Mission America’s Linda Harvey yesterday attacked the College Republican National Committee for acknowledging that the GOP’s anti-gay stances were alienating young voters, who overwhelmingly support gay rights, and asking the party to “welcome healthy debate on the policy topic at hand.” She compared such a move to a science teacher instructing a class that there is a “healthy debate” as to whether the sun revolves around the earth because some “low-information students” think that’s how the solar system works.
While that is actually a great argument against teaching intelligent design and creationism in schools, Harvey said the situation would be like the GOP adjusting its rhetoric around abortion rights and gay equality in order to attract young voters.
Harvey even drew a parallel between same-sex marriage and racism: “Would a responsible party welcome a healthy debate on racism? Of course not.”
“Makes perfect sense until you remember that these young voters don’t know what they’re talking about,” Harvey continued. “Rather than pledge to educate the uninformed, the segment of these younger voters who are showing the effectiveness of propaganda but little wisdom; no, these researchers recommend the GOP back off of the truth.”
She accused the young Republicans of “ignoring all the evidence” about the supposed harms of homosexuality, which she said is “being packaged and sold to vulnerable children,” and catering to the “militant gay lobby.” Harvey even called for a third party based on Tea Party and religious values if the GOP turns into “the meaningless party.”
She offered a similar anti-gay commentary today, warning that Obamacare will aid centers that “blatantly promote the harmful, high-risk behavior of homosexuality,” along with Planned Parenthood’s “child extinction” clinics.
Harvey, who earlier called on people to refuse care from gay doctors and nurses, said that LGBT people are “in denial” about the health consequences of their “lifestyle”: “Any provider who encourages people to enter this lifestyle, especially children, or continue it or actively promotes it as part of the LGBT community, is in denial about the consequences. If you promote homosexuality, healthcare costs will rise, plain and simple. We taxpayers need to be more asking more questions about such irresponsible approaches.
MassResistance is celebrating the approval of harsh anti-gay legislation in Nigeria and Russia, and even blaming gay rights advocates for a brutal attack they suffered in Moscow. The group cited an Associated Press article about the Russian bill, which bans gay “propaganda” and gay rights material, and a vicious attack against opponents who were staging a “kissing rally”:
Before the vote, gay rights activists attempted to hold a "kissing rally" outside the State Duma, located across the street from Red Square in central Moscow, but they were attacked by hundreds of Orthodox Christian activists and members of pro-Kremlin youth groups. The mostly burly young men with closely cropped hair pelted them with eggs while shouting obscenities and homophobic slurs.
Riot police moved in, detaining more than two dozen protesters, almost all of them gay rights activists. Some who were not detained were beaten by masked men on a central street about a mile away.
But according to MassResistance, such violence was “provoked by homosexual activists,” who were only kissing.
“[M]any countries are starting to recognize the destructive aspects of the homosexual movement and taking concrete steps to deal with it,” the group writes. “Although in some cases the punishments are more draconian than Westerners are comfortable with, there is a sense that these nations do not want their cultural decisions dictated by the United States and other Western countries.”
The anti-gay organization even credited Scott Lively, who also helped craft anti-gay laws in Uganda, for the Russian legislation:
The Russian parliament (the Duma), voted 436-0 for a bill which bans giving information on homosexuality to minors or holding "gay pride" rallies. It is expected by insiders to pass easily in the upper house and be signed by Vladimir Putin. Just before the vote, homosexual activists held a public "kiss-in" outside the parliament building, which incited a heated reaction by traditionalists who were also there.
The bill is a culmination of events going back to 2007, when Massachusetts-based Pastor Scott Lively went on a 50-city speaking tour of Russia on pro-family issues. Lively subsequently published a widely distributed open letter to the Russian people warning them about allowing the homosexual agenda to become "mainstream" in that country.
Obviously, it is unfortunate that there was violence over this, though apparently it was provoked by homosexual activists.
It's expected that the United States, Britain, and other Western countries, which have formal foreign policies calling for protection of homosexual activism throughout the world, will announce their intention to impose sanctions or other action against Russia over this. It would appear that the Russians aren't worried about it.
As we reported last week regarding the recently passed bill in Nigeria outlawing homosexual activism, many countries are starting to recognize the destructive aspects of the homosexual movement and taking concrete steps to deal with it. Although in some cases the punishments are more draconian than Westerners are comfortable with, there is a sense that these nations do not want their cultural decisions dictated by the United States and other Western countries.
Responding to the White House’s LGBT Pride celebration, Pastor Larry Tomczak in Charisma magazine maintained that gays and their allies are putting America “on the path to destruction.” Tomczak writes that events which “brazenly celebrate, legitimize and promote the gay lifestyle in America” are part of the country’s “downward spiral” and gay “tsunami.”
After the pastor shared a story about how his father-in-law, a veteran of World War II, confronted his church for not speaking out more aggressively against homosexuality, Tomczak drew parallels between gays in America and Nazis in 1930s Germany: “It would do us well to recall that in Nazi Germany, only a small percentage of the people were part of the Nazi party. Amid the atrocities, the overwhelming majority were apathetic and afraid to speak up…. Is history repeating itself?”
