Obama Lectures Kenya that Sexual Perversion is Just Like Skin Color

Our President practices imperialism on behalf of sexual perversion, telling Kenya to change its laws.

CNN was blunt about what President Obama did: “Obama lectures Kenyan president on gay rights.”

President Barack Obama on Saturday lectured Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta about his country’s gay rights record.

“When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode,” Obama said at a joint press conference with the Kenyan leader in Nairobi. “And bad things happen.”

Under Kenyan law, sexual activity between men is illegal and punishable with a maximum imprisonment of 14 years. Many Kenyan leaders had encouraged Obama not to discuss gay rights on his first trip to the country as President.

But Obama equated legalized discrimination of gays to legalized racism in America.

“And when a government gets in a habit of people treating people differently, those habits can spread,” Obama continued. “As an African-American, I am painfully aware of what happens when people are treated differently under the law.”

There are several different deceptions going on here. First, whether or not homosexuality should be a crime with a civil penalty attached to it (I think ideally it should be, if you want to know), that is not what Barack Obama means by “treating people differently.” He means that employers ought to be sued if they don’t want to hire open homosexuals in their workplace. He means that people with rooms to rent must be punished if they don’t want to rent to homosexuals. He means that cake bakers and photographers should be punished if they don’t want to participate in a same sex “marriage.” He means that Christian schools should be required to hire practicing homosexuals.

That is the meaning of “gay rights” today.

Secondly, Obama claims that homosexual practice does not do anyone harm. But that completely begs the question as to whether homosexual practice damages the people who participate in it. If people are supposed to be changed by a life-time union with a person of the opposite sex, then being derailed exclusively into forms of sexual masturbation with people of the same sex twists and warps a person’s life. Obama pretends to be arguing that homosexual activity is okay because it is harmless, but he is assuming it is harmless because he is sure it is okay.

At the very least, Obama has done zero to persuade anyone that Kenyan law is wrong.

Third, Obama equates a desire for homosexual experiences with being born with dark skin. Liberals have repeatedly admitted that this comparison is false and that homosexual activity is not biologically inherited (duh!) or genetically caused. Barack Obama is pawning off junk science in order to make his case.

The Kenyans are wise to refuse to listen to Americans who tell them to embrace homosexual practice as a lifestyle choice that is just as valid as heterosexual marriage and having children.
