By Dave Boyer. A day after the Supreme Court granted victories to same-sex couples in the U.S., President Obama’s visit to Africa got off to a rough start when his call for tolerance of gays on the continent was rebuffed publicly by the president of Senegal, where homosexuality is a crime.

“People should be treated equally,” Mr. Obama said Thursday at a news conference in Dakar, Senegal, on the first full day of his three-nation tour of the continent.

He said that although Africans have a variety of religions and customs and “we have to respect the diversity of views” of people who personally oppose gay rights, the laws of African nations must grant all people equal protection, regardless of sexual orientation.

“I want the African people just to hear what I believe … when it comes to how the state treats people, how the law treats people, I believe that everybody has to be treated equally,” Mr. Obama said.

That view was promptly rejected by Senegal’s President Macky Sall, who was sharing the stage with Mr. Obama. Read more from this story HERE.

Nancy Pelosi: ‘Thank God’ for gay ‘marriage’ rulings

By Ben Johnson. Among those celebrating the two Supreme Court’s rulings handed down yesterday that favor the homosexual political agenda is former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who told Politico her first reaction was, “Thank God.”

Pelosi, who regularly identifies herself as a “devout” practicing Catholic, said the Deo gratias poured out of her heart the moment she heard that the High Court effectively overturned her home state’s Proposition 8 and invalidated a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) by a 5-4 margin in two cases.

“I was thinking when we were walking over here, ‘I’ll be devastated if it’s anything other than that’ for two reasons,” she said. “For what it means for the lives of people first and foremost, but secondly it’s clearly unconstitutional. I’m glad to hear that the court agrees.”

Another prominent figure who expressed gratitude that DOMA was repealed is the same president that turned the federal marriage bill into settled law for 17 years. President Bill Clinton, who signed DOMA without fanfare or a photo op in a late night ceremony in 1996, said, “By overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, the Court recognized that discrimination towards any group holds us all back in our efforts to form a more perfect union. ”

His wife, former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, joined his statement. During her tenure as Secretary of State, Hilary put the promotion of homosexuality at the heart of U.S. foreign policy, a tactic continued by her successor, John Kerry. Read more from this story HERE.

    Looks like our globe trotting ‘idiot-in-chief’, is stepping in it and on it over in his home country. How embarrassing.

    You can’t fix stupid or narcissistic arrogance.

    No religion, which is a religion of any sort, and not occultism, accepts sodomy as an acceptable life style. We have sodom and gomorrah to back up the entire problem. The more you tolerate sin, the more people commit evil without any fear. Sodomy is a sin which preys on the young and helpless, and also accounts for massive HIV problems, Venereal Diseases which have no cure, etc. Tolerance has only complicated the health issues at stake here. It is a communicable disease process, and if you wonder why there are so many problems with strains of bacteria which cannot be overcome with antibiotics, look at HIV, and over-abuse of antibiotics. “O” is a sodomite, so he tolerates his own sins.

    Obama wants to be King of the World. He wants all people to have same beliefs he has.

  • jandyreid

    Obama is completely insensitive to the beliefs of others and oblivious to the many differences in cultures around the world. This is evident in his gifts to foreign leaders and his complete disregard for foreign customs. He is a lout who says he believes in equality. His actions indicate that he thinks some people are more equal than others.

    Pelosi thanks God for homosexual marriage? She is ignorance personified.

    • bs7sden

      Pelosi, Is a ‘heathen’, amoral and out of touch with reality!
      She should simply be ignored. I believe the Catholic Church is planning to excommunicate her, finally!

  • Dot Pate

    Even Africa will not stoop to Obama’s family trashy morals.

  • vietnamvet1971

    O’Homosexual is a Disgrace to the USA and pleads with other leaders to accept the Homosexual Perversion of Wickedness and Sinful Lust of Flesh which most normal people know is an Abomination.

  • RonMar

    Obama is doing a fabulous job failing in Africa sharing his domestic policies and actions failures as a foreign policy and action and failure on the Obamas’ outrageously expensive family trip.

  • bs7sden

    Outstanding, It take the President of Senegal to call the ‘Fraud’ a radical LIB-RETARD! You think a few lefty moron Americans will wake up?