Observing the president of our United States on Thursday in the White House, kicking off the official celebration of "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Month," he was introduced by two 9-year-old girls celebrating their lesbian mothers.
Flanked by a smiling Vice President Biden, President Obama then called out individuals with gay backgrounds amid applause. Finally, he reaffirmed his commitment to same-sex marriage and gay initiatives in America. This coincides with his administration releasing directives so that individuals will be forced to affirm homosexuality in the federal government. Remaining silent will be seen as discrimination and put their jobs in jeopardy.
Last week in Washington, D.C., was the giant gay pride event. This week it comes to Nashville, Tenn. These events are taking place all over America to brazenly celebrate, legitimize and promote the gay lifestyle in America. Having attended multiple events like this to share the gospel over the past decade, I can assure you there are parades, but they're not G-rated. Although children are everywhere, nudity, profanity, debauchery, drunkenness and drug abuse abound.
What is happening to our United States of America?
1. The downward spiral described in Romans 1 is unfolding before our eyes in this great country. Refusing to honor and give thanks to God, we are being turned over to our own self-indulgence, which takes us on the path to destruction unless there is revival.
A few days ago, my wife's father, who is in his early 90s, spoke something to me that had tremendous impact on my life. He is a committed Christian, an elder and part of what is oftentimes called "the Greatest Generation" due to their courageous stand against the Nazis in World War II. Joe and Anne have been married 68 years!
He's never done this before, but he said he had a prophetic word to share with me. The core of it: "Why are leaders in our churches and ministries afraid to speak up in a charitable way concerning what's happening regarding homosexuality today?"
It would do us well to recall that in Nazi Germany, only a small percentage of the people were part of the Nazi party. Amid the atrocities, the overwhelming majority were apathetic and afraid to speak up. Consider the consequences.
Is history repeating itself?
It is imperative that those of us who are authentic Christians come to grips with the reality and urgency of this hour. We are in a tsunami! Our ship is filled with holes; the mast has fallen off; the navigation system has gone awry; and many of our leaders are nowhere to be found or strangely silent.
The opposition is not ashamed. The clock is ticking. A third Great Awakening awaits all of us if we respond to His prompting in this day.
Government Is Not God PAC has issued a warning to President Obama over his ceremony marking LGBT Pride Month, warning that “his goal of normalizing homosexuality in America” will not go unpunished. The group urged Obama to read what “the Lord Jesus Christ said about those who defile children: ‘But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.’”
President Barack Hussein Obama and Vice President Joe Biden spent last Thursday celebrating “gay pride” at a White House ceremony – a ceremony that included two young twin girls who are being “parented” by two lesbians.
Obama used these twins as props in his effort to maintain his “gay” political base. During the ceremony, he announced that another lesbian judge had been confirmed by the Senate to serve in a lifetime post on the federal bench. Lesbian Nitza Quinones Alejandro will serve on the federal court in Pennsylvania. She’s the first openly lesbian federal judge and the fifth one to openly homosexual serving in the federal court system.
According to Obama: “From Minnesota to Maryland, from the United States Senate to the NBA, it’s clear we’re reaching a turning point” in his goal of normalizing homosexuality in America.
In a special video on LGBT Gay Pride Month, Obama praised “gay” leaders who had “bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.” That’s a clever way of saying they have turned morality upside down and violated God’s moral laws in pushing for the normalization of homosexual sex acts.s [sic]
Obama, who claims to be a Christian, might want to read Romans 1:18-31.
And, he might want to read that the Lord Jesus Christ said about those who defile children: “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” – Matthew 18:6.
Like other conservative writers, William Murray sees the 1950s as a utopian age, only to be ruined by struggles for civil rights later on. He writes today in WorldNetDaily that America is now suffering the consequences of conservatives having “lost’ the culture war “in the 1960s in the midst of bean bag chairs, lava lamps, cheap wine and marijuana smoke” to the left and the gays.
Murray laments that while gays are “the most violent of the abusers of children in our society,” they “are treated as a protected class” and helped usher in America’s “moral decline.”
He also blamed Social Security and Medicare for society’s ills—again—and declared that Obamacare is “the final blow” to the American family.
Loving Christian couples often cannot adopt children in the current culture because they are declared bigots for not accepting anal sex as normal. Homosexuals, the most violent of the abusers of children in our society, are treated as a protected class. State welfare offices pay women not to marry the fathers of their children, and the elderly receive funds to disengage from their children and grandchildren and move to warmer climates.
Courts have ruled that a girl 13 or younger can buy an abortion drug – the “morning after” pill – over the counter, and use this powerful drug without permission of parents or a doctor.
During the 1960s, the drug and “gay” counter-culture of San Francisco flourished, and nude bathing at a park in Austin, Texas, began. New York City in the 1960s was far worse than portrayed in the movie “The Cross and the Switchblade”; the city was a hell hole on the edge of bankruptcy. Anti-war protests encouraged by money from the Soviet KGB filled the streets of cities with angry youth, and a communist by the name of Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President John F. Kennedy.
