Obama urges gay rights, ignores murder and discrimination against Christians


President Barack Obama has taken the opportunity while on a visit to his ancestral home of Kenya to urge the nation to progress on the matter of gays rights.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, Obama’s Kenyan counterpart replied to Obama’s call by stating: “There are some things that we must admit we don’t share. It’s very difficult for us to impose on people that which they themselves do not accept. This is why I say for Kenyans today the issue of gay rights is really a non-issue,” Mr Kenyatta said.800px-Uhuru_Kenyatta_with_Obamas_2014

President Kenyatta has real issues to deal with in Kenya, like the growth of Islamic backed terrorism in Africa and the kidnapping and slaughter of scores of Christians. Sadly, these matters don’t rank as highly for President Obama as lighting the White House up in rainbow colours. Nor do these issues rank high enough for President Obama to mention ‘Islam’ and ‘terrorism’ in the same sentence.

Intriguingly, President Obama appears to be unwilling to raise either gay rights or Islamic terrorism when he meets his Arab and Muslim counterparts, but ‘gay rights’ is his leading issue is the devoutly Christian nation of Kenya – a nation that has traditional sexual mores, but tends not to punish homosexuals by throwing them off buildings.

If President Obama’s trip tells us anything, it is that colonialism is alive and well. But colonialism isn’t a bad thing, so long as you’re imposing a progressive, leftist agenda on the ‘backwards’ people of the world.

Furthermore, if the purpose of colonialism is not to assist in the development of the lives of nations and real people, but to posture for a foreign constituency, then it is A-Okay too.
