Ambassador Carlos Moreno says he ain’t pushing the gay agenda

Carlos Moreno

Ambassador Moreno could not help but notice the welcome he received outside the residence of the Governor-General. To our knowledge he is the first arriving US Ambassador to ever been greeted with a protest. He seemed unfazed, but adamant that the US has no LGBT agenda, and he is not here to promote homosexuality. The primary criticism against Moreno has been a position he took on gay marriage in 2009, while he was a California Supreme Court Judge. But he told us today that his position was based on California law, and has nothing to do with the laws of Belize which are a different thing altogether.

 

Oscar Moreno, US Ambassador to Belize

“I can affirmatively state that from the perspective of the United States there is no LGBT agenda. I think what the mission of the United States is to promote human rights with respect to all groups…groups that are marginalized or not marginalized. So to say that there is any kind of homosexual or LGBT agenda I think is off the mark. The United States has its own Constitution and laws which I interpreted in the laws I saw fit with a fidelity to the laws as it applied in the United States. I would not presume to apply the law or take a position on any matters based upon Belizean law. That certainly is not my province. Nor would I ever comment on any pending litigation that may be ongoing in Belize. I’ll repeat and I cannot make it more clear – that the question of human rights and the freedom from violence and discrimination applies to all individuals irrespective of what their ethnic group is, background and so forth. I think that’s enough said on that particular topic.”

    Caleb’s new best friend has landed in Belize!!

    Guess this Ambassador is a real DIPLOMAT or in our local terms, ” a damn liad”!!! It is well documented that the Obama administration is pushing this LGBT crap down all our throats threatening to link foreign aid to this issue – “Vice President Joe Biden declared Tuesday that protecting gay rights is a defining mark of a civilized nation and must trump national cultures and social traditions. Biden told a gathering of U.S. and international gay rights advocates that President Barack Obama has directed that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women around the world” …. Where countries fail to move toward protections of LGBT people, he warned, “there is a price to pay for being inhumane.” (quoted from the Associated Press). Now, if this does not spell it out quite clear, I don’t know what does!!!!

    Is it just me, or is the USA really going to hell fast. Ever since Obama and his gay agenda hit the nation, everything seems to go wrong. Irag, Syria, their ambassador in Libya, schools shootings etc. is just a short list. Recently they punish a Uganda for their stance on the gay agenda. We may be next. No longer is the USA a shining city on a hill.