The first major blow to the family was Social Security, the second Medicare and the third welfare. These programs drove Grandma and Grandpa out of the home and to Florida. Free from the responsibility of caring for aging parents, the “me generation” was able to concentrate on pleasure and material success. Religion was seen as simply an impediment to pre-marital sex, divorce, alcohol, drug use, gambling and materialism. The final blow is Obamacare, which takes away even the responsibility of caring for children from families. The safety net is so broad that the family is simply no longer necessary.
Yes, I am very politically incorrect to those on both sides of the fence. The left will say I am gay bashing and against the “progress” of individual freedom from moral restraints and economic worries. The social conservative right will say I have abandoned prayer for our schools. Neither view is true. I am simply being honest about the date the cultural war was lost. The drift to defeat did not begin with the removal of prayer from the schools. The cultural war was lost in the 1960s in the midst of bean bag chairs, lava lamps, cheap wine and marijuana smoke. That loss has led America to its current financial, political and moral decline.
WorldNetDaily columnist Patrick Brady is marking the birthday of the U.S. Army by saying that he will no longer “encourage any young person to enlist in today’s military” and he “would not give one drop of blood for the country and military we are becoming.”
Because President Obama is letting men dance with each other in his “quad-sexual military.”
“[Obama] introduced homosexual conduct into barracks, military communities and foxholes,” Brady writes. “Soldiers will see their chain of command dancing and romancing other men – or women, or both. I wonder if Mr. Obama believes that the sight of him dancing with other men at state functions would be inconsequential.”
Thanks to Obama’s “insanity,” Brady adds, now “Army posts, camps and stations [are] peopled by same-sex couples in gay, lesbian and bisexual clubs where fraternization and adultery are indefinable.”
He also warns that the military is becoming a “sexual and moral morass with readiness in shambles” like the Boy Scouts of America, which has “introduce[d] fornication, by definition, into their ranks.”
Our Army has been housed in communities of like-minded patriots separate and independent from the communities of America. The functions of those communities – schools, commissaries PXs, churches, theaters and clubs – all reflect our unique military discipline and values.
Enter Mr. Obama, a progressive moralist, who introduced homosexual conduct into barracks, military communities and foxholes, and transformed our military from heterosexual to quad-sexual (homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender). As if that weren’t enough, he is now putting females in foxholes much to the delight of our future battlefield enemies. With these changes will come a change in standards: physical for women and moral for Christians.
We are already seeing attacks on Christians and conservatives in the military. How can a military chaplain, Christian or Muslim, not teach the truths of the Bible on sodomy? Mr. Obama and his military sycophants must silence them. And it has begun. The Boy Scouts have been a kind of mini-military, and they face the same moral dilemma. How can they be morally straight when their leadership (essentially to protect their salaries) introduces fornication, by definition, into their ranks?
Unless America wakes up and stops this insanity, we will be celebrating the Army’s 239th birthday on Army posts, camps and stations peopled by same-sex couples in gay, lesbian and bisexual clubs where fraternization and adultery are indefinable – as is discipline. Homosexual health, deployment and blood issues will enter battle planning. Soldiers will see their chain of command dancing and romancing other men – or women, or both. I wonder if Mr. Obama believes that the sight of him dancing with other men at state functions would be inconsequential. The military will become a sexual and moral morass with readiness in shambles.
Over the years, I have done my share of recruiting. My military service to America was the greatest thing that ever happened to me. All my children served. I would not serve in a quad-sexual military, nor would I encourage any young person to enlist in today’s military. I would give my life for the country and military I served. I would not give one drop of blood for the country and military we are becoming. Hopefully, on this birthday of our Army and our flag, Americans will pray that the disasters of this presidency will be reversed.
Janet Porter stopped by TruNews with Rick Wiles on Wednesday to publicize her new film project, The Criminalization of Christianity, and discuss the alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups. After making the laughable claim that conservative groups “weren’t allowed to exist” during the 2012 election cycle, she made the even more absurd argument that Obamacare will jeopardize our “ability to exist as a live human being” and that conservatives will be denied “lifesaving treatment.”
This is what it’s come down to, political profiling and targeting. I believe the elections were effected, if you basically target every Tea Party group and every conservative group that might just inform their members of what’s going on and what’s at stake, they weren’t allowed to exist. When you keep in mind that these same people at the IRS are going to be deciding whether we ourselves can exist because we’re now giving them the keys to control our healthcare, whether or not we receive life-saving treatment, and if they target people based on their political views for their ability to exist as an organization, why would they not use the same tactics to target individuals on whether or not they have the ability to exist as a live human being who is denied the lifesaving treatment that they now are in control of? These are frightening times. I was talking to Tom DeLay and I said to him this: they may have the power, they may have the technology and they may have a lot of things but we have a couple of things we have going for us, we have the truth and we have God.
