News anchor: ‘Gay marriage’ critics are racist


Contessa Brewer 4 Left

The Mainstream Media including Fox News is in the tank in favor of the godless Homosexual agenda to pervert Biblical Morals to support the validity of homosexuality as normal. Check out this recent WND article that begins with a focus on NBC news journalist Contessa Brewer but elaborates on a fund raiser for National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association. One of the surprising sponsors for me was Fox News which usually is a voice for the Conservative perspective in a sea of committed Leftist journalism.

 

Kincaid then dropped the hammer when he said what the real agenda of the NLGJA is:

 

Let us be clear: the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association is a special interest group that manipulates news coverage on behalf of the homosexual movement, and they brag about their successes. Their website boasts how the Associated Press has just released a statement announcing a new AP Stylebook entry for husband and wife, “coming after a requested revision by NLGJA.”

 

Thanks to NLGJA’s “Rapid Response Task Force,” AP will now use the terms husband and wife, without quotes, when referring to two men or two women in same-sex marriages. In other words, a man can be a wife, and a woman can be a husband. (Excerpted from: Fox News Helps Fund The Homosexual Agenda; by Tim Brown; Freedom Outpost, 3/23/13; READ ENTIRITY)

News anchor: ‘Gay marriage’ critics are racist

‘I think that there’s a difference between being objective and being fair’

As the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments two key same-sex marriage cases, a prominent member of the establishment media already is delivering her own verdict.

 

NBC’s Contessa Brewer compared people who oppose “gay marriage” to racists.NBC's Contessa Brewer

 

She made the comments at a fundraiser held Thursday night by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association in New York City.

 

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth asked Brewer if she had considered that the media may not be giving fair coverage to opponents of” same-sex marriage.

 

“You know what’s so funny about this? When we’re talking about racism, nobody ever says, ‘Do you think there’s fair coverage for racists?’ That’s my feeling about the matter. I think that there’s a difference between being objective and being fair. And sometimes wrong is wrong, and the right thing to do is say when it’s wrong,” she replied.

 

LaBarbera countered: “A lot of Christians, for example, think that racism is a sin, but they also think that homosexuality [is a sin].”

 

Brewer responded: “You know what I say? I grew up as the daughter of a Baptist preacher, and you know what my answer always is? If you think it’s wrong, then don’t do it. Thank you.”

 

She promptly walked away.

 

Brewer is a former MSNBC anchor who now hosts a weekend show on the cable network, regularly contributes to NBC and recently joined New York’s WNBC as an anchor.

 

Also attending the fundraiser were Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie of NBC, Gayle King of CBS News, Christine Romans of CNN, Amy Robach of ABC News and Amanda Drury of CNBC.

 

NLGJA says the event was sponsored by NBCUniversal, Bloomberg, CNN, CBS News, Fox News, the New York Times, Newsday, BuzzFeed, Newsday, Voli Light Vodka, Heineken, JetBlue, Hillshire, Eli Lilly and Company, General Motors, GPTMC and Fleishman-Hillard.

 

“We are not an advocacy group,” said NLGJA president Jen Christensen of CNN.

 

“But the entire evening was advocacy. There was no pretense of being even-handed in covering the homosexual rights movement, of which they are clearly a major part,” said Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media and America’s Survival, who covered the event.

 

“This was not just an event where journalists ‘came out of the closet’ for homosexual rights; it was a fundraiser for the cause. Our media paid big money to participate as sponsors and hosts,” added Kincaid, who videotaped the exchange between Brewer and LaBarbera.

 

Kincaid has written a letter to Fox News CEO Roger Ailes questioning Fox’s “funding of the homosexual rights movement.”

 

Natalie Morales of the NBC “Today” show hosted the event and described the establishment media’s treatment of “gay” issues.

 

“Many of us here in this room – the media – we are responsible for opening the world’s eyes to these issues and the stories that have brought about such change,” she told the crowd.

 

“When you think 18 years ago when this organization was founded – think of where the country was back then. And now, 50 percent – according to the Pew poll that we talked about on the news today – support gay marriage, and … some other polls put that number even higher. [This] reflects a change in attitudes in this country.”

 

Morales noted numerous developments in just the past year, including “the repeal of the military’s ban on gays and lesbians, the widening support for same-sex marriage.”

 

“The world seems to be evolving slowly but surely – from the president changing his position [on same-sex marriage] last year, to most recently this week … former Secretary [of State Hillary] Clinton now saying gays and lesbians are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. And last week of course Republican Senator Rob Portman said he now supports gay marriage because he wants his son, who is gay, to have the same rights to love equally. I mean this of course is 2013 but it is happening,” she said.

 

LaBarbera asked Morales: “If you disagree with homosexuality – you’re in a league with racists … if you disagree about gay marriage, disagree about fundamental issues surrounding homosexuality – do you agree with that view?”

 

Morales replied: “I think what’s happening here is this is a new civil rights movement. I mean I think clearly … I believe that gays have as much equal opportunity as we all should have. And I believe that they should be allowed to get married and love equally … But I don’t think everyone else has to believe how we believe. … I think there is a freedom of speech in this country and a freedom of free thought.”

 

There may be two sides to the story, but Brewer indicated which side she prefers. Before speaking with LaBarbera, she told the celebrity gossip TV show “Extra,” “I think it’s so important to embrace equality … and I’ve been a strong supporter of gay rights, same-sex marriage and privacy – politicians on both sides of the aisle [are] finally coming out and saying what should have been said decades ago: that everyone has the right to love who they choose and marry who they choose.”

 

Kincaid observed: “The nature of the bias is evident for everyone to see, however, the bias will take another turn, as journalists will ignore the evidence that the major media have taken one side of the debate. What is significant is the lack of any real major media opposition to this bias.

 

“Even though this event featured all kinds of media celebrities, you will not find the media reporting on themselves, because it would blow their cover – and blow the whistle on the bias they are implementing on a day-to-day basis,” he wrote.

 

LaBarbera said, “This event, like previous ones I had attended, had a ‘gay advocacy’ rather than journalistic feel to it.

 

“Past NLGJA events have featured homosexual journalists — including some working for major media outlets –denigrating pro-family opponents of ‘gay rights,’ and making analogies between covering them and covering hateful racists much like Brewer’s tendentious claim,” he added.

 

“It should be noted that many advocates of homosexual ‘marriage’ and other aspects of ‘gay rights’ – both homosexuals and non-homosexuals alike — reject this extreme characterization of pro-family voices,” LaBarbera observed.

 

Both Morales and Gayle King, co-host of “CBS This Morning” and close friend of Oprah Winfrey, told him “they dispute the idea that opponents of homosexual activism and same-sex marriage are in a league with racists, as Brewer alleged.”

 

But in her remarks Thursday, Morales did indicate the event was linked to political developments.

 

“We are at a turning point. I mean could this event be more perfectly timed? … Next week the Supreme Court will start to hear arguments on two major cases addressing gay rights: of course Proposition 8 (California law), and the Defense of Marriage Act. This is an issue at the forefront of our nation’s collective conscience right now, and making headlines all over the world,” she noted.

 

The Supreme Court heard arguments today on the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, which defines in the state constitution marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman. Tomorrow, the court will consider the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which forbids the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.

Let’s Keep the BSA Biblically Moral


Boy Scout Honor

John R. Houk

© February 2, 2013

 

Many a pundit on the Left and the Right are anticipating the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to announce next week a policy diluting its stand on Biblical Morality by allowing homosexuals to join the organization. Most of the media I have read on this anticipated evil appear to be very supportive of a BSA decision to validate the godless and unchristian lifestyle of homosexuality.

 

I know the BSA has received uncountable protests via snail-mail, email and petitions by faith based people that still believe the Word of God is the Divine Truth:

 

§  AFTAH

 

§  Faith2Action

 

§  American Family Association Petition

 

§  AFA Contact Boy Scouts

 

§  Citizen Link (of Focus on the Family)

 

§  (Undoubted there are more pro-Biblical faith organizations but I stopped my search to move on.)

 

If the BSA indeed follows through with validating the homosexual lifestyle then the BSA is publicly saying Christian values are now irrelevant. I find that shameful!

 

The problem that is going on here is that major corporate sponsors have either pulled their support or are threatening to pull their support of the BSA unless the Scouts become homosexual sin friendly (HERE and HERE).

 

I found two articles that remind us of the original honor that Scouting stood for. Trust me, that honor had little to do with placing a bunch of boys together with a lifestyle that is too often more sexually promiscuous than secular minded heterosexuals. And think, in the case of Scouting you know that deviant adults and/or adolescents have the potential to devolve into a license to do underage sex as happens too often in gay youth camps.

Boy Scouts shouldn’t become ‘Gay Scouts’

 

By Raynard Jackson

01 February 2013 10:26

New Pittsburg Courier

 

(NNPA)—All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. This statement is the best way to express my thoughts and feelings about what the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is constantly going through.


The Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest youth organizations in the U.S., with more than 2.7 million youth members and more than 1 million adult volunteers. It is estimated that more than 110 million Americans have been members of the BSA since in founding in 1910, including me.


The BSA’s stated goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to inculcate typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.


I am fed up with the relentless attacks launched against the BSA by the homosexual community. The reason for the attacks? Because the Boy Scouts of America prohibits avowed gay and lesbian children and adults from participation, citing its principle to be “morally straight.” They also do not allow atheist and agnostics to participate citing its “duty to God principle.”


In 2000, the Supreme Court ruled in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale that Boy Scouts, and all private organizations, have the constitutionally protected right under the First Amendment of freedom of association to set membership standards. In 2004, the BSA adopted a new policy statement, including the following as a “Youth Leadership” policy:


“Boy Scouts of America believes that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed. The conduct of youth members must be in compliance with the Scout Oath and Law, and membership in Boy Scouts of America is contingent upon the willingness to accept Scouting’s values and beliefs. Most boys join Scouting when they are 10 or 11 years old. As they continue in the program, all Scouts are expected to take leadership positions. In the unlikely event that an older boy were to hold himself out as homosexual, he would not be able to continue in a youth leadership position.”

 


Wow, what a terrible group, a group that actually instills values and morals into developing kids based on the principles of Christianity. These are the values that makes remote that a child reared with the values of the Boy Scouts of America will become a non-productive member of society. They teach children that there is a right and a wrong; there are things that are legal, but yet not moral; that the Bible is a great guiding, moral book to base one’s behavior on.


As opposed to constantly trying to destroy the BSA because they have moral objections to homosexuality; why do they not start their own group to indoctrinate the youth into their desired sexual preferences?


They can call their group HIM and HERS. Homosexual Indoctrination of Males (HIM) and Homosexual Enlightenment Regarding She-males (HERS). They are free, as a private organization, to create any rules of membership they choose. And yes, they can discriminate against heterosexuals who stand for Christian values.


I am sick and tired of Christians apologizing for their beliefs. The BSA is not anti-homosexual, but is pro-Christian. I, nor should the BSA, will not apologize for my beliefs and values. I, nor should the BSA, change their values in order to make others feel good.


