Pakistan is not happy about a U.S. embassy-sponsored gay rights meeting, calling it second only to a military drone strike as an attack on Pakistan.
We do not concur, but we worry about our embassy's priorities. Is this worth breaking an alliance or spurring more terrorism? Is Pakistan our business on this issue?
America less than 20 years ago decriminalized homosexuality. Can we not allow cultures to evolve?
Via The Blaze/AP:
A group of conservative Islamic political and religious officials has condemned a meeting by the U.S. Embassy supporting gay rights in Pakistan as “cultural terrorism” against the country.
The group, which included the head of Pakistan’s largest Islamic party, Jamaat-e-Islami, claimed the meeting — the first of its kind held by the embassy — was the second most dangerous attack by the U.S. against Pakistan, following missiles fired from unmanned drones.
