Years of government actions have shown that it is now official U.S. policy to suppress its own culture and beliefs in order to avoid offending Muslims even as it will force the entire world to accept sodomy regardless of who it offends or what consequences result from it.
The Army issued an official press release in late June with the title, “Soldiers’ Guide to Ramadan.” This press release glowingly explained how U.S. soldiers need to be sensitive of Muslims during “the holy month of Ramadan.” It even went as far as to evangelize for Islam:
At the end of the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims will have a feast called eid Al-Fitr which symbolizes the breaking of the fast.
“You should attempt to celebrate the breaking of the fast meal with them at the end of Ramadan,” said Mateer. “This is a time of celebration.”
Mateer is Major Kevin Mateer, a U.S. Army chaplain.
This government advice on how to defer to Muslims is only the latest example of the U.S. officially submitting its own beliefs and culture to Islam.
The U.S. had Bibles burned in Afghanistan in 2009 to avoid offending Afghans. At the same time, when U.S. troops burned Qurans that captured jihadists were using to pass messages to one another, U.S. military leaders profusely apologized, launched an investigation and even threatened to punish the troops that burned them.
That same year then Army Chief of Staff General George Casey said of Nidal Hassan’s jihadist attack on Fort Hood troops, “Our diversity not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” Apparently the top Army officer thought the murdered soldiers were less important than the sensitivities of Muslims.
No less than the State Department, then Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and then General David Petraeus condemned American pastor Terry Jones—a civilian—when he announced he would burn Qurans in 2010. Some of these government officials even directly contacted Jones.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff denounced an official Department of Defense course in 2012 after someone accused it of being “Islamophobic.” The DOD ordered an investigation and ultimately ended the career of Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley after he was deemed the “guilty” party.
Later in 2012, the U.S. government denounced the video Innocence of Muslims after it became widely known following the attack on the U.S. installation in Benghazi. The Obama regime even arrested the maker of the video on trumped-up parole violation charges and officially apologized for it.
On top of all these things, the U.S. has embraced a strategy of backing “legitimate Islamists” across the globe, whether they are “rebel forces” fighting established national governments in Libya and Syria, or jihadists who seized the reins of power in places such as Egypt.
So deferring to Islam is nothing new for the United States and it has been going on for so long that it now must be acknowledged as official policy.
At the same time, the U.S. will not defer to Islam or other religions or cultures when it comes to sodomy. In fact, official U.S. policy is that sodomy will be forced on the world.
Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent announcement that foreign governments must accept sodomy is only the latest step in the U.S. religiously spreading it throughout the world:
Responding to a question by a GLIFAA member about a large number of countries that currently do not issue visas to same-sex partners, Kerry said, “we are instructing embassies to inform governments locally that this is our policy and that they need to honor our policy. It’s that simple.”
President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton all hold the same views as Kerry. A group of Democratic senators has even introduced a bill that, if passed, would require the U.S. government to proselytize sodomy across the globe—including with the armed forces:
Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts and 24 Democratic senators want to make this policy a part of U.S. law.
In legislation introduced last Friday, LGBT rights would become an official foreign policy priority of the United States and would include US training of “professional foreign military.”
Just as it is clear that official U.S. policy will submit its own culture and beliefs to Islam in order to placate Muslims, it is now clear that it is official U.S. policy to force sodomy on the world regardless of the costs.
There is no significant opposition to the positions of deferring to Islam and requiring the entire world to accept sodomy. Even Republicans and conservatives aren’t really opposing them, with an increasing number of Republicans and conservatives actually supporting the evangelization of sodomy. So expect these positions to become more prominent in all aspects of U.S. government and governmental action. And expect resistance to these positions to be met with increasing severity from the U.S. government.