I find it amazing that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) never opens their mouth when homosexuals discriminate against heterosexuals. Tonya Parker, a Black, homosexual elected judge in Dallas County, Texas, refuses to marry heterosexual couples until she can legally marry. “I do not perform them because it is not an equal application of the law. Period,” she said. I guess the HRC has laryngitis when it comes to discrimination from within their community.


The homosexual agenda has little to do with the BSA, they are just a convenient target; and more to do about them forcing society to accept their personal lifestyle choices. They are free to set up any type of private club they want and indoctrinate anyone who chooses to join.


We, who believe in Christian values, have an obligation to take a principled stand in support of organizations such as the BSA and not leave them to fight this battle alone.


I will be making a personal contribution to the BSA and strongly encourage you to do the same. If not us, who? If not now, when?

When I was a Boy Scout in the early 1960s, I earned a few merit badges and learned some very important life lessons along the way. One of them was the Scout Motto: “Be prepared!”

 

I remember the Scout Oath: “On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.”

 

And I still can recite the Scout Law from memory fifty years later: “A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.”

 

What part of that is ambiguous?

 

For 103 years, the Boy Scouts of America fought to live up to those ideals. No more. After standing for moral and physical purity for more than a century, the organization apparently is prepared to surrender to the dark side of our society. The full BSA board must vote on this, but a statement by the group this week reads as follows: “There would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, and the chartered organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with each organization’s mission, principles or religious beliefs.”

 

For those of us who remember our days in Scouting, it is sad to see the perverse sexualization of the Boy Scouts. And make no mistake: like everything else associated with the pro-homosexual agenda, that is exactly what this is.

 

As a society, we have gone from live-and-let-live to blind tolerance to tacit approval to blatant, outright promotion of deviancy in less than a generation. What seemed ridiculous 20 years ago (same sex marriage) has now morphed into something called “LGBT marriage equality.”

 

Let’s break down that absurd phrase. The L, of course, is for lesbian, meaning that a woman could marry another woman. The G is for gay, which would give a man the right to marry another man. B stands for bisexual. I assume that would mean that a bisexual man should be allowed to marry both a man and a woman. And then there are the T’s, the so-called transgendered among us. These tortured souls don’t know who or what they are, so I suppose “marriage equality” for them means that a man who thinks he’s a woman should be allowed to marry a woman who thinks she’s a man. (Wait, I think that’s already legal.)

 

Activists on the left have mercilessly attacked the Boy Scouts ever since 2000, when the Supreme Court said the Scouts have a right to free association and therefore do not have to accept homosexual members or leaders. That summer, delegates to the Democratic National Convention actually booed a group of Boy Scouts who were simply trying to lead the convention in the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

In another case, recently decided by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, a lower court ruling forbidding the Scouts from operating on city-owned property in San Diego because of their belief in God and sexual purity was unanimously overturned.

 

If, despite solid backing of the Scouts by the federal courts, the bullies in the homosexual lobby can intimidate members of the national BSA board into jettisoning long-held principles, imagine how mercilessly those “local chartered organizations” will be harassed without the covering of their national group.

 

In the life of every great nation, there are windows of opportunity for leadership on moral and cultural issues. America is no exception. We faced such a moral crisis a century and a half ago when attempts to sweep the burning issue of slavery under the rug left American soil soaked with our own blood.

 

Many in government and corporate America believe we need to compromise with evil. They believe in “tolerance” and “inclusion” on such issues as abortion and same-sex marriage. Obviously, they have no stomach for the political and cultural war that rages around them. And sadly, they are willing to watch as iconic institutions like the Boy Scouts of America are destroyed through social engineering.

In Support of Eugene Delgaudio


Eugene Degaudio

John R. Houk

© December 14, 2012

 

You should Google the name Eugene Delgaudio. The inevitable first impression you will from the links provided is that Delgaudio is an evil homophobe. The word “homophobe” would indicate an unnatural fear of homosexuals. However, homosexual activists and Leftists will turn “homophobe” from fear to hate. Thus a homophobe is a person that hates homosexuals. The word “hate” indicates a propensity to act on hate such as verbal diatribes, violence or worse the act of murder.

 

Are there people that hate homosexuals so much that those diatribes that are threatening, a crime of violence or the downright horror of murder will be committed? I stipulate such people are not homophobes, rather these kinds of people are of the malicious minded truly demented in their thinking and worthy of prison or a death sentence whichever is appropriate.

 

How about those people taking a stand against homosexuality because their religious beliefs proclaim the act of sex between two people of the same sex to be morally repugnant? Are these people that hate or fear homosexuality? In the case of Christianity loathing homosexuality is not hate or fear, rather loathing homosexuality is lining up with Father God that calls homosexuals an abomination (Since our current President is pro-same-sex marriage maybe the word could also be ‘Obamanation’).

 

Thus it is quite infuriating when homosexual activists label a person promoting the Biblical Christian of homosexuality as a hating-homophobe.

 

Eugene Delgaudio’s mission in life is to fight the moral acceptance of homosexuality which is viewed by Biblical Christians as a perversion. Delgaudio is only a hater if he speaks and writes that violence and murder should be exacted on homosexuals. Delgaudio is no friend of homosexuality yet he is not a promoter of violence say like Obama’s old friends Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn that spent their youth working to bring down the USA with violent bombings replacing Freedom with Communist despotism.

 

On the other hand, I wonder how many homosexuals or homosexual activists speak or write threats of violence against Eugene Delgaudio? Regardless of threats and vilification by the MSM, homosexual activists, Leftists and even some Conservatives queasy of the well moneyed homosexual agenda proponents; Delgaudio was reelected to his County Commissioner post for the fourth time Loudon County Virginia.

 

After Delgaudio was reelected as Commissioner the homosexual and Leftists came against through the courts.

 

§  Delgaudio sued for using the sick marriage picture of homosexual couple

 

§  Delgaudio is being investigated for using County resources to raise funds

 

Frankly the civil litigation and criminal investigation has all the appearance of the homosexual version of Lawfare to make an attempt to break Delgaudio financially and to make a big effort to silence his Biblically Moral stand against the abomination known as the homosexual lifestyle.

 

So with this back drop Delgaudio is facing it is good to know he is still exposing the consequences of the homosexual agenda. Below is an email I received today sent by Delgaudio’s watchdog organization Public Advocate of the United States.

Washington State residents are experiencing firsthand the horrors that accompany the Homosexual Agenda.

Only days before the anti-marriage referendum passed in the state, a disgusting story surfaced.

“Colleen” Francis — a 45-year-old man who claims to be a woman — was lounging in the women’s sauna at the Evergreen State College pool when a local high school girls’ swim team came in to use the facilities.

The sauna’s glass wall gave “Colleen” full view of the girls while they were changing!

The swim coach threw the man out, but school officials quickly apologized to “Colleen” and insisted he be allowed to continue using the women’s facilities.

College officials claim that his right to violate the women’s rooms is “protected” since Washington State has given homosexuals and transsexuals a superior “protected-class” status.

As disturbing as this is, instances like this are becoming far too common.

And President Obama’s Justice Department is doing its best to make sure this continues.

Not that long ago, Public Advocate alerted pro-Family Americans to the case of “Jennifer.”

This 38-year-old man actually bragged about using the women’s restrooms at the University of Arkansas.

And when actual women complained about “Jennifer” using their facilities, Obama’s Department of Justice rushed to defend his “special rights.”

The Homosexual Lobby is determined to see their agenda anywhere and everywhere.

That’s why the efforts of Public Advocate in states like Washington get more important every day.

And why your support of Public Advocate means more now than ever before.

The Homosexual Lobby won’t settle for the recent passage of homosexual “marriage” in Washington State.

They’ll stop short of nothing but absolute victory for their agenda in the hearts and minds of our children and our country.

But with your help, Public Advocate is fighting back against homosexual “marriage” and the creation of “special rights” for deviants like “Colleen” and “Jennifer.”

For the Family,

Eugene Delgaudio

Will Sandusky Serial Pedophilia Lead to Legalized Man/Boy Sex?


Jerry Sandusky & Bunch Kids

John R. Houk

© July 21, 2012

 

The Homosexual Agenda has gained more and more traction in America over the last few decades. Thanks largely to the promotion of homosexuality by Left-minded Hollywood and Television a homosexual lifestyle has been accepted as normal by a large chunk of Americans.

 

Thanks to homosexual activism the American government has passed special laws that provide equal rights to a subculture that is ungodly and immoral according to the Bible – the Word of God. The more the government protects immorality the more it will grow. Legalized immorality is justified immorality.

 

Divorce has been made easy. Bad marriages have taken place because it is easy to claim irreconcilable differences. Pornography is common on TV and the Internet as protected by Free Speech. Pornography is not Free Speech. Porn is immoral.

 

Largely due the complimenting support of Education Unions and Education activism, homosexuality is taught to our children to be accepted rather than to be vilified as immoral. Leftists and homosexual activists love to dodge the morality of homosexuality because of the problem within the Roman Catholic Church in which celibate Priests have been caught as pedophiles. AND worse the Catholic leadership hierarchy has tried to bury the problem of pedophile Priests by reassigning them rather than defrocking them and turning them over to the police.

 

So does Pedophile Priest problem justify homosexuality? NO! It is still immoral.

 

I have been pointed to an opinion piece by Linda Harvey that shows that the promotion of the deviancy of homosexuality as normal is now infiltrating the safety of our children. She uses the conviction of serial pederast Jerry Sandusky – a former Penn State assistant coach – to drive the point home that the Homosexual Agenda has allowed society to look the other way as an adult male molests young boys in their formative years. Guess what this will lead society to accept just as society began to accept homosexuality in general?

 

That would be the legalization of Man/Boy relationships in which an adult predator can legally solicit sex from a minor boy.

Is Obama creating a pro-gay Boy Scouts of America?

With all the Left Wing Occupy Wall Street (view from Right and Neutral view) you might think an organization like Ernst & Young would not be so cozy with the Obama Administration and the Leftist Change that Administration is shoving down the throat of American voters.

 

Nonetheless, James Turley the global chairman and CEO of the accounting firm Ernst & Young has been cozying up to President Obama  and the President’s Leftist Change Agenda by going after the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) because the youth organization stands by its traditional Family Values by rejecting homosexual leadership among the young boys that make up the BSA.

 

Chuck Norris takes issue with Obama’s pro-homosexual stance and his alienation of the BSA and connects James Turley of Ernst & Young as a joint partner in bringing public acceptance of ungodly homosexuality. Norris does not specifically say so; there is the conspiracy look of money and Leftist politics uniting in the unholy cause of the homosexual agenda.

It’s Time to Find Money to Counter Gay and Leftist Propaganda


Gay Theology Propaganda

John R. Houk

© June 12, 2012

Here is a classic example of Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) propagandizing the normalization of LGBT as in same-sex marriage. The New York Times has an editorial extolling growing support of same-sex marriage by Republicans to let the public know the GOP is no longer out of touch with American culture.

