The administration just loves double booking like this…

White House hosts monumental conference on Hateraide – the meeting is alleged to be on the subject of abortion but I can’t help but regard this as a meeting of everything wrong with the country, all under one roof. That roof just happens to be the white house.
Oh if I were a violent woman…..
At any rate, the meeting is with the head of President Barack Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (which leaves just as foul a taste in my mouth now as it would have four years ago).

Of course, certain segments of the would-be Covenant “Quiverfull*” contingent have their own agendas – doctors having to render treatment and aid to someone, regardless of whether the patient believes and cowtows to that doctor’s invisible sky man is anathema to these people – and of course they are portraying it, hypocritical to the last, as taking away their rights.
(And yes, we’re all going to line up and make you perform an abortion doctor conscience. Just like some kind of super villain I am. Puuuuleeeze.)

These merchants of hate and hypocracy

Now, having just said all that, this just came in off the AP wire US to sign UN gay rights declaration

The Obama administration will endorse a U.N. declaration calling for the worldwide decriminalization of homosexuality that then-President George W. Bush had refused to sign, The Associated Press has learned.
U.S. officials said Tuesday they had notified the declaration’s French sponsors that the administration wants to be added as a supporter. The Bush administration was criticized in December when it was the only western government that refused to sign on.
The move was made after an interagency review of the Bush administration’s position on the nonbinding document, which was signed by all 27 European Union members as well as Japan, Australia, Mexico and three dozen other countries, the officials said.

An unnamed source (Who wished to remain anonymous as Congress had not been fully informed at press time) stated

“The United States is an outspoken defender of human rights and critic of human rights abuses around the world…As such, we join with the other supporters of this statement and we will continue to remind countries of the importance of respecting the human rights of all people in all appropriate international fora,” the official said.
The official then added that there was concern regarding “violence and human rights abuses against gay, lesbian, transsexual and bisexual individuals.”**
The official also said that zie was “troubled by the criminalization of sexual orientation in many countries….In the words of the United States Supreme Court, the right to be free from criminalization on the basis of sexual orientation ‘has been accepted as an integral part of human freedom’.”
Now how’s THAT for a turn around? Factor in the Comintern-like “medical” Christian groups gathering at the White House and you’ll get whiplash.
Of course, over 70 members of the UN are still in the frelling dark ages – most notably members of the Arabic community and – of course – countries where the Vatican still holds sway. And social conservatives trapped in the past overseas – just like they do here – continue to make stupid and uninformed comparisons to incest and pedophillia…because you know what? Social conservatives are all pushing the same cart of horseshit, regardless of which religion is hauling the cart.

* I have to say, I have more respect for the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement and I think they’re a bunch of looniesth

** I am just amazed he actually said transsexual.
