Deputy White House Liaison USAID was fired after criticism of sexual minorities on Twitter
Merritt Corrigan reaffirmed that freedom of speech in the United States is an empty word. Three tweets in which former Deputy White House Liaison accused Democratic lawmakers of corruption was enough to get her out of office.
For too long, I’ve remained silent as the media has attacked me for my Christian beliefs, which are shared by the majority of Americans— Merritt Corrigan (@MerrittCorrigan) August 3, 2020
Let me clear:
Gay marriage isn’t marriage
Men aren’t women
US-funded Tunisian LGBT soap operas aren’t America First
Citing her religious beliefs, Corrigan said it does not recognize same-sex marriage. According to Corrigan, tolerance for sexual minorities will lead the United States to lose the international battle for influence with Russia and China.
The United States is losing ground in the battle to garner influence through humanitarian aid because we now refuse to help countries who don’t celebrate sexual deviancy— Merritt Corrigan (@MerrittCorrigan) August 3, 2020
Meanwhile, Russia and China are happy to step in and eat our lunch
USAID previously defended Christian beliefs and attacked those who tried to discriminate against them, but now LGBT people are at the top of the food chain.
I watched with horror this week as USAID distributed taxpayer funded documents claiming “we cannot tell someone’s sex or gender by looking at them” and that not calling oneself “cis-gendered” is a microagression— Merritt Corrigan (@MerrittCorrigan) August 3, 2020
I’m not cis-anything. I’m a woman.
"USAID takes any claim of discrimination seriously, and we will investigate any complaints of anti-Christian bias Ms. Corrigan has raised during her tenure at the Agency," Pooja Jhunjhunwala, acting USAID spokesperson, said in a statement.