The fact is the percentage of actual homosexuals in America shows that the Left is out of touch with the American reality; which is that LESS THAN 5% of Americans claim to be living a homosexual lifestyle.

This means that the growing support among Republican politicians for the homosexual agenda of same-sex marriage is based entirely on Leftist and homosexual activist propaganda which is primarily being disseminated through the MSM, Hollywood and the small screen of TV. The homosexual agenda has been so successful in promoting homosexuality to the public that the more than 95% of Americans that do not live a homosexual lifestyle are made to feel like bigots by openly accepting the Biblical Moral view of homosexuality which is an abomination in the sight of God.

But what percentage of the population is actually gay or lesbian? With the debate over same-sex marriage again an emerging fault line in American political life, the answer comes as a surprise: A lower number than you might think — and a much, much, much lower one than most Americans believe.

In surveys conducted in 2002 and 2011, pollsters at Gallup found that members of the American public massively overestimated how many people are gay or lesbian. In 2002, a quarter of those surveyed guessed upwards of a quarter of Americans were gay or lesbian (or “homosexual,” the third option given). By 2011, that misperception had only grown, with more than a third of those surveyed now guessing that more than 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian. Women and young adults were most likely to provide high estimates, approximating that 30 percent of the population is gay. Overall, “U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian,” Gallup found. Only 4 percent of all those surveyed in 2011 and about 8 percent of those surveyed in 2002 correctly guessed that fewer than 5 percent of Americans identify as gay or lesbian. (Emphasis Mine)

Such a misunderstanding of the basic demographics of sexual behavior and identity in America has potentially profound implications for the acceptance of the gay-rights agenda.On the one hand, people who overestimate the percent of gay Americans by a factor of 12 seem likely to also wildly overestimate the cultural impact of same-sex marriage. On the other hand, the extraordinary confusion over the percentage of gay people may reflect a triumph of the gay and lesbian movement’s decades-long fight against invisibility and the closet. (Emphasis Mine)

“My first reaction to that, aside from a little chuckle, is that it’s actually a sign of the success of the movement for LGBT rights,” said Stuart Gaffney, a spokesman for the group Marriage Equality USA. “We are a small minority, and we will never have full equality without the support of the majority, and a poll like that suggests the majority is extremely aware of their gay neighbors, coworkers, and friends.”

In recent years, as homosexuality has become less stigmatized, pro-gay rights groups have come around to acknowledging that a smaller percent of people identify themselves as gay than some of the early gay rights rhetoric claimed, based on Alfred Kinsey’s 1948 report, “Sexuality in the Human Male.” His survey research on non-random populations in the immediate post-World War II period concludedthat 10 percent of men “were predominantly homosexual between the ages of 16 and 55” and that 37 percent had had at least one homosexual experience in their lives, but did not get into questions of identity per se. (Emphasis Mine)

Contemporary research in a less homophobic environment has counterintuitively resulted in lower estimates rather than higher ones. The Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law, a gay and lesbian think tank, released a study in April 2011 estimating based on its research that just 1.7 percent of Americans between 18 and 44 identify as gay or lesbian, while another 1.8 percent — predominantly women — identify as bisexual. Far from underestimating the ranks of gay people because of homophobia, these figures included a substantial number of people who remained deeply closeted, such as a quarter of the bisexuals. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey of women between 22 and 44 that questioned more than 13,500 respondents between 2006 and 2008 found very similar numbers: Only 1 percent of the women identified themselves as gay, while 4 percent identified as bisexual. (Emphasis Mine)

Higher numbers can be obtained when asking about lifetime sexual experiences, rather than identity. The Williams Institute found that, overall, an estimated 8.2 percent of the population had engaged in some form same-sex sexual activity. Put another way, 4.7 percent of the population had wandered across the line without coming to think of themselves as either gay or bisexual. Other studies suggest those individuals are, like the bisexuals, mainly women: The same CDC study that found only 1 percent of women identify as lesbian, for example, found that 13 percent of women reported a history of some form of sexual contact with other women.

“Estimates of those who report any lifetime same-sex sexual behavior and any same-sex sexual attraction are substantially higher than estimates of those who identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual,” the Williams Institute’s Gary J. Gates concluded.

One thing’s for sure: it’s hard to imagine the fact that so many think the country is more than a quarter gay or lesbian has no impact on our public policy. (Americans Have No Idea How Few Gay People There Are; by Garance Franke-Ruta; The Atlantic; May 31 2012, 2:17 PM ET)

Now if there are a growing amount of Republicans plugging into the Homosexual Activist and Leftist propaganda in order to bend our society into legitimizing homosexuality as normal, November 2012 is the time for Values Voters to make their voice even with the pressure of the propaganda the MSM exerts.

The NYT article I linked to in the first paragraph suggests that Paul Singer’s – homosexual Republican donor – brainiac creation of a Super PAC with the sole purpose of throwing money behind Congressional Republicans that support same-sex marriage will the homosexual agenda among Conservatives.

Sadly as long Social Values Conservatives continue to fail to counter the propaganda of the Left and Homosexual Activists that homosexuality is normal rather than a deviant sin in the sight of God Almighty, Singer may succeed with his millions of dollars to convince so-called moderate GOP to get on the same-sex train.

I know the MSM, Hollywood, and the small screen TV basically dominate streams of information toward the public; nonetheless we Values Conservatives need to find a way to neutralize the immoral grip of those propagandists that have convinced an overwhelming majority of non-homosexuals that homosexuality is normal.

Christians that have decided to marginalize Leftist control of the Media have developed their cable and non-cable Christian television networks. It is time for Conservatives to do so as well.

Kudos for the Fox Network that has developed the Fox News and Fox Business Channel; however Fox so far is of a singular outlet compared to the rest of the MSM. AND a host of the entertainment programming of the Fox Network and the cable FX network are not exactly developing serious programming promoting Conservative values. Indeed a significant amount of shows – unfortunately even shows that I like – are in the pro-homosexual category. There are issues even on Fox News that the pressure of Political Correctness vetoes reporting if it may rock the boat.

So what is the answer? The answer is obvious. Let’s get some Conservative millionaires and billionaires to invest in the creation of more hard hitting Conservative Networks or News Networks that not only compete with the Left leaning media but to also compete with Fox News to terminate the effects of Political Correctness across the airwaves.

Homosexuality is not normal. This is the case no matter the propaganda from the Bible-hating Left and Homosexual Activists.

Even though it is a bit off the subject here I have to add some other themes that the Mainstream Airwaves have influenced Americans over:

§  Islam is not compatible to the Rights and Liberties spelled out in the U.S. Constitution. Reject the accusation of Islamophobia as a stigma to compare Islamic culture with Constitutional Rights and Laws.

§  The globalist agenda of a One World Government under the auspices of the United Nations (as in Agenda 21 and enforced Multiculturalism) also is not compatible with the U.S. Constitution especially in the matter Sovereignty and the Rule of Law.

§  The Leftist agenda to make gun ownership illegal by American citizens is Unconstitutional. If Leftist desire a gun law change then go through the Amendment process and not cop out with the Living Constitution malarkey to use Activist Judges to make law from the bench concerning gun ownership (good luck with that).

§  Competing Conservative News agencies for that matter go after Judicial Activism that creates laws ex nihilo separate from the Constitution including:

o   Illegal Immigration

o   American Laws for American Courts (ALAC)

o   Overriding the Federalism of State Sovereignty when laws do not contradict the U.S. Constitution

o   I am sure my fellow Conservatives can add to a list of topics that competing Conservative News Networks could counter Leftist propaganda let alone homosexual propaganda.

Homosexuality is More about Man/Boy Pedophilia than Propaganda Suggests


Mad Pedophilia, Communists, Radicals

I recently received this comment (5/9/12) on the old Slant Right on blogger pertaining to the post “Gay Rights and NAMBLA”:

 

Anonymous said…

 

Hi, I’m gay(ish) and I hate Nambla. I am pretty sure about 90% of the gay community does too… and the remaining 10 percent hasn’t heard of them. Nambla, and pedos are in general to be excluded from Gay orginizations… because if a NAMBLA member, or pedo is in a gay rights group, they are most likely using the poor men and women who make up the group as meat shields. The god-Emperor does not condone homosexuality but he does not accept any foul taint and perversion from such horrible men. Alas it is a good number of the priests of christ that molest and sadomize little boys, namely those that follow Catholicism, and a few hat follow Alcholism… alas such heresy should be purged in the name of the all mighty, amen.

 

Wed May 09, 01:17:00 AM 2012 (SlantRight Editor: quoted unedited yet in full disclosure when people comment of the fly spelling and grammar is rarely the prime directive when passion is involved)

 

Now here are the first few paragraphs of the 10/1/09 post that Anonymous was responding to:

 

When you hear of gay or homosexual rights or activists claiming there should be no discrimination against their hedonistic debauchery then think of about the four men busted recently for child pornography. These men were busted by the FBI for involvement in a pedophile ring. It has been insinuated NAMBLA which stands for North American Man/Boy Love Association was probably an influence on the four homosexual pedophile purveyors of child pornography.

NAMBLA is in the mainstream of the Gay Rights movement. Or at least NAMBLA makes that claim. The pedophile organization is not some fringe homosexual group outside the scope of mainstream homosexuality. This is a group that is actively lobbying for State and Federal laws to allow grown men to have sex with boys.

One of the early supporters of NAMBLA is considered such an honored activist in gay rights history his writings have been enshrined in the taxpayer supported Smithsonian Institute. That person is Frank Kameny.

NAMBLA officially does not condone forced sex (i.e. rape) with boys; however it does teach its pedophile network how to persuade impressionable aged boys into sex acts with the molesting pedophile. In my book preying on unsuspecting boys is still a heinous crime. It could change the future of the boy into a Chester the Molester or psychologically scar his conscience for the rest of his life. (READ the REST)

 

My point was that NAMBLA has played a prominent role in homosexual activism. When homosexual organizations began to realize that NAMBLA and other Man/Boy (a huge propaganda term for Man/Boy is intergenerational) organizations was a major stumbling block to achieving the homosexual agenda of acquired political clout, only then did Man/Boy promoters begin to get the boot from adults only homosexual organizations. Even though most homosexual activist organization denounces the Man/Boy homosexual pederasty practice, there still is a large amount of sympathy to legalize a lower age of consent for sex. Obviously this advocacy is a boon to Man/Boy deviants.

 

Now here is my initial response to Anonymous:

 

John Houk said…

 

In reply to Anonymous 5/9/12:

Your statistics concerning most homosexuals detesting Man/Boy relationships advocated by NAMBLA are correct. However, when homosexual activism became legitimized by Left Wing Secular Humanism that desired to delegitimize Christian Morality, your statistics were not the apparent case. NAMBLA was in the forefront of homosexual activism and only was kicked out of homosexual umbrella groups after the realization occurred that the public would never accept Man/Boy homosexuality. The 90% disdain by fellow homosexuals is something that took awhile to achieve, somewhat like homosexual propaganda has made head ways in acceptance of homosexuality by the public.