For the conservatives who do survive the Obamacare death panels, Porter predicts a grim future where people are thrown in jail for speaking against gay marriage or refusing to perform gay nuptials. She also alleged that Obama’s gaffe about visiting fifty-seven states was really a sign that he is a Muslim because there are fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
She added that Obama and Hillary Clinton used (or orchestrated) the Benghazi attack to criminalize anti-Muslim speech. Repeating Bill Federer’s debunked claims about the Benghazi attack, Porter said the Obama administration committed the “ultimate hate crime” and “hate crime of hate crimes” over the death of Amb. Christopher Stevens, whom she thinks was gay.
I’m working on a film right now called the Criminalization of Christianity, after the book it’s basically the updated message from leaders of what’s at stake in the battle for marriage. If we don’t win it, it is going to be the criminalization of Christianity: it will be pastors who are carried off into jail for not performing homosexual marriages; it’s going to be those of us who dare to say there’s hope for change and let me tell you about a God of the impossible that can change your heart and change your life, that’s going to be illegal.
I just interviewed Bill Federer, he said to me that [Hillary Clinton] promised the fifty-seven Islamic states—remember when Barack Obama said that he traveled to all fifty-seven states, it’s just ironically, coincidentally, fifty-seven Islamic states and that’s what he was referring to, he didn’t mess up with how many American states, his allegiance was elsewhere in my opinion—so what happened was the promise was made by Hillary I’m told that don’t worry we’re going to make sure we silence all disagreement of Islam.
So when Benghazi came down and the ambassador there—who I’m told was a homosexual, talk about the hate crime of hate crimes, if this is true, the government ignoring his pleas for help, that’s probably the ultimate hate crime by letting this man die and telling others to stand down—they took advantage or created it on purpose, they took this crisis and they said, here we got something, we’re going to pick somebody who’s got an amateur video and he’s got some other issues and we’re going to pick on him and we’re going to silence his voice because if they let us silence his voice, then tomorrow we’re going to silence your pastor’s voice and your voice.
Earlier this year, televangelist Pat Robertson claimed that the Boy Scouts of America would be opening the door to “predators” and “pedophiles” if the organization ended its ban on gay members. Following the BSA’s decision to lift its ban on openly gay youth, Robertson on the 700 Club today said that it is a “terrible shame” that a “tiny minority” is “willing to rip apart the framework of traditional marriage; to rip apart an organization that has done so much good for young people, the Boy Scouts; to rip apart certain of these other things that we have counted as important in our society; all for one thing: that the way they do sex will be accepted in the mainstream of society.”
“Two percent deciding what the rest of us does,” Robertson warned, “and they are willing to destroy it. Hollywood and the so-called liberal media has jumped on board that this is the new civil rights, well I don’t think so.”
He went on to say that it “breaks your heart” to see the Boy Scouts “torn up in order to accommodate a few kids who want to do sex with each other. It just boggles the mind.”
Mike Huckabee was joined by Concerned Women for America head Penny Nance yesterday to discuss CWA’s new campaign, Willing 2 Stand, designed to reach out to young people on their opposition to abortion rights and marriage equality. During most of the interview, Nance maintained that conservatives on college campuses were “bullied” and had trouble articulating their views on topics like gay rights.
The former governor and presidential candidate said that “every fear that people had” about the consequences of legalizing same-sex marriage “has in fact come true,” arguing that people have lost “their rights” in states with marriage equality.
Huckabee seemed especially sad that he now has to see “television commercials portraying same-sex couples” while textbooks are “forced” to mention gay marriage.
The very thing that many people and I know CWA was a part of this, saying, this is why the legalization of same-sex marriage is going to be a much bigger issue than just saying we let people love whoever they want to love, that’s not the issue. Will it force businesses—of course everyone will say, oh no people still have their rights, but they don’t. And every fear that people had has in fact come true, that this is being forced in textbooks on how marriage is depicted, we’re now even seeing television commercials portraying same-sex couples, that’s something I guess I didn’t expect to see anytime soon.
Televangelist James Robison warns that the drive for marriage equality comes from “Satan himself,” writing in a blog post that the debate over legalizing same-sex marriage is part of a “satanic intent to take away freedom” and “a cosmic battle between God and Satan” and “good and evil.”
While discussing marriage equality legislation in Illinois, Robison said that Satan and “and his demonic forces” are pushing the bill in order to grow the size of government as part of a “liberal, inverted, secular agenda.”
Keep in mind the enemy of God – Satan himself – is the father of all lies. He and his demonic forces are fiercely focusing their fury against God’s kingdom purpose and anyone committed to it. What you are witnessing daily in news reports concerning Washington’s bad practices and policies related to the gross abuse of power by the IRS, along with unconstitutional checks on the free press, reveals satanic intent to take away freedom.
What we’re actually witnessing is a cosmic battle between God and Satan; good and evil; right and wrong; absolutes and cultural relativism. It is the collision of two diametrically opposed worldviews. Forget the hypocritical, manipulative rhetoric. One wants to remove God, redefine truth, replace Christianity and the Judeo-Christian ethic. Tragically, this has been happening with nauseating success because many who claim to know and love God have allowed it to happen because of indifference and lack of involvement.
