Biden ashamed? Gay Pride flag flies at US embassy in Vatican City, but not in some Muslim countries

The Lion has confirmed that the U.S. embassy in at least one Middle Eastern, majority Muslim country is not flying the “gay pride” flag in celebration of gay pride month.

The revelation comes…

The Lion has confirmed that the U.S. embassy in at least one Middle Eastern, majority Muslim country is not flying the “gay pride” flag in celebration of gay pride month.

The revelation comes amid criticism that the Biden administration is again flying the “gay pride” flag at the U.S. embassy at Vatican City, but has a different standard for Muslim countries, especially those in the Middle East.

Former intelligence officer Del Wilber sent an in-country source to the U.S. embassy in Amman, Jordan at the behest of The Lion.

That source confirmed to Wilber that “the embassy wasn’t apparently flying the pride flag in public view,” but did not provide a photo to The Lion of the flag staff out of an abundance of caution, not wanting authorities to misunderstand the nature of his visit to the embassy area.

Email inquiries to the U.S. embassies in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Iraq by The Lion asking if they were flying “gay pride” flags were not answered.

But an email to the U.S. State Department by The Lion asking the foreign policy agency to provide a comprehensive list of which embassies are flying gay pride flags this month was answered with curious non-responsive confirmation.

“America’s strength is found in its diversity. America is stronger, at home and around the world, when it is inclusive,” a State Department spokesman told The Lion, asking he not be named and that the statement be noted as “background.”  

“Recognizing that each country context is different, U.S. embassies and consulates develop individual plans to raise awareness of violence, human rights abuses, and discrimination targeting LGBTQI+ persons, including appropriate exterior displays,” the spokesman added. 

That plan apparently only includes flying the flag at a place that opposes the LGBTQ agenda by turning the other cheek, as the Vatican does, or in places where the general population shrugs or is under such tight control that they wouldn’t dare be offended – at least publicly.   

Last year, the news agency Reuters provided cover for the Biden flag-flying hypocrisy when critics challenged the administration for flying a gay pride flag at the Vatican, saying the administration wouldn’t do the same in “Middle East” countries. 

Reuters cited a pride flag flying at the U.S. embassy in Pristina, Kosovo, as proof the criticism of Biden was faulty. 

It should be noted that Kosovo is a southeastern European country, not a Middle East country.  

Reuters attempted to obfuscate the critics by substituting a majority Muslim country in Europe, which is a European Union partner, for a Middle East country.  

They also included the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as pride flag-flyer, a country which has a very tight hold on the public opinion.

For example, Freedom House, which reports on political and civil freedoms around the world said that after the U.S. brokered a peace agreement between the UAE and Israel under President Donald Trump that was bound to be unpopular with UAE citizens, the “government took steps to suppress public criticism of the move, including the imposition of a travel ban on a writer and the promotion of a mobile application that encourages residents to report illegal speech.” 

The Catholic Church, like most orthodox Christians, holds that homosexuality is a sin, against the laws of God, as do Muslim countries.  

The Vatican flag display comes as Catholic groups in the U.S. have swelled in their condemnation of anti-Catholic and anti-Christian bigotry.

Christians have boycotted Target over its gay pride clothing collection and books marketed to kids, which includes a clothing designer who worships Satan.  

Christians are also protesting against the Major League Baseball’s Dodgers’ gay pride night that is presenting a humanitarian award to drag queens called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,  men who mock the Catholic Church by wearing nun garb in lewd parody.  

While the Vatican turns its cheek, other Catholics are acting as Jesus confronting the money-changers in the Temple. 

“This is a slap in the face of every Catholic,” said CatholicVote President Brian Burch, who vowed to advertise against the baseball team. “We’re raising $1 million as fast as we can, and we will pummel this decision in advertising that the Dodgers can’t ignore.” 

“Every advertiser, every season ticket holder, every charity, every fan must speak out against the Dodgers’ decision to promote anti-Catholic hate,” Burch added. “Why does ‘pride’ have to include honoring the most grotesque and scandalous anti-Catholic perverts?” 

An email to the White House by the Lion asking for comment was not answered by the time of publication.