As to the Man/Boy predators among Catholic Priests, that is an unacceptable practice according to Catholic doctrine. The failure in the Priesthood is in the Catholic hierarchy desiring to protect the clergy-club more than their parishioners. Catholic clergy-pedophiles must be drummed out of the Priesthood and turned over to the Law for prosecution. Too bad there is no prosecution for homosexuality in general. It is a vile ungodly practice, Amen.

 

Thu May 17, 11:28:00 AM 2012 (SlantRight Editor Full disclosure: unlike Anonymous I did perform a spell check and grammar check. I was simply too embarrassed about my errors that made the comment hard to understand.)

 

I have found an article based on empirical data that shows there are a higher percentage of homosexuals involved with pedophilia than has been thought in the past. The data suggests that those that have chosen the debauched lifestyle of homosexuality also have a predilection for the desire for sex with underage children.

 

This means the propaganda that has been used to gain acceptance for homosexuality in the public sector is a big lie designed to desensitize people away from a natural stigma toward the homosexual lifestyle.  Also same propaganda that desensitized the public from abhorring homosexuality is also entering the early stages of desensitizing the public from abhorring homosexual pedophilia.

 

The Homosexual Agenda is all about lies rather than science to justify an illicit lifestyle. It is time for Christians to push back by openly opposing the Homosexual Agenda even if the Mainstream Media and Hollywood/TV tries to portray Biblical Moral Values as bigoted prejudice.

 

Here is an important post showing the connection between the (now Marxist leaning) Democratic Party-Obama Administration commitment to bring the abomination of homosexuality into the mainstream.

 

Solid Snake (Pseudonym) is a champion of exposing the darker activities of the homosexual lifestyle emailed the link of a WND report about the academic study to be published entitled “Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement”. The researcher’s name is Steve Baldwin. Just as a heads up, the Homosexual Agenda propaganda machine will attempt to criticize the study by claiming the research work is the product of homophobia and published by a University with a reputation for anti-homosexual press (Regent University Law Review). The Homosexual Agenda is to denigrate facts by playing the victim of bigotry rather than refuting facts with alternative facts.

Report: Pedophilia more common among ‘gays’

Research purports to reveal ‘dark side’ of homosexual culture

 

By Jon Dougherty

04/29/2002 at 1:00 AM

WND

 

Child molestation and pedophilia occur far more commonly among homosexuals than among heterosexuals on a per capita basis, according to a new study.

 

“Overwhelming evidence supports the belief that homosexuality is a sexual deviancy often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our culture,” wrote Steve Baldwin in, “Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement,” soon to be published by the Regent University Law Review.

 

Baldwin is the executive director of the Council for National Policy in Washington, D.C.

“It is difficult to convey the dark side of the homosexual culture without appearing harsh,” wrote Baldwin. “However, it is time to acknowledge that homosexual behavior threatens the foundation of Western civilization – the nuclear family.”

 

Though the homosexual community and much of the media scoff at such accusations, Baldwin – who chaired the California Assembly’s Education committee, where he fought against support for the homosexual agenda in the state’s public schools – says in his report that homosexual activists’ “efforts to target children both for their own sexual pleasure and to enlarge the homosexual movement” constitute an “unmistakable” attack on “the family unit.”

 

Baldwin’s research is substantiated in a recently completed body of work written by Dr. Judith Reisman, president of the Institute for Media Education and author of numerous authoritative books debunking sexual myths, including “Kinsey, Crimes & Consequences.”

 

In her thesis – also written for the Regent University Law Review – Reisman cited psychologist Eugene Abel, whose research found that homosexuals “sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is occurring from five times greater than the molestation of girls. …” (Emphasis Mine)

 

Abel also found that non-incarcerated “child molesters admitted from 23.4 to 281.7 acts per offender … whose targets were males.”

 

“The rate of homosexual versus heterosexual child sexual abuse is staggering,” said Reisman, who was the principal investigator for an $800,000 Justice Department grant studying child pornography and violence. “Abel’s data of 150.2 boys abused per male homosexual offender finds no equal (yet) in heterosexual violations of 19.8 girls.”

 

Jay Heavener, spokesman for PFLAG – Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, counters that federal crime data refute claims that homosexuals molest children at higher rates than heterosexuals.

 

“According to data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), this claim is false,” he told WND by e-mail. “The gay and lesbian community calls into question any dubious research which flies in the face of our own experience.”

 

And Gary Schoener, a clinical psychologist who has been diagnosing and treating clergy abuse for 28 years, told Salon.com, “There are far more heterosexual cases than homosexual.”

 

In terms of sheer numbers, that may be true. But in terms of numbers of children abused per offender, homosexuals abuse with far greater frequency; and boys, research shows, are the much-preferred target. (Emphasis Mine)

 

Baldwin says evidence he examined disproves the assertion that child molestation is more prevalent among heterosexuals. Both he and Reisman found that media coverage of adult homosexual abuse of minors is also slanted.

 

“The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) recently boasted that although homosexuals are less than two percent of the population, three-fourths of the people who decide the content of the front page of the New York Times are homosexual,” Reisman wrote.

 

That one fact is especially noteworthy, experts point out, given the recent child sex scandals taking place within the American Catholic church.

 

A survey by WorldNetDaily of recent news reports found that rarely did the media describe priestly sexual abuse as “homosexual” or “gay” activity – even though the worst incidents involved male-to-male contact, and a spate of investigative reports has revealed that the Vatican is concerned about an upsurge of homosexuals in seminary schools throughout the world.

 

Gay press promotes sex with children

 

Baldwin says his research not only “confirms that homosexuals molest children at a rate vastly higher than heterosexuals,” but it found that “the mainstream homosexual culture” even “commonly promotes sex with children.”

 

“The editorial board of the leading pedophile academic journal, Paidika, is dominated by prominent homosexual scholars such as San Francisco State University professor John DeCecco, who happens to edit the Journal of Homosexuality,” Baldwin wrote.

 

During his research, he also found:

 

§  The Journal of Homosexuality recently published a special double-issue entitled, “Male Intergenerational Intimacy,” containing many articles portraying sex between men and minor boys as loving relationships. One article said parents should look upon the pedophile who loves their son “not as a rival or competitor, not as a theft of their property, but as a partner in the boy’s upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home.”

 

§  In 1995 the homosexual magazine “Guide” said, “We can be proud that the gay movement has been home to the few voices who have had the courage to say out loud that children are naturally sexual” and “deserve the right to sexual expression with whoever they choose. …” The article went on to say: “Instead of fearing being labeled pedophiles, we must proudly proclaim that sex is good, including children’s sexuality … we must do it for the children’s sake.”

 

§  Larry Kramer, the founder of ACT-UP, a noted homosexual activist group, wrote in his book, “Report from the Holocaust: The Making of an AIDS Activist”: “In those instances where children do have sex with their homosexual elders, be they teachers or anyone else, I submit that often, very often, the child desires the activity, and perhaps even solicits it.”

 

§  In a study of advertisements in the influential homosexual newspaper, The Advocate, Reisman found ads for a “Penetrable Boy Doll … available in three provocative positions. She also found that the number of erotic boy images in each issue of The Advocate averaged 14.

 

§  Homosexual newspapers and travel publications advertise prominently for countries where boy prostitution is heavy, such as Burma, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand. (Emphasis Mine)

 

Homosexuality ‘youth-oriented’?

 

“Research on the homosexual lifestyle confirms it is almost exclusively a youth-oriented culture,” Baldwin wrote. “Very few gays exhibit preference for older men.”

 

“Some admit to focus on teenage boys,” he said, “some on prepubescent boys, and many cross over between categories.”

 

A 1988 study detailed in Baldwin’s report found that most pedophiles even consider themselves to be “gay.” According to the study, “Archives of Sexual Behavior,” some 86 percent of pedophiles described themselves as homosexual or bisexual. Also, the study found, the number of teenage male prostitutes who identify as homosexuals has risen from 10 percent to 60 percent in the past 15 years. (Emphasis Mine)

 

When asked what he thought about critics who attempt to debunk his research, Baldwin said the results speak for themselves.

 

“For them to say this theory is false is to call many of the homosexual movement’s leaders liars,” he said. “Most of my evidence comes right from the gay community.” (Emphasis Mine)

 

“I managed to find enough evidence that my thesis – child molestation is an integral part of the homosexual movement – is a valid thesis,” Baldwin told WorldNetDaily.

 

Other experts have also found a distinct pattern between child sex abusers and the incidence of homosexuality.

 

“How long can psychologists be in denial about the significance of the dark side, and ignore what it implies about the homosexual condition? And there’s a matter of even greater concern. How long will psychologists eagerly throw open the door to gay life for every sexually confused teenager?” writes Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D, on behalf of NARTH – the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality – a group that says it exists to “provide psychological understanding of the cause, treatment and behavior patterns associated with homosexuality, within the boundaries of a civil public dialogue.”

 

The North American Man-Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA, is “a group that openly promotes sex with minor boys and claims that boy-lovers respond to the needs of the boys they love,” Baldwin said in his report.

 

The group is often endorsed by “many of the homosexual movement’s most prominent leaders,” he said. (Emphasis Mine)

 

Advocacy moving to schools

 

Promotion of the “gay and lesbian lifestyle” is increasing in the nation’s public schools.

 

A WND survey of homosexual-oriented websites found that almost every group has some sort of program to “educate” teachers, school administrators and other school employees about the homosexual lifestyle:

 

§  GLSEN – the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network – bills itself as “the largest national network of parents, students, educators and others” specifically formed to end “discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression in K-12 schools. Two recent press released boasted of the Broward County (Fla.) school board approving GLSEN-sponsored “training for teachers.”

 

§  A student activist working with GLSEN officials has managed to “give voice” recently to “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students” at California schools;

 

§  PFLAG has created a national campaign called, “From Our House to the Schoolhouse,” distributing to school officials – among other materials – a booklet entitled, “Just the Facts About Sexual Orientation and Youth: A Primer For Principals, Educators, & School Personnel. [Editor’s note: Readers need the Adobe PDF reader to open and read this file.]

 

Though most school-related programs are sold to administrators and parents as programs designed simply to end persecution of homosexuals and lesbians, none disclose what Baldwin says is compelling evidence that homosexuality is harmful to children.

 

“What … does the academic literature say about the relationship between homosexuality and child molestation? Quite a bit, actually,” he wrote, quoting data compiled by the Family Research Institute: “Scientific studies confirm a strong pedophilic predisposition among homosexuals.” (Emphasis Mine)

 

The institute, after reviewing more than 19 studies and peer-reviewed reports in a 1985 “Psychological Reports” article, found that homosexuals account for between 25 and 40 percent of all child molestation. (Emphasis Mine)

 

“But this number is low,” Baldwin says, “due to the fact that many reporters will not report if a child molester is a homosexual, even if he knows that to be the case.” (Emphasis Mine)

Obama says JESUS wants homosexual "marriage"


Yesterday President Barack Hussein Obama finally pulled up his Left Wing boot straps to say publicly what everyone already knows he believes; viz. that he supports same-sex marriage.