The truth remains, however, that those who have allowed it to happen are the ones who can correct it – and the only ones who can. Those committed to a biblical worldview and God’s kingdom purpose hold the key to the future here and in the hereafter.
Here is an example of what church leaders can do. On Friday, May 31, a significant bill went before the Illinois General Assembly: SB10, the “Religious Freedom Marriage Fairness Act.” Due to the efforts of a coalition of African-American pastors who decided to take a stand against same-sex marriage, the legislature ended its session – without voting on the bill. Led by former Sen. James Meeks, now pastor of Salem Baptist Church in Chicago, the group actively campaigned with automated calls, urging voters to contact their local representatives and tell them to vote no for the bill. Clearly, their voices were heard. It was a victory for everyone who supports traditional marriage.
Rep. Greg Harris, the bill’s sponsor, acknowledged that his colleagues wanted more time to talk with their constituents. The bill could come up again this fall for a vote – but it isn’t likely that the bill’s opponents will change their minds. What looked to be unstoppable was at least put on pause. If other professing Christians, pastors, priests, and church leaders will come out of the closet, the present cultural shift away from God could be stopped.
Be on guard: There is a worldview committed to getting through the walls of truth and principles upon which we stand. As the prophet Joel noted, the destructive enemy comes through the windows at any point of vulnerability (see Joel 2:9). We need to be aware that there are opposing worldviews. One has God at the top; the other only acknowledges Him when they think it is advantageous to further their liberal, inverted, secular agenda and force their ways on the American people.
If “we the people” do not call upon God, seek His face and His will, make wise decisions, we will witness the collapse of freedom. We will witness firsthand: small God, big – indescribably big – government, devastating debt, economic and moral collapse. Our worldview and commitment to stand courageously for truth and freedom makes all the difference determining our direction.
Mat Staver and Shawn Akers of Liberty Counsel are incensed that a U.S Department of Agriculture newsletter [PDF] promotes an LGBT pride event, or as Staver called it, “the sexual anarchist event.”
On Friday’s edition of Faith & Freedom, Staver said the newsletter is proof that the USDA “intimidates employees if they don’t participate,” while Akers argued that the agency is using Saul Alinsky tactics to wage a “quiet revolution” and a “culture war.”
Later, the two also discussed a brochure on creating an inclusive work environment from DOJPride, an LGBT rights group of Department of Justice employees, which they claim cripples free speech even though it has no enforcement provisions.
“Essentially what we have in this administration is an LGBT affirmative action program,” Staver claimed. “This is the most outrageous violation of conscience and the First Amendment that I have seen within any federal agency to force people’s conscience to affirm something that historically has been, and according to natural law and biblical revelation, is unnatural, immoral and unhealthy.”
Conservative writer Robert R. Reilly has moved from anti-Islam activism to attacking LGBT equality advocates, warning in a column today that gays and lesbians “use a stealth approach under the cover of issues such as school safety, diversity, and bullying” to “enforce” homosexuality in the classroom.
Reilly, who is “currently completing a book on the natural law argument against homosexual marriage for Ignatius Press,” warns that “the infiltration of higher education by LGBT studies” has led to the proliferation of “LGBT propaganda in elementary schools and high schools.” He claims that gays and lesbians have introduced “shocking” materials into the classroom that are “invitations to obscenity.”
“It is a measure of the depravity of the homosexual movement that it will not spare the innocence of children,” Reilly writes, arguing that the drive “to make the abnormative normative before the children have developed their critical faculties of thought” will promote “evil teaching” that “scandalizes the children.”
He even refers to homosexuality as an “affliction” and a “sickness”: “[R]espect does not require calling the affliction something other than what it is – much less its opposite. One cannot teach about sickness and at the same time call it health.”
The logic works like this: If homosexual acts are moral, as so many now insist, then they should be normative. If they are normative, they should be taught in our schools as a standard. If they are a standard, they should be enforced. And so it has come, and is coming, to be. Education is an essential part of the drive to universalize the rationalization for homosexual behavior; so it must become a mandatory part of the curriculum.
The infiltration of higher education by LGBT studies is well known. However, less attention seems to have been paid to the effort to spread LGBT propaganda in elementary schools and high schools. Because of the young ages of students K through 12, the introduction of pro-homosexual materials has required a special sensitivity from those who are trying to get away with it. They must avoid the explicit nature of the LGBT courses offered at the college level and disguise the effort in terms of something other than what it really is. Therefore, they use a stealth approach under the cover of issues such as school safety, diversity, and bullying.
It is a measure of the depravity of the homosexual movement that it will not spare the innocence of children in the spread of its rationalization, which must embrace everyone at every age, regardless of price. Innocence cannot be left to stand in its way. As shocking as some of the classroom and reading material may be, it is all part of the inexorable logic of the situation playing itself out.
Classroom presentations by homosexuals or on the subject of homosexuality are invitations to obscenity and inevitably lead to the question asked by one boy during It’s Elementary: “How do you guys do it?” The response was, “We are not allowed to talk about our personal sex lives – we can't do that”. Nevertheless, with the question implanted, curious young minds will ineluctably be drawn to the subject of sodomy. “So that’s what those nice guys who talked with us do? There must not be anything wrong with it”. Mission accomplished – to make the abnormative normative before the children have developed their critical faculties of thought.
