U.S. Embassy / U.S. Taxes Sponsor Gay Film Festival in Bulgaria
"The U.S. Embassy joins the British, German, French, and Swiss Embassies in announcing the start of the Sofia Pride International Film Series in honor of Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, which is celebrated each year in June. The series features one movie selected by each of the five sponsoring embassies, and aims to promote acceptance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) rights in Bulgaria by examining the different issues and challenges which members of the LGBT community face in today’s world. All films will include Bulgarian subtitles."
This article caught my attention for two reasons, both having to do with my son who is career Air Force. Pursuing endeavors that take advantage of his masters degree in International Relations, he was recently on duty with the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria for five weeks. While there, one of the first persons to greet him thanked him profusely for the contributions from the American George Soros. Say what?? Yes, that is what I said. My son hardly knew how to react but to say he had no knowledge of George Soros' contributions to Bulgaria. Turns out Mr. Soros is doing to Bulgaria the same thing he has done to most other countries in which he involves himself, using his money to prop up the supposed disenfranchised in order to shake up the "status quo" in said country. In this case, Soros is propping up some group of gypsies, called the ROMA movement. (My understanding, however limited, is that gypsies are happy being gypsies and have no interest in being mainstreamed into other cultures. The few I have known about lived quite deliberately separate and apart from the rest of the society in the town in which I grew up.) Then...during the last days he was there, my son also related something about how the U.S. Embassy was involved in helping the inclusiveness of gays into the Bulgarian society.
Second reason: Now that he is back in the U.S. my son has recently been involved in officer training regarding the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." This "training" involved a Catholic priest, a former career officer, a gay officer, and someone else....I don't remember who. The four speakers to the group gave an afternoon of justification and apologetics for the supposed "rights of gays" and how the military can and will impose the gay lifestyle into the regular traditions of the Air Force. The gist was how wonderful it is all going to be for everyone. (Things that make you go hmmmmm)
I will not convey to you my son's opinions on all of this. His opinions are his own and shall remain so.
But I will give you my opinion. The idea that the U.S. State Department is using American taxpayers' dollars to encourage and prop up the gay / homosexual lifestyle in any country is a travesty, here or abroad. What on earth is the point of that? The left started out this conversation on gays a few years ago saying we all needed to be tolerant. So fine...we are all tolerant. Then it became not just tolerance, but advocacy. There is a difference between tolerance and advocacy. Now it is outright promotion of everything homosexual or bisexual or trans-sexual or any variation of gender issue you can think of being proselytized in our elementary schools. Kindergartners being taught there are more than two genders"
And now we find out this: The percentage of gays in our society is very much lower than has previously been reported by the media and by university professors ...and by our government agencies. The actual percentage is more like 1.7 percent, as opposed to the inflated figures from the Kinsey report decades ago. From Traditional Values.org Huffington Post article
From a Gary Gates, who is a demographer-in-residence at the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy, a think tank based at the University of California, Los Angeles, the article states: "Gates' best estimate, derived from five studies that have asked subjects about their sexual orientation, is that the nation has about 4 million adults who identify as being gay or lesbian, representing 1.7 percent of the 18-and-over population."
I wonder how much of our taxes are being spent to promote gay marriage in all of the 50 states? How much of our money is being spent in courts on this issue. How much of our money is being spent in our schools to promote "gayness." And all because less than two percent of our population has a bent for, let's say, unusual practices?? And remember, we have been mostly tolerant, leaving well enough alone. (I take no credit for encouraging the abuse of people no matter what their sexual preferences are.)
It is the leftists' game...tear down traditional values and replace them with chaotic nonsense. This works to tear down the family, tear down what is thought of as normal behavior, and cause the society to break into incompatible factions. But that is the plan. That is the "Open Society" of Mr. Soros' creation.
So how many ways can they spend our taxes to wreak havoc and take American down?? Keep on counting....
