United Nations: U.S. Aligned With Iran in Anti-Gay Vote
Rice Must Explain Repressive UN Ban on LGBT Rights Groups

(Washington, D.C., January 25, 2006) - In a reversal of policy, the United States on Monday backed an Iranian initiative to deny United Nations consultative status to organizations working to protect the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. In a letter to Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, a coalition of 39 organizations, led by the Human Rights Campaign, Human Rights Watch, the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, called for an explanation of the vote which aligned the United States with governments that have long repressed the rights of sexual minorities.

Obviously you're not objecting to being aligned with a Taliban-esque government.

You prefer to be with Iran, China, and the Sudan? Really?

If true, it may be perhaps a well played political strategy by this administration. The Gay & Lesbian groups now get all huffy and mad and latch onto their more attentive lobbied Dems, presuring them to speak out more about them during this run up to mid-term elections. Thus alienating the Dem party even more from voters. The same voters who voted down (2004 election) the many state ballot referendums on allowing Same Sex Marriages.


Rove? You out there?

The referendums that were defeated were in states that hate gays anyway, so don't act like it's a big victory for the homophobic agenda. And there's nothing you can do to convince me that the majority of Americans are so insecure in their own sexuality that they fear gays to the extent that they want to legislate them out of existence.

I think LGD is on the right track but in reverse. The Gay community is one group that this administration can not only marginalize without fear, since none of them would vote for them anyway, but when they do marginalize them it fires up their base of religous nuts who would legislate gays out of existence in a second if they could.
