“When I am President …”– Hilary Clinton Promises Pro-homosexual Administration
By Peter J. Smith
NEW YORK, June 4, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – An era of aggressive homosexualist policies is the future for the United States, promises Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, brashly saying when, not if, she becomes President in 2009.
Hillary Clinton, former First Lady and junior Senator from New York, released a statement for “Gay and Lesbian Pride Month” in which she told homosexual activists that the victories for the homosexual agenda obtained by Congressional Democrats and others in the past year are only shades of things to come.
Among these are the demise of the Federal Marriage Amendment, which she called “divisive and discriminatory,” the implementation of civil unions legislation in New Jersey and New Hampshire, and the imminent passage of hate crimes legislation, which President Bush has promised to veto, out of concerns for its implications for religious liberty.
"I’m running for president to replace the divisive leadership of the past six years,” said the former First Lady and junior Senator from New York. “America deserves a president who appeals to the best in each of us, not the worst; a president who values and respects all Americans, gay and straight; a president who treats all Americans equally no matter who they are or who [sic] they love.”
“For six long years, the Bush Administration has only seen the families that matter to them. It’s been a government of the few, by the few, and for the few,” Clinton continued.
“But when I take office in January 2009, we’ll finally be able to define success by more than the bigotry we stopped and the bad decisions we prevented. America will finally have a president who moves this country forward.”
“She is calling anyone, specifically the President, but anyone else like the President who doesn’t embrace her brand of moral relativism [a bigot],” said Matt Barber, Concerned Women for America’s Policy Director for Cultural Issues to LifeSiteNews.com.
“If the dynamics were such that we had Hillary Clinton in the oval office and a liberal controlled congress then I think there is no doubt … that she will essentially remove any barrier to protection between first amendment freedoms and the radical homosexual agenda.”
Clinton promised a broad expansion of federal hate crimes laws, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), and the end of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the military.
Barber explained ENDA and the hate crimes legislation are imperatives of the homosexual agenda that “set the table for religious persecution and puts us on a slippery slope to silence any opposition to homosexual lifestyle that is rooted in sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Clinton has positioned herself as the de facto leader of homosexual activists in the United States when she told the homosexual activist group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), “I am proud to stand by your side” and spoke enthusiastically of the “agenda we are pursuing.”