 

 

I am guessing Obama might be seeing the voter writing on the wall and is going full Left Wing tilt on homosexual marriage to inspire homosexuals and his Leftist base to hit the polls on Election Day in November 2012. The irony is BHO is also Conservative – especially Family Values – voters to hit the polls on Election Day as well.

 

Friends this is the kind of junk that Obama was really promising in 2008 when proclaimed he was bringing “Change” to America. That “Change” is really a Socialistic-Moral Relativity transformation that is in direct opposition to Christian principles that most Americans still feel an affinity toward.

 

Gordon James Klingenschmitt the former Chaplain given the boot from the U.S. Navy for daring to pray in the Name of Jesus is organizing a petition campaign to allow voters to express their thoughts on using the Office of the President to extend moral depravity to holy matrimony.

Breaking:  Obama says JESUS wants sodomite “marriage”

President Obama fully endorsed sodomy today, blaming Jesus Christ for his new views, declaring homosexual “marriage” should become “legal.”  But sin will never be legal in the eyes of Almighty God.  It can be forgiven if we repent and believe in Jesus Christ, but sin cannot be made legal.  Obama said, in part:

“I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married…you know, I, you know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated.”

In other words, Obama believes Jesus wants homosexual marriage for America.  His words, not mine.  Read his words again, slowly. 

Does the Golden Rule mean Jesus endorsed sodomy?  Of course not.  In Matthew 19:4-6, Jesus clearly defined marriage as only valid between one man and one woman:  “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?  So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”  In context of Matthew 18:6, Jesus said of those who recruit children into sexual sin:  “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.”  1 Cor 6:9 makes it clear:  “Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral…nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders…will inherit the kingdom of God.”  Obama is a false Bible teacher.

I predicted one year ago that Obama would fully endorse “marriage” for homosexuals, and I repeated that two days ago (as you see below).  Obama now makes sin equal to holiness, which is impossible in the eyes of God.

Obama’s bad move comes just hours after Colorado legislators, North Carolina voters, and Indiana primary voters ALL REJECTED PRO-HOMOSEXUAL ballot initiatives or candidates.  North Carolina voters passed 61 to 39% an amendment to their state Constitution rejecting not only homosexual “marriage” but also rejecting civil unions.   Indiana RINO Senator Dick Lugar routinely supported pro-homosexual judges, and was rejected by Church voters last night.

In good news, my own neighbor and friend, Colorado state representative Mark Waller (R-Colorado Springs) stalled and stopped homosexual “civil unions” bill in the Colorado state house last night, and was featured in the today’s New York Times, thank God.   Reports suggested if a vote were allowed, civil unions may have passed in Colorado, but now they must wait another year, when hopefully Christians will re-take the state senate..

What can be done?  Let’s continue to petition Congress to defend traditional marriage.

VP Joe Biden:  Obama agrees with me on Homosexual Marriage

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Vice President Joe Biden described himself as “absolutely comfortable” with gay couples having the same rights as straight couples.   Then both Biden and senior advisor David Axelrod BOTH claimed President Obama has also personally and fully endorsed homosexual ‘marriage.’

“Look. I am vice president of the United States of America,” Biden said. “The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual – men and women marrying – are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don’t see much of a distinction beyond that.”

Asked whether the Obama administration in a second term would come out in favor of same-sex marriage, Biden replied:  “I can’t speak to that. I don’t know the answer to that,” he said.

Biden’s office then claimed Obama COMPLETELY AGREES with Biden for sodomy.  The Washington Post reports that immediately after that interview, a Biden spokesperson said that the vice president “was saying what the President has said previously — that committed and loving same-sex couples deserve the same rights and protections enjoyed by all Americans, and that we oppose any effort to rollback those rights.”

“That’s why we stopped defending the constitutionality of section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act in legal challenges and support legislation to repeal it,” the aide said. “Beyond that, the Vice President was expressing that he too is evolving on the issue, after meeting so many committed couples and families in this country.”

And Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said via Twitter shortly after Biden spoke: “What VP said-that all married couples should have exactly the same legal rights-is precisely POTUS’s position.”

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  This is proof Obama’s “evolving” views of homosexual marriage have completely matured into full endorsement of sodomy.  Obama is no longer evolving.  His spokesman Axelrod said there is no daylight between Obama himself and “total equality” of sin with holiness.]

Let’s all petition Congress today to OPPOSE sodomite ‘marriage,’ defend the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, and pass an amendment to the Constitution defining marriage in all 50 states as only valid between one man and one woman. . .

Obama’s lawyer says Court should homosexualize ‘marriage’ in all 50 states

The Obama Administration argued last month that homosexual ‘marriage’ was written into the Constitution by our founding fathers, and actually argued against the First Circuit Court of Appeals’ duty to enforce the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

President Obama is now openly trying to force homosexual ‘marriage’ upon all 50 states.   Eyewitnesses report Obama’s twisted court-room arguments in National Review:

“It’s hard to describe how odd it is to hear a Department of Justice lawyer argue in court that a law passed by Congress should be struck down as unconstitutional. It is, after all, the DOJ’s job to defend laws passed by Congress. But as I sat at the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston on Wednesday listening to the appellate arguments for the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) cases, that’s exactly what I heard for 20 minutes from the DOJ lawyer.

“The administration’s abdication does have a silver lining: The House of Representatives retained former solicitor general Paul Clement to defend the law in DOJ’s place. And Clement’s well-earned reputation as advocate extraordinaire was on display Wednesday, as he deftly defended the law and Congress’s prerogative in recognizing the opposite-sex definition of marriage for federal purposes…

“Ultimately, it’s much better that Paul Clement is defending these cases rather than the DOJ, which only pretended to defend DOMA before deciding to jump ship and join the opposition. But still, you have to wonder how the DOJ’s unprecedented decision to attack the constitutionality of a law that it has a constitutional duty to defend will impact the Department in the long-term…

“Does DOMA deserve anything less? It was enacted by huge, bipartisan majorities in both houses (85–14 in the Senate, 342–67 in the House), its constitutionality was affirmed by the DOJ, and it was signed by President Clinton…

“The administration’s stated reason for abandoning DOMA’s defense is that it believes that sexual orientation should be entitled to heightened protection, despite the avalanche of precedent to the contrary. That was [Obama’s] main argument at the First Circuit… (incidentally, the First Circuit is one of the eleven to have already decided the issue).

“Such an odd litigation position can’t be justified by legitimate legal theory. But then again, it seems clear that the administration’s decision didn’t have anything to do with law. At the end of the day, the administration’s decision was pure politics. And that is unfortunate in a nation that is supposed to be of laws, not men. Marriage deserves better, and so do the American people.”  –Dale Schowengerdt

[DR. CHAPS COMMENT:  I couldn’t have said it better.  Obama is now openly trying to force homosexual ‘marriage’ upon all 50 states, through his court-room argument that our founding fathers somehow established sodomy as a civil right in our Constitution.]

Let’s take action now, to demand Congress act to protect traditional marriage.

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)

New York Gov. demands Homosexual Marriage in all 50 States.

The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo demanded homosexual “marriage” be allowed in all 50 states, in a speech to the “Empire State Pride Agenda” activist group this week.   Receiving a standing ovation for more than a minute, Cuomo prepared to run for President in 2016, issuing “a passionate plea on Thursday for other states to follow New York’s lead and allow gay couples to wed,” reports the New York Times.

“Mr. Cuomo demanded that the federal Defense of Marriage Act [DOMA] be repealed. His voice rising in intensity as he spoke, he also called for federal legislation that would bar discrimination against gay men and lesbians…in his most forceful terms to date, Mr. Cuomo called for his counterparts [the other 49 state governors] across the country…to push for the legalization of same-sex marriage in their own statehouses.”

The U.S. Senate Judiciary committee voted to repeal DOMA, and homosexualize the institution of marriage in all 50 states.  The full Senate may vote this week.

ABC News reported:  “the legislation [was] supported by all ten Democrats on the committee.  After that the legislation will go to the full Senate for consideration.” 

Please take action today, by calling both your U.S. Senators and asking them “Please vote NO AND FILIBUSTER the bill S.598 the mislabeled ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ which actually disrespects and homosexualizes the institution of marriage.  Traditional marriage should be protected as defined by God: only valid between one man and one woman.” 

You can reach all 100 Senators by dialing 202-225-3121, and requesting your state.


Don’t have time to make 100 phone calls?  You can fax all 100 Senators and all 435 Congressmen instantly by signing our fax petition (saving you much time) and delivering real faxes to 535 Members.

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)

NEW YORK SUES U.S.A. TO FORCE GAY “MARRIAGE” IN ALL 50 STATES

The attorney general of New York State has sued the rest the USA in federal court, to overturn the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, claiming homosexuals have a right to sodomy under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution.  Laws in 44 other states that define marriage between one man and one woman could be overturned by one federal court in Manhattan.  

Reuters reports:  “In court papers filed on Tuesday in U.S. federal court in Manhattan, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, violates same-sex couples’ right to equal protection under the U.S. Constitution… Schneiderman wrote: ‘By discriminating among married couples based on sexual orientation and sex, DOMA deprives New York of the ability to extend true equality to all marriages valid in the State.'” 

In other words, New York wants the federal law overturned in all 50 states, forcing Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and every state to embrace homosexual “marriage” just so that New York lesbians and gays can receive federal “homosexual bonus pay” by taxing heterosexuals more.  

Reuters explained how homosexual bonus pay scheme would work:  “Schneiderman made his arguments in support of a case brought by Edie Windsor, a woman who sued the United States last year after an inheritance from her former partner was taxed. Windsor, who was married in Canada in 2007, said she had to pay $350,000 in inheritance tax in 2009 after the federal government refused to recognize her marriage.”  [If her lesbian marriage were honored, heterosexuals would be taxed the $350,000 to pay Windsor’s bill.]

Windsor argued she “was forced to pay in violation of the constitutional guarantee of equal protection of the law.”  But our founding fathers punished sodomy as a crime, and never dreamed the Constitution protected homosexual sin.  Furthermore homosexuals already have the equal right to marry, so long as they repent and marry heterosexually as law defines traditional marriage.  This proves they now seek special rights, not equal rights.  

Bottom line:  We need a Constitutional Marriage Amendment to whip New York back into line.  Let’s defend the 1996 DOMA law, and support Michele Bachmann’s call for a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage nationwide, as one man + one woman. 

