Obama's DOJ demands outspoken approval of homosexuality

“The attacks on freedom of thought start with language. Those who do not resign themselves to accept ‘homophilia’ … are charged with ‘homophobia’.”Cardinal Giacomo Biffi

Eye of Obama
Writing for Townhall.com, May 20, 2013, Matt Barber brings to our attention an internal document of the Department of Justice (DOJ), which reeks of the thought tyranny of George Orwell’s prescient Nineteen Eighty Four.
Barber is a constitutional law attorney, the Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action, and the Associate Dean and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Law at Liberty University School of law.

DOJ PrideThe DOJ document, titled “LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers,” was created by DOJ Pride, the Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Employees of the U.S. Department of Justice and Their Allies.

The document, emailed to DOJ managers in advance of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month, was leaked to the Liberty Counsel by whistleblowers within the DOJ.
As Barber notes, “The document is chilling. It’s riddled with directives that grossly violate – prima facie –employees’ First Amendment [right of freedom of speech] liberties.”
The document “LGBT Inclusion at Work” provides a litany of Do’s and Don’ts to DOJ managers, such as the following relatively benign instructions:

  • Do use inclusive words like “partner,” “significant other” or “spouse” rather than gender-specific terms like “husband” and “wife.”
  • Do speak up against derogatory jokes or comments when you hear them.
  • Do use a transgender person’s chosen name and the pronoun that is consistent with the person’s self-identified gender.
  • Don’t assume all employees are (or a particular employee is) heterosexual.
  • Don’t use words and phrases like “gay lifestyle,” “sexual preference,” or “tranny” that are considered by many as offensive.

In all, there are 19 Do’s and 5 Don’ts, among them are some that are far from benign but are downright sinister, reeking of Thought Police. They include:

  • Do assume that LGBT employees and their allies are listening to what you’re saying (whether in a meeting or around the proverbial water cooler) and will read what you’re writing (whether in a casual email or in a formal document), and make sure the language you use is inclusive and respectful.
  • Do “Attend LGBT events sponsored by DOJ Pride and/or the Department, and invite (but don’t require) others to join you.”
  • Do “Display a symbol in your office (DOJ Pride sticker, copy of this brochure, etc.) indicating that it is a ‘safe space.'”
  • Concerning how to respond if an employee comes out to you, the DOJ document states: “Don’t judge or remain silent. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval.”

In other words, the only acceptable behavior toward lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders is no longer just tolerance or acceptance, they now demand OUTSPOKEN (verbalized) APPROVAL.
As Barber, an attorney, observes:

That’s a threat. And not even a subtle one.

Got it? For Christians and other morals-minded federal employees, it’s no longer enough to just shut up and […] live your life in silent recognition of biblical principles (which, by itself, is unlawful constraint). When it comes to mandatory celebration of homosexual and cross-dressing behaviors, “silence will be interpreted as disapproval.”

This lawless administration is now bullying federal employees – against their will – to affirm sexual behaviors that every major world religion, thousands of years of history and uncompromising human biology reject.

Somewhere, right now, George Orwell is smiling. […]

Is this the DOJ or the KGB? “[A]ssume that LGBT employees are listening …”? And what are “LGBT allies”? If you disagree with the homosexual activist political agenda, does that make you the enemy?

Yes, in any workplace, language should remain professional, but who defines what’s “inclusive”? Who decides what’s “respectful”? If asked about “LGBT issues,” for instance, can a Christian employee answer honestly: “I believe the Bible. I believe that God designed sex to be shared between husband and wife within the bonds of marriage”? Or is that grounds for termination?

[…] Are you kidding? Does this administration really think it’s legal to induce managers to “attend LGBT events,” or to “display pride stickers” against their will? That’s compulsory expression. That’s viewpoint discrimination.

That’s unconstitutional.

[…] This “DOJ Pride” directive is but the latest example of the “progressive” climate of fear and intimidation this radical Obama regime has created for Christians, conservatives and other values-oriented folks, both within and without the workplace.

  1. Reblogged this on PUMABydesign001's Blog and commented:
    The Thought Police, the PC Police and their freaking bff’s infringing upon the liberties of everyone else. Very much like the IRS infringing upon the liberties of Americans and Lois Lerner invoking the fifth amendment.

     
  2. Join the March on the capitol July 4th. You do NOT have to come armed. You are welcome to come and witness and record the event. It is Not only about the second amendment rights, it’s about all of them. Stand now and be counted. Christians need to be God’s Warriors. If this is not evil then I don’t know what would be. All evil needs to win is for good men to do nothing.

     
  3. This counts as the “shock-of-the-day” from Washington.

     
  4. People of faith and morals: I recommend reading a book called “They Fired The First Shot 2012” by A Friend of Medjugorje. It offers a clear, difinitive plan of action for taking this country back from the Godless, lawless regime.

     
  5. Great info, Doctor Eowyn! You’re a better source for info than any newspaper or network show in the country!
    Grace, thanks for the book recommendation!

     
  6. Modern America is a Sexually Transmitted Disease!

     
  7. It’s time to put these Liberals back in line, like the rest of us have to stand! 1% of this population will tell me NOTHING! Semper Fi.

     
  8. This is beyond disturbing. This is the first I’ve heard of it. The entire DOJ and WH administrations need to GO!

     
  9. Wow! Thanks so very much for this post. We wouldn’t know what’s going on in the House of Satan if it weren’t for these posts, Dr. Eo. I do believe the “fun” is just beginning, too. We have no idea how many bodies are buried in the back of the Dark House. And – how many more they plan to plant there!! As for freedom of speech, it’s gone. Just a hint that you don’t agree with some hairbrained idea and you are shut down. If you don’t agree that homorsexuality is gay and the next best thing to a BTL, you are definitely gone!

    The Dangers of the Last Days
    3 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

     
  10. Don’t know if Orwell would be laughing… from a BBC docudrama but his words:

     
  11. a lot of us older catfish tried to tell the younger fish not to vote for barry!but they did anyway.now we all suffer from all this nonsense.

     
  12. I just belatedly saw this news in Liberty Counsel’s RSS feed. Absolutely incorrigible. Gid bless the whistleblowers!
    Being a govt employee is no place to be these days. Nathaniel Kapner frequently reports on what’s going on at the ghastly DHS. And remember from back in Feb. at the USDA how employees attending “Sensitivity Training” were filmed pounding on tables & chanting, “The Pilgrims were Aliens!” What a freak show we are witnessing here in the USSA!

  13. Try to implement those policies in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Indonesia…
