A pro-family activist says the White House was clearly telling the truth when it said that a recently created advisory position "reflects the values" of the Obama administration.

Rafael/Raffi Freedman-GurspanOn Tuesday the White House announced it has hired its first openly transgendered staff member. Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, a former policy adviser at the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), will serve as an outreach and recruitment director for presidential personnel in the Office of Personnel. White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett says Freedman-Gurspan's commitment to improving the lives of transgender Americans "reflects the values of this administration."

Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, says Jarrett got it right.

"For once we've got some truth out of this White House," he says, "because hiring an openly transgender person – a man who thinks he's a woman – actually does reflect the White House values because they've got everything backwards. Black is white, men are women, marriage is homosexuality. Everything's backwards from this White House, so [this] makes sense."

The executive director of the NCTE, Mara Keisling, has praised the appointment, saying it was inevitable that a transgender person was going to work in the Obama White House. "That the first transgender appointee is a transgender woman of color is itself significant," Keisling adds in a statement. Freedman-Gurspan is described as "Latina."

The Obama administration has been a major proponent of the LGBT agenda in numerous areas of American culture – including the military. In that regard, LaBarbera says this administration has been the most immoral in American history.

LaBarbera, Peter"Barack Obama has helped destroy marriage [and] radically revolutionized the definition of marriage," the activist begins. "He's promoted homosexuality abroad using foreign aid to push homosexuality and gender-confusion throughout the world. There's seems to be no end to the homosexual and transgender agenda in this administration."

Rafael was adopted from Honduras when he was nine months old. His mother, a now-retired social worker, wrote that he began identifying as "gay" from the age of 12 – and when she "sent a son abroad for his junior year of college ... by the time [I] visited Norway in May, [I] was visiting a daughter."