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)
 
DEMOCRATS IN U.S. SENATE INTRODUCE BILL TO REPEAL 1996 DOMA LAW

While the national media covers only the debt crisis, Democrats in the Senate are attacking traditional marriage between one man and one woman, by attempting to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  Not satisfied with homosexualizing the military, or forcing gay “marriage” in states like New York, radical homosexuals testified on Capitol Hill today demanding homosexual “bonus pay” with more than 1,100 federal benefits that reward their acts of sodomy in all 50 states, taxing heterosexuals more to pay homosexuals to engage in immorality. 

On Tuesday Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) introduced, and President Obama quickly  endorsed a new bill S.598 to promote homosexual marriage, mislabeled the “Respect for Marriage Act” (RFMA) to end federal law that defines traditional marriage between one man and one woman.  White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday “President Obama is proud to support the Respect for Marriage Act,” which disrespects traditional marriage by enforcing homosexual marriage upon all 50 states. His views are no longer “evolving” rather
Obama is now fully out of the closet promoting gay marriage nationwide.

At last week’s hearings 5 pro-homosexual witnesses and just 3 conservatives argued for and against repealing DOMA, and passing RFMA, including 2 high-profile gay activists, Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, and Evan Wolfson, founder and executive director of Freedom to Marry. Joining them will be Susan Murray, an activist attorney from Vermont, and complainers Ron Wallen of California and Andrew Sorbo of Connecticut, both of whom were denied homosexual bonus pay, and bonus Social Security checks (funded by heterosexual tax-payers) when their homosexual “marriage” partners died. 

Testifying in favor of keeping DOMA intact were pro-marriage heroes Ed Whelan, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Austin Nimocks, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, and Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy for Focus on the Family.

44 States have passed laws like DOMA defining marriage between one man and one woman, but if RFMA is passed and the federal DOMA law repealed, all 44 state laws could be in danger of being overturned in court.  Just imagine Texas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Mississippi, etc. being forced to issue homosexual “marriage” licenses, or forced to recognize and pay your tax benefits to homosexuals “married” in New York.  

Let’s take a stand, by petitioning all 100 Senators to defend DOMA, and reject RFMA. 

Please select here to SIGN URGENT PETITION to PASS THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT defining marriage between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN.  Vote against S.598 that would repeal DOMA, and protect DOMA in court, and we will auto-fax your petition to all 100 Senators and 435 Congressmen (saving you much time!)
 
Friends, our nation will soon endorse homosexual “marriage” in all 50 states, if your Senator doesn’t take a stand to defend DOMA, since Obama won’t.  Let’s take a stand today, and demand Senators defend the 1996 DOMA law in court.

 

God Bless you, in Jesus’ name,

Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD

Examining Homosexual Myths


Word Coming From God - Bible sm

I found this post on the Pilgrim Passing blog entitled, “Examining Homosexual Myths”. This is a post of two essays that even handily refutes many of the claims of homosexual activists. The essays use a non-confrontational approach which is excellent because I am often accused of a confrontational approach on posts confronting the homosexual agenda. Hence I am cross posting this on my blogs. Thanks for the good work Sean.

Examining Homosexual Myths

This is a two-part article; the first part discusses the lie that Homosexuality is genetic and therefore the Homosexual is unable to opt out of their lifestyle.


The second article examines and debunks some of the major myths concerning Homosexuality which are being fostered upon North American society by
the Homosexual Agenda‘s influence in the educational system, the mainstream media, and the entertainment industries.

Is It Possible for Homosexuals to Change?

 

By Sue Bohlin

 

 

Mike {1} was marching in a Gay Pride parade when God got a hold of him. He had been high for four days and his “buzz” suddenly evaporated as he heard a voice in his head say, “You don’t have to live like this.” He knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was God offering him a way out. He put down his Gay Pride sign, left the parade, sat down in a nearby stairwell, and repented of his rebellion.

He gave his heart to Jesus Christ and starting walking out of homosexuality that day. Today, several years later, he is married with a child, and living a very different kind of life. Not just on the outside; his heart was changed from the inside out.

 

Randy was on a self-destructive path of drug and alcohol abuse and homosexual activity. When he told his mother he was gay, she threw him out of the house, and the only place he could find belonging, safety, and identity was the gay community. As he spent more and more time “escaping” the pain in his life through sex and alcohol, he began to realize how bad his life was. He wanted to die but God had something else in mind.

 

Randy was invited to a Bible study where he met a man who had left the gay lifestyle and was living a changed life. For the first time he honestly called out and said, “God, please help me.”

 

One of his friends became a Christian. He asked her about homosexuality and was angered by her initial response. She said, “I now believe it is a sin–but God wouldn’t call it a sin if there weren’t something better.” Randy eventually realized that he was a sinner who needed God’s love and grace, and in 1992 he trusted Christ as his Savior. Two months later, he was led to Living Hope, an organization that helps people walk out of homosexuality through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. He left his homosexual identity behind and embraced his true identity as a child of God, committed to holiness and purity. Randy is now director of that ministry and is helping others walk out of homosexuality. He’s not perfect, he’s still growing . . . just like me and every other Christian I know. But the “something better” God had in mind for him is an intimacy with Christ that is breathtaking.

Randy brings glory to God every day of his life by living out the abiding truth that change is possible.

 

Stories of Women
Carol grew up in a religious home with parents whose standards were too strict to allow her to please them. But she was smart, and a good student, and her teachers gave her the affirmation and encouragement her heart longed for. She developed very strong bonds with her teachers, some of which became profound emotional dependencies.

 

In graduate school, she was hit by the unexpected pain of loneliness and emptiness. Carol got into an intense relationship with a married woman, facing completely new temptations. She was totally unprepared to resist the strength of same-gender attraction, and quickly found herself emotionally and physically involved in a relationship she couldn’t believe was happening. Now she was not only emotionally needy, she was shackled by deep shame, woundedness, and guilt.

 

A friend told her about a ministry to those dealing with same-sex attraction, and it was like finding a door to another world. Through the support she found there, Carol was challenged to identify the lies of Satan which she had believed her whole life and replace them with the truth of Scripture. God is renewing her mind, meeting her deep heart-needs, and bringing her to a place of freedom and hope.

 

Diane’s story is different. She spent eighteen years in a committed lesbian relationship with another woman she believed to be her soul-mate. They went through a commitment ceremony in a gay church, and raised a daughter together. She enjoyed a position of leadership as a bright and articulate spokesperson for a gay church.

 

Through all those years, Diane’s mother was steadfast in three things. She loved Diane unconditionally. She never backed down about her belief that her daughter’s lifestyle was sinful because God says it’s wrong. And third, she prayed faithfully for her daughter.

 

Diane and her partner sought the Lord about everything except their sexuality. At one point, they were praying together for wisdom and truth about a situation that had nothing to do with their relationship. God answered their prayer in an unexpected way; He showed them the truth about the sinful nature of their relationship. It was a terribly painful and unwelcome discovery to learn that they had been deceived. Together, they decided out of obedience to God to separate and break off their relationship. It’s still painful, even as Diane experiences God’s healing touch in the deepest parts of her wounded soul. He’s changing Diane and Carol from the inside out.

 

Two Claims for Change
Some people deal with same-sex attraction by pretending it’s not there. Denial is unfortunately the time-honored “Christian” response. But this is not the way God wants us to deal with problems; Psalm 51:6 says, “Surely you desire truth in my inmost parts.” Acknowledging one has a homosexual orientation is like seeing the red light on your car’s dashboard; it means something is wrong somewhere. A homosexual orientation isn’t the actual problem; it’s the symptom of a deeper issue–legitimate, God-given needs for relationship and intimacy that have been channeled in unhealthy and sinful directions.

 

But it is not a simple matter, and it would be disrespectful to imply that there is an easy solution to the complex issue of homosexuality. Among those who claim that change is possible, there are two main schools of thought on how to get there.

 

The first and most recommended treatment (within the Denominational religious system) for homosexuality is reparative therapy. There is a lot of wisdom to be found here because many therapists believe that homosexuality has its roots in hurtful relationship patterns, especially with family members, and many homosexual men and women report exactly that. But reparative therapy is often just behavior modification, and it deals only with the flesh, that part of us independent of God.

Reparative therapy can make people feel better, but it can’t bring true inner healing.

 

The second, and I believe best, way to bring about real and lasting change is a redemptive approach. Ministries that disciple men and women in intimate relationship with Jesus Christ are able to lead them into inner healing because God transforms His people. It’s excruciatingly difficult to leave homosexuality without support. Fortunately, even for people who do not live in an area where there is an Exodus referral ministry, there are online support forums that are almost as powerful as face-to-face groups. I especially recommend the one at http://www.livehope.org. There are also some wonderful books available, particularly Coming Out of Homosexuality by Bob Davies, and Someone I Love is Gay by Anita Worthen and Bob Davies. Another excellent book is You Don’t Have to Be Gay by Jeff Konrad. But discipleship is hard work, and there is no simple and easy fix.

 

The Path to True Change
The most effective route to real, lasting change for those caught in same-gender attraction is a redemptive approach. This means discipleship, being taught and encouraged and held accountable to develop intimacy with Christ. Interestingly, it doesn’t seem to matter what the particular stronghold is in a person’s life–whether it be homosexuality, gluttony, drug dependency, compulsive gambling or shopping, alcoholism, sexual addiction, or any other stronghold–the most effective solution is the same: intimacy with Christ.

 

True discipleship is hard work. And God even gives us the energy for discipleship! But it takes tremendous self-discipline to choose to operate in the Spirit instead of in our own flesh, to depend on God’s strength instead of our own.

The real battle is in the mind.

 

The steps to overcoming homosexuality also apply to overcoming any stronghold.

 

First, the person has to stop the sinful behavior. It’s best to ask for God’s help. This is no different from the requirement for any drug or alcohol abuse treatment. You can’t work on a problem when you’re still totally controlled by it.

 

The second step is to work on learning what the Bible says about who you are in Christ. Just as people learning to identify counterfeit money examine real currency so they can spot the fakes, the struggler needs to fill his mind with God’s Word so he can enter into his true identity as a beloved, valuable child of God.

 

The third step is working on the thought life, since this is where the battle is. It’s important to identify Satan’s lies playing as tapes in one’s head, and stop the tape player! Then, deliberately replace the lies with the truth. Instead of “I’m never going to change,” repeat the truthful promise that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13). Instead of obsessing over the aching and longing for the unhealthy and sinful behavior, fill your mind with praise and worship and Scripture.

 

Next, face the fact that it feels lousy! When we stop trying to meet our needs in our own ways, we start experiencing the emotional pain that our strongholds had covered up. When it feels really really bad, we are at that very point where God can make the biggest difference. Ask, What is my true need? What is it my heart is truly longing for? Go to Jesus and let Him meet your deepest heart-needs. Let Him direct you to get your divinely-designed needs for relationship with other people met in godly ways.

 

This is where powerful healing happens.

 

Ex-Ex-gays
For the last several years, people who had left homosexuality have slowly but surely gained a hearing in telling their stories. Word is getting out: change is possible!

