Defenders of the Family Protest Team Obama's "Gay Pride" Promotion

More than 120 pro-family and pro-life leaders from 11 countries signed a letter initiated by the World Congress of Families, protesting the U.S. Embassy's participation in the Prague "Gay Pride" parade on August 18.

The letter notes that the Obama administration has made promoting gay rights – including same-sex marriage – a foreign policy priority. If also observes the irony of those who complain ceaselessly about "cultural imperialism," trying to force the worldviews of the American left on societies with traditional values…

The letter continues: "Regarding 'gay rights,' those caught up in this lifestyle have the same rights as other citizens. This does not include the 'right' to force others to validate a lifestyle they find objectionable, for religious or other reasons. It also does not include the right of men to marry men and women to marry women. The foregoing pseudo-rights do not advance human freedom and dignity but debase them."

The letter supports Czech pro-family leaders who are outraged by this intrusion in their country's internal affairs.
