    “Incredible.” “Brilliant.” “Extraordinary.” Those were the words used by a
    great many on Twitter and Facebook describing Hillary Clinton’s speech on
    LGBT rights in Geneva yesterday to the United Nations Human Rights Council
    and President Obama’s memorandum tying foreign aid to nations’ records on
    LGBT rights. More than a few LGBT social networkers described themselves as
    being “in tears” upon hearing the Clinton speech, and many lamented that
    Clinton was not president — and they weren’t giving up on that prospect. ο»Ώ

    I never ever thought in my lifetime that I would listen to such an
    important politician standing up for gay peoples natural rights in such an
    eloquent manner and with so much conviction. God Bless you President Obama
    and Mrs Clinton of course

    @anatol1204 LoL…you want people to travel to a mountain to remove the
    gift of love? Fine. The more people commune with Nature the more She shows
    them how much more important love is than dogma

    In summary, the Clintons were dealt a bad blow: they had a Tea Party like
    Congress elected in 1994 and dealt with it the best they could. They’re
    progressives, but they dealt with the cards given to them. It was a shitty
    deck of cards, because Americans keep electing silly conservatives that
    don’t even believe in the government they are sent to govern.

    A lot of tomorrows have passed my friend, in the 60s and 70s it was against
    the law here in the USA to be gay, and you could be put in jail. In the 8os
    and 90s, you could be fired from your job, evicted from your rental home
    for being gay in the USA, now we are in 2012 and passing marriage equality
    laws at a fairly fast rate. A lot of tomorrows have past. . Michael

    What a perfect speech! Hillary is such an inspiration! Really, this was
    such a beautiful speech and she hits the nail on the head with all her
    points. I’m blown away. =] I aspire to be such a eloquent advocate for
    equality like she is. β™₯ This speech makes me love and respect her even
    more. Amazing. Thanks for sharing, Michael. β™₯

    In parts of Africa and the Middle East, its illegal to be gay, sometimes
    with a death penalty. Before you say this is just part of Islam, remember
    that not too long ago it was illegal to be gay in the United States. Sodomy
    was a crime. No laws protected the lgbt community from discrimination. In
    the past few decades, we have made a lot of progress. We no longer tolerate
    the type of gay bashing that killed Matthew Shepherd. The lgbt community
    around the world still needs support. Salaam2all

    Wow what a heart felt speech which should have made those people who have
    opposed LGBT rights hang their head in shame — i think Hillary deserves a
    Nobel prize for her efforts in this area.

    Yes really, we are not in the 1996 any longer so politicians are more
    likely to survive reelection now days when taking a stand for equality,
    although she was not truly a politician herself in 1996, she was the first
    lady, and to speak out against it could have brought down the Clinton
    presidency, if that happened the Bigot Republican Party would be in power
    making much more restrictive laws and we would not have made the gains we
    enjoy today.
