted by the department and Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies (GLIFAA), a group that, according to its website, “represents lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) personnel and their families in the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Foreign Commercial Service, Foreign Agricultural Service, and other foreign affairs agencies and offices in the U.S. Government.”
On June 11, Lady Gaga performed at a rally at the ancient Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy. The rally followed a gay pride march through the city of Rome.
Gaga sparked controversy earlier this year when she released a video of her song “Judas” on Easter Sunday. The video depicted Gaga as a Mary Magdalene figure--in a motorcycle gang—who becomes enamored with Judas. “The video opens with a motorcycle gang cruising down a freeway, as Gaga clutches onto a Jesus-like figure who wears a golden crown of thorns,” said a Billboard.com description of the video.
Oh, I'm in love with Judas, Judas,” says the song. “In the most Biblical sense I am beyond repentance. Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind.”
This is almost too much for me to comment on. Here we have our Secretary of State promoting a homosexual life style in a foreign country. Perhaps she should take her Gay pride crap to Malaysia or Saudi Arabia where the population is predominantly Muslim and she can take Lady Gaga with her. I’m sure the imams and mullahs would just love to see the LBTG gang marching down their streets ala San Francisco.
If a bunch of Italian gays and lesbians want to parade down the Via del Fori Imperiali from the Vittorio Emanuele II Monument to the Coliseum in their outlandish costumes it’s the business of the Italians, not our State Department.
Rome and the Vatican is the seat of the Roman Catholic Church, a church that views homosexuality as an affront to God. What business is it of our State Department to sponsor a blasphemous, vulgar pop star to insult millions of Christians and Catholics around the world? Just because Hillary Clinton has no moral compass does not mean that millions of Americans believe as she does. This is just another example of how a very small special interest group is driving the agenda of the progressive left.