 

And there are also the voices of the frustrated and disillusioned souls who tried to leave homosexuality, who tried to change, and gave up. There’s even a name for it: “Ex ex-gays.” Their stories are full of tremendous pain, and some have even lost their faith over it. What happened?

 

Well, I think the same thing that happened to people who tried AA but couldn’t stop drinking, or those who tried Weigh Down Workshop but couldn’t lose weight. I have a friend who was in Weigh Down Workshop, and it didn’t do a thing for her. The problem is, she never made the commitment to “die to self,”  to use a Scriptural term {2}. She never got to the point of saying, “Jesus, I choose You over food. I choose a holy relationship with You over an unhealthy relationship with my appetite. And I will do whatever it takes to allow You to change my heart.”

 

Many people who tried to change their homosexuality could win contests for praying and reading their Bibles. They really did try very very hard. But the prayers are often misdirected: “God, change me. Take away my desires. Let me start liking people of the opposite sex.” Unfortunately, as well-intentioned as this prayer is, it’s a lot like trying to get rid of dandelions in your back yard by mowing them. They keep coming back because you’re not dealing with their roots. The basic cause of a homosexual orientation isn’t genetics or choice; it’s a wrong response to being hurt. It’s about protecting oneself and trying to get legitimate needs met in ways God never intended. True change can only happen with the hard work of submitting to God, allowing Him to expose the deep hurts and needs of one’s heart, which means facing horrible pain, and inviting Him to bring healing to those wounded places. That’s why intimacy with Christ is the answer. A wise friend observed that homosexuality is the fruit of sinful ways of dealing with pain–sinful because they cut us off from the One who can heal and meet our needs, sinful because they place us at the center of our universe and we don’t belong there. Jesus does.

 

I hope you can see that real change is hard and it costs a great deal because it requires strong motivation, hard work, and perseverance. But hundreds of former homosexuals have found a large degree of change, attaining abstinence from homosexual behaviors, lessening of homosexual temptations, strengthening their sense of masculine or feminine identity, correcting distorted styles of relating with members of the same and opposite gender. Some former homosexuals marry and some don’t, but marriage is not the measuring stick; spiritual growth and obedience are.

 

The bottom line is, change is possible.

Homosexual Myths

 

By Sue Bohlin

 

In this essay we’ll be looking at some of the homosexual myths that have pervaded our culture, and hopefully answering their arguments. Much of this material is taken from Joe Dallas’ excellent book, A Strong Delusion: Confronting the “Gay Christian” Movement.(1) While the information in this essay may prove helpful, it is our prayer that you will be able to share it calmly and compassionately, remembering that homosexuality isn’t just a political and moral issue; it is also about people who are badly hurting.

 

10% of the Population Is Homosexual.
In 1948, Dr. Alfred Kinsey released a study called Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, claiming that between 10 and 47% of the male population was homosexual.(2) He got his figures from a pool of 5,300 male subject that he represented as your average “Joe College” student. Many of the men who gave him the data, though, actually consisted of sex offenders, prisoners, pimps, hold-up men, thieves, male prostitutes and other criminals, and hundreds of gay activists.(3) The 10% figure was widely circulated by Harry Hay, the father of the homosexual “civil rights” movement, urging that homosexuality be seen no longer as an act of sodomy but as a 10% minority class.(4)

 

Alfred C. Kinsey

 

Kinsey’s figures were exposed as completely false immediately afterwards, and by many other scientists since. The actual figure is closer to 2-3%.(5) But the 10% number has been so often reported in the press that most people think it’s valid. It’s not.

 

People Are Born Gay.

 

Ann Landers

 

Ann Landers said it, and millions of people believe it. The problem is, the data’s not there to support it. There are three ways to test for inborn traits: twin studies, brain dissections, and gene “linkage” studies.(6) Twin studies show that something other than genetics must account for homosexuality, because nearly half of the identical twin studied didn’t have the same sexual preference. If homosexuality were inherited, identical twins should either be both straight or both gay. Besides, none of the twin studies have been replicated, and other twin studies have produced completely different results.(7) Dr. Simon LeVay’s famous study on the brains of dead subjects yielded questionable results regarding its accuracy. He wasn’t sure of the sexual orientation of the people in the study, and Dr. LeVay even admits he doesn’t know if the changes in the brain structures were the cause *of* homosexuality, or caused *by* homosexuality.(8) Finally, an early study attempting to show a link between homosexuality and the X- chromosome has yet to be replicated, and a second study actually contradicted the findings of the first.(9) Even if homosexuality were someday proven to be genetically related, *inborn* does not necessarily mean *normal*. Some children are born with cystic fibrosis, but that doesn’t make it a normal condition.

 

Inborn tendencies toward certain behaviors (such as homosexuality) do not make those behaviors moral. Tendencies toward alcoholism, obesity, and violence are now thought to be genetically influenced, but they are not good behaviors. People born with tendencies toward these behaviors have to fight hard against their natural temptations to drunkenness, gluttony, and physical rage.

 

And since we are born as sinners into a fallen world, we have to deal with the consequences of the Fall. Just because we’re born with something doesn’t mean it’s normal. It’s not true that “God makes some people gay.” All of us have effects of the Fall we need to deal with.

 

View an excellent in-depth article exposing the lie of “born gay” currently being propogated by the Homosexual Agenda:

“The Born Gay Hoax”

 

What’s Wrong with Two Loving, Committed Men or Women Being Legally Married?
There are two aspects to marriage: the legal and the spiritual. Marriage is more than a social convention, like being “best friends” with somebody, because heterosexual marriage usually results in the production of children. Marriage is a legal institution in order to offer protection for women and children. Women need to have the freedom to devote their time and energies to be the primary nurturers and caretakers of children without being forced to be breadwinners as well. God’s plan is that children grow up in families who provide for them, protect them, and wrap them in security.

 

Because gay or lesbian couples are by nature unable to reproduce, they do not need the legal protection of marriage to provide a safe place for the production and raising of children. Apart from the sexual aspect of a gay relationship, what they have is really “best friend” status, and that does not require legal protection.

 

Gay Marriage is right

 

Of course, a growing number of gay couples are seeking to have a child together, either by adoption, artificial insemination, or surrogate mothering. Despite the fact that they have to resort to an outside procedure in order to become parents, the presence of adults plus children in an ad hoc household should not automatically secure official recognition of their relationship as a family. There is a movement in our culture which seeks to redefine “family” any way we want, but with a profound lack of discernment about the long-term effects on the people involved. Gay parents are making a dangerous statement to their children: lesbian mothers are saying that fathers are not important, and homosexual fathers are saying that mothers are not important. More and more social observers see the importance of both fathers and mothers in children’s lives; one of their roles is to teach boys what it means to be a boy and teach girls what it means to be a girl.

 

The other aspect of marriage is of a spiritual nature. Granted, this response to the gay marriage argument won’t make any difference to people who are unconcerned about spiritual things, but there are a lot of gays who care very deeply about God and long for a relationship with Him. The marriage relationship, both its emotional and especially its sexual components, is designed to serve as an earthbound illustration of the relationship between Christ and His bride, the church.(10) Just as there is a mystical oneness between a man and a woman, who are very different from each other, so there is a mystical unity between two very different, very “other” beings–the eternal Son of God and us mortal, creaturely humans. Marriage as God designed it is like the almost improbable union of butterfly and buffalo, or fire and water. But homosexual relationships are the coming together of two like individuals; the dynamic of unity and diversity in heterosexual marriage is completely missing, and therefore so is the spiritual dimension that is so intrinsic to the purpose of marriage. Both on an emotional and a physical level, the sameness of male and male, or female and female, demonstrates that homosexual relationships do not reflect the spiritual parable that marriage is meant to be. God wants marriage partners to complement, not to mirror, each other. The concept of gay marriage doesn’t work, whether we look at it on a social level or a spiritual one.

 

Jesus Said Nothing about Homosexuality.
Whether from a pulpit or at a gay rights event, gay activists like to point out that Jesus never addressed the issue of homosexuality; instead, He was more interested in love. Their point is that if Jesus didn’t specifically forbid a behavior, then who are we to judge those who engage in it?

 

This argument assumes that the Gospels are more important than the rest of the books in the New Testament, that only the recorded sayings of Jesus matter. But John’s gospel itself assures us that it is not an exhaustive record of all that Jesus said and did, which means there was a lot left out!(11) The gospels don’t record that Jesus condemned wife-beating or incest; does that make them OK? Furthermore, the remaining books of the New Testament are no less authoritative than the gospels. All scripture is inspired by God, not just the books with red letters in the text. Specific prohibitions against homosexual behavior in Romans 1:26-27 and 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10 are every bit as God-ordained as what is recorded in the gospels.

 

We do know, however, that Jesus spoke in specific terms about God’s created intent for human sexuality: “From the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; and the two shall be one flesh. . . What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matt. 19:4-6). God’s plan is holy heterosexuality, and Jesus spelled it out.

 

The Levitical laws against homosexual behavior are not valid today.
Leviticus 18:22 says, “Thou shalt not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; it is an abomination.” Gay theologians argue that the term “abomination” is generally associated with idolatry and the Canaanite religious practice of cult prostitution, and thus God did not prohibit the kind of homosexuality we see today.

 

Other sexual sins such as adultery and incest are also prohibited in the same chapters where the prohibitions against homosexuality are found. All sexual sin is forbidden by both Old and New Testament, completely apart from the Levitical codes, because it is a moral issue. It is true that we are not bound by the rules and rituals in Leviticus that marked Yahweh’s people by their separation from the world; however, the nature of sexual sin has not changed because immorality is an affront to the holiness and purity of God Himself. Just because most of Leviticus doesn’t apply to Christians today doesn’t mean none of it does.

 

The argument that the word “abomination” is connected with idolatry is well answered by examining Proverbs 6:16-19, which describes what else the Lord considers abominations: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises evil imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaks lies, and a man who sows discord among brothers. Idolatry plays no part in these abominations. The argument doesn’t hold water.

 

If the practices in Leviticus 18 and 20 are condemned because of their association with idolatry, then it logically follows that they would be permissible if they were committed apart from idolatry. That would mean incest, adultery, bestiality, and child sacrifice (all of which are listed in these chapters) are only condemned when associated with idolatry; otherwise, they are allowable. No responsible reader of these passages would agree with such a premise.(12)

 

Calling Homosexuality a Sin Is Judging, and Judging Is a Sin.
Josh McDowell says that the most often-quoted Bible verse used to be John 3:16, but now that tolerance has become the ultimate virtue, the verse we hear quoted the most is “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” (Matt. 7:1) The person who calls homosexual activity wrong is called a bigot and a homophobe, and even those who don’t believe in the Bible can be heard to quote the “Judge not” verse.

 

When Jesus said “Do not judge, or you too will be judged,” the context makes it plain that He was talking about setting ourselves up as judge of another person, while blind to our own sinfulness as we point out another’s sin. There’s no doubt about it, there is a grievous amount of self-righteousness in the way the church treats those struggling with the temptations of homosexual longings. But there is a difference between agreeing with the standard of Scripture when it declares homosexuality wrong, and personally condemning an individual because of his sin. Agreeing with God about something isn’t necessarily judging.

