U.S. President Barack Obama ordered the use of U.S. foreign aid to promote rights for gays and lesbians abroad, including combating attempts by foreign governments to criminalize homosexuality. The U.S. State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development are ordered to use foreign aid to assist gays and lesbians who are facing human rights violations, according to this AP report.
No mention of the plight of Christians in countries receiving U.S. money.
Also no mention of the treatment of women in these countries.
No mention of the treatment of children either. Unless they happen to be LGTB children (Lesbian Gay Transgender Bisexual).
According to the AP report, this is part of the White House's outreach to gays and lesbians, a core Democratic constituency. Again, as I have discussed again, and again, and again, the minority rules, minority gets the money and the attention while Christians are getting slaughtered all over the globe, especially as part of Obama's Arab Spring.
If you have any doubts about the attacks on Christians around the world, check out the website Christians Under Attack, scroll down and read some of the articles. Country after country, Turkey, Egypt, Nigeria, Pakistan, Yemen, (insert almost any Islamic country, Muslim majority country), and countries you would not immediately consider like -- Manhattan USA, Britain, and on and on.
Check out the treatment of women and children in countries that receive U.S. money. One-third of all US aid goes to Egypt and Israel, according to this website where you can see the countries receiving U.S. money and the amounts received in 2010.
I am sick of this, sick of the minority receiving preference to the majority. American taxpayers are crushed under the weight of taxes and a president who has spent more than all previous presidents combined. I'm with Rick Perry here, place foreign aid for every country at zero and re-evaluate every dollar we give away.
