Rainbow Flag Imperialism

In an article the provoked the ire of LGBT websites, Family Research Council wrote (July 16, 2012):
When it comes to foreign policy, the Obama Administration has made it clear they will have two priorities -- promoting homosexuality and promoting abortion. The Administration has not only vocalized this policy but been quick to put taxpayer funds and resources behind it -- regardless of other countries' views on the matter. Earlier this year in the country of Bulgaria, the Administration spent tax dollars on a Gay Bulgarian Film Festival as well as an "after show party." In June, the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria, alongside 12 ambassadors from other countries, endorsed that country's gay parade in an official declaration.

This brought the attention of 20 civil society organizations who wrote a letter to the embassies expressing their outrage that these countries would seek to promote activity that is against Bulgarian law, which clearly defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This all seems to be part of the President's push, headed up by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to use official U.S. resources to promote homosexuality. For example, while the Administration is slow to defend oppressed Christians who are being killed for their beliefs in Muslim and communist countries, they took less than one day to condemn the Russian government for barring a homosexual pride parade in Moscow. It is clear with this Administration that family and babies take a back seat to exporting immorality.

(In my opinion, God hates Bombing-For-Democracy Flag Imperialism more than Rainbow Flag Imperialism.)

Oh Tony,

I'm not sure you can prioritize thusly: If one classifies "Bombing-For-Democracy Flag Imperialism" as Willful Murder, then it could be classed among those sins that are called "Sins that cry to heaven," which also include Sodomy.

I wonder how anyone can say one is worse than another. The only thing one could add, I should surmise, is that Sodomy, unlike Murder, is somehow "unnatural" (as Aquinas would insist), even though both are clearly MORTAL sins that would damn your soul to hell without due penance and amendment of life.

Dr. Blosser, I hope you realize that just as signers of the American Declaration of Independence were putting their lives on the line, so your posting of articles such as these leaves a record in cyberspace that may someday soon inculpate you in hate crimes. By the same token, I respect and admire your courage.