 

InPlainSite.org Note: Contrary to popular beliefs.. the Bible makes some very straight forward statements about ‘judging’.

See “Judge Not”

 

Imagine I’m speeding down the highway, and I get pulled over by a police officer. He approaches my car and, after checking my license and registration, he says, “You broke the speed limit back there, ma’am.” Can you imagine a citizen indignantly leveling a politically correct charge at the officer: “Hey, you’re judging me! Judge not, lest ye be judged!’” The policeman is simply pointing out that I broke the law. He’s not judging my character, he’s comparing my behavior to the standard of the law. It’s not judging when we restate what God has said about His moral law, either. What is sin is to look down our noses at someone who falls into a different sin than we do. That’s judging.

 

The Romans 1 Passage on Homosexuality Does Not Describe True Homosexuals, but Heterosexuals Who Indulge in Homosexual


Behavior That Is Not Natural to Them.

Romans 1:26-27 says, “God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.” Some gay theologians try to get around the clear prohibition against both gay and lesbian homosexuality by explaining that the real sin Paul is talking about here is straight people who indulge in homosexual acts, because it’s not natural to them. Homosexuality, they maintain, is not a sin for true homosexuals.

 

But there is nothing in this passage that suggests a distinction between “true” homosexuals and “false” ones. Paul describes the homosexual behavior itself as unnatural, regardless of who commits it. In fact, he chooses unusual words for men and women, Greek words that most emphasize the biology of being a male and a female. The behavior described in this passage is unnatural for males and females; sexual orientation isn’t the issue at all. He is saying that homosexuality is biologically unnatural; not just unnatural to heterosexuals, but unnatural to anyone.

 

Furthermore, Romans 1 describes men “inflamed with lust” for one another. This would hardly seem to indicate men who were straight by nature but experimenting with gay sex.(13) You really have to do some mental gymnastics to make Romans 1 anything other than what a plain reading leads us to understand all homosexual activity is sin.

 

Preaching Against Homosexuality Causes Gay Teenagers to Commit Suicide.
I received an e-mail from someone who assured me that the blood of gay teenagers was on my hands because saying that homosexuality is wrong makes people kill themselves. The belief that gay teenagers are at high risk for suicide is largely inspired by a 1989 report by a special federal task force on youth and suicide. This report stated three things; first, that gay and lesbian youths account for one third of all teenage suicides; second, that suicide is the leading cause of death among gay teenagers, and third, gay teens who commit suicide do so because of “internalized homophobia” and violence directed at them.(14) This report has been cited over and over in both gay and mainstream publications.

San Francisco gay activist Paul Gibson wrote this report based on research so shoddy that when it was submitted to Dr. Louis Sullivan, the former Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Sullivan officially distanced himself and his department from it.(15) The report’s numbers, both its data and its conclusions, are extremely questionable. Part of the report cites an author claiming that as many as 3,000 gay youths kill themselves each year. But that’s over a thousand more than the total number of teen suicides in the first place! Gibson exaggerated his numbers when he said that one third of all teen suicides are committed by gay youth. He got this figure by looking at gay surveys taken at drop-in centers for troubled teens, many of which were gay-oriented, which revealed that gay teens had two to four times the suicidal tendencies of straight kids. Gibson multiplied this higher figure by the disputed Kinsey figure of a 10% homosexual population to produce his figure that 30% of all youth suicides are gay. David Shaffer, a Columbia University psychiatrist who specializes in teen suicides, pored over this study and said, “I struggled for a long time over Gibson’s mathematics, but in the end, it seemed more hocus-pocus than math.”(15)

 

View “Homosexuality and Teen Suicide”, from Touchstone Magazine.

 

The report’s conclusions are contradicted by other, more credible reports. Researchers at the University of California-San Diego interviewed the survivors of 283 suicides for a 1986 study. 133 of those who died were under 30, and only 7 percent were gay and they were all over 21. In another study at Columbia University of 107 teenage boy suicides, only three were known to be gay, and two of those died in a suicide pact. When the Gallup organization interviewed almost 700 teenagers who knew a teen who had committed suicide, not one mentioned sexuality as part of the problem. Those who had come close to killing themselves mainly cited boy-girl problems or low self-esteem.(17)

 

Gibson didn’t use a heterosexual control group in his study. Conclusions and statistics are bound to be skewed without a control group. When psychiatrist David Shaffer examined the case histories of the gay teens who committed suicides in Gibson’s report, he found the same issues that straight kids wrestle with before suicide: “The stories were the same: a court appearance scheduled for the day of the death; prolonged depression; drug and alcohol problems; etc.”(18)

 

Dr. Davis Shaffer

 

That any teenager experiences so much pain that he takes his life is a tragedy, regardless of the reason. But it’s not fair to lay the responsibility for gay suicides, the few that there are, on those who agree with God that it’s wrong and harmful behavior.

Savage does NOT Want You to Bully Homosexuals, BUT


Dan Savage

Savage BULLIES Christians

John R. Houk

© May 3, 2012

 

My fellow Christians, you need to be made aware of a homosexual activist by the name of Dan Savage. His last name is very appropriate because he savagely has been promoting the homosexual lifestyle in Public High Schools across the nation while also condemning Christianity in a blasphemous manner.

 

What do you think the ACLU or the morons for Separation of Church and State would do if a Christian Minister came to a High School speaking function to lay out the Biblical reasons why homosexual is an ungodly lifestyle choice? YES! I wrote “choice.” Homosexuality is not something a person is born with in their DNA; rather homosexuality is a lifestyle choice.

 

You and I both know that organizations like the ACLU would be all up in a School Districts face for allowing religion to be shared on taxpayer property like a Public School, right? I tell you what! For a blasphemous homosexual denigrator of Christianity like Dan Savage is essentially preaching his religion by condemning Christianity by name to justify the morality of the homosexual lifestyle.

 

If you hear or read that Dan Savage is coming to a High School or worse – a Middle School or Elementary School – YOU need to get on the phone, write a letter and/or show up in person to protest the allowance of this homosexual to condemn Christianity to justify homosexuality.

 

Savage is hitting High Schools because of an agenda to make people aware of bullying against homosexuals in Public School. You can guess I am against singling out those poor homosexual victims for protection against bullying. Instead an anti-bullying campaign should be waged on ALL levels of bullying in the Public School. By “levels” I mean homosexuality, being a Geek, for not being popular, for being handicapped and a numerable of other heinous reasons one person or group of people bully another person or group of kids.

 

Below are some videos and articles about Dan Savages campaign against “bullying” of homosexuals by condemning Christianity to justify homosexuality.

Anti-Bully Advocate Dan Savage Bullies High School Kids With Profane Bible Rant

Todd Starnes: As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy assed.”

The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”

The father of two students who attended the high school journalism conference where White House-endorsed “anti-bullying” advocate Dan Savage attacked the Bible and Christianity has spoken out vehemently against Savage and against the conference organizers.

 

“My son and daughter both attend Arrowhead Christian High School in Redlands, CA,” Philip Naman told Breitbart News. “They were at the event.

 

“My son is the first boy you see leaving on the video.  My daughter is right behind him.  They felt that they were there to hear about journalism and this man’s fight against bullying.  They had no idea, and neither did I, of who Dan Savage actually was.

 

“As he started to insult the children’s God, Bible, and choice of lifestyle, my son felt he had enough and calmly got up to leave. My daughter followed him and then the rest of their 22 classmates all got up and left.

 

“After they had left the room Dan Savage made his derogatory remarks in a cowardly fashion about them not being able to take it.”

 

Naman says that organizers failed to provide satisfactory answers as to why Savage had been allowed to speak in the first place.

 

“The attitude of the conference coordinators was as disturbing as Dan Savage’s,” he says. “They reportedly said that as journalists the kids should have been able to sit there and take it all in. They felt the only thing that they had failed at was to not clearly tell the attending schools about Dan Savage. If they had to warn the schools, why would they let him speak?

 

In addition, Naman says, some of Savage’s remarks were sexual in nature, and inappropriate for an audience of high school students.

 

“He made lewd references to his mate in Speedos–something about having to be pried off of him to come to the session. In any context, speaking to highschoolers of any sexual type, that is flat out wrong. My 16-year-old daughter was there.

 

“This puke felt at ease enough to speak like that in front of a little girl. What a pig.”

Students Walk Out on Dan Savage

Editor’s note: This story contains graphic language.

 

A group of high school journalism students attending a conference called “Journalism on the Edge” in Seattle over the weekend felt they were pushed over the edge by syndicated sex advice columnist Dan Savage.

 

Savage, the creator of the two-year-old It Gets Better Project, which encourages teens struggling with same-sex attractions to embrace homosexuality, was invited to give a keynote address last Friday at the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention.

 

Students were expecting him to talk about bullying. But they also got an earful about birth control, sex, and Savage’s opinions on the Bible.

 

A 17-year-old from California who was attending with half a dozen other students from her high school yearbook staff, was one of several students to walk out in the middle of Savage’s speech.

 

“The first thing he told the audience was, ‘I hope you’re all using birth control!’ ” she recalled. Then “he said there are people using the Bible as an excuse for gay bullying, because it says in Leviticus and Romans that being gay is wrong. Right after that, he said we can ignore all the ‘B.S.’ in the Bible.

 

“I was thinking, ‘This is not going a good direction at all,’ Then he started going off about the Bible. He said somehow the Bible was pro-slavery. I’m really shy. I’m not really someone to, like, stir up anything. But all of a sudden I just blurted out, ‘That’s bull!’ ”

 

As she and several other students walked out of the auditorium, Savage noticed them leaving and called them “pansies.”

 

Though recordings of the keynote speech are unavailable, Savage has made similar comments in the past, which can be found on YouTube. Among them:

 

“Most people that you wind up arguing with about religion and homosexuality have not ever read the Bible without their, you know, moron glasses on.”

 

“If you believe it is the divinely inspired word of God, if you believe in the literal truth of the Bible, I challenge you to read the first five (expletive) pages. There are two creation myths in Genesis.”

 

“We ignore the (expletive) in the Bible about race, about slavery, and we’re going to have to get there for homosexuality.”

 

The student’s father is a public school teacher. Though he said Savage’s comments were inappropriate, he thinks the organizers of the conference are ultimately responsible.

 

“I’m well-versed in the rules of the game, the captive-audience ethic,” he said. “You have a bunch of kids. They’re required to go to school. They don’t have the option of walking out on you as a teacher, so you guard your speech.

 

“If Dan Savage was a teacher, they’d suspend him without pay for this behavior,” he added. “He didn’t take account of who his audience was. If he was doing this with a bunch of college journalism kids, that would be a different story — that’s more rough and tumble. How many of the kids who didn’t walk out felt backed into a corner? To me, that’s bullying behavior. It has all the symptoms, as far as I’m concerned.”
