(LifeSiteNews) – With LGBT culture now dominant in the West, Western countries are increasingly using their clout to advocate for the LGBT agenda in nations that have thus far rejected it. According to a report from C-Fam, for example, the Biden Administration is going further than any previous U.S. administration and pressing countries to adopt same-sex “marriage” as a matter of policy, most recently in Serbia. The Biden Administration’s global LGBT advocacy is well-documented, but calling on sovereign nations to change their laws – the U.S. also demanded that Japan and Korea “provide legal recognition of same-sex marriage” – is nothing short of revolutionary.
Unsurprisingly, these countries are feeling the pressure. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, has announced a bill to promote LGBT understanding to “showcase progress on the issue to his G-7 peers, with the country under mounting pressure.” According to Kyodo News: “A survey by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development shows Japan ranked 34th out of 35 countries in terms of LGBT inclusion legislation in 2019, down from 22nd in 1999. In a recent video compilation of messages, 15 diplomatic missions in Japan, including those of the United States, Europe and Australia, called on the Japanese government to take concrete action toward protecting LGBT rights ahead of the G-7 summit.”
Donald Trump has suggested a 6-week abortion ban is ''too harsh'', attacking Gov. Ron DeSantis for his bill protecting innocent human life after 6 weeks.
Obviously pro-lifers wish to protect all human life from conception with outright abortion bans.
SIGN: Donald Trump MUST support pro-life legislation
The former president said he is ''looking at all alternatives'' when asked if he would support such a 6-week ban, making this a crucial opportunity for pro-life voters to make their views known to him in no uncertain terms.
"He has to do what he has to do," Trump said about Gov. DeSantis' abortion bill. "If you look at what DeSantis did, a lot of people don't even know if he knew what he was doing. But he signed six weeks, and many people within the pro-life movement feel that that was too harsh."
Anyone truly in the pro-life movement thinking the ban is too harsh must mean it's too harsh on those babies less than 6-weeks who can still be murdered.
Mr. Trump's outlandish claim about anyone in the pro-life movement opposing the ban is doubtful to say the least, but there was more to follow in the interview.
When pressed on whether he thought the bill was ''too harsh'', Trump would not answer directly, instead saying: ''I'm looking at all alternatives. I'm looking at many alternatives. But I was able to get us to the table by terminating Roe v. Wade. That's the most important thing that's ever happened for the pro-life movement.''
The former president is correct in saying the overturning of Roe v. Wade was a monumental step for the pro-life movement, but it should only be the beginning of banning the killing of babies in the womb entirely.
Donald Trump's belief that even a 6-week abortion ban is extreme spells trouble for every citizen concerned about ending abortion, which is why we need you to take part in this urgent petition to him.
SIGN & SHARE: We must change Donald Trump's mind on abortion
Our true loyalty is to innocent human beings facing death, none more so than those in the womb, and any candidate who prevaricates about something so important to building a civilized society has to be corrected.
We urge all Republican candidates to advocate for a total ban on abortion, without any exceptions - not just at 6-week's gestation as an incremental measure.
SIGN & SHARE our petition urging Donald Trump to do the right thing.
Trump distances himself from 6-week abortion ban by DeSantis: 'Too harsh' - LifeSiteNews
Japan, a very nationalist country, has thus been bullied into making all of the right noises about the LGBT agenda – at the behest of the Anglosphere, which states in no uncertain terms that not legalizing same-sex “marriage” (which Japan has not) is “lagging behind” – by the cultural standards of the West, that is. The banner of globalization is the “pride” flag, and Japan feels at least compelled to pay lip service to this new ideology.
And then there’s NATO. As Noah Carl noted at Unherd earlier this week:
Nato is currently engaged in the most serious geopolitical conflict since the Vietnam War. You’d therefore expect it to have a laser-like focus on the matter at hand. But apparently not. On Wednesday, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg took time out of his busy schedule to record a video for “International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia”.
You can see where this is going. Almost every sentence in the one-and-a-half-minute speech sounds like it was crafted by an activist from Stonewall. “Nato’s strength is our diversity,” Stoltenberg explains, “so it is important that we reflect and celebrate the extraordinary diversity of our populations.” Should the organisation be “celebrating” any particular identities? There are plenty of groups doing that already; Nato’s job is meant to be security. “I value every member of the LGBTQ+ community,” Stoltenberg continues, “and I am proud to call myself your ally.” Is there any need for this? Can’t we just assume that Nato represents every member of the population, regardless of identity, until told otherwise?
No, we can’t – because as Carl also noted, not all Nato members are equally on board with the LGBT agenda. Statements like this are not intended to simply emphasize that Nato “represents every member of the population” – they are intended to send a message to NATO member states who need to be occasionally reminded that the alliance they are a part of also flies the “pride” flag (here’s a photo of the “pride” flag alongside other formal flags proudly posted by Belgium at Nato; in 2021, Nato hosted a conference on “LGBTQ+ perspectives in the workplace”).
Under the Biden administration, the United States has become an anti-Christian force in the world. The U.S. State Department has added same-sex “marriage” to the 2022 Human Rights Report for the first time in order to pressure other countries – many of which rely on the U.S. for aid of various types – into changing their laws. This report is widely read and is considered by many in diplomatic circles to be the definitive review of the human rights records of the countries listed. As C-Fam also noted, the report and its accompanying recommendations are produced by the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor – and this pressure is backed by their foreign aid programs.
Recently, the formerly conservative commentator David Frum demanded to know why so many on the Right had lost their enthusiasm for American’s geopolitical dominance. The answer is simple: The Biden Administration isn’t fighting for the Stars and Stripes abroad. They’re fighting for the rainbow.
