The Patriot Post® · Obama the Rainbow Warrior

By Nate Jackson ·

“On May 17, Americans and people around the world mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia by reaffirming the dignity and inherent worth of all people, regardless of who they love or their gender identity,” Barack Obama proclaimed in a White House statement. There was not a companion statement from anywhere in the Muslim world.

“[T]here is much work to be done to combat homophobia and transphobia,” Obama said, and he’s certainly waging that combat — mandating school bathroom polices, suing North Carolina, social engineering the military, lighting up the White House in rainbow colors to celebrate same-sex marriage, etc.

In another recent example of Obama’s agenda, he appointed a man who identifies as a woman to his Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. That man, former husband and father of three, now goes by the name Barbara Satin. Let’s just say we find his surname particularly … interesting in the context of a faith-based organization. “Given the current political climate,” Satin said in a statement, “I believe it’s important that a voice of faith representing the transgender and gender non-conforming community … be present and heard in these vital conversations.” This miniscule group suffering from gender disorientation pathology has a far outsized voice.

Often left not only unheard but shamed or silenced are the views of doctors like Paul McHugh of Johns Hopkins, who says simply, “Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men.” Such scientific truth is considered “transphobic” by this administration.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the Senate confirmed Obama’s Army secretary, Eric Fanning, who is the first homosexual leader of any U.S. military service — just four short years after Obama ordered military “gay pride” celebrations.

On a final note of what we consider to be related news, a new study from Emory University concludes, “HIV infection is hyperendemic among MSM [men who have sex with men] in many areas of the United States, particularly in the South.” Indeed, in some cities, as many as four in 10 homosexual men have HIV, a rate that far outstrips their straight counterparts. Is it “homophobic” to point that out? You certainly won’t hear it from any Obama council.