Everyone who has an affliction deserves respect and consideration. But respect does not require calling the affliction something other than what it is – much less its opposite. One cannot teach about sickness and at the same time call it health. It is much worse to promote moral sickness as moral well-being – especially to children.
To teach children that one’s orientation, sexual or otherwise, gives one license to perform acts that are inherently immoral is an evil teaching. It scandalizes the children. It also degrades the dignity of human free will and responsibility to teach that these acts are inevitable outcomes of “who we are”, rather than as freely chosen deeds with consequences in terms of both moral and physical health.
GOP strategist Raynard Jackson has a new anti-gay column in Charisma today that calls on social services to take MSNBC host Krystal Ball’s daughter away from her for “indoctrinat[ing] her daughter about homosexual marriage.”
“Social services should remove Ella from this house because her mother is without question an unfit parent,” Jackson writes. “What Ball did to her daughter may not be child abuse legally, but morally it is definitely abuse, and I am amazed that even liberals of goodwill have not criticized her for such abuse.”
He claims that progressives want to “take another person’s child and brainwash them into believing that homosexual marriage is OK” and “brainwash innocent children to perpetuate their radical liberalism.”
“Is it OK for Ball’s 5-year-old to begin experimenting with kissing boys and girls or touching her classmates in intimate places?” he asks.
After calling for the government to take Ball’s daughter away, Jackson wrote: “This is why we need to keep the government out of our lives to the greatest extent possible.”
Lately, I have been stressing the importance of preserving the sanctity of the traditional family—mother, father and children. There is not one example throughout the history of the world of a society prospering without an intact family unit. Susie can’t have two moms, nor can Jimmy have two dads.
So, let me give you a real-world example of liberalism gone amuck. What I saw on MSNBC recently sent chills down my spine—a parent abusing their own child on national TV to promote an insidious political agenda, which is totally disgusting. You must see this video.
Krystal Ball, another MSNBC talk show host and feminist, aired a video of her and her 5-year-old daughter, Ella. Ball asks Ella if she knows what marriage is, and she says she does not. Then the daughter says marriage is between a man and a woman. That’s when her mother begins to indoctrinate her daughter about homosexual marriage. I was mortified that a parent would do this to her own daughter—on national TV. Social services should remove Ella from this house because her mother is without question an unfit parent.
So, this is the type of world that Melissa Perry wants to create, one where someone like Ball could take another person’s child and brainwash them into believing that homosexual marriage is OK. What parent has this type of conversation with a 5-year-old? Is this what Perry means when she says, “Kids belong to whole communities”? They know they cannot win the argument with logic, so they must brainwash innocent children to perpetuate their radical liberalism. This is why we need to keep the government out of our lives to the greatest extent possible.
What Ball did to her daughter may not be child abuse legally, but morally it is definitely abuse, and I am amazed that even liberals of goodwill have not criticized her for such abuse.
I challenge Perry to describe to the American people what her world looks like if our kids belong to whole communities. Is she OK with me teaching her 14-year-old daughter, Parker, that homosexuality is wrong? Whose values should be taught to these kids? Is it OK for Ball’s 5-year-old to begin experimenting with kissing boys and girls or touching her classmates in intimate places? I see what the problem is. You are having an adult conversation with a 5-year-old, so she may as well enjoy the fruits of being an adult. Why else would you be having this conversation with her?
American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios is marking LGBT Pride Month by once again arguing that gay men are much more likely to be sexual predators. On her show last Friday, Rios told listeners that “there is a huge amount of sexual abuse in the male gay community,” saying that the levels of abuse are “epidemic.”
She later went on to diagnose President Obama with a case of self-hatred against the white side of his family and suggested that he is ungrateful for all that America has done for him: “Obama seems to have a certain hatred for—oh I should be careful—let’s just say his sympathies aren’t with the white demographic.” “He is a man with both races coursing through his veins and what happened to him? He seems to have had every privilege known to man,” Rios wondered, “and still he seems resentful” of whites.
Nigeria’s legislature recently passed a harsh anti-gay law that would punish same-sex couples and the “public show of same-sex amorous relationships” with long jail sentences and make the advocacy of gay rights illegal. The head of Nigeria’s Human Rights Commission warned that the legislation would even criminalize public displays of affection between family members of the same sex.
But the anti-gay group MassResistance is quite pleased and praised Nigeria for “taking bold steps to fight back” against attempts “to subvert public morality.”
“The breakdown in society caused by the homosexual movement seems to bring more general social destruction in African cultures than in the West,” the group said in a blog post. “And nation after nation has had enough.”
The government of Nigeria, which has one of the world's largest populations of AIDS sufferers, is outraged by what they feel is the Western world's efforts to subvert public morality. They are now taking bold steps to fight back.
