When Homosexual persecution trumps Christianity
Will the White House's new wide ranging foreign aid requirements that tie treatment of homosexuals to aid money help Christians? Probably not. In fact, it seems that the White House believes persecution of Christians is far less a problem than discrimination against homosexuals. So much so that the man who occupies the Oval Office has directed his foreign policy arms to use taxpayer money as a lever for better treatment of the lifestyle that God calls an "abomination." The bottom line is that the president has ordered his State Department and the Agency for International Development to use your tax money to assist homosexuals who are facing human rights violations in countries that receive US money.
He said, "The struggle to end discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons is a global challenge, and one that is central to the United States' commitment to promoting human rights." Associated Press reports, "The White House said Tuesday's announcement marked the first US government strategy to combat human rights abuses against gays and lesbians abroad. The order also directs US government agencies to use foreign assistance to protect human rights and advance non-discrimination, and work with international organizations to fight discrimination against gays and lesbians." One has to wonder how this will work in the president's beloved Islamic states where homosexuals are put to death.
The hypocrisy here is amazing. This administration is in partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood has condoned the outright mass killing of Coptic Christians in Egypt. If it could find homosexuals in Egypt, it would allow the killing of them too because homosexuality is illegal under Sharia law. Saudi Arabia discriminates against Christians, as does every Islamic nation. There is no Christian church left in Afghanistan. Few Christian churches remain in Iraq. Iran kills Christians. China persecutes Christians. But this White House does and says only what is required to pay lip service and get a positive press hit once in a while regarding the harsh persecution of Christians in these countries.
Yet, America's tax money is now going to leverage the spread of homosexuality. One can bet that there will be no reduction in funds to so-called "democratic" Islamic states, even though Sharia is very clear about homosexuality. This administration consistently and openly defies the word of God by using the full weight of the US to promote evil. The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:28, "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not becoming." Verse 32 says, "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them." What does this say about us who elect such?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
