Default US Embassy holds gay, lesbian ceremony in Islamabad

so this is how our tax dollars are being spent abroad ? to promote gayness amongst the muslim world ?
why are these morons poking the proverbial hornets nest ? are they just trying to assure that we'll have future "terrorist " attacks against us ? what's the point in opening this can of worms ?


Quote:
ISLAMABAD: The US Embassy has arranged the first ever gay, lesbians and transgender pride celebration ceremony in Islamabad and assured its participants that Washington would continue to support their cause here in Pakistan.

The US Embassy issued a press release on June 26 in which it made it public that Charge d’ Affaires Ambassador Richard Hoagland, and members of Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies (GLIFAA) hosted Islamabad Embassy’s first ever gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) Pride Celebration on June 26.
It further states that this gathering demonstrated continued US Embassy support for human rights, including GLBT rights, in Pakistan at a time when those rights are increasingly under attack from extremist elements throughout Pakistani society.
Over 75 people including mission officers, US military representatives, foreign diplomats, and leaders of Pakistani GLBT advocacy groups attended the ceremony. In formal remarks, the charge d’ affaires underscored President Obama’s May 31, 2011 GLBT Pride Proclamation: “We rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity”.
Addressing the Pakistani GLBT activists, the charge d’ affaires, while acknowledging that the struggle for GLBT rights in Pakistan is still beginning, said: “I want to be clear that the US Embassy is here to support you and stand by your side every step of the way”.
End.

Default Re: US Embassy holds gay, lesbian ceremony in Islamabad

I almost wouldn't mind if it were policy across the board. Did they do it in Riyadh? Did they do it in Cairo? Abu Dhabi? Or how about in the Vatican, or Bogotá, etc.? Of course not. The point here is to embarrass a client who recently embarrassed us. They were supposed to have taken the blame for supposedly withholding evidence about bin Laden, when it turned out in fact that they had been feeding the US info about him and that mansion all along. Just a guess, anyway. Who knows what other deficiencies in bootlicking they've demonstrated recently.
