The homosexual Human Rights Campaign is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. The decision was unanimously reached by HRC’s 32-member board of directors.
The group praised President Obama for the progress made on the homosexual agenda during his administration, including homosexuals in the military and the imposition of homosexual marriage on the country through the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision.
The $50 million-a-year pressure group seems worried about the coming election. Even though the group claims substantial numbers of Republicans support the gay agenda: “the leading Republican candidates have threatened to halt progress as well as revoke, repeal, and overturn gains made during President Obama’s two terms.”
HRC President Chad Griffin warns that “All the progress we have made as a nation on LGBT equality — and all the progress we have yet to make — is at stake in November.” He says homosexuals “are at risk of being fired, evicted or denied services simply because of who they are.” Survey from homosexual groups, however, show they are one of the richest cohorts in the country. Indeed, HRC’s own research shows that not only are gays not in danger of being fired, an overwhelming number of Fortune 500 companies across all sectors are “gay friendly.”
So powerful is the gay lobby in the United States that they have in short order changed the mind of two Presidents of the United States, the US Military, and have the backing of most of the cultural, political, and societal gate-keepers. Christians now say they are the beleaguered group.
HRC is known for going after Christians who oppose the homosexual agenda.
Last year the group produced a report called “The Export of Hate” that attacked American Christians involved in social policy debates overseas. Included in the groups attacked were mainstream groups such as Alliance Defending Freedom and the National Organization for Marriage, the group that spearheaded 34 state-wide votes in favor of traditional marriage prior to the Federal Courts imposition of homosexual marriage.
Clinton is slated to accept the endorsement on January 24 in Des Moines.
