Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, must be obsessed with the LGBT community. He mentions us on a weekly basis, if not daily. His latest move? A press release thanking John Kerry for a list of LGBT accomplishments for President-elect Donald Trump to undo.
Yes, the hate group leader actually published a press release to mockingly thank the United States’ outgoing secretary of state for outlining efforts to promote LGBT rights globally in his exit memo.
Writes Perkins in part:
Of course, there have been a handful of people — including some Republicans — who’ve insisted that the agency has nothing to do with core values issues. Well, they don’t have to take our word for it — take John Kerry’s! He devotes 21 pages to his “accomplishments” at the department, many of which include his shared crusade with predecessor Hillary Clinton to export abortion and sexual liberalism to the “unenlightened” countries of the world.
Among other things, Kerry highlighted the administration’s role in “mobilizing international support for” three “historic” U.N. resolutions “embracing LGBTI rights.” As for the financial impact of Obama’s radicalism, the State Department also launched the Global Equality Fund in 2011, whose sole purpose is to advance (read: bully) other nations into embracing Obama’s twisted views of gender, marriage, and sexuality. In five years, the Fund spent “more than $33 million in 80 countries ‘in support of civil society efforts to advance the human rights of LGBTI persons.’”
With America’s reputation in tatters after almost a decade of this liberal propaganda, it’s no wonder conservatives are concerned and committed to eliminating them. The Trump administration has a right — and I would argue, a responsibility — to get the activists behind this destructive campaign out of the State Department. In the end, it’s not just inconsistent with American values, but the law.
