The Return of the Homosexual Imperialists
It’s one thing to defend President Trump against false witness by the magazine Christianity Today. It’s another matter to rationalize or excuse how certain Trump officials are using the United Nations and the State Department to attack Christian nations.
The controversial event occurred just a few days before Christmas, when Trump’s U.S. Ambassador to Germany, longtime homosexual activist Richard Grenell, went to the United Nations to promote what he called a global initiative to force all U.N. members to approve homosexual conduct. He was joined in this demand by Trump’s U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Kelly Craft, who lectured the 69 countries which have laws making homosexuality illegal. She told them that “human dignity” requires that every country on the face of the earth embrace the practice of homosexuality.
This is the kind of homosexual imperialism that evangelical Christians objected to from the Obama Administration. Christians in foreign countries saw the attack as unwarranted interference in their internal affairs and subversion of Biblical values.
Clean House at the United Nations
Unless corrective action is taken quickly, the next move by major Soros-supported groups such as the Council for Global Equality and OutRight Action International will be to have the U.N. declare homosexual activity an international human right.
Such a move would put Trump on the spot. His supporters like what he has done in the areas of economics, anti-abortion policy, and national defense. But many of these same people do not want the government to approve homosexual conduct.
Damage to America’s standing in the world—as a country that respects the sovereignty of nations—has already been done. But if Trump is pressured to embrace a global “right” to homosexuality, it could not only further undermine his support among conservative Christians but turn out to be a moral catastrophe for America and the world.