Almost predictably, Great Britain and the United States are threatening to take action against Nigeria for having the nerve to challenge Western political correctness. A strong bill passes the Nigerian legislature
On Thursday, May 30 the Nigerian House passed a bill which outlaws and provides jail terms for homosexual activism, public homosexual behavior, and anyone entering into or conducting a "gay marriage." An identical bill passed the Senate in 2011. It now goes to the President.
As the Associated Press reported on Thursday:
Nigeria's House of Representatives voted Thursday to ban gay marriage and outlaw any groups actively supporting gay rights, endorsing a measure that also calls for 10-year prison sentences for any "public show" of affection by a same-sex couple.
Representatives appeared to unanimously approve the proposal in a voice vote, sending it immediately to President Goodluck Jonathan for him to potentially sign into law in Africa's most populous nation. It wasn't immediately clear if Jonathan would sign the measure, though gays and lesbians already face public ridicule and possible prison sentences in Nigeria.
While Western diplomats declined to immediately comment, the United Kingdom already has threatened to stop aid to nations that discriminate against gays. But those threats appear unlikely to assuage the desire of Nigerian authorities to further criminalize homosexuality, part of a wave of such laws in African nations eager to legislate against what they believe is a challenge of their traditional values by the West.
. . .In 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama issued a similar directiveasking officials to "ensure that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of" gays, lesbians and the transgendered. That included having diplomats "combat the criminalization" of being gay by foreign governments. . .
The Obama Administration even has an "openly gay" State Department official who specializes in dealing with African and Asian countries that are deemed "hostile" to the LGBT worldwide agenda.
In many ways, the Africans are feeling the brunt of the world-wide homosexual activist movement even more than the United States. They are dealing with the huge spread of AIDS. But also, the breakdown in society caused by the homosexual movement seems to bring more general social destruction in African cultures than in the West. And nation after nation has had enough.
Luckily, they're not intimidated by the West. We'll let you know what happens.
The American Family Association’s One Million Moms is asking members to contact advertisers on “The Fosters,” a show about a lesbian couple raising adopted, biological and foster children, and demand that they drop the program for “attacking my faith, morals and values.”
“Not only is this program insulting to conservative viewers and traditional families,” the sample email to advertisers reads, “but it also focuses on a controversial subject that your company would probably not desire to be associated with.”
The group claims that the show’s emphasis on helping foster children is offset by the attempt to “redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together” and “desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior, especially on a family channel.”
ABC Family Channel has several anti-family programs and has now added to that growing list. ABC Family's new show "The Fosters" is about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Adding this program to a lineup that already includes "Pretty Little Liars," "Twisted," "Daddy Baby" and "The Lying Game" many demonstrates to families that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But, because "family" is part of the network's name, we thought a warning should be sent out to anyone who continues to watch the channel.
New episodes will air on Monday evenings at 9:00pm ET/8:00pm CT. In addition, frequent promos are airing for this new series. Families should avoid the network completely; otherwise, you run the risk of viewing a commercial for this new, offensive program.
ABC Family's show "The Fosters" is about two women raising a multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. Unacceptable content in the first episode included one foster child as an inmate in a juvenile detention center, sneaking and selling prescription drugs to earn money, a lesbian couple kissing on the mouth and snuggling in bed together, mentioning they are gay multiple times and purchasing condoms for their eldest son. …
Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "The Fosters." This week's national sponsors were: Olive Garden, Pier 1 Imports, Popeye's, Wendy's and Royal Caribbean.
Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of the attempt to desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior on a family channel.
As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I strongly encourage your company to drop all plans of financially supporting the inappropriate ABC Family Channel program "The Fosters." This show is degrading to families and damaging to our culture.
I am appalled that your company is supporting a show that features homosexuality in a positive light on a family channel. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. The content of this program also includes violence involving children, children selling drugs and parents purchasing condoms for their children so they can practice casual sex before marriage. Obviously, none of this material is acceptable to air on a family show.
While your company is a household name, I do not agree with your financial backing of this program. As a Christian, I feel you are attacking my faith, morals and values. Not only is this program insulting to conservative viewers and traditional families, but it also focuses on a controversial subject that your company would probably not desire to be associated with.
As a consumer, I am asking you to please pull your ad immediately and to support traditional family values and family-friendly programming instead. My decision to support your company depends on it.
I urge your company to place "The Fosters" on your "do not advertise" list in protest of attempting to desensitize America and our children by promoting inappropriate behavior, especially on a family channel.
My family and I look forward to your response.
On Washington Watch this week, Tony Perkins lambasted USAID for holding an activist training in Colombia working on ways to promote LGBT equality and curb anti-LGBT violence. Since Perkins is under the false impression that the “majority of Americans oppose” and “object to” LGBT rights and protections, he said that the summit represents “another breach of trust with Americans” on par with the controversy surrounding accusations the IRS targeted conservative organizations.
Perkins, who has spoken approvingly of the “kill the gays” bill in Uganda, claimed “this is just another part of its strong-arm strategy to bully another nation into compliance with their liberal social policy” and “bribe, coerce and force poor countries into accepting his pro-homosexual agenda,” lamenting: “this administration is doing everything they can to remake not just America in their image, but the world.”
