Matt Barber, reacting to news that the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) is now an officially recognized NGO at the United Nations:
“This once again just highlights the fact that President Obama is fully in the tank of the radical homosexual activist lobby,” notes Matt Barber, attorney and head of cultural affairs at Liberty Counsel. “In keeping with his commitment to ram through his radical agenda, the president has once again circumvented the proper protocol and procedure in order to push a very unpopular policy.”
Barber thinks that flies in the face of efforts made by many countries to keep homosexual activists in the background at the U.N.
“[Obama] has thumbed his nose at all of the nations around the world that embrace sexual morality — and the president, in the name of the United States of America, has once again publicly embraced sexual immorality,” the Liberty Counsel attorney laments.
It must be confusing to be a wingnut. On the one hand, they are supposed to be constantly terrified of Islamic countries. They wax sanctimonious about how they are So Concerned about human rights violations in Iran and Afghanistan. But then, here you have Matt Barber “lamenting” that Obama is “thumb[ing] his nose at all of the nations around the world that embrace sexual morality.” He’s, of course, talking about Islamic theocracies and certain increasingly fundamentalist states in Africa, which hold similar “moral” stances to American wingnuts on the subject of LGBT people. Why is President Obama so mean to Iran? I mean, they believe in “traditional values,” just like Matt!
