Fr. Mario Alexis PortellaI recently logged onto the Voice of America (VOA) website—an American international broadcaster funded by the U.S. Congress—and saw an article entitled “LGBTQ Members Face Threats in Iraqi Kurdistan,” which discussed the plight of Iraq’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning or queer (LGBTQ) community in the country’s autonomous region of Kurdistan.

The segment included a video of an Iraqi who, as an LGBTQ activist, feared for his safety. Not that such individuals should have to undergo any type of persecution, yet the VOA article’s aim was not necessarily to magnify this in as much as it was to advocate the LGBTQ agenda—the sanctimonious recognition of same-sex unions, the right to biologically change one’s gender, and the like, as human rights.
