A July 15 Washington Times editorial titled "Obama's homosexual-Muslim conflict" called Muslims and homosexuals "radical groups" and claimed the Obama administration claimed "might have to decide" which group "it's most important to pander [to]: homosexuals or Muslims." The editorial also put the word "marriage" in scare quotes when discussing gay marriage. From the Washington Times:
"Human rights are gay rights," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clintonsaid recently, "and gay rights are human rights, once and for all." That's a touchy-feely liberal talking point, but don't tell it to the Muslims. Eventually, the Obama administration might have to decide to which radical group it's most important to pander: homosexuals or Muslims. There is some friction between these two Obama constituencies.
So, despite widespread opposition to homosexual "marriage" here at home, the U.S. government is pressuring foreign governments to offically recognize homosexual unions abroad. The main pushback is coming from the Muslim world, where "alternative lifestyle" is just another way of saying blasphemy.
