By Junior Mayema,
The war against LGBT people in the United States and around the world is just about to start as the USA Supreme Court want to settle this issue and probably grant samesex marriage the legal recognition that it always deserves in a world that continue to crack down on the right to life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness of LGBT people as any other human beings living under the sun with fundamental human rights enshrined in the universal declaration of human rights.
- All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
This is beyond words how the USA republican party continue to lag behind the american people when it is comes to equality and the principle of non-discrimination and non-violence.
We really don’t the motivation behind the reason why USA republicans and the American Family association want to visit Israel, that is why religious freedom to discriminate bills are extremely dangerous and we must navigate all the options possible to stop them from become laws but this is what has been reported so far :
The Southern Poverty Law Center, an American civil rights group based in Montgomery, Alabama, has reached out to Havana, the Israeli branch of the organization that marks IDAHO (International Day Against Homophobia) to inform that several members of the Republican National Committee (RNC) are scheduled to visit Israel from January 31 to February 8. The all-expenses-paid trip is sponsored the American Family Association (AFA), an anti-LGBT hate group.
“In response, we have sent letters to the Republican National Committee members urging them not to attend,” writes SPLC Campaign Coordinator Stephen Piggott, who signed the letter. “We are also reaching out to LGBT groups in Israel to inform them about the trip and urge groups to respond.”
The letter also lists a few examples of the racist statements made by AFA staffers and leadership:
“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews.”
“African Americans “rut like rabbits” and “women have no place in politics or the military.”
“Hispanics are “socialists by nature” and come to the United States to “plunder” our country.”
“We are a Christian nation, and not a Jewish or Muslim one.”
But it looks like the AFA has also being spreading its views to countries outside of the US. A couple of years ago, Bryan Fischer, the public face of the group, came out in favor of Uganda‘s anti-homosexuality law. Fischer took to Twitter praising Uganda falsely, suggesting Uganda had just made homosexuality illegal while in fact, homosexuality has been illegal since British 19th century colonial rule.
“Homosexuality is now against the law in Uganda, just as it was for 200 years in the US. It can be done,” Fischer wrote.
Chairman of Havana in Israel, Yadin Sapir, has commented on the arrival of the group sponsored by the AFA: “It looks like being defeated in the US makes them look for other markets and partners for their dark and rotten views of the world.”
And they are already waged the war or rebellion against the Highest Court of the Land and the Constitution for restoring the right to pursuit happen of LGBT people that includes the right to be able to get married is are true articles that shows just what they deadly agenda is :
Ben Carson, the likely Republican presidential candidate who believes that the gay rights movement is part of a communist conspiracy to bring about the New World Order, wants Congress to intervene in court cases involving marriage equality, including the upcoming cases before the Supreme Court.
Speaking Tuesday with Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace, Carson said that Congress should “reprimand or remove” federal judges who issue “unconstitutional” rulings striking down state bans on same-sex marriage.
What the president and what the Supreme Court need to reiterate is that the states have a mechanism whereby they can determine the will of the people, it’s called ballot referendum. It has been done multiple times already, 32 states have indicated that marriage is between a man and a woman, and a few judges have come and overturned that. That, as far as I’m concerned, is unconstitutional, and Congress actually has oversight of all what they call the inferior courts, everything below the Supreme Court, and that’s where those overturns have come. And when judges do not carry out their duties in an appropriate way, our Congress actually has the right to reprimand or remove them.
After Deace alleged that a Supreme Court victory for marriage equality advocates would undermine freedom and lead to the “persecution of the church” and “open season on Christians,” Carson said Congress should intercede if the Supreme Court deems same-sex marriage bans unconstitutional.
“We certainly cannot give up if, in fact, that turns out to be the case because we do still have the Congressional mechanism,” Carson said. “And the key here in our country, values and principles cannot be drummed out of us. They’re going to try and the only way we maintain a country with values and principles is we have to be brave enough to stand up for what we believe.”
And here is the second one :
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee spent some time talking with conservative radio host and law professor Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday, peddling his misguided opinion on exactly how the law works in the United States.
The 59-year old Republican is also peddling his latest book, God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy, and his been making the talk show rounds lately. On Monday he sat down with Jon Stewart to push his theory that there’s a “real clash of cultures” between people who live “in the bubbles of New York, Washington, and Hollywood, versus the people who live in the land of the bubbas.”
But Tuesday a more serious Huckabee told Hewitt he is “angry” about the way states and governors are just bowing down to the U.S. Supreme Court on the issue of same-sex marriage.
“If the federal Supreme Court rules that same sex marriage is protected under the 14th Amendment, you still have to have Congress and the President act to agree with it, because one branch of government does not overrule the other two. This idea that a judge makes a ruling on Friday afternoon, and Saturday morning same sex marriage licenses are being given out, that’s utter nonsense, because there’s not been any agreement with the other two branches of government,” Huckabee said, clearly not understanding how the law actually works.
“One thing I am angry about, though, Hugh,” Huckabee continued, “is this notion of judicial supremacy, where if the courts make a decision, I hear governors and even some aspirants to the presidency say well, that’s settled, and it’s the law of the land. No, it isn’t the law of the land. Constitutionally, the courts cannot make a law. They can interpret one. And then the legislature has to create enabling legislation, and the executive has to sign it, and has to enforce it.”
Hewitt, a law professor at the same university where NOM Chairman John Eastman teaches, later reminded Huckabee of the Supremacy Clause.
But the courts, however, can and do have the authority to bar lawmakers and executives, from the president to governors, on down, from enforcing laws, as they have done dozens of times in same-sex marriage cases. And in the absence of a ban, most conservatives would actually argue that something is legal.
Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, also told Hewitt that when it comes to same-sex marriage, “there does come a point at which I think we have to take a stand. I may be lonely, I may be the only one, but I’m going to stand absolutely faithful to the issue of marriage not because it’s a politically expedient thing to do, because it isn’t. I’m going to do it because I believe it is the right position, it’s the Biblical position, it’s the historical position.”
Here are some related news on all the nasty things that America conservative is up to and France is already suing FOX news for hate speech :

MAYOR OF PARIS ANNOUNCES PLANS TO SUE FOX NEWS: VIDEO
Between giving bigot Bill Donohue a platform to spout his hatred and glibly comparing a fight for LGBT rights to the abominable attack on Charlie Hebdo, Fox News has done anything but handle political discussion around Paris, France with the objective professionalism one would expect from a station that dares call itself a “news” source. In fact, their coverage has reached such an offensive point that Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has announced plans to sue the media giant.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour broke the news over Twitter:

And Hidalgo further expressed her disdain to her followers:
Je suis bien sûr choquée par la bêtise stigmatisante de Fox News : @BilldeBlasio et moi irons d’ailleurs dans le 19e cet après-midi
— Anne Hidalgo (@Anne_Hidalgo) January 20, 2015
Which roughly translates as: “I am of course shocked at the stigmatizing stupidity of Fox News. Bill DeBlasio and I will be at the 19th [District] this afternoon.”