Now this week, the first in a series of USAID gay training took place in Colombia, a nation specifically targeted because its leaders struck down a bill redefining marriage. The goal, an agency spokesman says, is to teach people how to infiltrate the political process and advocate for laws that a majority of Americans oppose, by the way, and we’re paying for this program, these are things we object to, work against and we’re being forced through our tax dollars to pay for it. She says, “It can be a real game-changer in the advancement of LGBT human rights.” Essentially, U.S. taxpayers are being forced to groom the next generation of the world’s Human Rights Campaigns, a stunning exploitation of Americans’ tax dollars, and more importantly, I think this is another breach of trust with Americans. For the Obama administration, this is just another part of its strong-arm strategy to bully another nation into compliance with their liberal social policy. Whether it’s through the United Nations, U.S. embassies, or the State Department, President Obama is leading the effort to bribe, coerce and force poor countries into accepting his pro-homosexual agenda. And it’s being done with your tax dollars. So the IRS is just the tip of the iceberg. This administration is doing everything they can to remake not just America in their image, but the world.
The Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, which previously called on the Boston Red Sox to apologize for making an “It Gets Better” video, is now demanding that the team cancel a gay pride event. The group put out a statement attacking the baseball team for “celebrating a week of obscene perversion” that features a “hideous, obscene, and outright disgusting display of perverse activities.”
Celebrating a week of obscene perversion
The Red Sox have been around long enough to know that "Pride Week" in Boston is a hideous, obscene, and outright disgusting display of perverse activities. (Plus, in recent years, more young people have been drawn in through Boston Pride's management of Massachusetts Youth Pride every May.)
And the Boston Red Sox organization are not only going to celebrate it at their ballpark, but will be financially supporting it from their ticket sales.
In an interview with the American Family Association’s news service OneNewsNow, the MassResistance’s president Brian Camenker called on fans to contact the team urging them to cancel “Pride Night at Fenway Park.” Camenker insists that he is just thinking about the children:
Homosexual-rights group Boston Pride says it is partnering with Fenway Park to sponsor "Pride Night," but a search of the Red Sox and Fenway Park websites by OneNewsNow did not show the event listed.
However, there is one event listed for Thursday night at Fenway Park - the Red Sox are kicking off their June after-school celebration, "Calling All Kids."
"Baseball is largely for kids, so why should homosexual activism be part of that?" asks Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance.
"And you know a lot of just regular fans don't want to be part of that kind of thing when they go out for a baseball game," he adds.
"It's certainly nothing you expect." Camenker says the Red Sox organization is "going out of their way" to support the homosexual cause, including donating a percentage of Thursday night's proceeds to Boston Pride.
A special section of Fenway reportedly will also be designated for homosexuals who attend the ballgame.
"I called [the Red Sox] up and they don't seem to see how this is going to bother people," says Camenker. "They need to hear from people."
Tony Perkins must be watching a lot of LOGO, as the Family Research Council president appears to be under the impression that gays and lesbians represent close to one out of three characters on TV. “Homosexuals make up 4% of the population, but they’re a whopping 30% of TV characters and storylines,” Perkins maintained on his daily radio commentary today, even though according to GLAAD, “LGBT characters account for 4.4% of scripted series regulars in the 2012-2013 broadcast television schedule.”
The FRC based the commentary on an article in the conservative National Catholic Register criticizing “Hollywood’s powerful homosexual culture.” The 30% figure Perkins cited does not refer to gay characters on TV but to one Catholic screenwriter’s claim that “based on her own experience, [homosexuals] make up 30% of Hollywood’s entertainment industry.”
Not only did Perkins manufacture the “30%” figure, he also alleged that “lovable gay characters” on TV are “make-believe people” whose “dangerous lifestyle is just another funny footnote.” He warned that these gay characters are being used “to desensitize America.”
Perkins asserted that in reality, gays are typically “dying of AIDS” and “bullying kids.”
“Of course, producers don’t show you the reality of homosexuality: the men and women dying of AIDS, or the same-sex couples threatening Christian businesses,” Perkins said. “They don’t cast the Dan Savages bullying kids or the parents kicked out of school for opposing gay curriculum.”
Is marriage headed for a Hollywood ending? Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The debate over same-sex marriage has been perfectly scripted by Hollywood. Television shows are full of lovable gay characters, whose dangerous lifestyle is just another funny footnote. Unfortunately for America, those make-believe people are having a real-life impact. In a new survey, almost 20% of Americans credit television with changing their minds on same-sex marriage. And that’s no accident. Homosexuals make up 4% of the population, but they’re a whopping 30% of TV characters and storylines. Liberals are using this barrage to desensitize America and viewers are buying it. Of course, producers don’t show you the reality of homosexuality: the men and women dying of AIDS, or the same-sex couples threatening Christian businesses. They don’t cast the Dan Savages bullying kids or the parents kicked out of school for opposing gay curriculum. Like most everything else on TV, it’s fiction. And the only way to fight it is knowing your role in speaking truth!
