BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (Catholic Online) - President Obama delivered a speech that promoted the homosexual equivalency movement to Russia. The speech comes at a time of renewed tensions between the USA and Russia over the latter's annexation of Crimea.

Obama used the language of the movement to express his feelings on the topic. 

Pray for peace, light a candle now!

"We believe in human dignity - that every person is created equal, no matter who you are, or what you look like, or who you love, or where you come from," Obama said. He became more explicit after that, saying "Instead of targeting our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters, we can use our laws to protect their rights," he said. "Instead of defining ourselves in opposition to others, we can affirm the aspirations that we hold in common. That's what will make America strong. That's what will make Europe strong. That's what makes us who we are."

The comments were directed at Russia which has recently cracked down on overt and public homosexual displays that are intended to undermine traditional marriage and sexuality. However, Russia, like many other countries, has little appreciation for the shock tactics of the homosexual equivalency movement.

Instead, public sexuality and overt displays of affection are frowned upon in Russia, especially in front of children. Russia has a law designed to protect the exposure of children to homosexual provocation. The law is, in essence, a public decency law, but it has been villainized in the United States where the homosexual equivalency movement has finally forced its way into mainstream acceptance.

The comments were delivered a day before Obama was to meet with Pope Francis. Pope Francis has called on Catholics to refrain from judging one another, but he also affirmed the Church's resistance to all sin, including homosexual activity.

No matter what laws are passed or tossed out, no matter what speeches anyone gives, nobody can change the Natural Law, written by God on every human heart and in the very fabric of nature.
